  • Pretty good, small speaker.

I wanted a speaker for streaming music and podcasts on my phone while driving my convertible (my older car's stereo does not have Bluetooth or even an aux jack), and this speaker does the trick - volume is sufficient and the sound is good. I like that I can also charge my phone via the speaker if I need to (but I have a dual-jack USB power adapter so I keep the back ports closed). Bluetooth pairing was pretty easy.

    The controls are OK. Note: I have to hold power button down a *long* time to turn the speaker on/off, but that's not a big deal.Bluetooth.

    Why only 4 stars, you may ask? I have a couple of issues:

    1) Whomever decides (on any product) to use black-on-black control buttons needs to get a new job. This is just so, so stupid. In a dark situation (a car at night, in a bedroom, wherever), I should be able to see what each button does without having to turn a light on. They don' need to be back-lit but *some* contrast or color would make identifying them possible in dim light.

    2) The package is crazy excessive, with a huge hunk of worthless plastic that while I will recycle it, I bet there are many who will drop it in the trash. It's 2015 and there is no excuse for any company to use this much material just for a nice open-the-box experience that is the initial 10 seconds of my experience with the product over (I hope) several years of use.

    I love the sound on the Braven and that it will link with my iPhone, IPad, and every other smart devise we have tried so far. Som I love the sound on the Braven and that it will link with my iPhone, IPad, and every other smart devise we have tried so far. Sometimes it takes a couple of tries, but that could very well be pilot error or that we have so many Bluetooth devices around. The battery holds a charge for quite awhile. I really like that it is moisture resistant since I like using it on the back porch and have forgotten to bring it in a few times. The sound is great and I like the option of using it as a speaker phone which I plan to try out very soon. It is compact enough to easily take with you on trips (including on a motorcycle) and you don't need to pack CDs since you can just use the music on your other devices. I do wish it came with a regular wall charger an not just the USB, but we have enough phone chargers to cover that issue.
