Product Description

Product Description

The evolution of personal audio continues with the SA1. Boasting many if the same award winning features of the SA6, the SA1 offers Sleek's patented VQ tuning technology at an affordable price. A stylish Siam rosewood body encases the custom tuned 6mm dynamic driver for stunning clarity and bass impact you can feel. The VQ system allows the user to tune the earphones to match their individual sonic preference, and the patented detachable cables allow the SA1 to go from wired, to wireless and back again using Kleer CD quality wireless technology.

From the Manufacturer

The SA1 continues Sleek Audio's pursuit of improving the way people enjoy the music they love. It boasts an award winning VQ tuning system, wireless compatibility, and adds a new look to Sleek Audio's lineup with its beautiful Siam rosewood body.

The SA1 offers more than incredible sonic performance and style; it is also designed to fit comfortably for both men and women unlike any other in-ear earphone. Whether you’re exercising or relaxing on a flight you won’t have to worry about these earphones falling out.

Rosewood Housing for Rich Sound and Solid Bass

The SA1 delivers stunning clarity and a bass impact you can feel thanks to our custom tuned, first-of-its-kind 6mm. driver and patented VQ tuning system. This driver delivers incredible performance for its size thanks in part to the SA1’s Siam rosewood body. This wooden body provides more than a beautiful look; it offers the unique resonant features that create the naturally balanced sound signatures of the SA1.

VQ Tuning System for Fully Customized Audio

The reason a loudspeaker may sound great in your living room and horrible in your garage is acoustics. The ear is not any different, and the environment varies for every person. The VQ System lets you make the necessary corrections easily.

The SA1 utilizes a custom tuned 6mm driver capable of delivering the bass impact found in drivers nearly twice are large. The SA1 also allows you to customize the sound with a modified VQ tuning system.

The VQ system, similar to Sleek Audio's SA6 model, allows you to adjust the frequency response of the earphones to match your individual sonic preference using two treble tip options. The detachable cable then allows you to choose whether to go wired or wireless using Sleek Audio's award-winning, Kleer CD quality wireless system (sold separately). Lastly, the flange options and treble tip diameters makes allow these earphones to fit comfortably in virtually any ear.

The SA1 has interchangeable parts for a fully customized listening experience

THIRD UPDATE: 8/12/2010 (the final update)

So they sent me two replacement sets of earphones when my last pair broke. I have now had one earbud on each go out. From what I can tell, they had a quality control issues. See quoted text from an email conversation I had with them:

"Unfortunately we really cant give you an upgrade do to our booing and inventory logs. But i can assure you we have revised the quality control process for the SA1s and this should be your last replacement you need. We are working on a redesign that should be released in 2010 so if you run into issues again we will happily replace it with the new design."

My replacement unit has showed up and the build quality is noticeably tighter. I have run them through a burn in time of 100 hours and the sound quality is superb as well. Knowing that they are moving manufacturing back to the USA, and have tightened up quality control, I no longer have a problem recomending these to anyone. They are simply some of the best dynamic driver (micro driver) in ear monitors you can buy. The user replaceable cable alone sets them apart from others in this price range (IE the Klipsch S4's). And the sound quality is better than anything in its price category. Get a set know. I am moving my rating up to 4 stars based on the improvments that Sleek Audio have made, and the fact that their customer service is outstanding. If you ever do have a problem with these headphones, you won't have to worry about dealing with any shady business to get your issues taken care of. They are prompts and respond to email very quickly.

Personally, my only issue with these is fit, due to the fact that I have pretty small ear canals. I have switched to comply foam tips and that did the trick for me.

These earbuds are simply amazing. Great build, nice look, and amazing sound. Seriously the best sound I've had for under 100$. I recently had my Sennheiser buds stop working due to the wire failing. These were 20$ cheaper than those and sound much better. Plus you can change the wire out for about 15$ if it ever breaks, not to mention you can purchase the wireless kit and go from wired to wireless with ease. Go for it, you'll love them.

update: well i take it back. After 2-3 weeks of daily commuter use the left ear piece only works intermittently and i've lost 3 different earbuds because they come off so easily. Also one of the speaker screens fell off already. They LOOK nice but they fall apart really easily. Too bad cause i really liked the sound and look. I'll be returning these and looking for something that is more durable. It's like these were designed to be used at home only. I have to drop it from 5 stars to 2 due to a poor quality build and the fact that they stopped working correctly already.

The sound quality is incredible, but the build quality is horrible. Unacceptable for headphones at this price. I've gone through 4 cords in two years, and not because I don't respect the equipment. My most recent cord was used exclusively at my desk, and was kept gently rolled up in its case when not in use. I've lost three cords due to fraying by the jack (and my current cord is starting to fray there), but my most recent cord just gave out around the left earbud plug. Plus, the adjustable earbud tips and earbuds themselves have excess glue. It's too convenient that these headphones come with a replaceable cord, and the cords just happen to have the worst endurance of any headphones I've ever used. I had a lousy pair of $10 Skull Candy earbuds before these, and that cord is still solid as can be.

I'm incredibly disappointed. I want to love these headphones, but I can't recommend them for the simple fact that you'll be buying replacement parts for years to come. Spend your money elsewhere.

JANUARY 2012 UPDATE

The metal front half of the earbuds - not the top, the entire front half - has detached from the wooden back half. I've resorted to super gluing the two back together for the time being, while I look for a replacement pair of earbuds. Definitely don't buy these.

Got the product was great for the first 6 months or so the the issues started to come up. first the seal/glue used for the jack came loose as I removed it from my MP3 player. Yes I was holding and pulling from the plastic housing not the cord. thought good thing I also got the wireless adapter. Though now at about 9 months that isn't even saving this purchase. One of the headphones no longer works does't matter which side it gets put on while the other works on either side. So the only thing still working 9 months later is the wireless unit though I am not sure if that is really a positive or not.

JA

I guess it is time to start working with their warranty department to resolve my purchase.

I am a consumer who is very conscientious of where the products I buy come from and main reason I chose to purchase headphones from this company vs other brands was because I had read an article in Fortune Magazine about the founder's decision to move production back to the US in 2011 after experiencing problems with overseas manufacturing. However, when I received the package, I was regrettably disappointed. It seems that Amazon is still selling the older models of this product as a "Made in China" sticker was attached at the bottom of the package. The headphones are flimsy, weak, and the earbuds are nothing like what is depicted in the photographs - they are uncomfortable and do not stay in. Sleek's headphones might be worth the $40 when purchased directly from their website, but unfortunately the ones that are sold on Amazon are not.
