Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Creative, a brand known for affordable yet high-quality products, released the Outlier Gold true wireless headphones for $89.94 with Super X-Fi technology
  • With an IPX5 waterproof certification, no need to worry about how sweaty you get during a workout
  • Bluetooth 5.0 along with aptX and AAC high-quality Bluetooth codec support provide seamless connectivity and better audio quality
  • On-board microphone and controls to answer calls, music playback, adjust the volume levels and connect with Google Assistant, Siri or Cortana
  • Exceptional battery life of up to 14 hours on a single charge, and the charging case provides 25 hours of extra power
  • Auto Stop automatically shuts down the Creative Outlier Gold true wireless earbuds after 10 minutes of inactivity to save battery life
  • Warm and pleasant sound with plenty of punch to the bass and well-balanced mid-range that delivers spacious soundstage for an immersive listening experience
  • Included two different sizes of silicone ear tips that help you to find the right fit
  • Each bud receives its own Bluetooth data, so can be used in mono mode alone for music or calls
  • Dedicated Super X-FI App to select EQ presets, enable holographic sound, Super X-FI effect on/off, assign master earbud and select voice assistant for a better listening experience

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • On-board controls require a lot of pressure to operate and each time you press them, the buds seem to penetrate deeper into your ear
  • The case is not as easy to open with one hand as the case of AirPods or Galaxy Buds
  • Super X-Fi technology only works with your local library of music, not music streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music
  • The bass and treble are good, as long as you get a good fit, otherwise Creative Outlier Gold Wireless Headphones sound thinner than they should
  • The call quality is just average, voices sound unnatural, while other business-ready headphones offer much better quality
  • All plastic build doesn’t look premium or feel durable as some other better-built true wireless headphones
  • Sometimes overwhelming bass suppresses the mid-frequencies, which makes the overall sound muddled and messy
  • Due to their large size, Creative Outlier Gold may not provide the most comfortable fit for users with small ears

Highlights

  • Super X-Fi processing technology to enjoy the three-dimensional sound via the SXFI App
  • Stunning 14-hour playtime per charge, additional 25 hours with carrying case
  • Bluetooth 5.0 along with aptX and AAC ensure uncompromised and uninterrupted wireless audio quality
  • 5.6mm graphene driver diaphragm produces detailed highs, well-balanced mids, and immersive bass
  • IPX5 sweat-proof coating for protection against sweat, light rain and accidental splashes
  • Receive and answer calls even with just one earbud as both earbuds work independently
  • Convenient access to Siri or Google Assistant from a supported device
  • 2 pairs of small and medium ear tips included for a perfect and secure fit
