Overall Customer Ratings
This is an amazing outdoor speaker. sounds awesome, extremely loud, and so far it has been very durable. This thing is definitely built to last. My only small complaint is that it doesn't have any sort of padding for the shoulder strap. I often bring this out to slow pitch games and usually parking isn't the best. It gets pretty uncomfortable (on your shoulder) after a 5-10 minute walk, and simply carrying it in your hand will make your upper arm feel sore by the time you get there. Other than that this thing is great, from the bottlecap opener to being able to charge your phone.
Tough! I tie it to my adventure motorcycle and ride away. It's almost two years old and still rocking right along with me. I got it for Father's day and still consider it the best present my children ever got me.
This thing is awesome. Really good bass and amazing sound. The only problem is that the 14 hour battery life may not be true. On full blast I'm lucky to get 6. I suggest buying though.
I got this for Christmas and had never heard of it. I set it up and thought my floor was going to cave in. Crystal clear sound and louder than a car radio. Incredible. Can't wait to tailgate, beach and camp with this loud big boy.
Amazing speaker. I'd give it 5 stars except it says 12 hour playtime but when you max the volume it last about 5-6 hours if you're lucky. Wish it really lasted 12 hours. Sound is spectacular, (could be louder), overall beat speaker for its size
I paired this bad boy with an equalizer that I downloaded to my smart phone. Now we are talking bad boy. Even deeper bass and rich highs. Try it for yourself.....you will love it.
The Braven XXL Bluetooth speaker is by far the best speaker I've heard. The booming of the bass with the 14 hour long battery. Non stop all day listening. To outdoors and indoors put you in the mood. Jaw dropping bass. Love the water resistance you can't get that with other portable devices.
Well...it's just short of amazing. I picked up the BRV-XXL for poolside use. It absolutely fills my pool area with powerful, clean, crisp sound. Whether you are listening to AC/DC or Andrea Bocelli, you will not be disappointed. Buy it!
This speaker made my day after watching youtube on it. the bass is the best. Glad I have one.
I just purchased the Braven XXL as a temporary replacement for a failing JBL Xtream. I paid full price with the two year warranty and was told when my replacement JBL gets in, I could return the Braven XXL and get a full refund for it. However, after trying out the Braven XXL I don't want to give it back when my JBL gets in. The Braven sounds amazing. I thought my JBL was the best and loudest Bluetooth speaker on the market.
I'm hoping the retailer will just let me keep this one and credit me for the cost of the Xtream. Although the Braven is much heavier, and about twice the size, I don't care. My goal in life is to share good music with friends on the beach using the best sounding portable speakers possible. This will defiantly get the parties started.
Let's just get to it...if you need an outdoor, rugged, LOUD, and truly FANTASTIC sounding speaker...the BRV-XXL is the BEST option on the market. Period. After comparing with other $250-350 portable bluetooth speakers, let's just say that all the other units have been sold. The XXL truly is the KING of large-scale, portable, rugged bluetooth speakers. Sound is very hi-fi (and adjustable with bass / treble controls), bass is FELT at higher volumes, controls are spot on, comes with a nice carry strap (with bottle opener...PARTY!)...Braven really pulled out all the stops on this one. Very impressed all around. Now, true...it is a big unit, definitely on the larger size of the portable category. However, the XXL has SET the STANDARD for large portable, rugged bluetooth speakers with this design. No sense in looking elsewhere...I've done it, and the XXL is A KEEPER!
WOW! Just wow. This thing is amazing. How does braven do it? So much sound I can't even describe it. Nothing else on the market can even come close to this thing. Amazing sound. I have bought almost every braven speaker and nothing comes close to what they have just come out with. From the house to the front of my atv this thing packs a punch.
Good job braven. Going to be hard to top this. But I'm sure you guys will find a way.
This thing is a BEAST! An awesome beast! It is so solid and so tough. It puts out an incredible amount of sound. Strong clear sound from BOTH sides and a subwoofer underneath. It really is like a tank, the build is so solid.
I carefully compared the XXL to all of my other favorite portable speakers. In terms of pure sound it beats all of them except for one (which I will not name here), HOWEVER that other speaker does NOT offer any water resistance or anywhere near the ruggedness of the XXL, nor does it have the 360 degree sound of the XXL. Those are important features for many people and many possible uses. I am very pleased with this speaker. I bought two, and I'm hoping that a future firmware update will allow for Left/Right pairing of two speakers.
