Since then Creative has continued to lead the charge in innovative sound products including personal sound devices. Just in time for the holiday season, Creative has two new products that are worth paying attention to.
The latest offerings from Creative are the Metallix Portable Mini Speaker and the Outlier ONE Wireless In-Ear Headphones, both of which offer compelling features at rock-bottom prices.
Let’s take a closer look at what each product brings to the table.
Creative Metallix Portable Mini Speaker
The Creative Metallix is a portable mini speaker has a full range driver with a hidden passive radiator, which delivers a big sound experience in a small package. But what else makes it stand out? For one thing, there are four different ways to use it.
You can connect your device via Bluetooth, use a wired connection, playback music on an MicroSD card, or even use the built in FM radio. All of these functions are controlled using the on-board playback controls built into the speaker. Not only that, but you can connect it to your phone’s virtual assistant by double pressing the play button.
For those interested, you can even link two Metallix speakers together for stereo sound! At just 2.6 x 2.6 x 3.0 inches, these speakers boast 24 hours of playback capability making them the ultimate in portable entertainment.
The biggest surprise the Metallix packs is its price. Despite having great features, the Metallix is available for just $29.99 — $10 off the suggested retail price.
