CES announcements have been coming thick and fast so far today and from a number of the familiar names. In fact, this year we have seen quite a surge in the number of announcements that have came through for Bluetooth and audio equipment related news. A sign of how much the connected and wireless speaker and audio market seems to be growing. As to be expected, BRAVEN, one of the more popular and well-known Bluetooth speaker brands is also in attendance at the event this year and they have also been making a number of announcements of their own today. One of which came through earlier and detailing their latest addition to the BRV range in the form of the BRV-XXL.
Following on from the BRV-XXL and the next Bluetooth speaker to be announced by BRAVEN and joining the BRV family is the BRV-BLADE LE. Following in the footsteps of the other BRV models, the BRV-BLADE LE is designed to be an ultra-rugged device and one which is able to endure the perils of being used outside and in the most adventurous of environments. To make sure it is durable enough, the BRV-BLADE LE comes equipped with a casing which is made of aircraft-grade aluminium. This is combined with a shockproof ABS build and along with reinforced tie-down bars for easy fixing to various surfaces. That said, the general build is only part of the BRV-BLADE LE's 'ready for the outside' design, as this is also a speaker which comes equipped with an IPX7 rating for waterproof. Ensuring that it can be played whenever and wherever the music is needed.
Making sure the BRV-BLADE LE is able to stay powered long enough is a 4,000 mAh battery, which also doubles as a power bank for when you need to quickly add some juice to your smartphone or other mobile device. While the speaker also continues the trend of offering the ability to make and take hands-free calls. For those interested in the BRV-BLADE LE, BRAVEN has confirmed that the speaker will be available to purchase sometime in the second quarter of 2016. In terms of price, the BRV-BLADE LE will be available to pick up for $199.99.
