Klipsch’s The One II and The Three II wireless speakers mix modern clout and old-school cool

Hot little numbers

Fed up with modern wireless speakers trying to blend into your home environment with curvy designs and knitted bodysocks? Then try the Klipsch The One II (£260) and the Klipsch The Three II (£395). Weird names aside, these boxy beauties marry high-end audio output with stylish classic design. The One II at just 33×14cm nonetheless packs a pair of 57mm full-range drivers, and a 114mm woofer. You can fire your tunes at it via Bluetooth 4.0, or connect up kit via the 3.5mm audio input – all the while cooing at the real wood veneer and tactile metal knobs and switches. The depicted Three II ramps things up further with dual-opposed bass radiators, an MM phono stage for vinyl fiends, and a USB digital input that works alongside 192kHz/24-bit decoding for high-res audio bliss. Feast your ears on the pair as of August 2019.
