    Braven BRV-X Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review

    "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."

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

    "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."

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.
