Home Reviews Entertainmnent Gadgets Braven the wild – BRV-1 review

Braven like name, braven by nature, the new BRV-1 water resistant speaker may be what this rugged land needs.

It’s a: Bluetooth; compact; 6 watt; 12 hour 1400 mAh battery life; smart device 1amp recharger; IPX5 ruggedized; speaker – and speakerphone that is getting rave reviews from real users – surfers, rock climbers, mountain bikers, skiers, and more.

I had not heard of Braven before – any wonder as it was only founded in 2011 based on producing the best portable HD speaker with speakerphone that doubles as a mobile device charger. They have a range of compact speakers producing up to 20 watts with 8800 mAh batteries.

The majority of reviews praise it for excellent dynamic range and a chic, rugged design. The BVR-1 has been commended for personal listening – not filling the great outdoors.
