June 30, 2020


UPPSALA, Sweden, June 30, 2020 —Swedish sound pioneer Dirac today announced a corporate collaboration with Klipsch®, a tech-driven premium global audio company, to enhance upcoming Klipsch earphones with Dirac’s latest digital audio solutions. The integration of Dirac’s software with Klipsch’s premium speaker hardware will establish new performance standards across Klipsch earphones, demonstrating the ability to level-up any listening experience through the use of pioneering digital audio solutions.

 According to the companies, the first result of this collaboration will make its debut this fall and will leverage Dirac’s sound optimization algorithms – which boost every detail of the music and unleash the full potential of the earphones.

 “Dirac has long been a pioneer in the home theater, automotive, and mobile market, working with the industries’ most well-respected brands,” said Lars Isaksson, Business Director at Dirac. “Collaboration with Klipsch – a legendary acoustics pioneer – further establishes our position as an innovator in the headphone market and reasserts our commitment to working closely with premium brands to leverage the latest in digital audio to elevate hardware performance to new levels.”

 Dirac’s sound optimization solution corrects the impulse and frequency response of any headphone to upgrade its musical staging, clarity, voice intelligibility, and bass fidelity. The solution reveals even the most subtle beats, tones and sounds that can be lost during the playback process to produce a listening experience more true to the artists’ intent.

 The Dirac and Klipsch engineering teams collaborated closely to tailor and customize Dirac’s sound optimization solutions specifically to Klipsch earphone hardware to ensure peak performance and maximum degree of audio upgrade.

 “Klipsch is the preferred choice of audiophiles and aficionados around the world, thanks in large part to our unwavering commitment to engineering excellence and innovation,” said Vlad Grodzinskiy, Sr. Product Manager at Klipsch. “By working with Dirac, we combine our decades of headphone expertise with their digital audio expertise to introduce to our customers a new level of listening experience across Klipsch headphones. Dirac shares our commitment to excellence and innovation, and we look forward to continued collaboration.”

 The upcoming Klipsch earphones are designed for True Comfort™, True Performance™, and True Wireless™, and deliver audiophile-grade sound, seamless connectivity and advanced functionality for people on the go.
