Kleer Cuts Loose

Of all the products and technologies I’ve seen so far at this year’s CES, the most impressive is, without a doubt, from Kleer. Its technology utilizes a 2.4GHz radio for full lossless audio.

I had a chance to test it out with an iPod adapter and I’m thoroughly pleased with the results. I noticed no distinction in audio fidelity between wired headphones and the Kleer reference set.

Kleer plans to license the technology for use in other products. We could see it available in headphones from people like Sennheiser in the near future. RCA has already announced that Kleer will be integrated into its new Jet Stream MP3 player due out later this spring.

I’ll be watching this one intently and I’ll let you all know where it’s headed.
