Klipsch KMC 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Music System
Inspired by the sounds of the Klipsch Music Center—among the five most-ticketed live venues in the world—the KMC 3 portable Bluetooth speaker won 2014 Digital Trends Recommended Product awards for their design and sound quality.
Powerful, Room-Filling Sound
The KMC 1 combines dual full-range drivers with passive radiators. This setup gives the bass, treble, and midrange a balanced presentation that prevents one from washing out the other. With more than triple the power of the KMC 1, the KMC 3 system propels music even through loud environments, such as pool parties. It also enhances the low end with a built-in subwoofer, giving you a beat you can feel.
Wireless or Wired Music Streaming
Bluetooth pairs with a wide variety of enabled sources, such as smartphones, tablets, and MP3 players. Both systems also include a charge-only USB power to keep devices charged while music plays. For any device lacking Bluetooth, you can directly connect it to the speakers’ 3.5mm inputs.
Colorful soft-feel paint not only reflects your personality, but also makes the KMC 3 easier to grip. As a final touch, high-gloss metallic accents create an attractive contrast.

Paul W. Klipsch had a simple desire: he wanted hear a live orchestra in his living room. He didn’t literally want a whole, live orchestra in his living room, because classical musicians are notorious for eating your food without asking. But he wanted to re-create the experience of being at the symphony every time he played his music. He ventured into a tin shed in Hope, Arkansas in 1945 and soon emerged to patent the Klipschorn. The speaker’s horn-loaded technology subsequently ignited the high-fidelity sound movement, earning Klipsch a spot in the Engineering and Science Hall of Fame.
Now based out of Indianapolis, the Klipsch family applies its horn-loaded technology to products such as home-theater systems, sound bars, and headphones. Full-scale concert halls and theaters also use the company’s audio equipment, which you can hear firsthand at the 24,000-seat Klipsch Music Center outdoor amphitheater in Noblesville, Indiana. As for the Klipschorn, it’s still manufactured today and has remained nearly unchanged for more than 65 years.
Whether you need a speaker for your bedroom or for a backpacking kit, this guide will help you choose the right one.
