Holy Molly... first, I was surprised by the price, and then more surprised by the number of people that went ahead and purchased them. What do you guys do for living??!@#?

geez,20 divers per side. And the price there...don't have the money, and don't have that big ears for these.

Ho-lee crap. And here I was thinking Unique Melody was pushing it with their eight driver per ear customs...

 

EDIT: HAHAHA! You totally got me. It wasn't until I went to the Sleek Audio site and looked at the product page did I realize how badly I'd been duped! Nice job.etysmile.gif

Good point, the numerous speakers do over shadow the fact that you can go from wired, to wireless and back again using Kleer lossless technology with these.We had to upgrade the amp to handle the 180 ohm impedance on the receiver.

And here I am thinking if only the price was closer to 5K!!!  

 

BTW - I was looking forward to next years 25 driver version!

 

LOL!!!

All you non-believers, shame on you. The CT20 is definitely real, and I had the chance to hear it - it's awesome. Save your sarcasm for another time.

 

The highs are slightly cleaner than the Senn HD850s, and soundstage imaging is simply without equal, although the size of the soundstage is still surpassed by the AKG K1001s. Being balanced armatures, they don't have the same bass slam of the Audez'e LCD-3s or the Denon D9000s, but they're definitely very precise, and better in bass detail. The mids are simply amazing, airy sounding but retaining the richness of the Sony R11s. Overall I would say they're about on par with the Sony Qualia 010 mk2. Best of all, they don't have the amplification requirements of the AKG K341s or the Beyerdynamic T2s. If you have the money, skip the Ultrasone Ed. 11s and get these. Save the money on ear-expanding surgery. You'll need it.

 

I tested the headphones with the Duke Nukem Forever soundtrack. I drove them with a brand-new Singlepower Extreme Platinum (built about two weeks ago) and my Palm Foleo.

@Andrew, I liked Sleek on FB just on the strength of this excellent thread.

Sleek sent me a set too... they're ridiculous. After about 15 minutes I noticed blood dripping out of my ears. It was so worth it though.

This is undoubtedly an April fool spoof. 

 

If you've any doubts watch the Sleek Audio video clip posted on YouTube. The transparent IEM displayed must be at least half an inch thick. Who would wear such gargantuan lumps protruding from their ears?

 

Cheers.
