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.

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.

I had put off purchasing a real pair of headphones for far too long, and after much deliberation I decided on the SA1s. Don't let the fancy lighting fool you; these things are downright gorgeous. The phones themselves appear to be quite robust, but it's the components you should watch out for.

As the monitors themselves are detachable from the cable, it is the cable, and not the monitors, that designates right and left channels. Do not try to figure out which end is which in the dark, as the labels are very hard to see. I noticed, after some listening time, that the soundstage appeared to be shifted about 15 degrees to the right. This may be caused by the fact that the connection between the cable and the monitors is not perfectly solid and may need more than the occasional push to make things even. Since I don't notice it in all songs, it may be that this is simply an effect of the recording that I am only now noticing due to the high quality of the headphones.

When I first put them in, the single-flange large offering the best fit for me, I immediately noticed a difference that I didn't like. I was expecting the telltale neutral inflection of a true monitor, but this was much more than that. However, after removing the default silver drivers and replacing them with the black ones, the result was much better. You may wish to try both to see for yourself. Even with the blacks, however, you will probably want to apply an equalizer preset to your music if you wish to avoid the raw neutralness of the SA1s. The sound quality itself I found initially to be average at best, but I believe it is improving with burn-in.

The carrying case is too bulky for a pocket, but is just the right size for a pouch in a backpack.
