Summary: I purchased my 1st pair of klipsch Heresys in Alberta, Canada in the early 1980's. I sold them due to my move to Hawaii in 1985 and at 52 lbs. each, moving them wasn't an option open for me at the time. I very recently bought a pair of Heresy's from the original owners who bought them in 1967. These Heresys are in perfect shape. Not a scratch nor a mark on them. They also sound as good as they look.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Setup, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I purchased my 1st pair of Klipsch Heresy speakers in the mid-seventies in Alberta, Canada. I sold them due to my move to Kailua, Hawaii. At 52 lbs. each, moving them was NOT an option for me at the time. I replaced them last week after having owned several pairs of speakers. This is like meeting up with an old and faithful friend after a long absence. Paul W. Klipsch called these Heresys due to using a 12" woofer as opposed to a folded bass horn.
Summary: I purchased my 1st pair of Heresys in 1974. They were totally outstanding. Yesterday, I bought my 2nd pair as I had to sell my 1st pair due to relocation. These incredible speakers remain faithful no matter when they were built. I have been an audiophile for over 40 years and have yet to anything that even comes close to Klipsch Heresys. I'm sure there is something better however, you would have to spend a lot more than $1600.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, Great Sound Quality
Summary: This one's Sound Stage is just right. Unbelievable at it may sound, these Heresy III's are replacing my Reference Monitors which cost three times as much. As a former Sound Engineer and New Yorker who attends many live performances, I'm keenly aware of how real musical instruments and vocalists sound stage. This is where most speakers just get it wrong. Electrostatics make everything sound big, very big.
Summary: I gave the Heresy high marks for features because it offers two sets of connections for biamping, a magnetically attached grill and a nice base that tilts the speakers up. Biamping is using two different amps to drive the speakers, one to the low end and another for mids & highs. The two sets of speaker inputs are connected via metal strips. You want to leave these in place for regular use. They will be removed when biamping so each amp gets it's designated connection.
Summary: I'm 18 yrs old. My family has had these since before I can remember, they still work perfectly, and I have yet to hear any speakers that can outmatch these. That even includes the 20 ft tall "stacks of speakers" as i like to call them that your local club house DJ uses. These are about 2 feet tall and as long as you take care of them they will live as long as you.
Summary: As a life long musician I always longed for better audio system speakers. I am totally thrilled with my new Klipsch Heresy III speakers. While they may not have the same low bass extension as the much larger Cornwall, they still are so much better than the Infinity SM-102 speakers I had before. For acoustic jazz the mid range and treble just sing on tunes from Dave Brubeck and Bill Evans, and the bass while only listed as -3db at 58 Hz, is still quite good.
Summary: The Heresy III is a truly amazing little speaker, I use thrm for everything from Bolero to the movie XXX ( I like Vin Diesel movie) Although the lower limit id 58 Hz, everything is crisp and clear. These little guys provide tremendous sound ifromr really small floor standing speaker, Hmm...very efficient, very high quality, great tonality, kind of expensive...all in all it is a Kliosch Heitage Soeaker.
