Creative Airwave HD

Portable Wireless Speaker with NFC


Three ways to play your audio

Tap and play!

The Creative Airwave HD features NFC technology which allows for easy, one-touch pairing by simply tapping your NFC-enabled Bluetooth smart device on the speaker.

Pair and stream

As for your smart devices that are not NFC-enabled, you can easily pair them with the Creative Airwave HD via Bluetooth using the conventional method.

The speaker also features Creative Multipoint, which allows you to connect two1 Bluetooth stereo devices to it.

Integrated Aux-In2

If wireless is not your cup of tea, there is always an option to connect your device directly to the speaker via the integrated analog Aux-in connector.

Go places with your audio

7 hours of non-stop music

Party all night long on a single charge! The Creative Airwave HD gives you up to 7 hours3 of playtime, so don't stop the music!

Built-in Li-ion battery

With a built-in Li-ion battery, your Creative Airwave HD is truly portable and you're free to place your speaker almost anywhere you please. You can check your battery levels with voice prompts and the speaker LED also alerts you when you're low on battery. In addition, the battery level icon is displayed when paired with selected smartphones4. The battery can be easily charged via a standard micro USB connection or using the included power adapter.

Hear and be heard

Small size, huge sound

The Creative Airwave HD houses a Super Charged Amplifier which works in tandem with two premium full-range drivers. These enable the speaker to produce sound louder than speakers twice its size!

Clear voice calls

Turn your speaker into a speaker phone with the built-in concealed microphone for dialog clarity in your voice communications.

Make a statement

The Creative Airwave HD's unique design is a radical departure from the usual rectangular-shaped speakers. The chassis is constructed to minimize vibrations and the optimal 30-degree front baffle tilt projects audio directly to the listener. Available in black or red, its unconventional triangular-styled construction, geometric face panel design and smooth curves make it a refreshing addition to any setting.

1 Music playback is on a turn-by-turn basis, with one source playing at a time.

2 Aux-in takes audio priority over Bluetooth streaming audio.

3 Actual battery life will vary with use and volume settings.

4 Currently supported on iOS devices only.


Tech Digest

There's lots to like about the Creative Airwave HD. It's got a punchy sound that hits incredibly high volume levels and, in the red version at least, an interesting and eye-catching design that's portable enough to take with you to a picnic or beach party without too much strain.
