Creative MUVO 1c Portable Bluetooth Speaker – : Hi-Fi tech has moved up a gear with this

I’ve had a couple of small bluetooth speakers in the past, one good and one pretty poor. I tend to listen to podcasts quite a bit and the good ones are much better than most devices internal speakers. This one is compact and feels better than some of the very plasticy ones that i’ve seen and one i’ve tried. A short usb cable is included for charging the device. No charger but that is unlikely to be a problem these days as most people have probably got one somewhere. The instructions are mainly picture illustration type ones but they are fairly clear. I paired this speaker with both a phone and a tablet with no problem. I have not tried it as a wired connection yet. The controls did take me a little while to get the hang of but they were ok after i’d played around for a while. The sound quality was pretty good to my way of thinking.

Been interesting to see how portable speakers have progressed – from awful usb wired ones that sounded like music being played through a baked bean tin to something like this – it’s just amazing for its size. About the size of a compact camera or a large bar of soap – just about possible to slip into pocket. The sound output though is powerful. More than good enough for using outside or in a room or similar – of course there are better speakers, but not i’m aware of this size and for less than £20. Instructions were not overly intuitive but combine them with pushing buttons and it becomes clearer. Bluetooth is simple as can be – turn on, pair and go. It’s the other settings that are a little less clear. It’s a mono output but supports being paired with another it to give stereo. Two of these together is a pretty powerful output. Max volume on my iphone didn’t lead to any distortion or loss of music quality.

For all the size of it, this is a punchy little bluetooth speaker. I have a couple of other ones in the same price ballpark and was fairly happy with them, until i put this one alongside them. This one has far better sound – clearer, and more bass too. It was a breeze to set up and connects easily with audible tones to let you know its switched on, and when it connects. Performs well at louder volumes – doesn’t distort. Small enough to carry easily, big enough to fill a room. Splashproof too – so you don’t have to worry about it getting wet.

Fantastic little speaker amazing sound lovely bass and nice crisp treble. I bought 2 from the warehouse and paired them now i have true bluetooth stereo ,highhly recommended.

  • fantastic
  • Absolutely incredible!
  • Awesome little speaker- tiny but mighty

Creative MUVO 1c Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Bluetooth support for effortless connection ( Bluetooth version 4.2 )
  • Big sound from a small package – from the professionally tuned driver, and built-in passive radiator.
  • Splash proof for the wildest storms or pool-parties
  • Light and portable, you could just pick it up and get going on your adventures. Weighs in at a modest 158g (5,57 oz.).
  • Speakerphone function when connected with your smartphone via Bluetooth

I must admit that when this parcel arrived, i wondered if i had been sent the right productit is tiny. The unit itself measures only 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches (9 x 6. It looks great with the creative logo on the speaker grill and feels really well made and finished. Powering up and pairing was simple, and then came the big surprisesound is nothing short of astonishing. I’ve reviewed quite a few bluetoth speakers and this quite simply blew me away. For a unit of this size i havent seen anything that comes remotely close in terms of sound volume or clarity. Of particular note is that this tiny unit actually produces genuine bass.There is what think is a passive bass radiator on the rear and this quite literally thumps and vibrates with sound.

I am thrilled with this little speaker. Bluetooth connection is simple and fast, with a helpful sound to denote connection and disconnection. It can maintain this over a considerable distance. The sound quality is superb, far superior to others i have. It is packaged quite stylishly and looks sleek and minimalist. Very impressive little thing and well worth the money.

I confess that this is the first bluetooth paired speaker that i have owned or used and i have to say that, admittedly without any comparator, this is a great speaker, produces great sound quality and fits in a pocket (it is about the size of a small walkman, actually smaller, perhaps the size of a larger bath bar of soap) and looks very nice too. As other reviewers have indicated it may have been nice for it to have been supplied with some sort of a lanyard, much like was supplied with some small pocket radios back in the day or with some mobile phones or even the nunchuck for a nintendo wii. Most important for me this was pretty intuitive to operate, there is an instructional print on the box but when you switch it on (there is a usb cable supplied to charge up the speaker), it lights up and speaks the message “ready to pair” and you bring the phone or other device into its range, which is pretty good (no setting it next to it or tapping it against it repeatedly until it some how jumps the connection at last, as i have found can be the case sometimes with my older samsung mobile and my fit bit), and it chimes and confirms pairing. From there there the volume controls work fine, the sound is bassy, although the songs are not faint or hard to hear. As someone who has on occasion looked at some of the more innovative tech and said to myself, hmm, that would be nice but i dont want to spend all the time it is no doubt going to take setting it all up and getting it all operational i can recommend this as a very nice and quick piece of tech to get set up and begin using. Besides the bluetooth compatibility there is a jack for headphones which could be used with older ipods (i own an old ipod classic and dont actually want to own any of the more recent ipods as i like the design, its not old enough to be retro but it is a classic design by now) or non-bluetooth devices (a digital radio maybe?).

I’ve got a £200 audio pro t3 bluetooth speaker gathering dust because i use this so much. It’s lightweight and genuinely tiny (palm size, literally) and hence totally portable. Portability normally comes as a trade off against quality but this honestly packs (surprisingly) fantastic sound, with genuinely wallop. Bass isn’t as rich as the t3 or equiv. But it’s no slouch and certainly not tinny sounding. Actually preferable to the t3 for podcasts, spoken word stuff and perfectly fine for music. Splashproof to boot- so i use it in the bathroom when i’m showering and in the garden. Robustly constructed- i’ve dropped it loads without event. Charges via micro usb and a charge tends to get me 4-6 hours. Simpler to use than the higher spec 2c as well- if all you want to do is play from your phone via bluetooth, this is the one to get.

It’s “a belter” and really belies it small size in terms of performance. 99 at the date of review (10th january 2017) i am delighted with this compact, yet powerful weatherproof speaker – it is splashproof rather than waterproof like an “ultimate ears” speaker. The speaker, a set of instructions and a usb cable. The speaker came with between 25-50% charge, which is displayed via a coloured led, which changes colour depending on the amount of charge held. The instructions are in diagramatic format (which i hate) but due to the nature of the product and the multi-lingual market place, were easy enough to follow. Set up to android, ios and fire os, via bluetooth was simple and straightforward and amazon music was soon streaming through – what i particularly like about this item is the fact that you can connect to additional creative speakers if you wish to have more than one playing simultaneously (you get a stereo effect with one occupying right and the other left) – which improves the playback and in some situations, would be ideal for a larger room. I have alluded to the fact that the speaker is splash proof/weatherproof and the seals are very similar to my much more robust, but ten times more expensive “ultimate ears”. It is certainly up to being left outside in a shower.

I have had a few portable speakers over the years and this has to be one of the better ones. Small and compact this puts out a surprising amount of volume. It sounds clear and rich whether listening to music or spoken word podcasts. It is easy to use and simple to connect to you device and setup and the buttons on top are well crafted and easy to figure out. The covering give good protection against any splashes it might receive to this is perfect to take out with you. A very good portable speaker.

It may be small, but it packs a punch. I was a little worried when this small bluetooth speaker arrived that it would a) not be very loud and b) sound a bit rubbish. I’ve used it for a range of purposes since. It sounds great listening to music, with a surprisingly good bass end. It’s perfect for watching films on your laptop too. Connection to devices is easy and reliable and battery life is very good. Comes with a charger, but no plug.

Pairs up in seconds and away we go. What a belting little unit, what a nice, nice, nice bass response for a speaker this size. It looks cool too,with the logo across the front it almost looks like a mini stack, if you stand some airfix soldiers in front to be the band it’s like a mini rock gig from the 70’s. Seriously for it’s size the sound is fantastic, it throws out a surprisingly weighty bass from the rear facing bass radiator and the sound fills a small room really well and a reasonably sized room nicely. There is a light on top that shows how much charge is left as well so you can judge whether it needs topping up with juice. The unit comes with a charging cable and that’s it – in the instructions it shows how to attach a small carrying strap/lanyard to it but if it should come with one mine didn’t. The charging and the mini input jack ports are concealed behind a rubber strip and the unit has rubbed strips on the bottom for grip.

You don’t fully realise how small and the cute the creative muvo 1c is until you unbox it. It really is a compact little unit, to the point where i did wonder if something this size would suffer from ‘tinny’ sound. So i paired it up via bluetooth with my iphone, which took seconds, and was very relieved when i heard the quality of the sound, it was very full and clear with a surprising amount of bass. This is perfect for when on holiday for listening round the pool or on the beach, and the water-resistant design means it can handle being splashed with water from time to time, so overall this is an excellent bluetooth speaker.

The box arrives well packed in a strong cardboard box, recyclable of course. A pictograph of instructions is included and a short usb charging cable. The sound box is about the size of a bar of soap, it is indeed small. The ‘creative’ logo on the front is white and very noticeable. Turning the box on with one key, lit up an led and it talks to you, “ready to pair”. I grabbed my iphone, went into bluetooth and there it was, one click and the box also chimes and confirms it is paired. Easiest bluetooth pairing i have ever done. Next i played bryan ferry, ‘lets live together’ as it was cued. The sound has bass, there is a flexible panel on the rear that vibrates and adds the bass effect, quite impressive.

This is just amazinggenuinely great sound qualitybalanced punchy base and treble rich speakerreally incredible for the price.

The compactness of this unit belies the volume and quality of this unit, which is bigger than its small packaging might otherwise suggest. Clear sound, i use this mainly for the spoken word and watching youtube channels on my phone. With music, i get generally good reproduction but it can sound a little compressed at times. That said it is easy listening on the move and the 6 hours claimed battery life is feasible. Overall i think this to be a good offer at this price point and have no qualms in recommending it.

Good quality little speaker. Surprising for something so small. It’s really easy to use and the sound quality is much better than expected.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar Pro Portable Speaker – Well constructed item with great sound.

So i have got purchased a number of bluetooth speakers and also some airplay only bose ones. For starters i wish i had gone for bluetooth rather than airplay from a connectivity point of view. At the time bluetooth was a bit ropey and i was everything apple. What a mistake now i am still apple but my kids are android so they cannot use airplay speakers. I have not used the mic functionality on this but it looks interesting. From a music perspective the audio quality is really good comparable to my bose soundlink 20 and far superior to my anker (although admittedly they are in a much a lower price category and are still great value for money). I was expecting it to be really bassy but infact the mid range comes through really clearly. Of course when my daughter has dance music it can still handle that really well but the vocals are crystal clear. Battery life is really good and we have had it in the backgarden on a relatively low volume for 5 hours without any issue.

Looks and feels rather stylish. Quite compact and reassuringly hefty. Very easy to set up and use. It synched with all my mobile devices easily and quickly. Does have a lot of features, perhaps too many for some. I personally won’t use most of them. However i found it rather too bassy and on occasions the bass was a little too loud and overbearing.

