Braven is known for their rugged speaker, the BRV-1. Which we reviewed early last year and really liked it. Now, Braven is back with another rugged speaker, that's TrueWireless. It has an exclusive frequency tuning ability to maximize sound quality and volume in indoor and outdoor environments. The TrueWireless technology enables easy wireless pairing with a second BRV-X speaker for amazing left and right stereo sound using two BRV-X speakers.
The BRV-X is designed for sports and outdoor enthusiasts, the BRV-X takes the next step in outdoor HD wireless speaker design by combining the latest in audio technology with the ruggedness needed to withstand drops, bumps, rain and much more. The BRV-X is great for the beach, BBQ's, and just about any type of outdoor activity. The BRV-X comes equipped with custom HD drivers, omnidirectional passive bass radiator and an indoor/outdoor switch that adjusts audio output to fit its surroundings to maximize surround quality and volume.
Now as far as battery life goes, Braven has always delivered amazing battery life with their speakers. I just finished reviewing the Braven 710 - which is actually in our current giveaway - and I was amazed by the battery life on that speaker. The Braven BRV-X touts 12 hours of continuous HD sound, as well as being IPX5 water-resistant rated, and can charge USB devices while being used. It has a 5200mAh battery inside so you can charge your phone while you're listening to music. It also comes with a nice heavy duty strap to easily seucre the speaker on bikes, all-terrain vehicles, tents and much more.
It's a very rugged speaker, and it definitely looks like it. It's available now for about $230. Which is about what we expected for a speaker like this. If you're looking for a nice rugged speaker, the BRV-X and BRV-1 are both great choices, as they are drop proof and water resistant. Just don't go swimming with them.
