Audio company Klipsch announced today that its next generation of Heritage Wireless speakers will have Google Assistant enabled. It’s still pretty uncommon for higher-end audio companies to include Google Assistant, which is why seeing Klipsch incorporate it is notable.
While the new Heritage Wireless speakers — called The Three and The One — feature Bluetooth and Google Assistant, because they are based off mid-century modern design, they still don’t quite look like they’re from this century. They are made from wood veneer and have copper switches and knobs. The Three is a stereo tabletop with an integrated subwoofer to provide bass. It will cost $499 in the US, and will be available this fall. Meanwhile, The One is a smaller tabletop speaker with a rechargeable battery. It will cost $349, and will be available in spring 2019.
