I paired these with a Samsung Galaxy S3 (which supports apt-X) and the sound was really very good, comparable the Sennheiser wired earbud style headphones I have been using over the past couple of years. The sound is especially impressive when you tweak the output via the music player EQ on the source device to tailor to particular genres/tastes.
The reason I could only give 3 stars is that these were very uncomfortable to wear for long periods, I had to re-adjust or take a break after just 15-20 minutes of listening. The issue is twofold, firstly the headband has no padding of any kind and I was conscious of this, secondly, they fit very tight to the ears with no adjustment available - I have a medium sized head, but these were just too tight and uncomfortable for any prolonged listening.
I really like the sound and styling of the Creative apt-X range so I decided to return these and buy the WP-350 model (which were half the RRP at the time of writing this review - £46. I am very glad I did. The sound quality is comparable - the 450's maybe had a little more 'punch' but it is marginal - and these are so much more comfortable in comparison and £20 cheaper !!
The blue tooth was easy to set up and I did not need to read the instructions to work it out.
The sound is a bit disappointing. It sounds a bit dead/flat, not bright. I tried the various graphic equaliser type controls for different styles of music listening experience and though some increased the amount of treble, (the default is bass heavy), this did not help much and the sound still lacked excitement.
I compared the volume of it to the WP-350 by switching between them and the result was interesting - it is about 2 notches of volume from my mobile phone louder. This increased volume might be useful if you have a mobile which is not very loud. I think I know why it is louder - the WP-350 does not fit very snugly compared and when I manually pressed it against my ears it was the same loudness.
To sum up, I was disappointed by these and though they are well fitting and practical to store and good looking, the sound quality could have been better.
These WP-450 headphones are just as useful as their cheaper siblings but with added style - a smart mix of black and chrome, plus some nice design work has produced a good looking set of headphones. They're pretty comfortable to wear too, even for extended periods although after a few hours I find I need a break from any headphones, personally. They are light in weight which means they don't slip around too much when you move your head, and when you want to store them they have a folding action so they take up less space. They also feature a hidden microphone which is great for taking or making calls when you're hooked up to a mobile phone and it's surprisingly effective too, unless you're in a very noisy area. The controls are all placed intuitively on the earpieces so that you needn't remove them to skip track or change the volume etc.
Obviously, the most important consideration with headphones is how well they sound, and these are pretty good. To be honest I did expect a slightly better sound from them, although they are pleasant to listen to in most cases.Read more ›
