Braven BRV-1 Bluetooth Speaker Review

Bluetooth speakers have become extremely popular over the past few years. They are pretty easy to take with you and provide hours of great music for you and your friends. Today we will be taking a look at Braven’s BRV-1 Bluetooth speaker which is made for the outdoors and should stand up against the elements. It is IPX7 certified waterproof meaning you don’t have to worry about rainfall or it getting splashed, it can even be fully submerged in one meter of water for 30 minutes! Beyond that it has a rugged design so it can take a beating! The speaker will give you 12 hours of playtime and even has a USB port if you want to plug in your device to charge it. Let’s see if the BRV-1 can stand up to the elements!

Special thanks to Braven for providing us with the BRV-1 Bluetooth Speaker to review.


The Braven BRV-1 comes in a retail package that is not much larger than the speaker itself. On the front there is a photo of the unit and it lets us know it is ultra rugged and waterproof.