Big sound from such a small box. It arrives well packages and out of the box looks stylish. It has a charger with a uk plug but you can charge it via usb too. It has the size and weight of a slightly flattened brick. It has all manner of ways of connecting but bluetooth will likely be the most used. Using an iphone and ipad pro bt connection was simple and quick and sound good. It will work with a smart phone as a speakerphone/mic. You can insert a microsd card into the slot to either record your phone calls to or play music from since it has an inbuilt mp3 player. There are many more features like sound profiles and using it as a personal pa systerm, a sleep function. Here are the specifications for the Creative Sound Blaster Roar Pro Portable Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Integrated MP3 player, microSD and record function
  • 5 driver system with 2 high-frequency drivers
  • 6000mAh Li-ion battery that lasts up to 10 hours
  • Audio-Codecs: aptX Low Latency, aptX and AAC
  • 3 preset audio profiles

I have primarily used the sound blaster as a replacement for desktop computer speakers. It is a solid piece of equipment and quite heavy. I leave it permanently connected to the mains, but have used it on battery as a portable item. It connects easily via bluetooth , though when on the desktop it is connected by 3.

There are many bluetooth speakers out there, offering many different features, but this is one of the best i’ve used. From setup to sound quality, and from features to ease of use, the creative sound blaster roar pro is a winner. The roar pro is about the size of a brick, and looks very discreet, with the most of the top and front surface area given over to the speaker grille, with just a small company logo on the front, and five buttons on the top. The roar pro offers multiple ways to play audio, including bluetooth, aux in, usb, micro sd and nfc. I undertook my testing of this device using the bluetooth and aux in options. Bluetooth setup was pain-free – i find that the rule with initial bluetooth setup is always to read the relevant part of the manual. I did so with the roar pro was up and running in less than a minute. So, the roar pro offers good looks and easy setup, but what about the sound quality?. My disclaimer is that i am not an audiophile, but i enjoy rock, pop and classical music and have listened using many types of speaker and headphones over the years. Put simply, i believe that the roar pro offers excellent sound quality for music and spoken word, relative to the small size of the speaker and its genuine portability.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • An impressive, quality portable speaker
  • as good as the roar2
  • Well constructed item with great sound.

I have owned several previous models of creative’s roar speaker range from the original roar, to the more improved roar 2 which i still own to this day. To be honest, i was a little baffled to why they’ve seemed to have gone back in time with the roar pro; it’s the same weight and size as the original roar, however has a black finish rather than silver and a couple of spec improvements. I remember when the roar 2 came out, creative boasted the more sleek design which improved in being smaller in size and weight whilst still outputting quality audio and they were right to boast about it, there was clearly a quality boost with a more refined design. In comparison from the roar pro and the roar 2; the only difference i can see on the spec sheet is that it can handle one more additional codec which is ‘aptx-ll’ in addition to the previous ‘aac’, ‘aptx’ & ‘sbc’, plus the battery has been improved to delivery 10 hours on a full charge than the previous 8; further more, if you have more than one roar pro, apparently you can link one to be a designated right speaker and the other a left. Another thing to add, this one is compatible with the creative iroar mic wireless voice projector with emotion amplifier which basically turns the roar pro into your own pa system, but at an extra cost of course. I have had the roar pro & roar 2 side by side and both on full power (when the speakers drop to low battery, the volume and performance is affected) and i honestly couldn’t tell the difference in sound quality between them; both provided decent loud volume, clear audio and a blimmin’ good kick of bass, especially when the terabass mode was activated. With the minor spec improvements, increase in size and weight, why oh why would anyone want to splash out an extra £50-£70 for the roar pro (£167 at the time of review on amazon & £150 on creative’s official website), when the roar 2 is available for £99?. Just doesn’t make sense to me. If i hadn’t tested any of the previous models i would have given it a higher rating as it is a very good speaker, however as i have, it’s too hard not to compare, especially when there is such price difference and there really isn’t enough improvement to warrant the much higher price tag; just seems like a but like a marketing ploy if you ask me. Overall this is a good speaker, it’s just there is a better alternative available at a better price from the same manufacture.

This is a review of the creative soundblaster roar pro portable bluetooth speaker. This is quite a a compact but has and impressive array of speakers and a lot of features. It is packaged in a branded box and supplied with; a power adaptor with uk, us and eu plugs, a micro usb to usb cable and instructions. The build quality looks to be excellent with including metal grills and a rubberised soft feel back. There are a lot of buttons and controls with most being on the back and commonly used ones on the top. The unit has five speakers in all including the sub-woofer and has two amplifiers with one optimised for lower frequencies and the other for higher frequencies. You can power the speaker either using the mains adaptor or via the micro usb to usb cable supplied using a multi or phone charger. It has a built in rechargeable battery which is claimed to last 10 hours. This is obviously dependant on use and volume but does not feel too far from the truth. This can also charge phones and other mobile devices via the usb output socket which is a useful feature.

Ordered this speaker to replace my old big jambox by jawbone. This speaker is definitely worth the money, has some amazing bass levels(can be adjusted on the speaker) and has so serious volume and can easily fill a house. Also has a handy battery in so you can charge your phone at the same time. Amazing little speaker and definitely worth the money.

A couple of years ago i got one of the original creative soundblaster roar speakers and was very impressed with it and its performance and it’s been sitting on my desk beneath my imac (and used regularly) ever since. So i was especially interested to try this newer pro version and see if it’s still one of the best wireless speakers available at its price. The first thing that strikes you, if you own the original model, is that this pro version shares the same chassis and is exactly the same size and basic design as the original model – so if you have a carry-case for the original it should fit this one too. There are a few differences with the onboard features and controls, but the basic design is the same. It’s a very solid-feeling unit, brick-solid actually with mostly metal construction that’s partially wrapped in silicon and there’s no creaky or squeaky sounds as you handle it, everything feels very securely and solidly put together. It’s small enough to be easily portable but you’ll be aware it’s in your backpack, it’s not the most lightweight unit. The roar starts quickly with a short musical stab sound and then it’s ready to play from your choice of 4 sources – you can use bluetooth (with an nfc connection option), analogue line-in, usb or you can play mp3’s directly from a microsd card inserted into the slot on the back. The bluetooth feature includes support for the aptx codec which can significantly improve the audio quality but only works if you have an aptx-compatible device (most aren’t). If you connect the roar to your pc or mac using a usb cable it works as a standard usb-audio device, drawing the power it needs over usb too so you only need to connect a single cable. Your roar can also declare complete independence and carry its own music around stored on a microsd card (fat/fat32 format up to 32gb) inserted into the back of the unit.

The market for larger portable bluetooth speakers like this one is getting crowded. I think bose may have been first, but they have strong competition from some of the more serious audio manufacturers like loewe and b&w, and this is creative’s entry into that market. It’s about the same size as a hardback novel, and reassuringly heavy. There is a nice rubberised finish over much of the box, and it looks attractive enough, with a row of buttons on the top and a lot of minor controls and connectors hidden around the back. A mains charger, usb cable and auxiliary audio cable are included in the box. It is pretty feature-rich – it supports the apt-x codec and aac audio, which should improve quality. It has a microsd card slot onto which you can load mp£ and wma files to play directly on the speaker (although the playback controls are restricted to play and track skip – there’s no way to browse for particular songs). There are various options for tuning the sound – you can select one of three modes from ‘warm’, ‘neutral’ and ‘energetic’; there is a ‘tera bass’ function which is designed to improve bass response at low volumes, and a ‘roar’ function which is very similar to the loudness button on a 70’s era hi-fi amplifier. You can also use the inbuilt battery (claimed to be good for 10 hours playback) to recharge your phone via usb. Pairing with my iphone was easy – hold down the bluetooth button to make the speaker discoverable, look for it in bluetooth on the iphone, hit connect and you’re done.

I already use jbl products, but for some reason my wife’s iphone won’t pair with them – possibly because they are already paired with mine. It seemed sensible therefore to get an entirely different bluetooth speaker which hopefully would work with her phone and which i would not mess about with by pairing with my phone. – hence the addition of the soundblaster pro portable. Although it looks like a bit of a brick in the pictures, in reality it is quite unaggressive, being about the size of a thick paperback – though rather heavier. It paired first time, and after charging it up, my wife enjoyed putting it through its paces. The sound quality is really good, and does not distort even when the volume is very high. She also loved the roar button to boost the bass for some of her more headbanging music. The ability to play while charging is also good – not all speakers can do this, apparently. She also liked that she could charge her phone from her soundblaster while i’m charging mine from a jbl. The build quality is very high, so it should also last a long time.

This speaker rocks, one of the must have product.

In my experience, creative labs have always produced quality sound cards and accessories for the pc, and although i haven’t used any of their products for a long time, i was particularly interested to explore their current range, when looking for a bluetooth portable speaker to use with my computer. I’m very impressed with the sound quality of this small device, which is not only a portable speaker but also an external sound card when connected to a pc. This allows a single usb cable to provide power and data connections and the use of sound blaster control panel software (when connected to a pc) for personal choice of equaliser settings, including virtual surround sound, which i prefer. Although i use this with my pc all the time, i’m pleased to have the added functionality of a ‘stand alone’ portable speaker, with a rechargeable li-on battery, that can play music from mobile devices via bluetooth. The unit is very solidly built and doesn’t rattle or vibrate, even on higher sound settings, and setting the device up for use was very easy and straightforward.

In my job, i give plenty of presentations every week (these often include video and audio clips) to groups of people (30 – 100) and i normally cart around a pair of fairly hefty creative speakers creative gigaworks t20 – which i have had for nearly eleven years and which have never let me down. I have been on the lookout for something a little more compact so that i don’t have to haul around unnecessary weight and now i have found another creative device that meets my every need. Small, compact and fairly weighty – this bad boy not only looks and feels premium, the quality of sound is fabulous. I have paired it via nfc with my samsung edge s7 to play music from amazon music and it plays flawlessly with lots of oomph. I have also connected via bluetooth to my ipad mini 4 to play music from my itunes collection – unbelievable audio and no lag. But i digress, my main source for the roar is my microsoft surface pro and either via bluetooth or via the supplied aux cable, again the sound from this unit is amazing. I have been so impressed with this device, i have bought the compatible sound blaster microphone creative iroar mic wireless voice projector with emotion amplifier – paired together, they work effortlessly to create an ultra portable pa system, suitable for gatherings for up to a 100 people in a medium sized conference hall/venue. Buy without hesitation (btw my son who has a bose soundlink mini bluetooth speaker ii – carbon – thought it was great, too).

Creative sound blaster roar pro portable speakerin the box. The speaker, usb lead, dire4ct jack to jack lead and transformer with uk plug plate plus instructions and guarantee. This is a well-made speaker with a metal grill and good quality plastics. The main control panel has a matt rubberised effect. It feels very solid and is quite heavy compared to other similar speakers i have. It measures 20 cm long by 11 cm deep by 5. It has a built in rechargeable battery to make it portable.

Quick delivery and exactly as described. Sound will never replace a proper stereo speaker system but as a portable device it sounds great. Good bass, which i like, but doesn’t drown out other tones. I had read some reviews that said at low level sound there was a hiss but i haven’t noticed that and i have pretty good hearing. The button to change the tones is handy for different types of music. I’m happy and it does the job it was intended for. The sound is more than adequate to fill a large room and for outdoors, the bluetooth covers a large area so you could walk about with the paired device and not losehad it a few days now sometimes the bass is too strong and it’s difficult to hear the words of some songs, even switching on/off roar button etc doesn’t help.

