Creative’s new T12 stereo speakers are wireless and have compact settings. Though they lack a subwoofer, priced at Rs 5,499, the slim design of these speakers make them apt for small rooms and their black chrome finish, gives them an attractive look and feel. The build quality is sturdy on all fronts.

The knob moves smoothly, the Bluetooth button doesn’t feel cheap and the ports are also well built. While the power chord might feel a little too long, the wire that connects the right speaker to the left is just the right size.

While the power chord might feel a little too long, the wire that connects the right speaker to the left is just the right size. There’s a line-in port behind for tethering the T12 speakers to other media devices and Creative has been thoughtful by placing a headphone jack on the front. You can pair your laptops, mobile phones and PMPs to the speakers. Apple devices are not left out either and you can use the Creative BT-D5 Wireless transmitter to connect your iPod touch or iPhone to the speakers.

To test them, we played various genres of music and the result was impressive. These speakers can get loud if you crank up the volume to maximum. Of course, there is a bit of distortion with the volume maxed out, but in terms of loudness, the T12 definitely packs quite a punch.

Although the T12 doesn’t have a subwoofer, the bass response is decent. The T12 captures most of the details well and doesn’t blend the music into a hodgepodge.

Right from a crash of the cymbals to the kick of the bass, all of it can be heard. It was a little surprising to see that you can make out the soundstage of a track with these. Of course it’s not too prominent, but nevertheless it’s impressive for a bunch of two-channel speakers. On the whole, the performance is decent. speakers to other media devices and Creative has been thoughtful by placing a headphone jack on the front.
