Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the institution that gives voice to the stories, people, artifacts and events that shaped the musical genre, and leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer Klipsch have announced a strategic, three-year partnership giving Klipsch as the first ever presenting sponsor of Induction Ceremony events and the Rock Hall’s Main Stage. As well as the Induction Ceremony sponsor, Klipsch products will be used to fulfill audio needs in the museum, including professional audio products, soundbars, headphones and more. “This is an ideal partnership for our Classic American Speaker company,” notes Matt Sommers, Klipsch VP of Marketing. “Klipsch was founded the better part of a century ago (sic) to bring the live musical experience into people’s living room. Our founder, Paul W. Klipsch, made it his life’s goal to create speakers that rock. His ‘no bull—’ attitude, with the science to back it up, changed the way we listen to music today. Many classic albums have been mixed, mastered and enjoyed on Klipsch. Every product we make carries that legendary legacy. This partnership is about heritage, respect, independence, expression and ‘kicking a–’…characteristics of both Klipsch and Rock & Roll. We couldn’t be prouder.” Unquote.

Every day, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame celebrates the pinnacle of achievement and tells the stories of the music that shaped our lives. That commitment to a high standard of musical excellence is at the heart of both our brands and gives us an incredible foundation on which to build.” Paul W. Klipsch founded the company in Hope in 1946, and manufacturing and shipping facilities continue at the Oakhaven Industrial area near Hope.