Quick review============i’ve had many bluetooth speakers over the years and this is certainly a powerful one. In terms of styling it’s now looking a little boring, but the sound is really powerful. I’ve had a roar speaker before and only had to reset it twice (press and hold the power button for more than 10 seconds then press the power button again to turn on the speaker) it’s not too stylish, but it is good looking and the sound is impressive. Pros:high end build qualityfull of featureswell balanced sound with awesome basssuperb battery lifecan be charged by usbcons:some of the features i don’t think i’ll ever usefull review===========i have used the bose and was impressed at the styling and the sound was faultless. Bose ® soundlink bluetooth speaker iiithe creative roar isn’t as pretty but i think it’s more powerful. It has charm, warmth and is the perfect guest. Sound=====this is where i thought the bose would win hands down. But side by side, i actually prefer the roar. The bass is more natural but loud. It’s clear, defined, and resounding.

This discreet black box produces quite a lot of sound. But it’s not just a bluetooth speaker – so perhaps it’s best suited to people who will actually use the additional features. I’ll talk about the features separately, starting with its most unique features. Speakerphone/sound recorder* quite a few bluetooth speakers allow you to also use them as speakerphones when making phone calls. However, this sound blaster roar pro has the added feature of allowing you to record content too. You just have to insert a micro sd card into a slot on the back of the device. There are then record and pause buttons on the back to operate the sound recording feature. I sometimes interview people at work and have used a small voice recorder at times. However, i found the sb roar pro’s voice recorder to record and then play back sound that seemed to be of a higher quality.

Somewhat bassy, but powerful and punchy for all that, the roar pro is the size, weight and shape of a small brick and kicks out enough volume for a living room party. I’ve had the original roar since it came out, and it has proved powerful, reliable and highly useful. This upgrade, with additional features such as ‘soothe to sleep’ and a full ten hours of battery life, tweaks the original concept, with refinements to almost every feature. The bottom line on this is that you get an astonishing amount of power and bass from such a small unit, you can connect two devices by bluetooth at once, have ad hoc connections, connect direct to the computer via usb or another player by mini-jack, and even take and receive calls as a hands-free unit—useful for conference calling from one meeting room to another. The sound quality is distortion free at any level, though the roar function compresses it for extra volume — probably not what you want to get the most out of beethoven’s pathétique, but great for parties. Tera bass is a psycho-acoustic bass replacer for listening at low volume levels without loss of apparent oomph. You can also set for warm, neutral or energetic. To my ears, everything on the roar pro is warm, but you can adjust that from your smartphone or computer anyway, which is what this is mainly for. The original roar has outlasted every other similar device we had from the same period, most of which are elegant but flimsy. Good, thumpy sound for good, thumpy music.

Great speaker nice and loud.

Sound quality 5* design and its functions 5* battery life 4*, deffo worth its price.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Speaker – : High Quality Sound From A High Quality Product

Sounds perfect with added features.

Very very loud for a mobile unit. Throws the competition in this price range clear out the window. If i were to find a niggle it would be the weight. Its a tad on the heavy side as a portable.

Love this bluetooth speaker. . The sound quality is amazing and the base is brilliant. . Nothing much else to add that hasn’t already been said.

It is so small but so powerful, the sound looks great at all aspects. Clear sound with awesome bass. I really recommend for everyone.

Just needs an phone app to control the mp3 player to make it perfect.

Iam delighted with this speaker the performance of the sound & bass is amazing for its size, price. Although it doesn’t look as cool compared to the other portable speakers on the market but for me the performance more then makes up for it. My only complaint is sometimes the bluetooth connectivity from my phone to the speaker isn’t always as smooth therefore loses a few seconds of the song i’m listening to. Don’t know whether it’s my phones issue or the speaker?so iam happy to give the sound blaster roar 2 a 4 star out of 5.

After lots of research i could not find a negative review about this speaker compared to the more well known and much higher priced alternate speakers. Very happy with sound quality it fills the room without any distortion.

The sound quality is brilliant, it’s stylish and the build quality is solid. My minor gripe would be that it’s a little too heavy. However this is a minor complaint with what is a very accomplished device from creative.

It beats bose hands down both in terms of pricing and sound output. It is indeed a creative sound blaster roar. The design is creatively impressive, the sound is as clear as clean water, the blast is as deep as the ocean and the roar is as enveloping as thunder.

This unit is solidly built and has so many functions that it is a true convergence device. Is primarily a speaker but also can used as a power pack and a stand alone mp3 player via micro usb cards (supports up to 32gb) the sound is impressive and easily fills a room, allied to the roar functions and it takes some beating.

This is a superb quality product, well made and produces a great sound.

Excellent sound and performance.

Amazing audio, it really fills a room, can’t fault it. I doubt you’ll find a better ratio of quality/price/audio definition, in any similar product.

After a lot of research on youtube etc. I bought this and i’m pretty pleased with it. My laptop sound chip seems to be broken so i’m using the roar2 connected to my computer via the soundblaster usb sound card headphone output and the aux in of the roar2 (ie use as an anologue portable speaker when bluetooth isn’t available). I haven’t tested the usb yet. The main reason i wanted a bluetooth speaker was that the speakers on the samsung galaxy tablet s2 are not very good. I’ve played some youtube videos on my tablet of some folk music i like and it sounds great through the roar 2. To me its just the right balance of treble and bassi looked at similar bluetooth speakers by jbl and bose. The jbls looked like they were brilliantly rugged ie waterproof etc and they had a good sound but to me a little harsh (probably my personal preference – listen on reviews on youtube to get some idea). I preferred the sound of the bose compared to the jbl as it seemed to have more refinement but it was more expensive. I’ve bought speakers, headphones and sound cards from creative before and have been pleased with them and they sounded ok to me.

Since i bought it listen to music more, particularly internet radio. We velcro it on the car dash to use it as a car speakerphone.

Good sound, whatever clavinetjunkie says. Didn’t notice any distortion. Recording and sd card handling is just great. Very clear, also at high volumes. I carry it with me all the time. This is a piece of real electronics.

Love creative products been using them for years and have not been disappointed yet. Good sound quality from a robust and well made speaker.

Having listened to my daughter’s creative sound blaster roar mark one, l studied all the reviews and the opposition out there. Although you can find many simpler, cheaper versions, l liked the compact and built in accessories of this creative model. Just now realizing that by plugging an bluetooth transmitter into my old portable cd player, l can now play all my old cd’s through this portable speaker via bluetooth, brilliant.

Incredible sound from a such a small speaker, really strong bass, and a widespread sound that fills the room. Sound performance is incredibly similar to the bose mini 2 and the whole unit feels really solid and well built, at £99 its an absolute bargain. 8 hour battery life for complete portability is also good, buy it.

Very impressive, with excellent clear sound at loud volumes, very full bass for its size, tight treble etc. Really good connectivity, bluetooth works flawlessly, sounds great via usb (pc) etc. Have taken a star off because the design is a little unusual in that the sides of the unit are moving speaker parts, and this limits where you can place it when out and about. For example, i’d like to use it in the car, but anywhere i place it securely the side speakers vibrate against whatever its resting on, distorting the sound. On a flat surface with clear space to the side this design is an advantage, but beware it’s not as portable as most bluetooth speakers for this reason. Doesn’t really detract overall for us as it’s mainly used in the kitchen and for that is excellent. Drum & bass and other bass-heavy music are brilliant via this.

Creative iRoar Go Portable 5-Driver Weatherproof Bluetooth Speaker – Great sound some problems

Initially i was not that impressed with this device based on the rather dear price, but after using it regularly for a month and a half, i’ve definitely come around. It’s not only a great portable bluetooth speaker, it has many other useful extra features such as a microsd card reader, a microphone adapter, a usb cable and excellent sound for its size. I have obviously not been able to bring it on a picnic yet, so it has been used mainly at home for my own entertainment as well as for dinner parties and even for some dancing on new year’s eve after the other speakers decided they needed a break. All goodand i want to come back to the sound, because that was what didn’t impress me at first. It sounded as if it was played in a box, but adjust the sound with the iroar button – simply press and it adjusts, and it’s a different story – of course depending on what type of music you play. If you want to go further into detail, you can use it with the app where there are further options to adjust bass, treble etc. It is also possible to use it for presentations, speeches, play days etc. I have a rockjam wired unidirectional dynamic microphone with 3 metre cord and it works well with the speakers (you do, however, have to use a 6. 5 mm jack plug adapter and a microphone adapter to make those two products work together). Whatever your preferred use whether just using it as a bluetooth speaker or if you use it for presentations, with microsd cards or any of the other multiple options.

A very portable, stylish, feature packed bluetooth speaker that stands well above any type of portable speaker i have owned previously. With a significant amount of metal making up the subtle styled body, the feel and weight of the speaker is significant but not too heavy to easily pack for a weekend away, moving room to room or even taking on holiday. Usable in two positions, upright or laying down, for alternative sound projection the controls buttons, rubberised as part of the weatherproofing are harder to use when say on a shelf at more than eye level but easy to use when upright. Easy to connect using just bluetooth of nfc if your phone allows – mine is connected with both a huawei p9 as well as a sony vaio laptop. Straight out of the box we have been using it for 2-3hrs now, without any further charge – but all the necessary adaptors are in the box for charging, as well as the usb lead. As possibly the most important feature of a speaker, the sound is incredible. The iroar function adds a wider sound dynamic and more spatial depth to audio, but even without the sound is still very good. I have used it to stream spotify, bbc radio iplayer, music from my sd card on my phone.

The creative iroar go portable 5-driver weatherproof bluetooth speaker is a portable wireless speaker which links up to your phone, tablet or pc etc to deliver a truly incredible sound quality through a portable and feature-packed device. Upon opening the box up for the first time you’ll see how compact the iroar go is. Compared with the previous creative sound blaster roar models, it’s on pretty much an equal par. Here’s a handy measurement comparison between the three modes:sound blaster roar 1:21cm (w) x 12cm (d) x 6cm (h)sound blaster roar 2:18. 5cm (d) x 5cm (h)iroar go:19cm (w) x 10cm (d) x 6cm (h)like with the older ‘sound blaster’ models, being such a compact size the iroar go speaker really is an incredibly portable piece of audio equipment that’s absolutely ideal for taking away with you. Aesthetically speaking, the speaker looks just as stylish and sleek as the sound blaster roar 2 speaker did. The main shell of the speaker is still constructed from a black coated metal which covers most of the speaker’s surfaces. All in all the design of the iroar go is definitely just as sleek and perhaps even more contemporary than the sound blaster models. Underneath the black mesh of the speaker you have five powerful drivers (including a built-in subwoofer that really pumps out the bass. Cranking up the volume on the speaker, you hear absolutely no amalgamation of sound, no loss of acoustics through unwanted blending, and a clear distinction between the spectrum of notes being reproduced. Bass-wise, the built-in subwoofer along with the two unobstructed passive radiators provide some properly earth-shattering and stomach-churning bass depths – plummeting downwards to mind-boggling levels when music dictates such depths. For those that really care about the quality of the sound, the warmth of notes, depth and coverage of the bass, the acoustic notes and clarity of the overall sound produced – then the iroar go is definitely something you’ll want to take a good look at. Creative know their business. They know how to produce good-quality mid-to-high-end speakers and audio equipment.

