Consensus

our Verdict

Product analyst praised the Monster Rockin’ Roller 270X, recommending it for podcasts and indoor and outdoor parties. Experts at RTINGS lauded its mic, mic/guitar, and USB charging ports. Reviewers at Best Reviews applauded its EQ presets and sliders. It doesn’t support voice assistants, though. Check out our Oontz Angle 3 ULTRA review for a device that supports smartphone voice assistants. Testing revealed an impressive 64.7-hour battery life. Reaching a 95.7 dB SPL during testing, this device is loud and boasts a low 2.24 dB DRC, maintaining good audio quality at its highest volume setting. The device proved to have a narrow soundstage, featuring a 4.48 dB directivity index. It has a decent 53.4Hz to 15.3kHz frequency response range and a fair 3.95 dB standard error, producing pretty neutral, well-balanced music. However, it has a high 253 ms iOS Bluetooth latency and 248 ms Android latency and lacks speakerphone functions. See our Marshall Willen review if you need speakerphone features. The 270X also downmixes stereo to audio.

Producing a more powerful low bass, the SOUNDBOKS Gen. 3 is better for EDM and hip-hop music than the Monster Rockin’ Roller 270X. Featuring a 110.0 dB peak SPL, it also gets much louder than the 95.7 dB peak SPL of the Monster Rockin’ Roller 270X. However, the 270X has a better 64.7-hour battery life than the 43.8-hour runtime of the SOUNDBOKS Gen. 3. Check out the SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) review today.

The Monster Rockin’ Roller 270X has a much better 64.7-hour battery life than the Monster S310, which has a 24-hour battery life. The 270X has guitar and mic inputs, which are missing on the S310. However, the 1-lb S310 is much more portable than the 26.9-lb 270X speaker.
