Question Should I buy a Creative bluetooth speaker?

Hey guys! I would like your advice on buying a Creative speaker.

Creative website shows that it is selling its Sound Blaster Roar 2 for 129$ and it seems to be a good deal.

However, does Creative products spoil easily? I have purchased the Sound Blaster Roar 1 and the desktop T50 speakers, and both of them spoiled around 2 years. So, is it me, or does Creative products spoil fairly easily?

Well I can't voucher for all creative speaker but mine I bought for quite some time (4~6 years ago) and it's still working fine without any issues at all. So maybe it it depends?

It's specific to Roar and its battery.

If you fear Creative product quality than get Sony, JBL and etc.
More reputable brand tend to last longer than Creative.
Nothing against Creative but I myself have many of their
products come and go.

Alright, thanks for your opinion! In terms of audio quality, I really love Creative, but the only thing I fear is their lifespan.

I'm sorry, but when you mean specific to its battery, are you implying that the speaker spoils due to its battery? Also, is it common that bluetooth speakers spoil due to its battery? Thanks!

Bluetooth speakers spoil due to their battery. And Roar's battery spoils really fast compared to other bluetooth speakers.

The iRoar Go have a better battery circuit design, I personally recommend that.
My Roar 2 just kaput yesterday but it still can work if you give power.
