Creative Outlier Air V3 Hands-On Review: “The” airy “true-wireless headphones”!

The line Outlier of Creative is a culmination of historical company in quality TWS headphones, which are available at very competitive prices, but without sacrificing quality. That’s why Creative is so dear to them audiophiles, as its products are distinguished by a “Golden Section”, as they offer acoustic perfection and at the same time do not need half monthly to get it. The logos were also designed on this logic Creative Outlier V3, which attempt to build on an already successful recipe. But let’s get to know them better…

Perfect fit and eye-catchy design!

Creative has accustomed us to beautiful and thoughtful design products and no doubt the Outlier Air V3 could not be the exception to the rule. In terms of appearance, they are quite reminiscent of previous sentences of the company, as they are available in black with a ring of color surrounding them. H charging case it is quite large and certainly does not go unnoticed. On one side is the charging port, with the headphones touching to one side to charge. What is worth noting is that this new “generation” of Outlier Air is much lighter compared to their predecessor (weighing just 5.2 grams), while the charging case “weighs” approximately 70 grams.

One element we liked about Creative’s latest true-wireless proposal is its surprisingly comfortable application offer. Whether you use them on a daily basis or in situations where you are on-the-go and to gym, the excellent application they offer in combination with the comfortable and easy “touch” operation make them a real “must-have”, while the accompanying application will surely free your hands (even offering fully customizable options in the controls). At the same time, one of the features offered by the Outlier Air V3 is that they have certification endurance in the water IPX 5, which means splashproof protection against sweat and water drops. Of course, it is worth noting that the case will not have the above certification for this and you should be extra careful.

Undoubtedly, Creative has done very good work in that it has to do with charging true-wireless headphones offering both Qi wireless charging capability and the “classic” wired charging option via USB-C. H autonomy of the headphones “touches” them 10 hours per charge, while the total charging time together with the use of the protective case can last up to 40 hours. It is estimated that the case can charge the headphones up to 3 times. Of course how much the headphones will “stand” without charging depends directly on the mode chosen by the user, Active Noise Reduction the Ambient fashion (which we will analyze below).

Airy silences!

In terms of connectivity, the new TWS wireless headphones from the Outlier family support Bluetooth 5.2 to connect them to your favorite mobile device or computer, with pairing between devices to be done easily and without particular problems. In addition, they have a total 4 microphones (2 in each handset) which if nothing else offer an excellent quality result when you use them to communicate with the “outside world. Outlier Air V3 have two modes, as there is Ambient Mode, which essentially allows the sound of the environment to reach the user’s ears at levels that he has set through the companion app. This feature is ideal if you are on-the-go and do not want to “Cut off” completely from the sounds of the natural environment (in case for example you are walking on the road or you are on the plane and you want to hear the announcements coming from the cockpit). Of course, in addition to the possibility of Ambient mode, there is also the option of Active Noise Reduction, which is offered with a double tap on your headset. However, in terms of autonomy, the only sure thing is that you will not be disappointed!

In addition to the above ANC modes for “Full cut” or the mixing of ambient sounds, the issue is how the Outlier Air V3 “sounds” and here really the creative quality of Creative can not go “unnoticed”! The 5.6mm graphene guides offer a high standard and crystal-clear performance. Of course, since the Outlier Air V3 utilizes its dynamics Super Xi-Fi technology, which introduces the holographic sound, here again the experience is really “riveting”. With default settings enabled, the Outlier Air V3 offers excellent midrange frequencies and crystal clear trebles. The bass is quite dynamic with them low-end frequencies to be the great asset of Creative headphones. With 40 EQ presets, the Outlier Air V3 adapts to any occasion, acting like a sonic chameleon. In fact, they have special settings for games, which indicates the all-around character of these headphones.

And we are… Air-BORNe!

Without a doubt, Creative once again manages to win the impressions, offering a solution that moves again in its philosophy value for money. With a little more than 60 euros you can buy a highly reliable proposal with active noise cancellation capabilities, crystal-clear sound quality, very good performance in the field of autonomy and a lot of possibilities configuration. Creative has once again designed a solution that can “win over” even the most demanding audiophiles.
