Creative MUVO 1c Portable Bluetooth Speaker -, Surprised by this great compact speaker

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.

The sound quality is very good and quite loud for a small speaker.

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?).

Comments from buyers

“fantastic
, Great Product
, Absolutely incredible!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Creative Sound Blaster FRee Portable Bluetooth Speaker – – Great stand alone unit

These speakers are great the sound is good.

I found the creative sound blaster free in an amazon warehouse deal for less than £18 and thought i would treat myself to a reputable brand name speaker for the price and mostly favourable review on amazon swayed me to its purchase. Initial impressions were good. The speaker feels pretty solid, has a nice weight to it – helps the overall sturdy feeling i had when handling it. It has some nice features, including an sd card port and (yay) shuffle mode toggle. I haven’t gotten far in my testing, however. When i started playing music via this speaker, regardless of whether it was via bluetooth or its auxiliary input, i could hear some of the deeper tones easily enough (though still not the really deep ones), but overall sound seemed tinny and lacked clarity across the tonal range. This was considerably improved upon when i used an equalizer, however, still not quite as good as some of the other speakers i’ve bought and i generally prefer to use the equalizer as a tool to fine tune a speaker, rather than to render it listenable to. If you don’t require its enhanced ruggedness, there are alternatives that sound much better right out of the box. Sound-wise, this was probably one of the two worst speakers i’ve recently tried (out of about 14, of which i kept 4) and was the reason why i chose to return it. I could have trialled it longer and ‘burn it’ in, but i felt it would have to take a small miracle to make it sound good without an extensive equalizer use.

Just got this today as it was on offer for 30. It is not amazing, it`s a good product but nothing from the ordinary. I have till now klipsch gig/kmc 1, sony srs x3, so 3 different speakers each with different wattage and sound so let’s say i can make a recommendation. The order in terms of sound quality:creative sound blaster – at low/mid volume you barely hear the low frequencies, but if you pump up the volume a bit you will get satisfactory results, not something that will blow your mind still decent for what you pay. Klipsch – you would expect to hear amazing top quality from speakers made by them, me personally i use them when i just need raw power. Sony – the sony one sounds better even than the 40w klipsch in terms of sound quality, still is just a personal preference so it might not apply to everyonein terms of build quality i would classify them pretty much the same, the only reason for which i bought this speaker is to enjoy some music during my breaks at work, there is one thing that i find not ok, the woofer from the back of the speaker is not shielded in any way so you might end up actually destroying your speaker in one day with a set of keys or something really sharp that will put pressure on the tiny woofer, so keep that in mind, specially if you tend to chuck things in your bag/backpack without looking. Features: i would have loved to have nfc, i miss this as i have it on all the speakers except the klipsch gig, the fact that you can pair your device near instantly is huge especially when you have 3 people arround that want to play some songs that they want to share with you. The apps that are present on google play do not bring nothing in terms of sound quality to the device, personally i use jet audio in my android devices where i have different dsp profiles which are improving to a certain level the quality of the sound. Portability: now this is where this speaker takes the big commend, compared to other speakers that i own, this is the lightest. Here are the specifications for the Creative Sound Blaster FRee Portable Bluetooth Speaker –:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • The Sound Blaster Free delivers powerful audio and enhanced bass response, despite its diminutive size, with its two
    custom-tuned 40mm Neodymium drivers and dual passive radiator design.
  • Take the Sound Blaster Free wherever you go for awesome wireless music on the move.
  • IPX4 certified -Its splash-proof, dualorientation form factor gives you the flexibility to use it vertically for 360 sound, or horizontally for great direct stereo imaging.
  • Multifunctional with versatile connectivity – Bluetooth 4.0 / microSD-card / USB audio streaming from PC or Mac
  • Battery life of up to 10 hours (varies with use, settings and environmental conditions).

Go back even a couple or more years and the thought of having a powerful sound emanating from small, portable speakers, let alone wireless capability would have been a wonder. To be fair it still is and many of the newer models still have the impact to surprise and for many new to portable speakers a sure wow factor if this is the first one tried. That’s part of the headscratcher – there are so many tune releasers to choose from and the price point is coming down significantly. So how does creative’s new sound blaster fare?it’s a robustish, multi position speaker – standing up like a pc speaker on its end and horizontally; stable enough in both positions. Volume, on/off and bluetooth connection are on one end, with three charge indicator lights whilst on the bottom / side is mini usb (cable included for charging), aux in, micro sd slot (nice touch for loading tunes but in reality probably not to be used by many) and buttons for play / pause, track selection, shuffle, mic on / off (can be used for hands free) and a loud button. Sound wise it’s just ok, nothing special, goes loud to carry a mid size room but really little to differentiate itself from either smaller speakers (try the excellent tdk a08 trek mini wireless speaker – black at a third of the current price of the creative and infinitely more portable. Quite where creative are pitching the sound blaster in a crowded market is questionable. Desk speaker with carry round home usability, yes, but an expensive option for that; take on hols or to the beach / park, yes, but smaller cheaper speakers do it better. . So ?despite the strong creative brand, a bit of a miss and not enough to differentiate from better value elsewhere.

Superbhave it for two years now and decide to share my opinion. Speaker has been dropped splashed with water,covered in mud, as i camp a lot. (it can be seen in the pictures below)made of good plastic. When i was buying a speaker i looked for good sound quality (bass and loud)and also the battery. To fully charge it tales about 3hrs. The battry lasts 8 hrs,listening non stop. Sound quality is the same if you were using bluetooth or sd card. I usually use this speaker when watching movies on my laptop via aux cable. A+++ would recommend it for all.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Portability/Sound at an affordable price
  • Surprisingly poor sound
  • Treble is good, bass is mediocre at best

Could write a long, and boring, review trying to show how much i know about sound quality. I’ll leave that to someone else. -never had a connection problem. -looks cool standing vertically or horizontally.

Good sound quality and bass. The controls from the speaker were important in helping me decide to buy it.