I returned the jbl charge 3 for this one and i am very happy that i did.

I love this speaker, for both function and its cool, slightly retro look. It is about 20cm in length and of adequate size to carry around with you without it being a hindrance. It comes with many connectivity options usb, micro-sd and audio aux, in addition to the core bluetooth function. It has a multi-face plug, so no need to worry about adapters, wherever you buy it. The sound quality is exceptional and the battery life (so far) exceeded the time i had available to listen. Only minus point the side woofers that you can press with your fingers, giving you the impression that you are damaging the speakers. Be careful also not to misinterpret the weatherproof, as waterproof. It will work outside if its drizzly, but i would not take it in the shower with meall in all, an excellent contender in a crowded market, from a leading brand in the technology of sound.

  • Iroar go puts all other speakers to shame
  • Think Carefully.
  • Blimey it’s loud! , really loud 🎶 , beautiful sound quality with just enough base & treble 😁

Big soundperfect wide sound effecthigh quality of material.

You’ve never heard a compact bluetooth speaker that sounds like this. For the physical size the bass response is nothing short of astonishing. We’ve had a few bluetooth audio devices around the house the last few years, most recently i bought a no-brand chinese self-contained speaker specifically so that the kids could play music from their phones when we stayed in a holiday cottage. It’s a great idea, combining bluetooth receiver, amplifier and its own rechargeable battery in one compact unit. However, they normally sound quite awful, although better than the listening to a phone in hands-free mode. The creative iroar is a whole different class of device, though. They have cleverly turned the two end-pieces into bass units (and they do shift a lot of air), while three treble/midrange units in the central section look after the more melodic range of the music. You can place the unit on its base or on its back, depending on whether you want the majority of the sound to go ‘across’ or ‘up’, and really it sounds great, and it goes up really loud (they claim 3w output). The bluetooth pairing was quite simple: pressing the pairing/bluetooth button on the front makes it broadcast its name, which you can then pick up and connect to from your phone or tablet. Within a couple of minutes of unpacking we were playing music from phones, and also streaming from the spotify app.

The speaker is quite heavy for its smallish size, very solid and feels well built, with a black perforated metal grill on the front and silver metal side pieces – be careful of the side mounted sound ‘radiators’ though which are loosely connected to the body and actually vibrate during play. The body features five speaker drivers – the two previously mentioned ‘radiators’ on the sides and two high frequency 1. 5′ subwoofer on the front/top. Controls are black soft-touch rubber buttons on the top/front which allow you to turn the unit on, adjust volume, toggle between sources – blue tooth, micro sd card, usb and auxiliary. There are also play/stop, random, record, fast forward and rewind buttons and a button that lets you toggle between the unit’s sound choices – normal, ‘roar’ and ‘equaliser’. On the top of the unit are two separate rubber covers which hide the connections underneath – micro sd card slot, usb, auxiliary and 15v power supply – i wasn’t so enamoured by the design of these which are obviously dictated by the ‘splash proof’ brief of the unit, although the larger one seems fixed the smaller one comes off and could easily be lost. In use the speakers are surprisingly loud and clear, the instructions recommend laying the unit on its back to give ‘superwide stereo imaging with dispersion’ i must admit that the first time that i tried this i couldn’t really tell any difference, however when playing a different track there was a noticeable difference – more open, ‘cleaner’ sound. Similarly the difference between the sounds (normal, ‘roar’ and ‘equaliser’) suits different tracks. The bluetooth connected quickly with an audio warning that you were in pairing mode and the button flashing.

I am very pleased with this stylish speaker. The sound quality is very good indeed and while it is compact and sturdy for outdoor use it is not very heavy to carry. The instructions are easy to follow and there i are no problems with syncing to devices.

The sound is rich and clear with amazing depth. This is a ‘proper’ speaker for music lovers. Its compact, but boy does it pack a punch. Comes with a built-in subwoofer for room-filling audio, and 2 amplifiers for balanced audio delivery,it looks classy, with some great design features including the sides of the device with ‘springy’ speakers, it’s easily portable and its waterproof. Now, i wont be bringing this outdoors but its always a constact worry that when playing this and leaving on the side when entertaining, somebody will spill a glass of wine nearby and ruin a great speaker. Add to this it looks fab (you just want to pick it up), it has a good weight about it, as in in feels and looks like a good quality product. It also has a slot for a microcard sd reader.

This portable speaker is so powerful for its size with the amplifiers producing a crisp clear sound with excellent bass. Some lovely features including voice recording and a micro-sd card reader. Which is whole new world to me and i love it. The speaker is relatively light and will be excellent for outdoors bbqs and parties in the summer, with the waterproof feature. Bluetooth pairing is quick and easy and the speaker comes with a charger and various plug adapters.

It is as good as the roar 2 which i owned previously so i’m not new to this speakers impressive sound stage. The volume is ridiculously loud just what i love about this speaker its one to blast loud and proud when you are out with it and watch peoples heads turn as they wonder where the sound is coming from haha i always enjoyed that with the roar 2 and this one is just as good. The sound quality is the best i’ve heard from a bluetooth speaker and to put simply if you really are curious about how this speaker sounds i will put it this way for you. The iroar go doesn’t deserve to be called a bluetooth speaker, it is more on the lines of a true portable hifi system if there is such a thing, thats what this sounds like. The bass is outstanding and will truly impress you it is boomy and hard hitting and will definately satisfy you if you love bassy music like myself. Bluetooth connection is good too it played flawlessy when i left the roar in my kicthen downstairs and took my phone upstairs so no problems there. It advertises as splash proof but haven’t tested it and don’t want to for obvious reasons haha i wouldnt put water on this gem. The design is also pleasing to the eye as it has aluminium rings on the edge and machine finished radiators which look gorgeous too.All in all this speaker is a true gem of speaker and best i’ve had and possibly the best i will ever have unless something better comes out so trust my words of wisdom and don’t hesitate on buying this you won’t regret the purchase.

Sounds better and plays louder than i expected.

Well this had good reviews over others like bose which i had experience of and nearly went for. I have opened it plugged it in connected bluetooth and enjoying the amazing sound within 20 mins. I cannot get over how clear it is. It’s so clear you can hear every instrument. So pleased go on go for it .

Far exceeded my expectations.

The battery life was excellent. The product looks well made but it broke days after i could technically return it for a refund.  creative iroar go portable 5-driver weatherproof bluetooth speakerfirst the rubber connection covers broke off the top (irreparable) and i ignored this as i was enjoying the sound so much. Then al buttons stopped working. On/off actually locked ‘on’ (until the battery runs out) but that it was still unusable as i could not select a sound source or pair anything with bluetooth. I called amazon (uk) and amazingly they allowed either a replacement or a refund.

Compact 5-driver bluetooth speaker

Quality speaker with impressive sound for its size and price point. You won’t be disappointed.

Well made good sound and features,not keen on the rubber waterproof covers over the connection points,apart from that i am very pleased with this speaker.

Incredible sound that has the best stereo separation for a portable speaker i have known. Lots of features and charging accessories. For the price this is an absolute marvel. Connects easily via bluetooth. Great for travel though larger than many equivalents.

Finally i’ve found the perfect bluetooth speaker after going through a fair few brands. I’m very fussy when it comes to sound quality and none of the speakers had the oomph i was looking for. Most would distort fairly easily or had extremely tinny bass even though reviews mentioned ‘powerful bass’ etc. From the speakers i own none provided a good nutral sound signature with an emphasis on hard hitting mid and deep bass. I push my bluetooth speakers pritty hard as i prefer to run them through the line out of my sound blaster e5 headphone amp with sbx surround processing enabled and using a very bass heavy custome eq. The creative iroar go is a true beast of a speaker you have to truely hear this beast to appreciate how powerful this speaker is it can truely pump out a lot of sound for its size as well as pushing insane levels of bass. Even when running this through a bluetooth connection or a line out jack from a computer etc it pushes a lot of bass for its size its truely impressive and the audio is crisp, punchy and hard hitting without getting distorted at moderate to high volume levels. When connecting this to my e5 amp it transforms into a monster portable system at low volumes the passive radiators on both sides of the speaker pulse nicely to the bass even at loud volumes there is no distortion what so ever which is truely impressive. I’ve tinkered with the sound blaster connect 2 app on windows 10 with absolutely no issues the iroar go was detected within seconds and works flawlessly with the app and drivers using both my chuwi hi10 windows 10 tablet running october 2018 update as well as on my 7 year old dell vostro 3550 running build 1803 from a 500gb bootable ssd. Before purchasing this i ordered the creative roar 2 which is just as powerful though as other reviews have confirmed the iroar go is slightly louder than the roar 2.

Excellent item with great sound. Had it lockup once, but there’s a hard reset process that worked fine. Slightly annoying is that my iphone x detects it from a good distance away and picks it for its output device even when the iroar set to use usb, but i’ve not yet looked to see if the bluetooth can be disabled as opposed to unpairing the phone to avoid this.

I have never used a blue tooth speaker before but have to say i’m really impressed with this speaker. I didn’t want to spend a fortune but i didn’t want a cheap and nasty speaker either. I bought this purely on the reviews and the look of it and am really pleased with it. It does exactly what i want it to do and that is to listen to music out my garden on a warm and pleasant evening.

All terrain weather resistant with all weather IPX6 IP-certification

I love the sound quality and everything else, but it lasts only 6 hours on max volume and it has to be charged by a separate adapter, rather than simply by power bank via usb, which is inconvenient.

We own creative lab computer speakers and they sound tremendous, excellent quality so we knew the sound quality of a creative lab speaker and the quality of the speakers themselves build quality etc , but i did not know the sound of this iroar go bluetooth speaker until i set this speaker up , well for such a teeny tiny speaker i wasn’t really expecting it to sound to loud , after setting the speaker up with its new driver update which was via the creative lab iroar go website and after charging it up you could say i was totally in shock and amazement , it’s just loud , really loud and i didn’t need the volume up full on my iphone and the creative lab app that goes with the speaker lets you adjust the base & treble and loads of other settings to help with sound quality etc , the loudness of the speaker most definitely filled our living and dining room with no problems at all , classical , pop , rock all sound amazing with such great detail. The price of this iroar go speaker is a bargain considering what you are getting in music quality and build quality. No complaints and no bad points , nothing bad at all to say about it. But i would recommend a case to protect it when not in use. Highly recommended for any music 🎵 lover.

It is a better product then i expected.

Battery life is questionable, i can only get around 6 hours & that’s only using moderate volume.

Compared with my last portable speaker, this has a confident heft and weight – it doesn’t feel cheap, nor does it feel like it will collapse and shudder if i turn the volume past eleven. The volume does go some way past eleven – this is a beast when it comes to stomach rumbling, wall bouncing noise and doesn’t suffer from any fuzz or instability the more it is pushed. I also enjoy the pulsating ends, good fun to put your finger on either side and feel the beats pump out. Set up is a little fiddly and each time i use it there is a measure of messing around – i primarily use this in a wired fashion with my ipod – but sometimes it just doesn’t recognise my device until i filter through the options a few times. The display is clear enough, little lights and symbols on the top and front to alert you to your choices, volume buttons, skip through tracks etc. Options for cables etc are hidden under a little flap, presumably to keep the thing looking stylish but again this can be annoying if you want to lift it up to insert a cord. I’ve used a microphone on it too – same great, clear sound. I have not yet tried any wireless or bluetooth feature yet, presumably this would be the easiest way to go. Finally, the roar button gives that added boost but the sound is so pure and heavy by itself i’m not sure if it is really needed. This is an excellent top of the range device which would be great for house parties or sitting out in the garden waiting for your sausages to burn on the barbecue, with plenty of options to cater for your listening needs.

