On first sight these speakers appear to be standard 2. 1 computer speakers, but they do have some differentiating features:- audiophile grade drivers. These do sound good to me though the woofer often overwhelms the small desk tweeters. The tweeters have a nice shiny steel finish on top so are easy to keep dust free and you can see the speaker through the thin fabric shield. Importantly they encourage you to listen to your music collection. It’s only a cubic foot in size but has 3 speakers and can output a good volume. But i’m not convinced it really blends seamlessly with the tweeters. Whatever level you set it tends to dominate the mix. Though the blurb describes it as tight, this isn’t the first word that springs to mind for me.
These are great speakers base is really good this is at half way, satellite speakers are really good small and powerful as well clarity is superb no feedback great music sound and when watching a movie this is using the optical socket, i use this for my tv and computer not used bluetooth or nfc as yet and the price as i bought this through amazon warehouse @ £146 really good value, i would recommend this system.
This ststem is fantastic, it looks nice, very tidy. Speakers small and only complaint is no obvious way to wall attach. Sub woofer meaty, big but not terribly large, all seems well designed. Music sounds good, a little bass heavy at times but sub can be adjusted, the sounds of various genres crisp or deep or mellow, it can handle well across different styles. Really enjoyable, not perfect, but good quality and impressive sound.

Comments from buyers
“Amazing sound for a very low price tag
, THE BEST sounding speakers out there
, these are great speakers base is really good this is at half
I bought this product because i had read that this had amazing sound for a reasonable price, and i wanted a 2 column + 1 woofer setup that had bluetooth, to listen mostly to music, and now and then a movie. I must say that i was immediately amazed from the near perfect quality that came out from this 2. The bass packs quite a punch but in the correct amount. The two small speakers are the stars in this package. They are just slightly bigger than bose’s satellites, they feel sturdy and well built, and use material that fell great on touch. The good:- pairing devices is a no brainer, with the nfc- you have optical input- bluetooth has great range and i cant detected any artifactsthe bad:- it uses a round dial for controlling sound and switching devices, i must say i’m not a fan of this, the sound nob doesn’t give you a pleasant feel and switching around devices is odd and not ergonomic, also it has a very very short cable- when the bluetooth is paired you get a beeping sound, as you should, but if you have been previously listening to music quite loud, the beeping sound will be so loud you could have a heart attackthe ugly:- the remote couldn’t be any worst. Its cheap, feels small and empty, and immediately i had problems with it. I don’t know if its the battery (it uses a cr2032 battery) that as a bad connection, but it works like an old t v remote that has a dead battery, i just keep beating on it for it to work.
Let me say that if you want 2. 1 then these are all you will needbasshead that’s what’s i am wow i use them on my pc movies games music it does the loti don’t really white reviews often but i had to for thesefantatic product.
The t4’s certainly look impressive on unboxing. The sub is considerably heavier then others i’ve owned of a similar size which indicates there’s a decent amplification unit built inside. The satellite speakers look good and have an anti-slip foam covering on the base. They were fairly straight forward to set up and the blue tooth connected to both my s4 and ipad without issue. Several weeks before the t4’s arrived i purchased a set of harmon kardon wireless soundsticks (which are of similar price to the t4’s) so i had something to make comparisons against. I’ve been testing the t4 system for just over 2 weeks now. Initially i played back music via blue tooth, then i wired them to an optical lead from my tv. Initially i thought the speakers on default setting came over as far too tinny on treble, even with a high bass setting on the sub. After some experimenting i managed to use the equaliser on both my phone and laptop to tweak and fine tune the sound to my preference.
Edit 2 – update 1/3/14i have since been in contact with the creative team, and their customer support has been excellent. With frequent communications, i have received a new pair of speakers after i was unable to install a patch (as i use a mac, not windows). Most helpful, and the volume control issue is now fixed. 4* because the bluetooth distance still remains an issue. Edit – update 3/2/14since writing my first review, i have noticed the volume control on the bluetooth port is not very sensitive, and will rapidly change the volume from one extreme of volume to the other with the smallest touch. Hence, i have knocked a star off of this review. Originalon opening the creative t4 2. 1 speakers i was initially impressed by the weight of the sub woofer and the smart look of the speakers. After some initial confusion on setting the speakers up (the speaker ports on the sub woofer aren’t excellent – they don’t fit very tightly into the socket, and require twisting, so i spent some time convincing myself these were the actual sockets), i was finally ready to test the speakers. I have never had speakers before, apart from those which are in built into my laptop, so my experience is limited.
This is very good speaker system if a little pricey. The sound is good though and the bluetooth connection very useful. The terms ‘wireless’ put in big letters on the box may be a little deceiving though- the speakers are wired into the woofer which runs off the mains, and the wireless aspect is only relevant to bluetooth enabled appliances. Whatever, still a good quality system to run your tv,pc or laptop off as well as ipods etc remotely.
These are the first wireless surround sound speakers that i have tried out and i specifically chose creative as i have used other products by them and have always found them to be solid and well made. I have this set connected to my tv with the weighty subwoofer below the tv and the little satellite speakers on either side. I have tried out the bluetooth connection with my phone and it work perfectly and was very easy to set up, although i don’t really intend to use that function much. The most important factor to me in getting this system was to enhance my television watching experience and these speakers certainly do that. They offer a rich, balanced but not overwhelming sound that really fills the room, in my opinion. From a price comparison point of view they do seem slightly more expensive than other comparable systems though but i am very happy with them all the same.
