Creative has just announced that its new Outlier Gold true wireless headphone will be officially launching in Singapore at CEE 2019.

The company calls the Outlier Gold a "superboosted version" of the Outlier Air. To that end, the Outlier Gold will be the company's first headphone to support Software Super X-Fi.

What this means is that owners of the Outlier Gold will be able to enjoy the benefits of Super X-Fi on local music files using the Super X-Fi app on their mobile devices.

Before you get too excited, software Super X-Fi will only work on local files and not streaming content like YouTube, Spotify or Apple Music. If you want to enjoy Super X-Fi on all content, then you need to get the SXFI Air or SXFI Amp.

For the uninitiated, Super X-Fi is a technology that aims to recreate the sensation of listening to speakers on headphones through a mix of hardware, software, and advanced digital sound processing. For more information, read our initial coverage here.

Back to the Outlier Gold. The Outlier Gold is distinguishable by its gold accents and it even features a charging case with a gold exterior.

A single charge is good for 14 hours of playback. Together with the battery pack, users can get a total of 39 hours of playback. That, according to Creative, is good for about an entire month of commute.

That aside, the Outlier Gold supports Bluetooth 5.0 and also AAC and aptX codecs. This means it'll play well with both Android and iOS devices - the latter relies on AAC for high-quality Bluetooth audio.

It's also IPX5 water resistant. In other words, it's sweatproof.

The Creative Outlier Gold is priced at S$139 and will be available this Thursday (23 May) at CEE 2019.