This is about the size of a beer can and appears very well made, being constructed of metal with a rubberised finish. Set-up is easy: simply press the bluetooth button and then search for the speaker on your device. The sound quality is brilliant, it has a good bass although the treble sounds a touch tinny. I guess for this price and size you are not going to have anything fantastic but it’s very good none-the-less. All the buttons are easy to locate and press and this has clearly been very well designed. Battery life seems good and the small, light unit is ideal for travelling. Another good feature are the audio notifications to let you know it’s been turned on and paired successfully. There is also a slot for sd cards and wired connection if you don’t want to use bluetooth.

I have a bose mini blue tooth speaker, and i tend to compare similar sized speakers such as this one to that – and they come off very badly i am afraid – lacking in bass and any definition of the sound. However the bose is more than twice the price of this one – so i know that is not really a fair comparison, and given this only puts out 2×4 watts, i think creative have done an ok job here with the spatialized loud button, and the bass ports. It is not high fidelity, or room filling sound – but it is a lot better than trying to listen via lap top or phone speakers and perfectly acceptable if you are listening to a speech podcast for instance. If you like some deep bass with you music you will need to look elsewhere. It is easy to use, paired easily with phones, and with pc/ lap top via the usb link. One area that it does score is the microsd slot – which means you don’t have to have your phone linked up. This works well if you want to load a card with few of your favourite tunes and play on random. Navigating a large card with lots of content but no screen can be difficult. You can skip between folders – but i found it tricky to work out the order it place the folders in. This is a nice looking unit – solid but not too heavy.

Thanks to the lightning deal, got it for a lesser price. However, great build quality and output.

I got it at the £30 price point and that represents good value. Sound and ease of use is good. Lack of a case/cover (which you really need) and any charger make it expensive and overpriced at the £70+ price point – especially as it has no screen display.

Good sound, loos good; overall great value for money.

I’ve not used all of the input options so far, just connection by bluetooth which was as simple as all other bluetooth connections. The sound is clean, clear and crisp and the volume is certainly enough to fill a room. I current have a beats pill and bose wireless speaker and there is minimal difference between this and those – the bose costing double the price. I love the fact it has a microusb input so you can put all the music you want on it and leave it play, no draining of phone/laptop battery – however, i’ve not had the speaker on long enough to test it’s full battery capacity. Over all this a very nice, well built speaker that produces a good sound – the power ballads were blasting out in the week. A good price for a good device.

Very impressed with quality ,and performance.

What lets you down, is there is no display to show where the player is looking for music or what is connected to the bluetooth. More like a good quality toy than a music system.

Brilliant sound and for a brilliant price.

I’d say i have average ears, am certainly not an audio expert, but am surrounded (pun intended) by wireless/bluetooth speakers, big boys like bose and sonos, and more portable bose, jabra solemate, and the £10 very portable ‘fun’ end of the bluetooth speakers. The sound blaster has been reviewed with these other products in mind, and generally it works well, but is not outstanding in all areas. There are many other products worthy of consideration in this price bracket. In the box/set up===========the speaker comes with:minimal pictorial set up instructions (12 languages),a short usb cable with a micro usb connector to plug into the speaker and standard usb to 5v plug into a charging adapter or pc/mac. (but no usb plug, mini stereo cable, nor any storage case/cover)if you’ve used blue tooth speakers before its probably pretty obvious how to set it up, if not more comprehensive instruction could be helpful, and are available on the company web site. There is no screen so a series of beeps informs you the speaker on, connected etc. There are three connection methods1. Bluetooth to phones, tablets, pcs2. 5mm ‘in’ socketa nice touch and some thing which differentiates it from the competition is a microsd card slot taking cards upto 32gb (the little ones which go in phones) plays mp3, wav and flac files. So forget doggy bluetooth connections, and running down your device battery, down load your party music on to an sd card and off you goblue tooththe speaker connects to many devices by blue tooth and paired easily with a samsung phone, tablets, ipad4 and mac. Just press and hold the bluetooth button for 2 seconds to put in pairing mode, ‘sound blaster free’ comes up on the device to pair and connect. Usbthe speaker can be directly connected to a pc using the supplied usb cable, no bluetooth connection required. It’s also recommended to download soundblaster software onto pc/mac, (win 7-8.

I am impressedi wasn’t expecting much when i saw this speaker, as i’ve tested several different bluetooth speakers and many are disappointing, either being too quiet, too tinny, or poor quality sound in general. I am not one for reading instructions so i just charged it up and got going. I found it relatively intuitive. You simply press the power button to turn it on and hold down the bluetooth logo to pair it with a device. I gave it to my boyfriend to use and he didn’t know how to use it and couldn’t figure it out, so perhaps some may resort to reading the instructions (which admittedly when i looked at them, weren’t very comprehensive nor helpful). There was no delay in pairing the device, all you do is go to the device you wish to use and select ‘free speaker’ then the music begins. I used it with my imac, iphone and ipad. All paired quickly and easily every time. The sound quality is very impressive.

 kindly sent to me for review this is a good looking bluetooth speaker that offers a wide range of connectivity options. It comes in black or white (you’ll see the white option in the video review) and it looks great. It’s made from plastic so doesn’t have the premium feel of some speakers, but still looks good in either position, it can lie horizontally or stand vertically. Where the free differs from other bluetooth speakers is in the range of connectivity options, as well as bluetooth you have an aux in, usb (which can be used with a pc/laptop) and a microsd card slot, meaning you don’t need to connect this to anything to play music. The microsd option is especially handy if you want to listen to music but don’t want to drain your phones battery. It’s compact design makes it ideal to carry around and it’s ipx4 certification means it’ll survive the odd splash if out and about or in the kitchen. Sound quality is fairly good, the free can easily fill a room with music and, if connected to your mobile, will interrupt the music if you get an incoming call. The sound blaster marketing team say it has a deep bass, but compared to other speakers this didn’t seem to be the case, however it has a respectable sound that would be perfect for a student room or when travelling around. Good all round speaker that offers a great range of connectivity options.

