Creative has once again tinkered in its audio lab and launched wireless in-ears with touch controls. Right, with touch controls on both earpieces. Gone are the wild presses of any buttons to answer a call. The Outlier Air V2 are sleek, sweat resistant and are designed to deliver improved call quality – matching the touch aspects.
The whole thing is connected via Bluetooth 5.0 with cell phone, tablet and co. In addition, the batteries last for 12 hours. That means one can hear music in the morning while jogging, when one comes from work, until one goes to bed and in the morning still the next jogging round flits, without it also in the least the audio quality too close. And if you need more, the pocket-sized charging station comes with it.
Everything sounds nice and good. We took a closer look and not only examined Creative’s data but also tested the new Outlier Air V2 thoroughly. Let’s see how generation two differs from the first Outlier Air.
