Creative, a company that makes speakers for PCs, has just unveiled its new Creative Pebble Pro computer speakers, which are a more powerful version of its popular orb-shaped Pebble stereo desktop system.
The Pebble Pro came out just a few months after the cheaper but still impressive Pebble Plus. It has all-new full-range drivers, the latest generation of Bluetooth 5.3, and a digital amplifier stage with built-in sound processing instead of an analog one.
Creative says that the new setup gives the Pebble V4 up to 3.5 times more bass and louder, clearer sound at all volume levels than the Pebble V3.
Along with the better sound, the Pebble Pro has a new RGB lighting feature at the bottom of each speaker that lets you choose from a wide range of colors and three different lighting effects (Cycle, Pulsate, or Solo). The company wants these to be on the list of the best computer speakers for gamers who love RGB colors and can’t get enough of them.
As with the Pebble Plus, the Pebble Pro’s speakers are slightly tilted to direct the sound toward a seated listener’s ears. Since the Pebble Pro’s speakers are smaller than most of the best stereo speakers, this design is meant to make them sound bigger and higher. You can use our playlist with 21 best song to test these speakers and you wont regret it.
Unlike the Pebble Plus, there is no option for a separate subwoofer. However, Creative thinks you won’t need one thanks to the Pro’s housing design and their BassFlex tuning technology, which can deliver extended low-frequency response and clear bass even when the volume is low.
The built-in audio processing includes Creative’s own Clear Dialog feature, which, when turned on, picks up spoken words and makes them louder than other sounds.
There are many ways to connect: Bluetooth 5.3, a 3.5mm aux-in port, headphone, and microphone ports, a USB-C port for power and audio streaming, and a dedicated volume dial on the right orb that controls the RGB lighting.
Your computer’s USB-C port can power the speakers, but to get the most out of the Pebble Pro, you’ll need to hook them up to a 30-watt adaptor, which gives them a powerful 30W RMS and 60W peak output. The adaptor is not included in the box, but you can buy it as an extra.
The Creative Pebble Pro costs $59.99 or £65.99, which is about AU$93. It is on sale now.
The new Pro version speakers look like a steal in every way.
Early this year, we were blown away by the “criminally cheap” Creative Pebble Plus 2.1 stereo speakers, which made us look forward to these new, more expensive speakers in the same series.
The price for these latest tiny desktop speakers is a little higher, but the new drivers and audio processing should more than makeup for it, and that’s not even considering the RGB lighting feature.
We’re not sure about the old, ’00s-looking Creative logo on the front of the otherwise well-designed sound balls, and we’re curious to hear how much low-end thump they can provide without a sub, but we have high hopes for the Pebble Pros and can’t wait to put them to the test.
