On the heels of Braven’s 805 speakers, Braven also released a couple more speakers, including a new line up to the awesome BRV series! In addition to the 805, Braven has let loose the Baven Balance and Braven BRV-PRO yesterday, whilst today, for the compact traveler, the Braven Bridge! What really sets apart the BRV-PRO apart here now is the additional inclusion of LED lights and a solar panel to keep the music pumping without the need to actually re-charge it, on top of whatever the BR-V1 already offers.
The Braven Balance is a compact and slim speaker that has 4,400 mAh of battery, that can be used to charge your phone as well on the go.
Available in six lively colors, the BRAVEN Balance features an anti-slip exterior for easy carrying even when wet and is capable of surviving accidental spills or drops with an IPX5 waterproof rating, making it perfect for both indoor and outdoor use. BRAVEN’s latest speaker comes with BRAVEN Balance Technology, a proprietary bass optimization system that pumps out deep, rich sound even at lower volumes.
“Music and fitness go hand in hand, they help you maintain a balanced mind, body and soul,” said Andy Fathollahi, Chief Executive. “The Balance is the perfect speaker for the active mobile lifestyle. It unites smart design with functionality by having a slim shape to fit into any bag or backpack and the power to get your adrenaline going.”
BRAVEN Balance features a built-in 4400mAh battery that charges your mobile devices when needed, and can transform into a hands-free speakerphone with a built-in noise-canceling microphone. The BRAVEN Balance will be available in Q2 of 2015 in Raven, Alpine, Raspberry, Electric, Sunset, and Periwinkle color ways for $149.99.
The Braven Bridge on the other hand, is optimized mainly for calls, so it is equipped with dual omni-directional microphones and noise cancelling technology to make your voice crisp and clear to the recipient.
Highly customizable to fit any personal preference or executive taste, the BRAVEN Bridge offers a selection of genuine leather and individually machined and anodized aluminum options for utmost sophistication and personalization. The sleek BRAVEN Bridge can also double as a powerful Bluetooth speaker to stream music and charge mobile devices with an internal 2800mAh.
“The Bridge eliminates the ‘can you hear me issue’ and is the optimal conference call experience while traveling or at the office,” said Valentine Lopez, Executive Vice President. “BRAVEN’s signature noise-canceling technology ensures clear sound no matter how crowded the room might be and the design elements creates a premium experience.”
The lightweight, portable BRAVEN Bridge will be available in Q2 of 2015 for $299.99.
Finally, the one that commandeers the respect from the other portable speakers – the BRV-PRO. With a IPX7 waterproof design, a built-in 2,200mAh rechargeable battery that can also be used to charge your devices, it can be upgraded further to include a solar panel to charge the speaker’s battery on the go. The fact that we can swap and swop accessories to power up this beast, this beast is no doubt going to be the versatile speaker that I am so looking forward to. I wonder if I can use all at one go though.
BRAVEN’s BRV-PRO delivers full HD sound and powerful bass in a compact, IPX7 waterproof design shielded by aircraft grade aluminum. Equipped for any adventure, the BRV-PRO can also be customized with versatile attachments that extend adaptability. Capable of wirelessly blasting music for up to 20 hours, the BRV-PRO features a built-in 2,200mAh rechargeable battery that doubles as a power bank to charge USB devices and can be outfitted with a solar charging panel for virtually endless music and power.
The BRV-PRO can be armed with several accessories including:
– BRV Battery Pack – Added 2800mAh of power for extended music and charging
– BRV Glow Deck – LED pad doubles as a mini-lantern
– BRV Folding Solar Panel – For all day music and charging
– BRV Stack Plate Multiplier – Linking mechanism that allows for stacking multiple
BRV-PRO speakers to wirelessly multiply music
– GoPro compatible action mount – GoPro compatible camera mount
– Qi Wireless Charging Pad – For powering up all Qi-compatible wireless charging devices
“We’ve created a truly unique and customizable audio experience for outdoor adventurers with a versatile ecosystem of accessories ready to tackle any quest,” says Andy Fathollahi, Chief Executive. “The potential of the BRV-PRO is limitless, the power is ongoing, and the adventures are never-ending. There is nothing like the BRAVEN BRV-PRO on the market.”
The BRV-PRO will be available for purchase starting at $149.99 with the accessories ranging from $29.99 to $49.99 in Q2 of 2015.
