The Creative Outlier Sports are a fitness-focused set of in-ear headphones, designed to offer a comfortable and secure fit, whether you’re sitting at your desk or sprinting. They’re water resistant (to cope with rain and sweat), and they have a battery life north of ten hours (so you won’t be able to get out of exercising because your special earbuds have run out of battery again). They look quite promising, so let’s put ’em to the test!
It isn’t often that you find Bluetooth headphones for gamers, but that’s exactly what you get with the Creative Sound Blaster Evo Wireless. They cost a fair chunk of change at £50, so we’re hoping for great sound and solid build quality in addition to the flexibility offered by a triple-mode 3.5mm, USB and Bluetooth headset. We put ’em to the test, and here’s what we found!

Creative has been a giant in PC gaming since its very inception; its Sound Blaster cards were once synonymous with sound cards. Few people buy dedicated sound cards any more, but Creative are still finding ways to show off their long-lasting aural expertise.
Today we’re looking at one example: the P5 in-ear headphones, part of Creative’s new Sound BlasterX pro-gaming series launched at gamescom last year.

Here’s our take, after going hands-on in the slightly quieter environment here at XSR Towers.
Today we’re looking at the Woof 3, a Bluetooth speaker from Creative Labs. The speaker is more feature-rich than most, thanks to its ability to play MP3 files directly from microSD cards as well as streaming music over Bluetooth. The Woof 3 is good looking too, with a chrome top and coloured body. Let’s take a closer look, and see whether it justifies its £40 price point.
