An audiophiles choice

dilworthdude, Amazon
9 September 2013
  • Summary: I carefully studied speaker choices by doing a 2 day blind listening study. I sat in a darkened room as I listened to various types of music from different sources (CD-LP). The sales assistant switched between speakers on cue from my hand signals. After spending several hours over a two day period I narrowed it down to two different speakers. When I asked which they were I found them both to be Klipsch speakers.

The right speaker for my decware zen amp.

2 April 2013
  • Summary: Needed a high efficiency speaker for a new decware zen 6 watt per side tube amp. I wanted the best I could get and got that for a price reduction that was greatly appreciated by me. These speakers are fine furniture grade pieces for my room. They are like timeless works of vintage art. The sound is crisp and expansive. I am thrilled to listen to my large collection of all types of music as if the band were in my room with me, no kidding simpley amazing.

Musical nirvana

Rockbl, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • Summary: I went through a long process before arriving at these fine speakers. Tried small bookshelf Klipsch speakers first. They had remarkable stereo imaging and a very nice sound, but.... the sound was "small" and a bit too bright, somewhat lacking in midrange and bass (not surprisingly). Then I tried good quality tower speakers, the PSB Image T6. These are front-ported and heavy as a brick wall. I let them break in for many hours. Maybe my room was too small for them.

VERRY HAPPY

KYLE, Crutchfield
19 July 2012
  • Summary: I read reviews that stated they were lacking in bass response. I have no issues with the sound in any range. Granted I'm running a 12 inch Klipsch sub that pairs well with the speakers. I turned the sub off and still loved the range of the speakers. From Sarah Brightman to Slayer, these are great!
  • Pros: Great sound, classic looks.
  • Cons: none

There's nothing else like Klipsch

John T. Price, Amazon
8 April 2012
  • Summary: I own a pair of these Heresy's (I bought used, not from Amazon) and I can say they are the best speakers I've ever owned. I've had Advents, JBLs, Electro Voice, Altec, and several other lesser brands. There is just something about Klipsch that keeps me coming back to them. First, the sound. The horn loaded tweeter and midrange are both exceptional. Unless you've heard something similar, it is hard to envision just the amount of difference they make.

These speakers rock!

Badtone, Amazon
30 March 2012
  • Summary: OK; the Heresy III speakers are a love/hate entity. I love them; the supposed lack of bass is overcome by placement against the back wall, near a corner, at least for me. They will never "thump", but bass tones are apparent, strong and clear. More importantly, the sofa is vibrating righteously as I'm listening. These speakers have plenty of punch. The high frequencies are clear and balanced well.

Now THIS is music!

Marty Gillis, Amazon
27 March 2012
  • Summary: I have spent the last 9 years going through a multitude of speakers, searching for the "perfect speaker" for myself. I had been trying to capture "The Sound" that was stuck deep within my memory of our old Magnavox console with it's tube amp, and dual 12's and Horns. Over the years as I was able to try some pretty decent speaker/amp combos I just never hit upon THE speaker that brought me right back to 1965. Well, my search is over!

Good speaker and a classic in it's own right,

Code Monkey, Amazon
8 March 2012
  • Summary: I own a few pair of Klipsch Heritage speakers and I've always used the Heresy as a center channel. I have K-Horns, Chorus II's, Forte II's, Cornwall II's and Quartets, so I'm a bit familiar with the limitations. The bass roll off on these speakers is somewhere between 50 - 58 Hz, the material of the cabinet is irrelevant, it's the less than 2.0 cubic feet of cabinet volume that gives them the high roll off.
