Monster Introduces DNA Portable Speakers

Wireless speakers feature Qi wireless charging and Party Mode, which allows synchronization with other Monster DNA speakers.

Monster has announced the DNA One (MSRP: $149.99) and DNA Max (MSRP: $179.99) wireless (Qi) charging speakers. The Monster DNA line includes the industry’s first portable speakers that can be wirelessly charged via an included high-speed Qi charging base. When on the go, both speakers have an unplugged playtime of 14 hours per charge and can be recharged via any Qi charger or a USB-C charging cable in under four hours. The DNA One weighs just 1.5 pounds, while the DNA Max weighs just under 2.5 pounds and pumps out 30 watts of sound.

Monster DNA One Wireless Portable Speaker

To maximize the performance of its DNA portable speakers, Monster developed Omnidirectional Sound technology, which utilizes four evenly distributed speakers (two drivers, two passive radiators) and allows users to freely place DNA speakers anywhere in a room and sound like they’re pointed at the listener. Both the One and Max are available in white or black. Both speakers include a Qi wireless charging base that can also charge compatible smartphones, a 6-foot premium USB-C charging cable, and a wall adapter.

DNA One and DNA Max feature Monster’s Party Mode, allowing seamless connections and synchronization with other DNA speakers with the push of a button — no app required. With Party Mode, users can fill a home with sound or they can connect with their friends’ DNA speakers. Both the DNA One and DNA Max are iP67 waterproof rated, meaning they can endure being immersed three feet deep in water for 30 minutes.

Monster DNA Max Portable Wireless Speaker

To help users immediately benefit from Party Mode, Monster is offering a 25 percent coupon for another DNA speaker in the box.
