For wireless listening no matter where you are, Braven speakers are durable and sound great. Their impressive batteries can run for 12 to 22 hours, and some models have external USB cords that can be used to charge other devices. The waterproofing in some speakers is reliable, and the tough rubber exteriors prevent damage from drops so you can bring these speakers on any adventure. The Bluetooth connectivity is reliable, and some speakers include an auxiliary cable as well. A range of bold and bright colors are available. Though the sound quality is excellent, not all Braven speakers can handle loud volumes.
