      Great sound for size and price

      Upon returning from a vacation, I realized that I would get a lot of use out of a Blue Tooth speaker to pair with my Android phone and tablet. I looked at all of the main options. The final considerations were the Bose Sound link, JBL Charge and Flip 2, Jambox, and a couple different Ultimate Ears models. I thought I had narrowed it all down to the two JBL models but saw an ad for the Monster Superstar just minutes before making the final decision. I have two sets of Monster headphones (DNA on ear and N-Ergy ear buds) which I have grown to prefer over my Bose IE2 and Bose AE2 and decided to check their speaker out. It was difficult to find a store that carried it. The main Best Buy stores did not stock it but a couple of the small mobile stores in the malls had it. I bought it today and I'm very impressed with the Monster brand again. The speaker feels well made. It's solid and the rubber housing around it feels like it would limit damage. I wouldn't test it intentionally but I won't worry about putting it in a backpack to head to a beach or pool. It seems to give about 5 hours per charge as claimed and it pairs very easily to my devices. I listened to it using an auxiliary cable and didn't hear a difference between the cord and the Blue Tooth. It also charges using mini USB which is great because I can charge it with my travel USB charging pack and it uses the same cord type as my other devices making it better for travel. The padded pouch/case it comes with is also a nice feature. I got to test the microphone/conference call feature while writing this and it worked better than expected. I could hear the caller very clearly and they had no trouble hearing me which is pretty much all I wanted. The range seemed decent. When I answered the call, the speaker was across the room and I retrieved it to set it on an end table closer to me for the call but there were no points where either of us had to ask what the other said. From here on out, this is of course my review of how it sounds to my ears. Some people don't hear things as others so it really is opinion. For me, the sound is excellent. While it is not going to compare to a multi speakered regular hi-fi system, it is definitely in the top tier sound wise for Blue Tooth speakers and it blows the others in its price range away. The mids and highs are very clear and defined. Vocals sound great. The bass isn't pounding but I don't know how anyone could get really thumping bass out of a speaker that size. I would say the bass is stronger than several other speakers I considered that were significantly larger. I listen mainly to classic rock and it exceeded my expectations. It is loud enough to get you thrown out of a hotel. When placed on the fireplace mantle in my living room around eye level, it fills the room with undistorted sound at all levels. It also works great watching videos. Dialogue is very clear and the speaker makes it much more enjoyable than just getting sound through the device. I only wish it had an actual battery meter to show how much charge it has left. It has a red LED that blinks when the power is running low and also indicates when it is charging but I would prefer a little more. Even just four lights that count down would be better. So far, that's the only thing I wish was different. Overall, I'm very pleased with the product. The Bose Sound Link might sound a little better but I didn't think the difference was significant nor worth the extra price and I'm not a Bose hater. However, that was just my opinion. The size, sound, and price made this the best choice for what I was looking for which was something with the best sound that didn't break the bank and would be convenient for travel. Definitely check this one out if you're looking for something similar.

      Volume Issue

      I purchased this speaker just over a year ago and it was great for a while. I used it about once a week and really enjoyed the sound for it's small size & it has terrific battery life. When it comes on now, it comes on at full volume and the volume down button no longer works. I was surprised by this as it seems to be well made. I guess it just appears that way. I sent email to Monster support and all they did is remind me of the limited 1 year warranty as I am 2 months over it. Nothing about how I might be able to get it repaired or anything else helpful. If you want to drop a hundred bucks on something that may not last & from a company that throws the limited warranty at you just a few months after it ends, then this speaker is for you.

      Walking through Best Buy, I tried out a bunch of compact bluetooth speakers and really liked this one. Considering the size of this speaker, the sound quality is impressive and loud. I think you need to have realistic expectations about bass on any speaker this compact. So anyways, I rigged up a holder between the handlebars of my bicycle so I could have a portable music system. I love riding around listening to my favorite tunes. Once I lock up my bike, I just pocket the speaker. It's slightly larger than an iPhone 5, but about an inch thick, so it might be a little tight if you wear skinny jeans! Overall, very happy with this little gem.

      I bought this monster blue tooth speaker on a leap of faith. I didn't research all the options available when it comes to blue tooth speakers. I just liked the design and trusted the Monster brand name. I was pleasantly surprised. The sound quality is very good and the portability is great. The battery life is very good as well. The only negative I have found is some songs with deep base can be distorted. However, I have to remind myself this is a portable speaker. Overall, a great purchase that I have enjoyed thus far!

      Lots of sound for such a small thing

      Bought the Monster Superstar for my kids to link the ipods and cellphones to. This little guy throws a lot of sound. It is plenty for in the bedroom or even in the family room. We haven't tried it outside yet because it's still snowing but we do have plans to take it to the beach with us. It came with a little mesh carry bag and the charging cord which is the same as the Samusung and Blackberry charging cords. This means we don't need to carry extra cords for short trips. Overall this is a great little bluetooth speaker!

      Blown away by the sound from this small speaker

      I came across this in a Best Buy Mobile store. I was blown away at the sound that came out of this small speaker that is stylish, durable and LOUD. So funny it is tied to Shaq. Every detail from the fun case to the cool middle section that vibrates with the bass is well thought out. Great value for the price. Can't wait to take it to the beach.

      Bought this for my wife for christmas. She really loves it and uses it all the time in the kitchen and living room. Sounds great! Hoping it will work out this summer by the pool as that is what I bought it for. The only complaint she's had is it doesn't stay charged real long but she is not good with electronics so may not have had charger plugged in right at some point?

      Better than Bose Soundlink and The Mini

      Sounds much better than the soundlink ($129) and the mini ($199). Excellent voice clarity and base from this little speaker. Bose Mini has the base but no voice clarity. Bose Soundlink has the base and the voice but does not have the fullness. This mosnter speaker has both with excellent voice clarity!! I am much impressed and amazed at the performance. Very portable also. I am looking at large speakers from monster brand. Very highly recommended!

      While that certainly catches your attention, I haven't run across too many tiny Bluetooth speakers that would impress audiophiles. And I'm not sure the SuperStar will either. That doesn't mean it's a bad little speaker. It's just not a superstar.Full Review
