  • BRAVEN BRV-X OUTDOOR WATER RESISTANT BLUETOOTH PORTABLE SPEAKER REVIEW
    By TweakTown on 3/12/2015

    "Sturdy and water resistant: You'll have no issue dropping it a few times or taking it through the sea spray on your boat."



  • GADGET REVIEW: BRAVEN BRV-X RUGGED WATERPROOF BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
    By CI BLOG on 3/4/2015

    "If you are looking for a Bluetooth speaker to take out and about with you, look no further than the BRV-X."

    "Moreover, when you consider its sound quality, battery life and ruggedness, this may just be the first and last portable speaker you will ever need."



  • ROCK THE OUTDOORS
    By Sound & Vision on 11/24/2015

    "The BRV-X is a tad bigger than a brick and built like a tank with a rubberized enclosure that’s shockproof and water-resistant. It even has a USB port for charging your phone and comes with a strap that will secure the speaker to almost anything. The BRV-X is a perfect outdoor companion that will keep the tunes crankin’ for up to 12 hours per charge."



  • BRAVEN BRV-X BLUETOOTH WIRELESS SPEAKER REVIEW
    By iLounge on 1/27/2014

    "Overall, BRV-X is a winner for Braven, and one of the best speakers the company has ever released. Handsome, sonically powerful, and well-equipped with useful accessories, it delivers a very good indoor listening experience while offering the sort of resilience and versatility users of outdoor speakers will appreciate."



  • BRAVEN BRV-X BLUETOOTH WIRELESS SPEAKER REVIEW
    By Digital Trends on 3/10/2014

    "Braven has built its sterling reputation in the portable speaker community with constant innovation, elegant-yet-sturdy design, and above all, excellent sound. That winning combination appears to have been utilized to its full potential in Braven’s latest creation, the rugged and extremely versatile Braven BRV-X Bluetooth speaker."

    "Conjuring images of dirt bike back flips and cases of Red Bull, the new BRV-X is designed to be the ultimate outdoor audio companion. Taking the lead from its rough-and-tumble little brother, the BRV-1, the larger and more powerful X is cloaked in IPX7-rated armor to resist the elements, and its 5200mAh battery also serves as a handy power station on your adventures, able to charge mobile devices, as well as larger gear such as an iPad, goPro, or digital camera."



  • BRAVEN BRV-X SPEAKER IS MADE FOR CAMPING & CHARGING GADGETS REVIEW
    By GottaBe Mobile on 1/7/2014

    "Not all gadgets are created equal, and most speakers don’t do well when wet. Braven though, has an IPX7 certification and the BRV-X is completely weatherproof. It’s also shockproof thanks to the high-impact plastic casing which is housed under a layer of rubber around the entire speaker. And that’s just the exterior, the interior and settings have even more options to help when you take it outdoors."

    "CES is packed full of accessories galore as you roam the halls, so finding one that everyone can enjoy or benefit from took some time. After trying out the Braven Rugged Outdoor speaker, we knew we found the right one."

    "Its unique, rugged package, and great sound makes it our best accessory of CES 2014."

    "Some gadgets aren’t built to withstand the rigors of the wilderness. Braven’s $229.99 BRV-X Bluetooth speaker is an exception."



  • CES 2014: BRAVEN'S NEW BRV-X RAISES THE BAR FOR RUGGED BLUETOOTH SPEAKERS REVIEW
    By iPhone Life on 1/9/2014

    "Braven's New BRV-X Raises the Bar for Rugged Bluetooth Speakers."

    "The BRV-X is truly a force to be reckoned with, and between its thunderous sound and Herculean design, it ranks as one of the best outdoor Bluetooth speakers I've ever seen or heard."



  • BRAVEN RUGGED BRV-X SPEAKER READY NOW FOR OUTDOOR ADVENTURE REVIEW
    By Technology Tell on 3/14/2014

    "People wanted more volume and power, and they got it. The BRV-X puts some of the best audio components inside a shell that’s designed to withstand dirt, shocks, water, and pretty much anything else you or the elements might throw at it. Heck, from the looks of it it could easily survive being thrown."

    "If all this isn’t enough, with the built-in TrueWireless technology you can get a second BRV-X unit and pair the two of them together for stereo sound. I had the chance to stop by the BRAVEN booth at CES 2014 to hear it in action, and I can attest that it’s very cool and sounds amazing that way."



