One of the new products from Creative is the WP-250 stereo Bluetooth headset. The fact that wireless headphones are more convenient than their wired brothers is understandable. Wires are designed to get tangled, clinging and infuriating. But how good are WP-250s for listening to music? Is it convenient to use them? We will try to find out in the review. Comes with a mini USB charging cable and spare rubber earbuds for the speakers. Headphones connect to iPhone through Bluetooth like any similar headset. The only difference is that the WP-250 reproduces a stereo signal. The headphones sit on the head somewhat unusual. Traditionally, similar devices have small earbuds and a large sweetheart connecting them. The opposite is true here. Lightweight flexible bridge and two standard headsets on the right and left. However, there are no inconveniences. Speakers with soft silicone earbuds fit securely into your ears, and the sweetheart can be bent into any convenient shape. Headphones do not fly off even if you shake your head. Bluetooth the signal from iPhone is received fairly confidently. WP-250 works seamlessly through the wall, you can put your phone on the table and move around your apartment or office. At the same time, receive calls and even make calls. The claimed battery life in playback and talk mode is seven and a half hours.
What's with the sound?
I decided to listen to some familiar compositions and for comparison I took studio Technics, which are large, comfortable, but wired. The first piece of music heard on the WP-250 surprised me a little. An echo effect was seen in the second channel. The vocals were repeated in the left earpiece with some delay. I switched to another song. Everything turned out to be good here, respectively, we can conclude that this is not an iron error. Then, out of interest, I climbed into the closet for the source, the CD from which the mp3 was made. Listening to the reference on good equipment brought unexpected results. This song does have a second vocals. Apparently the power iPhone is simply not enough to pump Technics speakers. At the same time, small headphones work at full and transmit high frequencies in more detail. Miracles did not happen to the lower classes. The double bass sounded equally bad in the large headphones and in the WP-250. But here it is already a matter of the source. It's just that there are no lamps in iPhone. All controls are placed on the right headset. Here are the volume, mode button and rewind controls. What is very convenient, rewind works with any music application, from a standard iPod player to Vkontakte music. There is also hidden a microphone for talking on the phone. The voice is transmitted clearly and well. The WP-250 has a mode to switch iPhone to voice control. You can call the subscriber, switch to another album without hands at all, simply using voice commands. WP-250 is designed for active users who don't want to part with music in their workout. Or for everyone who is tired of wires. Quite a worthy replacement for wired headphones in terms of sound quality. But it is much more convenient to use.
