The ROAR is an excellent choice if you value insane functionality and flexibility, yet superb sound quality.

Western Morning News (Web)

It is perfect timing for the arrival of this latest piece of portable Bluetooth kit, an award-winning portable speaker able to live up to its hype and make the right noises in this overcrowded category.

Sound quality is also excellent, with two front-facing drivers and large subwoofer on top, paired to a passive bass outlet on each side all working together to create a rich sound with a nice level of detail. Maximum volume is also impressive, with zero distortion and the aforementioned ROAR feature is on hand for particularly loud environments. aptX support is a welcome inclusion for superior streaming quality and battery life is around eight hours.

 

The Gadget Show Online

The Creative Sound Blaster ROAR SR20 gives you plenty of bang for your buck - even if you don't want any of the extra features. For £169.99, you get even more functions crammed into its small chassis than the comparatively barebones, and similarly priced.

What's important is the grand, powerful sound that the speaker produces. Considering the $150 price tag, consumers are getting a bargain for the spectacular sound and features that come along with it. 

 

Android Police

The ROAR sounds killer, and it's definitely very balanced: lows are deep and rich, mids are very pronounced, and highs are a well-blended part of the mix. The combination of the three make it sound like a much larger speaker than it actually is. And when you crank the volume, it can handle it – there's no distortion even at max volume.

 

Tom's Guide

Dollar for dollar, the Sound Blaster ROAR produces the best sound of any portable Bluetooth speaker I've heard.

 

Sound Guys

Considering everything else it does, this is not only a great value, but one of the flat out coolest speakers we’ve seen in some time. It’s not the smallest or most portable speaker we’ve seen for sure, but if you’re looking for the audio equivalent of a Swiss Army knife, this is the speaker for you.

Gear Patrol

You’ll buy it because it produces high-quality audio, has hassle-free Bluetooth pairing and is more affordable than its competitors. Those — used to deliver a healthy dose of David Lee Roth — are reason enough.

 

Best Stuff

All in all, the ROAR is one of the most impressive bluetooth speakers currently on the market. Small details such as allowing users to choose whether they want more bass in their mix are what consumers want. I’m absolutely impressed by the unique combination of volume, audio quality, and customization Creative packed into this speaker.

 

Android Headlines

The Creative Sound Blaster ROAR is one of the best wireless, portable speakers I’ve ever heard. The battery life is good, the sound is fantastic, and the additional features make it a decent conference call and recording device. You should definitely pick one of these up.

 

Pocket-lint

Decent battery life, sturdy design and, most importantly for any audio device, sound quality that will outsmart plenty of its rivals are obvious high points. There's a lot of bass that warmly sweeps into the mix - far more than you'd anticipate for a device of this scale.

Chip Chick

ROAR can effortlessly fill a large room with audio. It creates a very large soundstage and it definitely sounds like music is coming from a bigger source. The music is crisp and very well balanced. There’s fantastic bass for such a small device. Even at its loudest volumes it’s very clear. It will get loud enough to power a small party.

 

GIZMAG

Creative has used all of its years of audio experience to create a piece of hardware capable of producing a remarkable, room-filling sound and then delicately programmed it to take advantage of the hardware. The vaunted "ROAR" function makes a noticeable difference when used, increasing the volume and the expansiveness of the sound.

 

MyMac

How loud is this ROAR speaker? Loud enough to invoke a “Turn that #$%& thing down, John” shout from Mrs. Nemo, indoors or outside, whenever I nudge the volume control on my iPhone upward. Even better, there is no distortion when SR20 is playing at full capacity. It will fill an apartment or small house with sound just as it fills my patio in every direction.

Entertainment Buddha

Creative Labs’ Sound Blaster ROAR is an amazing portable wireless speaker system that can definitely bolster your mobile audio needs while on the go. Its five driver system powered by two independent amps produces amazingly clear and powerful tones that can turn any Bluetooth audio device into an impressive sound system. Connecting to the ROAR is a breeze thanks to its easy-to-use NFC and Bluetooth pairing modes, so listening to music on it doesn’t require a technical degree. The extra functions only add more value to this already impressive device...

