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

They look good, fit in my ears great, and the sound quality is superb.

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.
I usually need the smallest ear tips, but with these the small and medium dual flange tips keep coming off inside my ear.

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.

Verified Purchase
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.

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.

This is my third set of earbuds I've tried in the $50+ range but under $100, the other being a pair of Yamahas and a pair of Sony. These got some great reviews from other sites, so I decided to give them a try. Visually, they're very attractive. Can you think of anyone else that uses a fine wood in the construction of an earbud? The detachable wires is also a nice touch, albeit a modular concept designed to make them compatible with their "Kleer" wireless system. According to SLEEK's website, replacement wires in different colors are offered, but presently black looks to be the only option available. Plan on doing a little tinkering if you purchase these as they come with six pairs of soft tips and two pairs of interchangeable treble tips. If changing between tips, I suggest additionally tightening them down after installing a soft tip. This way you have some extra grip to do so. The treble tips are small and easy to lose, so be wary of where you decide to change them. The only real noticeable difference at first glance is the bass tips are black and if you look inside them there is some sort of ring (fiber?) installed under the screen that seems to reduce the inside diameter of the tip. This might their way of "softening" the output. I was taken aback at the sound quality these offer for this price range. They sound great and are very comfortable, however I think they are slightly inefficient, as I've had to crank up the volume considerably, compared to some others I've tried. They do come through brilliantly with little distortion when I max out on my volume. I've also tried them on a friend's iPod, which apparently has a stronger output, and they sound incredible. The wireless add-on "Kleer" system is a nice option, especially for those of us that own a Zune and don't have the Bluetooth feature, but the price tag needs to come down.
