Creative Sound Blaster Wireless Rock speaker rocks out

Creative rocks with a rock speaker

| Audio, Sound & Speakers News | Posted: Sep 1, 2010 7:08 pm

Creative has been around for years and the company is probably most known by gamers for its line of Sound Blaster sound cards for PCs. The company also has a number of popular MP3 players and a myriad of other offerings including speakers and headphones. Creative has unveiled a new weatherproof outdoor speaker for the music fan called the Sound Blaster Wireless Rock.

The speaker sells for $199.99 and is available to purchase right now. The thing uses 2.4GHz wireless technology to connect to your PC and has a wireless range of 100 feet. The speaker strangely lacks a wireless transmitter, you have to buy that separately.

 

Power for the speaker comes from a detachable rechargeable battery pack promising six hours of music from a single charge. The speaker measures 12" x 11.2" x 13.8" and weighs 6.3kg with the battery pack. I have to say this thing seems expensive to ship without the transmitter you need to use it. There are other offerings on the market that are very similar for the same price or less that have all you need to listen.
