Creative audio made clever with Hitz mobile headsets, Sound Blaster EVO headphones and Airwave HD portable NFC speakers

Creative is back again in the tech stream and they launched a new series of audio tech products for the 2013 that was dubbed as the distributor of clever audio to our human ear, I know that listening to crisp, clear and boombastic audio is not enough and as time goes by and the evolution for audio tech continuously evolve, the notorious audio maker Creative also known by tech geeks of the 90’s as Sound Blaster, they are here to present to us that their devices are not just smart, intelligent but more clever than ever.

They mentioned to us that they are constantly strive to apply the implementation of clever technology to better user's lives by applying a 1) clever design 2) clever audio 3) clever usage for the ir Creative branded products, while for the Sound Blaster line they apply the 1) clever playback 2) clever recording 3) clever connectivity 4) clever communication

After knowing these new implementation, I am convinced that Creative really listens to their consumers and that’s a good way of giving back to us a good tech innovation. So the audio is made clever now a days, we really need it because other devices that can be paired with these audio products need to be more smarter and intelligent, that’s why Creative went beyond being clever enough.


With these new techs, Creative constantly push themselves to the limit to create more products that deliver only the highest standards in audio fidelity and performance. Their audio products should stand out not only in terms of audio quality but also for aesthetically inspiring - that's according to the Creative labs team here in the Philippines

So for this 2013 they released
1. Creative Airwave HD
2. Htiz mobile headset
3. Sound Blaster EVO headset

Let me introduce to you one by one the new audio tech from Creative
we can start here with these cute little wireless portable speakers, they are colorful and its fun to play with it – not a game item , but an audio item that you can use anywhere without worrying any cables dangling around. Here are my blogger friends – www.theproductsblog.com and www.wahpinas.com checking out the NFC and bluetooth connectivity of the Airwave HD speakers

Creative Airwave HD

Creative Airwave Portable Wireless Speaker is 30 inch speaker with build in batteries, you can charge it and bring it anywhere, no need for cables but you need a mobile device in order to use this. All you need to do is use your mobile device's NFC wireless connection or if you don't have NFC capability in your devices, you can just pair it via Bluetooth connection. Two devices can be connected to the Airwave HD via Bluetooth but you can toggle between the two devices and select one that can play your audio.

Airwave HD got a nice Bluetooth audio streaming tech the Apt x csr ACC won't worry you if ever there's a delay, it will continiously air the audio from your device and played directly to the Airwave HD. For full charge, it can run up to 7 hours, and if you have an incoming call, the built in microphone from the Airwave HD can help you answer a call. Its light, portable and stylish for music lovers.

Here’s my touch and try session, I pair my iPhone with the Airwave HD via Bluetooth connection

Next new release of Creative mobile headset comes in two kinds of model and also got a neon-ish color, the cable wire are flat and thin, and its designed for music and also for phone calls, there’s a microphone and also a volume control at the middle of the flat cable wire.

One of the comfy headset that I have tried that day and I like the earpads and head bands, its soft and it doesn’t squeeze my head.

You can use this with smarphones, listen to music, play games and then make calls with it by not removing your headsets.

It also comes with a microphone that works in crystal voice focus features, SBX surround sound for 3D audio experience, SBX Bass that fills in missing low frequency tones for deep high-impact bass that you can actually feel it as you hear it.

Evo headsets connects to your device via Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, there’s also an analog cable and slot for the headphone if you want a wired audio connectivity from your PC or device, useful plug if the battery runs out from the headset. It got its own battery that can last up to 8 hours.
