Creative Labs T12 overview

  • 1Description

If you're looking for a versatile, compact speaker setup for your computer, then check out the Inspire T12 Bluetooth Wireless 2.0 Speaker System from Creative Labs. This system features two glossy, black speakers that each have one full-range driver as well as Creative Lab's BassFlex technology. That technology ensures a solid bass sound without the clutter of a subwoofer.

Perfect for streaming music and eliminating unsightly wires, this system allows you to connect your Bluetooth-enabled desktop, laptop, iPad, iPod, or handheld device within 10 meters. In so doing, the set delivers superior Bluetooth stereo audio by utilizing the apt-X audio codec and the same Bluetooth expertise that has won Creative Labs the Bluetooth Special Interest Group "Best of CES 2010" award for their Inspire S2 Wireless 2.1 speakers.

Even if you don't have a Bluetooth-enabled device, Creative Labs offers you a few other options. You can purchase one of their Bluetooth transmitters that can wirelessly connect your PC or iPod to the speakers, or, instead, you can use the 3.5 mm auxiliary input jack. Simply connect a 3.5 mm cable from the headphone jack of your PC or iPod to the speakers' auxiliary jack and you're ready to go. Beyond connectivity, the set also includes a headphone jack and built-in volume control for added versatility. All told, this sleek, smart speaker system delivers great sound for your Bluetooth and non-Bluetooth devices in a small, clutter-free setup.

    Creative Labs T12 reviews

    Inspire T12 Bluetooth Wireless 2.0 Speaker System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome The product is extremely easy to set up and use. It automatically connects to the Bluetooth device and if it doesn't you just press a button and it is all taken care of. The sound quality is also really good: it is very clear. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to get rid of some wires wires while still getting great sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific sound It is hard to find speaker with the full 20 to 20,000 Hz range such a compact size. These do that and do it well. I like speakers with neutral sound quality - so many units today are either very strong on treble of very boomy in the base. These are a great balance. sound volume is plenty to fill our 16 x 20 office without distortion. I running these on a Mac Pro using the bluetooth link. Occasionally the connection will drop, but I have the same problem with the bluetooth mouse and keyboard. All in all, great sound for an attractive price, and the units are attractively styled and unobtrusive on my desk.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance...great price! I connected the system by bluetooth to a home computer on a desk. Sitting about 2ft. away the T12's sound great. I was a musician for years and studied audio production and recording too. For such a small set of speakers, these have extraordinary sound range including a strong low-end response. Having mixed with other near-field speakers, these lack a bit in the mid-range frequencies. Listening from the rear (where Creative Labs has positioned a vertical speaker for the mid to low-range with a super-low bass response for its size,) much of the mid-range is present. I don't hear some of that from the front listening position. Again, for the price...these are incredible!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bluetooth speakers I bought these speakers specifically to test the bluetooth capabilities. They connect very easily to various devices and it is pretty straight forward to switch between iPhone to iPad, for instance. Simply close one device connection, press the button on the speaker to reset, then turn on bluetooth for another device. The sound is clear, not that powerful, the bass reflex on the back is somewhat helpful when placed near a wall. Useful for portability and convenience, will not deliver a powerful sound but does provide clarity and convenience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I'm very impressed with the sound that these speakers produce. The bass is rich and deep while the treble has nice highs. The sound is not flat at all like some other desktop speakers I've owned. They are very easy to set-up and work perfectly with my Mac Book Pro. The set-up takes a few seconds and to switch to my iPhone the set-up is just as simple. You hold down the button on the front of the speaker for a few seconds and the green light starts flashing blue which means the speakers are discoverable to any bluetooth device. I highly recommend these speakers to anyone who wants a great sounding pair of speakers that are easy to set-up and are very affordable. They even sound better than my Bose desktop speakers which is saying something!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for great price When looking for some speakers for my freelance video editing I bought these hoping the reviews would be correct. I have been very happy with these speakers. They are small in size but give off great sound. The Bluetooth is easy to link. However for video editing their was a delay so I use the 1/4 jack. Also they look good on my desk.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from These speakers rock! These speakers were so easy to setup I had time for more music and enjoyment! Connected via bluetooth from my new desktop pc. Amazing sound for computer speakers. I love the design, very sleek and masculine. I have not found anything to dislike about them. I would recommend to friends.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speakers Bought these speakers for my son's computer because of the bluetooth to avoid all the wires. I also bought a separate bluetooth USB device to add bluetooth to my son's desktop. They paired with no problem. Great sound from these small speakers. Bluetooth range is good. Great product. If your desktop does not have bluetooth connectivity, B&H has a USB device that adds bluetooth to your desktop.
