Move on over, Bluetooth, you’ve got yourself a major competitor on your hands. Kleer Wireless Audio is designed to eschew cables while providing top notch audio. Moreover, it is said to provide ten times the battery life of Bluetooth. Instead of being originally designed for wireless data transfers, Kleer’s architecture “was designed from the ground up to communicate lossless CD-quality digital stereo audio over a robust 2.4GHz radio link.”
Not only can you use Kleer’s solution with your favorite set of headphones as you jam away on your iPod, it will also work quite well with home theater setups and top-end car audio equipment. Kleer is working with OEMs to implement the technology in their devices.
The KLR3012 module is the primary component to this picture, and it is available for sampling today. Mass production is set to commence in Q1 2007.
