Review – Braven Ready Pro and Braven Ready Solo Bluetooth speakers

By

Audio peripheral maker Braven has released two new tough, rugged, and, importantly, powerful, portable Bluetooth speakers, ready to accompany you on your outdoor adventures.

Braven focuses exclusively on audio products and strives to make them distinctive. In this case, the Ready Pro and Ready Solo outdoor Bluetooth speakers are crafted with an aircraft-grade aluminium grille, are tough and ruggedised, and designed for punishing use, resisting shocks, water and dust.

The speakers look and feel tough and solid, and pack a surprisingly loud — and clear — audio output. If you’re looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker you won’t go wrong with either of these. After using the speakers for a couple of weeks, I can definitely say they do their job really well. I could hear the speakers across my backyard, I could dunk them in water, use them in the rain, drop them and they kept playing without missing a beat.

They really pumped out the volume, up to 80dB for the Ready Solo and up to 85dB for the Ready Pro, without distortion, and here’s a sample recording:

Both units offer impressive battery life, 12 hours for the Ready Solo and 16 hours for the Ready Pro, offering 2200mAh and 2600mAh batteries, respectively. The devices feature a USB port so you can draw on its battery to charge your phone. They include an action mount, which can be used with most existing GoPro-compatible mounts, as well as allowing the speakers to be secured to bicycles and outdoor vehicles.

Both devices are IP68 certified waterproof, and dust and dirt resistant. Take them with you to the beach or on your other adventures.

Of course, you don’t have to use them only outside. Both units serve admirably as indoor Bluetooth speakers – and conferencing equipment, in fact, with both speakers including noise-cancelling speakerphones so you can make calls or use voice control in conjunction with your voice assistant, whether Siri, Google’s Assistant or something else.

The Ready Pro further expands on the Ready Solo’s capabilities with an all-direction subwoofer, shockproof thermoplastic housing, and an LED light torch.

It’s easy enough to pair the speakers with your phone or tablet, and to then play audio directly, but an optional Braven App will allow you to tune the sound with custom EQ settings, remotely power it on and off and lock the buttons to stop people adjusting the volume.

The Braven Ready Solo is available for $149.95 and the Braven Ready Pro for $229.95. Both speakers come in black and grey from Syntricate or The Iconic. The Solo is 160x80x70 mm and the Pro is 190x95x90mm.
