Creative announces Outlier headphones
Creative Technology Ltd has announced new headphones called Outlier that are designed for use outdoors. The new Bluetooth MP3 headphones are packed with features and can be used along with a smartphone or without one. The device is also extremely lightweight and at just 93 grams (3.28 oz) you won’t feel you are using it.
The Outlier headphone is extremely durable – it comes with a very flexible and durable headband construction with soft protein leatherette ear cushions. The device comes in two colors – Pristine White or Bold Black but allows users to attach a pair of colored acoustic rings around each of the ear cups to personalize them. Users can even 3D-print their own acoustic rings and Creative is here to help – the company keeps 3D print designs for the Outlier on its web site. There are several ways in which you can use the Outlier – you can use a NFC-enabled Bluetooth 4.1 device, via the headphones’ built-in MP3 player, through USB Audio and through an integrated 3.5 mm AUX-IN port. In addition the new Creative headphones support Creative’s Android Buddy application that reads out notifications or texts, such as SMS, WhatsApp, WeChat, LINE, Viber, Skype, Facebook Messenger, and more. The built-in Pacer mode announces the total elapsed time or lap time to track any activity, such as timed circuit trainings, treadmill runs, or when simply walking in the park and finally there’s a built-in invisible microphone with ClearSpeech Engine that actively suppresses external noises and digitally enhances speech clarity so that your conversations are loud and clear.
The new Creative Outlier headphones are available now for USD 99.99.
