Klipsch The Fives review


A one-stop shop for home audio

Punchy presentation ; Good features set ; Versatile nature

Uneven tonality ; Not the most organised presentation

The Fives offer sonic performance to match their lengthy feature list, if not exactly their ambitious moniker

Klipsch The Fives review: Soundbar killers


The soundbar was born as an easy plug-and-play solution to offer good audio quality in a simple device that didn't ask you to pick up a degree in audio design from the local community college. Soundbars have since come to dominate home theater audio,...

Powerful, balanced, true stereo sound Excellent multimedia audio experience Stellar phantom center channel Beautiful design Multiple connection options

May not fit in every home theater setup

The Fives are an audiophile’s dream packed in a soundbar killer. Not only will they outperform a single soundbar solution, but they’ll give multi-speaker soundbar systems a run for their money. If you care about this quality of your home theater sound,...

Klipsch The Fives Review


It's not often that we review powered bookshelf speakers these days, and it's even rarer when they cost $799. But we test a fair number of soundbars in this price range, and with The Fives, Klipsch aims to provide a hearty, left/right channel...

Excellent sound signature with crisp, detailed highs and round, rich bass depth Handsome design, with removable tweed grilles Lots of connectivity options, including Bluetooth, HDMI, Optical, and an input for turntables 192kHz/24-bit decoding from USB...

Expensive No app or EQ support (yet)

The Fives from Klipsch look and sound fantastic, with far more connectivity options than your standard pair of bookshelf speakers.

The Klipsch Fives are a complete audio system that includes everything the buyer needs to bring great sound to the home or office.

Appearance and Cork Base ; Compact Size ; Full Range Sound ; Ease of Operation

I can highly recommend the Klipsch Fives for any listening environment in-home or office. The Fives have huge reserves of performance and sound.

Klipsch The Fives review: These Bluetooth bookshelf speakers deliver smooth, refined sound


Ever since 1946, when Paul Klipsch began selling his patented Klipschorn speakers, the company that bears his name has been inextricably linked with horn-based designs. As he discovered a decade earlier while comparing horn-loaded and cone-based...

Smooth, refined, sophisticated sound Extensive connection options Extremely well built

Bass is slightly overemphasized, sometimes a bit bloated Mids and highs are often a tad recessed or even slightly veiled LED indicators are hard to see if you're directly in front of the speakers

The Fives present a smooth, refined sound that's a bit bass-heavy with slightly recessed mids and highs.

Klipsch The Fives Powered Speaker System Review


I'm all about simplicity so I welcomed The Fives with open arms. A follow-up to The Sixes Klipsch introduced a couple years ago, the new speakers are smaller and take connectivity to the next level with the addition of an ARC (audio return...

Versatile Easy to set up Solid construction Good sound with powerful bass

No tone controls

The Fives accommodate a variety of audio setups without the need for an outboard amp or receiver and deliver pleasing sound with rich, powerful bass.

Consumer review (

Klipsch the fives after a lot of research.


Bought these to replace a ageing Bose 2.1 system and didn't want to go down the sound bar route. They sound and look great next to my LG CX . I picked the matte black ones as I liked the golden front covers and the matte black matched the tv. I'm blown...

Great speaker and amazing support!


Superb built quality and really warm sound. You won't need a subwoofer with these ones and you might have to update the firmware to get the 'bass cut' option to ensure your neighbours don't complain. One thing to look out for is the 'primary' switch...

Beautiful sound, wonderfully made!


I had read some reviews on these speakers but they were all based in the US. But I decided to take the plunge as Richer Sounds offered to take them back if they didn't work out. The range of connections has me covered for everything. The HDMI...
