2) Wireless – Stream audio via Bluetooth
Being a bluetooth speaker, the BRAVEN BRV-1 speakers does what it should do well. It can be paired to any bluetooth enabled device easily. This makes it extremely useful for the speakers to be brought outdoor where cables create a mess and is a hassle to include a 3.5mm audio out jack as well just to make sure that they have got everyone covered.

3) Make Calls – Built in Microphone
The BRAVEN BRV-1 has also got a built in microphone installed within its unit to allow calls to be made directly from the device itself. It could be even possible for drivers to use this trendy device as their dedicated in-car speakerphone. Their smart phones can be connected to the BRV-1 automatically and they can use the BRV-1 as a handsfree device, allowing them to revise calls even when driving.
4) Use it as a Portable Charger
I found that the BRAVEN team has done quite a good job in designing the BRV-1. Not just esthetically, but also much into the small details and user scenario. As such, they decided to allow users to use the inbuilt USB 2.0 port to have power output, essentially making the speakers a portable power bank, sharing the power between the speakers and other devices.

With its dual 3W speaker output and a dedicated 70mm subwoofer, sounds are made to be clear and loud. Vocals are put to focus and stands out from the rest of the music. The BRAVEN BRV-1 performs adequately well at high frequencies, but bass was lacking even with its dedicated subwoofer. Of course, it should be taken note that audio quality is all determined by personal preferences. In terms of the loudness of the device, BRV-1 was able to fill a standard sized room with good music.
I thought that BRAVEN has definitely done well in creating the BRV-1. Quick access buttons make the speakers highly user friendly and I found it to be very usable and surprisingly easy to use and setup. The product and brand tries to reach out to those who wants a durable and reliable device. The BRV-1 has even utilised various rugged designs to make sure that it has got is BRAVEN essence found within. It differentiates itself very well in the market. However, what I really thought was that there will still be quite a limited number of consumers who actively searches for such aspects to a device.