Oluv's Gadgets

The ROAR is a very interesting and nice sounding portable speaker. Featurewise it beats most of the competition with built-in handsfree, NFC, Apt-X and such unique features like micro SD-card playback and even audio recording.

 

Gizmodo Australia

The Sound Blaster ROAR is solidly built, is chock-full of fancy features, and sounds pretty impressive — and it costs a lot less than I thought it would.

 

Mr. Gadget

The best bluetooth speakers in terms of sound and features is hands down the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR S20. Well done to Creative Labs who have been diligently working on producing the best sound from their devices for years and have such a great reputation for it. If you’re looking for a high performance portable wireless speaker, the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR S20 is it. Absolutely highly recommended.

smashpop.net

I personally like to use it in my room as the ROAR is able to fill up the whole room with my music as if the speaker is built into the walls. Creative calls this “Space-Filling Dispersion”. It’s really an amazing experience that you can only feel if you have it in your room.

 

Music | Photo | Life

The SR20 is a stunning product with the amazing price and the Swiss-army knife-like list of features, and I have no qualms to proclaim that the "Audiophile Sound Booklet" SR20 is the best wireless portable speakers I have reviewed in terms of overall value and audio capabilities.

 

Craving Tech

ROAR, is loud and sounds good. Real good. That awesome sound quality, thankfully, can be enjoyed with pretty much any device you can throw at it. It supports pretty much all connections that you can think of: Bluetooth, 3.5mm jack, NFC, USB, and even a microSD card.

Custom PC Review

Overall, the Sound Blaster ROAR SR20 is definitely the most impressive Bluetooth speaker we’ve reviewed for quite a while – it not only sounds good, but it’s also extremely versatile, which is all you could really ask for with a Bluetooth speaker.

CPC Certified AWESOME Award - Gold

HWZBB

We blasted a couple of tracks at it, from The Eagles' Hotel California to Celine Dion’s Incredible and Katy Perry’s ROAR, the speakers volume was amazing, for its size. Even with the ROAR function enabled, at the loudest volume, the speakers managed to continue to churn out its music, without any distortion. Bass performance, for these portable speakers however, is incredible. Extremely punchy and deep, its performance in this segment has probably set the bar up another notch. High’s were fine and fortunately, not too sharp till it irritates one.

 

iPhoneLIFE Magazine

With the number of wireless speaker choices on the market, manufacturers like Creative need to differentiate themselves with the features contained in their products. Creative has certainly accomplished this objective with the ROAR SR20. It is packed with dozens of features, many of which are unique to the Sound Blaster wireless speaker line.

 

GamingShogun

The sheer amount of sound coming from the ROAR filled the room and no one in our audience missed any of the action. We have tried several other Bluetooth speakers for this role, but most fall short of putting out enough sound for everyone to hear clearly. The ROAR is now my speaker of choice for room-filling sound.

5 out of 5

My Tech Methods

This speaker also has 5 drivers: 2 passive drivers on the side that produce the bass, 2 in the front that produce the highs, and 1 on top that produces the mids and bass. This allows it to give a very powerful well-balanced audio playback that will fill up an entire room. That is probably the best feature about this speaker. It can fill up a whole room very easily and when it’s playing in a room you can’t really tell where the speaker’s located. You can’t really tell where the sound is coming from. That’s how good of a job that this speaker does at filling up a whole room with high quality audio. 

 

Inner Fidelity

I really like the ROAR SR20... Adding in significant sonic control with the SB Control panel software; the ability to record voice and phone calls; the ability to play computer audio over USB; and the ability to act as a stand-alone player with music on the Micro-SD card makes it a product that delivers terrific value for money. This is a great little unit for the business traveler as it's small enough to fit in a brief case if needed, and will help you set-up a dandy little office in your hotel room. Totally dig it, happy to recommend this very cool audio tool!

