This type of thing is heng sway one, imagine u so sway to get a speaker that spoil within a year, then meet up with sway cso, then sway sway get stupid respond from yusoff. U should know by now creative and your 8 character not match.

Don't spend the money on repair, go buy sony portable. Srs X5
sway chances are high. so, avoid creative products.

Unable to on, i tried to charged it with both methods, manage to get a weak "on" sound out of it, but the light that went on is the beside bluetooth/phone button.

I think somewhere along the battery connections easily fried but now manage to produce sound.

Maybe they should make the battery removable... like those of laptops.

Mine also gone.
Can't turn it on.
Creative wants to charge 40 bucks to tell me set is broken.

I am heart broken

Recently i saw the roar being sold in popular... Usually creative product is only sold online or at their specific outlet.. Now really change strategy to become mainstream.. Can see how bad they have become.

So, the only problems we get in less than a year is we can't "on" it?

I can get mine to on but no longer portable liaoz.

What about the Marshall speakers sold in Challenger?


Anyway TS should go to Creative Labs fb page and warn new buyers on the review page.
I saw a number of people complaining about how their gadgets conk out around the 1 yr mark.



I also own a Blaster Roar and feels a little sick in my stomach now.

If I ever were to buy a "portable" speakers, I'll get the Riva Turbo X.

I see that they have a new model, a smaller Turbo S, I might consider that too.
