About this deal

Obviously, they sound great, but the thing I really like is that they look great too - with almost ornament-like styling they don't stick out in a room and blend in with existing decor. The most evident is bass distortions at loud volume; the Three II is not the best choice for a loud house party. For general use, it’s going to please its listeners with its rich low end, precise high end, and solid dynamics performance. This is not a true ‘everyman’ product but it is an extremely good one nevertheless and for this reason, the Klipsch comes Highly Recommended.

Their speakers are generally easy to drive and have real "live feeling," for a relatively small amount of money. The JBL Xtreme 3 is a slightly better speaker than the Klipsch The Three II, though, they have different strengths. This means there is no UPnP, AirPlay or Chromecast but, equally, you do get some inputs that I’ve been bemoaning the absence of on other products recently.The workmanship and matching of the elements are exemplary, thanks to which Klipsch The Three II looks impressive and can be liked. It proved almost impossible to achieve stable drop-out free playback with either TIDAL or Deezer and the results were entirely unsatisfying. Unlike the Klipsch The One II, it features Phono Pre-Amp and ground inputs so you can connect a turntable to the speaker. The combination of a very elegant wood with a copper control panel and a black knitted grille makes a great impression, strongly referring to the “golden” era of Hi-Fi equipment.

We have a couple of these in the office for entertainment during the day, and one down by my workbench in the warehouse, I can easily jump between them with very little interruption, and they possess great ease of use. What is most impressive about this is that there’s very little sense of there being a bass driver (singular) at work, let alone passive radiators. Klipsch makes a voice assistant speaker in the form of the visually very similar The Three Google Assistant (no prizes for guessing which of the voice control protocols it supports) but the Three II does without any form of network capability at all. At high volume, it especially suffers; this isn’t a speaker for loud house parties, and it’s not ideal for fans of electronic music or hip-hop.But things weren’t so hot at the other end of the spectrum; records sounded dull and lifeless in treble terms. The built-in Bluetooth module allows you to wirelessly connect to a smartphone or tablet, which means streaming from music services ( Spotify, Tidal, etc. With award-winning acoustics and mid-century modern design, the Klipsch Heritage Wireless Three II tabletop stereo can connect to almost anything, meaning you can bring your music to life from virtually any source - anywhere in your home. So go ahead, connect your turntable, computer, CD player, smartphone, or tablet and enjoy superior stereo sound.

To make your upgrade hassle free, we can take back your older equipment in part exchange against the cost of new equipment. For example, you're able to customize its sound and connect it with other devices to spread audio throughout your home. Klipsch is world renowned for their ultra-dynamic home audio systems, professional cinemas, and commercial venues.

The remote also has a standby function, and if you’re using Bluetooth or USB sources it will allow you to jump to the next or previous track of the current playlist. On the whole, the Klipsch Three II is a very likeable proposition that’ll be great for kitchens, home offices, bedrooms and other secondary listening environments. Unfortunately, there aren't any sound customization features like a graphic EQ or presets you can use to tweak its sound to your liking.

It's also better-built, with an IPX7 rating for water resistance, though we don't currently test for this.

Klipsch The Three II earns some credit here for delivering a bit of stereo sound, even if the listener has to be pretty close to the device to perceive it. However, the Klipsch can get significantly louder than the JBL, with slightly less compression present at max volume, resulting in cleaner audio at louder volume levels. At just over a foot wide and seven inches high, this beautifully-crafted tabletop stereo system can be placed anywhere in your home.
