Creative today announced the launch of a brand new variant of the critically acclaimed Sound Blaster Roar portable Bluetooth wireless speaker − the smaller and lighter Sound Blaster Roar 2.

The all new Sound Blaster Roar 2 portable Bluetooth wireless speaker retains the same 5 speaker drivers, electrical design, and battery life as the Classic Sound Blaster Roar − but is now  20% smaller and 10% lighter. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 is available in black colour.

Encased in a stylish sleek housing that exudes the understated sophistication of a well-designed audio instrument, the smaller-lighter-sexier Sound Blaster Roar 2 continues to impress, whether it is used at the office, in a designer home, or at a party. The Sound Blaster Roar 2 also comes with two all new features not found on the original Sound Blaster Roar:

Like the Classic Sound Blaster Roar, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 comes packed with a whole host of useful features:

Integrated MicroSD WMA and MP3 player

The Sound Blaster Roar 2 features an integrated MicroSD WMA and MP3 player that allows users to play audio directly from a MicroSD card, so users do not need to always commit their smartphone to just playing music.  The player even allows users to skip music folders so that they can navigate to their songs faster without having to tediously cycle through all their individual tracks.

Speakerphone Teleconferencing

With its built-in high quality microphone providing for clear 360° voice pickup, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 is able to take calls when connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth.

Integrated Voice Recorder

The Sound Blaster Roar 2 features an Integrated Voice Recorder that utilizes the speaker’s built-in microphone, allowing for versatile one-touch recording of all kinds of audio − calls, external voices, or streamed music − directly to an insertable MicroSD card.  The feature is ideal for recording voice memos, lectures, interviews, teleconferencing sessions, and business/corporate meetings.

NFC-Enabled Bluetooth with Multipoint and HD Audio Codec Support

The speaker is able to connect wirelessly via Bluetooth, and utilizes the aptX and AAC codecs for the highest quality audio and lowest possible latency.  The sound booklet also features the latest Near-Field Communication (NFC) technology, allowing users to quickly and easily connect to Bluetooth devices, requiring only a simple tap from an NFC-enabled smart device to the speaker to pair and establish a connection.  Users can also connect two Bluetooth devices to the Sound Blaster Roar 2 simultaneously.

Bedtime Mode

In Bedtime Mode, the Sound Blaster Roar 2 gradually reduces its volume before automatically shutting down.  The feature allows users to be gently and gradually lulled to sleep, and at the same time preserves the speaker’s battery by turning it off after a predetermined time, instead of leaving it switched on for the whole night.  Parents of young children would also appreciate the feature − they can record themselves reading out a bedtime story, and play the recording back to their children as they are falling asleep.

USB Audio with Sound Blaster Enhancement

The Sound Blaster Roar 2 is not just a wireless speaker for smart devices.  Users can connect it to their PCs or Macs via USB to enjoy clear digital audio for their desktops or laptops.  Connecting the speaker via USB enables advanced PC audio processing via the downloadable software, Sound Blaster Control Panel, and full access to the SBX Pro Studio suite of technologies that intelligently enhance audio in real time.

SBX Pro Studio Features:

  • SBX Crystalizer − Restores the “highs” and “lows” that are compromised during audio compression to create and audio experience as the original artist intended
  • SBX Smart Volume − Intelligently minimizes abrupt volume changes by automatically adjusting the loudness of audio playback
  • SBX Dialog Plus − Intelligently enhances voices in music and movies for drastically clearer vocal range
  • SBX Bass − Dramatically improves the sound experience by expanding the low frequency tones
  • SBX Surround − Creates unprecedented levels of audio realism by producing virtual speakers around, above and below the listener

Dual Purpose Battery

The Sound Blaster Roar 2 also features a Dual Purpose Battery.  The large, built-in 6000 mAh Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery can be used to charge smartphones and tablets, beyond providing up to 8 hours of audio playback.

Pricing and Availability

The Sound Blaster Roar 2 portable Bluetooth wireless speaker is available in Black only and is priced at  Rs. 16,999. It will be exclusively available on Amazon India from Mid-May 2016 onwards.
