Expensive for what it is!

  • Summary: We gave our previous little speaker away to a friend and needed one for the kitchen as my wife likes to have some music on while she's cooking. Happy wife = happy husband and all that :) Anyway. This one looked like it would serve the functionality of both being able to play music and also if she needs to take any calls while she's cooking. Couple of limitations: 1. Requires USB power cable to work.

Is this a Speaker or Squeaker?

  • Summary: Standing at approx 6.5"and 3" wide, this speaker is basically a plastic tube covered in fuzzy fabric. The touch controls on the top light up when it's connected to a power source - in my case my laptop - via the USB cable. The sound is okay, but no better than the built-in speakers on my laptop, so I was disappointed as I had expected a really loud sound from it.

Sounds like what it is, a small speaker.

  • Summary: Creative Sound Blaster Axx SBX 8 is the smallest of the 3 SBX's. As such there should be a clear market for such a small speaker. Sadly I can't think of one. Surely if you are big on sound to the point of spending clost to a hundred pounds you may as well choose Sound Blaster's superior, larger models (or surround speakers of course). The Sound Blaster also wants to be what the soundbar is to surround sound, an average imitation of the real thing.

True plug and play but the sound quality is only average

  • Summary: The SBX8 is the smallest of Creative's new range of Axx devices, said to combine Creative's expertise in sound processing and loudspeakers in one. The Axx range are all hexagonal columns of varying size, containing stacked speaker drivers and the latest sound processing chip. I have mixed feelings about Creative products; the original SoundBlasters were THE sound card to have in your PC back in the 90's for gaming and music.
