Creative unveils Sound Blaster Roar 2 Bluetooth speakers in India for 16,999 INR. These speakers will exclusively retail on Amazon.in starting from ‘Mid May, 2016’.
The new Sound Blaster Roar, with pulsating bass radiators, also feature 5 speaker drivers, but are more portable being 10 percent lighter and 20 percent smaller than the previous generation model. More orientation options have also been added. You can place them horizontally or vertically depending on your needs.
An interesting Bedtime mode gradually reduces the volume, before completely shutting down for seamless sleep transition.
The built in microphone allows you to take calls directly from the speakers. Moreover, the integrated recorder facilitates call recording so you don’t have to bother with fidgeting your smartphone. The feature can also be used for recording voice memos, lectures, interviews, teleconferencing sessions, and business/corporate meetings.
Connectivity options include NFC, Bluetooth with aptX and USB 2.0. Creative Sound Blaster Roar 2 also supports AAC codecs for good quality audio. The 6000 mAh battery inside will last for 8 hours of uninterrupted playback as per company claims.
“The original Classic Sound Blaster Roar was an amazing feat of audio engineering. It was truly a speaker that defied the laws of acoustic engineering. We razed through countless designs and overcame seemingly impossible design obstacles. In the end we created a portable Bluetooth wireless speaker with powerful killer audio and kickass thumping bass in a size no larger than a booklet.” said Mr Sim Wong Hoo, Creator of the Sound Blaster and CEO of Creative Technology Ltd.
