Creative Technology Ltd today announced the launch of brand new range of wireless devices featuring ZiiSound™ Dx series of pure wireless modular speakers, Creative ZEN Style M300 music, photo and video player with Bluetooth audio playback and Creative WP series Bluetooth music listening and voice communication headphones with “invisible mic”.
This range is in addition to the recently launched Creative ZiiO 7” and 10” Pure Wireless Entertainment Tablets. Creative’s Wireless Modular Bluetooth Speakers clubbed with ZiiO Tablets complete the wireless entertainment experience for the users.
ZiiSound Dx Series of Pure Wireless Modular Speaker System
The ZiiSound Dx series consists of the ZiiSound D5x wireless one-piece speaker, ZiiSound D3x wireless one-piece speaker and ZiiSound DSx wireless subwoofer.
With the introduction of pure wireless modularity, Creative changes how consumers can purchase a home audio system.
In this 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.
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
Effective Basic Start Cost
Everyone will now be able to purchase a single pure wireless modular speaker unit, 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.
The ZiiSound D5x and the ZiiSound DSx will be available in India at selected retail outlets from Early August 2011, while the ZiiSound D3x will be available from Early September 2011.
