Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 review: Big audio, basic design

 

When the original Creative Sound Blaster Roar landed on our desk last year we were impressed by the big sound from its small scale. Now it's the turn of the more compact, more powerful, yet more expensive sequel: the Roar 2. Although to Creative Sound...

Decent sound from a small package, solid build

Exposed ports not the prettiest, more expensive than original

Although to Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 couldn't be called a reference speaker, for its small size it really kicks out quality audio. There's plenty of bass considering the size, which otherwise typically lacks from such portable Bluetooth speakers.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 review

 

Size isn't everything

Smaller footprint ; Good value ; Balanced sound ; Doubles as voice recorder

Short-ish battery life ; Could be louder

Smaller, but just as powerful as its progenitor, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is a multifunctional speaker that knows how to drop the bass and fill the room with sound. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 is a marked improvement on its predecessor. It's lighter and...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 review

 

The Roar 2 packs the same growl as the original, but looks better after dieting for a few months.

The best way to look at the Roar 2 is to simply consider it the same as the original Roar, albeit looking better after dieting for a few months. (Maybe it should have been called Roar 1.5?) Some cosmetic changes give it a slight makeover, but it’s...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2

 

The Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 has plenty of unique features you don't typically see on Bluetooth speakers, but there are slightly better-sounding models for the price.

Built-in MP3 player. Voice recorder. USB DAC. Solid sound quality.

Not as crisp or as powerful as other speakers in this price range.

Like the original, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is an intriguing multi-tool of a portable speaker. It can do a lot of different things and its performance is satisfying, especially for a price tag closer to $150 than $200. If you want the best sound...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2: Feature rich player that packs a punch, but with weight issues - Tech2

 

Popular audio company, Creative, has released yet another Bluetooth player but this time in the premium category with a lot of bells and whistles, but can it still pull its weight? Let's find out.

Where the player lacks, is actually design aesthetics and that ironically it throws in so much but doesn’t try to stay lean on a diet. Who really needs a voice recorder and USB host audio? Most people going for a premium player would want good sound no...

Creative SoundBlaster Roar 2 Review – heavy still but roars better

 

Though it's limited in terms of use laid back trips and sudden parties creative Soundblaster Roar 2 has a brighter sound signature, bunch of connectivity options and decent battery life

• Better sound over BT ; • Solid control buttons ; • Standing posture directs sound effectively

• Bulky ; • Not waterproof/ shockproof

Soundblaster Roar 2 has a very different usage; it compensates its bulk and non-rugged nature with bigger drivers with a heavier sound. The reshuffled arrangement of drivers has made it smaller and more useful at what it does. With a brighter sound...

Bluetooth speakers are no longer just about a convenient music listening experience.

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Roar 2 Speaker Review

 

It might not be rugged or waterproof, and not very “portable” but it’s certainly one of the best Bluetooth speakers I’ve used to date. One I can recommend without hesitation. This is a perfect gift for the holiday season. Creative also sells a carry...

Review: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Roar 2 speaker

 

Creative Labs likes to do things big by packing its speakers with power and features. The original Roar, which we reviewed last year, delivered impressive sound and functionality. As an encore to the original, the Roar 2 is designed to be 20 percent...
