SuperTooth Disco Twin Review
Introduction:

Introduced at last year’s CES, the SuperTooth Disco 2 differed greatly from its predecessor, as it employed a very stylish modern design that made it stood out over most other typical speaker designs. At the time, it was mentioned that the Disco 2 would offer some sort of stereo support, but unfortunately, that feature didn’t quite make it to the final product. Well, it’s finally here in another variant called the SuperTooth Disco Twin, which consists of two 16-watt Bluetooth speakers for true stereo left/right support. Some might think of it to be a novelty, but we’ll see whether or not it’s something that’s noteworthy enough to distance itself from SuperTooth’s last offering.

Design:

Frankly, there’s nothing different with the design of the SuperTooth Disco 2 from the previous effort, sad to say. We would’ve liked to see just a subtle change, but that’s not the case here. Nevertheless, we’ll still give it to the folks over at SuperTooth for having one of the modern looking designs out there to bless a speaker – especially when its outline is similar to that of a vase. For the most part, the speakers are comprised out of sturdy plastic, but upon holding them, we’re a little bit shocked to find that they’re somewhat weighty. It’s not a bad thing, since it merely adds to the solid build quality. Certainly, the aesthetics of the speaker help to draw out some of its finer characteristics, such as its harmonious lines, but as we’ve noted clearly already, there’s absolutely nothing new with it.

Along the top surface of the Disco 2, we’re once again greeted to its six physical buttons – these include the power, volume up, volume down, track forward, track reverse, and pause/play. Aside from the power button, which is recessed, all of the other buttons are lined up and flush to the surface. Despite the indistinct feel, they have an adequate amount of spring when pushed – plus, backlighting on them is aplenty.

On the façade, hidden behind the fabric grill, there are two speakers putting out a total of 16 watts – while in the rear, the bass reflux system helps to accompany its output with its subtle amount of bass. Considering we have two speakers with this setup, the SuperTooth Disco Twin essentially pumps out 32 watts of total RMS audio power. Finally, along the bottom edge of the rear, its power jack, LED light, and audio-in port are all situated in plain sight.

Nice review.

I wasn't aware of this product before seeing this, and I'm glad I got to read it. I'm in the market for a BT speaker (was looking at the Jambox)

You guys should review the JBL Charge. I think that is a device that most people would be happy purchasing and is one of the best values in the bluetooth speaker market (Pending you cannot find a Big Jambox for a REALLY good price).

I bought the Supertooth Disco Twin from someone on ebay a month ago. This product is not yet available in the US.
I owned the previous model Supertooth Disco 2 and I loved it.
The SDT is just as awesome but truly has stereo seperation.

Listening to Tunein radio and listening to Johnny Mack's Friday Night Blues Night (WDVX in Eastern Tennessee) has now become a tradition thanks to Supertooth Disco 2 and Twin's incredible sound.
Even my know it all friend who complains about everything said these speakers rock.

Now, any bluetooth signal can suffer from some bit of distortion.
Old Heavy Metal songs can sound a bit funny. I mean really heavy, heavy metal (Slayer, Metallica) At times the guitar sounds distorted but otherwise it really kicks butt.
These speakers are made for newer hip hop music that truly maximize the sounds on this speaker.
The bass is not overpowering, your not going to shake your foundations but it is really sweet in my opinion.
I am a huge fan of the Supertooth Disco products.
I still use the Supertooth Disco 2 more than the Twin but I love both.
I have had many other bluetooth devices (original Jawbone Jambox, ecoxgear xbt, Pyle waterproof marine grade speaker) and this is by far the best.
I tested out the JBL Flip and the Beats Pill at Best Buy.
The JBL Flip sounds great and really blew away the Beats Pill.
I still think Supertooth Disco 2 or Twin is much better.
You will not be dissappointed with the 2 or the Twin.
As of this writing this, the Supertooth Disco 2 is $83 at Amazon and its a steal.
