If you have been wondering how Creative Technology has not yet have its own true wireless earbuds, well, wonder no more because, it is here. Creative Outlier Air is the Singapore-based tech company’s first true wireless in-ear headphones that touts “perfect blend of long battery life and impeccable audio performance,” and more importantly, though, it is light on the wallet.
The Creative Outlier Air offers 10 hours of use on a single charge and the on-the-go use is further extended by the charging case that two charging cycles, bringing to the table a total of 30 hours. Though it is unclear how long does it take a drained pair to charge too full.
As far as such “true wireless earbuds” is concerned, my view is, don’t look at how much longer run time the case can offer you; just look at what a fully-charged pair can last you because, there’s bound to have down time in between. The only difference is, you don’t need to be stuck to an outlet.
Under the hood, it gets 5.6 mm graphene driver diaphragm that promised detailed highs and rich bass without distortions and vibrations and on the connectivity aspect, there’s Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy bolstered by Qualcomm Qualcomm QCC302x series chip for “smoother and uninterrupted audio streaming,” as well as support for Qualcomm aptX audio and Qualcomm TrueWireless Stereo Plus. AAC codec is, of course, supported here too.
Creative Outlier Air is IPX5 rated that affords it to resist sustained, low-pressure water jet spray. Meaning, it should be good for working out or light rain condition, unless your sweat permeates out of your skin at high-pressure (which is not possible). Finally, like any good true wireless earbuds, it is totally compatible with Apple Siri and Google Assistant.
You can pick up the Creative Outlier Air now on Creative web shop for $79.99.
