The Gadgeteer

Sounds good for it's size and looks good

from The Gadgeteer
Braven has done it again with the BRV-X. They have managed to make a Bluetooth speaker with looks and sound that means business. This is a speaker that will work as easily in a clean home as well as in the messy, real world... Full review

Full and rich and well-rounded audio

from Gizmodo

Do you need a portable Bluetooth speaker that can stand up to not just a bit, but a lot of punishment? The $299 Braven BRV-X is the high-tech equivalent of the tradie’s boombox — it can handle loud music without breaking a sweat, it can play for an entire workday without running out of power, and it can (probably) take a fair whack of abuse before breaking.

It’s more expensive than the UE Boom that has broadly similar sound characteristics and the same ability to pair a second speaker for stereo audio over USB, but for that extra price you get extra ruggedness a... Full review

A fantastic portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers powerful audio in a rugged design

from PC Magazine
For $200, the Braven BRV-X is worth every penny. Its audio is intense, its design is meant to withstand some nasty weather and minor abuse, and the Indoor/Outdoor switch is truly useful. Its thoughtful design and strong performance easily earn it our Editors' Choice award... Full review
Tech Bargains

Mid-sized portable Bluetooth speaker designed with outdoor use in mind

from Tech Bargains

There are a few reasons we have come to appreciate Braven's speakers over the years. The first area Braven stands out is the quality of sound. They use multiple drivers and a bass radiator in most of their models and the resulting fidelity is fantastic. The fact that they all have a USB power port for charging your gear makes them more versatile than much of the competition. The port on the BRV-X can even charge a full size iPad. Last year, the BRV-1 won us all over for its size, sound and rugged design. The BRV-X takes that same excellent design, adds bigger drivers and even more features.... Full review

Rugged construction and water resistance great for outdoor use but sound is a bit flat/muddy at times

from Phandroid

If you didn’t notice the recurring theme here, the Braven BRV-X excels as an outdoor speaker providing the background music to a day on the water, a cookout, or some lounging by the pool. The BRV-X is not the centerpiece to your next raging dance party. The sound quality falls slightly short and volume begins to be an issue in noisier settings. Rugged construction and resistance to water make it a great speaker to tow along on your other adventures, however.

Is it worth the $200 Braven is asking for it? At that price, it’s worth checking out competition from Jabra, Ja... Full review

Sound Guys

Feature packed but sound quality is slightly lacking

from Sound Guys
At $229, the Braven BRV-X isn’t the cheapest Bluetooth speaker on the market, nor is it the best sounding. That said, this is aimed at a select set of people, and if you fall in the middle of the Venn diagram that birthed this speaker, you’ll likely be very happy with it.If you don’t need the rugged build or charging capabilities, your money is likely best spent elsewhere, but if you’re looking for a way to bring your tunes on a three-day hike in rainy weather, Braven has got your back. ..

Digital Trends

One of the most impressive speakers in its class

from Digital Trends
Offering durability, portability, and top notch performance across the board, Braven’s BRV-X is one of the most impressive speakers in its class. Admittedly, it is a bit pricey at present, but we’ve seen that $220 number dip to $175 at Amazon, and we expect it to settle to around $200 soon. Pricing aside, those looking for brilliant sound, a glut of features, and a rugged design that can hang just about anywhere should put this speaker toward the top of their list... Full review
How-To Geek

Crisp mid-to-upper range sound quality but pricey

from How-To Geek

The BRV-X, despite its small size and throw-anything-at-it design, is a fairly high-end piece of stereo equipment. With an MSRP of $229.99, it isn’t cheap. So, while you’re not going to mind tossing it in your backpack or cringe if it gets knocked off the picnic table. You will mind if you lose it or it gets stolen (though the same could be said for the $199 Beats Pill).

For that price however, you do get a nice, clean, consistent sound (not too bassy) in a tough little, weather-resistant shell that you can take anywhere. Plus, with two sound modes, you’re assur... Full review

Has considerable better sound for wherever you might want to use it

from iLounge

BRV-X is a winner for Braven, and one of the best speakers the company has ever released. Handsome, sonically powerful, and well-equipped with useful accessories, it delivers a very good indoor listening experience while offering the sort of resilience and versatility users of outdoor speakers will appreciate. For these reasons, it merits our strong general recommendation and B+ rating. The price tag isn’t cheap, but it’s not as high as it might have been, either, a sign that Incipio is going to help Braven focus on delivering superior value going forward — something that...