Bloody good music sound blaster it’s a pity didn’t have it long enough got stolen the music that came out of this device was unbelievable it was so handy to carry it around whenever i needed to listen to my music.

Creative MUVO Mini Pocket-Sized Weather Resistant Bluetooth Wireless Speaker – Get it

Pairing with other devices is a breeze and the battery life from full charge is as advertised. Not sure if the volume controls on the device serve a purpose because the unit only responded from increasing the sound volume on the source item. I could have tried source volume to the max then used the muvo controls but. Anyway the sound level was acceptable and i do like the product.

Good bit of kit, great to use in the shower (as water resistant). It’s surprisingly loud for its size (packet of biscuits) and well worth the £40 i paid for it. I would consider buying another one so we have one available for both the kids. I originally looked at the bose soundlink mini ii, but the additional £130 is quite simply not worth it for me – also the fact this is waterproof and has nfc is a big factor.

The sound quality is great, it charges quite quickly, and lasts for hours. If you’re after an affordable speaker don’t look elsewhere, unless you have the spondoolies for the bose of course ;).

Sound is better than tv quality but not as good as high fi. Pros tiny sixegood volume for such a small devicelong battery lifewaterproof – baths more musicalv easy to connect with nfclightning price was thirty quid.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Creative MUVO Mini Pocket-Sized Weather bluetooth speaker
  • Great value, great sound, great battery!
  • Quality audio from a compact unit.

The volume for the size is amazing. Great build quality and sound quality is as good as you could get for a device this size, very well balanced and great bass tones for the size. Great to have a device like this that’s so conveniently sized and packs a real punch.

I have to agree with all the positive comments, i bought this for the bathroom and leave my mobile in the bedroom works fine, also attached a mp3 player through jack socket and that works well too, the sound is really good for the size of the unit, the pressing of the bluetooth button for a couple of seconds actually tells you, what battery life is left, which is a useful touch. The volume works only on things attached via bluetooth, it wouldn`t adjust when anything attached through the jack socket, you have to to do this on the actual player.

The best thing i have ever bought. Maybe a slight exaggeration but it is definitely up there with the best, i love it. Stylish, looks good, decent sound quality. Well worth the money and i would highly recommend.

I shopped around for some wireless speakers. I did my research and reviews suggested that this was the best of the cheaper range (for the amount i planned on using speakers, i wasn’t willing to pay over £100). This arrived in a small package and was immediately ready to go. It was easy to connect by bluetooth or by nfc. It’s literally holding down a button on the device and searching for it on the device you want to connect. The sound is great indoors and outside. It charges quickly and it’s easy to find out battery info. The only difficulty i had was disconnecting my wife’s phone and getting my music to play. You have to turn the device off and back on. It wasn’t a big issue and is easy now, but took me a while to figure out.

Very good speaker, paired it to my phone via nfc very easily. Sound quality is very good, the base response is not overwhelming it’s just right and the speaker is very loud for such a small bluetooth unit. Only slight distortion at max volume is very impressive indeed. It’s well made and looks good also. The only downside was when i plugged it into my phone using an aux cable, it was really quiet and the volume control on the speaker does not function. You have to raise the volume via the main device, and this is the problem. It doe not go very loud unless your device has a massive volume range. On my tv i use the built in speakers at 15, using the speaker i had to use 45 to get the same result. On my phone or tablet using a cable is disappointing in comparison. That is the only fly in the ointment.

Hard wearing, good sound quality speaker. Bought to use whilst renovating a house. After weeks of paint splatter, dust and sawdust its still working great. Only slight niggle is the bluetooth connection isn’t the strongest. Will work whilst in other rooms but can blip in and out of signal.

Incredible sound for such a small device the quality of both the device and the sound is impeccable, i opened it 5 minutes ago and am now listening to music and i’m so in love.

Smaller than i expected (actual dimensions are: – 190 x 37 x 59 mm). Very good sound quality for the size. Initial problem with distance from my laptop, but after pairing with my phone, found the age of my laptop (and hence the built in bluetooth adaptor) was the likely source of the problem. Easy to pair with devices (laptop and phone, no problem).

My 17 year old son is so happy with this speaker, battery staying charged for 3 evenings with his mates, impressed by how loud it goes without distortion and he loves his bass. Fantastic value and a big hit in our house.

I bought this primarily to take on holiday, however we are happily use it all the time at home in the garden, garage etc. Sound quality is excellent, as good as speakers costing twice as much. Bluetooth is good rarely losing the signal.

For the price you really can’t complain. Bought this to take on holiday after using a friends bose sound link mini. Sound is clear and crisp, really lightweight product. At high volumes it distorts slightly but for £38 compared to £150 for the bose, easy choice.

I am highly satisfied with this product. , the speaker is really great. It’s rather small and light, but still boosts sound greatly which is important for me since i travel a lot. It’s very straightforward and uncomplicated to use. The battery life is decent and it charges up pretty fast. All in all i would recomment this product.

Bought this nearly two years ago and it still works as new. Battery lasts ages and charges quickly as well. Really loud and can get wet and is still fine.

Have had this a few weeks now and the quality is superb, battery life is good – recently went on my gold dofe expedition and had it playing most of the time we were walking and the battery died on day 3. It is actually waterproof like it claims and have took it in the shower and it’s fine. For the price i would highly recommend, especially compared to other products out there like the beats pill.

This is a nice solid well built unit, smaller than i was expecting but a big smooth sound for the size. The high frequncies are nice and clear while you also get good tight bass. One major disappointment though is that the built in volume buttons only work with a bluetooth source but not with anything plugged into the aux socket. So if you’re using the aux input, you have to adjust the volume on the unit which is playing the audio and not on the muvo mini. I’m not sure of this is a fault with my unit or if it’s a design oversight. For the price though this is a quality piece of kit.

