A major part of getting the best sensory experience out of your entertainment lies in the quality of your audio. The Creative T4 Wireless is specially engineered and designed to meet - and perhaps even go beyond - all your entertainment audio needs.
The Creative T4 Wireless is equipped with aptX® and AAC high-definition codecs, giving you high-resolution wireless Bluetooth® audio that sounds as good as audio from a wired connection.
The audiophile-grade aluminium driver in each satellite delivers full midrange and ultra-clear highs, giving you clear, crisp audio.
The powerful yet compact Creative SLAM™ (Symmetrically Loaded Acoustic Module) subwoofer is professionally engineered and tuned to perfection to bring you realistic heart-thumping bass for a completely engaging gaming or movie experience.
Bluetooth wireless connectivity gives you the freedom and convenience to move around your room with your smart device as you're not tied down by any wires.1 And with aptX, you're assured of uncompromised audio quality.
With the NFC (Near Field Communication) receptor on the Audio Control Pod, you can simply tap your NFC-enabled device on it to pair and then you're all set to stream and enjoy your music.
Connect with multiple Bluetooth devices! With Creative Multipoint, you can have two Bluetooth stereo devices paired to the speakers at any one time and easily toggle between them.2
The Creative T4 Wireless comes with an optical input for digital signals, so you can directly send audio from sources such as your HD TV or sound cards without loss of resolution. It also has RCA analog inputs for connection to your video console or DVD player, as well as a 3.5mm input for connection to smart devices and portable media players.
For late-night gaming or movie-watching, there's no need to worry about waking up the household. The Creative T4 Wireless' Audio Control Pod is integrated with a dedicated headphone jack so that you can conveniently plug in your headphones when the need arises.
Fortunately, these aren't dance steps but what you can do with the speakers' multi-functional Audio Control Pod!
Press the Source button to toggle instantly between the Aux-in and optical inputs. Tap your NFC-enabled device on it for easy one-touch pairing. And finally, turn the Audio Control Pod itself to make precise volume adjustments.
Increase or reduce the desired bass level by simply using the adjustment knob located on the subwoofer.
The IR Remote lets you take control of your speakers without you having to leave the couch! You can perform source selection (Bluetooth, Aux-in and optical), turn the speaker on or off, adjust the volume and even control music playback.
The Creative T4 Wireless' satellites are designed to deliver powerful audio despite their small size. The small footprint makes it easy for you to position them wherever you want, while saving space on your desktop or living room table. The satellites can also be wall-mounted, making them ideal as TV speakers in the living room. Simply remove the detachable satellite desktop stands and they're ready to be mounted (brackets not included).

Really great sound with tiny speakers as long as you understand its limitations relative to YOUR needs!Nov 29, 2013

A friend of mine dubbed 2013 the year of the cheap small bluetooth speaker. Every time you turn around, someone is promising ginormous floor-standing speaker sound packaged in tiny little speakers.
The Creative Speaker system is definitely NOT in that category. The side speakers are much smaller than I expected .... only slightly larger than most of the cheaper small bluetooth speakers... But the sound is as good as many bookshelf speakers 10 times their size. I believe the key is the subwoofer since that provides the main "oomph" for the system.
I hooked these up in the kitchen today so I could listen to my iPad music while preparing Thanksgiving dinner. The whole system was small enough to sit on the kitchen counters and still leave me with ample room to work.
At first, I connected via Bluetooth but found that the transitions between songs were not clean and overall, the sound quality was not as good as other bluetooth systems. Then I hooked the iPad up using a set of RCA cables (left and right wires plug into the sub while a single connector plugs into the earphone jack of the iPad). This resulted in a much better sound. The Creative kit provides a standard cable for this purpose... however, I have a gold-tipped version from Mediabridge which sounded even better.
I do have a few quibbles with the system:
-- isn't as portable due to the number of piece parts that come with the system not to mention the cords. This definitely needs a permanent home.
-- the bluetooth sound quality is not as clear as other bluetooth speakers I have heard
-- the remote does not work if you have your device plugged in via the RCA cable (in other words, you can't advance to the next song, pause etc) using the remote.
Overall, this is a great little system if you ware looking for a way to play your computer or portable device files through something with more horsepower than the built in speakers. I plan to take it up to my cabin in the Northern Woods so I can play my music while watching the sunsets and reading. It is also great combined with an Epson projector for playing movies from your computer so that you have much fuller sound to match the much larger picture.
However, if you are looking for great sounding truly portable device, you would be better off with the JBL Onbeat XTreme docking station.
Great sound from a little system--Ipad music never sounded so good!Dec 01, 2013

I initially hooked this item directly to my flat-screen TV, which has a great picture but average-to-poor sound quality. I was hoping that this system would make it easier to hear the dialogue-- and it does! The sound quality is pretty amazing, particularly when you look at the size of the two speakers-- they are so tiny you can barely see them on the shelves. The sub-woofer is a little more substantial and provides a great bass/depth of tone. My TV takes on a whole new dimension with this sound system-- I believe it rivals the excellent (but old) receiver/5-speaker system I had previously. I can even understand the dialogue on some of the British shows I like to watch but often had to replay to catch what they were saying.
It was easy to hook up to the TV (which is not a Bluetooth device) using optical cables. You can use RCA-type cables but I think the sound is better with the optical cables.
The unit operates independently of the TV sound so you have to use its remote rather than your TV's remote to adjust the volume. (I turned my TV's sound down to nothing.) Also, the remote does not have a mute button, but I found that pressing "auxiliary" served the same purpose. (And just for non-tech folks like me, it's not really wireless in the sense that, of course you have a power cord, and you also have wires from the speakers to the sub-woofer, and cable connections to the TV.)
I also connected this to my Ipad using Bluetooth-- that was actually a little more complicated, and the instructions are not particularly well-written, so if you aren't familiar with Bluetooth, don't have some tech skills, or know someone who does, you may have some trouble with this. Once you hook it up, though, the system remembers the connections so it's easy to use from that point on. And--WOW!-- great sound from my Ipad! Music sounded wonderful and full even when playing in a large living room area.
Overall I think this is an excellent system for music, movies, and TV. I assume it would be equally outstanding for games, but I haven't tried that. If you're looking for a compact system and would like better sound from your various Bluetooth or related devices, I highly recommend this. Just find a techie friend if that's not your thing!
