Summary from rtings
Acceptable for mixed usage. These headphones will be better-suited for sports due to their truly wireless design that is stable and breathable. Their sound quality isn’t the best, but they’ll satisfy fans of bass-heavy genres. They are quite bulky truly wireless headphones; their fit doesn’t isolate that much noise, which won’t be ideal for public transit, but they can be efficient for a work environment. They shouldn’t be used for watching TV or gaming because of their very high latency, which will give you a delay between your audio and video.

They have a student store. Maybe someone with access can let others know what the prices are for students

54.99 there as well.
I have a pair, amazing sound and battery life. The main negatives for me are the slightly bulky charging case (fairly minor) but also the comfort levels which you should never underestimate as I can't really wear these for more than an hour at a time. Currently waiting for some foam tips to arrive to hopefully help.

I tried 'inairs' from Amazon which are much, much better for comfort but they keep coming off very easily when I remove them from my ears and they don't charge in the case so doesn't really solve the problem completely. Going to try the Spinfit 360 if the other foam pair I bought from eBay aren't any good.
For the price, they are great. APT X and AAC support makes them perfect for Android or Apple phones.

Battery is strong. And using them for TV viewing is good too.

Me and my partner wear one ear each and go for a walk listening to music together

Would highly recommend

I have these and the battery life is pretty great.. the sound however certain isn't good
Wireless buds with low latency. Anyone please recommend?
I have had these since Christmas. They have been amazing so far. The battery life is insane. As previously mentioned the charging case is a little bulky, but it doesn't bother me. The sound quality seems great for wireless buds, better than airpods due to the better seal. Lastly they fit comfortably and could wear them for hours no problem, however, everyone is different, but wanted to let you know they can be comfortable. Honestly for this price I wouldn't recommend them more.

Couple of things, it could be down to the seal but also; what are you comparing them to?

Seal is fine, you're probably on to something with what am I comparing them to. Certainly well above the price of these so maybe I'm being harsh but I just felt the sound was dull/veiled overall muddy

I have quite large earholes sometimes get draughty medium/large

Great set of buds for the price,had them since Dec last year,no problems so far,loads of reviews on YouTube
I bought a pair a few weeks back. I've been wearing them to get through my night shifts at Asda and they've been superb. Great battery, good sound (they don't sound particularly far off apple earphone quality) & so useful.

Definitely worth the money!

Thanks for this. I was searching in vain for a while to make sure that the small/mediums would fit in the case before buying. Sounds like they would
Spinfit support is very good I asked and they suggested what I bought to fit the case this is the email

Thanks for contacting SpinFit!


Technically, CP240 will fit. But it might be too tall to fit in the charging case. So I'd recommend you to get CP360 for your Creative Outlier.
We've also gotten some feedback that the large size of CP360 wouldn't be able to fit perfectly in the case, either. Only medium size or smaller could fit properly.
If you don't mind take off the tips while charging, I'd say CP240 and CP360-L are both compatible with your earbuds:)


Hope you find it helpful! Feel free to contact us if you have any questions:)

Brilliant thanks so much @daverob , appreciate it!
Anyone ordered and received the earphones yet? I got an out of stock email!
I had two pairs of these and sent both back Sound was fine but the big issue with them was connectivity I had constant drop outs with both pairs I had Tried on multiple devices but the same issue I just couldn’t live with it

Went the other end of the spectrum and bought a pair of Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Brilliant sound but that’s where the positives end The battery drain issue with these is absolutely infuriating Stick them in the charging case and if you don’t use them again for five days are so not only is the case completely dead but so are the buds I’m currently sitting here waiting for then them to charge again having been ready to go out only to find them dead

The search for a decent pair goes on Tempted by the Buds Which are currently on sale
