Designed from the most functional and premium materials
available, the Heritage HP-3 headphones feature die-cast steel, milled wood,
premium leathers, and machined aluminum components. Boasting a 52mm KG-520
biodynamic driver housed in a back-vented design, the HP3 headphones deliver
unsurpassed acoustic performance.
52mm Bio Dynamic Drivers

removable sheepskin ear cushions
Solid-wood, triple-vented ear cups add natural warmth and
character. Angled sheepskin ear pads provide perfect depth and distress
naturally with age. A genuine hand-stitched cowhide headband adds quality,
strength, and becomes more pliable over time. Hand-assembled with visible
copper nuts and bolts, our Heritage headphones boast a classic
aesthetic that's built to last.
KLIPSCH DYNAMIC SOUND
Crafted with one engineering goal in mind: achieving high
efficiency, low distortion, full-range Klipsch loudspeaker sound, the Heritage
Headphones deliberately tugs on your emotions; extracting every detail from
studio recordings and revealing both presence and detail without sacrificing
bass. Featuring a recessed 52mm biodynamic driver, the Heritage HP-3 expands
the soundstage to mimic the imaging characteristics of speakers instead of
Proper acoustic venting drives the powerful and smooth
delivery of the Heritage HP-3. Back-vented to the outside world as well as
through the front baffle, the drivers can breathe and allow ambient noise to
fuse seamlessly with the rhythm of your music, creating a natural presentation.
Precisely vented between the front of the driver and directly behind the ear
pad through a vortex guide, the Heritage HP-3 reduces pressure in your ears,
and creates a consistent performance for any head or ear shape.
52MM FREE-EDGE BIODYNAMIC DRIVERS
Driven by a pair of 52mm biodynamic drivers with more than
one tesla of magnetic flux density, the Heritage HP-3 decreases distortion and
provides superb dynamic range. Using a proprietary mixture of biocellulose and
inorganic fiber, the biodynamic drivers achieve incredible levels of balance
and control throughout the full frequency spectrum. Additionally, the urethane
rubber surrounds create a driver that stays solid and rigid, moving like a
piston instead of rocking and tilting like typical headphone drivers. This
free-edge design further reduces tonal coloration and improves clarity.
EASY TO DRIVE
Compared to other audiophile-grade headphones, the Heritage
HP-3 is vastly different because of its high efficiency, one of Paul W.
Klipsch’s original founding principles in loudspeaker design. During the
headphone’s acoustical development, it was vital that it could be driven by
virtually any source playing any content. With a flat, low impedance, the Heritage
HP-3 will pair well with both high-end amplifiers as well as standard
While most headphones are built for sleeping on a plane, the Klipsch Heritage HP-3 headphones comes pre-packaged with a custom solid-steel rod headphone stand, short (1.37m) and long (2.5m) detachable braided nylon cables, and a custom-fit 1/4” adapter. With a design this beautiful, these headphones are meant to be displayed and listened to, not stored in a bag inside a drawer.
