Kleer’s iPod Nano Adapter gives you wireless audio
Nobody has really done wireless headphones right. In a best case scenario, the adapter is built right into your device and all you have to do is pop tiny wireless buds into your ears. We’re still not there yet, at least not on most devices, but there are some decent accessories on the horizon that will give you wireless audio, one being Kleer’s new Wireless iPod Nano Adapter.
This adapter is designed specifically for the Nano, not the 5G. Using it will add some thickness to your device, but if you’re leaving it in one spot and not pocketing it, that should be fine. Getting CD quality audio out of wireless headphones is something you would generally laugh at, but Kleer’s product actually delivers on this promise. By using the 2.4 ghz frequency, not some junky FM transmitter that produces static, you’ll get awesome audio quality. While this unit is iPod-only, Kleer is licensing their technology out to other companies; RCA is planning on incorporating, in the device itself, the technology in their upcoming Jet Stream MP3 player.
This still isn’t that knock-out solution everyone’s been looking for (widescreen iPod + wireless headphones), but it’s not a bad start. No prices or release dates have been announced yet, but who knows, this technology may be coming to an MP3 player near you. Still, even if the Zune had wireless headphones, I don’t think I’d ever buy one. The iPod, on the other hand, is a done deal.
