This time we have in our test review the winner of the Red Dot Award 2014 in the category “Product Design” – Sound Blaster Roar SR20. The appearance of the column really deserves attention. For all its simplicity of form, this is perhaps the most stylish product in the Creative line. The speaker is made of perforated aluminum with a chrome finish and is slightly larger than a book. But most importantly, the column has truly unique features that are currently not found in any other similar product. It's a wireless, standalone speaker with a media player and many more cool features …
The built-in 6000 mAh battery allows you to listen to music for up to eight hours without interruption. And the Sound Blaster Roar's ability to play MP3, WMA or WAV audio files from a plug-in Micro SD makes the speaker a completely self-contained music source. This speaker can be taken with you to nature. In addition, the device has a USB output for charging third-party devices, the same iPhone.
Connecting Bluetooth devices does not break the difficulties. The column supports simultaneous connection of two devices. The transition from one source to another occurs through a pause in the playback of the track.
The column surprises with its powerful sound not in size. But due to its rather solid weight, the body does not bounce or rattle. Like all earlier tested Creative products, the Sound Blaster Roar SR20 has excellent bass – this is a proprietary one.

If you understand the technical features, it will become clear why the speaker sounds like that. Inside the Sound Blaster Roar, there are as many as five speakers spaced apart on four sides. They are powered by two amplifiers. One is one for low and mid, and one for low frequencies. All this provides the highest quality sound.
If that's not enough, the device still has the magic Roar button. Pressing it adds volume, and the built-in processor tries to optimally process the sound.
There are several interesting modes of operation for the Sound Blaster Roar SR20:
- The first is going to sleep. When turned on, the playback volume gradually decreases and completely turns off after 15 or 30 minutes.
- The second is the speaker's operation in Hands Free mode. When the phone call can be output through the speaker speakers. It doesn't matter if it's a mobile call or Skype. The microphone's sensitivity is enough to talk within the room.
- The third is a recording of telephone conversations that are broadcast in Hands Free mode. For this, there is a Rec button on the body. The files will be saved to the inserted Micro-SD card.
- In addition, the column can work as an alarm clock and even as a siren.
The Sound Blaster Roar SR20 is the most feature-rich music system to date. It's even difficult to come up with any other Wishlist. The speaker can be a universal source of music for a small room and outdoors.
