Creative iRoar Wireless Intelligent Speaker Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2018-07-07

After fully charging the iRoar as soon as it arrived, we have connected the speaker via USB to our computer, in order to try out the Dashboard but also to check for the latest firmware updates. The software has updated the speaker firmware in about a minute and we were ready to rock! After listening plenty of clips on YouTube, some TV shows and the Death Wish movie with Bruce Willis, we were quite surprised how loud the speaker can get. After enabling Roar mode, everything got boosted, including the bass effects, which is a treat during action scenes. The speaker can deliver when playing games as well, thanks to the multitude of drivers (active (subwoofer driver and the two frontal tweeter drivers) and passive (two radiators on the side)).

iRoar Dashboard


Intelligence Meets Customization

Its features and functions are fully accessible via the Dashboard app, so you feel like you're interacting directly with your audio.


Customization is the name of the game - from the equalizer to the level of immersion and clarity of your audio. Take joy in creating your own sound signature wherever you go.


The Dashboard app saves your most recent configuration. When you pair with another iRoar speaker, your personalized configuration will be automatically loaded into that iRoar!


You can make on-the-fly adjustments seamlessly!


Custom Audio Profiles for Your Entertainment Needs

The Dashboard app offers multiple sound characteristic profiles that are designed to heighten your audio experience - be it for movies, music playback or your virtual gameplay. Simply select the profile of interest and the iRoar will automatically adjust its settings to deliver the selected characteristic profile accordingly.


It is Really Smart

Ever wanted to hear every detail of your audio, even at the lowest volume? With Smart Volume, you can achieve that with just a press of the button.


The iRoar comes with two modes. When Auto Mode is activated, your audio playback is constantly monitored so you can enjoy your songs at a consistent volume you've configured previously. It also compensates for low quality audio sources with its frequency analysis adjustments.


Are you a night owl? Love watching movies at midnight? The Night Mode lets you hear all the details, even when you have reduced the volume. Enjoy the best, while the iRoar takes care of the rest.




Your Personal Speakerphone with Mic Beam Technology

Be heard loud and clear with the iRoar's beamforming microphones.


The Mic Beam technology features two modes that let the speaker pick up sound all around the speaker and within a certain parameter.


The 360° mode captures sound all around the speaker, no matter where you are. Alternatively, the Private mode reduces what you do not want to hear. It focuses on picking up sound within a predefined acoustic zone so sounds within this zone will be isolated from your surroundings.

Apart from performing music playback from your phone's media library, the app also allows you to access audio content stored in the microSD card in your iRoar.


The best part is that you can view the current track playing from your microSD card - on your smartphone!

Your Personal Recorder

You can remotely trigger iRoar to record via the app and save your audio sessions into the microSD card.




Clean, Powerful Bass

The active 2.75″ driver pumps out impressive bass. Directing the audio upwards not only stabilizes the speaker, but also provides for a wider soundstage that doesn't require the listener to be situated in the audio sweet spot.


Even More Bass Enhancement

It is further enhanced with dual opposing, side-firing passive radiators that widen the soundstage dramatically.
