Best MacBook Bluetooth Speaker Of The Year : Creative Roar 2

Best Bluetooth Speaker For MacBook
Shopping for the best portable MacBook speaker at a great price? This year's best wireless speaker for a MacBook Pro or Air is the 2nd generation Roar loudspeaker from Creative Labs. The revised SoundBlaster Roar 2 Speaker packs a punch with great bass response and superlative audio quality in a compact enclosure that's 20% smaller and a half a pound lighter than the award-winning original model. It's available in either a white with black accent - or black with white accent color options to suit an Apple user's taste and style.

With the same high-quality 5.1 speaker driver assembly packed into a smaller enclosure, it rivals the pricier and bulkier Bose SoundLink III portable speaker at nearly half the price - while offering far more features.
