First Look: Creative D100

1:22 /

The Creative D100 speaker plays music wirelessly from your Bluetooth-compatible music player with impressive low-end range from its dual 3-inch drivers, making it a worthwhile addition to your next outdoor get-together. And although it doesn't have a remote control or speakerphone functionality, the price is right for this portable speaker and it earns our recommendation.

-Hi! I'm Justin Yu, associate editor for cnet.com with the first look at the Creative D100 Bluetooth Speaker. This little guy tops our list with an impressive low-end range thanks to its dual 3-inch drivers making it an obvious choice for your next backyard barbecue or picnic. The cylindrical shape of the D100 is physically larger than some of the other Bluetooth speakers we've tested but it does only weigh 2.2 pounds and it's offered in a variety of colors; blue, green, black, and pink. Bluetooth and volume controls spread across a small strip of plastic on the front of the device, and has an on/off switch, auxiliary-in port, and a power port on the rear. On the bottom of the speaker, has four rubber feet as well as well as a battery cover that slides off to reveal a compartment for the four AA alkaline batteries you need to power the device on the go. We should note there is no rechargeable battery built in to the device, but Creative said the D100 will play up to 25 hours of constant music play. The D100's range of sound performed well across multiple genres of music and highs come out crisp without sounding tinny which is an impressive feat especially for a Bluetooth speaker. The speaker also gets very loud at maximum levels as well, although don't expect the volume to blast high enough to get a large house party started. You can read more details on our full review on cnet.com. But that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. This is the Creative D100 and that sounds good to me.