Absolutely love these speakers, sound quality is superb and bass is rich and just right. I have to say though that if your pc or whatever you are using these with had s/pdifdigital output then make sure you use it, as the difference between analog and digital is noticeable (at least it was for me on my asus laptop). Sound is much clearer through digital and really makes a difference. Very happy all round with these speakers.
1 surround sound wireless bluetooth speaker set’ is a set of high fidelity speakers ideally to be used with your tv/entertainment setup. However, having bluetooth capabilities, once set-up it’s an absolute doddle to link up any bluetooth device you have to the speakers (such as a phone, laptop etc) and then play your music through the speakers. As an audio set-up for our tv entertainment system, i have to say that the system not only met our expectations, but with the quality of the sound and the range in notes that the speakers can reproduce – the system has gone further and totally exceeded all of our expectations. With the adjustable bass knob set at the midway point, the depth in bass is astonishing. Crank that bad-boy up and you won’t know what hit you. You know when you go to the cinema and the bass seems to reverberate through your bones when some catastrophic explosions or the like are tearing things up – well, expect the same monumentally crippling levels of bass, obtained in your very own front room. Design-wise, the speaker set-up won’t necessarily fit the overall layout of everyone’s entertainment system or indeed the design of your room. Firstly, the slam subwoofer is reasonably hefty (21 x 21. 5 x 28cm), and in our room the only viable option which would keep my wife happy with the new speakers, was to have this unit located behind the tv itself (see included video).
* edited review *my initial review of the t4 wireless system was somewhat less than enthusiastic, as the volume control was faulty and the bottom fell off one of the speakers. Creative kindly contacted me and offered to send a replacement, which i recieved a few weeks ago. The new production line kit resolved the issues i had, so here is the edited review. I’m a bit of an audiophile, and i needed a setup to give my pc setup a bit more oomph, so i jumped on this when it came up. It’s certainly a tidy looking system, although the box proclaims ‘wireless speakers’ on the front when the speakers are wired, and the only wireless aspect is connecting a bluetooth device. Slightly misleading i think, but hey. So, the system has some very funky features. The bluetooth reciever also doubles as a volume control, channel switch and nfc tag. The bluetooth functionality works like a charm, and i had no problems connecting my galaxy s3 to it. Turning on nfc on my phone also means that i can touch the phone to the reciever and it automatically sets bluetooth input on the amp, and connects my phone, which is totally awesome, so plus marks for that.
Fantastic set of speakers, best value around.
Great sound, loud enough+++ good quality.
Ever since i bought my first flat screen tv – and i am a late adopter in most things electronic, preferring to buy mature technology – it has been impressed upon me by salespeople that the speakers in such tvs, being wafer thin themselves, do not deliver high fidelity sound. I’d been on the lookout for a soundbar or similar audio enhancement for some time, so it was a delight to be able to try out this creative labs device courtesy of vine. It was reasonably – not very – easy to connect everything up. I did have some difficulty getting the high frequency speakers to work, but after a few minutes i figured it out. I mention that now, however, because having turned it on again after a couple of weeks they’re not working, and in the absence of the right part of the multi-part manual that is provided, i haven’t been able to get them to work. That’s not necessarily a complete disaster, however, as it works pretty well when you just put the bass on with the speakers in the tv providing the treble register sound. Why, you might ask, have we not been using it every day?. My wife says that she finds the bass note unpleasant, and prefers the tv’s sound ‘as it comes’. She can tell the difference better than i – i would turn on the bass unit, and soon forget about it, but as soon as she came into the room she’d know that it was on and say that she didn’t like it.
I got this, multi-use system, to both improve the sound from my tv and to play music with a better quality in my living room, than the portable speakers i use, and in general i’m quite pleased with it. Given that there is a convergence of technologies between television/film, listening to music, telephony and computing (often on one device), it seems right to have a system that is designed to exploit as much of this as possible, without being tailored to just one. The system comprises a main unit with which the other parts connect and in which the sub-woofer is housed, plus two satellite speakers, a separate control unit and remote control. The main unit is a bulky affair and really needs siting on the floor, or somewhere with at least a good 30+ cm depth to allow for cabling at the rear. The satellites are dinky, about the size of rubik’s cubes and come attached to little stands, which can be replaced with taller versions if need be. The control unit allows you to control volume, select audio source (auxiliary or digital), switch on bluetooth, connect headphones through the standard 2. 5 mm jack or connect using nfc. The only thing you can’t alter with the control unit is the bass volume, which is controlled with a knob situated on the back of the main unit; this does mean that if you want to change the volume of the bass regularly, you’d better not make the back of the unit too hard to reach. It must be noted that the ‘wireless’ claim on the box, only refers to the ability to connect a device via bluetooth. The satellite speakers are still wired to the main unit, and unless your tv has bluetooth, you will still need to connect it using the provided cable, or using an optical cable (not included) if your tv has that feature.
These easily outperform so-called high-quality audio setups. These are great for listening to music. The clarity is amazing, so is the subwoofer, which performs fantastically, it handless jazz and subtle low tones superbly and can also throw some serious thumps when blasting popular music. I am not an audiophile, but this easily beats any bose sound system i have heard. The only downside is the remote which is fiddly and falls apart. Overall this was a great buy 4 years ago and i will be getting another set of these soon for my other bedroom.
My daughter is so happy, we gave it to her with a blu-ray player for christmas, the bluetooth option is also great so she can connect here ipods and things. The only thing is now, we struggle to hear the tv down stairs 🙂 oh, well she is impressed .
