REVIEWS

Sound Guys

If you just need something to relay sound from your desktop on the cheap this soundbar has you covered. It gets fairly loud for its size and doesn't need to be relegated to the monitor station alone; rather this speaker can blend in nearly anywhere and can entertain a small group of friends, too.

Tech Radar

For $40 (£45, around AU$70) the Stage Air is less than a pair of headphones from most brands, and offers a serious update on the tinny-sounding computer speakers you're used to hearing. Sure, it's probably not the product that's going to replace the surround sound setup in your living room, but Creative is a company that excels at making products that punch above their weight.

PCMag

For the price, the Stage Air delivers solid audio quality, and if you truly want a soundbar under your computer monitor, it's one of the few we've tested. As long as you don't expect it to sound like a powerful, TV-sized soundbar, the Stage Air is a solid, wallet-friendly investment for a computer setup—or as a Bluetooth speaker that mobile devices can stream to.

Customer Reviews

So very impressed. The sound quality from this device is brilliant. I trusted my purchase from the start simply because it's a creative developed product but on receipt and first use, I was gobsmacked, considering its size, how awesome this little bar is. My plan was to keep it by the PC monitor but I've gotten accustomed to it's mobility. It's even in the shed with me when I'm working on something. It's like my little music pet. The various connectivity options make it easy to use right out the box though I'd suggest investment in longer cables if that's your connection option. Other than that, what a joyful, great sounding package.

L. W. Kin

Item received well packed. Sound produce was awsome for that price range.

E. Racine

This was a good basic sound bar. I'm using it in the garage for a blutooth speaker for my phone. The sound is ok. Better than the shelf stereo I had there. Mounted on a wall.
