I've had many bluetooth speakers over the years and this is certainly one of the best I've used. It's stylish, good looking and the sound is impressive.
Amazing build quality
Full of features
Well balanced sound with awesome bass
Superb battery life
Can be charged by usb
Some of the features I don't think I'll ever use
I have used the Bose and was impressed at the styling and the sound was faultless.Bose ® SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III
Then along came this little gem. Does it look better? I don't think it does. But it has charm, warmth and is the perfect guest. So in terms of looks the bose wins. But only just.
This is where I thought the bose would win hands down. But side by side, I actually prefer the ROAR. The bass is more natural but loud.
It's clear, defined, and resounding.
The "ROAR" (I'm sorry but I have to put it in capitols) has 5 speaker drivers and a bi-amp design
Two 1.5" forward facing, far-field high frequency drivers
Active, high-excursion 2.5" driver that handles bass and mid frequencies.
Passive bass radiator.
Computer speaker via usb
playback via Micro SD
An SIREN function
charger via usb
There's loads more and they work well. But I'm not sure I'll ever use the record a telephone conversation feature.
WOW WOW WOW
Apart from the gimmicky features it really is a fantastic and impressive speaker. The sound can be low, with added bass or extraordinarily loud! For example I took this to the local park. It was loud from 50 metres away.
I would marry this if I was allowed to. (I can't for two reasons: one I'm already married and secondly it's much younger than me)
It does turn heads though. Sleek and much better looking in real life that the photos. I know you shouldn't say this, particularly in 2015, but it's a foxy looking speaker.
Cheaper than the bose but just as well made.
Beautiful looking speaker with a fabulous sound. It's one to put on the shortlist if you're after a quality speaker.
Hope this helps.
