Sleek outs wireless-ready SA1 earphones

updated 04:35 pm EST, Mon November 16, 2009

Sleek SA1 earphones have rosewood body

Sleek Audio on Monday launched its wooden SA1 in-ear headphones which can be tuned and worn either as wired headphones or wirelessly. The SA1 set has 6mm drivers housed in a Siam rosewood body. Thanks to Sleek's optional Kleer wireless system, the wires can be detached and users can listen to music wirelessly. Frayed, pinched or otherwise damaged wires can be replaced anytime.

Thanks to the Variable Equalization (VQ) system, users can adjust the frequency response using the treble tuning options. There are multiple ear tips for a perfect fit, and the SA1 is said to be designed to fit comfortably in the ears of both men and women.

The SA1 headphones can be purchased now, and are priced at $80.

    Wireless with Wires

    It's worth noting (and laughing at) the fact that the "wireless" module for this consists of a two-foot long wire with a transmitter attached.

    Answer to Wireless with Wires

    I do not think you are being fair wuth your comment about wires
    Yes you still have wires that connect the earbuds but those wires are not a constraint like traditionnal wire because they do not have to be connected to the player
    For example, if you go to the gym, you can safely put your player in a closed pocket and exercise full steam on the treadmill; or you can do any other activity with getting tangled up in your wires
    The receiver is on the back of your neck and you do not have to worry about it.
    Frankly I have tested earbuds from Digifi (OPERA S2) which are based on the same technology and they are very nice!