This is a fantastic piece of kit ,visually pleasing to the eye and totally pleasing to the ears, i don’t know how such a small speaker unit can blast out such a clear, clean, crisp and loud sound?. The whole unit as soon as you feel it in your hands it just exudes quality and dare i say – prestige. Just picking up and handling the creative i roar go immediately justifies what some might feel is a rather elevated rrpfirst class modernistic design and made from top rate materials. Principal features include;versatile connectivity with bluetooth; usb;5 drivers with built in subwoofer (for an awesome bass). Integrated digital music player2 amplifiers for room filling but balanced audio. Transforms quickly into a personal pa system for presentation and singing. One touch bluetooth pairing for wireless streamingcharges your phone or tabletand much more including claiming to have been critically acclaimed in many leading journals and magazines worldwide although these are not listed or named. My daughter, who has her own children’s party business in bristol, immediately passed her eyes over the creative i roar go as she started reading the instructions and mumbling about how this would be so much better for providing the party sounds than the well known household brand she was using then. When we rigged it up to test it the results -in my opinion, were astonishing. That a box so small could produce a sound so pure, clear and loud was nothing short of a scientific miracle.

I use this excellent little unit in my sauna where the humidity is regularly over 60% and temperatures top 85°c. Great sound for music and soundscapes alike. For the money there isn’t a better speaker out there. Sound is great for the size and the profiles allow a very personal experience, whether it be soul music, meditative sound scapes or audiobooks. Negatives:rubber coverings for the inputs, they feel fragile.

Super Wide Mode for a wide audio experience from a small device

It gets near daily use in our kitchen. And we’ve even encouraged other family members to buy one too. It’s a neat little speaker than fits well in a modern kitchen. It’s easy to operate and the bluetooth connectivity works well. It produces a good sound and battery life is great too.

Found this absolutely excellent, easy to use, and perfect for summer days in the garden. It is a little chunky to carry round a lot, but very intuitive to set up, great sound quality and still working with no deterioration many months later.

I am the proud owner of the previous creative roar speaker which i have always thought is brilliant – but i think that this one is even better. It is a portable kind of size. Out of the box, you need to put the plug together and charge the speaker. However, the speaker can be used as it is charging through the power cable. In use, the speaker pairs up easily and quickly with your bluetooth compatible device. I have been using it with an ipad and with an iphone. It has a very full sound, which is rich and particularly good for a speaker which is this size. There is very little distortion even at high volumes, on a range of different music.

This creative iroar portable speaker comes in at around the same price as the market leader the bose soundlink mini. The latter, however, is fashioned by the prison service namely it plays music and that’s it. Bose can also be a bit temperamental in terms of bluetooth connectivity. This creative roar speaker was, therefore, a bit of a revelation. Firstly the sound is as crisp as a packet of walkers and manages some of the highest bass ranges with ease. It passes the prodigy ‘firestarter’ test with flying colours as it mocks the throbbing bass of liam hewlett and manages to fully absorb the depth of the song. The two far field tweeters are located in a way where they ‘hang’ to the side of the speaker and are not rigidly fixed. This massively reduces distortion. In addition to the above, the unit transforms quickly into a personal pa system for presentation and singing, is showerproof (although do not drop it in the bath or take it for a swim) as such it can be used on the beach to blast fellow sunbathers and best of all charges your phone or tablet. It connected to an i mac like two peas in a pod and has an aux cable to connect to a cd (which i have not tried).

Great product with good sound quality. It is capable of playing flac files from microsd card. Unfortunately can’t read cue files, so will need to rip the cds in one flac file per track. The sound is crisp and clear and the roar mode is making a good difference. The unit is well build, having the feel of a premium product. It is also water proof, a nice feature for the uk weather. A nice feature is the option to record your own voice or phone conversations. For that have a dedicated record/play/pause button. Have dedicated software for iphone/android/mac/windows. Missing the linux oneto control the iroar go remotely i’m using the sb connect app on iphone wia bluetooth, but unfortunately that app is missing the option to browse the content of the microsd card by folders.

I previously owned the sb roar and have been telling everyone for years that it is by far the best gadget i have ever bought. However, bought this when my old roar died after years of heavy use and although the sound and compact design is amazing when plugged into my tv via aux cable the sound drops out when there is a quiet moment in programs i have been watching. I didn’t have this problem with the original sb roar, it played audio flawlessly without any drop out even with quiet moments in programs. I don’t know if there something i can do to fix this or if the unit itself is faulty. Also tried to hook it up to my computer to do a firmware update to see if this would solve the problem and it failed to update the firmware on three separate occasions. Will change to 5 stars if there is a fix for the aux problems with my tv and firmware updating.

Bluetooth and NFC for one-touch pairing

this speaker is small, light and portable, and it doubles up as a portable charger for your smartphone as wellsound quality wise: this is probably one of the best portable bluetooth speakers i have ever heard. The bass is clean (depending on source) and can be felt, the mid and high are equally excellent. What’s more, iroar go is splash-proofall these plus the functions of the iroar, its bigger brother, made this a definite great buy for those that prefer the music loud and clear and partttyy. ]

Unwrap it slowly, the multi-compartmented box is a little tricky, but one always knows where one is headed. It’s to be found in the little bag; and withdraw it slowly and there it is, gleaming, with its weighty and refined precision in one’s palm. The lovely, quality finish with the restrained graphics, nice switchgear and tiny, tiny blinking lights ready to burst forth. Charge it; the little light will stop blinking when it’s ready. It’s an unusual power supply so just use it and don’t even think of trying anything else. It pairs with one’s ipad and also one’s phone (an inexpensive s3 mini) in the time it takes to press the button. It reveals both visually with a nice little light that has suddenly joined the others that it is paired and also offers such information verbally. Sound is as one would expect given such a beautiful unit – absolutely amazing. For sure it sounds good in the default mode, and then you realise that you can tune it further with the settings such as the iroar setting, which is stunning. The volume control gives a smooth progression of undiluted and undistorted power with no shake, no rattle and no roll from the beautifully engineered unit, which never misses a beat.

Very good speaker, load and good bass (for it’s size) wow.

This is the ‘creative iroar go portable weatherproof bluetooth speaker’ an absolutely stunning means of playing back your music. It features connectivity through bluetooth or usb, a built in subwoofer with amplifiers and chargers, one click connect to mobile devices, it is weather and shower proof (so feel free to take it outside or in the shower), you can playback from flash drives or micro-sd cards and likely one of the best features of all – it can charge your phone or tablet like a powerbank – just connect and siphon some juice. The sound quality on playback is very good – perfectly crisp and clear. It cannot be faulted in the slightest in this regard. Bass, tremble, tone and pitch it can handle all variations with easy. Build quality is high and the weather proofing is excellent (and works as it continued to play uninterrupted through a down pour with no problems). The entire speaker screams quality and with its modernistic design is very pleasing to the eye. There is a host of technical information on this amazon page if you want to dig deeper and find out what is on offer -however trust me when i say there is no need – this speaker will do everything you want and more (music related of course). Bluetooth speakers come in all manners of sizes and styles with price tags to match. While this may seem expensive, the quality and features on offer combined with the stunning sound output easily makes this creative iroar something to roar about.

Creative T15W Wireless : Five Stars

I was expecting a better quality sound from these speakers but overall i’m happy with the purchase. I’ve been looking for a speaker that i can hook up to my tv but also allows me to connect my phone wirelessly to listen to music. These ones are the only ones that come close to meeting my expectations. Pros:- connecting my phone to the bluetooth speakers was simple. – the sound quality is ok, nothing spectacular but the sound quality is good. – they have a tone dial for bass and treble control. – they go to sleep automatically and turn on automatically when you want to use them. – there is no need to press a button when switching from bluetooth to the line-in input. Basically it will play from both simultaneously if you want to. This is what i have been looking for – i.

I have these speakers in my photography studio and they can fill the space no problem. Great connection options with bluetooth, nfc and 35. I can play either my own or a clients music during shoots.

Excellent sound quality for the price and easy to connect to bluetooth. The only niggle is the constantly flashing blue led in the bluetooth button.

  • Good Value Sound That Doesn’t Cost An Earth To Buy!
  • Good speakers.
  • Work well with a PC or laptop

Creative T15W Wireless (2.0) Bluetooth Speakers with BasXPort Technology and Aux-in – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Tweeters deliver high frequency performance
  • Dedicated drivers for distinctive midrange audio
  • Creative BasXPort technology – large port tube that delivers high output bass
  • Streams music wirelessly from stereo Bluetooth devices
  • Tone control that encompasses treble and bass that tailors to your music playback

Bought these off amazon to replace a set of ageing advent satellite speakers (2. 1) for use as a casual set of speakers. I didn’t expect the bass to be great but everything turned out fine although not as great as the speakers they were replacing, fine for the space saving that they provide along with the more balanced tones. Not much to say about the speakers other than that, a few of my thoughts about the pros and cons of the speakers are:pros:- space saving whilst providing ample bass. – bluetooth range is fine past 1 concrete wall dividing a room. – both the aux in and bluetooth inputs can be used simultaneously. – easy bluetooth connectivity, whilst does not automatically search for the last device; it can be connected to via the device or pressing the bluetooth button once on the main speaker unit. Cons:- led flashing whilst connected via bluetooth can be distracting. (is constantly on whilst connected using the aux in. )- bluetooth delays due to codec support (only minor when at close ranges, not really noticeable when watching videos either).

Very good sound quality over bluetooth without being too big.

Bought as a gift, she is very pleased.

The speakers are great when playing devices are connected directly by cable to aux-in socket. I must be unlucky because i found when the bluetooth connection was live it resulted in loud, scratchy interference. Turned off the wi-fi, router and other devices but it made no difference whichever room i set them up in. I cannot categorically blame the product, there may be something in my house, or even my neighbour’s house that is interfering with the bluetooth frequency. My review just points out that there is a risk that that the bluetooth technology may not be effective, so why pay more. T10 would have done the same job.

I bought these for my laptop as i was getting fed up of all the messy, untidy cables draping about the place and its an excellent alternative. You can even connect your phone or any other bluetooth audio device to them making it excellent at parties.

I have these attached to my win 10 pc. The bluetooth connection worked straight away and setting up is very straightforward. They look good and the sound is very adequate for a small room or office. I wouldn’t recommend these as tv speakers and i don’t think that is what they are intended for, but the dynamic range isn’t bad if you turn the treble right up. They lack a bit of bass, but for the size and price i think they are pretty adequate.

Decent speakers but be warned they do not come with a standard audio cable that is required to connect them up if you do not intend to use the bluetooth.