A great portable speaker which produces very good sound for its size. I have also found the battery life and range of the unit very impressive. I would definitely recommend this speaker to others.

Creative Woof 3 Portable Bluetooth Mini Speaker : Works well for what it is. Easy to pair and use, surprisingly robustly made, just don’t expect dynamic sound.

I’ve had a fair few portable speakers over the years abd i’ve he really been happy. The x mini which i had before (both single and pair) were connectable via a wire so having a properly bluetooth portable speaker is a novelty. This speaker is really well built and feels weighty so is good for use outdoors and won’t tip over though i guess some might argue it isles easy to lug about. I think both the look and weight of the speaker are really great. Sound wise – it does deliver a great quality sound for a unit which is a little bigger than your fist. Really easy to connect either by bluetooth or by normal jack and takes a few hours to charge giving around 5 hours play at full volume.

This speaker really could be summed up in one word – wow. The price, the build quality, the performance, everything just excels, but i shall go into more detailsmy first impression when getting this out the box was the build quality, yes it is a fingerprint magnet but the quality of the materials and finish is very high indeed. Lovely metal surround and great quality buttons. Before using i charged this up. I’m not sure how long this took as i left it over night. My first test was to link my nexus 6p to it and play a dance tune from spotify. I hit the volume up to the max and was amazed by the quality. Ok, it isn’t going to blow a sonos or bose speaker out the water, but for the difference in price that wouldn’t be a fair comparison. The bass was good, the mid range and treble were good and it wasn’t distorting. At normal listening volumes the quality is really very good indeed.

Creative Woof 3 Portable Bluetooth Mini Speaker with Built-in Microphone – Chrome

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Four-way music playback – Bluetooth, 3.5mm AUX-in cable,USB audio and microSD
  • Great sound with bass that you can feel
  • Integrated music player that supports multipe audio formats
  • Built-in microphone for voice calls
  • Up to six hours of battery life

It’s no larger than a fist and easily fills the room. I ordered the red one and it perfectly matches out red kitchen equipment. It certainly isn’t cheap to look at or hold. Pairing to an iphone was very quick, in fact it was much faster than airplay has ever been, and controlling the device from the phone can be done in the music app. It’s much heavier than i expected, which i’ve taken as a sign of quality. The sound really is very pleasant, so long as you don’t max the volume, and it’s far better then the cheaper mini speakers we’ve had recently. Whilst a traditional fan of bowers & wilkins equipment, i’m impressed with what £30 buys and i look forward to using this in the house or garden. In the box came the unit and a decent usb cable for charging. Most of the packaging was recyclable too.

This is a really lovely looking little speaker. Mine’s silver and white and visually goes nicely with my ipad. The chrome parts are real metal and the speaker feels surprisingly weighty and solid. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is. The chrome finish does attract fingerprints though. I have a few bluetooth speakers and this one connects the fastest of them all and is the only one i own that keeps on playing music smoothly through my entire house, no matter how far it is from my ipad. You get clear voice confirmations when connecting. I like the controls on the speaker for skipping tracks back and forward, playing and pausing, and changing the volume. The big button on the top is easy to find when you want to answer a phone call, and the built in mic works fine.

Pleasingly small and elegant, it connects quickly and has a good battery life. Maximum volume is not much to write home about, however and the sound quality is a little tinny, but for the price, it’s a pretty good unit.

Creative Woof 3 Portable Bluetooth Mini Speaker with Built-in Microphone – Chrome : This is excellent sound with variable uses. Works out of the box simple and quick for those who might have difficulty with technology.

When i opened this i was surprised by just how small it is – it will sit on your palm and is like a small upturned bell shape – but it works well. Firstly, i like creative audio products because the sound engineering is normally pretty good, and whilst this is a small device and speaker it works for the purpose of social music in an informal setting with friends and/or for just boosting the music from your phone or for holding a conference call style conversation. It’s quality as ever with creative, quite heavy solid feel, chrome finish with nice white touch moulded plastic – it looks and feels strong and tough. The speaker is on the top and it is meant to be listed to from above it – in promo shots its on the sand with people sitting around chatting and it’s perfect for this type of environment, where you want a quick simple quality speaker for some tunes whilst holding chatting with friends. It pairs quick and easy and give a voice command that it is ready for pairing. I paired with my windows nokia lumia and played via spotify easily enough, then when a text came in cortana cut in and announced i had a text and by conversing through the speaker as mic it read the text out. Equally when a call comes in it cuts the music and you can hold the conversation by using the mic function. When you finish and the call goes it picks the music back up again – very good and handy. 5′ input (no cable)charger port and cablesd card sloton/off underneatha neat little speaker that wont win audio awards but perfect for what it is meant to be for – informal music and or monitor from the phone/tablet.

♦ introduction ♦the woof 3 comes in a simple transparent box showing off the main speaker inside. I received the chrome version which looks great, until it’s handled as it’s an utter fingerprint magnet. The speaker is very compactly sized, measuring in at just 7. 8cm and has a nice weight to it also, this combined with the decent grip given by its rubber feet (plastic cover needs removing on both feet) allows the speaker to hold its ground when in use. ♦ box contents ♦∙ speaker. ∙ micro usb cable (for charging and usb audio). ♦ set-up & use ♦there are various ways to use this speaker:∙ bluetooth. ∙ auxiliary (aux cable not included). ∙ micro usb (cable included; port also used for charging)∙ microsd (memory card not included; support both mp3 & flac formats). The power switch is located on the base of the speaker, when this is switched on (providing there’s battery charge left), will automatically go into bluetooth mode. To switch to any other mode, a cable or memory card must be inserted, then press the centre button located on top. I personally would like to see either a different led colour depending on the mode, or at least the speaker to tell you.

