I bought these speakers and the Sound Blaster wireless audio transmitter for my son for Christmas. I plugged in the speakers and hooked them up via the direct audio cable to gauge the sound. I thought I had to install the software and pair the speakers to get them running on wireless but as I plugged in the transmitter I thought I would just uplug the audio cable to see what happens. Sure enough the music from his laptop was streaming wirelessly to the speakers. The sound is clear and continuous. The base is good enough for a medium-sized room. There was some distortion when you crank the volume up beyond about three quarters but that was the only drawback. Remeber this is only through the usb transmitter and no additional stations were needed for same room sound.

Very good under limited conditionsJan 16, 2010
By eddie b
I bought the T20W speakers along with the Express slot transmitter. The setup is easy if you know anything about your computer and operating system (and you should). The sound was great for small, portable speakers. Now for the limited conditions: 1. I could not use them in my backyard, sixty feet away, because there were three walls between my notebook transmitter and the T20W speakers. I realize obstacles reduce reception, but this was excessive. 2. Not having the ability to control anything but volume, was the reason I returned the components. These speakers need the same four-function control panel that is incorporated in the SB1122 wireless receiver (i.e. play/pause, previous/next). And it would be simple to do because all these components are part of the X-Fi family. If you intend to use the speakers in a different section of the house than the computer, I suggest using the separate wireless receiver so you can plug it into any (powered) speakers you prefer, and still have basic remote contol of your music.

Don't buy this product!Nov 26, 2010
I purchased these speakers and a transmitter based on Amazon's recommendation. They do not work together. The speakers are probably fine if you connect them via the RCA jacks on the back, but then what would be the point of having wireless speakers?
The included instructions are criminally bad. The english language instructions consist of pictures of how to connect your new (and expensive) speakers via the RCA jacks. There is not one word about how to get them to work wirelessly. I also purchased an X-Fi transmitter, and while it works, no signal is found by the speakers - 6 feet away from the transmitter.
I visited the company's web site and found the exact same 'instructions' on how to connect using the RCA jacks. Their knowledgebase contains lots of advertising verbage, but no real information on their products.
Terrible product, terrible instructions and documentation, terrible web site, and no support. You cannot even send them an email to beg for help.
Do not buy this product.

Great speakers!Dec 23, 2009
By Mark Aguilar
I bought them for my laptop and having music all around my apartment. The sound is great. Although it took me about 30 minutes to get them working and reading several times the tiny instructions but everything sounds excellent with no delay. Definitely recommend them. I got them through another store which were cheaper than Amazon.com.

Compatibility within Creative wirelessAug 04, 2010
By Sam B
These are great speakers,
BUT dont be mislead, they ONLY work with certain Creative wireless transmitters, not all, for example it was suggested that I get the X-mode wireless transmitter bundled up, BUT it does not work together.
The USB stick one works well but documentation is scarce
If you have a problem, then count on a long search, as documentation is VERY scarce, just one fold out page, not clear at all. Neither is the customer service.
Once you have figured it out, then, it's great. So I hesitate between a 1 and a 5 star rating. Was upset as I had to fork out another 100$ unexpectedly, as my prime aim was wireless speakers.
To have a system where you have 2 plugs for power (110v) plus leads from a receiver to speakers, which are supposed to be wireless is nonsense.
But determination got me there (+100$) now I have just the speakers plugged in and the stick on my PC, some 20 yrds away.
Sound quality is excellent.
