Creative Launches Speakers, Headphones, and More

ZiiSound Dx series

SINGAPORE - Creative launches wireless speakers ZiiSound D3x, ZiiSound D5x, and ZiiSound DSx, a one-piece D80 Bluetooth Speaker, ZEN Style M300 and M100 portable media players, and WP-450, WP-350 and WP-250 Bluetooth headphones.

Creative announced the launch of a brand new category of wireless speakers, the ZiiSound Dx series of pure wireless modular speakers.The ZiiSound Dx series consists of the ZiiSound D5x wireless one-piece speaker, ZiiSound D3x wireless one-piece speaker and ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer.

These speakers are set to redefine the home audio experience for consumers and establish a new standard for how retailers sell speakers. With the introduction of pure wireless modularity, Creative changes how consumers can purchase a home audio system.

Flexible Configuration

The ZiiSound Dx series revolutionises the home audio system. In this revolutionary new system, wireless speakers connect independently to stereo Bluetooth devices such as the iPhone, Blackberry, Android phone, iPad or Creative ZiiO tablet, and can also be configured so more speakers are connected wirelessly to form a multi-channel home audio system. The ZiiSound Dx series also features renowned apt-X audio technology for outstanding sound quality.

Unlike with traditional speaker systems, users will no longer need to purchase a fixed speaker configuration for a specific use in the home. Creative’s one-piece pure wireless modular speakers let users upgrade from a single speaker to a larger configuration by simply adding more speakers wirelessly.

Start simple: 1 x ZiiSound D5x or 1 x ZiiSound D3x

Add bass: 1 x ZiiSound D5x + 1 x ZiiSound DSx or 1 x ZiiSound D3x + 1x ZiiSound DSx

Get a wider Soundstage: 1 x ZiiSound D5x (Left Channel) + 1 x ZiiSound D5x (Right Channel) or 1 x ZiiSound D3x (Left Channel) + 1 x ZiiSound D3x (Right Channel)

Create the ultimate wireless entertainment speaker system: 1 x ZiiSound D5x (Left Channel) + 1 x ZiiSound D5x (Centre Channel) + 1 x ZiiSound D5x (Right Channel) + 1 x ZiiSound DSx

Flexible Placement

The built-in flexibility to add or subtract speakers means the same system can have many uses. Users will now be able to create different speakers systems – ideal for music, movies and games – for different rooms throughout the home.

  • A one-piece speaker for bedside music listening
  • A 2.1 speaker system for bedroom or study room for games or music listening
  • A 3.1 speaker system for living room music, movies and game audio entertainment


Low Basic Start Cost

Using pure wireless modular speakers will also translate into cost savings. Everyone will now be able to purchase a single pure wireless modular speaker unit for as low as S$199, with the assurance of being able to add on speakers later. This is unlike traditional speaker systems, where users are forced to buy another system to expand or reconfigure the existing speaker system. This translates into the high cost of purchasing multiple systems.
