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.

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!
Creative MUVO Mini Bluetooth Wireless SpeakerSep 21, 2014
By Sarena Bui
This speaker has very clear sound, and the bass is incredible. It plays music like surround sound, and no matter the quality of the song you are playing, the speaker seems to enhance the quality. My roommates and I love how easy it is to connect via bluetooth, and how it's so compact that you can take it anywhere.
The only (small) problem that I ran into with the product is that it doesn't seem to connect to more than three different bluetooth devices, but if you just "forget this device" through your bluetooth and reconnect, it works perfectly fine!
We just recently took the speakers to the beach, and even with the waves and people chatting in the background, we could still hear the music loud and clear. We've used this product in our apartment every day for the last two weeks and we still haven't had to charge it. The 10 hour battery life is definitely a plus! It's the perfect gift for a college student, and I would highly recommend it.
I found this speaker the perfect size to bring to an outing or just anywhere ...Sep 22, 2014
By Karis Low
I found this speaker the perfect size to bring to an outing or just anywhere around the house whenever I want to listen to clean and crisp music. I was pleasantly surprised with how sleek this looked in comparison to other portable bluetooth speakers like the Jawbone. So far, splashes of water have not been a problem. The 4 buttons (power, bluetooth, minus and plus) are discreetly placed on top and comfortable to push. My one gripe is that the buttons are almost too discreet. At an arm's distance you may not clearly see what button you're pushing. There's been at least three instances where I wanted to turn the volume up but accidentally turned it off because I pressed the power button.
All in all, a great portable speaker that packs a punch. I look forward to bringing this with me to pool parties and cabin trips. Highly recommend!
