Braven has announced the immediate availability of an adventure-proof high definition wireless speaker system that could be deserving of a place in the rugged section of our recent round-up of Bluetooth speakers
. First announced at CES back in January, the BRV-X outdoor speaker is the bigger brother of the BRV-1
that impressed us back in January 2013, has a built-in battery that can be used to charge other portable devices, and is described by the company as "the tank of mobile speakers."
The new Braven BRV-1 speaker is designed to be to speakers what armored military vehicles are to trucks. An acronym for "Battle Ready Vehicle," the BRV-1 is equipped for all kinds of adventures.
BRAVEN is looking to stand-out from the Bluetooth speaker
crowd with a new line that offers the versatility of integrated phone charging plus speakerphone and daisy chaining functionality. The BRAVEN SIX Series comes in three flavors - two aluminum models and a ruggedized unit - which boast between 12 and 20 hours charging time.