Stuff we like!

Tech Attack

...wherever you place the ROAR, you get a great sense that its sound reaches outwards to fill the space, which I think is well beyond the expectations of many smaller sounds systems, to say nothing of portable wireless speakers.

 

Hardwarezone

Regardless of your budget, if you are in the market for a compact wireless Bluetooth speaker, you would be foolish not to at least consider the Sound Blaster ROAR.

9 out of 10

The Gadgeteer

The ROAR is hands-down, the best sounding speaker I have heard in this size range. Its combination of clarity coupled with decent, but not overpowering bass, makes the speaker’s sound approach audiophile quality. I could listen to the ROAR all day and not wish I was listening to a different portable speaker. Whether I was listening to a Pulp song with their heavy reliance on vocals and bass, a light classical Debussy waltz or even Malcolm McLaren rapping about Buffalo Gals in an early hip-hop song, it didn’t matter. Everything sounded great. There are few speakers that can handle every style of music effortlessly.

 

Dysorder

The ROAR easily got to a respectable volume with room to go even louder if it was needed, and the sound quality was great, considering its size.

 

Amazon Customer Reviews


ROAR manages to create a large presence with balanced sound that filled the entire house. The sound was very pleasing and melodious. The 'ROAR' feature makes the sound come alive. The kick drums really kicks ass. I can't believe this is possible from such a small speaker. Creative has really created something amazing. It looks beautiful and is very portable. And for $150, this is a real steal.

Crooked Tree

The bi-amp design results in a cleaner overall sound with less distortion since the bass speaker and the front-facing drivers are powered separately. This is essentially unheard of in any other bluetooth speaker that I'm aware of. This is the sort of amplification scheme that high-end audio has been using for years and now it's in this very reasonably priced bluetooth speaker. So how does it sound? Fantastic.

M. Erb

What really counts in an external speaker is sound quality, portability, ease of operation and price and on all of the above, Sound Blaster's ROAR is outstanding. Oh, of course, I forgot to mention the ROAR button. It's what you use if you want to expand the sound to 'fill the room'. It works and it does seem to spread the sound around.

A. Dent "Aragorn"

I have reviewed a large number of speaker of this size over the last year, and I can candidly say that it has the best sound of any portable speaker I have tried. It also has a lot of features besides being a bluetooth speaker. I am writing this review after a couple of weeks of daily use based on how I adapted the features to my daily life.

Ali Julia

Believe me when I say this (and I am very selective about quality) there is not a portable speaker on the market today that offers these same features for the price. However, the overwhelming deciding factor for ownership should be sound quality and fidelity, which this speaker delivers! If you can put your hands on one and hear it, you'll see that this sounds better than other "premium" portable speakers out there for 3x the cost.

Will_R

If you have the money to spend on this speaker, don't walk, RUN to the order button and just buy it. This is easily the best sounding portable speaker I have ever heard, and if you pair them it is likely the sound from these two devices will trounce what most normal people usually listen to music on at home.

Stephen M. Lerch

The Sound Blaster ROAR not only causes you to drop your jaw in disbelief, it is also very listenable over the long term with practically any music genre. In fact I like it better than any of the other palm-size speakers I have tried, and yes that does include Bose. So much so that as of now this is the one that will travel with me to make boring hotel rooms come alive with music or videos played on my iPad sound more like my home surround system.

PhotoGraphics

I've always wanted that high end sound but could never afford the kind of speaker that produced it… Until now. Sound Blaster has thought about just about everything that makes the listening experience amazing and easy. Lots of features, amazing sound, compact size. And it comes with a carry case as well! This is well worth the investment.

