Audio Sync

Real-time Audio Sync with aptX® Low Latency

Bluetooth wireless streaming is a common option for music, with limitations that are bound to occur. For instance, a constrained bandwidth typically produces inferior quality audio that are often not suitable for high quality usage.

Creative BT-W2 not only settles for the basic sub-band coding (SBC) wireless transmission over Bluetooth, it also supports aptX Low Latency codec - great for delivering high quality audio over Bluetooth.

aptX Low Latency technology is cleverly designed to overcome bandwidth constraints and latency issues. So you will enjoy high quality wireless audio with minimal latency or delay.1

1 Receivers will need to support aptX-LL audio codec for optimum audio performance.

True Bluetooth® Voice-back Channel for Voice Communication

Unlike other Bluetooth transmitters, Creative BT-W2 features a Bluetooth voice-back channel that transmits voice back to the transceiver over Bluetooth. So you will constantly experience crystal-clear, true wireless communication.


Plug and Play Functionality

The audio power you need combines with the simplicity you love. Simply plug Creative BT-W2 into your PC or Mac and you can instantly play audio over Bluetooth and straight through your Bluetooth-enabled device.

What's more, it is also compatible with the PlayStation 4 Console, offering great wireless audio with communication with your gaming headset's built-in mic.

highly recommended for use on PC's, laptops and consoles without Bluetooth connectivity, even more essential for PlayStation 4 as it doesn't allow Bluetooth headset connection. Compatible with PS4.
