Creative Sound Blaster Wireless Rock [Insert Hilarious Post Title Playing Up Rocks And 'Rocking Out' Here]

By Andrew Liszewski

I usually only expect to find rock-disguised speakers in the pages of a Hammacher Schlemmer or Sharper Image catalog, built and designed in some name-less overseas factory. But this little monolith comes from Creative under their Sound Blaster brand. You can use it as a standard speaker if you feel like running cables to your backyard (not that you have to use it out there) or it will communicate with Creative’s Sound Blaster wireless music system, making things a whole lot more convenient.

Now since it doesn’t use wi-fi you’ll need one of Creative’s $99.99 USB wireless transmitters in order to send music to the speakers, but thankfully they’re currently throwing one in for free if you pony up the $199.99 for the Wireless Rock. Other notable features include a weatherproof design allowing you to leave it outside 24/7 and a removable rechargeable battery good for 6 hours so you don’t even need to run a power cable.

    Most of Disneyland's outdoor speakers have been disguised as rocks, or bushes, or something since–well, I guess since they first opened. It is nice to see that a company has decided to market to the public. I wonder if these were left over surplus from the Matterhorn or Splash Mountain.

    Just when I thought the brand name Sound Blaster couldn't sink any lower those Creative marketeers come up with this.

    But In retrospect it was the cheapness and crappyness that made Creative the company that it is today. Oh how I wish them all that's coming to them for ruining companies and technologies from E-MU Systems, Ensoniq, Aureal 3-Dimensional and others. And let's not forget their releases of those hideously crappy, latency ridden drivers…
