Creative Sound Blaster Roar

After reviewing the X-mini CLEAR and asking my fellow tech blogger, Renhao, who is an audiophile, we came to conclusion that X-mini CLEAR isn’t worth S$299.

So I decided to get another portable speaker for my dad. Renhao recommended the Creative Sound Blaster Roar and besides him, I also read many online reviews saying the Roar is good and value for money.

UE BOOM

Launched last month, the UE BOOM is a 360° Bluetooth wireless speaker which is water resistant and even shock proof. It is out in stores retailing for S$299 and available in 4 colors (Blue, Red, Black and White).

My first impression of UE BOOM is the sound is loud and the bass is pretty good, the only downside is that it is a little pricey.

ATake Rain Dance Speakers

Received the ATake Rain Dance Speakers from my cousin as a gift. If you are interested in purchasing it, it is selling for S$39.90 at Challenger, Courts, Popular and Newstead.

I think the ATake Rain Dance Speakers is good for outdoor parties (like a BBQ) or you can buy it for a gift exchange, it is not really something that you would use it with your desktop computer as the sound produced is a little muffled.