  • BRAVEN BRV-X TAKES WIRELESS TO EXTREMES WITH NEW RUGGED SPEAKER REVIEW
    By ChipChick on 3/11/2014

    "Bluetooth speakers – that’s a crowded market. So, if you’re going to go for any niche, you’d better master it. That’s what the Braven BRV-X has tried to do in the world of rugged, outdoors Bluetooth speakers, and it’s tough enough to look like it’s a contender."

    "The Braven BRV-X is built. It has a rubberized exterior that can withstand falls and the elements, as well as sand, if you’re planning on taking it to the beach. Either way, it’s a speaker that’s been made with the great outdoors in mind, every inch of the way."



  • BRAVEN LAUNCHES THE NEW BRV-X; THE TRUEWIRELESS RUGGED OUTDOOR SPEAKER REVIEW
    By Android Spin on 3/10/2014

    "We have always had a special place for BRAVEN. We have been fortunate enough to spend countless hours pumping tunes through various BRAVEN speaker models over the years and with every new model they only get better"

    "The new BRV-X is capable of pumping out HD sound for a continuous 12 hours thanks to the 5200 mAh battery inside. That is some serious all day rocking during your adventures this summer. It is also IPX7 waterproof rated giving you piece of mind when out rafting or boating"



  • BRAVEN SHIPS BRV-X RUGGED OUTDOOR SPEAKER WITH WIRELESS STEREO PAIRING REVIEW
    By GeakBeat on 3/10/2014

    "While it is designed for outdoor use, it retains many of the futures that have made Braven a favorite at Geek Beat and added some new ones. It features a pair of custom HD drivers and omnidirectional bass radiators. It also has an indoor/outdoor switch to change the volume and sound based on your environment. The daisy chain feature in this model is wireless for two speaker left and right stereo operation. The BRV-X also includes a 5200 mAh battery for recharging USB devices like phones or action cameras."

  • I don't want to listen to anything else.
    By LS on 4/6/2015

    I purchased one of these in December 2014. I quickly ordered another so I could pair them in stereo. The sound is fantastic. It's hard to believe the sound they produce. This product is perfect for the outdoor / music enthusiast, although I enjoy them indoors as well. I was hesitant to spend this much on portable speakers. No regrets at all. I couldn't be more pleased with this product. Well done Braven. Thanks!

  • I need a second one, I love this thing!
    By Ben B on 4/5/2015

    I got my BRV-X as a groomsman's gift from a fellow music enthusiast and outdoorsman. I love this little box! The sound is really, really good, not like many of the other portable units that I've seen that have no bass. This one has it! Our one-year-old son is discovering music, and this has been a great "toy" for him. I can put some music on, set the unit on the ground close to him, and it's so durable I don't have to worry about him being delicate with it. What a great way for a child to have access to music! Now I just need another one for myself, ha ha. I highly recommend this product.

    By Kg on 3/23/2015

    I got the BRV-X as a belated Christmas gift a couple of weeks ago...the label "wireless speaker" hardly does this product justice.

    - Sound -- loud and crisp, great bass. Indoor/outdoor is genius -- indoor gives you more bass, I was shocked how good it sounds, especially when placed on a flat surface; the outdoor mode emphasizes the mid- to high-range so the sound carries much farther.
    - Portability -- certainly not pocket-sized, but I wanted more than pocket-sized sound. Easily fits in a day pack or weekend bag
    - Durability -- I've only had it 2 weeks, but have used in in the shower with no problem. It has an IP rating of 7, which technically means it should be able to be submerged at 1 meter for 30 minutes and still work. I read a review where a guy was pissed because he tried and it didn't. Don't care, and not gonna try. Just let me take it to the beach, out in the rain, in the shower and I'll be happy. Haven't dropped it yet, but I'm suspect of any electronics being able to take a long drop onto a hard floor. If it gets knocked off a table and doesn't work, I'll update the review.
    - Form factor -- the rubber coating and speaker grill are substantial, rubber does not feel like it will rub through or rip, ever. All the buttons have a solid feel to them. The cap on the back seals tight, just make sure you close it all the way. The rubber feet are excellent (maybe silicone-based?); very sticky but no residue or marks.
    - Functionality -- being able to charge your phone is a great feature, the battery life has been outstanding so far, I didn't even know it had a microphone (noise-canceling no less) for the speakerphone function. Buttons are multi-purpose and intuitive, nice that the volume up/down buttons also control your audio source. You can also pair up another one and get left/right stereo separation.
    - Value -- *cannot* beat the value of the current price online.

    Had not heard of the Braven brand before this, but I'm their new biggest fan. I'm getting another one to pair up and use for bigger parties.
