Since JBL's line of Creature speakers have graced our site several times showing up in Good Questions and Tech Tours, we were excited to see the newest edition to this line, the Creature III. The Creature series has always been fun to look at with it's non-conventional design, a departure from the traditional square speakers seen on many a desktop, and the Creature III is no exception.
The Creature III while sporting a similar design to the Creature II does have a slightly more futuristic look due to a few changes. We like the airy feel that comes from the open loops at the base of the sub and speakers. Although we were hoping for digital input, this system, like the Creature II, is also analog, using a 3.5mm stereo mini input.
All in all we think the new design is nice, but if you are happy with your Creature II speaker system the design tweaks in the Creature III are not enough to justify an upgrade. However, if you are currently in the market for a new desktop speaker system we do recommend giving the Creature III a look.
What do you think of the new look of the Creature III speaker system?
The Creature III speaker system will be available in black and white soon and will retail for $129.99. For more information, visit JBL.