K. Groh

One thing that separates this unit from most of the units in the marketplace today is that it shies away from the ubiquitous "boom tizz" (too much bass with an overly bright high frequency response) type of sonic voicing… Overall, I can (and do) recommend this unit without hesitation. At it's retail cost of $149.99 It simply crushes its immediate competition (and some competitors at double or triple the price). Buy one!

24 Track

I wanted hear what movies sound like with the ROAR. So I went ahead and plugged it in. I found out my tv is able to turn the ROAR up about 3x the volume that my phone can. No, I didn't try maxing it out..sorry, but I got it loud enough that I thought my neighbors would complain for sure. Let me also state I live in a good sized 1 bedroom apt with brick on the outside. Anyways, movies sound phenomenal, the ROAR plays every sound, makes each one distinguishable, and sound great.

Blockay

This speaker has excellent sound, great bass and crystal clear treble. It has good stability at high volumes with no noise or rattling. The wireless music sounds as good as the wired connections using state of the art data transmission technology. This speaker was built to party! This speaker is a 5 star and it deserves even a higher rating.

jjceo

I am very pleasantly surprised by the volume, but more importantly, the quality of the sound. I research endlessly and tirelessly when making audio purchases. Please trust, I did the same thing here, despite the reviews, because hearing is believing. This is one of the best purchases that I have ever made from a tech standpoint and will encourage friends and family to buy it also. Trust the time that I put into it as well as the other reviewers and just buy it.

Dave Torbet

When you first take it out of the box you really feel solid built quality, great design and pleasant weight which means there are serious guts inside. Sound : Mmmmm first start with bass - pretty well for its compactness and here you feel that this bass is really enough for a human ear , mids - also great as well as highs . With one word sound is much much “pricey than the price”. Guys this thing is priceless !!! Grab it !!!

Ramin Ibragimov

I could go on and on about how much I love the ROAR, how much other around me love it, but I'll put a lid on it and let the specs speak for themselves. Across the board, from Generation X to Generation Y, the verdict is, is that the Creative Sound Blaster ROAR is now the best speaker on the market.

D. Fowler

This thing gets loud and the base is perfect. The sound is crisp and remained clear from the low levels all the way to the maximum volume. This is a product that puts the comsumer first, as it offers an abundance of features and delivers as it promises. I don't feel like I was paying extra for a name or that this product lacked anything that I wanted. Surprisingly, it has features that I didn't even consider until I found this, such as the Link 2 bluetooth mode which allows 2 devices to be linked simultaneously for a jukebox-type experience.

FLgator93

Overall, I am very satisfied with the sound quality, and using it to watch a movie with no complaint (without even using the sound card feature!) was pretty cool. In summary, I would highly recommend this device to anyone looking for a good value on a bluetooth speaker providing excellent sound quality.

Grant Twiss

The Creative SoundBlaster ROAR is a fully featured and powerful portable bluetooth speaker. Out of all the Bluetooth speakers I’ve ever used, this is definitely one of the best… This speaker gives very well balanced and very high quality sound. Mids and Highs are excellent and clear, even at the higher volume levels.

SpinDoctor Reviews

Sound wise was good; bass was tight & highs were crisp. The ROAR shines at normal to high volume (not max volume) and sounds better when it is further from me (say 1 m). I use it primary for movie and gaming and it serves me well for that purpose.

MCCT

This speaker has some of the best dynamics I've heard from almost ANY speaker, with the only thing in question being its volume. Yes, it can still get hugely loud, but don't expect to have dance hall booming bass, especially in large rooms. That's not a drawback, in my book, rather it's a description of most portable speakers' capabilities.

Seien es die diversen Abspielmöglichkeiten oder auch die Möglichkeit, ein externes Mikrofon anzuschließen. Sogar eine Handy-Ladefunktion, welche die inzwischen allseits bekannten Power-Banks umsetzen, wurde mit integriert.

Geometria

Если подытожить, то — отличное устройство как для поездок (на пикник, например), так и для использования дома. Особенно хорош динамик своей компактностью. Поначалу цена мне показалась немного завышенной, но по факту — все в пределах разумного, и Sound Blaster ROAR можно и стоит приобретать как себе, так и кому угодно в подарок.

