Workmanship and Operation of the Creative iRoar Go
The Creative iRoar Go comes in a cuboid design. It is equipped with three active loudspeakers and two passive radiators. These are exposed on the sides. The operating elements are divided into two surfaces, so that the latter can be operated on one side upright and on the other side flat.
All interfaces are located behind rubber flaps, which are optimally protected against rain when closed. The Creative iRoar Go can even be used in the shower without any problems. However, the speakers are not suitable for diving.
With its handy dimensions of 54 mm x 192 mm x 97 mm and low weight of 810 g, the Creative iRoad Go is the ideal companion on the go. The device can therefore easily be gripped with just one hand. We rate the quality of the workmanship as good.
The iRoar Go from Creative can be easily operated via its buttons as well as via the corresponding app. The Sound Blaster Connect App does not only offer functions of the buttons on the iRoar Go. It also includes further options for individual sound adjustment and exclusive access to connected storage media.
The iRoar Go has various coupling options for wireless connection of a smartphone via Bluetooth and NFC. In addition
- one MicroSD slot
can be accessed. With the Micro SD slot, however, you should note that only memory cards up to 32 GB are suitable. With a built-in microphone, you can also use the speaker as a speakerphone or recording device. This works surprisingly well – much better than with the hands-free function of my Samsung Galaxy S7.
In addition, on the back of the Bluetooth loudspeaker are the buttons for
- Random playback.
The Roar key can be used to increase the complete volume. Thanks to the TeraBass function, bass loss can be prevented.
With its design, the Creative iRoar Go fits harmoniously into the ROAR series. Because of the remote pages it looks a little more kerniger.
