CREATIVE WIRELESS BLUETOOTH SPEAKER 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
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 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. The 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!
- 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.
- 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
