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!

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.

The "Bass Radiator" gives the Mini that Logitech sound sans the hefty price tag ...Dec 29, 2014
By D. Fowler
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3S7WU4PWLDGY4 The Creative Muvo Mini has an innovative feature called the "Bass Radiator." Whether you are listening to a Hip Hop instrumental or a mix by Hardwell, you can almost feel the bass coming out into the room. Taylor Swifts voice pops because the clarity is there in all registers. If you want to listen to your tunes or take a call by the pool, feel free. With an IP66 rating you have enough water-resistance to weather that splash.
One real plus for a lot of people is the fact that the Creative Muvo Mini is NFC-enabled. A single swipe and you can be listening to Psy once again. Whop, whop ... yes the bass moves when I listen to Gangman Style. In other words, no matter what your preferred genre is, the Mini comes through loud and clear.
The plastic cubist-style grill is blends in nicely with the body of the Mini. Pairing was seamless and a small white LED light indicated I was up and running. The controls are intuitive with a power button that's separate from the Bluetooth one. NFC pairing occurs on the top and is clearly marked.
If you're using it on a desktop there are a couple of slim, rubberized ovals to give it a no-slip grip. Aside from the grill, the housing is a silicone. The look, the sound, and the high IP rating all combine to make the Mini a real standout in the Bluetooth speaker market. If you're looking for Logitech quality sans the price, the Mini just might be what you're looking for.

One of the best bluetooth speakers in its class!Nov 10, 2014
I have had the Creative Muvo Mini Bluetooth speaker for a little while and I have absolutely loved it so far. I will highlight my experience with the product in this review.
In the box, you will find the actual speaker, a micro-USB charging cable, and a user manual.
The design of the speaker is really nice. It comes in a very compact size, but don't let that fool you into thinking that small = bad sound. I have tested out many bluetooth speakers but I think this one has come forward as my most used speaker. Not only is it extremely portable, but this also sounds amazing! The bass is excellent and the mids and highs are all very crisp. This little guy also gets pretty loud and you can use it when you have a get together with friends.
The speaker itself has a matte rubber finish to it which feels nice to the touch. On the top you have 4 buttons and a couple LED indicator lights. You have a power button, a blueooth button, and 2 volume buttons (increase and decrease). Pairing with this speaker was extremely simple. After you take it out of the box, turn it on and simple press the bluetooth button. Once it goes into searching mode (indicated by the flashing light) you search for it on your bluetooth audio device. On that you will find "Creative MUVO mini". Once you connect, you are good to go! The awesome thing is that once you connect, you never have to connect again. You also have the option to connect via NFC as well.
The really nice thing about this speaker is the playback time on one charge. I usually just charge it overnight and it goes for at least 8 hours.
I am a fan of all kinds of music (rap, R&B, rock, alternative etc) and this speaker does not disappoint in the sound quality across the entire spectrum of music. Also, I "accidentally" tested the weather resistant aspect by leaving it outside during a rain storm. I thought that this speaker was toast, but much to my surprise, it worked like nothing ever happened to it. So, it clearly can handle water going all over.
Overall, this is an excellent bluetooth speaker and I give it a 5 star rating! If you are in the market for a small and affordable bluetooth speaker I would highly recommend this one. You will not be disappointed!
I was provided a sample for my honest evaluation.

If it's anything like the other Creative products I own it should last years if looked after...Mar 28, 2015
I've been a huge fan of Creative products for a lot of years. I have several Creative Zen Mp3's which have lasted me many, many years and are still going strong. They're looking a bit tatty now but still work no problem at all and have taken quite a bit of punishment over the years. I've tried other brands but even the best can't compare to my Zen's so I was really looking forward to trying out this speaker and I wasn't disappointed.
Brilliant. That's the first word that springs to mind. I don't think I've ever had a better bluetooth speaker.
This pocket sized (if you have big pockets) is a brilliant bit of kit. Very pretty to look at and very nice build quality, it seems very robust and if it's anything like the other Creatvie products I own it should last years if looked after. I hope it does because the sound from it is amazing. Crystal clear with no distortion even at quite high volumes and powerful enough that you don't have to be sitting on top of it to hear it.
Straight out of the box it paired with my phone and ipad in seconds and if you're in any doubt as to what it's doing there's a little American voice that keeps you up to speed. That's a nice touch as it takes all the guesswork out of it. She'll even tell you how much charge you have left if you press the right button.
If you don't have a bluetooth device you can still use this with your wired devices and the sound and ease of use is every bit as good. My old Zen MP3's worked no problem with this.
Easily charged via a usb cable and it doesn't take long at all. I mostly listen to audio books, rather than music, and listening for around a couple of hours a day the charge is lasting more than a week. I haven't timed it but it's I've only had to charge it once over the last fortnight.
Brilliant. Very competitively priced and I'd highly recommend.
