  • [GIVEAWAY] SuperTooth Disco Bluetooth Wireless Speaker


    So I've been meaning to let you guys know about SuperTooth's Disco product for a while now. It's a Bluetooth wireless speaker which rocks the house pretty well. I took it up to Bonnaroo last month as our RV's impromptu speaker system, and we had a blast with it.

    Company

    Based in Nébias, France, SuperTooth has been around since the 80s. In 2004, they were the first ones to create the concept of a Bluetooth speakerphone to clip to your car's visor. They've since sold millions of units, and specialize in Bluetooth gear.

    In the Box

    The Disco unit itself comes in the box, as well as the AC power adapter. There's also a "holster" - a little bag for the device, as well as a 3.5mm audio cable and a manual.

    Design



    A tough plastic casing on the back, and a slightly triangular shape make this portable boom box sit well on pretty much any surface you set it on. The front of the Disco has the brand name emblazoned on the left, and features the single control panel towards the right.

    An easy volume dial spins with just the right amount of resistance while adjusting volume. There's also your basic Bluetooth-able controls - Play/Pause, and skip forward and back. A power button and a "Bass" button to enhance the low end finish out the control panel. There's also a typical blue LED letting you know the status of the device.

    We found pairing to be uneventful and simple, and actually loved the ease of being able to have anyone in the RV pair up and send tunes to the device. The Disco grabbed Bluetooth signals well, and we had no issues heading from the front to the back of the RV without losing signal.



    The battery on the device last 3-4 hours on high volume, with up to 10 hours on medium volume. We kept it plugged in mostly, with the supplied AC adapter. There's also an audio line in in case you'd prefer to plug directly in. Sound quality improved slightly when tested, but the difference was nominal.

    It's a bit heavier than a typical "throw in your purse or bag" stereo, and at over a foot long (315mm) it's more of a backpack stereo than a purse one.

    Sound



    Sound was great on the SuperTooth Disco. I'd say it delivers perfectly for the $149 price point it's retailed at. Solid reproduction of sound, good volume, but not the crystal clarity you'd see in a high-end audio device. That said, with the road noise and concert-goers at Bonnaroo, we were able to get great volume, full bass (nothing rumbling, but definitely a solid low-end presence), and clean treble.

    Price / Conclusion

    You can grab the Disco for $149 directly from SuperTooth (backordered, with a $5.95 shipping fee), or $123.13 at Amazon.com (ships free for Prime members).

    We're giving the Disco a 3.5 leaves rating. It's a great mid-level audio device - I'd like a slightly smaller footprint for the amount of sound.

      This seems like a perfect solution to the feedback problems that I'm getting with 10+ year-old speakers! Looks like a perfect fit for a college student!

      This seems to be the best speaker out there. The BEAUTIFUL and attractive design that drags everyone to it. It is not too small and not too big but it's something in between that makes it just the right size to call it PORTABLE. And not to mention the wire-free feature it brings you - BLUETOOTH. Are you kidding me? Why haven't I seen this speaker before?!! Oh god, I want it for my birthday!! OH GOD I WANT IT!
