Summary: By CG I ordered this speaker to be able to play my iTunes from a different room, so I don't have to move my PC. It was able to pick up the music via Bluetooth with no problem and play the music well and much louder than either my laptop speaker or my desktop speakers ever could. I had limited use of the iOS app, but it seemed to work well. My friend and I were able to play music and the sound from YouTube videos without much problem once the app was installed.
so-so sound quality; speakerphone calling option is good!

Summary: By Hedera Femme This is the second "Creative" brand wireless bluetooth speaker with microphone, and so far, the sound quality has not been very good. The first, "Creative Sound BlasterAxx SBX10 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Microphone" was $127.04 (list price $149.99), and this one currently has a list price of $199.99. I cannot hear any discernable difference in sound quality, though this speaker is larger than the other.
Summary: By Jacx "J.C." I tried this on a new pc I bought that was in need of speakers. It has good clean sound, easy to hear and understand dialog even at low listening levels. Bass begins to sound blown out over 30% volume though. Its one speaker and sound comes from one direction, more so the closer you are to the speaker. I moved it to another room with a pc that is in a built in desk area and short on space. It does a great job in a small space.
Summary: By William W. Davis "famousdavis" QUICK SUMMARY: This mini-tower has been in our living room for a few months. Nobody uses it much, though, because music that is played from this speaker just doesn't sound very good. If you want to use it for phone calls or Skype sessions, it's fine, but it's not for music.
Summary: By lainibug This Sound BlasterAxx is a great speaker with a lot of good features. Everything works as described, which means it has some really cool things that I haven't found in any other bluetooth device. First, it's a really good bluetooth speaker. Good sound quality, rich bass, etc. Second, it's a great bluetooth microphone for phone calls.
Summary: By Nuknuk The SBX20 is the biggest of the three siblings. It is a Bluetooth tower speakers that also works through an auxiliary input. I didn't have any problem connecting my phone, iPad and iMac pairing via Bluetooth. Although the biggest of the three, it only stands 18 inches high. It has a wind port at the back which is typical of a good quality bass producing speakers which makes me very excited to try it out.
Summary: By Peace Daddy "Eclectic ReflectionZ" I have previously reviewed the Creative Sound BlasterAxx SBX8 Audio Speaker with Microphone, which is about 1/4 the size of the SBX20 (and less than half the price). I was satisfied with the SBX8, and I'm equally satisfied with the SBX20. It took longer to get everything out of its packaging than it did to actually get it set up on my PC.
Terrible sound quality, requires an app to use correctly. Terrible value.

Summary: By Doc Stew I really wanted to like this speaker! I LOVE Creative products, and for a $200 speaker, I had very high hopes. According to the specs, this thing does it all - plays music via bluetooth or 3.5 mm aux in, and you can use it for phone calls. But the old adage "jack of all trades, master of none" applies here. First and foremost, this is a speaker, so sound quality is most important. And sadly, this speaker disappoints immensely on that front.
