Monster SuperStar Backfloat Bluetooth speaker review: Making a splash?

 

There are so many Bluetooth speakers on the market that picking the best one can be a tough decision. Price, sound quality, portability - they all matter. Monster's approach with the SuperStar Backfloat is to add a two distinct selling points into the...

Floats in water, sounds good considering the size, easy to use

Button configuration is confusing, not properly waterproof, average battery life

The Monster Superstar Backfloat Bluetooth speaker delivers ample audio in a water-resistant floating package, meaning your swimming pool or bathtub can become a haven of tunes.

Monster SuperStar BackFloat review

 

A semi-amphibious Bluetooth speaker that doesn't offer up much else

Floats in water ; Sophisticated design ; Loud sound

Costly ; Average battery life ; Narrow listening angle ; Distorted highs and lows

Monster's SuperStar BackFloat offers a unique and water-friendly twist on your average Bluetooth speaker, but the results sink it. The inconsistent sound performance across genres, average battery life and high price prove that you should look elsewhere.

Monster SuperStar BackFloat review: A rugged waterproof speaker for tunes in the pool

 

Monster's floating waterproof Bluetooth speaker is fun to use in the pool, but it needs a substantial price cut before we recommend you go out and drop $150 on one.

The Monster SuperStar BackFloat is a portable Bluetooth speaker with a tough outer shell that protects it from water, dirt and dust. As the name implies, it can also float on its back with the speaker pointed up to add music to a pool party. It also...

It's more expensive than competing waterproof speakers, it can't handle deep bass well, and the sound distorts at higher volumes.

The Monster SuperStar BackFloat's sound quality won't blow you away, but its travel-friendly design and unique ability to float on water makes it a fun accessory for your next pool party.

Monster SuperStar BackFloat

 

The Monster SuperStar BackFloat is a rugged, quality Bluetooth speaker designed to float in the pool.

Quality audio performance for a speaker this size, with rich lows and crisp highs. Floats in water and is splash- and shock-resistant. Easily portable design.

A bit overpriced. Some distortion at top volumes on deep bass tracks.

It's hard to complain too much about a water-resistant speaker that also delivers quality audio performance for its size, but the BackFloat does seem slightly overpriced. It delivers audio more or less comparable with speakers that cost significantly...

Monster SuperStar BackFloat Review: the best waterproof bluetooth speaker yet

 

The Monster SuperStar BackFloat speaker is a simple concept - it pumps out the jams while it floats in water. Water to which it is resistant. You can toss it in the pool and not worry about it exploding, shutting down, or otherwise being wrecked. While...

Monster SuperStar BackFloat review: Splish, splash, play your tunes in the bath

 

This waterproof speaker can not only withstand poolside splashes, it can float in the pool with you.

Highly water resistent ; Shoots water up from its speakers and radiator ; Fun

Expensive

No one passionate about music will use the SuperStar BackFloat as a reference speaker, or even as their primary indoor audio system. But it's great for its niche—if you can get over its price tag, that is.

Monster Superstar Backfloat Review: This Monster Loves The Water

 

Love 'em or hate 'em, Monster continues to build its sound empire this time with a floating Bluetooth speaker, here's my Monster Superstar Backfloat review.

Well-designed, great sound and waterproof IP6.

Price point could maybe come down a little.

The Monster Superstar Backfloat rings in at $149.95 and that’s honestly pretty close to other name brand speakers on the market of the same features. Overall I think you can’t go wrong with this Monster product, it does exactly what it advertises it...