 

Itn daily

Если вы размышляете о качественном, полезном и действительно нужном подарке современному человеку, любящему качественный звук и высокие технологии, обозреваемый аппарат может оказаться превосходной идеей.

В общем, эта малышка звучит громко и качественно, есть множество функций. Это хорошая беспроводная портативная акустика за хорошую цену. За такую цену сложно найти конкурента с таким набором функций и звучанием.

Сколько я не пытался найти минусы у Creative Sound Blaster ROAR, у меня так и не получилось это сделать. Единственное, что случилось за все время использования – он какое-то время отказывался выключаться. Ну а его достоинства искать не приходится – потрясающее звучание, аккумулятор, который держит заряд 8 часов, легкое управление, интересный дизайн. Но главное, конечно, цена – 9 тысяч рублей и у вас есть свой личный мини-бумбокс.

 

IT-World.ru

ачество и громкость звука меня впечатлили: поначалу даже не поверилось, что на такое способна небольшая коробочка. Создалось впечатление, что играет мощная настольная система. Эффект усиливается при нажатии кнопки ROAR – звук становится громче, насыщеннее и субъективно объемнее.

 

AV-Tribune

Поэтому можно со всей уверенностью сказать, что Creative Sound Blaster ROAR SR20 выдает лучший в своем классе звук. На наш взгляд эту колонку можно однозначно отнести к разряду Must Have. Creative Sound Blaster ROAR SR20 заслуженно получает нашу награду «Выбор Главного редактора».

Выбор Главного редактора

habrahabr.ru

Однозначный победитель по качеству, количеству и продолжительности положительных эмоций среди мобильных колонок. Годится и для дома, и для офиса, и для пикника, и в машину, и вообще. Отлично собрана, отлично работает, отличный набор приятных мелочей в очень компактном корпусе и со вполне разумным ценником. Колоночка, кстати, завоевала Ret Dot Award 2014.

 

kp.ru

Но главное в любой колонке, конечно, звук. И здесь он на довольно высоком уровне. Благодаря басовому динамику и излучателям самой сильной стороной колонки оказалось проигрывание басов. Они звучат сочно, объемно, что нетипично для портативной техники.

 

Ferra

В итоге мы ставим Creative Sound Blaster ROAR не просто «отлично», а «отлично/отлично». Первая оценка идет за классическое содержание портативной колонки. Модель обеспечивает впечатляющее качество звука и высокую громкость, сопрягается с несколькими устройствами одновременно, имеет NFC, может подключаться к любым плеерам через линейный вход или к компьютеру. При всем этом огромным довеском идет набор дополнительных функций, которого обычно вообще нет. Sound Blaster ROAR может выступать в роли диктофона или спикерфона, работать в режиме сирены, читать сказки на ночь, быть дополнительным внешним зарядным устройством. Возможно, это не надо дома, но для загородного отдыха такие особенности окажутся нелишними.

 

iPhones.ru

В начале 2014 года среди портативных колонок компании появился новый флагман – Creative Sound Blaster ROAR. Это необычная акустика, не одноразовый вариант «в поход да на пенёк».

Концентрация функций, возможностей и технологий на квадратный сантиметр поражает настолько, что представителям компании приходится присылать журналистам толстые пакеты со специальным буклетом, отражающим каждую особенность устройства – чтобы не забыли ни о чём.

Мне понравились металл и внешний вид, дополнительные функции, легкость подключения к ноутбуку, звук – звук впечатляет... Хочется похвалить создателей, устройство удалось на славу. На мой взгляд, в 2014 году среди портативных колонок это один из лучших гаджетов. Смело могу рекомендовать для покупки.

