Creative Chrono Portable Splash-proof Bluetooth Speaker and FM Radio Clock Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2018-02-28

Chrono is a very affordable portable speaker from Creative which provides good audio quality and can be pretty loud, judging by its small footprint. We did really enjoy its vintage LED alarm clock appearance, the multitude of inputs it does support (Bluetooth, analog, microSDHC), but also comes with a FM module. The frontal display comes with large LED segments and its brightness can be adjusted on multiple levels. At medium sound level, from our tests, the speaker has lasted about seven hours, after which it did need a full recharge.

Product Features:


Perfect Morning Companion


Music is good for the soul in the morning! With its built-in analog FM tuner, you can enjoy your favourite radio station or DJ right after waking up to this bedside alarm — all at your fingertips.


Clear Display with Adjustable Brightness


The Creative Chrono's clock face is large and easy to read. Users can choose between 3 different brightness settings to suit individual preferences, so the clock is not too bright in the night, or too dark in the day.


Splash-proof and Portable


The Chrono's built-in battery lets you go portable! It's also IPX5-certified; that means it's completely splash-proof. Play your favorite songs by the pool or listen to podcasts in the shower!


Surprisingly Deep Bass


Featuring a passive woofer for enhanced bass and a single in-house tuned, full-range speaker driver, the Creative Chrono delivers surprisingly powerful sound with bass you can feel.


Wireless Stereo Pairing


Get double the audio power! Pair two Creative Chrono units together wirelessly for more audio power and better stereo separation.


Dual Orientation Layout


The Creative Chrono can be laid flat for room-filling audio, or it can sit on its clock face for more focused directional audio.


Bluetooth Connectivity


The Creative Chrono isn't simply a FM radio clock; it also serves as a fully-functional Bluetooth speaker so you can enjoy songs from your smartphone or tablet wirelessly.


microSD and AUX-In


Besides FM radio connectivity and Bluetooth, the Creative Chrono also has a 3.5mm AUX-in port, and a microSD slot that supports high-quality lossless playback.


Customizable via Downloadable App


Configure the Creative Chrono with the free downloadable Sound Blaster Connect app (for iPhones and Androids). The app allows you to easily access the presets and switch between different sources of audio.
