A wireless system as versatile as you are
Finally you can get the flexibility to set up your speaker system the way you want to. With the ZiiSound D5x wireless Bluetooth modular speaker system, you can connect up to three D5x speaker units* at any one time. With the addition of the matching dedicated ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer, you get powerful bass enhancement on demand.
So, whether you place three D5x speakers in the living room or the lounge, or just two D5x speakers with the DSx subwoofer in a discreet corner, it's easy to set up your system any way and anywhere you desire**. A choice of entertainment options - from theatre-like "Multi-channel" to room-filling "Party" modes - add to its versatility. The result is you'll have a more enjoyable time being entertained in private or when hosting a party.
Being a top-of-the-line system, the ZiiSound D5x also delivers the dynamic audio performance that serious audiophiles demand. Designed to meet the highest standards for pristine wireless audio, it does not sacrifice sound quality - all that you lose are the ugly wires cluttering up your rooms. Indeed, you've never heard better audio streamed wirelessly from your Bluetooth-enabled music players or other entertainment devices.
Adding up Towards Audio Greatness
Start simple with a single ZiiSound D5x speaker which works perfectly right out of the box - an audiophile-grade speaker in its own right. You can stream music to it wirelessley, or use it to charge your iPhone or iPod while it's playing.
Add additional ZiiSound D5x units* for an enhanced listening experience, a ZiiSound DSx subwoofer for added bass, or everything in one fell swoop - all at your own pace.
Your speaker configuration doesn't need to remain fixed forever. Power a house party with a maxed-out 3.1 system; but for day-to-day music listening, just reconfigure it into smaller standalone systems which you can place anywhere and rearrange anytime.
Let's Get the Party Started
Fill your house with perfectly synchronised music in the aptly-named "Party" mode. Up to three ZiiSound D5x speakers can blast the same song in unison, in different rooms**. Throw in a ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer for enhanced bass and your party is underway.
Perfect for pairing with your home theatre setup, the "Multi-channel" mode expands the soundscape and provides for a realistic-sounding movie experience, complete with all the explosions and more.
Easy High-performance Bluetooth Audio
With the ZiiSound D5x, it's simple to wirelessly stream music from any compatible stereo Bluetooth device, such as your mobile phone or notebook, from a range of up to 10 metres from the speakers.
The apt-X audio codec provides you with superior Bluetooth stereo audio when you stream from apt-X enabled devices. For the best audio experience, pair your ZiiSound D5x with a Creative ZiiO tablet or the Creative ZEN X-Fi3 MP3 player.
Striking Accuracy and Detail in Your Music
High-performance, precision-tuned full range drivers with efficient digital amplifiers in the ZiiSound D5x speaker deliver a complete audiophile experience like no other.
Sleek One-piece Chassis with Touch-sensitive Controls
With its neat contemporary design, encased in a matte black mesh cloth, the ZiiSound D5x provides the perfect balance of design and performance while enhancing your living room or desktop.
With the ZiiSound D5x, you'll also get control at your fingertips. Simply glide your fingers along the touch-sensitive volume controls and set your desired volume level.
Give Your iPhone/iPod Wireless Remote Capabilities***
Simply plug the included Creative BT-D5 Bluetooth transmitter into your iPhone or 30-pin iPod*** to give it Bluetooth and apt-X capabilities for pristine music playback. You can also easily charge your iPhone or iPod while it's playing.
Wireless Audio for Your Computer
Don't panic even if your computer doesn't have stereo Bluetooth built-in. Give it wireless audio streaming capabilities, with the Creative BT-D1 Bluetooth USB transmitter (sold separately). It pairs with the ZiiSound D5x in mere seconds and also works with other Creative wireless speakers.
Versatile Connectivity Options
While it works seamlessly with wireless Bluetooth devices, the speaker system also allows for a wired connection via its AUX-in port for other portable devices, like MP3 players.
* Please note that ZiiSound D5x can only be linked with up to two additional ZiiSound D5x units and one ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer. The ZiiSound D5x cannot be linked with ZiiSound D3x, and vice-versa.
** At a distance of up to 30 metres, measured in open space.

small system. My sitting room is 5m by 8m in size and this system is more than enough although I am tempted to buy the sub woofer for extra heavy base. Although really not needed!
It is great when you have friends round as they can take turns at putting on songs and playlists they from their mobile phones. I use it alot for listening to live concerts or radio over youtube and radio apps on my mobile. Works really well!
Some older mobiles can struggle with the bluetooth and this can cause songs to skip now and again. Apple phones work perfectly and my HTC one works brilliantly with it also. To be honest if you have a mobile that is no older than 2 years old I wouldn't worry about this. (My HTC desire struggled!)
Unfortunately I have a Panasonic TV which is not compatible with any other brands of speakers. So make sure and check with your TV brand before buying. I was a tad gutted about this but I still love these speakers!
Hope this review has helped you make up your mind! (BUY NOW!)
Would happily have given them thousands of stars except that one time I needed them to work easily they just would not connect. The only reason I can come up with is that I was in an exhibition hall, surroounded by all sorts of complicated machinery and something was conflicting with the signal but it did create a very stressful half an hour until they finally started working. Still don't know why they started working!
Volume control isn't as subtle as it might be with the iPhone - but think it's more to do with the iPhone than anything else.
Creative are definitely aiming high with this set of Bluetooth speakers. Everything about the product feels high quality. Un-boxing the speakers and the first thing you notice is how small they are. Then picking them up you notice how heavy they are! They really do feel solid and well made. The styling is minimalistic with the speakers being a simple rectangular shape with touch sensitive volume/link controls in the centre. The end caps deserve a particular mention as they are a deep, mirror finished black-chrome and made of solid metal. This just adds to the feeling of a well made and high quality product.
Linking to my Android phone took seconds and I was then able to stream all my music from my NAS drive. I also tried the supplied Bluetooth adapter on my son's Ipod Touch which also worked simply and easily. There is also a line-in connector which I tried with my laptop, and once again this worked perfectly.
Sound quality really is very good indeed. Highs are bright and clear and the mid range is rich and warm with individual instruments and vocals being well defined and easy to pick out. The bass is also good but not that powerful, but considering the size of the drivers that is not too surprising. I suspect that the additional Creative ZiiSound DSX Pure Wireless Bluetooth Subwoofer for use with D3x and D5x will turn these speakers into something very special indeed.
Looking around online I was able to find out that the speakers are rated at 15 Watts RMS per channel. This was more than adequate to fill my entire open plan ground floor with rather loud very high quality sound. Even at maximum volume there was no distortion. Stereo separation was also good, but not forced or unrealistic in the way some "spatial stereo" speakers can sound.
One last thing that deserves a mention is the packaging. This was easy to open, well designed and I was impressed that almost all the packaging was cardboard and recyclable with the use of plastics being minimal.
Overall; 5 stars! - The biggest compliment I can pay these speakers is that I spent most of the last weekend going through my music collection listening to tracks I have not listened to in a while and enjoying them all over again!
