Klipsch and McLaren collab on Groove speaker

As the official headphone and portable audio partner of McLaren, Klipsch’s engineers have teamed up with the Formula 1 Team and come up with the Klipsch Groove McLaren Edition Portable Bluetooth Speaker, said to: “combine McLaren’s unparalleled design ethos and technical innovation with Klipsch’s legendary high-fidelity audio and unparalleled comfort”.

Dust and splash proof, the Groove sports McLaren’s hallmark speedmark and Papaya Orange accents, a special perforated metal grille that showcases its acoustic components, a protective anti-skid rubber inlay with integrated, embossed control buttons and a racing-inspired tire blanket zip case to keep the speaker safe when not in use.

Housing a rechargeable lithium battery – which is quoted as delivering up to eight hours playing time – the Bluetooth 5-enabled speaker features one 76mm full-range tweeter and two 50mm side-firing oval-shaped passive bass radiators. Wired connection is also available via its 3.5mm input. It can remember up to eight previously connected Bluetooth devices for quick reconnection. It comes with a power adapter that charges the speaker twice as fast as the standard Klipsch Groove.

Available to buy now for £180, you can find out more about the Klipsch Groove here .
