After reviewing Creative’s Pebble Pro Speakers, I couldn’t wait to check out some more of their products, and they were kind enough to send over the Creative Sensemore Air Wireless Earphones. They sound and work great right out of the box, but you’ll get the most from them if you don’t mind using an app or two.
These earphones feature 6mm bio-cellulose drivers that Creative’s sound team have expertly tuned to make sure anything you listen to can be heard loud and clear, no matter if it’s high, mid, or low levels of sound. They sound great, especially thanks to connecting to your devices via Bluetooth 5.2. They also feature an IPX5 water and sweat proof rating, so you can use these working out or in the rain.
While they sound great as soon as you pair them to your device, you can customize them more with the Creative app. Here you can adjust the many preset EQ settings or make your own, adjust and change the touch controls and modes, and more to your liking. There’s also some interesting features you can activate and adjust such as Sensemore mode that transforms these into a pair of faux hearing aids that amplify speech and sounds should you need to use them this way.
If you’re an audiophile that wants to take things even further, you’ll be happy to know the Sensemore Air are certified Super X-Fi ready, with an additional app for it of course. For those who don’t know, Super X-Fi recreates a professional, multi-speaker system experience in these earphones so you can hear every piece of sound as though you were standing in the middle of it.
So while this feature is amazing and makes it feel like you’re in the studio or at a concert, the caveat is that you can only use this feature on songs you have downloaded to your device. Also, it sadly doesn’t support streaming services such as YouTube, Spotify, Hulu, and such, but here’s hoping one day it will.
Back to the highlights, these earphones feature four mics, two for detecting and filtering background noise with ANC, and two to pick up your voice to make sure you’re heard clearly. It’s good to know ANC is starting to be commonplace on both ear and headphones, and these do a pretty good job of tuning out some background noise as long as it isn’t too crazy.
I’m also glad to say the battery life on these is pretty good, as you can get roughly ten hours on a full charge with ANC off, eight or so with it on, and you can pop the earbuds into the case for ten minutes in an emergency to get two hours of use. The case can be charged via USB-C or my new favorite way, wireless with any 5w or higher wireless charger to give your earbuds another 30-some hours of playtime when on the go.
The Creative Sensemore Air Wireless Earphones are great for anyone who wants or needs some on a budget, thanks to their awesome price of $80. For that you get amazing audio that you can fine tune with the Creative and Super X-Fi apps, some neat bells and whistles with ANC and touch controls you can adjust, and more that will please your audio senses.
