Traditionally, small speakers aren't able to deliver powerful audio. But we believe that the size of a product shouldn't define its potential. With that in mind, we paid special attention to how we built the Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200. We incorporated special circuitry which is designed to really pump up the volume, allowing it to deliver impressively loud audio despite its small, portable size.
From enhancing clarity to automatically regulating the loudness of audio playback, the SBX Pro Studio suite of technologies intelligently improves the quality of your audio. This means you get an unmatched audio playback experience for your music, movies, and games.
We paid special attention to how we designed the Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200. The patent-pending stacked stereo design houses two speaker drivers vertically, in one chassis. This saves space on your desktop, while delivering a great stereo experience. Its small size means it fits right into your hand, a design consideration that we knew was important for those constantly on the move.
Easily access the main functions using the intuitive, touch-sensitive control panel, conveniently located at the top of the device.
The Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 features a quad microphone array - that's FOUR microphones - that allows for clear 360° voice recording and pickup, ideal for calls. This makes it the perfect personal wireless mobile teleconferencing system.
The SB-Axx1 processor powers a whole suite of voice enhancement technologies not even found in high-end teleconferencing systems. From reducing unwanted background noise to optimizing your voice even as you move around the room, CrystalVoice Technology ensures you get the best voice communications experience.
With CrystalVoice Focus™ technology, the Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 shoots an acoustic beam* around you and suppresses all noise from outside it. This makes it great for calls even in noisy environments. You can define just how wide the acoustic zone is, meaning you're in full control of what's heard and what isn't.

Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200
Without a doubt, the AXX 200 Speaker System is one of the most unique, fully featured audio devices that I have ever used. The fact that it was portable was a huge plus, especially for laptop enthusiasts looking for better sound quality and gaming effects. There are plenty of other Bluetooth-compatible speakers on the market that have better bass response and impact and some also rival the AXX 200's hardware feature set, but I have not found any that have the user-friendly, cross platform software found with the AXX 200.

What I get instead, is the best portable speaker I’ve ever reviewed in terms of sound quality & clarity so far, flexibility in connectivity, and everything else you want from a portable gadget...
