Summary: 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.
Summary: I wanted to like this thing. I'll admit I entered this review period with a bit of a bias: I like actual stereo, with two speakers, considerably more than this sort of a set up. But I had an open mind and thought that this might be really good. Sadly, it didn't meet my hopes. First of all, sound quality for music is only mediocre. I don't find it as terrible as some have claimed here, but it certainly wasn't great.
Summary: Each speaker comes with a braided USB cable that while looking nice are a bit stiff. The top surface is a touch sensitive white LED back-lit (nice white LED) interactive control panel giving you easy access to the most desired controls. The front and sides of the body are covered entirely in typical speaker grille fabric from top to bottom. How this will hold up over time is to be seen.
Nice speaker with built in mic for office, iPad, etc.

Summary: This is a nice compact speaker unit. It's about two feet tall, so it's not real small, but it packs a decent punch for its size. The speakers are ported, so they have a relatively rich and full sound, definitely an upgrade from most built-in speakers, and better than many standard external speakers. It has a quite clear sound. One nice feature is a built-in mic, so this unit can serve as speaker for Skype or FaceTime conversations.
so-so sound quality; speakerphone calling option is good!

Summary: 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: 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: 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. WHAT I LIKE: - The tower design is great because it can be used wherever there is little floor space or tabletop available - It was a snap to connect it to my iPhone via Bluetooth - The accompanying...
Summary: 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.