When i opend box thought there a bit small but wow thay are brill set in 2 mins. The onley thing i do not like is the flashing blue light dose not stop flashing. I put them in a nother room about 25 feet and that still worked lovley away from laptop. I have syced with a samsung laptop with win 10 and a samsung s4, and a asus tablet. I think ill buy another pair. This is a ps3+4 proble not the speakers.

Good speakers, work well and have great range.

Good for what i need them to do cud be usb but still good for the money.

Looks great and sounds good. Would have given it 5 stars but because creative didn’t add a 70p jack to jack cable i’l just give 4. 70p to make it a complete package???.

So sobluetooth connection doesn’t work very good, there is a delay quite often, than i have to restart the speakers. 3 stars instead of 2 because the output is great.

Impressed & happy with these speakers. Sending sound wirelessly via bluetooth from a laptop or iphone has been easy for non-technical users.

Excellent speakers lovely tone would have given it 5 stars but for the power supply lead having a continental 2 pin connector (very small pins) had to go an buy a power supply for it not an ideal situation selling this type of power supply in the uk. This should have been pointed out by the supplier before you ordered.

These sound great for their size. My main annoyance is that when using them in bluetooth mode you have to press the ‘connect’ button every time you turn them on. I think that there should be an option to automatically connect, which would be particularly useful if, like me, you are not using the analogue audio input at all.

Powerful, punchy bass (i was specifically looking for some speakers that packed a punch), great clarity, sounds amazing, looks amazing. One downside is that there’s interference when using bluetooth – pretty often. But i’m willing to put up with that because it’s very quiet and hardly noticeable, and these speakers sound so damn good.

I’ve had the earlier model of these speakers connected directly to the tv for ps4 gameplay for ages, they always performed brilliantly. And only replaced due to flooding. Am glad to say this model sounds even better than the last.The extra bass upgrade means that even with the treble quite high you still get a nice balance of sound. They look smart and give out more than enough sound to fill a room.

What can i say about these other than they are an absolute steal for the price. I only got them today and can already tell i will have nothing but joy using them. They are very good for casual gamer and people who like to play music when working on something or when you want to lie down and just listen to something on shuffle. Honestly i would buy two sets of these just because the bass is so good for what you pay. Haven’t tried the bluetooth yet but i’m sure im going to have a blast with it when i have friends round. Note: bear in mind that i do have a sound card built into my pc so sound should be better anyway for me.

Creative T15W Wireless : great clarity, sounds amazing

Excellent sound quality for the price and easy to connect to bluetooth. The only niggle is the constantly flashing blue led in the bluetooth button.

The sound is positively amazing, i play my mobile phone songs through it and you can even control the volume with said mobile, crazylife now will never be the same again, i can keep my phone in my pocket and do chores and change the song on the move no wiresmy dad is 79 so the idea of mobile phones amaze him i cant wait to blow his mind with this haha.

Had to send first ones back as they stopped working but fair play- i was sent another pair with no quibbles.

Just as good as their giga line,brilliant sound.

Very good sound quality over bluetooth without being too big.

A wonderful set of speakers that belies its known 10 watts of sound power/rms. But then, i am not surprised. I still own a set of creative speakers from the 1990s with a 150 watt amplifier and 8 tweeter boxes. I also have an additional set of creative pillar pc speakers that eventually had to be thrown away purchased in 2000 that are quite similar to the t15 set with the exception of balance control not featured here. Size, quality, controls & connectionshowever these speakers are not exactly slim or thin – they are slightly bigger than a half pint carton of milk (see photo) each whilst being elevated permanently to 10° from the front. I didn’t have to read the mini fold out user manuals that came with the t15 set, having owned creative products before and everything is laid out with clear labelling on the back and fronts of the main controller left hand speaker. This is my second pair of t15 speakers since i bought mine last year. 5 metre length power cable with a slide on uk 3 pin adaptor plug as well as 1.

I was expecting a better quality sound from these speakers but overall i’m happy with the purchase.

Why can’t they put the vital (not expensive ) part, the audio cable that connects the speaker to your pc in the box too.

Good speakers, work well and have great range.

They do the job , the quality of the sound is acceptable, clear sound on pop , jazz music or watching movies from my computer, on hard rock music with distorted guitars the sound is a bit flat and confused. If you need something medium quality it’s a good item. Not power enough for parties. I had some creative many years ago with subwoofer and the bass and volume was much louder. A good item as computer desk speakers.

Using via my computer and have to say very impressed with the sound from the speakers. Didn’t take long to set up with a bluetooth connection either, highly recommend.

Decent speakers but be warned they do not come with a standard audio cable that is required to connect them up if you do not intend to use the bluetooth.

Not bad speakers they look good and sound good over all very good. They got to me in good time.

Creative T30 Wireless – Quality sound and good price

These speakers have a nice quality sound.

Extremely loud and very easy to connect devices to. A lot of reviewers are down rating them because they turn off after 20 minutes. But this is only a problem if you plan to use audio cables instead of bluetooth. If you connect via bluetooth then the speakers will wake up whenever audio is sent to them. If you’re looking for wired speakers, then look elsewhere. But if you plan to use these for mainly bluetooth streaming, they’re excellent.

Awesome sound and versatility. Here are the specifications for the Creative T30 Wireless:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 2 – Driver design that features a dedicated tweeter and driver
  • Silk dome tweeters – enjoy full bodied and silky smooth highs
  • Woven glass fibre cone drivers
  • Creative BasXPort Technology – large port tube that delivers high output bass
  • Streams music wirelessly from most stereo Bluetooth devices and features aptX support for high quality wireless audio streaming

I use these as speakers for my echo dot in the bedroom, and they sound great. Good punchy bass rounds off a nice balanced sound, with plenty of volume if needed. Connects effortlessly to every bluetooth device i’ve tried so far. Slight downside is the cable connecting the two speakers was a bit short to place them either side of the bed, so i bought a cheap phono extension cable for three quid on amazon.

These active speakers were great value, and the sound quality is excellent. The speaker case is deeper than i expected, but i expect this makes the bass sounds better.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Alexa never sounded so good
  • Great speakers for you £
  • The sound quality of these is outstanding for the size

I’m very happy with these speakers , they sound great in my small room .

I purchased these speakers as a christmas gift for my girlfriend and, suffice to say, she couldn’t be happier with them. The quality you get for them justifies the price. The only issue over noticed about them is that sometimes they’re a bit out of sync with the audio source. But i’m sure that’s really of the bluetooth module and not the actual speakers.

Bought them for someone else and they said they were super happy with them, good quality for a good price.

Still have these after all this time.

Really like the sound quality and the richness of the bass (especially in comparison to the t40’s). Only annoying thing is that if the laptop is left for a while the speakers can drop the bluetooth connection but it’s easily re-established.

Great speakers for the price, just as described.

Amazing speakers, however s couple months after purchase the main speaker stopped working and only the 2nd speaker (without controls) now works which is frustrating as they are great sounding speakers.

Nice speakers but the auto shut off ‘feature’ is damn annoying.

The sound quality of these is outstanding for the size and price, the bass is deep but not overwhelming, and the overall sound is well balanced. Although i mainly use these for my desktop pc the nfc feature is a huge bonus and makes streaming from my android phone (galaxy a3) a doddle. Will be buying the larger set soon for use with my tv :).

Took 3 days to work,worked for 4 days now does not play any sound. Would not buy another creative product.

If anything a little too bass heavy but this is personal preference.

Sweet sounds nice bass clear sound good range on bluetooth.

Sounds great, nice crisp and loud you can use it to replace your sound bar. Ditch the sound bar and use this. Got a good feel to it, with the controls, the power and bluetooth buttons lights up. This product needs regular cleaning as it tends to be dusty all the time. The speakers seems to be unstable or off balanced and can easily be knocked over, i used blutacks to hold them in place.

Very good sound, and the bluetooth is very good most of the time, although it sometimes just cuts off for no apparent reason,the volume could be a bit louder but a very good sound altogether.

Excellent speakers with great sound. Simple to set-up and i use them across multiple devices.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Speaker – : Just love the technology

This is a superb quality product, well made and produces a great sound.

Good sound, whatever clavinetjunkie says. Didn’t notice any distortion. Recording and sd card handling is just great. Very clear, also at high volumes. I carry it with me all the time. This is a piece of real electronics.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Speaker – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Compact, powerful, portable booklet-sized speaker
  • Incorporates five drivers (including a built-in subwoofer), powered by two high-performance amplifiers
  • NFC-enabled for one-touch wireless connectivity with AAC and aptX codec support for high quality Bluetooth audio
  • Feature packed with built-in MP3 player, voice recorder, speakerphone, 6000 mAh battery bank (phone charger) and USB Sound Blaster
  • Dual orientation – the Sound Blaster Roar 2 can be positioned horizontally or vertically

Pretty good battery and sound for the size. Big improvement on capsule speakers i was using before.

Just needs an phone app to control the mp3 player to make it perfect.

Really impressed with this speaker. Small and powerful, lovely balanced sound.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Speaker – Black : This unit is solidly built and has so many functions that it is a true convergence device. Is primarily a speaker but also can used as a power pack and a stand alone mp3 player via micro usb cards (supports up to 32gb) the sound is impressive and easily fills a room, allied to the roar functions and it takes some beating.

It beats bose hands down both in terms of pricing and sound output. It is indeed a creative sound blaster roar. The design is creatively impressive, the sound is as clear as clean water, the blast is as deep as the ocean and the roar is as enveloping as thunder.

Love this bluetooth speaker. . The sound quality is amazing and the base is brilliant. . Nothing much else to add that hasn’t already been said.

Love creative products been using them for years and have not been disappointed yet. Good sound quality from a robust and well made speaker.

Great sound, easy to set up. Smaller than expected i was thinking more sonos size. But still blasts out the tunes.

Awesome bluetooth speaker had the first soundblaster roar unfortunately battery gave out and only works on power now so can’t use it portable anymore this roar 2 is just as good if not better clearer too.

Bought as a second in addition to having the original roar. Sounds and looks great, nice and loud and is smaller that the roar 1. My only slight concern is durability, mainly on the sides. In the first version they’re speakers behind a metal grill, but on this version they seem to move and be part of the speaker?.I’m worried they might break if they’re struck.

In almost all respects the roar2 is a fantastic device, but the dropouts from wireless communication ruin an otherwise great experience.

Best purchase i’ve made in years. Crystal clear sound especially at lower volumes. Does go very loud but very often not required at such high volumes. Sound quality is that good that it appears quite loud but you can still have a normal conversation in the same room with out having to raise you voice, the highs, mids and lows are that clear. I love the terra bass mode which i’ve found works best on low volume. When the kids go to bed i turn the volume down to it’ lowest, turn terra bass on and the bass is clear and prominent but not loud enough to wake the kids. I’ve ended up using this speaker every day and take it every where with me. Every one else is incrediably impressed by it as well.

Sounds perfect with added features.

Very very loud for a mobile unit. Throws the competition in this price range clear out the window. If i were to find a niggle it would be the weight. Its a tad on the heavy side as a portable.

Enjoy this speaker very much. The sound quality is amazing for such a small device. A bit more on the pricier side but definitely worth it.

