Big BOOM from a small box!! EXCELLENT product! Also a very useful item for Hurricane seasonSep 19, 2014
Over the years I have tried LOTS of small bluetooth speakers... usually provided by the vendor in exchange for a review -- just like this one. However, none have performed as well as the Creative Muvo.
The speaker itself is almost exactly half the width of my 15" Macbook Pro. It is not as deep as a window sill -- I know this because I use it while doing dishes and place it on the window in front of my sink. The fact that I don't have to worry about splashes ruining the speaker -- or my momentum for doing something I'm not wild about (cleaning) is fantastic!
Set up with both my iPhone and iPad were so incredibly simple I didn't even look at any instructions -- frankly, I took it out of the box and just started playing with it like a kid on Christmas morning -- instructions are for wimps, anyway!. And for those who are in the android camp -- it also paired equally well with my Android phone and tablet! I even have an LG Env2 "dump phone" that I will use as an MP3 player for mowing and other situations where I don't want to risk the life of my more expensive electronics and the LG never sounded so good!
I started out by playing Eminence Front by The Who -- It starts out with electric keyboard but after the intro, you are hit with BASS. When I first put the song on I though "oh, that sounds good"... then the BASS kicked in and I was thinking "WOW -- Where did THAT come from!"
I have eclectic tastes and also love classical music -- this made the Bach Chaconne for Unaccompanied violin shine. Mahler's 2nd sounds great too -- maybe not as great as my Newform Research Floor speakers but different tools for different jobs!
Finally -- since we are in the midst of hurricane season -- I can not say enough about how useful a portable bluetooth speaker is when you are facing severe weather. Since I live in the land of hurricanes and freezing ice -- there are generally at least several days out of the year when I have to rely on nothing but battery-powered devices and this speaker makes it possible for the whole family to listen to what is going on when you are cut off from power so you can know when it is safe to crawl out from under your rock!
I have never heard such a small speaker pack such a big punch. However, I have tried lots of products from Creative and they have been consistently high quality.
Finally, this little speaker seems very solid and like it is built to ride around in your backpack or computer bag, keep you company around the campfire in the wilds of Northern Wisconsin, or just keep you moving while you are washing the car. You get a little water on it -- no problem because the ports for charging or connecting via a patch cable have a sturdy rubber flap to keep everything sealed.
This is a very versatile speaker that fills a whole room with sound despite its compact footprint. If you like big sound without a big price or big footprint that you can take wherever you want and which is built to last, this is a GREAT option!

Beautiful, very portable, but...Oct 12, 2014
By Luis E.
Well....this speaker is simply OK, Why?
If you are looking some stylish, beautiful, very portable but sound quality is not the first priority for you (I'm not telling sound is bad), this is the one for you!
WOW! once I received I thought "this thing is so beautiful, the blue color is just great!, one thing are the picture, one so different is seeing it", believe me, top quality built.
The first time I turned it on, it said "battery is about 75%" pressing Bluetooth button twice, (the voice is like a robotic woman). I used it for two weeks while taking morning shower and getting ready to work (30-40% volume), so it was about 1 hour per day. I can say battery lasted about 14 hours. Just conclude.
This is why I can't give 5 Stars. I have tested and owned too may Bluetooth speakers in range of 100-200 USD (mini jambox, Sony, Logitech UE Boom and min Boom, JBL Clip 2, Charge 2, Pulse, Creative Sound blaster Roar, and of course Bose Sounlink Mini) but I didn't wanted to spend so much money and I needed to be splashproof.
Then I played music finding that bass....OMG, where are the bass?? Am I asking too much for a small and lightweight speaker?, OK, voices and instruments are really clear, so sound is not bad, it is OK.
Comparison to others:
UE Mini boom: Beatiful, really nice rubber touch felling, incredible loud for the size, but sound is absent of bass and general sound it too much clear, so discarded.
JBL Flip 2: Sound is really clear, loud enough, but again, bass???, and when you take it in your hands it "Cracks", so it is not the best construction.
JBL Charge 2: Is almost the same as flip, bass are better but not enough as Roar, not even close to Bose. You get here some improvement and is the availability to charge your phone. $150...not the best option.
JBL Pulse: I didn't notice any difference between this one and charge 2, just the lights, lights....uhmmm....uhmmm, no words, just I didn't like it.
Bose Soundlink Mini: Small, incredible loud for the size and really good bass, OMG this little thing has the power! So I wanted it, but $200, I don't know...
Creative SoundBlaser Roar: Not so small, a little heavy, $150, but man....the sound is the best, you will really have the best bass and the best sound due independent amplifiers; all other are garbage except Bose (it is some pricey and bass are not as deep as creative, but better than others). Obviously comparison in the range of 100 - 200.
Finally, you get what you pay for, Creative MUVO is not bad, but paying $59 for incredible battery life, water-resistant, good sound but lack of bass; I think is an option to have in mind.
If you don't want to spent $150 for the Roar, or $200 for Bose Soundlink Mini, take a look to Sharkk Boombox: it is like the same size as Bose soundlink Mini (just a little bit bigger), the bass is almost the same too, but sound is clearer and more crisp; battery, OMG, I received one with 4400 mAh (amazon says it just 2500 mAh and 10 hours) but mine lasts 18 hours (the box says that). Actually I'm using it for the first time, I charged it almost full, then I started to play music about 50% volume. Right now after 19 hours and counting battery is about 30%....price $59!!!! definitely the Winner!
Creative, Bose and Sharkk didn't pay me for any advertise, it is just I like good speakers and good prices!

