Yalo! That's what i thought so too, why only one size.

Hmm i just went to see about the 14days return policy, tempting but hmm its a hassle to go down all the way to jurong to return it

I think the 14 days return policy is to our advantage bah. Maybe will just pull the trigger and if itís really unsatisfactory then will return it

I have this pair of earphones but the shielding is a major dealbreaker for me. The signal breaks up when I get on a crowded bus/train. It also happens when I walk past the shopping centre RFID gantries.

Contemplating getting a pair of the Outlier Air myself. Like ckfreeblue has said, not happy just return lor. Abit more leceh only.

Same here. To be used for daily activities including jogging. Hopefully not some China OEM product like some of their low end bt speakers

Kindly be advised that with Bluetooth technology/streaming, audio/video latency maybe encountered and cannot be avoided as compared when using a wired headset. However, this lag should not be very noticeable with the Creative Outlier Air.

The Outlier Air does not support aptX-LL (aptX Low Latency) codec. The aptX-LL (aptX Low Latency) codec reduces delay and improve video/audio synchronization.

In addition, there is no audio syncing issues between the left and right earbud.

APTX or LL, doesnt matter to me, as long as there isnt noticeable lag when i watch videos
those with google home mini can try to use it as a pc speaker, the audio and video desync is at least 1-2s
Hmm....if no LL or equivalent, there's high chance of noticeable lag lei....voice come half a second after mouth open...maybe bt 5.0 has good latency performance, but have yet to hear....

Means it's just a marketing gimmick that they wrote aptx?

It matters if you want minimal lag. Aptx LL literally means low latency

Aptx is aptx
Aptx LL is aptx LL
Aptx hd is aptx hd
Aptx adaptive is aptx adaptive

Simi marketing gimmick, the only one so far is apple calling their LCD screen liquid retina display.
