Creative Introduces Hitz™ WP380 - High Performance Wireless Headset with ShareMe Technology

Groundbreaking Technology Enables Sharing of Audio Wirelessly Between Two ShareMe-Enabled Creative Headsets from a Single Mobile Device

SINGAPORE - 5 September 2013 - Creative Technology Ltd today announced the Creative Hitz™ WP380 wireless headset - the latest addition to the new and fun Creative Hitz series of headsets. This Bluetooth wireless headset with the all-new ShareMe technology and built-in Near Field Communication Connectivity (NFC) will debut at IFA Berlin at the Creative exhibit 110 in Hall 3.2, Messe Berlin from 6 - 11 September.

Groundbreaking Technologies in a Mainstream Headset

While the Creative Hitz WP380 belongs to the company's mainstream lineup of headsets, it contains much of the advanced technologies found in Creative's premium Aurvana lineup.

The all-new ShareMe technology allows two listeners of ShareMe-enabled Creative wireless headsets to easily link the two headsets wirelessly to a single smart device, and share their audio content simultaneously. This is ideal for simultaneous listening to music, an audio book, a podcast, or for watching a movie together during a long commute.

Engineered to produce dynamic audio reproduction with extended bass, the Creative Hitz WP380 also incorporates a dazzling array of other groundbreaking technological features that make it a perfect wireless companion for the iPod, iPad, iPhone, Android smart phones and other smart communication devices. These compelling features include Tap & Play Near Field Communication connectivity and support for advanced Bluetooth codecs. The headset's Creative Multipoint connectivity allows for simultaneous connections to two smart devices, such as to a smartphone and a tablet. With these advanced capabilities, the Creative Hitz WP380 is one of the most feature-packed wireless headsets in the market.

The headset's high performance 34mm Neodymium magnet drivers ensure exceptional audio quality while a built-in “invisible microphone” works with the ClearSpeech Engine to suppress external noise and digitally enhance speech clarity for phone calls. With its fold-flat design allowing it to fit into a bag or a purse, the Creative Hitz WP380 packs huge performance into a compact, portable on-ear design.

Striking Design

In line with Creative Hitz series' refreshingly new design theme, the Creative Hitz WP380 sports a striking finish and the same unique triangular design on each of its ear cups.
