The Creative Outlier Free Pro headphones are the affordable route into bone-conduction designs. They are comfortable to wear for long periods, and versatile enough to work with Bluetooth streams on dry land as well as storage playback for pool swims. Sacrifices have been made where sound quality is concerned though, and you'll need to spend a bit more if you want best in class sound with a similar level of versatility.
Overall a solid first attempt at a new line that gives good tunes and battery life along with protection for those who are into sports and more demanding on build quality and full of features you would expect to find on your traditional earbuds.
Yes, absolutely! However, do remember to attach the provided microphone plug to properly secure and protect the headphones' microphone from water and / or moisture; ensure that the plug is firmly sealed before going for a swim to prevent potential water damage. If water is found in the microphone, remove the headphones and shake off the excess water immediately.
Creative Outlier Free Pro supports submersion in freshwater up to a depth of 1.5m for up to 40 minutes at a time. The IPX8 rating does not include submersion in salt water or liquids with similar properties.
