The Sleek and The Stealth

Two years after their first ground breaking, tunable IEM, Sleek Audio finally introduced a new model, the SA-1, to the market. Like the previous SA-6, the new IEM also feature Sleek Audio own VQ sound tuning system, but in a lesser form (and a cheaper price, if that matters). Instead of a treble + bass double ports combination, SA-1 only has a tunable nozzle port - it does has dynamic transducer, rose wood body and exchangeable, replaceable cable. More importantly, SA-1 looks much more solid than its elder sibling (durability wise). Being only the 2nd universal models Sleek Audio has, I guess the company does learn from the pass mistake and putting a lot more thought in the new IEM. As a SA-6 owner, I do hope SA-1 will be just as, if not more successful. For more detail and pre-order (around US$80), check out Sleek Audio's website.

Many of you probably never heard of a Chinese headphone manufacturer called 'Sunrise', and I won't be surprised. They are a company specialize in OEM business. Although they did have a few earbuds under their own brand for a few years now, they have never became 'big' - if you know what I mean. Instead, they seems to have vanished from the mainstream market and went back to their OEM business. Last week, Sunrise announced a new entry to their SR series, the SRX, and this time it is an IEM instead of an earbud. It seems they are finally ready to reboot and re-boost their own brand. I was informed that Sunrise's own website will be available in near future and more detail about the SRX will surface. I might also have a chance to listen to the new SRX - so stay tuned.

Beside getting free review samples, I don't work for or get paid by anyone to write anything on this website, or anywhere else in that matter. Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
