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.

CES 2015

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.

Watch Video

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.

3 Supports microSD or microSDHC cards up to 32GB formatted in FAT/FAT32. Supported audio formats: MP3, WMA and WAV (16 bit 48kHz PCM). Supports MP3 and WMA up to 320kbps. Does not support WMA Pro/Lossless.

TAKING THE MARKET BY STORM

Right from the get-go, the Sound Blaster Roar began attracting fans with its amazing audio prowess. Within days of its launch in the U.S., the Sound Blaster Roar has secured the “Best Seller” status in various categories across Amazon. The recognition has now gained momentum and it's very well received around the world, from Europe to the Far East, and many more regions.

Tech reviewers and proud owners of the Sound Blaster Roar alike have been leaving us independent 5-star reviews and have unabashedly shared the joy that the speaker has given them. Many have described the Sound Blaster Roar as one of the best speakers they've listened to. Not surprisingly, many owners took a notch further, and have gone to get their second unit, along with the MegaStereo Cable for an even wider sound stage, twice the punch.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • I. D. Zosa

    For more than four months I was checking out and reading reviews of the different brands of Bluetooth speakers, which included models from Bose, Cambridge Audio, Braven, and others. I was on the fence and couldn't really decide which to buy as they were quite expensive. Last December I received a promotional email from Creative about the Sounblaster Roar. I went online to check the reviews and I was blown away by the amount of super positive reviews and the price. I did not delay in purchasing the Roar and when it arrived, I charged it fully first and set it inside my room and started to play my music from my smartphone to the Roar. I then went outside of my room but kept the door open and started to prepare to cook dinner. When I heard one of my favorite songs being played (very beautifully) I rushed back into my room and was awed by the sound of the Roar. I do not know how to describe it but I was just blown away by the sound of it. I did not even notice that I was just sitting in front of it for about four songs in a row. I was really excited that I had to call my brother and tell him about it. Now my brother has asked me to purchase it on his behalf as it is still not available in the Philippines at this time of writing.

    Speaker is fantastic, the design is sleek, modern and the voice clarity is something I have been looking out. I love to carry this around as a portable speaker and have shown it to my friends, everyone says it is good buy.

  • T. Bateman

    Works as created! Neat solution to better sound in the outback; have yet to see how it handles dust and dirt but so far so good!

  • J. Brown

    This mini marvel sounds a lot better than the its competitor from sonos and considering the price as good as the bose I intend to buy another to increase the soundstage but in a small to mid size room one is more than enough it can handle classical through to jazz rock and blues and even bel canto opera. Plus it is easy to operate and install. NO WIRES YAH!!

  • T. Spinks

    great sound, looks good, easy to use and competitively priced

  • D. Ashpool

    Seems really good and arrived quickly.Good value for money and sounds great.

  • K. T. Liam

    Bought it as a shareholder. Better than expected performance with no distortion even when played at loud voume. It even sounds better than my car speaker system when used in the car.!

  • G. Wilkerson

    The SB Roar is great. It does everything the reviews say and is a joy to listen to. Very glad I bought it!

  • J. Davidson

    This is an amazing little unit! The sound quality just blew our minds. It was so easy to set up too. Out of the box, it took just minutes before it was up and running. I have no idea why this brand is not more well known? I couldn't find it in any major stores, but chose it due to some online reviews I saw comparing similar devices. Thank goodness the Creative Store was there and it was a fantastic price too. It also arrived really quickly despite being the Christmas period. Thanks!!

  • Q. Wang

    awesome product!!! very good sound is clear and bassy. connects well with phones

  • A. Fernandes

    Great sound, easy to operate.

  • P. K. SOONG

    Excellent stuff. Don't judge by the look or size as the sound is fantastic.

  • W. H. Jun

    I really love the creative sound blaster roar and it is acting as my soundbar for my tv in my room now. The bass is deep and the speaker is loud! The cons are the inability to adjust the eq and the remote control app by creative doesn't work on the roar. Please update the app asap!

  • D. Page

    Fantastic sound and seems great quality. The extra star could easily be awarded if the controls were a little more intuitive. You do need instructions to know what the controls do.

  • L. Safiyuddin

    Very impressive product. I think it's a product of local Singapore, which makes it all the more special. Keep it up. This is something you have to hear to believe. Such a small product with such powerful sound/bass. And I really mean powerful!

  • G. Baker

    absolutely brilliant product, the best sound and the best value on the market right now well done creative

  • R. Robinson

    What a great product.Really cool look,great features and the sound has to be heard to be appreciated.Many of my friends have sat in my lounge and asked "where is the music coming from?" When I show them the Roar they are always astounded that such a compact set up can produce sound of such quality. One of the best additions to my digital/wifi set up yet.Don't hesitate-buy one now!

  • W. Madden

    Surpassed my expectations - easy to connect and amazing sound.

  • m. hurley

    Brilliant!!! Superb Bluetooth Speaker. Awesome Sound For Such A Small Portable Speaker! Take It Anywhere! Enough Bass & Clear Sound, & Using A PC Or Tablet Add Software To Add More Punch To The Roar!

  • W. L. Ong

    I bought this as a birthday present for my husband. He absolutely loves it, the quality of the sound is good with this kind of price. And it's small and easy to carry around.

