Tech Tuesday | Braven 570 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers

3/12/2013Shen





Much like my beauty products, I like to have a lot of uses when it comes to my gadgets. Since getting my iPhone 5 from Smart last Friday, I found that I can maximize it's use by pairing it with devices. One of which is the popular Braven 570 (Php4,450). A portable wireless bluetooth speaker.

Like I said, I like functionality and Braven 570 is exactly that.

Not only is it sleek and light, it also does the following:
  • Act as speakers, via bluetooth and 3.5mm jack
  • Built-in speaker phones to receive calls hand-free
  • (imagine doing the same thing as that Smart TV Ad but with your phone rather than computer)
  • Charger using the USB port (1200 mAh)
  • Playtime up to approximately 10 hours
  • It's made from impact-resistant material that it can take a lot of beating
  • It's portable, you can bring it anywhere.



On the right side of the Braven 570 you'll find the following:
  • On/Off button
  • Speakerphone
  • Volume buttons (act as track forward and backward when you press and hold)
  • Line in for non-bluetooth devices (iPod shuffle, nano, etc.)
  • Mini USB in is for charging the device (provided in the box of course)



On the left side, you'll have the following:
  • Battery-check light and button (white: 100-50%; blue: 50-10%; red: 10% to 0%)
  • Line Out for additional Braven speaker should you want more sound
  • USB port for charging your phones of other devices



See how tiny it is?

I love watching my shows and I tried hooking this up to my TV and computer and it worked flawlessly inside my almost 20 sqm. room. We watched American Idol and Saving Private Ryan using this speaker and the sound quality is great. Thanks to its HD audio quality. And yes, the bass is equally fantastic.

And the whole time I was taking picture of this, it was playing and the sound didn't give out despite the noise down at the pool and the openness of our balcony. I got to enjoy the music of Lisa Loeb, Third Eye Blind and Skee-lo. It's my favorite speakers to date and that's saying a lot since I'm a big fan of Soundfreaq's Sound Kick.

Given it's portability, lightweight along with how tiny it is and still provides an HD audio quality has kicked taken the spot of SoungKick.

And it's a few hundrends cheaper, too!



If you like the Braven 570 (Php3,950), you can get them at the following stores: Beyond the Box, Digital Hub, Digital Walker, i Sstudio, Astrovision, Astroplus, iCenter-Cebu, Powerhub-Cebu

  1. Hi, Neat post. There’s a problem with your website in internet explorer, would test this… IE still is the market leader and a big portion of people will miss your excellent writing because of this proble.
