Constantly getting disconnected out of the blue? We're here to fix that. Following the success of its predecessor, the Creative BT-W4 is here with even more to offer.
Say goodbye to connection breakage and welcome stable, high-quality Bluetooth audio with Creative BT-W4. The Creative BT-W4 is a smart Bluetooth audio transmitter that is designed to complement the digital natives of today's progressively wire-free world.
Equipped with the latest aptX Adaptive codec, Bluetooth 5.2, a convenient device-switching function, and dual voice chat options, Creative BT-W4 makes your Bluetooth experience enjoyable for entertainment, work, and more!
aptX Adaptive1 is an extremely efficient audio codec that automatically adjusts its bitrate in real-time, based on your usage and surrounding, like a crowded RF environment that is extremely common in today's digitized era.
It is closer to you than you know, like a bedroom with smartphone and smartwatch chargers, LED lights, and even hair dryers—when put together, the RF emitted by these devices will inevitably disrupt your connection quality.
With aptX Adaptive, connectivity issues are reduced to a minimum and you will always get the most optimized Bluetooth audio regardless of where you are and what you are playing. No user control or configuration required.
1 Your audio devices (i.e., Bluetooth headphones or speakers) need to support aptX Adaptive as well to enjoy the benefits of the codec.
Creative BT-W4 offers high-definition 24-bit audio at 48 kHz when streaming with aptX Adaptive. Along with Bluetooth 5.2, enjoy stable, high-quality, and reliable connection for your music, movies, and games.
It also automatically chooses the best available audio codec supported by your device, so you are guaranteed the best possible Bluetooth audio every single time.

Whether it's for your online meetings or your 9pm raid with fellow gamer friends, Creative BT-W4 offers the wireless communication option you need.
Switch from whatever you're listening to and pick up a short phone call instantly! Double press on the Bluetooth button to enter HFP mode, and use voice chat with the built-in microphone on your Bluetooth headset.
Best for: PC and Mac, where the likelihood of audio pickup, for example, keyboard typing noises from the desktop, is high.
2 In HFP mode, the Creative BT-W4 allows you to use your wireless headset for voice chat, but premium A2DP Bluetooth codecs (aptX Adaptive, aptX, and SBC) will not be available.
Plug in the bundled analog microphone to your device via its 3.5 mm jack, and use it for voice chat while streaming audio wirelessly to your Bluetooth headphones. Lead, assist, or hard-carry your team to victory as Creative BT-W4 lets you communicate your strategy across in real-time.
Best for: Gaming consoles such as PS5 and PS4, where there isn't noise interference from keyboard taps and desktop movements.
To exit HFP mode, press once on the same button.
The Creative BT-W4 is defaulted to HFP mode (wireless hands-free mode) via your Bluetooth headset. You can turn off the HFP mode3 via our Creative app to use the 3.5 mm Analog Microphone with your Nintendo Switch. Simply follow these steps:
The voice chat function for Nintendo Switch is title-dependent. You can use the microphone with games that have built-in chat function like Fortnite and Overwatch. Otherwise, it will not work for Nintendo Switch.
3Hands-free (HFP) calling / wireless voice chat will not be accessible when HFP mode is disabled. To re-enable HFP mode, follow the steps provided above, and turn it on again via the Creative app.
Do note that it is still necessary to enter HFP mode on Creative BT-W4 even when the feature is turned on via the app. Simply follow the same steps under the section ‘HFP Mode'.
We do not recommend using the Analog Microphone on PC and Mac due to the common location of the 3.5 mm AUX-in ports on these devices, which are prone to picking up external sounds like keyboard typing noise and desktop movements, all of which will affect your communication experience.
However, if you do want to use the Analog Microphone on such devices, follow these steps:
Weighing about the same as three potato chips, the Creative BT-W4 is a mammoth in functionality but an absolute lightweight in size. Its small build is comparable to a beer bottle cap, so it won't get in your way. All you need is a free USB port to get it plugged in and running, while occupying negligible space on your desk.
Switch between remembered devices, redo the Bluetooth pairing list, make EQ adjustments, and access Sound Blaster technologies via Acoustic Engine module—all available in-app!
"If you have any headphones or earbuds that support aptX Adaptive, this is the best way to make the most of this new low latency codec for a wide range of devices."
Works like a dream. Aptx Adaptive amazing tech, paired with the new Senheiser Momemtum 4. No perceivable lag or anything when gaming, watching movies.
