Legendary craftsmanship meets the science of sound in Katana, which stands apart from other wireless speakers on the market today for its uncanny ability to play louder and lower than anything in its class.

In addition, thanks to its innovative 3-way, tri-amped speaker design, Katana delivers effortless dynamics for every genre of music. All drivers, electronics and the speaker cabinets have been engineered by Monster from the ground up, with each element carefully selected and tuned for true-to-life music reproduction.
