Creative Sound Blaster i-Roar Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker
Blasterx™ Acoustic Engine FOR Iroar Expect the perfect blend of architecture and intelligent software to deliver great audio beyond your imagination. The BlasterX Acoustic Engine is designed to boost the acoustic performance of your audio for your heightened listening experience. Intelligence Meets Customisation The iRoar is not just a powerful speaker; it is also an intelligent one. Most Bluetooth speakers allow for audio streaming from your smart devices. With the iRoar and the iRoar Dashboard app for iOS and Android, you can personalise your audio. And that's exactly where the iRoar is headed. Its features and functions are fully accessible via the Dashboard app, so you feel like you're interacting directly with your audio. Customisation is the name of the game - from the equaliser to the level of immersion and clarity of your audio. Take joy in creating your own sound signature wherever you go. The Dashboard app saves your most recent configuration. When you pair with another iRoar speaker, your personalised configuration will be automatically loaded into that iRoar! You can make on-the-fly adjustments seamlessly! Equalizer - Allows bass and treble audio adjustments to suit your personal taste. Immersion - Controls your 360-degree surround sound experience. Dialog+ - Improves speech clarity for music, movies and games. Custom Audio Profiles for Your Entertainment Needs The Dashboard app offers multiple sound characteristic profiles that are designed to heighten your audio experience - be it for movies, music playback or your virtual gameplay. Simply select the profile of interest and the iRoar will automatically adjust its settings to deliver the selected characteristic profile accordingly. It is Really Smart Ever wanted to hear every detail of your audio, even at the lowest volume? With Smart Volume, you can achieve that with just a press of the button. The iRoar comes with two modes. When Auto Mode is activated, your audio playback is constantly monitored so you can enjoy your songs at a consistent volume you've configured previously. It also compensates for low quality audio sources with its frequency analysis adjustments. Are you a night owl? Love watching movies at midnight? The Night Mode lets you hear all the details, even when you've reduced the volume. Enjoy the best, while the iRoar takes care of the rest. Your Personal Speakerphone with Mic Beam Technology Be heard loud and clear with the iRoar's beamforming microphones. The Mic Beam technology features two modes that let the speaker pick up sound all around the speaker and within a certain parameter. The 360° mode captures sound all around the speaker, no matter where you are. Alternatively, the Private mode reduces what you don't want to hear. It focuses on picking up sound within a predefined acoustic zone so sounds within this zone will be isolated from your surroundings. Your iRoar Remote Assistant Turn your Android phone or iPhone into an iRoar remote control with the Remote Assistant app! Apart from performing music playback from your phone's media library, the app also allows you to access audio content stored in the microSD card in your iRoar. The best part is, you can view the current track playing from your microSD card - on your smartphone! Your Personal Recorder You can remotely trigger iRoar to record via the app and save your audio sessions into the microSD card. Intelligent Touch Controls Intelligent Touch Controls are adaptive and context sensitive based on the selected mode of the speaker. The relevant buttons light up to show the relevant controls that matter to you. Mind-Shattering Performance ● Precision-Tuned Fidelity ● Roar Audio™ Power Clean, Powerful Bass The active 2.75″ driver pumps out impressive bass. Directing the audio upwards not only stabilises the speaker, but also provides for a wider soundstage that doesn't require the listener to be situated in the audio sweet spot. Even More Bass Enhancement It is further enhanced with dual opposing, side-firing passive radiators that widen the soundstage dramatically. Acoustically Optimized Speaker Design The rigid monocoque endoskeleton chassis has fewer internal components that vibrate individually. This translates into lesser energy wastage and better audio quality. Powerful, High Frequency Drivers Durable and lightweight improved high frequency drivers deliver balanced highs. These dual 2″ premium drivers are also designed to provide far-field high frequency dispersion. Of course, such a collaborative sound system wouldn't be made possible without the intelligence of our proprietary processor, SB-Axx1™. The SB-Axx1 is an audio Digital Signal Processor (Dsp) that enhances your audio experience with clarity. A custom-built audio processor is utilised across all our top performance Sound Blaster products such as the Sound Blaster ZxR, Sound Blaster X7 and the Sound Blaster E5, SB-Axx1 processor provide the computing power required by the iRoar to enhance your audio in real time, giving you superior listening experience for your music, movies and voice calls. Bi-Amplified Design: TWO Amps, NOT ONE While many other portable speakers produce small, constrained sound, the Creative iRoar is designed to deliver powerful space-filling audio. Most portable speakers utilise a single amplifier to reproduce the entire audio spectrum. With the traditional single amplifier design, much demand goes into reproducing the lows and mids, which compromises the delivery of the highs. Through much research and development, the iRoar is designed to accommodate 5 speaker drivers, including a active 2.75″ driver, into a compact booklet-sized form factor. Dual lightweight high-frequency 2″ drivers project far-field high-frequency dispersion while a top-firing active 2.75″ driver pushes bass outwards; and this is enhanced by two side-firing, opposing passive radiators that spreads out the bass even further. The compact powerful iRoar also features 2 high-performance amplifiers - one dedicated to driving lows and mids, another solely for delivering highs - producing clear, spacious, well-balanced audio without compromising on the bass. Space-filling Dispersion The result of all this is that iRoar is able to deliver powerful room-filling audio that is not sweet spot-dependant. When it comes to the speaker stability at high volume levels, the iRoar comes second to none; unlike top-heavy, front/rear-designed speakers that vibrate and move position at high volume levels, the iRoar is stable as a rock even while blasting at maximum volume. Designed for acoustic performance, the top-firing active 2.75″ driver is laid horizontally which increases stability while its rigid monocoque endoskeletal chassis reduces internal components that can vibrate individually. So what you hear is pristine music from an extremely stable speaker, free of annoying vibrations and rattling. Roar Mode: Instant No-holds-barred Audio Power Don't be fooled by its size. 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. All you need is to tap on the Roar button and let the iRoar take care of the rest.