This creative woof 3 portable bluetooth speaker provides excellent sound quality that defies its diminutive size. Pairing it with my kindle fire was straight forward and problem free. And i now use it mainly to listen to audio books while in bed. Its small footprint means it takes up very little space on my already crowded bedside table. It has a surprisingly strong bass which makes voices sound resonate and more realistic than out of more tinny sounding speakers. Music sound decent enough on it too. With the volume up a little it easily fills our bedroom, without distortion, and i can even hear it clearly from the bathroom. As a small compact, portable speaker its bang on.

Not too keen to connect to my iphone, takes at least three attempts. Sound quality good for the size and size was the important factor for me as i want it to go travelling. 99 speaker from aldi that sounds just as good and connects to my phone instantly.

The sound from this speaker may be mono, but it’s really surprisingly deep and detailed considering its size. Of course, there are the usual 3. 5mm jack and bluetooth connection methods, and these work fine. The big differentiator however, is the built in microsd card slot, which lets you play music directly form the speaker with no external input – great if you want to set up a discrete unit set up to play your fave christmas tunes, or dinner party music, keeping your phone available for calls. The cast metal shell is hefty, and gives it an amazing feeling of solidity and quality. It really does look the business. I think it helps reduce reverberations too. Too many flimsy, plastic shelled speakers begin to hum and buzz when the volume is turned right up.

Nice compact size well made with cool looks. Don’t expect ‘gary boy’ style bass but it is there tight and defined. I mainly use this in my car where volume levels are more than adequate. Connection with my chinese doogee phone was easy and so far charge life is good, bearing in mind i am only using it maybe 2-3 hours a week.

Had many products from creative labs, sorry now just hip ‘creative’, over the years, and all have delivered. This little beast continues the trend. Cute on the eye, looks quite inoffensive, then you power it up.

Loving the sound of this in work so much that i’m going to have to buy another one.

This is replacing a stolen one.

I’ve tried a number of bluetooth speakers over the years but mostly from unknown brands so was looking forward to trying this as creative have long had a reputation for quality sounding products. Packaging is standard clear plastic affair but thankfully its not the clamshell type that is a pain to open. Out of the box i was surprised at the high level of quality for the price, the speaker is weighty without being heavy and metal bodied with a lovely finish. The first annoyance is after switch on, the unit announces loudly that its in pairing mode ready to connect, why it has to say this so loud is beyond me and every time it grates. I found that the unit paired easily with an iphone for bluetooth but my oneplus one impossible, i’ve never had any issues connecting my phone to any bluetooth device before (probably used about 20 different things) so this is a concern. In use the unit provides decent sound, i was particularly impressed by the treble, and depth of sound is good for this type of product and particularly this process point. 5 stars, 4 is generous and 3 a little stingy.

Brilliant speaker and sounds as great as any larger speaker. Comes with a charger cable which can go in any usb port such as electricity or via laptop. Just go to settings on your phone to ‘bluetooth match’ and it is synched. If someone phones you while your music is on you just speak them through the speaker. I believe it comes in other colours.

This is a beautiful piece of work. Gorgeous lines, heavyweight steel, compact size. I have it on my desk (makes a great paperweight) and i just sit and admire it before switching it on. So yes, performance – how does it do?well, it was incredibly easy to set up, i switched it on, put my phone into bluetooth mode, scanned and there it was. The volume can be altered by two small buttons or from your device. And the volume is enough to fill a reasonable size domestic room, although not a church hall or classroom. The sound is very crisp and clear, especially in higher frequencies and with solo voices or acoustic recordings. However, the bass response is quite weak and for more rock oriented music, makes it sound quite dull and flat. However, this is going to be ideal for taking with me when i travel as it is so compact and the sound quality is more than good enough to take away the sterile silence of a hotel room.

The creative woof 3 is one of the most aesthetically looking bluetooth speakers on the market. The chrome surrounds gleams and it looks worth much more than its asking price. Sadly judging this book by it cover is a mistake. Having listened to weather report’s ‘birdland’ on it left you with the impression that jaco pastorious had left the band. The bass is on deep background and the treble is on the shrill side. As a functional small speaker, it cuts the mustard but there are better products on the market and ultimately you would be better advised to save your pennies and purchase the excellent bose soundtouch.

Its very compact – it really does fit in the palm of your hand. Feels and looks robust and well built. It is suprisingly heavy for its size. Very easy to operate and synchs without issue to my bluetooth enabled devices. Sound quality is very good considering its size.

This portable speaker is only £30 so part of me thinks that for that amount of money, what can you expect?. The other part of me thinks that i’m old schwool: i have a rotel amplifier and mission speakers (plus a separate cd player) and i’m used to hearing music on decent quality systems, so why should i say something is good when i know it’s average at best?for £30 the all-important sound quality is reasonable. It lacks range and bass but if you’re the kind of person who is used to listening to music on your phone, you may not notice that anyway. If you’re a real music lover and you have proper separate audio equipment and you think music deserves to be listened to, not just put on as background music, then this really isn’t for you. The build quality actually seems half decent, surprisingly made out of metal. It’s lightweight and about the size of half a can of soft drink. The battery lasts more or less the advertised time. Pairing this up is easy, the functions work as expected and the music sensibly drops when you receive a call, then restores itself. So it all works as expected. It really all comes back to how you consume your music.

This is a very solid and well built speaker. It’s small dimensions are not reflected in it’s weight which has a nice quality feel about it – this also has the advantage as well as when it is plugged into the micro usb cable to recharge it does not move around either. Sound is okay, i would not use it as the main speaker for a desktop system or for primary audio at a party but for out in the garden, in the garage etc it is great. The primary issue i see is due to it’s weight it is unlikely that i will travel with it for use when away however that is purely my opinion and others may differ. In short a nice usint that would also make a nice gift and at the £29. 95 price at time of writing is a bit of a bargain.

Creative MUVO Mini Pocket-Sized Weather Resistant Bluetooth Wireless Speaker : owned this for a year and think it’s really good value. Given its size and price

Absolutely love this, i ordered it with prime now, as i was in the city at the weekend, during a busy period at work. I was getting so bored i decided to order a speaker, this one was a good choice, plenty loud enough to fill the area in my office, kept me going through at work. Took the speaker on holiday too, and its really really good. Watching films in the hotel room on tablet, with the tablet volume lacking, this was perfect, watched a new film each night.

