    Really Good Sound for the Size and Price

    Posted .

    This little Braven 570 is a great buy for the money, especially if you get it on sale like I did. I think it compares pretty favorably to most of the bigger names at 2-3X the price. The sound is crisp and pretty clean. It's not going to blow you away with volume, but it's loud enough for most in reasonable proximity of it. The max volume is probably limited to the point of distortion, because while other BT speakers may be louder, they distort at those higher volumes. So what's the point? The mid-bass is decent, but low deep-bass is understandably weak to nonexistent. The Baven 570 is pretty small, about the size of US paper money and about 1.75" thick. I especially love the inputs, outputs and controls. The on/off switch is a physical slide up/on down/off, so you always know if it is on or off, along with a sound it makes when you switch it on/off. It will also auto-shutoff if no BT signal is present after about 30 minutes. The +/- volume buttons give physical feedback (click) as you use them. They also function as Skip Track or Back Track if you hold them in. The BT pairing isn't a mystery, because it has it's own button with a phone handset symbol molded into it (I paired it without ever looking at the instructions). There is a standard 3.5mm input on the end with the switches and even one on the other end for output! Which is great if you want to supplement the sound with other speakers that don't have BT capability. I'm using the 3.5mm output jack to drive a powered speaker system with a subwoofer designed for computers to give the low deep-bass a punch and spread sound all over my workshop. The 1200 mAh battery inside is charged via a standard female microUSB. There is a standard female full size USB for charging other devices with the build-in battery. A sweet option when your phone or MP3 player runs out of juice (up to 1A, no tablets) and another thing that "blows" away the big name BT speaker. And there is a separate button switch for checking the battery status via a small LED next to it, not some cryptic combination of button presses to perform. The package includes one male 3.5mm to male 3.5mm cable, and one male USB to male microUSB cable. No separate charger is included. A standard cell phone microUSB charger works just fine. The case design (looks like metal but is actually plastic) has dual speakers on one side with dual passive radiators on the reverse side. This little speaker functions as a speaker phone too, that's another thing one of the biggest names in speakers (that never go on sale) at 2-3X the price doesn't do. I haven't tested the limits of the BT range, the expected battery life of 10 hours, or tried pairing it with other Braven BT speakers which are claimed by Braven, but I would expect it could. I actually got three of these for less than the price of the big name BT speakers so I'm able to have one for the road, put one in my workshop, and keep one on my sun porch. BOOOM!

    I listen to a large range of music, and at loud volumes. I bought this item so the battery would last for long periods of time, and I wouldn't worry about charging it. This speaker does a great job, interacts with my devices well, and has a decent volume.

    I bought this speaker for listening to my iTunes at the pool. When I am cleaning up around the house. Things like that to give some extra volume. For a very affordable price. It works perfectly for what I bought it. I am only on month in. No it is not the best or most powerful speakers on the market.

    This is a basic speaker that is fine. I did return it and get the lighted speakers that respond to sound and dance instead.

    Poor connectivity. Barely decent sound. Pass on this one.
