Creative Airwave

Portable Wireless Speaker with NFC


Three ways to play your audio

Tap and play!

The Creative Airwave 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 via Bluetooth using the conventional method.

Integrated Aux In

You can also enjoy your music by connecting directly to the speaker via the integrated analog Aux-in connector.

Go places with your audio

12 hours of non-stop music

Party all night long on a single charge! The Creative Airwave gives you up to 12 hours1 of playtime, so don't stop the music!

Built in Lithium polymer battery

With a built-in Lithium polymer battery, your Creative Airwave 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 smartphones2. The battery can be easily charged via a standard micro USB connection.

Hear and be heard

Great sound

The Creative Airwave houses two efficient 3″ full-range drivers that produce stunning, room-filling sound despite its small 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'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 four bold colors, its unique triangular-styled construction, geometric face panel design and smooth curves make it a refreshing addition to any setting.

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

2 Currently supported on iOS devices only.


Travel + Leisure

A relative value for its power, the Airwave delivers strong bass beats and full, detailed tones.

When it comes right down to it, the Creative Airwave is a great portable unit to bring with you when you want to provide some nice ambient noise at a small gathering. It’s also handy to use for presentations in a small to medium-sized boardroom.

Customer Reviews

N. Duvall

As I am a little hard of hearing, live in a retirement community and often watch TV or play games on an Android tablet in the wee small hours I found that this was a great alternative to headphones. It now lives on my bedhead unless recharging, I use the headphone socket and it is quite loud enough for me to hear the TV clearly without using headphones or disturbing my neighbours, plus I use the Bluetooth connection to listen to Internet radio while using the tablet. Overall, a great product although you do need to remember to turn it off when you are not going to be using it for a while.

C. Martyr

Awesome product very happy with its features and the price. Simple to use and sounds great, I would definitely recommend it to others looking for a portable speaker system.
