We have long been a fan of music and quality speakers. We find it essential to have superior sound quality in order to enjoy the music. The Supertooth DISCO bluetooth stereo speaker offers great sound quality while adding bluetooth and other great features. We have been using this speaker for about a month now and are ready to finally unleash the review. Hit the jump to hear what we think.
The device itself is a rectangular box that is 89 mm high, 315 mm wide, and has a depth of 70 mm. We think that the size is perfect for a portable bluetooth speaker. The Supertooth DISCO is also light enough to bring around with you.
It has a sweet simplistic look to it. The speaker unit is mainly black with sleek silver borders in certain areas. The front greatures a control area with five buttons: Play/Pause, Next, Previous, On/Off, and Bass. In the middle of the circular shaped buttons is a volume control that turns around to allow you to adjust the volume as needed. Finally, there is a small LED that shows you when a bluetooth device is connected and let’s you know the unit is on. The bottom left of the speaker has a sleek Supertooth logo.
It features Bluetooth version 2.0 that will allow you to connect any Bluetooth device that supports A2DP to it to stream music. This includes such things as mobile phone or your computer. The Bluetooth has a short range of about 10 meters before it will begin to cut out. If your device is not Bluetooth compatible, you can still play music using the included audio cable.
Let’s get into the technical stuff for all your audiophiles. The Supertooth DISCO features a internal subwoofer amplifier power that is 12 watts RMS and uses a Neodyne high efficiency system. It has 28 watts RMS of audio power.
Now that you have the specs you probably want to know how it performs. It sounds pretty good for a small speaker. Obviously you are not going to get the same sound as a full stereo unit with a separate subwoofer, but this does the job until you turn the bass to loud. In that case, you will notice that it begins getting distorted. Luckily, there is a button to shut the bass off and get rid of the distorting sound.
One of the important features of this unit is that it can be operated without a power source thanks to the built-in rechargeable battery. The company lists the battery life to be 3 to 4 hours on high volume and 10 hours in medium volume. Our experiences coincided with what the website says and we found ourselves rarely having it plugged in. However, when you finally need to recharge it, it will take about 3 hours to finish.
Since this is a portable speaker, it comes with a convenient carrying case that allows it to charge through the back. it also has a area that will allow the bass to come out clear when it is in the case. You will, however, need to open up the Velcro front to have a decent sounding speaker.
The Supertooth DISCO can be purchased from their website for $149.99.
