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.

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!

Small, loud and water resistant speaker! Great for rooms and pool parties!Jan 18, 2015
By Daniel Guzmán
Awesome speakers! They are lightweight, easy to carry on a backpack or in hand, and they are LOUD. Really loud. Obviously, the bigger the speakers the louder they are, but in this case, these speakers can be heard in all over a house, the treble and highs are played clearly and the low freqs are also loud. I might not say the bass is strong, it is well balanced and the punch that you may expect will not blow the windows but they are noticeable.
I tried playing different genres of music and this is my conclusion (so you can imagine):
Amazing for: Rock, Metal, Country, Classic, Pop.
Could be improved for: Jazz, Dubstep, House.
The NFC pairing took me a while to set up, I prefered to do it by bluetooth. The water resistant feature works great! Creative suggest not to immerse directly into the water, but beyond that, any water spill make no damage.

The "Bass Radiator" gives the Mini that Logitech sound sans the hefty price tag ...Dec 29, 2014
[[VIDEOID:aeb4105c6994defe8f66b019a8c0ed53]]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.
