Rugged Bluetooth Speaker - Braven BRV-1

Rugged Bluetooth Speaker – Braven BRV-1

Braven BRV-1I usually listen to music in my yard while I am gardening or shooting my bow. I use my phone to play the music since my stereo is in the house. The problem is that my phone has the worst speakers ever. I had been thinking about purchasing a Bluetooth speaker to use in my yard so I was pretty excited when AT&T offered to send me one to review (and one to give away!). I received the Braven BRV-1 Bluetooth speaker and it is quite a wonderful piece of technology.

The Braven BRV-1 is a rugged Bluetooth speaker that is waterproof, has a built-in microphone, runs Bluetooth 2.1, and has a built-in battery bank. It linked up with my phone very easily, had good sound quality, and ample volume capabilities. I especially love this speaker because it is waterproof. I can take it fishing, to the pool, use it while gardening, shooting my bow in the yard, playing at the park, and so many other fun uses.
