Representing wireless freedom and unmatchable performance, the Outlier Air is our first TWS headphones in the series.
Boasting a playtime of up to 30 hours, a 5.6mm superior graphene driver diaphragm and Bluetooth® 5.0 with aptX and AAC audio, the Outlier Air impresses with detailed and immersive audio reproduction. It is also certified IPX5 water-resistant with a comfortable fit for all-day wear — perfect for work, gym sessions, or even while travelling!
In pursuit of audio excellence, Outlier Air carries the true spirit of endurance and true performance.
30 Hours1 of Pure Endurance
Out of the box, Outlier Air has a jaw-dropping battery life of up to 10 hours. TWS headphones in the market typically ranges from 3 to 6 hours of battery life, we took that and doubled it — all while saving you the hassle of having to constantly recharge your headphones.
2 TIMES THE POWER
The charging case provides up to 2 times of recharge on both earbuds — that’s 20 hours!
30 HOURS TOTAL PLAYTIME
In total, the incredibly long-lasting battery life provides a total playtime of up to 30 hours. That’s enough playtime for the longest flight route in the world!
Graphene Driver Diaphragm
To achieve audio excellence, we have incorporated a top-quality 5.6mm graphene driver diaphragm — the world’s thinnest and hardest nano-material that is lighter than paper, stronger than steel, and a better conductor of electricity than copper. The graphene diaphragm consumes minimal energy while providing superior audio quality, so Outlier Air can optimize power to drive excellent audio reproduction for detailed highs, well-balanced mids, and immersive bass.
Stay motivated with the powerful beats and ride the momentum of your playlist as you take on the toughest gym grind!
Dual-voice Calls with Smart Assistants
One major flaw of existing TWS headphones is that they only allow for calls in mono, where audio is only heard from one side, and is usually restricted to the right earbud. With Outlier Air, you can hear audio out of both earbuds while on a call and also have direct access to Siri or Google Assistant!
Both earbuds are fitted with built-in mic for calls and smart assistant functions. All you need to do is to assign your preferred side as the main unit control. The secondary earbud will then be automatically paired — no extra steps required!
Remove both ear buds from the charging case. The light indicator will blink in red and blue, meaning that your Creative Outlier Air is now in Bluetooth pairing mode.
On your device (e.g. Mobile phone), go into the Bluetooth settings and search for the Outlier Air.
Look for the individual ear bud that has the indicator physically blinking in red and blue, and pair to that. This ear bud will now be assigned as the main unit.
After selecting the main unit, the secondary unit will automatically initiate pairing.
The prompt will flash on your device, asking for permission to pair your phone to the other ear bud. Select the “Pair” button to complete the process.
Re-selecting the main unit:
While in use, place the intended secondary unit back into the charging case. The unit that is still in use will automatically be assigned as the main unit. This process should take about 5 to 10 seconds.
Pairing Outlier Air to a second Bluetooth device:
Switch off Bluetooth connection on Device A. Press and hold the button of the main unit for 3 seconds to enter into Bluetooth pairing mode. Select and pair Outlier Air on your Bluetooth settings on Device B.
Use just one side of the earbuds to stay in check with the surrounding while on your coffee run! When you place a single earbud back into the charging case, the unit that is still in use will automatically assume the main unit controls with play/pause, calls and smart assistant functions.
To switch off, simply place the earbuds back into the charging case and they will switch off automatically.

COMPLETE WIRELESS FREEDOM WITH CREATIVE BT-W3
Free yourself from wires completely with Creative BT-W3 (sold separately), an audio transmitter that allows you to enjoy high-quality wireless audio with non-Bluetooth devices!

If you’re looking for well-built truly wireless in-ear headphones that perform decently overall at a reasonable price, then get the Creative Outlier Air.
Yes, the Creative Outlier Air are a superb value. Sound quality, while not neutral, should be enjoyable for most consumers. The substantial battery life is appreciated, as is the high-quality Bluetooth codec support.
In the world of true wireless earbuds, the Creative Outlier Air are up against competitors costing two, three or even four times the price. Yet they hold their own, and in some ways even better those rivals, offering a perfectly stable wireless connection, incredible battery life and – thanks partly to Bluetooth aptX – absolutely fantastic sound.

An exprience like no other. I have yellers at the gym but now I don’t hear nothing even when they train and strain their vocal cords next to my head. Before I settled on creative I had tried pretty much everything but these are the only ones where I feel the bass in my throat, lungs and plexus. They are a legit performance enhancer and a great add on to preworkout. Don’t think about it, just buy them.
Great sounding earphones.
