The FRee (no, that’s not a typo), is the latest addition to Creative’s Sound Blaster range of audio products.

Creative has fitted the FRee with two custom-tuned neodymium drivers, along with twin passive radiators for low frequencies. The FRee claims to deliver 360-degree sound, and has dual-orientation playback, meaning it can be placed either horizontally or vertically. 

The compact cylindrical shape means it can be carried around easily, and a splash-proof casing allows it to be used near water. 

Connection is primarily via Bluetooth, but there’s also a USB input for PCs and Macs, and a 3.5mm auxiliary input for analogue sources. Alternatively, users can insert a microSD card up to 32GB and the speaker will play any audio files stored on it. The FRee also features a built-in speakerphone for hands-free calls over Bluetooth. 

Finally, there's a built-in rechargeable battery, which Creative claims lasts up to 10 hours. 

The Creative Sound Blaster FRee Bluetooth speaker will be available in July for £80.

I hope the sound is good, and

I hope the sound is good, and also they try to increase the microSD limit. 32 Gb to 64 Gb.

and I hope we can choose the song at the microSD from Apps, and then disconnect it but Sound Blaster FRee still play the playlist.
