SINGAPORE - 10 July 2014 - Creative Technology Ltd today announced the Creative MUVO™ mini - the latest addition to the popular Creative MUVO family of near-field communications (NFC) Bluetooth portable wireless speakers.

Sporting a contemporary geometric compact encasement with four colour options of red, blue, white and black, the Creative MUVO mini is designed to deliver amazingly loud sound and powerful bass for its small size.

Creative MUVO mini
“In designing the Creative MUVO mini, we want our users to be able to enjoy an optimal audio experience in the most compact-sized speaker that they can put into their pockets or purses, and bring it along wherever they go. To ensure that this tiny speaker delivers astoundingly loud and clear stereo sound, two highly-tuned and lightweight full-range drivers were selected for use. Furthermore, a specially-designed oversized front-facing passive radiator further extends and enhances the compact speaker's bass performance and delivers ‘Big Speaker Bass'.” said Niu Chew Eng, Senior Manager for Advanced Multimedia Products at Creative Technology.

“We even went the extra mile to have the MUVO mini certified with an IP66 Ingress Protection rating that tests it against the harshness of outdoor all-weather usage, such as water and dust, so that you can enjoy great audio anytime, anywhere and in any weather. Whether at a picnic by the beach, a night out at a hip-hop party, at summer camp in the national park, or calling your family from a road trip, the MUVO mini is a perfect weatherproof companion wherever you go.” added Niu.
