This review is from: Creative WP-450 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with Built-in Microphone and Foldable Design for Storage and Portablility (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Since getting my Creative WP-350 headphones (the next model down to these) last year I have made good use of them. The ease with which a Bluetooth connection can be set up is great, and the usability makes the difference between listening to music and simply not bothering. In particular the fact that there aren't any trailing wires is a bonus for me as they always seemed to tangle up. One downside that seems to be common on Bluetooth headphones is that they can only be paired with one device at a time, so if you want to use it with a laptop then a mobile for instance, you'd have to re-establish a pairing. It's not a long winded process, but can be annoying if you do it a lot.
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. The range of the Bluetooth is excellent and I've been able to go a considerable distance away from my phone before the signal started to break up. On the whole I have to say that I like the WP-450 a lot, but if you're reluctant to part with the extra cash you might want to consider Creative WP-350 Wireless Bluetooth Headphone with Mic - Black
