Monster and Shaquille O’Neal have teamed up to release the self-proclaimed, world’s smallest Bluetooth audiophile speaker, called the SuperStar for $150. Although with Shaq as a collaborator, I would have expected the product to be the biggest speaker on the planet. Nevertheless, the company says this pocket-size speaker defies its size and can fill a room or an outdoor living space with high quality audio wirelessly. The built-in mic also offers speakerphone functionality for taking conference calls via a smartphone. With its IPX4 rating, the Monster SuperStar is also splash-resistant, featuring a tough, super durable silicone cover.
The ultra-compact SuperStar is smaller than most smartphones and fits easily in your pocket, backpack, purse or laptop bag. Its breakthrough innovation is the combination of ultra-compact design and high performance audio, engineered with Pure Monster Sound and advanced apt-X digital processing for clean, outstanding wireless stereo sound. Standing only two inches off any flat surface, the SuperStar is smaller than most smartphones, yet delivers the clarity, dynamics, articulation, tight bass and sound pressure levels of a full-size speaker. Unique to the Monster SuperStar is the ability to provide room-filling sound even when lying flat.
Designed by Head Monster Noel Lee, Pure Monster Sound uses Monster’s latest proprietary technologies to offer the full experience of live music. Monster SuperStar delivers more than sheer volume. It offers the clarity, dynamics, articulation, tight bass and sound pressure levels you’d only expect from a full-size high-end loudspeaker. Highs that soar, sweet or sharp as the music requires, midband to make vocals sound real, with clarity, detail, transparency, attack, articulation and naturalness that you associate with high-end speakers
