UPDATE: The pricing of Creative's WP-Series has now been revealed. Creative had announced its latest WP-Series, just recently. Although it was revealed back then that the headphones will be available for sale, September 2011 onwards, nothing on its pricing was mentioned. The Creative WP-450, which is now available in the market comes with a price tag of Rs. 7, 999, while the WP-350 is for Rs. 5, 999 and the WP-250 comes with a price tag of Rs. 3, 599.
At Creative’s recent event, along with the Ziio Tablets that made it out were a host of wireless multimedia peripherals ranging from Bluetooth enabled headsets to wireless speaker systems like the T6 Pure.
The Creative WP-300 apt-X codec enabled wireless headphones are designed to allow users to listen to high quality music from their favorite A2DP Bluetooth enabled mobile device, such as a netbook, notebook, smartphone, iPhone, iPad or touch screen tablet.