Kicks out a very decent sound. True you couldn’t play music for a party through it.

Smaller than i expected (actual dimensions are: – 190 x 37 x 59 mm). Very good sound quality for the size. Initial problem with distance from my laptop, but after pairing with my phone, found the age of my laptop (and hence the built in bluetooth adaptor) was the likely source of the problem. Easy to pair with devices (laptop and phone, no problem).

I shopped around for some wireless speakers. I did my research and reviews suggested that this was the best of the cheaper range (for the amount i planned on using speakers, i wasn’t willing to pay over £100). This arrived in a small package and was immediately ready to go. It was easy to connect by bluetooth or by nfc. It’s literally holding down a button on the device and searching for it on the device you want to connect. The sound is great indoors and outside. It charges quickly and it’s easy to find out battery info. The only difficulty i had was disconnecting my wife’s phone and getting my music to play. You have to turn the device off and back on. It wasn’t a big issue and is easy now, but took me a while to figure out.

  • Quality audio from a compact unit.

Creative MUVO Mini Pocket-Sized Weather Resistant Bluetooth Wireless Speaker with NFC – Red

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Bluetooth wireless speaker with NFC for fuss free connectivity
  • IP66 certified for dust and water protection
  • Shockingly loud stereo audio from two full range micro drivers
  • Oversized front bass radiator delivers big speaker bass from a compact size
  • Answers your calls with speakerphone teleconferencing capability

Suprisingly loud and filling speaker for the size and price. Sound quality is excelent and on par with far more expensive options such as the beats pill. The speaker is light and the waterproofing is an added bonus for outdoors or parties where drinks can be spilt. Bass is also pretty good and even better once tweaked on your device. Overall, its worth spending the extra money to get this fantastic speaker rather than cheaping out completely on a £20 speaker.

Excellent sound, not too basey. I’ve had the speaker about a month now and mainly listen to classical, which is much clearer sounding than my galaxy e tab speaker. Not sure it is necessary to have a ‘speaker on’ announcement every time i switch it on, which annoys me.

Very good speaker, paired it to my phone via nfc very easily. Sound quality is very good, the base response is not overwhelming it’s just right and the speaker is very loud for such a small bluetooth unit. Only slight distortion at max volume is very impressive indeed. It’s well made and looks good also. The only downside was when i plugged it into my phone using an aux cable, it was really quiet and the volume control on the speaker does not function. You have to raise the volume via the main device, and this is the problem. It doe not go very loud unless your device has a massive volume range. On my tv i use the built in speakers at 15, using the speaker i had to use 45 to get the same result. On my phone or tablet using a cable is disappointing in comparison. That is the only fly in the ointment.

Pairing with other devices is a breeze and the battery life from full charge is as advertised. Not sure if the volume controls on the device serve a purpose because the unit only responded from increasing the sound volume on the source item. I could have tried source volume to the max then used the muvo controls but. Anyway the sound level was acceptable and i do like the product.

Not that loud and mediocre bass. It’s not pocket sized, unless that pocket is a wizards sleeve.

Brilliant, excellent sound quality for a reasonable price. Delivered next day with amazon prime.

Had this for a while now and had been pretty satisfied with it, decent sound, good range (have been 15m away in line of sight and still connected ) and excellent battery life. Today however it has let me down, ran it for a few hours on full volume (work radio on the blink) and it now sounds like it’s blown a speaker, vibrating and tinny now at anything above half volume. Great little speaker in small spaces but by no means a party speaker as advertised in some places.

This is ideal if your not so worried about changing tracks from the speaker, you want balanced sound good enough to play folk, jazz, classical, reggae, dnb, edm has good highs & mids. The bass isn’t going vibrate walls but it can be clearly heard from another room. Well made & the battery will last through out the day at half volume which is sufficient for clear listening. Will connect to ios android & windows devices & thee bluetooth range is pretty good.

Hard wearing, good sound quality speaker. Bought to use whilst renovating a house. After weeks of paint splatter, dust and sawdust its still working great. Only slight niggle is the bluetooth connection isn’t the strongest. Will work whilst in other rooms but can blip in and out of signal.

Simple to use and produces a fairly good sound. It could be louder at times but you’d probably need to pay more for a better speaker if you want that. I’ve not tested the weather proof aspect of it yet though.

It’s a great speaker compared with my phone but i find it lacks with volume.

It’s alright, but compared to my creative muvo 10, it’s smaller(obviously), a lot quieter, sound quality is about the same maybe a fraction better and the muvo 10 is pretty much splash proof anyway. I’ve left the 10 outside in the direct rain all night and has come into contact with enough mud; so unless youre planning to take something into the water or just need the smaller size, there is no point buying this and would strongly reccomend the muvo 10.

Incredible sound for such a small device the quality of both the device and the sound is impeccable, i opened it 5 minutes ago and am now listening to music and i’m so in love.

The speakers project a nice and full sound. The build quality is excellent and very easy to use. Pairing up with our bluetooth phones and ipods is very quick and easy. I purchased it in red so that its asy to find when the kids leave it laying around in the garden. Not sure if they are loud enough for a garden party but certainly adequate and loud enough for everyday use.

I have to agree with all the positive comments, i bought this for the bathroom and leave my mobile in the bedroom works fine, also attached a mp3 player through jack socket and that works well too, the sound is really good for the size of the unit, the pressing of the bluetooth button for a couple of seconds actually tells you, what battery life is left, which is a useful touch. The volume works only on things attached via bluetooth, it wouldn`t adjust when anything attached through the jack socket, you have to to do this on the actual player.

My 17 year old son is so happy with this speaker, battery staying charged for 3 evenings with his mates, impressed by how loud it goes without distortion and he loves his bass. Fantastic value and a big hit in our house.

