For action-sports fanatics, the Braven BRV-1 does not disappoint. It gives its users up to 12 hours of music that can be enjoyed in practically any outdoor environment (including rafting rapids or skating in parks). Boasting an IPX5 certified water resistant, shock absorbency, and Bluetooth compatibility, this ultra-lightweight device comes in a compact design. But, its small-sized speaker should not deceive the user since it can rock any environment all night long! The Braven BRV-1 is also able to stand up to water splashes (but don’t take it swimming) and other tough environments given its rubber protective case. Another feature that has gained it popularity is the capacity to apply a bit of extra pressure to the volume buttons which results in the track skipping back or forwards that makes it easier to use for one not holding the handset in each arm.
Power on and power off emit different tones and the LED light on the front of the speaker shows when it’s been ignited. Ultimately, given all these features and more the Braven BRV-1 is fabulous for playing music and has an impressive audio system using its two 1-9/16″ full-range drivers.
