Creative WP-250 Bluetooth Wireless Sports Headphones : Good but could be great

Bluetooth Headsets

I used to own a philips bluetooth headphone and when it broke down, i chose this one. First of all: the sound is really good. Music is clear and loud enough for me. Also, when making phone calls, people on the other side hear me loud and clear which means the microphone – hidden in the right hand earpiece – is very good. Although it doesn’t look it, this headphone fits very comfortably. Even while i’m exercising (including running) it stays in place. All it takes is bending the interconnecting wire around the ears. The only thing i regret is that last time i bought the philips. I should have chosen this one in the first place.

I have had these for one week now. Just so everyone knows i am a rather fussy person with anything, so if it does not work exactly as it should i have no issues returning the product and saying that it was rubbish. I do not tolerate paying for rubbish particularly at the price charged for this item. Irritatingly enough, it seems the price has dropped significantly (almost £20) since i bought mine. So for the current price this item is brilliant. For interest sake i am using these with playstation 3 and my samsung galaxy s3. This was great and easy to open. The item looks and feels quality made and durable. These earphone fit perfectly and the rigid mould-able wire allows you to get them to sit just right. They also stay on no matter what you are doing, i am in mechanics and whether i am lifting, crouching, climbing leaning over my machines they stay on. I also tried jumping around with them on and head-banging just for fun and they stayed on perfectly. You can get them right into your ear canal or to sit just at the entrance if that is what you prefer, some people find that the inner ear fit can hurt after awhile, this does both. The design is unusual, the part with creative written on it faces forward with the wire going up and around behind the ears.

Sound playback very good easy to pair on an ipad ipod and iphone would recomend them for use on the mentiened items.

I’ve tried a lot of the bluetooth headphones out there and the reviews convinced me to buy these. They are great quality, easy to use and very reasonable but after a couple of months use i have had to continue the search elsewhere. The reason is the way these fit in your ears. I don’t think i have strangely shaped ears or any deformity but they just don’t sit right and it seems to be that i either need bigger ears or a different shape to my ear canal to make them sit comfortably. In addition i have to pair these with my iphone after each use which is very annoying. Very clear, never drop connection, great sound, well built, but i would suggest trying someone else’s before you settle as they are a very unique fit and you may get tired of adjusting them every two minutes.

Features of Creative WP-250 Bluetooth Wireless Sports Headphones with Built-In Microphone

In-ear, bendable behind-the-neck design that provides a secure fit during any physical activity

My ears needed some time to get used to the headphone, but otherwise the quality of sound, bluetooth range, and battery capacity are an excellent math for the price (even better).

It does its job well, ideally.

They are fine but they are fiddly.

Got these because of what most people put they didn’t like wire’s, these are great, sound and all. However the fit takes a bit of time to get right with some dis-comfort, although once there it is pretty damn good.

I bought these over a year ago after extensive poring over customer and industry reviews of bluetooth headphones. I wanted something which would be reliable and provide good sound quality, to use in various settings including at a desk, while cycling (at a very low volume, of course 😉 . The headphones are definitely reliable and provide excellent sound quality – i can’t tell the difference between these and my wired headphones. On this basis, i would 100% recommend the creative bluetooth headphone set. My gripe, however, is one major problem for me. Despite the ‘mouldable’ neck wire, i simply cannot get these to sit comfortably. On my pair, the left earphone sticks out no matter which way i twist and manipulate the wire, and of course this becomes a little irritating and sore after a while. Looking back, i should have returned these as faulty; i don’t know if this fault is peculiar to my product or a design flaw. As a result, the headphones have been sitting in a box for the best part of the year.

I don’t understand some reviewers. I bought these two weeks ago to replace a pair of plantronics which were functionally useless and they’ve been a brilliant buy. Some reviewers thought that these were uncomfortable or loose etc. Not at all – they’re perfectly comfortable. I can only assume that some users havent been wearing them right. Takes a minute to get used to how to put them on: there are two largish earpieces each with a rubberised in-ear bud connected by a stiff springy hose. Take them off and the hose curls up into a neat coil. Uncoil, place buds in ear and ensure the hose loops over the ear and round the back of the head. Though flexible, the hose can be bent somewhat for improved fit. The sound goes right in the ear and is pretty thumping.

Optimum sonic performance with neodymium drivers

My last pair last 6 months but i got a replacement from amazon the next day they stop working. Excellent battery life performance and excellent sound quality.

Great there is no drop out from the bluetooth, the music is clear and the microphone is crystal clear. Quite comfortable in the ears.

Used by my husband whilst running for listening to music, these are impressive headphones. Very good sound quality, and he commented that the lack of wires gives a real freedom of movement. Comfortable to wear, and easy to use – what could be better?. It’s pouring with rain outside today which makes me wonder if they’d survive the rain – i’ll try to get my husband out for a run later to check.

Easy to use

Compatible with mobile Bluetooth devices, such as laptops, smartphones and portable media players

I bought these directly from creative in january 2015 during a new year sale; they were reduced from an original rrp of about sixty quid to twenty plus four for delivery. Hands down, these are probably the worst headphones i’ve ever used. I was intrigued at bluetooth headphones for use in the gym and general use too; i have a pair of nocs wired headphones which cost about the same as the rrp on these (about sixty quid) which i got for reviewing purposes, and which i like a lot, but when i saw these wp-250s go on sale, i thought i’d go for it. For twenty quid, how bad could it be ?.The answer is “actually quite bad”. Out of the box, they feel pretty plastic-ey. To cut to the chase, i dunno who the hell designed these; the inner-ear fit is absolutely dreadful, and consequently, the sound quality is very average. Since the sound quality is best described as “at best, nothing special”, the poor inner ear fit doesn’t help at all. You seem to have to insert them into your ears by pulling an earlobe to stretch the aural canal a bit, inserting the plug, and rotating through about 120 degrees. In short, these are really not comfortable *at all*, and you’ll be aware of wearing them every second you’re using them.

Bluetooth earphones are an excellent idea – no wire to get tangled as you move. This was my fourth attempt at getting a pair that i could wear in the gym and they weren’t acceptable. They failed partway through my second trip to the gym with them and have now been returned to amazon. These earphones should have been good had they not failed (they’d have got 4/5). All the reviews that say they have problems with them fitting haven’t taken time to wear them in. This will take three or four attempts when you are wearing them for a long time and not just trying them for a few minutes. Because mine went back after the second wearing i hadn’t fully bedded them in. The points i found in getting them to fit are:the earbuds don’t fit fully into the ear canal – it’s right to feel that the earbuds you use are too largethe black wire goes tightly over your ear. That’s what holds them in place. I found that wearing glasses made this fit more awkward.