Good bit of kit, great to use in the shower (as water resistant). It’s surprisingly loud for its size (packet of biscuits) and well worth the £40 i paid for it. I would consider buying another one so we have one available for both the kids. I originally looked at the bose soundlink mini ii, but the additional £130 is quite simply not worth it for me – also the fact this is waterproof and has nfc is a big factor.

Good product and decent sound quality. I chose the red one and it is quite nice. For the price i paid it is worth.

Creative T3150 Wireless – Great for tv on the computer!

Silly place to stick the bluetooth on switch though on back of sub woofer. But once its on just leave it on. And turn it off on your phone etc. To stop the light flashing on vol. Overall,better sound than the tv speakers it is what it is. Cheap alternative to improve your crap tv speakers.

Not very loud but good quality.

Worth every penny i paid,love it.

Not loud enough to piss off my neighbours.

So it seems creative and i have very different opinions on what constitutes ‘wireless’from the picture, i expected the satellites to be wireless; they are not. They’re wired to the woofer; and the ‘remote’ is also wired in. What i was excited about around getting these sent, was the idea that i could hook them up to my pc and there would be no wires dangling down the back of my glass desk – and that i could place the two satellites anywhere on it. In this respect, it was a let down, as it looks no different aesthetically to my previous set, and you are limited to where you can place the set due to their (not very generous) wireshowever – i’m still thrilled with them, because despite this ‘issue’, the sound quality (for their mid-range price tag) is excellent; lovely clear sound, strong but not distorting bass, and trying several different styles of music all produced the same high quality. Their ‘wireless’ aspect comes in with the ability to connect them, via bluetooth, to any bluetooth device: my smart phone, tablet and laptop all worked brilliantly with it; no fuss no farce – so i can see it having great potential for someone who uses their phone to play music and wants something better than the usual docks – or something more versatile. If youre choosing it to keep your desk wire-free or want more ‘placement freedom’. Maybe consider other options (though the sound quality is an excellent tradeoff. And i guess means you wouldn’t have to keep buying batteries or recharging the satellites).

Amazing sound, range, bluetooth functionality works pretty well and the price is the best. They’re not the most portable speakers, but they not huge.

  • Decent speaker set but lacks bass adjustment
  • Great sound – but wired volume control annoying
  • Not bad

The best speakers i have invested in. I have placed these above the kitchen cabinets with the power and aux threaded down the back (note: did have to cut plug off and attach new one as you cannot detach it from the plug or subwoofers side. They sound great when plug my phone in and even over bluetooth. Bass excellent, so crisp and clear, very loud. Did have to put volume on max on the controller thing because i could not thread it down the side of the cupboard, i just control the volume from phone.

These speakers did wonder for me. I was looking for wireless speakers with good sound quality and these speakers ticked checked all the check boxes.

Great piece of kit good quality.

Bluetooth works well, sound is clear and bass booms.

Pros: (important) nice sound (at least it was good for me). No energy-saving mode (pretty annoying). Bluetooth & aux input (these can be played together)cons: no headphone output. Pairing button at back of the subwoofer (doesn’t matter because i don’t use bluetooth often, but would be problem for someone who does), cannot unplug remote(doesn’t really matter, too) and aux input cable. Aux input plug looks really cheap (was very loose for some devices – my galaxy s7. Worked well for my surface pro 4, though). Two satellite speakers connected together, and plugged by one 3. 5mm trs jack, which is really short. 5 metres?)but anyway, sound isn’t bad.

Great sound, great product, worth the money.

This product have cables not like in the picture.

Amazing speakers for the price .

Great sound and powerful bass.

I am really pleased to have made this purchase, having umm’d and arh’d for ages over what to buy as a replacement for an old cambridge sound system which had died. The feature that tipped the balance for me was the bluetooth connection for my laptop pc, to avoid direct cabling – and it worked fine, straightaway, hassle-free. The sound is good enough for my ears, with decent bass from the subwoofer and clarity in the higher tones. Perhaps it would benefit from a separate volume control for the woofer, but i’ve not really needed it. Excellent value for money and a satisfyingly decent product.

My dad bought these speakers for his computer and i loved them so much i bought some for my bedroom. Perfect bass (coming from someone who adores bass more than the actual music) and perfect for sitting on my drawers. Listen to music while i sleep sometimes and the sound is still amazing and crisp at a low and high volume. Can’t beat the quality for the price. 😍 recommend to any teen wanting speakers for their bedroom, absolutely perfect.

Stream music wirelessly from most stereo Bluetooth devices

Speakers themselves are excellent, however this item arrived with two of the legs snapped off so not the greatest but couldn’t be arsed sending it back and it costing me more money, if it hadnt been for that i would give speakers 5 stars they are excellent sound is amazing.

Very good value for money, great speaker.

Plugs straight into your tablet, great. Plug speaker into the mains socket and we’re away. The sub is good quality for the price. There is no adjustment for the sub, so just ‘pump up the volume.

I bought these as a warehouse deal so i am ‘ok’ with them for the price. The sound is pretty good (i’ll spare you the audiophile mumbo-jumbo) and they get loud without distorting. My biggest gripe is the lack of bass control. The bass by default is pretty heavy. Most speaker systems at this price range will have a simple treble/bass knob or something along those lines. That means if you cant eq the sound youre sending to the speakers, you will have to deal with inaccurate amounts of bass. I hooked up my tv to these and the bass was so disproportionate that it made calm scenes (e. If you love bass and will only listen to music, these are for you. If you can eq your source and can get these sub £40, i’d say do it. Otherwise look for something with adjustable bass.

Okbut sound quality was not the bestof course not the sellers fault, it’s just with this modela week later i sold it and bought a creative inspire s2 wireless which was just the product i wanted with very good sound quality.

I have had these speakers for quite a while now and i love them. They are great value for the price. I use them to play music from my phone and to bluetooth to my laptop when i am watching the tele.

