Sound Blaster Roar

Compact Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker with NFC

Never before has such powerful and well-balanced audio come from a small compact booklet-sized speaker. With the Sound Blaster Roar, we've achieved the impossible by taking an impressive bi-amplified 5-driver system (including a kickass subwoofer) and shrinking it into a size no larger than a dictionary. The result: a speaker that is smaller, lighter, more stable and more powerful than any other speaker of its class. You'll have to hear it to believe it.

With its unbeatable factory-direct price, the Sound Blaster Roar easily outperforms speakers twice its price and is selling like hotcakes, with more than one unit selling every 30 seconds.

FEATURES

Defying the laws of acoustic engineering...

A portable Bluetooth wireless speaker (no larger than a booklet) does not only look great, but also has powerful audio and kickass thumping bass. On top of that, it must have a big battery, great killer features and an unbeatable killer price.

How could all these be possible? It was like defying the law of gravity!

We razed through countless designs and built many different prototypes to stretch the limits of the possibilities. Numerous times we crossed into the terrains of the impossible...

Mind-Shattering Performance ● Precision-Tuned Fidelity ● ROAR Audio™ Power

Bi-Amplified Design: Two Amps, Not One

Most portable speakers utilize a single amplifier to reproduce the entire audio spectrum. With a single amplifier design, much demand goes into reproducing the lows and mids, which compromises the delivery of the highs. On the other hand, the Sound Blaster Roar utilizes two amplifiers – one dedicated to driving lows and mids, while and another which is solely dedicated to deliver the high frequencies. This allows the speaker to produce uncompromisingly clear, high definition, and well-balanced music. The top-firing bass and mid-level driver is also laid horizontally, reducing the speaker’s center of gravity, thus stabilizing it.

'

Space-Filling Dispersion

While many other portable speakers produce small, constrained sound, the Sound Blaster Roar is designed to deliver space-filling audio. That’s because we have incorporated far-field high frequency drivers in the Sound Blaster Roar, and these project audio further than other speakers of its class. This is complemented by the boxer-style layout, which also delivers a room-filling, non-sweet spot-specific audio experience.

ROAR: Instant No-Holds-Barred Audio Power

Most portable speakers either focus on audio power, thus compromising audio fidelity, or vice versa; removing the power of choice from end users. The Sound Blaster Roar is designed to be different. By default, it produces balanced, high-fidelity audio. And in scenarios where sheer audio power is needed – in large parties and social gatherings, for instance – users can press the ROAR button that instantly boosts the loudness, depth and spaciousness of the audio.

TeraBass: Optimal Bass, even at low volumes

The Sound Blaster Roar’s TeraBass is an intelligent feature that provides bass boost to compensate for the loss of perceived bass during low-level listening, such as at night or less-than-ideal acoustic environments. Tbe bass compensation level will be reduced as the playback volume increases till it reaches the maximum dynamic output, where no processing is applied. Also, TeraBass can be switched off if the bass compensation is not desired.

MegaStereo: Double the Roar, double the power!

The Sound Blaster Roar already delivers an amazing stereo audio performance on its own. Now, imagine the audio performance you will experience with two units of Sound Blaster Roar! Using the MegaStereo Cable, you can link up two units of Sound Blaster Roar to create a mega stereo experience of left+left and right+right channels to achieve a wider sound stage, giving you even more powerful, all-encompassing audio for your music, movies and games!1

ENSLAVE OTHER SPEAKERS

You can also have fun "enslaving" other speakers by connecting them to the Sound Blaster Roar with the MegaStereo Cable.

Advanced High definition Audio Codecs — aptX and AAC

The Sound Blaster Roar supports aptX and AAC, which are advanced HD codecs that deliver high quality audio for Bluetooth transmission. These codecs — supported by branded Android phones and the iPhone, are crucial for great wireless audio and they are not even found in many expensive wireless speakers.

What lies beneath

Minimizing energy wastage to deliver better audio quality

Delivering balanced highs and far-field high-frequency dispersion

Pumping out impressive bass and directed upwards to stabilize the speaker

Offering more bass enhancement and widening the soundstage

Clean, powerful bass

The active 2.5″ driver pumps out impressive bass. Directing the audio upwards also stabilizes the speaker and provides for a wider soundstage that does not require the listener to be situated in the audio sweet spot.

Even more bass enhancement

Not only that, it is further complemented and enhanced with dual opposing, side-firing passive radiators that widen the soundstage dramatically.

Acoustically optimized speaker design

The rigid monocoque endo-skeletal chassis has fewer internal components that vibrate individually. This translates to lesser energy wastage and better audio quality.

Compact, powerful, high frequency drivers

Durable and lightweight high-frequency drivers deliver balanced highs. These dual 1.5” premium drivers are also designed to provide far-field high-frequency dispersion.

1 Only audio playback from Bluetooth®, MicroSD card and USB audio via PC/Mac are supported when the MegaStereo Cable is in use. While using MegaStereo feature, the audio may sound unbalanced when the Sound Blaster Roar is running on battery mode after an extended period of time. This is due to the difference in individual speaker battery levels. For optimum performance, it is recommended to connect both speakers to their power adapters.
2 Actual battery life will vary with use, settings and environmental conditions.

    It’s got a bunch of other features: built-in MP3 player from a MicroSD card, NFC connectivity lets you connect without opening up your Bluetooth panel, sleep mode that fades out before shutting off, and even a sound recorder. You can connect multiple devices to it via Bluetooth so that you and a friend can play DJ together. But the best part, really, is simply the sound quality you get out of a box this size.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    With the number of wireless speaker choices on the market, manufacturers like Creative need to differentiate themselves with the features contained in their products.

    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.

  • 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.

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!

    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.

  • C. Tree

    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.

  • M. Erb

    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.

  • A. D. "Aragorn"

    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. Julia

    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.

  • Will_R

    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.

  • S. M. Lerch

    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.

  • PhotoGraphics

    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.

  • K. Groh

    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.

  • 2. Track

    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!

  • Blockay

    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.

  • jjceo

    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.

  • D. Torbet

    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.

  • R. Ibragimov

    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 !!!

  • D. Fowler

    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.

  • FLgator93

    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.

  • G. Twiss

    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.

  • S. Reviews

    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.

    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.

  • K. Gagarin

    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.
