This week, CES 2016, one of the largest electronics and consumer technology trade shows is taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada. During the event we are likely to see all sorts of tech products from different companies, and before the event actually begins we have several products already being announced. BRAVEN, a company known for its wireless Bluetooth audio products, has just announced the BRV-XXL, their latest speaker aimed at bringing HD sound to both indoors and outdoors locations.
Aimed at party-goers, the speaker has several features that allow it to be used in many different situations that typically speaking might not be the safest for a regular Bluetooth speaker. The BRAVEN BRV-XXL has a tank-like, heavy duty futuristic design with a black body made of aircraft-grade aluminum and ABS. According to the company, it offers protection against accidental falls, sand, dirt and dust, alongside with an IPX 5 waterproof rating to protect against rain. There are also a carry strap and tie-down loops for carrying to around and securing on non-flat locations. According to the CEO of the company, there's even a built-in bottle opener on the carry strap.
The specs are pretty impressive, with a 15,600 mAh battery that offers up to 14 hours of continuous playtime. The device features one-touch connectivity and NFC, and onboard buttons allow for controlling bass, treble, volume and skipping tracks. There's also a 3.5 mm microphone input, which is useful if you want to make an announcement or add voice to a party. The control buttons are located in one of the sides, and there's also a set of small LEDs that indicate the battery level. The huge battery also allows it to serve as a charging station for smartphones or tablets.
The BRAVEN BRV-XXL will be available sometime in Q1 2016 although BRAVEN has not provided exact launch details. That said, the company has confirmed the price and for those interested, the BRV-XXL will be available to purchase for $349.99 from BRAVEN's website. If you happen to be in attendance at CES 2016 this year, then this product along with BRAVEN's other offerings will be on show to check out.
