About Creative Outlier Free Pro+

Bone Conduction is not a new technology, and we have also previously been familiar with similar products. It is a technology that is perhaps gaining more ground, as it sends the sound in a different way than before, which also means that you do not have to shut yourself out from the world, even if you are listening to music.

In the box we have, in addition to the headset itself, charging cable, earplugs, extra pins for the microphone and some manuals.

Creative Outlier Free Pro+ is available in blue, black and blue/orange. The headset has been covered with some silicone material, and is very flexible, both in the hoop itself, but also the small bone conductors, which can be adjusted.

Since it is bone conduction, we don't need cups to cover the ears, or anything to go into the ears. Therefore, there is also nothing about adaptation, so that they can fit or whether they cover the ears completely.

On the right side, it is possible to adjust the volume, as well as the multi-function button, which can both switch the headset on and off, but also take a call or pause the music. It is also possible to adjust whether there should be high or low latency. The charging connection is also on the right side.

The test – The sound, use and comfort

It's time to test the headset. Normally I would go through comfort, music and games, but since it is a headset that is not intended for the computer, but more for the phone, I will instead go through comfort, music and calls. To see how the headset works in everyday life, where you might have to go with the public and would use them here.

If we start with the comfort, the headset fits incredibly well. It's very comfortable to wear, and it's perhaps a headset I'd be able to wear all day without being bothered. Although the "pole" will have some air behind my head, I did not experience it getting in the way or having problems staying seated.

When we come to the sound, and look at the music, the Creative Outlier Free Pro+ is not because the headset is going to give an extreme experience with the music, but in relation to the size and the function with it, I still thought I had a good experience. The bass is very gentle.

For calls, it was also a really good experience. Even though people were sitting in their cars talking, I still had a good chance of hearing their voices and what they were saying. The same applied to those where they could easily hear me, and I also had my doubts as to whether they were aware that I was using a headset.


I have found Creative Outlier Free Pro+ at a price of 130$ on their own website.

Does your headset need an upgrade, and do you need a headset that can handle sports, or maybe you don't like in-ear headsets. Then Bone Conductors might be the way forward for you. I myself have problems with in-ears for a long time and this is without a doubt a game changer for me.

The headset has an IPX8 certification, which means it can last until you swim in the water, at a depth of around 1.5 meters for 40 minutes. However, this does not apply to salt water. It has a small pin that must be inserted into the microphone input to protect the microphone.

I thought the sound itself was acceptable for music, again I don't expect a HiFi experience from a small headset where the primary target audience is people who play sports. When it comes to calls, the headset was surprisingly good, where I had incredibly good sound in the conversations during the test.

In addition to all this, the headset also has 8 GB of built-in memory, which gives you the option of having music stored directly on the headset, and you can leave your phone at home or in the locker while you train.

I end the test by giving a score of 9 out of 10 and the "Great Product" award to Creative Outlier Free Pro+. There are many things that they have thought about when they made the headset, and among other things the built-in memory, seems like a forgotten thing when headsets are made these days. It's a small feature that can be worth its weight in gold when it's not possible to have the phone on you.


  • Overall good sound for music and calls
  • Stylish and sporty design
  • Wireless
  • Comfort
  • IPX8
