SuperTooth Disco

Speakers
Some Bluetooth wireless speakers are small enough to throw in a bag and bring to the beach or a park, but this SuperTooth Disco's size and rechargeable battery makes it better for users that want music in their house but don't want a bunch of clumsy wires snaking around. I'm Justin Yu, associate editor for CNET.com. This is your First Look at the SuperTooth Disco Bluetooth Speaker. It's about 2-1/2 pounds and measures about a foot long and 3 inches wide, so it's not exactly convenient to travel with, but the candy bar shape doesn't really take up a lot of room on your bookshelf or a desk. Hidden behind the speaker grill are two 8-watt speakers and there's rubber fittings on both sides to keep it from moving around. The rubber feet on the bottom also come in handy when you toggle the bass booster which normally causes movement from the heavy vibrations. Now, if you're not familiar with Bluetooth, it's a wireless technology that most modern devices like smartphones and laptops already have built in. Still, you should make sure that your music player has the ability to broadcast a Bluetooth signal before you go out and buy the disco. Now, on the other hand, the back of the speaker also has a stereo input jack in case you wanna play music from any device with a headphone, but you'll need a cord that SuperTooth provides in the box. So, we used an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 to test out the pairing process and it's actually really easy. Just hold down the power button for a while to put the speaker in pairing mode, then go to your settings on the music player and press connect and that's it. A small blue flashing light next to the knob lets you know that you've made the connection. Unfortunately, though, the downside to using Bluetooth is that you're gonna hear a decrease in audio quality, since Bluetooth's audio streams actually compress your music file to transmit sound wirelessly. It's a noticeable difference but the bass booster actually does help to fill the gaps with the fuller sound. I wouldn't say it's exactly TV quality but it comes close. Now, at $150, the SuperTooth Disco is about the same price as a high-end set of 3-piece wired speakers, but it's definitely a tradeoff between sound quality and wireless technology. Now, if you're not a die-hard audiophile, you won't really be able to tell the difference in sound, and the convenience that comes with cutting the cord is a big selling point if you already have a lot of wires in your home. You can read more details in the full review on CNET.com but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu, this is the SuperTooth Disco Bluetooth speaker and that sounds good to me.
