Apart from Bluetooth the speaker also offers a standard 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB connectivity for lossless high-fidelity digital audio streaming through a PC as well as a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB of storage and can read MP3 files.

There are a bunch of buttons on the speakers to control your music when you are connected to Bluetooth or playing music off a microSD card. You can play, pause, skip tracks and even shuffle and repeat tracks. It also has controls to use it as a hands-free speaker for when you get phone calls.

The speaker is also IPX4 rated which means it can withstand water splashes. So one can even use it in light rain, around the pool or even in the shower.

The top has controls for volume, picking up calls, activate the pairing mode and also the power. There are three LED lights to indicate the battery capacity.

In terms of sound quality, it is quite brilliant. It offers great bass thanks to the inbuilt dual passive radiators and the sound feels as good as a set of 2.1 stereo speakers.  There is also a Loud setting which further boosts the volume, although it tends to distort music most of the times. It also offers a 360-degree surround sound if you keep the speaker in a vertical position. The speaker is suitable for listening music or even watching movies. Creative claims that it can also be used a small studio monitor for audio enthusiasts
