Great little wireless speakers, but do the research 1stApr 23, 2011
Bought these to use with a new Dell Inspiron 14R, which includes an Intel Centrino Bluetooth module. Using a Logitech V470 Bluetooth mouse with it with no problems. Wanted wireless speakers mainly for convenience.
The Creative speakers work fine but there were a number of issues I had to do the research on and resolve to get it exactly the way I wanted. Main thing was the speakers would NOT auto-connect to the laptop when it booted -- I had to manually press the connect button on the speakers. Sounds like a little thing but this was TOTALLY unacceptable to me.
Turns out this was a limitation of the Bluetooth stack on my laptop, NOT the Creative speakers; short version is -- the default BT stack installed by Microsoft in Windows 7 for systems with an Intel Centrino BT module is very limited as far as functionality and that means no capability for things like auto-connection for audio devices, etc. So, some hunting around and I located a 3rd party, non-Intel, PREMIUM quality BT stack from Toshiba which solved the problem, costing me around $35.00. Definitely worth it though -- once paired, the speakers switch over from the internal laptop speakers to the external wireless Creative BT speakers automatically and seamlessly a few seconds after booting the system.
I did notice that musically, the Creative speakers were WAY too quiet and exhibited a preponderance of bass and lack of high frequencies, a matter that was easily resolved using the equalizer and pre-amp control embedded in iTunes 10.x. Once adjusted, the audio quality is now "pretty good", especially when seated directly in front of them and with sufficient separation.
ALSO -- unlike some of the other reviewers have noted here, I have NOT had any problems with audio drop-outs from using a BT mouse, even during heavy use of the mouse (like in games). Perhaps that is (at least in part) due to the fact I am using a premium Toshiba Bluetooth stack and not the default Microsoft/Intel stack.
At this point, I am 100% satisfied with the purchase and recommend these speakers highly.

Great Small Bluetooth SpeakersOct 17, 2010
By Daniel Schommer
These Speakers are not meant to rattle your windows, but these Creative T12 Pure Wireless Bluetooth Speakers work great pairing with my Asus Netebook and my BlueBridge enabled Samsung HDTV. The TV's bezel speakers are too small for intelligible sound for my ears. So if you are looking for fine wireless sound for tight spaces, these speakers will satisfy most.

Horrible Bluetooth ConnectionJan 07, 2011
The speakers themselves are quite nice. They sound good and are of high quality build, even the little rubber shoes at the bottom work really well. That said, these speakers' biggest selling point is that they're wireless and Bluetooth enabled. The problem is that they don't work at all when there are other Bluetooth devices around. I have a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. After pairing the speakers, the sound that came out was really choppy like there was a lot of latency. Every now and then they will simply disconnect from my laptop. I finally decided to disable the other Bluetooth devices. First the keyboard was disabled. The sound improved. Then after I disabled the mouse, the speakers started sounding normal. This is really disappointing. The whole reason behind using Bluetooth is to be wireless. Now I have to make a choice between my input devices and my speakers. FYI, my laptop is the current Macbook Pro running Snow Leopard. Your mileage may vary if your hardware is different.
Creative does sell a set of wired Inspire T12 (I don't understand why they were too lazy to assign different model numbers to the wired and wireless versions) that go for half the price. I might just buy those instead. I could use an audio input wire instead but why pay almost double for the same set of speakers if I'm not going to leverage the only difference between the two models.
Frustrating because everything else about the speakers are so nice.

Decent SpeakersDec 02, 2010
I was a bit skeptical but took a chance and I'm glad I did. I've got a Netbook with Bluetooth and thought this would be a good solution, which it is
Pro's : Good Quality Sound
Works with Linux
Con's : Other bluetooth devices interfere. I've got a Bluetooth mouse and with it connected frequent drops in sound, need to disable mouse and just go with touchpad.
All in all I'm very happy, I dropped one star for this not playing well with other bluetooth devices connected. But I'm still very happy with the speakers I recommend them as a wireless speaker system with quality sound.

Excellent Bluetooth SpeakersJul 04, 2011
I bought these speakers for use with my Motorola Droid 2 as I use this phone for all of my music needs (with a 16GB SD card, it easily holds my entire music library). I didn't want to have to tether my phone as I find that cumbersome, and I wanted to be able to have my phone next to me where I could get to it quickly in case I received a call.
After some searching, I discovered these Creative Bluetooth speakers. As I have had good luck with Creative speakers in the past, I decided to go for these, despite them being slightly pricier than other, similar models made by other companies.
I have to say, I am extremely pleased with this purchase. The sleek, black design looks very good sitting in my office. The volume is sufficiently loud (which is one reason I didn't want to use my phone by itself - I couldn't hear it if I left its immediate proximity), and the sound quality is sufficient (see below for why I say sufficient). In addition, the speakers were very easy to setup - easily syncing with my phone and playing music in a matter of a minute or two.
The only complaint I have is that I noticed that the speakers fuzz slightly if a large enough item is moved between them and the phone. I first discovered this when I set a box down in front of my speakers and the sound fuzzed out (and eventually disconnected). I don't necessarily blame the speakers as I believe this is a function of Bluetooth, but it is something to be aware of depending on how you want to use the speakers.
All in all, these speakers were a great purchase, and I highly recommend them!