 

Zoom CNews

Акустика Creative Sound Blaster ROAR представляет собой тот редкий, почти исключительный случай, когда устройство действительно превосходит ожидания. И дело даже не в том что мы привыкли к «урезанным» функциям большинства моделей, а в том, что самый полный набор актуальных возможностей разработчики смогли объединить еще и с превосходным, действительно мощным звуком. По совокупности достоинств устройства, а также при отсутствии явных недостатков награждаем Creative Sound Blaster ROAR нашей рекомендацией.

声音方面,这款ROAR音箱给人的感觉还是不错的,虽然声场方面还是像常规的小音箱一样没有彻底打开,也没有非常精准的定位,但是层次感明晰,已经是同样体积内的音箱当中非常难得表现了。

到手第一天,我就蛋疼的在公司试听,然后音量85%。然后你懂得,公司大家惊艳到,然后过来摸摸,然后装逼成功。目前1K出头的价位,这个做工跟音频表现,而且还是国行.确实。。。soundlink mini不再是唯一选择了。

先测试了下“ROAR”功能,音场提升明显,声音很明亮,如果是在聚会时为了提升音量,是一个非常有用的功能。低频方面,冲击力和包围感表现不错,中频解析度很高,声音很通透,高频部分依旧清晰,解析度很理想。我们又测试了下重低音模式,低频确实有强化,人声比较清晰,原有的低频效果依旧保持。整个过程中,正是由于apt-x数字音频压缩算法,使蓝牙连接不会出现延迟现象,而且在没有阻隔的情况下,15米之内不会失去连接,表现相当不错。

简约富有设计感的出色外观,轻松连接的音乐播放模式,丰富而不显鸡肋的多种实用功能,同样这款声霸锣支持aptX和AAC的高清音频解码器,呈现高品质无线音响的听感,颠覆了我们之前很多的固有思维模式,外观、音质、功能兼得的蓝牙小音箱还是能够在这款声霸锣上得以体现,毫无疑问,这款声霸锣的无线蓝牙音箱已经占据了1000元级别的翘楚地位,突破自身体积的限制,实现蓝牙音箱新的超越,创新的声霸锣已经写下了浓重的一笔了。

初听ROAR,有种眼前一亮之感。强劲的有控制力的低音让人很难相信这是从这个小盒子里发出的,记得我当时是放在大理石吧台上,那种浑厚感所带来的惊喜至今仍记忆犹新。尝试按下了背面的TeraBass键,音乐声中断,系统提示TeraBass on,然后就是更加夸张的低频效果,甚至有些轰头,于是赶紧关掉。我觉得关掉TeraBass后的低频的质和量,在30平米的房子里听已经足够了。这个结论直到最近的几天我把ROAR放在沙发上听时才发现不完全对,当把ROAR放置在布艺沙发一类的软平面上时,低频力度明显小了一些,震撼感也不及放在大理石台面上。这时再打开TeraBass增强低音效果,感觉不轰头了,而且那种强劲的低频效果又回来了。此外我还发现,随着音量的增大,TeraBass对低音的补偿是逐渐降低的,这样带来的好处是,小音量低频强劲,大音量低频不会过。

创新声霸锣没有吹嘘,在一个小巧的箱体中融入所有这些卓越的功能,声响效果毫不放松,还呈现出震撼人心的低音效果和强劲音响。锣吼音效 (ROAR) 带来声霸无忌的音响,重低音模式 (TeraBass) 呈现精准浑厚的低音而设计,震霸立体声体验 (MegaStereo) 实现 1+1 的强劲效果(前提你是壕),结合起来,可提供一个提供一个浩大充实的空间感与均衡的音质,让蓝牙音箱不再软弱无力。作为2014红点设计大奖的作品,创新声霸锣同时拥有不俗的外观质感,加上它便携无线蓝牙音箱的定位,中看又中用就是最好的诠释。不过,华丽的代价当然是较高的报价了,最近官方直销报价1099元,相比其他国际大牌高端音箱,这个价格还算厚道了。新品即将发售,尽请期待。
