Sony WF-1000XM4 could get dethroned by these new true wireless earbuds

Legacy audio brand Klipsch has unveiled a new set of true wireless earbuds called the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless ANC which don’t just offer active noise cancellation – they let you pause and play your audio by tracking your head movements.

Klipsch’s new earbuds are set to rival the Sony WF-1000XM4 and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds in price and performance when they drop in September for £299 / €349 / $299 (around AU$400), but the head-tracking playback controls could be an added edge.

On top of the Bragi Moves AI system that Klipsch says will continue to offer new functionality over the lifetime of the earbuds, the T5 II will also offer Qi-compatible wireless charging with up to 7 hours of battery life with ANC turned off and 5 with it on, plus another 21 hours of battery life in case (15 hours with ANC turned on).
