Raising the Bar: Sleek Audio CT20

Just when we all thought JH3A, ES5 or the UE18 Pro are on the cutting edge of IEM technology, here comes Sleek Audio CT20 (= 20 drivers per side) crashing the party! Two things in my mind: First, how do they come up with the crossover is beyond me. Second, who has big enough ears for it? - Yep, it actually costs $8000 a pair (probably enough to get JH3A, ES5 and UE18 Pro all together) and has a physical requirement for ears dimensions to accommodate the huge earpiece. For those who are living on planet earth, don't worry - there are a CT18 and a CT16 in development.

Here is Jude, the's boss' CT20 impression.

Apparently, overkill is underrated... or maybe it has something to do with the first day of April? ;)

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.
