Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 review

 

The Roar 2 packs the same growl as the original, but looks better after dieting for a few months.

The best way to look at the Roar 2 is to simply consider it the same as the original Roar, albeit looking better after dieting for a few months. (Maybe it should have been called Roar 1.5?) Some cosmetic changes give it a slight makeover, but it’s...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2

 

The Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 has plenty of unique features you don't typically see on Bluetooth speakers, but there are slightly better-sounding models for the price.

Built-in MP3 player. Voice recorder. USB DAC. Solid sound quality.

Not as crisp or as powerful as other speakers in this price range.

Like the original, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is an intriguing multi-tool of a portable speaker. It can do a lot of different things and its performance is satisfying, especially for a price tag closer to $150 than $200. If you want the best sound...

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Roar 2 Speaker Review

 

It might not be rugged or waterproof, and not very “portable” but it’s certainly one of the best Bluetooth speakers I’ve used to date. One I can recommend without hesitation. This is a perfect gift for the holiday season. Creative also sells a carry...

Review: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Roar 2 speaker

 

Creative Labs likes to do things big by packing its speakers with power and features. The original Roar, which we reviewed last year, delivered impressive sound and functionality. As an encore to the original, the Roar 2 is designed to be 20 percent...

speakers, the Roar 2 can power mobile devices via the USB output port, and play music directly from an inserted microSD card. Track controls allow navigation through folders and the songs therein, although this tends to be easier said than done. If the...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 NFC/Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review

 

Priced higher than most, will the crazy amount of features of the Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Bluetooth speaker make up for the extra investment?

Creative’s Sound Blaster Roar 2 Has Ferocious Sound – Review

 

The Creative Sound Blaster Roar blew us away the first time around — following it up wasn't going to be easy. Fortunately, we're happy to report that the portable Bluetooth speaker has been upgraded and is slimmer and better than ever as the Sound...

Tons of capabilities, fantastic sound, long battery life, serves as a portable power source to other devices, bedtime mode

So many features it can be overwhelming at first, the carrying case does not completely close and is awkward to use

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 Review

 

Creatives original Roar product was often praised for its performance and features…but nothing is perfect and the industry moves on. So today we take a look at Creatives smaller, feature packed portable speaker, in our Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2...

Starting with the build quality and design of the Roar 2 we have a product which very much impresses. Of the two, probably the black version suits our tastes more… and for a product which is to be used on the move it will likely stay looking nicer for...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2: Same same but different

 

Creative's original Sound Blaster Roar was quite the runaway hit when it was released, and now the new Sound Blaster Roar 2 looks to fill the needs of customers who loved the sound of the original Roar, but wanted something a little more portable. We...

Smaller size makes it easier to move around ; Still very good audio performance ; Good list of features

Doesn't feel substantially lighter compared to the original ; Poor stereo separation

As with the Sound Blaster Roar, setting up is a simple process. Simply enable NFC on your phone and tap the NFC spot on the right of the speaker, or hold down the Bluetooth button till it starts blinking and then go into the Bluetooth settings on your...

Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 review: Big audio, basic design

 

When the original Creative Sound Blaster Roar landed on our desk last year we were impressed by the big sound from its small scale. Now it's the turn of the more compact, more powerful, yet more expensive sequel: the Roar 2. Although to Creative Sound...

Decent sound from a small package, solid build

Exposed ports not the prettiest, more expensive than original

Although to Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 couldn't be called a reference speaker, for its small size it really kicks out quality audio. There's plenty of bass considering the size, which otherwise typically lacks from such portable Bluetooth speakers.
