Sleek Audio shows SA7 flagship earbuds
Sleek Audio on its Facebook page has confirmed a new set of high-end in-ear headphones in the SA7. The new flagship replaces the SA6 and retains its user-adjustable VQ system for adjusting treble and bass. The body is new, however, and machined from a single block of aluminum with a carbon fiber shell attached with titanium screws. Inside the body are dual balanced armature transducers surrounded by silicone that are said to be capable of absorbing up to 14,000 Gs of force, eliminating the fragility sometimes associated with earbuds.
TDK intros Kleer wireless headphones
TDK Japan on Monday released its TH-WR700 headphones that use Kleer's wireless technology. A sender unit connects to an iPhone, iPod or other device with a 3.5mm headphone jack and transmits 16-bit/44.1KHz audio using the 2.4GHz frequency to a built-in receiver in the folding headphones. Both phone calls and music will pass through from any compatible products.
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.
DigiFi out two earbuds
Korea-based DigiFi and technology partner Kleer on Tuesday announced the release of two new wireless earbud sets, the Digital Opera S2 and the Digital Opera S5.

Sleek and Kleer adapter
Sleek Audio and Kleer have collaborated on bringing a wireless music streaming adapter for use with Sleek Audio’s SA6 in-ear headphones. The Sleek Wireless adapter uses Kleer’s 2.4GHz radio link, which is said to achieve 10 times more battery life than a comparable Bluetooth headset, to deliver CD-quality sound. The adapter replaces the cable of the headphones by plugging into the SA6 earphones‘ 3.5mm stereo jack, and features a built-in battery rated for 10 hours of listening time, outlasting many of the source players’ battery ratings.
