The Creative iRoar Go came in a nice looking printed box with photos of the speaker, as well as it’s feature and specs. Opening the box revealed a well protected speaker. It had a great heft to it, and felt very well made. The buttons also worked well with good feedback. Also included was power adapter, micro USB cable, 3.5mm microphone adapter, and user manual.
Linking to my HTC One M9 smartphone was very simple. And unlike many Bluetooth devices, I was able to pair the two together on the 1st try. So it has a very good quality Bluetooth radio. And to really put the radio quality to the test, I went all around our large 3700 square foot location. All around the 1st floor where it was set up, and all around up the stairs, with at times up to 6 walls between my HTC One M9 smartphone and the iRoar Go. Only a couple times was there a hickup in sound for a split second. And in testing the distance, I was glad to see no problems at 25 feet, so I kept going. At 50 feet I was even more impressed. And I didn't lose connection until I was around 70 feet away. ..quit impressive! I also love the fact that there are other connection options for listening to your music on the iRoar Go, such as microSD card, and flash drives. No it's finally time to listen to how it sounds.
The Creative iRoarGo proved to have the sound that the iRoar series has come to be known for. I was very pleased to see that same things didn’t charge. The iRoar series continues to go strong. Based on the design, features, quality, and performance, the iRoarGo has earned our Highly Recommended award. For more info and complete specs, check out their website at www.us.creative.com.
