Creative reveals Sound Blaster Axx, its new family of wireless speakers

After all the excitement generated by Creative for a new family of Sound Blaster products, and as the company had announced, yesterday May 30 revealed that it was, and this has not been a new generation of sound cards, but a new generation of wireless speakers.

The Creative Sound Blaster Axx incorporate their own audio processor, the SB-Axx1 Processor, an advanced audio effects processor that improves the experience on a phone call when you watch a movie or listening to music, with a  dramatically superior audio quality than what exists in the market. These new speakers in two of their models also incorporates an amplifier and can charge and power of a micro-USB connector that also serve to connect to a PC.

Following the characteristics of these hexagonal design speakers, the Bluetooth connection is the key to connect directly to mobile devices with IOS/Android as a smartphone and tablet to play music and video (a music concert for example).

Its touch controls simplify the design to make it more refined and elegant, incorporates a microphone that will work as an hands-free when we receive a call on our IOS or Android smartphone, and it will also recognize voice commands from applications such as Siri and S-Voice for example. In the following video you can see some of the functions.

Another features on these peculiar speakers is directional audio and ambient noise attenuation, ideal for when you use it as handsfree in your home or office, as can be seen in the video below.

The Sound BlasterAxx also include a USB connection to your computer and will be available in 3 different models: Sound BlasterAxx SBX 20, Sound BlasterAxx SBX 10 and Sound BlasterAxx SBX 8.
