Creative Muvo 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Review
Peter Donnell / 5 years ago
There have been a lot of advances in the world of mobile technology over the years, and while speaker quality has improved greatly, there’s the simple hurdle that tiny speakers can only do so much. When it comes to enjoying your favourite media, blasting it through the mobile devices speakers just doesn’t always cut it. The best solution to that is an external audio solution such as a dock, speaker, or even headphones. Creative has a lot of experience in the world of audio, so it makes sense that they would be a capable brand when it comes to making a mobile speaker, and we’re hoping to find out if that’s true with their latest product, the Muvo 2.
“The Creative MUVO 2 is designed with a water-resistant IP66-rating to take your music through your adventures. Powered with a 10-hour battery life and a size small enough that fits in your bag, you can take your music anywhere. Connecting to the MUVO 2 is effortless. Simply connect via a host of input sources including Bluetooth connectivity. Plus, you can connect two MUVO 2 speakers to enjoy a wider sound stage and bigger audio performance. Available in four colors with cool metallic shades, pick the right one that suits your style.” – Creative
We’ve already tested the Creative SoundBlaster Roar Pro, one of their flagship mobile audio products and we were blown away by the performance, but it wasn’t cheap. The Muvo 2 is a little more reserved, clocking in at £70-80, which is still half the price of the Roar Pro, so we’re eager to see how much value you get for your money here today.
