Klipsch Picks aptX® for its First-Ever Bluetooth® Headphones

Audio history-maker Klipsch finds in aptX the right sound

Cambridge, UK and Sunnyvale, California, USA - 31st August 2012 - Continuing its momentum into the premium audio market segment, CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) today announced yet another deployment of CSR aptX audio codec technology, this time in the new Klipsch® Image ONE™ Bluetooth stereo headphones. The Klipsch Image ONE Bluetooth is a noise-isolating, on-ear stereo headphone design and among the first to feature an Apple®-based microphone and remote control functions.


The Image ONE™ is the first Bluetooth stereo headphone product that Klipsch has introduced, and thanks to aptX, offers wired sound quality with wire-free convenience. Anthony Murray, Business Group SVP of CSR commented: "Klipsch has been providing premium audio products for the past 65 years and continues to pioneer new product developments in consumer electronics. So, when introducing their first Bluetooth stereo product, aptX was an obvious choice to enable high-quality audio over a Bluetooth link, ensuring that users have the best wireless listening experience possible."

This announcement is further evidence of the rapid acceleration in the industry adoption of aptX. Other recent aptX milestones include deployments in products from Samsung, including tablets and headsets, as well as from HTC, Motorola, Nokia, Monster, Sennheiser, Creative, and many others. CSR aptX audio coding technology solves the problem of inferior Bluetooth audio quality, delivering improved, high-fidelity sound comparable to the CD quality consumers have come to expect from their electronic devices and home entertainment systems.
