Review Creative Sound Blaster Roar Portable Speaker – I have a range of music devices and speakers which I use as per the mood, and I think it is common for most Audiophiles.
If it is morning music and ghazals or playing songs when friends have to get together, and you want to listen to soft rock or just recent numbers creative roar is my favorite speaker system.
They are quite portable and easy to carry, so you can take them outdoors, to a friends place or if you are going to an outbound location and need to enjoy beer and music in a relaxing chair sitting by the beach. I did this some days back.
Music quality is great if you use a micro SD card you will get to hear every beat in the tracks with utmost clarity.
The mids and highs are clear, and so are low beats, the frequency response is good for the speakers.
The voice clarity and treble is evident for the Creative Roar speakers. However, if you are a pure bass lover, you may like a bigger speaker system for a 5.1 surround sound. But they have good sound and bass for the small form factor they have.
