It is ultra-portable and versatile with 4-way music playback, including a microSD card slot2 that supports high-quality lossless music3.

Audio

Connectivity

Recharge with Music

Can't pick which song to listen to? Let your local radio station decide! The USB charging cable doubles up as an FM antenna, allowing the Metallix to tune in to your favourite FM radio station. You can even continue listening while it is charging. That's how versatile this small speaker is.

Charging

REVIEWS

Music | Photo | Life

The sound quality almost blew me away. This single 37mm speaker driver with hidden passive radiator pumps respectable bass output with sufficient presence at high volumes, that I can even feel the surface vibrate. But it’s the crystal clear treble that wins the deal.

Technically Well

The Creative Metallix has surprisingly well-balanced sound given its small size. Music sounds clear and there is even some bass. It won’t rattle the windows, but it does enhance the lows nicely. It can even get loud enough to fill a medium size room with minimal distortion.

Sound Guys

You’re getting a tiny speaker with plenty of connection options and features that make it one of the more versatile products we’ve tested in a while, but because of its size you’re going to have to give up some sound quality. Though to be fair not as much as you might think.
