Opera Headphones use Kleer Wireless Technology
by Mark R
Korean company DigiFi has developed a product known as the Opera, which has nothing to do with a certain genre of musical theater. However, if you want to use it to listen to opera, it will work for that.
This might not be obvious from the photo, but the Opera is a pair of headphones that was designed to wrap around the back of your head with an ear bud on each side. Even though the ear buds are attached, there is no cord connecting this headset to the iPod. Instead of a cord, it uses Kleer technology.
For those of you who are not familiar with Kleer, it is a wireless technology that claims to have better specifications than Bluetooth. In the case of the Opera, all you need to do is plug in the Kleer wireless transmitter to the MP3 Player’s headphone jack, and the headphones will be synced wirelessly to your player.
I’ve got to admit that DigiFi has filled an MP3 market niche with the Opera. I personally hate how my MP3 player’s cord gets caught all the time, and would prefer it to be wireless. However, I’m not sure if I’m willing to pay $98 for this convenient feature.
