How small is the amount of white noise? Barely-noticeable small?

You'll hear it in very quiet/silent passages. Not really noticeable any other times.

I should also note two things listening a bit more. It adds some bass, so for those who thought the Sleeks needed a bass++ port, you got it. Secondly, I had to move the volume on the Zune up a notch to achieve the same volume as the wired Sleeks.

Cool. Glad to hear you're not having the same problem as Edwood.

if you were to use the wireless with a digital piano, would you think that the noise would be an issue?

can you give exemple of tracks and times where you heard the noise.
can you try on:
Gary Jules Mad world
Archie Shepp's Deep River (Goin' Home) or How Long Blues 5 Trouble in Mind)
Star Wars Phantom Menace tack 7 (The Arrival At Tatooine )
is Arnold McCuller 's Free Bird still enjoyable ?

Kudos to the Sleek team once again.

Both very encouraging reports! Heres hoping Edwood was unforntunate enough to recieve a faulty unit. Look forward to more impressions on the W1

humm i must have misread his post, anyways its not noticeable once you turn it up a bit more.

when i had the chance to take a listen i was at work and wanted to listen at low levels just in case if my boss needed me i can hear him...I dont think its that much of a problem now.

I wore it on the bus today and while i was walking to work, some times the track would skip like it was losing signal but it came back after i held my zune up for a little .I thought it was the battery but it only happened when it was in my pocket and walking.

I cant really say about the sound quality because i find it difficult to find the correct fit in my ear.I find it hard to enjoy music when i put these on.i'm gonna get those comply foams which i hope helps.

Overall not the experience i expected.Hopefully it will get better once i get my foamys

No offence to the engineers at Sleeks, but did you guys have to make the on/off switch so inaccessible? It's really hard to switch it on/off everytime I want to use it because I don't have long nails, and I have to use my PDA stylus to switch it on/off.

its a good thing they didnt, just hold down the button for a while and it will shut off. That is according to Edwoods post earlier in this thread. Post #157 I believe.

I would describe using that switch as a "hard" shut down. But you really don't need to use that switch unless you think the wireless is going to be shut down a long time (several days or so). A "soft" shut down, with the easy-to-use button on the surface of the accessory, provides weeks of battery life.

Well I have mine, I do agree with the onn/off switch, had to use a nail file to get it switched.

As for the white noise, yes when the iPod is paused or between songs, otherwise cant really notice it

Sounds aweeeeesome!

Currently, I'm not very happy with the lack of response from Sleek. I emailed them a question regarding shipping a few days ago, and have not received a response yet. This, and along with all the sound quality issues (skipping, white noise, etc.), is making me consider delaying my order of the Wireless transmitter.

Based on my experience, it's better to give them a telephone call. My guess is that they are flooded with email owing to introduction of the new wireless device.
