    Very impressed on the sound!!

    • Written by from Prophetstown

    This thing is very small and only bought it because I had a gift card because I think it is kind of expensive but I think it would be worth buying! It is extremely loud and doesn't distort the music at full volume at all. I have not tested it in water but I don't really have any intentions to get it wet. I really like the little thing and the bluetooth works perfectly even though there was a review saying something different. The battery also lasts for a very long time!

    Awesome little speaker!

    • Written by from Regina

    This little guy is exactly what they say - rugged! It's great for camping, on a boat, or just general use - indoors or out. And surprisingly, it sounds pretty awesome! I've heard some bad bluetooth speakers, but this one has a good tone with bass. Highly recommended! I might buy two: one for the cabin and one for at home!

    I have now owned two of these... they are awful. I own a whitewater rafting company and bought these for the guides to listen to while doing work outside; the thing drops signal, is always turning off at random, and is just an outright waste of money. The company is a shifty one also. I dealt with them so much I think I developed a migraine... We have plenty of other bluetooth items, this isn't user error, this is a defective product and a manufacturer that is out to make a buck without earning it.

    Excellent weather resistant speaker (great for shower)

    • Written by from Waltham

    The BRV-1 is a seriously impressive little speaker. Not only is it water resistant (I've had it in my shower for over a year) but it sounds great, has decent bass and the battery seems to last forever. This is my third Braven speaker and I haven't been let down by any of them. Well done.

    Great Product

    • Written by from Ross

    This baby has amazing sound quality and is basically indestructible. Wireless, pure, clean sound from a very well built product, what more can you ask for? You will not be disappointed. This is definitely one of the best things I have ever spent money on, Yes, it is that useful and nice to listen to. If you want to bring your music with you wherever you go, this is what you want.

    Bang for the Buck!

    • Written by from Houston

    The BRV-1 is tough and sounds great. I have one and have given several to clients and friends as gifts. They are 100% indestructible. I have dropped mine into the pool more than once (I am clumsy) and it still functions like new.

    Braven makes a great product. The sound quality is great considering the small footprint and fair price.

    If you are considering a speaker for the beach or poolside, the BRV-1 is ideal. Plus, you can charge your phone on the go. This is a great feature when traveling.

    The 12 hour play time per charge is very handy.

    If you are on the fence about a Bluetooth speaker, don't hesitate to give the BRV-1 a try!

    Awesome! Waterproof, great sound, good bass, and indestructible!!

    • Written by from Woods Cross

    This little sucker is awesome! It's basically waterproof (manufacturer says otherwise, but mines taken a dip in the lake a few times and come out just fine). The thing has great bass for how small it is and good clarity. It is pretty much indestructible; been run over with a car, dropped down a few cliffs, etc. and other than some scuffs to the rubber the sucker keeps on rockin! Great bluetooth range as well and easy to connect. Controls on the speaker work fantastic to switch songs, pause, etc. It's a great little speaker, definitely buy it if you like your tunes to join you in the outdoors or very wet environments (hot tub with your personal playlist by your side).
