Creative has been leading a charge when it comes to mobile audio hardware, backup by their decades of experience in the PC audio market. Over the last few years, they’ve continued to deliver innovative technologies, such as their SXFI audio processing, as well as multiple award-winning mobile products that support it. I myself have been a long time user of their Outlier Gold headphones for my daily walks and what little travelling I’ve done this year. However, as much as I love them, they’re not perfect.

It’s for that reason I was able to put up with the difficult to use buttons, the single microphone, and so on. Of course, this new model has new touch controls, longer battery life, better water resistance, improve connectivity and the new Qualcomm cVc 8.0 multi-microphone technology too, making them a nice improvement overall.
