Braven BRV-X Outdoor Water Resistant Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review

What's Hot

 

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

Sound projection: Outdoor mode will see you spread the tunes around to all who wish to listen in and probably a few who don't.

 

Pairing options: If one simply isn't enough, you can pair another speaker for double the sound.

 

What's Not

 

1A USB output: Don't expect to gather much charge out of the 1A USB output and the 5200 mAh internal battery.

Lack of clarity: An issue that plagues every speaker, the indoor mode may be satisfactory for your listening experience.

 

No USB charge options: The battery is only 5200 mAh, I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to charge this product through micro-USB.

 

 

Final Thoughts

 

This speaker is solid, water resistant, Bluetooth, loud and a little expensive. The good features certainly outweigh the bad and I would definitely suggest picking up a couple if you've got the money spare to spend, and either way, it's still going to be cheaper than most big-brand commercial offerings in electronic stores.

Charging only through a wall-supplied source is a certain downside, however, with 5200 mAh in the tank, you should have no issues listening to a day filled with music whilst outside having a BBQ, boat trip or house party.
