Summary: The Creative Airwave Portable Bluetooth is really a good little wireless speaker for just about anywhere you want to take it very easy set up operation only disappointment I have was the sound quality is not the best but truly not the worst either that is the reason for my two star rating but for the price all in all a great product
It sounds like an AM radio coming from my iPad and Android ...
7 October 2014
Summary: If I didn't get it under the Deal of the Day, I would have returned this thing. The sound is just awful. I don't ask for much but boy, the sound from this speaker is flat and I mean flat. It sounds like an AM radio coming from my iPad and Android Tablet. I do have to say it is loud. Not loud where it will shake your walls. That's how this sounds to me. Songs purchased from iTunes and also a purchased song from Amazon were flat we well.
Summary: Anyone giving this device over three stars honestly doesn't know any better. I bought two of these for $30, one for myself and another as a gift. I am somewhat of a bluetooth speaker junkie, and own 5 others before the purchase of this one. I feel as if this gives me a bit of credibility when it comes to reviewing these types of devices. First off, this thing was MUCH larger than expected when I took it out of the box.
Summary: It has a solid look and feel. The NSF pairing is nice, but it really drops the ball when it comes to audio quality, the sound seems very hollow. I have a Philips SoundShooter which is 1/5 the size, only has one speaker and seems to be louder and has better audio quality. I wouldn't recommend this, it's very large and for it's size doesn't have very good sound.
Summary: I am rather disappointed with this speaker. The unit is large while the sound is small and lacking bass. It is huge compared to my JBL Flip, but no match for sound. When connected by cable to my PC it clicks and rumbles which none of my other speakers do (so not a problem with my PC). I can't recommend this product.
Summary: Portability: 5 Tech: 9 Sound: 3 Value: 3 It is a portable wireless speaker, so equally important are portability, sound and the technical connectivity bit. Sadly the Airwave HD stumbles at the first hurdle with its surprising (in a bad way) weight - it is a brick, and has been cunningly designed with smooth angles so that it is extremely easy to drop - think summer afternoons and slippery sweaty hands and you have a broken toe to look forward to.
