I'm no audio expert but this is what they claim
" Sleek Audio chose to work with Kleer as it's the first wireless platform that truly allows music lovers to enjoy lossless, CD quality sound with wireless earphones. Unlike Bluetooth, which strongly compresses music, Kleer uses a 2.4GHrz, 16-bit signal. The difference in sound quality between being wired and wireless is virtually zero. Lossless means that there is virtually no detail "lost" in the transition of the signal to wireless. "
then more from their site:
Digital Wireless Transmission Capacity
The goal of the digital wireless transmission technology should be completely lossless audio transmission. Uncompressed, 16-bit, 44.1KHz-sampled stereo audio (full CD quality) requires 1.4112Mb/s. Lossless audio compression can reduce this to approximately 1Mb/s on average, but the short term compression ratio depends on characteristics of the music such that the radio still needs to support the full 1.4Mb/s to achieve lossless full CD quality audio streaming. Anything less, and lossy compression is required and audio quality is reduced. Some excess capacity is required for the retransmission of packets corrupted by interference. In general, a radio capacity of approximately 2Mb/s provides an optimum trade-off between audio quality, interference robustness and power consumption.
Digital Audio Compression for Wireless Transmission
The primary purpose of digital audio compression is to reduce the data rate of the audio stream to fit within the capacity supported by the digital wireless transmission technology. There are two main categories of digital audio compression; lossy compression and lossless compression.
Lossless compression only eliminates redundancy from the audio stream such that no information is lost. The original audio stream can be exactly reproduced by decompression, such that there is no reduction of audio quality, and the simple encoding/decoding circuitry consumes negligible power.
Lossy compression includes well-known formats such as MP3, WMA, OGG, AAC, and others. Lossy compression targets a specific compression ratio (e.g. 4:1, 10:1, etc.) or data rate (e.g. 128Kb/s, 192Kb/s, etc.) and eliminates as much information as is necessary to achieve that amount of compression. Perceptual encoding is used to minimize the audibility of the information loss. Relatively high compression ratios can be achieved at the expense of audio quality and at the cost of complexity and power consumption of the circuitry performing the encoding and decoding.
but I'm sure the reviews will speak for themselves.
From that excerpt, it sounds like they're talking about the actual audio file.
Of course the bitrate won't decrease. There's no headphone out there that decreases an audio file's bitrate. That doesn't mean that there won't be interference from the dozens of other things that use the same frequencies as the headphones would..
Seems like more marketing BS (and yes, I do have a relatively good grasp on audio compression) where they try to get consumers to bite on things they don't understand..
Probably the same ploy as Monster's "speed rated" or "high speed HDMI cables". with platinum shielding to prevent distortion or degradation of image/audio/whatever quality.
I've heard enough of crappy quality headphones being called "studio monitoring" and "high definition" headphones. Supposedly the Beats could accurately reproduce the intricacies produced in the studio... Now we know that they don't even come close.
I'm not going to hold onto any hope that these other headphones aren't cut from the same cloth of garbage.
