Creative Outlier Gold

The Creative Outlier Gold earbuds represent a significant leap forward from its predecessor. Creative may be onto a good thing here because the original Creative Outlier options were already excellent in their own right.

The Creative Outlier Gold isn’t just a cosmetic upgrade or update, either. Sure, the Outlier Gold earbuds sport a beautifully crafted gold exterior, but there are some pretty incredible sound quality upgrades as well. Updates “under the hood” that help to separate these wireless headphones from the rest of the pack.

Let’s dig a little deeper into everything that the Creative Outlier Gold earbuds have to offer.

Design

Beautifully crafted

From a design standpoint, you aren’t going to be able to tell the Outlier Gold earbuds apart from the original Outlier Air earbuds from Creative aside from the shiny gold finish that these new wireless headphones bring to the table.

But that doesn’t mean these headphones aren’t perfectly designed and engineered, not only from a very modern aesthetic standpoint (with minimalist features across the board) but also from the comfort and ergonomic design standpoint as well.

These earbuds remain super comfortable even over longer durations of time and just sort of fit the way you’d hoped all of the earbuds do. It’s amazing what the folks at Creative were able to pull off here.

Sound

The real differences between these earbuds and the ones that they are replacing/upgrading come in the overall sound quality experience you’ll be able to enjoy straight out of the box.

These new earbuds take advantage of the Super X-Fi sound amplification system pioneered by the experts at Creative. This technology allows you to squeeze the highest level of fidelity and authenticity out of music that you are listening to, with built-in amplification, built-in levelling, and a whole host of other powerful features. You can take advantage of these features with the companion application available free on both Android and iOS platforms.

Connectivity

Connectivity isn’t ever going to be a problem with the new Creative Outlier Gold earbuds, either.

Taking advantage of the latest Bluetooth 5.0 protocol, you’ll get 10 m of wireless range with rock-solid stability and dependability that previous versions of Bluetooth weren’t able to offer. On top of that, you’ll get plenty of extra “bandwidth” to support the highest quality audio files streaming from your mobile device to these Bluetooth headphones without any compression or latency issues.

Final Verdict

If you’re in the market for a premium set of wireless earbuds with a beautiful design and effortless connectivity – but do not want to spend a mountain of money along the way – the Creative Outlier Gold earbuds are worthy contenders for your hard-earned money.
