It's a beautiful looking portable speaker. I don't think the pictures do it justice. Although it's rugged looking it's still very very pretty.
Not too big. I suppose it's competitor is the Bose Bose ® SoundLink ® Mini Bluetooth Speaker
. However, if I had to pick on looks this would just win ahead of the Bose.
I have used the Bose at a party and was simply blown away by the big sound from a small gadget. But I was disappointed that the battery ran flat after a few hours. (before the party had ended.) The Braven on the other hand lasted ALL day and had juice to keep on going. I took it camping, played some tunes AND charged my phone using the Brazen. I liked that.
Well. It's small so I expected tiney, It's rugged so I expected too basey. But they have got it right in this small package. A nice, pleasant full sound that shouldn't disappoint.