After lots of research i could not find a negative review about this speaker compared to the more well known and much higher priced alternate speakers. Very happy with sound quality it fills the room without any distortion.

It sounds great, i don’t know how anyone could be unhappy there. I bought this for travelling, and i wouldn’t be without it. This speaker is pretty versatile, and will work great in various situations. With so many speakers, at all price ranges, i’m very happy with my choice. And everyone who’s seen and heard it has been impressed.

Iam delighted with this speaker the performance of the sound & bass is amazing for its size, price. Although it doesn’t look as cool compared to the other portable speakers on the market but for me the performance more then makes up for it. My only complaint is sometimes the bluetooth connectivity from my phone to the speaker isn’t always as smooth therefore loses a few seconds of the song i’m listening to. Don’t know whether it’s my phones issue or the speaker?so iam happy to give the sound blaster roar 2 a 4 star out of 5.

Incredible sound from a such a small speaker, really strong bass, and a widespread sound that fills the room. Sound performance is incredibly similar to the bose mini 2 and the whole unit feels really solid and well built, at £99 its an absolute bargain. 8 hour battery life for complete portability is also good, buy it.

Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar – Bluetooth : Impressive and great sound quality

Took forever to get to me, but i’m very happy with it the sound is great and looks great.

I previously had some creative gigaworks t40’s for my pc speaker setup and while it was very good it was lacking in the bass department. I read a few reviews on the creative sbx katana and picked up a set. I was not expecting this, the level audio fidelity is incredible. Loud, rich and room filling sound stage. The passive subwoofer that comes with this packs a hefty punch. Oh and rgb lighting for that extra fanciness. I could not be happier with this and totally worth the high price tag.

Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar – Bluetooth, AUX-in, USB FlashDrive, Headset-out, Mic-in, Optical-in, USB for PC, PS4, PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Powerful audio – The Sound BlasterX Katana utilises a tri-amplified, 5-driver design with for games, movies, and music. Each driver is individually chambered and powered for ultra-precise audio
  • Works with PS4, PC, and consoles – The Sound BlasterX Katana utilises both optical connectivity and USB, giving you great audio on PCs and Consoles. It even has Bluetooth for your phone!
  • Pumping Bass – The Sound BlasterX Katana utilises a 5.25″ super stiff paper cone subwoofer driver, housed in a CARB-compliant MDF cabinet with a flared port tube. All this comes together for bass that reverberates through your bones!
  • Built in intelligence – The Sound BlasterX Katana’s award-winning proprietary multi-core DSP is capable of producing 24-bit high-resolution audio. It is also a certified Dolby Digital decoder, providing incredibly realistic virtual 5.1 surround sound. It also supports virtual 7.1 channel audio input for immersive PC gaming sound.
  • Aurora reactive light system – The Sound BlasterX’s base is lined with 49 programmable LED lights from edge to edge. This Aurora Reactive lighting system comes in 16.8 million colours that you can fully customise.

Crisp and clear at all volumes, nice form factor. And rgb to complement any high end pc build. Fills the room better than expected. Not much of a drop off in volume at distance. Comes in to its own when the volume is higher. Remote control is meh, but frankly who cares.

Sounds fantastic and the range of inputs mean it’s really very flexible.

Good quality, easy to setup (i have it connected to my pc, my ps4, my phone through bt) and the sound is amazing and loud, cannot raise it too much otherwise the neighbours start knocking at my door :p.

Creative Sound BlasterX Katana Multi-Channel Gaming Soundbar – Bluetooth, AUX-in, USB FlashDrive, Headset-out, Mic-in, Optical-in, USB for PC, PS4, PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim – Black : I am comparing this sound bar with my existing harman/kardon soundsticks wireless bluetooth led desktop sound speaker system with twin satellite speakers. These i purchased in 2013 and they are still brilliant as the day i fitted them. So how does the creative katana match up. Well they are a lot simpler to install not requiring a sound card at all but plug straight into a usb port on the back of my pc. There are other options as the back of the sound bar has connections for optical, headphones, mic in and aux in as well as being able to plug a usb drive containing your own music or sounds. The system is sleek and fits nicely on my desk between my two monitors. Various settings allow for coloured lights to be displayed on the bottom of the sound bar – this is actually really nice and not at all tacky. The system comes complete with the sub-woofer and a remote control to enable or change most of the settings. There is also a desktop icon that will allow you to change various settings from you pc. Here you have access to the acoustic engine and can change the immersion effect as well as the equalizer and other effects.

If you don’t have a full amp and surround sound speaker setup, this could well be the answer you are looking for without breaking the bank. With stunning sound and enough volume to literally shake the windows, this is a beast of a sound bar. I tested this first with some pink floyd and almost wet myself with excitement. The sound is truly amazing, even without a dedicated sound card. Creative call this an under monitor audio system (umas). I think that’s a little optimistic, it’s more of a ‘sits a bit in front of a huge screen’. 1 setup, but with the clever design you get virtual 7. 1 which, although not perfect, does a surprisingly good job. Using the sound blaster connect software you can set up your audio profile using the equaliser and some other options.

If like me you’re after a sound bar that will make your desk look tidier, but you don’t want to compromise in terms of quality, this is the item for you. The build quality is amazing, it fits perfectly under my imac 27, allowing me to get rid of the big chunky speakers i had before and freeing up a lot of space on my desk. The subwoofer is also much smaller than my previous one. It’s expensive, but you pay for what you get.

Great item works well and sounds great.

Amazed by the sound out of it. Was looking to get rid of my cheap speaker to clean up on wiring and wanted something that i could use with putting headphones on. Compact so not much space taken up, software is ok and the lighting a bound.

This is a serious bit of kit, upon taking it out the vast packaging and studying al the various components the set up was quite straight forward. The lack of optical cable and a decent manual lead me to give it 4*. I’m not a technical minded sort of person and a good easy to follow booklet would have been appreciated. The optical cable i needed to connected my tv. Would have cost next to nothing and could so easily been added to the box in order that i didn’t have to travel the twenty four miles round trip to collect one from a well known store. The sound bar has a aurora reactive lighting system, where its base is lined with 49 programmable led lights from edge to edge. The aurora reactive lighting system comes in 16. 8 million colours for you to customise your ambience lighting effects to create your own unique profile that elevates your gaming and movie experience, should you wish. I however haven’t felt the need to customise the lighting and am quite happy with the colours that appear when it’s switched on. The sound bar is fantastic at enhancing my film watching, and music listening, it also supports bluetooth, aux input, optical input, usb flash drive, usb audio, mc-in, headset out, great value for money and well made, therefore it’s 4* from me folks.

Expensive impulse buy (wanted some better speakers for a small office). I was moving up from a basic but decent stereo speaker set up and the difference is night and day. I’m no audio expert but the sound is just gloriously rich and clean, the sub adds a lot of bass while the soundbar is just wow. I’ve read reviews for this praising its ‘wide soundstage’ etc and i can actually understand what they mean, it just fills the room with great sound. I was especially skeptical about 2. 1 producing surround sound but it works. This will be my main pc speaker for the foreseeable future. Have connected bluetooth and pc but haven’t tried any other connection options.

Why can’t i give six stars, or 11. This is the greatest sound device (for its size) that i have ever in my life come across. I was entirely blown away by its amazing output and the quality of it. Damn worth the high price for it, no doubt.

After many hours searching for new speaker for my pc i decided on this sound bar. I was sceptical as i have alway had a 5. 1 system but wanted to free up some desk space. I came from some older logitech 5. 1speakers and i have to say i’m impressed,it sounds fantastic as well as looking fantasticfeels really well made and the sound bar has a satisfying weight to it. ,the sub woofer is slim but delivers decent bass. The one downside i don’t like is the cheap remote supplied,it’s really cheap and nasty and at £250 surely a better remote could be bundled in.

Absolutely awesome, just like being at the cinema, the room shakes with the bass, adds a new dimension to any films you havepretty easy to set up especially if you have optical out on your tv, watching the second hulk film with them as i type this and it sounds incrediblei cannot recommend these enough, the lights i thought would distract but i don’t mind them and they can be turned off anyway, i am absolutely stunned at this incredible speaker system, i’m literally feeling like a 9-year-old​ watching the incredible hulk the incredible hulk [blu-ray [region free] fantastic. ]

I had to ditch my philips ambx after 6 years when it became faulty, there is nothing on the market now a days to compare for gaming and a lights show. The creative katana i chose, was to cut down on clutter, it is the first sound bar i have had, and it is very impressive. Great sound and very adjustable, especially the base mode. The lights are a very nice addition, but nothing like the ambx, but i knew that anyway. Although i would have liked to be able to have the lights change with the music, if that’s available i can’t find it on the downloaded software. As good as the sound is, there is still no definitive separation on the speakers, this is more noticeable on older music were they used the left and right channels a lot. Also noticeable on many games, so you don’t get the frightening weird noises from different directions the same. Good quality, feels good, i hope it last as long as my previous one. One annoying thing was the poor instructions, nothing to make it easy to set up, so could be a little annoying for a novice, thank god for youtube.

This speaker is nothing short of magnificent. The clarity that comes out of it is a thing of beauty and the bass is tight. I hate flimsy, loose bass and the sub that comes with it is anything but. I am a long time customer of creative all the way back into the 90s with their sound cards, although this is true i wouldn’t call myself bias as i’m open to all brands of electricals. Thing is, after all the fuss as*ing around trying everything else, creative never seem to let me down. What have you got to loose, give them a go. Hopfully you will begin your relationship with them and be glad you did just like me 😁.

Require a replacement for my old cambridge soundworks 5. 1 system, where the optical input was starting to play up and i found that the vast majority unsuitable (no optical input, bass speaker contains the controls etc) so when i saw this come out i was pleased. Now i’ve got it home i’ve found that it can take the place of my echo when i’m on my computer (a sensible logical add on) and the audio itself is good quality with little or no distortion (on occasions i’ve not realised it was playing as loud as it was until swmbo has buzzed me on the internal tele system, whoops). The only thing is that i haven’t found a way to imitate 5. 1 sound, with the old system it was literally push 2 buttons and it was there, even with the optical lead, not so with this even though some of the reviews imply you can. In real terms it was cheaper than my previous systemgood quality audio but as for it managing to create a 5. That just leaves the leds, don’t know what they’re supposed to do but they are colourful.

1 sound system, and though this is marketed as a 7. 1 under monitor sound bar(though you do have to be right in the sweet spot just above the sound bar to get the best 7. 1 and it does sound brilliant using it like this). It creates equally stunning 2. 1 audio hooked to the tv in the living room and thats what i bought it for. 1 stereo is not as good as a decent dolby 5. 1 surround set up but if like me you want a simple solution to upgrade from those tinny tv speakers they seem to put on every flatscreen.

Hands down the most clean sound i’ve ever heardworth the money and it really does get loud for its sizethe only down side that i had with this is that the remote came with a dead battery.

It took me a while to find a decent speakers for my gaming rig and i’m happy to tell you that i’m pleased with this soundbar at the begging i was skeptic but i was like ‘what the hell lets give a try’ and i do not regret my decision. The quality, sound and inputs that what i was looking for and i can tell you i would not change it for anything else. I can gladly recommend to anyone who is looking for some good gaming experience , movie watching and bass music. 6 star from out of 5 ,cheers.

