Monster DNA Max Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Monster has pivoted in recent years away from cables and directed more of its focus to accessories and portable audio components. The Bluetooth loudspeaker category has become a royal rumble with a few dozen brands battling it out in the ring for this very lucrative segment of the market. The new Monster DNA One and DNA Max have been announced and are available for purchase.
