Business Insider India

Creative has added some nifty features to the Outlier. The soft-feel leatherette ear pads are ideal for prolonged use. I wore it for hours in the Delhi metro, and my ears never hurt. As the cups are almost the same size as your ears, you can comfortably wear your glasses, and the padding won't push your specs off your face. Audio is OK. I expected average sound at best, thanks to the compact size. However, clarity and sound balance would surprise you. The 32-mm Neodymium drivers offer quality that'll satisfy most light users.

Creative Outlier



Sitting on your ear rather than in them means that your ear canals don't get fatigued, yet because they sit on your ears rather than surround them you also don't have the annoying 'pressing against your head' experience you can get with certain headsets. They're an absolute joy to wear... the actual quality of the sound is very good with all the frequencies well represented and none of them dominating the others. Well rounded is our overarching impression.

Customer Reviews

K. Taylor

Product is very light and reasonably comfortable although the ear cushions are a little too firm. Sound is good and the features are perfect for what I purchased it for. The microSD card works really well and you do not need a secondary device to play music. I do like devices that have multiple uses and flexibility.

R. Ball

This product is outstanding, I LOVE it! Easy to use, light and comfortable to wear and well designed. The sound quality is outstanding, Having previously enjoyed the luxury of ZEN mp3 player, the only reason for less than 5 stars is that I would prefer a product with a screen - and I realize that this is neither feasible or practicable. I have the highest regard for CREATIVE products.

P. Chrapan

good price good quality best battery in market and microSD audio option
