For Wireless Entertainment Enjoyment

Creative Sound Blaster Roar Portable Wireless Speaker
Sound Blaster Roar Designed to rival existing home stereo systems, the Sound Blaster Roar, a new concept booklet-size, portable 5-driver wireless speaker is a heavyweight contender in the wireless speaker market that delivers amazingly powerful, precision-tuned, high fidelity sound from a compact and portable booklet size.

Dubbed the ‘Audiophile Sound Booklet' by audio aficionados, the sleek, metallic Sound Blaster Roar measures only 57 x 202 x 115 mm and weighs 1.1 kg, but still packs a punch in audio performance. A product of years of research in speaker design and technology, it represents the pinnacle of portable wireless audio, and marks the redefinition of the home stereo and wireless speaker market - by combining wireless connectivity, portability, high fidelity and audio power all into one compact unit that can rest on the palm.

Beyond its astounding audio performance, the Sound Blaster Roar also comes with many useful features, such as speakerphone teleconferencing, a MicroSD slot for MP3/WMA/WAV playback and audio recording, a siren, Bedtime Mode and Life Saver Mode.

  • Bi-amplified design sets it apart from most other speakers that feature only one amplifier, allowing it to produce amazingly powerful and balanced low, mid and high-range sound
  • Designed with 5 drivers: Far-field high frequency front-firing drivers project audio further than other portable speakers. Audio spaciousness is further enhanced through the top-firing bass and mid-range driver and side-firing passive radiators, resulting in room-filling audio that is not audio sweet-spot dependant
  • Boxer-bass-module design allows a low centre of gravity that increases speaker stability
  • ROAR button: in scenarios such as parties and gatherings where a wider audience needs to be addressed, pressing the ROAR button instantly and significantly boost the speaker's loudness, depth and audio spaciousness