  • M. H. Tan

    I have used two units of Sound Blaster Roar and I can attest it that the speakers can easily match up or surpass well known brands in the market. The sound produced for the Bass, Mid Range and the Highs is perfectly engineered to any Audio Hi Fi user. The Bass is good and the Highs is not ear piecing which gives comfort for long hours of listening pleasure. Sound Blaster Roar is a beautiful personal sound speaker that can be easily carried around. I must thank Creative Singapore for coming up with this wonderful product and all accorlades goes to Mr. Sim Wong Hoo for bringing to the Hi Fi market of personal sound machine - a truely Sngapore Super Brand product. I can say I am proud to own such a pair of nice sound machine the Sound Blaster Roar.

  • L. G. T. Lim

    The sound is great! Better than what is expected.

  • C. H. GOH

    Great speaker at very reasonable price. Sound quality is excellent, great bass and clear treble. Even at high volumes the sound remained stable and there is no noise or rattling. Bluetooth connection is a breeze. Tested at mid volume and played continuously, the battery lasted 9hrs.

  • C. Jinks

    Been looking for a compact quality Bluetooth speaker for a while but was not convinced elsewhere by balance of quality to price. Was persuaded to try by strong independent reviews - further ehanxd by special price offer direct from manufacturer. Has performed superbly straight out of the box. Easy connection and stunning sound from such a small speaker set - thoroughly recommended!

  • G. Mercone

    La Sound Blaster Roar è un'ottima compagna di viaggio, ricca di funzionalità, con un suono ricco e potente sia in toni alti che bassi. Non si può chiedere di più a questo prezzo. Ovviamente consigliatissima! Giuseppe

  • W. P. Limarno

    The output sound is good and easy to connect for multiple devices

  • L. S. Wong

    The build is solid and sound great. Love it

  • N. Sng

    The sound quality is superb with 1 set. If the second set is connected to make it a full stereo, it sound even better.

  • C. Williams

    Have had this for a few weeks now and what a great buy. Sound quality is excellent with deep bass tones and rich mid & high tones. Plenty enough volume to annoy the neighbours and a few useful extras thrown in like the NFC capability, the micro SD slot, the record facility and the option to pair it with another unit for true stereo and even louder volume. Oh, and don't forget it will charge your phone if connected by a cable. A very nice piece of kit and a very reasonable price.

  • c. costelloe

    Best speaker I have ever owned and came at a good price, the quality is great and with the added roar feature is great for a party or going out, the extra cable is an added bonus to something that is already amazing 10/10

  • c. crowe

    Excellent speaker worth the price compared to other so called high end speakers! Several work colleagues have now purchased one as a result of playing music whilst at work.

  • B. Ow

    This is a FANTASTIC product! I love the sound that it delivers! The battery also lasts a very long time! This is definitely going to be Creative's new winner product!

  • H. -

    Good sound and perfect

  • I. Hassan

    Compact n powerful with great bass sound.. But a bit heavy though. Overall luv it

  • A. Ryback

    Your online promotion of the Roar convinced me to buy it. The package arrived in three days which kind of shocked me. Anyway, I must admit I was skeptical concerning all the accolades attributed to the Roar. However, once I got it set up and tweaked it with the Sound Blaster control panel, well, I was completely amazed at the superb sound emanating from this small package. I have the Roar connected to my laptop and it sits on my large kitchen table. My primary use is listening to online radio, mostly classical music, smooth jazz, country and selected talk programs. Radio never sounded better. I've also played my micro SD card, with 45 albums on it and CDs. No matter which media format I use, the sound is exceptional. There is no distortion. The lows are strong and clear, as are mid and high register sounds. And, I mean exceptionally clear. I'm not going to comment on all of the Roar's features as it's simply to much to cover. To me it's all about the sound. We live in a three bedroom apartment and the Roar can easily fill the apartment with quality sound, which means for me, that I don't have to muck about with home theater system to hear quality music or radio. Through the years I've purchased a number Creative sound products, which were good and performed well, but the Sound Blaster SR20A Roar is not just a good performer, its performance is absolutely outstanding. Not just well done, but very well done!

  • b. Jarrett

    Outstanding product, great sounds!

  • S. Thanikachalam

    Really nice to hear songs from Sound Blaster Roar, quality audio and very good bass experience

  • j. masnawi

    what i like best about the roar is bluetooth connectivity is hassle free and fast.

  • J. Janssens

    Love it! Great sound!

  • A. Chisholm

    For its size the sound is deep and very rich. Bluetooth connection simple

  • R. Tooley

    The design of this speaker is quite aesthetically pleasing and the overall sound quality is surprisingly good! The bass/terabass <"subwoofer" sound>, can be/is extremely effective too,depending on the media being played. The "ROAR" function also does a nifty job of helping to expand the soundfield. However,be prepared for annoying Bluetooth connectivity dropouts! I'd certainly recommend this product,but I do suggest that you try to get a demo before buying.

  • c. price

    fantastic product -brilliant sound - great value for me. Would highly recommend this.

  • D. Doyle

    The SB Roar is extraordinary - so much quality, bass and volume in such a small package. It's surprisingly heavy for its size (which is a product of its build quality, especially the remarkable subwoofer output), which means I can't carry it everywhere on my bike, otherwise I'd show it off to everybody! There are features I suspect I'll never use - the siren (haven't tried it yet) and the SD card player (I have plenty of other machines I play through it) - but this is a very minor quibble. I'm listening to it now in my living room, and it fills it effortlessly. OK, it's not a castle banqueting hall, but they can sort out their own sound system. 5 stars.

  • R. D. Smith

    In the past I have owned several sound blaster cards, headsets and speakers, and was always pleased with the products. After having followed the hype of the new creative product 'the roar' for several months, I finally owned one of my own. I was pleasently surprised at the quality of sound the Roar delivered, and I'm completly satisfied with the product.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • MCCT

    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.
