Maybe earbud charging cases don't have to look terrible – TechCrunch



Since the advent of bluetooth earbuds, charging case have been utilitarian, at best. Understandable. I suspect few, if any, buy the things based on how their cases look. For many of us, however, headphones are the one piece of tech aside from a smartphone (and perhaps, wearable) we never leave the house without.

When they're not bad, the design is largely benign. Take the AirPods. Perfectly fine and unofficial design that brings to mind nothing more than some glide dental floss. Good on the Klipsch for trying something different (along with another notable exception in Sennheiser's pricey Momentum). I can't speak to the sound quality, comfort or battery life of the T5 (just being shown off for the first time at CES next week), but it's not nice looking travel case you've got there.

Gizmodo's comparison to a Zippo light is pretty spot-on. And being perfectly honest, there was a time in my life (let's call it "high school") when I, a life-long non-smoker, carried around a Zippo as an accessory. I learned a few of the snap to open tricks. I'm not proud.

Anyway, the T5 will run you $ 199, which puts them toward the higher end of the current crop of bluetooth earbuds. The sound quality on Klipsch's stuff seems to be pretty solid, so you're probably in for a decent set of buds. They're due out over the summer.
