Creative ZiiSound D5

PC Magazine
2 February 2011
  • Conclusion: At $300, the slick Creative ZiiSound D5 seems a bit overpriced, but what you miss in hi-fi audio performance, you gain in wireless capabilities.
  • Pros: Quality wireless audio. Simple, visually pleasing design. Bluetooth dongle lets the iPod becomes its own remote control. Works through walls.
  • Cons: Speakers can't handle deep bass at high volumes. Bluetooth audio signal can be weak—range must stay within roughly 30 feet. When docked, iPod still uses Bluetooth instead of direct connection for audio.

Tweak Town

  • Excerpt: Creative Labs have been amongst the biggest producers of multimedia audio equipment for the best part of the last fifteen years. Their well known presence in the industry has also seen them being several award winning products and a long line of gamer based support which has consistently grown over the years; this thanks in no small part to Creative labs' proprietary environmental audio system, EAX.

Review: Creative ZiiSound D5 bluetooth wireless speaker system

12 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Frankly speaking, the Creative ZiiSound D5 is no Harman Kardon, but its stylish looks will prove to be significant to many. Majority of iPod and iPhone bluetooth docking systems will have anticipated problems as we have briefly highlighted in this review and the ZiiSound D5 was no exception.
  • Pros: Slim, stylish design, Solid build, Clean and tidy, just a power cable, Easy to use, Bluetooth (up to 30 feet) and aux jack for audio connectivity
  • Cons: Priced relatively high end, Dock functions as power source only not music connection, Laggy bluetooth control, Distorting audio quality with deep bass

Creative ZiiSound D5 Review

Anything but iPod
9 June 2010
  • Conclusion: What I like the most about the D5 is the sound to size ratio and the versatility of being able to use different devices. For these reasons it will become a permanent resident in the corner of my living room. The solid design and quality materials is what you should expect from a $300 pair of speakers. I am rather disappointed by the lack of device options for the dock & dongle.

Creative ZiiSound D5

15 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The Zii Sound D5 from Creative is a nice, compact way of utilising your MP3 player in a more communal way. The quality is good throughout the frequency range though the bass could do with a little boost. It’s a bit expensive, but if you’re in the market for a nice looking speaker that certainly packs a punch, you could do a lot worse than the ZiiSound D5.
  • Pros: Excellent sound, Able to hook up to a variety of players, Looks good
  • Cons: Bit expensive, Bass is weaker than other frequencies

Creative ZiiSound D5

24 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Hintaseuranta.fi -palvelusta Creative ZiiSound D5:sta ei löytynyt, mutta monesta verkkokaupasta se kuitenkin löytyy ja laitteen hinta maassamme tuntuukin pyörivän arvostelun kirjoitushetkellä 250 - 280 euron välimaastossa. Jääkin kuluttajan itsensä päätettäväksi pitääkö rahalle saatavaa vastinetta riittävänä.
  • Pros: Tyylikäs muotoilu, Langattomuus, Lähettimen kantama, Ok -äänenlaatu, iPodin/iPhonen lataustelakka
  • Cons: Tarkoitettu lähinnä i-soittimille eli ei USB-liitäntää, Lyhyt stereo-stereo -kaapeli, Virtapainikkeen huono sijoittelu, Kallis äänenlaatuun nähden

Test : Creative Zii Sound D5

22 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Originally developed for use in the professional audio and broadcasting sectors, apt-X is a real-time digital audio data reduction system that compresses linear audio samples by a factor of 4:1 with no perceptible audible degradation and with negligible delay. Le Zii Sound D5 est finalement un bon produit ou du moins un bon compromis.
