Lets face it, wires are often inconvenient. They look bad, can be a pain and, at times, are more trouble then they are worth. Even still, at times it is nice to be able to connect your notebook or handheld device to external speakers with more punch and better sound.
That’s where Bluetooth comes in. As more and more mainstream devices adopt bluetooth technology the playing field for device accessories is changing. And one of the best uses of Bluetooth? Wireless speakers!
Wireless speakers are a great option with laptops and other bluetooth-enabled devices. They let you cut the cord without cutting the sound. Creative has a new offering in this area and they look good!
Their new Inspire S2 Wireless Speaker System is currently out in the UK and, hopefully, will be on the way to this side of the pond. If they do… I want!
High performance is a key attribute of the Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system. The satellite speakers feature dynamic 2-inch drivers that emit well-balanced audio, and the new Creative DIRECT-THROW subwoofer brings music and entertainment to vivid levels by delivering clean and heart-thumping mid-bass straight to the user. The highly-efficient front driver/rear-firing port tube design utilizes acoustic boundary coupling to greatly increase the bass output, ensuring that most of the usable bass energy from the subwoofer reaches the listener. A convenient control knob on the subwoofer allows the bass level to be easily adjusted to suit personal preferences or room conditions.
The Creative Inspire S2 Wireless speaker system comes with a digital volume control conveniently located on the right satellite speaker, and an AUX-In input for connecting to notebooks, PCs, or portable media devices. A Headphone-Out connection caters to private listening. A dual-colored LED on the right satellite speaker provides easy indication of speaker status.