Amazing sound in a small packageOct 05, 2014
By PT Cruiser
The technology behind these small speakers seems to be growing by leaps and bounds. This speaker doesn't fit my definition of "pocket sized" since I'd have to have pretty big pockets to fit this 7.9 x 2 x 3.5 inch speaker (and it would surely make my butt look big!) but it fits easily into my purse, briefcase and backpack and is definitely portable. The sound is quite amazing given it's small size. It has good, strong bass, treble and mid tones. I've been listening to rock, classical and easy listening type music on it and all sound excellent. Classical is the biggest test in my opinion because of the wide range of instruments and notes, especially with the symphonies. My husband has been using it in the exercise room when he's on the treadmill because he can turn the sound way up so it can be heard over the sound of the treadmill and it still sounds great. There is no distortion at all. The Bluetooth pairs easily with all my devices including my iPhone, Kindle HD and iPad. It also pairs simply with my old iTouch 2nd Gen.
This speaker is water resistant so it's good for use around the pool, camping or at the beach. Water resistant doesn't mean you can drop it in the pool, but you don't have to worry if it gets splashed or rained on a little. I love the look of the red case. It's slightly metallic looking and feels sturdy. I like it because it's easy to see amoung all the black and gray devices and the color gives it kind of a festive look.
I feel confident about Creative Lab's products because I've been using their Sound Blaster sound cards for years in my computers and have always been very happy with the ease of installation and use and the quality of the sound. In fact, the first time I ever took apart a computer (my first which I'd only owned for a few days) was to install a Sound Blaster sound card. It only took a few minutes to connect it and I was relieved and surprised that when I put the computer back together it worked perfectly. First time! And I considered myself a computer genius from that day forward. (Thanks to Creatve Labs for giving me that kind of confidence. :) when it comes to sound, they've been at it for a long time so I'm not so surprised by the quality of this speaker.
I was provided with a sample for review.

Creative Mini Muvo Weather Resistant Bluetooth SpeakerSep 25, 2014
By M. Hill
Power is packed into this small speaker. The upper and mid-ranges are crystal clear with a solid booming bass - not overpowering, perfectly in balance. Played full blast there is absolutely no distortion and the volume that comes out of this Bluetooth 4.0 mini Muvo is truly impressive.
I listened to everything from Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, Beethoven, Dickie Betts and Warren Haynes, Gary More, Gary Clark, Jr., Churchill, Lucinda Williams, Beth Hart and even a little Tony Bennett. These are artists performing songs, or musical pieces, I am very familiar with and the reproduction is excellent.
The speaker plays up to ten hours on a single charge (charging cable included) again, pretty remarkable given its modest size (7 1/2 x 1 1/2 X 2 1/4 inches.) Conveniently, there is a built-in battery saving mode that automatically shuts off if there is no Bluetooth or audio input for 15 minutes.
Attractively designed, the speaker paired instantly and operation is intuitive, although the included Quick Start guide is clear and easy to follow (all pictures.) All the controls are on the top of the unit, including a built-in microphone to use for Bluetooth calls, and an NFC landing zone.
There are two lights - one status and one battery. The status light is green when turned on and white when in pairing mode. The battery light is red when charging and turns off when fully charged. A disembodied voice announces when power is turned on and when it is in pairing mode. A chime sounds when maximum volume is reached. There is a 3.5 mm auxiliary jack in the back of the unit to use the speaker with non-Bluetooth music devices.
This is the perfect portable speaker - small with a big sound. It will fill-in nicely on the beach, hiking, a picnic or barbecue, etc. And, unlike many speakers, this one is weather resistant, which means it is somewhat impervious.
A lot of people toss around the word weatherproof when it comes to small speakers but this company has put weight behind the words. The IP rating name is an abbreviation for International Protection Rating or sometimes Ingress Protection Rating.
The number after the initials, in this case 66, indicates the speaker is protected from total dust ingress and also it is protected from high pressure water jets from any direction. Being caught in the rain is not going to harm this speaker.
A small thing but I want to mention the color options. I appreciate having a choice beyond the usual black, white and silver. I have the blue color which is quite muted -- a rich shade between navy and royal blue.
I just tested another Bluetooth speaker at this same price point that was twice the size and had half the sound. It was not weather resistant and looked like something designed in the 1990's. On every level, this mini Muvo is simply terrific. Sample provided for evaluation without obligation.

Really Magnificent Sound...Sep 24, 2014
I was lucky enough to get to try the Creative Muvo Mini Pocket-Sized Weather Resistant Bluetooth Speaker and I have been literally blown away by it's performance and features. This system is compact, easy to tote, but packs amazing sound quality, it's almost unbelievable. I also like that it is life resistant, so accidental spills are no big deal. The speaker has a very polished/modern type look so it's great for the home, office, or on the go.
The sound from the Muvo is both clear and crisp, quite professional and even. Great bass and accurate reproduction of highs and lows. Even at higher volumes the sound did not become distorted, like some other speakers on the market.
The Muvo also features a built-in mic and I tested this speaker as a hands-free speakerphone for my Smartphone and found it to work really well. I could hear my caller clear and they remarked it was easy to hear me and the sound was quite clear on their end. There is also an Aux-in port built-in to the unit on the back for use with the included 3.5mm cable so this speaker can be used with older devices that may not have Bluetooth wireless technology. Both the USB and 3.5mm ports are covered with a rubber stopper to help keep the unit water resistant.
Overall, I think the Creative Muvo Mini Pocket-Sized Weather Resistant Bluetooth Speaker is one of the best Bluetooth speakers I have owned and used to date. Having the option of using Bluetooth or a 3.5mm connection to pair to the speaker is impressive and so is the water resistant design. The battery life (up to 10 hours) is fantastic and nearly double similar types of wireless speaker systems available on the market today. I would thoroughly recommend this product to anyone looking for a great portable sound system, or for a hands-free smartphone speaker for the home or office.
