Braven BRV-1

 

The rugged, Bluetooth-equipped Braven BRV-1 delivers quality audio, but occasionally runs into trouble at top volumes.

Super-rugged, water-resistant design. Quality audio performance at moderate-to-high levels on genres without deep bass. Built-in speakerphone. Can charge mobile devices

Deep bass can cause vibration issues at top volumes. Slightly expensive for its size and performance

There are a lot of Bluetooth speaker choices if you have a $150 budget. Some speakers in that range are stationary systems are fairly large and can deliver a solid amount of power. Some are smaller, portable systems built for the great outdoors that...

Braven BRV-1 Wireless HD Speaker Review

 

The BRV-1 is a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker that will please outdoorsy types, offering long battery life and the ability to charge your smartphone.

Sturdy, water-resistant casing; Very good battery life; Can charge mobile phones

Top volume isn't loud enough for many tracks; Loud tracks distort at top volume

The BRV-1 is a water-resistant Bluetooth speaker that will please outdoorsy types, offering long battery life and the ability to charge your smartphone.

Braven BRV-1 Review

 

A new blow has been struck in one of the most competitive markets in the tech industry. We're not talking about smartphones, electric cars, or even designer headphones. Actually, it's the portable Bluetooth speaker market that seems to have anyone and...

Clear midrange and treble ; Full low end ; Good balance ; Water resistant/feature packed

Expensive for an entry level portable ; Mediocre speaker phone

When it comes down to it, even though it’s pricey, we dig the BRV-1’s great sound and tough design and can’t help but to throw it a recommendation.

Braven BRV-1 Speaker

 

If your in the market for a bluetooth speaker for your outdoor activities that's weather resistant that is capable of charging accessories than the Braven BRV-1 should be your top choice.

Great Sound Quality, Fast Charge Time, External Charging, Durable and Rugged Design, Non-slip Base, Battery Level Indicator

Can't charge all smartphones (depends upon the device and its battery size).

Braven BRV-1 Bluetooth Speaker review

Water- and dust-resistant ; Great workmanship and quality ; Very portable ; Nice phone call features

Max volume is too low ; USB charging port is not very useful ; Very pricey

Braven: BRV-1 Review

 

The BRV-1 is great for the music fan on the go. The speaker is durable, gives a great quality of sound and can help recharge a device in a pinch. It's a perfect Bluetooth speaker to take while traveling, and proves that great things come in small...

Braven BRV-1 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

 

Roughly one year ago, Braven released the $180 Braven 625s -- a ruggedized but otherwise similar alternative to its $190 top-of-line model 650. The 625s was a handsome little speaker, mixing shock-proofed rubber edges with aluminum front and back...

Braven BRV-1 Portable Speaker review

 

Take into account the increasing number of people traveling and embracing a more active lifestyle, it's no wonder that the portable speaker market has seen a steep increase during the last couple of years. Braven, one of the more aggressive brand in...

It’s a portable speaker, battery charger and does double duty as a speaker phone when connected to a smartphone. What more can one ask for? While there are two points that I wish Braven didn’t skimp out on (the lack of aptx and the 1,400 mAh battery),...
