The Creative Metallix is a wireless Bluetooth speaker with powerful audio and a long-lasting battery life of up to 24 hours1. It is ultra-portable and versatile with 4-way music playback, including a microSD card slot2 that supports high-quality lossless music3. The Metallix is compact, but certainly punches above its weight.
Don't underestimate its size — the Creative Metallix is furnished with an in-house tuned full-range driver with a hidden passive radiator for impressive audio and enhanced bass. This compact speaker will bring you surprisingly clear and powerful audio akin to that of a speaker larger in size.
With a remarkably long-lasting battery life of up to 24 hours, Creative Metallix gives you playtime of more than double that of most speakers of similar size! You can play more than 200 songs on a single charge. Listen to your favourite playlists to your heart's content!
Let Metallix help you send a message or make a call! Activate Siri or Google Now by double pressing the play button when you are connected to the Metallix via Bluetooth.
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.
This compact, palm-sized speaker weighs just 205g (7.2 oz) and is ultra-portable. It is the perfect travel companion that even fits in your pocket!
The bigger of the two, Creative Metallix Plus is a portable Bluetooth and IPX5 water-resistant speaker furnished with dual custom-tuned drivers for powerful acoustics — and is available exclusively on Creative.com.

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.
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.
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.
The value to quality ratio is extraordinary. Would happily pay triple the price for these no joke.
Creative Metallix (black): Great little speakers 10/10 or 5 stars. So portable, practical, flexible & sound great for their size. I have bought 3 of these direct from Creative now - very pleased indeed!
Bluetooth connection was seamless and intuitive. The FM radio can be a hit or miss depending on where one is at and definitely requires the power cord to be connected. I am no audiophile but i will say that i was very pleasantly surprised by how well the Metallix could fill a room with its sound and even at higher volumes, there was no distortion. Mids are clear. Bass is not muddy and can be rather powerful. Highs are decent enough, given its size. In my humble opinion, for an improved sound stage, 2 or more of these should definitely be used. If possible, place them in a horizontal position, suspended. Those who are looking for a really small, portable mobile speaker, this is definitely for you.
