creative woof 3

Creative’s Woof 3 is a small portable Bluetooth speaker which offers premium features at an affordable price while still maintaining a high level of audio quality. Boasting a “tea cup” design, the WOOF 3 Bluetooth speaker measure in at 2.95 x 2.55 x 2.67 inches and weighs in at 8.04 kgs making it ideal for use when you’re out in a trip.

When viewed from the top, the speaker has a chrome finished speaker grille with the Bluetooth pairing/speakerphone button in the middle for answering calls and connecting your devices. Within the grille, an LED will let you know what’s happening. Solid blue when you’re paired, flashing blue when pairing, red for low power. Nothing at all and it’s obviously off.

The base of the WOOF 3 has a white plastic finish which complements the rest of the high gloss metallic finish of the speaker. At the rear of the base are the input options, this includes the USB charging port, microSD slot, reset button and a 3.5mm input for your older non-Bluetooth devices.

The remaining buttons which are the skip forward/volume up, play/pause and the skip back/volume down are located at the right side of the base (when viewed from the front) and the power switch is at the bottom of the base.

Audio streaming is handled via Bluetooth 2.1 and uses the Bluetooth A2DP protocol designed for streaming wireless stereo sound. Beyond this, the Woof 3 also has a serviceable onboard microphone to enable hands-free calls.

The Woof 3 has an undeniably rich set of connectivity features: Bluetooth 2.1 is available for audio streaming and is also optimised for low power consumption; a microSD card slot facilitates access to external digital music files; micro USB connectivity also allows convenient charging and access to PC; and in addition, a 3.5-mm aux input is available for a cabled connection to non-Bluetooth music devices. Offering six hours of music playback and a speakerphone facility too, the Woof 3 has more than enough pathways to support a connected lifestyle.

Connecting my Android phone to the WOOF 3 only took a few seconds and once connected I had it running on full volume for about 4 hours and didn’t encounter any stutters or dropouts which is always a good thing. It packs a lot of value for money into its small size.
