If you love music, this is for you – Creative SoundBlasterAxx AXX 200

AXX200

I really love music as it helps me in every way. It has the ability to psych me up and also calm me down. For me, I listen to music for about 2 hours daily and I can’t imagine life without music.

I would like to thank Creative for giving me a pair of their best speakers as they know my love for music. I’ve received my Creative SoundBlasterAxx AXX 200 a few days ago so I thought that I should share my thoughts about this product and I really love these speakers a lot.

The Creative SoundBlasterAxx Axx200 just came out in Singapore not long ago, so I’m fortunate to be able to have a pair so early.

Firstly, I’ll talk about the features of these speakers.

First Look:

This is how the speakers look outside the box. I already fell in love with these speakers just from the packaging as black and red are my favourite colors, and it looks really professional to me.

First Impression:

Here’s what I got when I unboxed the speakers. My first impressions of it were that they were very durable as they are made of rugged metal grille and it’s really solid hard, which means that it should be able to withstand a reasonable amount of damage. The bottom is rubber based, which gives the speakers a stable support and reduce vibrations. Overall, these felt like an expensive pair of speakers.

This is how it looks like when I hold it on my hand, as you can see it is really portable and handy, so you don’t have to worry about it being bulky. If you’re wondering, the blue light is for wireless Bluetooth connection. That’s actually the most important factor for me as I really hate tangled wires thus this product really suits me.

The 3 lights at the bottom show the battery life of the speakers, which has up to 15 hours of battery life.

Top View:

As you can see, there are many functions of these speakers. Let me start from voice focus and I’ll move clockwise.

Voice Focus: creates an acoustic zone and suppresses noise
outside it to enable the speaker within to be heard with amazing clarity

Noise Reduction: Reduces background interference during a call

SBX Pro studio: For intelligent audio processing

Speaker mute: In case of any emergencies you can mute the speakers

Mic mute: Mutes the microphone

Call button: Picks up phone calls (and also activates the voice command function or Siri)

I’m pointing at the master volume control, where I can easily adjust the volume of my music by sliding it up/down.

Back View:

The top button is the on/off switch, followed by the play pause, skip/rewind tracks, record audio, shuffle music, and a mega microphone.

The black circle is the bass enhancer, followed by a micro SD card, portable USB charger, AUX cable and the speaker’s charger.

This is the most interesting feature to me. A pair of speakers that allows you to imitate voices, how cool is that? Haha when I tried this feature my parents were laughing a lot as it really sounded like I was another person. It’s like you can be a girl, an alien, an elf, from a male to a female, it’s pretty cool for parties if you ask me. But for me personally I doubt I’ll use this feature but it’s good to know that it’s there.

Micro SD Card – The purpose of this is that though smart phones may be convenient for music, it drains a lot of the smart phone’s battery life, thus the Micro SD Card is there for you so that you can use the speakers as an MP3 player itself should you not want to waste your battery life.

USB charger – This was definitely a huge plus point for me as I wouldn’t need to invest in a power bank anymore, all I need to do is to just plug my cable in and I’ll be able to charge my phone. Plus it can play music at the same time, so why choose a power bank over these speakers?

Sound

SBX Pro Studio: When this function is on, I can literally feel my music coming alive; the sound just naturally turns a lot lighter. Though I’m not an audiophile, but it feels as though I’m listening to music directly from a studio, it’s really amazing as I’ve never heard such good music coming from a pair of speakers before. I’m a person who likes powerful bass in music, so by turning SBX on it actually enhances the bass and also increases the clarity of the music. But when SBX is off, these speakers just sound like any average pair of speakers.

I’ve listen to many different Genres of music with this speakers and the clarity it has for all Genres is just amazing, no sound felt overpowering and it all sounded really balanced.

Of course, if you want you can always change the equalizer of these speakers through the speaker app they have installed for iPhone and Android.

As for volume wise, this speakers maximum volume is INSANELY LOUD. When volume is at maximum my ear drums are kinda vibrating. But thats the whole point of it being called a sound blaster I guess. Good news is that the sound isn’t being compromised even at full volume. Thus feel free to blast this speakers at a party!

Apart from music, this speakers gave me a wonderful experience when calling as it feels like the person I’m talking to on the phone is just right beside me. Kinda scared me at first but I can get used to it haha.

Docking Base:
The speaker comes with a free docking base which charges my speakers easily. Simply just by placing my charger on the docking base and it charges automatically. I guess this is a huge plus point as it really makes charging a lot more convenient.

Cons: 

This pair of speakers are not user friendly to be honest. It took me a day to really figure out how to fully utilize all of this speaker’s functions. Well, but it can’t be helped as this speakers really has a lot of functions so it really takes time to figure it out. Besides it being not user friendly, it’s really a solid pair of speakers. Once you figured out how to use the speakers it won’t be a problem.

Verdict: 

Overall, I can say that this is the best pair of speakers I’ve ever had and if you’re looking for a really versatile pair of speakers, look no further, this speakers is the best choice you can ever have.

But like I said, I’m not an audiophile, but I appreciate music and this pair of speakers gave me the best music experience I’ve ever had so far.

  1. I used to be into Creative speakers so I’d really like to support them. How loud is this speaker? Which one is louder, THIS or the Big Jambox?

    1. Hey Jaydee! Speakers are loud and clear, the sound quality wasn’t compromised at maximum volume. Brought it outdoors a few days ago and it was loud enough for everyone to hear. I’ve never tried the Jambox so I’m not sure! But I really love this speakers a lot. Hope I helped 🙂

      1. Thanx for ur prompt reply Sheng Jun. Guess I have to go test it out in the Stores.. I already have the Big Jambox. Use it on my Touring motorcycle to blast the music while I cruise.. If this is louder I’d be glad to make a purchase cause this looks a wee bit smaller and that would help save some space on mounted on the motorcycle.. Thanx again..

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to take a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Wonderful blog and amazing style and design.

  4. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!

  5. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its field. Awesome blog!

    1. Hi there,

      Thank you for your constructive feedback! so your suggestion is to add a vlog section in my blog? Sure I will work on that 🙂
      Thank you for the words of encouragement too. It motivates me to blog more 🙂