IFP (Image Focusing Plate) improves sonic directivity and imaging

Good built quality, sound is rich, maybe too much base. Remote control is wired, bluetooth has decent range and can be turned off, if you wanna just use a 3. In summary, don’t waste your money on tiny speakers for 20£. This is entry level for a normal working 2.

The only thing i’m not fully happy with is that every time you turn it on, you have to click on the wireless button (in the subwoofer) to pair with it. It would be better if it would automatically pair with the last paired device.

Bluetooth randomly disconnects from my ipad in mid song. Pretty sure it’s not the ipad as it stays connected to my other bluetooth (sony bm10) audio receiver for days on end. The power saving feature is annoying as short notification sounds such as email notifications are over before the speakers wake up again. This cannot be disabled as far as i can see but is also true for every other set of speakers with power saving that i’ve tried.

Good sound and easy to set up. Get very loud but don’t distort too much. Very good value over a soundbar and the cables are long enough to put them round the tv and the sub on the floor. Only annoying thing is the wired volume control – you can’t use your connected device (eg tv) to control the volume. I knew it had wired controls before i bought it but didn’t quite get this (my fault, i know) – a minor annoyance but enough to remove a star.

I got this as a christmas present for now i call a ex, she loves them and pretty sure she is still using them.

. This is the best speaker in this price range you can buy. 🙂 it’s sound is really powerful and clear, in a small bedroom, but if you wanna put this in a big living room, its not for you.

With 50% off, was a good purchase for the price – it does the job. Wish it had a subwoofer control.

Custom tuned down firing ported subwoofer for that oomph in your music

Easy to use and connect up not a bad sound.

Very easy to set up and use. Better sound quality than i anticipated given the speaker size and price.

Very easy to setup and i’m happy with the volume and sound (although i’m certainly no expert). As others have pointed out, the speakers are connected both together and to the volume control with wires – the wireless functionality is one which lets you connect devices by bluetooth. I’ve since bough another couple of sets for the kitchen and bedroom.

Item came just as described. Will buy again in the future.

Nice bluetooth function but forget it doesn’t produce that loud, however it’s better than what came with my laptop.

Using it for my creative srufio , connects straight to my phone to use the soundcloud app, sound and bass is good for its purpose. Really happy with it and good value for money.

Wired remote control with Power ON/OFF and volume control for convenience

Great speaker set for bedroom .

Best speakers i have ever bought, i’m in my second year of university and my course is very editing orientated and my previous speakers were very horrible to edit with as it gave me incorrect frequencies which resulted in poor audio these speakers came before the day my deadline, and i must say these speakers have so much depth its unbelievable especially for the price. If you need rich and good sounding audio then this is defiantly for you. The bass is very very powerful and even on its lowest setting manages to vibrate everything in my room.

Good clear sound, easy to set up, bluetooth link button on back panel, do not forget to balance your sound from your tablet – phone etc to gain nice balance. Has also a cable that fits headphones outlet on devices, just in case net goes down , but you better wait for amazon to put this on offer again , i got this for £35.

Always been a fan of creative’s speakers and these absolutely lived up to their expectation. I don’t know why people bother considering other brands when creative deliver time after time after time.

Excellent quality speaker, clear high pitches and does well enough at low bass levels too, easy to use, great battery – good contender to other bigger manufacturers at faction of the price. After having brought this, it lead me to buy creatives bluetooth in ear headphones which are fairly good too.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Creative MUVO Mini Pocket-Sized Weather bluetooth speaker
  • Great value, great sound, great battery!
  • Quality audio from a compact unit.

Battery when not being used is suprisingly good; i came back from holiday abroad with it at 75% in may and it’s the same 5 months later. Great little speaker for using by the pool and during the frequent power cuts, everyone loved it. Sound is excellent for the size, and it’s smart looking as well.

Charge it and keep on top of it and its all gpod.

Better than my bose sound system and that cost £170.

The sound quality is great, it charges quite quickly, and lasts for hours. If you’re after an affordable speaker don’t look elsewhere, unless you have the spondoolies for the bose of course ;).

Excellent sound, not too basey. I’ve had the speaker about a month now and mainly listen to classical, which is much clearer sounding than my galaxy e tab speaker. Not sure it is necessary to have a ‘speaker on’ announcement every time i switch it on, which annoys me.

A great portable speaker which produces very good sound for its size. I have also found the battery life and range of the unit very impressive. I would definitely recommend this speaker to others.

Less than 24 hours after ordering the creative muvo mini has arrived on my door step. Its a small portable, waterproof bluetooth speaker. Packaging is nice and it sounds great too and claims to have 10 hours of battery life. Its super simple to connect and its really well made. Its £49 for the red one but the grey is on sale for only £39.

The volume for the size is amazing. Great build quality and sound quality is as good as you could get for a device this size, very well balanced and great bass tones for the size. Great to have a device like this that’s so conveniently sized and packs a real punch.

Incredible sound for such a small device the quality of both the device and the sound is impeccable, i opened it 5 minutes ago and am now listening to music and i’m so in love.

Suprisingly loud and filling speaker for the size and price. Sound quality is excelent and on par with far more expensive options such as the beats pill. The speaker is light and the waterproofing is an added bonus for outdoors or parties where drinks can be spilt. Bass is also pretty good and even better once tweaked on your device. Overall, its worth spending the extra money to get this fantastic speaker rather than cheaping out completely on a £20 speaker.

Got this for my daughter and she loves it. She has a bath and sticks a playlist on her phone to play via the speaker – well away from the water. We also use it up the garden when relaxing. Good deep base sound and easy to use.

Simple to use and produces a fairly good sound. It could be louder at times but you’d probably need to pay more for a better speaker if you want that. I’ve not tested the weather proof aspect of it yet though.

The best thing i have ever bought. Maybe a slight exaggeration but it is definitely up there with the best, i love it. Stylish, looks good, decent sound quality. Well worth the money and i would highly recommend.

It’s a great speaker compared with my phone but i find it lacks with volume.

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.
