What We Say: Have you ever been to a concert and stood next to the speakers and left with that awesome ringing in your ears? Well these new Kicker HP1973 Headphones are pretty much that experience without the leftover ringing noise. A private concert for your ears.

What They Say:

Retro-Look KICKER® HP1973 Headphones Lightweight and Sound Great

STILLWATER, USA – KICKER® HP1973 Over-the-Ear Stereo Headphones are a throwback with a retro look and legendary KICKER sound, ideal for music lovers and musicians alike. Although the look might be vintage, the lightweight comfort is definitely 21st century.

The HP1973 reflects the musical history of KICKER while still providing high-performance sound that KICKER is known for. The dynamic, full-range audio hits all the highs and lows in every song, making every playlist sound live. The headphones take insight straight from 1973, the year that inspiration for KICKER sound busted out of a single-car garage. Since then, the 36-year journey has taken Livin’ Loud® from the road to personal audio.

HP1973 Headphones raise the bar with a high comfort level and a distinctive look. These aren’t dad’s heavyweight headphones; the HP1973 won’t lie heavy on the head or ears. Weighing in at just more than five ounces, the super-lightweight set with adjustable headband provides an ultra-comfortable fit. The black-gloss earphone cups provide incredible comfort with leather-lined cushiony padding surrounding the ear. Dual-chrome wire feeds into a leather-padded headband with the KICKER name etched into the top.

A 65-inch, braided cloth-covered cable is tangle-free and provides more freedom for movement while you listen. The corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated 1/8-inch plug connects into iPhones, iPods®, Zune devices, other MP3 players, laptops and other media options. HP1973 Headphones also interact with all KICKER Docking Systems, including those for iPhone, iPod or Zune devices.

KICKER performance audio systems, a division of Stillwater Designs and Audio, Inc.®, are available for the mobile and home audio aftermarket at authorized dealers worldwide, and also through selected Original Equipment Manufacturers. Consumers needing more information on KICKER or Livin’ Loud® may call the Consumer Information Line at 1-800-256-5425 or visit the brand Web site at www.kicker.com.
