Colour Name: Grey|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Wireless or Bluetooth speakers are the latest must have accessory for your tablet/ smartphone and this is Creative's latest entrant into an increasingly crowded marketplace.

It comes in different colours ( review is of the anonymous looking grey one) and first impressions on lifting it from the well designed packaging and removing the protective wrap were favourable. Clean lines, good build quality, perhaps a little plasticky but good enough for bedrooms, studies etc.

Lightweight for portability ( considerably lighter than other so called portable speakers that I have tried), charging of the built in battery was easy. Jconnect the charger cable to a USB socket and after an initial recommended 8 hour charge, you are ready togo. Disappointing that Creative didn't also include a USB/ mains adaptor and wish you to buy one separately. Still. I used my tablet's USB/charger adaptor and that seemed to work just fine.

The unit boasts NFC which basically gives easy connection to your Bluetooth device. Sadly,my iPhones and iPads don't have NFC so I can't verify that function. I can however say that the standard Bluetooth pairing and operation was extremely easy to achieve and use in practice. All the family's iPhones,iPads, windows phones etc. were paired without any difficulty and the proof of the speaker's ease of use must be the fact that someone always seems to have it in action!

If you really want to you can receive mobile phone calls via the speaker. Useful to some and achievable because a microphone has also been built in to the unit, a first for me in 'leisure' units.

I am no audio expert but the Creative's sound quality seems very good for the price range. If you are a real audiophile, I suspect you would in any case be heading to considerably more expensive premium brands.

Truly portable, the battery life will of course depend on volume etc. but we have managed over 11 hours without recharge so a pretty respectable performance.

Our main niggle is that the multifunction button (with voice prompts!) requires some effort to actually shut the unit down. A simple on/off switch would have sufficed and bee just as effective.

Why only 4 stars? The rather unnecessary lengthening of the switch off via the multifunction button.

Overall, however, this a small wireless speaker that belies its simple looks with some effective advanced features and a strong performance. Proof of its appeal must be that my 10 year old daughter and her friends think it is"ultra cool" and, between them and the rest of the family, I have struggled to get it back. Going to have to buy another one....

I'm a great fan of Creative so no huge surprise that this turns out to be a winner. I've no expert ear but the quality of the sound seems first class....whatever the woofers and tweeters are supposed to be doing it feels like they're doing it right.
In terms of firing it up...that was all remarkably straightforward considering my normal levels of ineptitude. So bottom line....I recommend you give it a go....

Pretty good sound, even in the bass frequencies. Solidly built. Weighs a bit more than I thought it would, but that's probably why it feels solid. I don't mind the colour. Green was the cheapest one.

Really great value for a great performing portable speaker with bluetooth and NFC, the pink version is nicer to own than it looks.

There is something really great about a speaker that you connect to your phone and it plays via blue tooth add to that the portability aspect and your onto a winner.

I always think that when you buy a speaker it can be very hit and miss. I purchased a similar very well known brand paid an arm and leg and have to unplug it and cart it around the house when a want music in another room add to that its connected via a jack and you are already struggling.

This speaker charges via a lead but will unplug and if you want you can take it out into the garden and it will still work. Add to that it connects via your blue tooth. You either put your device to the rear of the speaker or connect via the blue tooth search button on your device and hey presto instant music without a plug socket in sight. It provides its owner with amazing clarity and volume it is really really amazing. You can also wonder away from your speaker with your phone in pocket and the music is uninterrupted.

My hubby spent hours tinkering in his shed at the weekend listening to Pink Floyd and working hard, all this he did without the necessity of an electricity socket and he could hear me if I shouted because his ears were not covered with headphones or buds. He had the freedom to move about unencumbered his phone safely to one side or on his person and no chance of clipping a lead or socket and dragging his iphone onto the floor.

Both he and I are impressed by the sound and clarity of this speaker even at volume so all in all well worth the money. This speaker has one more trick up its sleeve which is it acts as a phone speaker to take phone calls on.
