Aliens came from the future and presented us with the Braven 650 Portable Wireless Speaker. WIth the ability to melt brains with loud sound, take hands-free calls from intergalactic overlords with the built-in speakerphone, and recharge mobile devices while scouring other planets for life, the Braven 650 is a truly out-of-this-world product.
I did a side by side comparison of this speaker with the Soundmatters FoxLv2 Platinum, and this speaker is better. The June 2012 Sound & Vision magazine review of this speaker is accurate. It sounds great, is well built and will charge your phone. Excellent speakerphone. No instruction manual, so read the online manual at Braven.com to learn how to make the volume go up and down. Plays loud and clear. If you are looking for a stylish audiophile small bluetooth speaker, this is it. Backcountry was a good buying experience. I will shop with them again.
I've heard good things about Braven so I had to try one. It is super easy to sync up with Bluetooth and sounds good enough (wish it had more bass). I have noticed it you go into the other room with your iPhone the connection starts to cut out from the signal being blocked buts works again once you are back in range. Incredible battery life and can be linked with more speakers. Overall I like it and am glad I got it!
I have researched several, heard numerous units, and...i anxiously await the arrival of my new piece of equipment - Braven 650! I pray the specs are dead on...if so, then, I should be fairly happy! I will let everyone know how it turns out...when I receive my unit! Thanks all & be "Blessed!"
I originally purchased this Wireless Speaker "only" for the actual speaker itself but, the Unit has surpassed ALL expectations. Although it is only 3w per channel, the sound is full and robust with the "lows" also sounding and feeling like they should...this Unit is AWESOME!
Thanks for a great product!
