Creative Technology Ltd. has announced the Middle East launch of a full range of wireless high performance speaker systems that offer wireless solutions to suit different lifestyles and defines how people will enjoy music from their portable devices from now on. The new range comprises the award-winning ZiiSoundTM D5 and Creative InspireTM S2 Wireless, as well as the Creative D200 and Creative D100.
The state-of-the-art speaker systems work with any compatible stereo Bluetooth device – from mobile phones, portable media players to the iPhone, the iPod†, the iPad, netbooks, notebooks and just about every Bluetooth A2DP enabled device.
Creative Inspire S2 Wireless
“Say good-bye to docking speakers because they are going to become a thing of the past. With the emergence of so many wireless capable mobile devices in 2010, Creative is now set to usher in a new era in pure music listening where you can enjoy music with your favourite mobile device through our range of wireless speakers,” said Joseph Liow, Vice President for Personal Digital Entertainment Products at Creative.
“This means that users are now free from the limitation of physically connecting or docking their mobile devices to their speakers to enjoy high quality music without wires – a new era in pure music listening has arrived!,” he added.
The launch of the new speaker systems in the Middle East at this point in time could prove a masterstroke for Creative as the audio visual industry in the Middle East and Africa is poised to grow from over USD 2 billion in 2009 to well over USD 3 billion by 2012.
Desmond Lim, Senior Manager – Regional Sales, Creative Technology Ltd said, “We see enormous growth potential in the region’s audio-visual segment. This market is extremely receptive to new technologies and innovations, especially when it comes to personal entertainment devices. We are confident that the timely launch of Creative’s range of high performance wireless speaker systems will be well received by our growing customer base in this region.”
Incorporating award-winning high quality wireless audio technology and speaker architecture tuned by Creative’s world class audio specialists for the best wireless audio performance possible, each speaker system is engineered to deliver the purest wireless audio in its class.
