  • [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.

      I do like how all your reviews are pool side PF.
      Ha, thanks man. Only the originals call me PF - nicely played. Poolside is the best light... so that's where the reviews are done.

      Would love a BT speaker. Airplay is ok, but you're not always home and near your airport express to use it.

      hate to tell you this guys, but this isn't a new product by any means. It's a rebranded product. It's also been sold as a Blueant M1. The sound is okay, somewhat balanced considering the small size, but lacks a decent kick on the bass side if you are looking for the lower end.

      BlueAnt M1 2.1-CH wireless speaker - 28 Watt

      This looks like a decent little unit, but I wonder if they'll make a smaller "kid brother" that's a little more portable-friendly

      Very cool. Just picked up a bluetooth speaker and it's garbage. This looks to be very promising.