Premium quality, really professional stuff.

Creative Inspire Surround Speaker System : Sounds great couple of small issues.

Great set of speakers, just a lot of wires which ive found difficult to conceal. Also the cables from the back of the sub to reach into the back of my pc are too short, could do with another 30cm of cable length.

Outstanding set of speakers for gaming and movies. These come near the top of the list for the search “5. 1 surround sound system” when the average customer review filter is applied and its not hard to see why: excellent quality of sound more than capable of filling my large bedroom at 25% maximum volume with a rich bass which really adds depth to the music and effects in games and movies yet, somehow, manages to stay contained in my bedroom. My previous system literally used to shake the house but did not produce bass with anywhere near the same quality of this set. You really need to experience these to get an idea of what reviewers are talking about. The mid-tones are crisp and clear and in games with quality voice acting it really is like someone else is in the room with you. For 60 quid this set really offers the best quality to value ratio unless you want to get into crazy money (who pays £800 for speakers anyway?). Things that weren’t clear in the description: you need either a motherboard or a sound card which supports 5. This will appear as a section on the back of your pc with 5 (or 6) multicolored holes which your earphones could plug into ( i.

Fantastic speakers with 95% of the features you will need. These speakers produce fantastic sound. Strong bass, nice mids and lively highs are provided by the 5 satellites and bass unit combo. I have tested this system using a multitude of sources including movies, music & podcasts and i can confirm that it performs well under all situations, not peaking until almost at the top of its level range.(the bass may be heard to peak slightly earlier, but that’s a given for a, system like this). The remote is good and a nice feature that allows very accurate control of level for the system as a whole. Well it would be nice for the remote to include 2 3. 5mm jacks for headphone out and line in for ipod etc as you currently have to either remove the lime green stereo jack from your sound card and plug it into your device or listen through your devices tiny speakers. Not the best ideapros:*nice sounding lows, mids and highs*great level without peaking*nice remotecons:*no headphone out/line in.

Good build, quality and bass. I am extremely happy and impressed by the quality of this system. You won’t find many better ones on the market for the same price range. There’s a good bass to the sub (obviously) and the speakers can reach a high volume with no distortion. The volume controller cable length is a good size but the 1. 8m cables for the rear speakers just about reach to where i need them without being pulled tightly. Luckily, i only have a small room but this wouldn’t be great in a larger room.

  • Enter your model number
    above to make sure this fits.
  • Creative DSE (Dual Slot Enclosure) delivers more mid bass and louder playback
  • Creative IFP (Image Focusing Plate) provides an even wider acoustic sweet spot
  • Down-firing ported subwoofer with bass level adjust to suit your preference
  • Distinctive front satellites that create a bold statement with smaller, accompanying rear
    and centre positional satellites for more discrete placement
  • Wired remote control with Power ON/OFF and volume control for convenience

Like i do on the ps3) this won’t work unless. Just be aware if you have red and white audio connections (e. Like i do on the ps3) this won’t work unless you buy this adapter logitech 970150-0403 – interface cards/adapterswhich i had to do so added 20 quid on the price.

These speakers are great for the price, the sound quality is amazing. If you play games like battlefield or call of duty you can hear where enemy’s are exactly which i have always needed a head set to do. The sub woofer is also very good and does not over power other sounds like when someone is talking and explosions are going off you can still hear them talking perfectly which my old speakers did not do. The only problem i have found with them is the volume control as to turn it up or down you have to move the little wheel on the controller however the slightest touch turns it way up or down so you have to try to move it with the tiniest nudge. Overall i would give this set a 9/10 for the price and sound quality. After using these speakers for a few days iv’e also noticed that the sub woofer is not as loud as other speakers iv’e used before. With other sets you would play music or something with explosions and hear the rumbling all over the house/garden, with this set even when its on quite loud you can barely hear any noise outside the room its in which is a huge plus. If your looking for a new set i would defiantly recommend these.

Explosive sound reproduction. Visually, this speaker system is a largely black, quality look with silver trim around the satellite speaker drivers. The front satellites are also larger than the rear and centre ones to increase visual appeal. Additionally, the system comes with a small volume control (wired) to allow you to turn the volume up/down/off/on. The sub-woofer is similar in spec to other sub-woofer designs on the market. The speakers and sub-woofer offer great portability due to size of the units in size, and can easily be placed anywhere without too much fuss. Unpacking and setting up the system is quick and painless and shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes. Simply arrange your speakers in the desired locations and then plug supplied cables to your sound card and that’s it. The unit comes with the audio cables handily already attached to the sub-woofer unit, meaning that you will never lose them. The speaker system features two new technologies: the “dse” (dual slot enclosure) and the “ifp” (image focusing plate).

Having had creative products in the past i know that they produce excellent quality stuff. This speaker system is no exception, the quality is fantastic. I chose these to go with my xbox one system and boy do they produce some top quality gaming experiences.Its not a straightforward connection though but this was solved with a dts/ac3 converter (about £40) utilising the spdif optical port from the xbox with no issues at all. However, the inline power/volume controller cable is very short, which is a bit of a hindrance, bt connectivity may be better but isn’t available with this kit.

1 surround sound systems about but creative’s new t6300 seems to be directly pitched against the logitech x-530 pc multimedia home theatre speaker system (and are also very similarly priced). As i’ve been using the x-530 system for the last few years i am well placed to compare the two and, after exhaustive testing (i lost count of the times i disconnected one system to reconnect the other over and over. ) i can say that they are both excellent systems but the subtle differences may steer you to choose one over the other. Let’s begin with build quality. I was disappointed with the creative’s in this respect as the materials seem rather lightweight and have a cheap feel about them (as opposed to the logitech whose speakers are heavier, more solidly put together and generally feel far more robust – particularly the subwoofer which is probably twice the weight). In particular the remote control of the t6300 is a particularly poorly built unit that – although works – has an indistinct feel to the on/off-volume wheel (and i actually question the practicality of a remote where the cable is shorter than the distance you’ll probably be sitting from the unit anyway). In terms of looks i think the creative’s are probably the better looking of the two (although curiously, unlike the logitech, the centre speaker also stands vertically which is easily remedied by laying it on its side).

Good build, quality and bass. I am extremely happy and impressed by the quality of this system. You won’t find many better ones on the market for the same price range. There’s a good bass to the sub (obviously) and the speakers can reach a high volume with no distortion. The volume controller cable length is a good size but the 1. 8m cables for the rear speakers just about reach to where i need them without being pulled tightly. Luckily, i only have a small room but this wouldn’t be great in a larger room.

Firstly let me say that acoustically these speakers produce a great sound as mentioned by other reviewers having in mind they are driven by a pc card for a small space. If i was to be critical i would say the sound lacks clarity in the higher frequencies. However, where the package is let down is in its design. The instructions also leave a bit to desired – they do not show nor explain why two speakers are larger than the other three. When it comes to setting up the ensemble the the cables are only long enough for a desk top layout and are much too short to be able to locate the cables, particularly to the rear speakers, neatly around the perimeter of the room rather than across it. The speakers are designed for sitting upright on something so it is not possible to fix them say to a wall. Ditto the remote which has too short a cable – i can’t even see the need for it anyway as all the other controls are on the screen. It seems that style has taken precedence over practicality. Those responsible for the design of these speakers have clearly not had to set them out in a real life situation nor use the minimalistic instructions.

Great sound system – one criticism. You might wanna buy some jack/cable extensions to go with this – it’s difficult to guess how far you’ll want to move your speakers around and you may find yourself short, this isn’t a criticism, just some advice that i’d give to anyone buying surround sound systems. One slight criticism – the speakers go into a standby mode if no sound is made for 15 minutes (this is intentional, i have read from the product makers website). That’s not really a problem if you even make the slightest sound like the click of a url at least once every 15 minutes. But if you’re away from keyboard for 15+ minutes – you’re not going to hear anything (like a message sound). Just something to be aware of.

Sounds great couple of small issues. . First for reference;everything plugs into the subwoofer, so plan cable lengths from there. Satallite speakers are all male rca connectors. Its designed to work with a computer and there are three 3. 5mm audio jacks, green/black/orange. Cable lengths:front speakers (left/right) : approx 1. 45mcentre speaker: approx 1. 6mrear speakers (left/right) speakers: approx 3. 7mwired remote control: approx 1. 5mpower cord from subwoofer: approx 1.

Great little sound system, does a good job and ideal for listening to music of films. Looks good and doesn’t take up too much room. The remote control is a useful included accessory.

Good quality sound, great system, just one minor niggle. I bought this speaker system as a replacement for an older creative inspire t6100 5. 1 system that i’d had for years and which finally gave up the ghost. I use a creative sound blaster zxr soundcard, have had a good experience with creative speakers in the past and this speaker system received good reviews elsewhere: clarity, depth, tonal definition. The way that i have set up my pc i currently only use 3. 1 (left, centre, right and bass woofer). I don’t play enough games or watch enough movies on my pc to really miss the rear speakers. The desktop speakers themselves are surprisingly light, but stable; i have no concerns about them toppling over, but they do move easily if knocked. I’m forever having to realign them. But then if i would let me twin boys sit on my desk to play lego games what can i expect, huhsound quality is great.

The sound quality and product is more than acceptable considering the price. The design is pleasing to the eye, the sound quality may improve in function who sound card you use. The only bad thing is that the wires from the rear speakers are a bit shorts. Good product, great seller,.

Decent set of budget 5. 1 compact speakers. . For just shy of £70 the creative inspire 6300 is a cracking set of 5. 1 surrounding sound speakers. The speakers come minimally and economically packed in the smallest possible box you could get all the components in. I’m not actually sure i would be able to get them all back into the box again without knowing exactly where they are each supposed to goyou get one subwoofer, surprisingly small in size but very much still capable, on top of this you have two small rear speakers, two large front speakers and one small front speaker and one inline remote control. Unlike other speakers systems i have purchased the speakers were not prelabelled with room positions, which led to some initial difficulty in setting them up. There are however two of the smaller speakers with significantly longer cables from them which i assumed were the back speakers. I also had difficulty working out how to plug it into my computers soundcard as unfortunately my soundcard is not colour coded. That is however not the speakers faultonce plugged in the sound quality is great considering the speaker size and cost, while not as nice as the sony sound system i have in my living room (which is around £200 more) they still play music and games at a decent level of quality. Just a few things to mention briefly, firstly these won’t be able to be plugged into a television or blu-ray/dvd player directly as your tv will likely have only one audio out.

Good set of surround speakers although i’m having trouble utilising. These are a thrill to have in your room, especially when they randomly make evil noises and give you a heart attackjokes aside, good set of surround speakers although i’m having trouble utilising two of the smaller ones. They do go really loud and the bass is good too no complaints and the evil noises is probably just a fault with this particular unit i received but i can live with it.

Speakers need adapter or doubd blaster. But it is problem because you need speaker adapter or sound blaster. I tryed to connect into laptop it is working only 2 speakers because in laptop only one speaker hole. And sound turn off itself after 20 min you need press sound bottom than again playing. I am not happy with this item.
