KLH Launches Its New Ultimate One Headphones with MTV as a Spotlight

full?d=1560894162.jpg

(June 18, 2019) KLH has spent the last 12 months making serious waves in the audio world, celebrating the establishment of new ownership and launching a slew of new products. Last week, the company officially released one of those new products: the all-new Ultimate One Headphones.

The Ultimate One might be forged to deliver refined sound, but it has zero issue doubling as total eye candy. The headphones’ open-air over-ear cups are crafted using deliciously rich real ebony wood, which not only looks great but reinforces true sonic integrity. And its high-quality leather surfaces – found on the headband and ear-cups – feature hand stitching backed by dual-layer memory foam. As a total package, the Ultimate One drips with classic refinement right down to the most minute of details, including its complementary protective hard-sided black leather travel case and a soft velour carry bag.

Musically speaking, the headphones utilizes 2-inch pure beryllium drivers for seriously deep reaching performance (18Hz-22kHz). Overall sensitivity is 97dB and the included 2-meter detachable 3.5mm cable with removable 1/4-inch adapter makes for a package that can be used with a wide variety of systems.

As part of its launch promotion, KLH was featured as an official “2019 MTV Movie and TV Awards” Celebrity Gift Bag Sponsor. The awards show, which aired yesterday on MTV, was originally recorded on June 15th at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

“Our design goal with the KLH Ultimate One was to deliver a rich, enveloping musical experience that, simply put, elevates the soul. Given the amount of overwhelmingly enthusiastic responses we have received from critics, celebrities and consumers, we have achieved just that,” said KLH CEO and President David P. Kelley. “We are delighted to be the headphone sponsor of the “2019 MTV Movie & TV Awards” Celebrity Gift Bag and couldn’t imagine a more prominent and fitting event to help us celebrate our launch of the KLH Ultimate One worldwide.”

The KLH Ultimate One has a price tag of $299 and ships with a solid two-year standard warranty. For more information, visit www.klhaudio.com.

This is pretty cool! I never would've thought the KLH brand would come out with headphones such as these.
They seem to be promising sound wise, too : )

KLH? I had some KLH speakers back in the 80s that were ok sounding but the cabinets vibrated when you pushed the volume so didn't sound so great loud. These headphones look really nice. Look forward to a review Todd

Looking forward to these, thanks, Todd!

Tony, I heard KLH at AXPONA and found them interesting. A lively, forward sound without a hint of shrillness. A real standout-type of presentation.

Don’t forget. This isn’t the same company. New leadership and new head designers... lots of vets from Klipsch.

I’ve heard the new speakers too. First off, they’re gorgeous looking. But they also have a very compelling sound!
