Our Rating 4 stars out of 5

The Creative WP-300 headphones can connect to your mobile, tablet, laptop or other Bluetooth-enabled devices such as the Sony Walkman NWZ-A828, ridding you of the inconvenience of tangled wires.

They use Apt-X compression technology to improve sound quality, but even devices without Apt-X, such as the Walkman, sounded great. Bass levels are good without being boomy, and there's a good balance across the entire range, with surprisingly subtle high notes but, as with all Bluetooth audio, the sound still felt compressed.

The cans don't cover your ears entirely, but perch precariously on top of them, and you have to adjust carefully to balance comfort and sound quality. Bluetooth isn't 100% reliable either, and we noticed random cut-outs in sound, possibly due to interference. If you can put up with some wires, you can get better sound quality for less with a pair of Shure SRH240 headphones.
