Klipsch Teams With Lou Reed on Headphones
Klipsch this week announced that it has teamed with rock legend Lou Reed on a new set of headphones, the Klipsch Signature Audio Edition Lou Reed X10i headphones.
The product, which will arrive next month, is a customized version of Reed's favorite Klipsch headphones.
“I have been a fan of Klipsch products for eons,” Reed said as part of the announcement. “I’ve always admired the unhyped bass, along with the clarity, depth of detail and extraordinary comfort of the company’s headphones. With Klipsch’s help, my dream headphone will soon be available to all of my fans – a serious model for the serious listener.”
“Being able to work so closely with Lou Reed on a project such as this is a dream come true for our brand and his fans,” Mike Klipsch, president of global operations for Klipsch, said in a statement. “65 years ago, Paul W. Klipsch laid the foundation to recreate the powerful, emotional and memorable live music experience for all Klipsch listeners. We continue to strive for the same today and are honored to now have a unique sound solution connected to a true music legend.”
The Lou Reed Klipsch headphones will arrive Dec. 10 at $399.99; the first 50 customers to pre-order the headphones at Klipsch.com will receive a signed copy of "Lulu," the new album on which Reed collaborated with Metallica.
