On The Bleeding Edge: Bleeding Edge TV 538: Seagate Game Drive for Xbox review


In this episode, I bring you a look at one of the coolest Bluetooth speakers I've ever seen - the Monster Superstar Backfloat.

Monster's Superstar Backfloat is rugged--you can spill water on it without any worries. Even cooler, it's been constructed in a such a way that it will float in water. Throw it in the bathtub or pool and you've got your music right with you. Even better? It's also a speakerphone, so you can take your calls without getting out of the water.

We give you a look at the Monster Superstar Backfloat in this episode, and I give you a demo of how it works even when wet. Be prepared for the #WaterDance.

You can pick up the Monster Superstar Backfloat now.
