Sleek Audio has just released its SA7 earbuds, which use all kinds of military grade materials, specs, and jargon to deliver your rather lo-fi iPod tunes to your auditory canal: carbon fiber composite weave, milled aluminum core, titanium plate connector and screws, variable equalization system, and dual ultra-wide band balanced sonic cannons. That's right, sonic cannons.
The two drivers inside are cushioned by silicone, and the structure can withstand 14,000 times the force of gravity. Needless to say, 14,000 Gs is well beyond the point at which you would be unrecognizably dead. But technology doesn't limit itself to puny human boundaries. The pertinent specs: adjustable bass and treble ports, wireless functionality, and the ability to transmit another octave to golden-eared listeners. If your ears are worthy, you'll find them for $400 at Sleek Audio.
