The Good The Sleek Audio SA6 in-ear headphones offer rich detail in the low frequency range and a unique modular design that lets users tune the character of the sound quality to suit their tastes.

The Bad The modular design of the Sleek Audio SA6 means there are a lot of little parts to lose. For the price, we were hoping for better high-frequency clarity.

The Bottom Line The Sleek Audio SA6 earphones deliver above-average sound quality and an unprecedented modular design, but there are better earphones available in this price range.

Headphone newcomer Sleek Audio has introduced a new twist on high-end earphones. Their debut product, the SA6 in-ear headphones ($249) are the first set of earphones we've seen that allow you to customize treble and bass responsiveness by swapping interchangeable parts.

The Sleek Audio SA6 earphones are lightweight and attractive, with a black-and-chrome aesthetic. Each set of SA6 earphones comes with a selection of three sizes of flanged silicone ear fittings and a detachable 4-foot cable that terminates in a gold-plated 3.5mm jack. Also included is a plastic clamshell case for storing the SA6 earphones, which we found to be more attractive than functional.
