Looking for a way to shake things up with your music? Creative, known for the Sound Blaster sound cards, has announced its latest product. The Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 combines the power of a robust Sound Blaster with the portability of a wireless Bluetooth speaker.
It sounds nuts, right? But they might be on to something here. The Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 packs an array of features, so you’re getting more than just a speaker. It can work as a megaphone, external battery bank, sound card, and a teleconferencing system. Android and iOS apps are available to control the settings of the speaker.
One of the benefits of the Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 is how it can enhance audio in real-time, much like a Sound Blaster sound card would for a PC.
The speaker uses Creative’s proprietary technology to automatically boost clarity or equalize the volume of audio tracks. This is helpful for when you’re watching movies or listening through a favorite playlist.
The Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 features a quad microphone array, which works well for teleconferencing. But the microphones are more likely to be used for more common activities such as recording audio or facilitating hands-free phone conversations.
Smartphones aren’t even a requirement in order to play music. The Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 has an integrated MicroSD card slot. Fill a card with tunes and plug it right in. The speaker also provides folder navigation so it’s easier to find the songs you want.
But don’t forget that the Sound BlasterAxx AXX 200 is still a sound card too. When plugged into a laptop or PC via USB, it unleashes its full potential as a sound blaster card. Perfect for movies and games. It also has dedicated auxiliary input and headphone output ports.
There are a lot of powerful features in the AXX 200, but the crazy part is the price. Creative is selling it for $149, even though they know they can get away with charging more than double! Visit the Creative website for full specs and check it out.
