Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Earbuds review


Klipsch first launched its T5 True Wireless buds in 2019 with the iconic Zippo-like case. In 2020, it followed up with the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless earbuds, and we were fortunate enough to get a pair in from Klipsch for this review.

Design

Klipsch went a long way towards improving the design of its true wireless headphones with the follow-up to the T5 series. Not only are the buds more compact but the T5 II case is also smaller. It feels much better in your pocket now, and even better, the buds no longer stick far out of your ears like the previous model.

Of course, the Zippo-inspired case is the real show stopper with the T5 II True Wireless earbuds. It has a classic refined style while also feeling heavy-duty and premium in your hand. Besides looking good, it also uses a USB-C charging port on the back and features three LED lights to show how much of a charge is remaining in the case.

There’s really only two drawbacks to this beautiful case. First, it is still quite hefty despite its smaller size. You’re definitely going to feel this in your pocket while walking around. Secondly, it doesn’t support wireless charging. That may not be a big deal for some of you, but it’s worth noting.

Comfort

Klipsch uses a patented oval ear tip on its earbuds and I absolutely love it. I always find that Klipsch makes some of the most comfortable buds to wear, and this is a big reason why.

User Experience

The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless earbuds use physical buttons to control music playback and answer calls. The buttons themselves work fine, but I found they require a little more pressure to push than I’d like. This resulted in me either needing to hold the bud while pressing the button or else I’d just keep jamming it into my ear every time I pushed on them. So while it’s functional, I wouldn’t exactly call it ideal.

One of the features I was happy to see the T5 II True Wireless buds add is Transparency Mode, which allows outside noise in to be aware of your surroundings or to have conversations. Unfortunately, I could barely tell a difference whether I had it enabled or disabled. I’d love to see them adjust this so that the “High” setting in the app allows in more sound, because the “High” setting is more what I would expect from “Low” in Transparency Mode.

Another helpful feature I’d love to see added is a sensor that automatically pauses or resumes your music when the buds are removed from your ear. This would be less of an issue if Transparency Mode worked better, but when I need to remove the buds or a singular bud to have conversations it would be great if it paused the song for me as well.

Besides that, the T5 II True Wireless buds function great. I never ran into any issues and they stayed in my ears well.

App

As someone who has used Klipsch headphones over the years, I have been waiting for the Klipsch Connect app to launch for a long time. It seemed to have been delayed for years, but I’m glad to say that it has been out for a while now and the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless are supported by it.
