Braven‘s a big name in the speaker sub-industry—with matching big prices. Its portable Bluetooth speakers are pretty, and command a pretty penny. That’s why the 570, one of its newest models, breaks the mold with a more affordable audio solution.
We’ve all seen Bravens before: it’s usually a rectangular box with lots of holes in it, and baby, it’s a loud little sucker. Well, this one isn’t really much different.
The Braven 570 HD Wireless Speaker retains the shape and components of its brothers, and more importantly, their impeccable performance. It comes closest to its big brother Braven 650 in appearance.
The 570 connects easily via Bluetooth to your laptop, smartphone, tablet or MP3 player, and belts out the audio in a very loud, clear volume, enough for a medium-sized room, with very little distortion at maximum levels. There’s also a noise-cancelling microphone situated on the lower right front of the speaker, just above the Braven 570 label, for a nice speakerphone function.
In the box, aside from the speaker, you get a micro-USB charging cable, a 3.5mm AUX audio cable, and some paperwork.
On one end, the right, the 570 has a bunch of controls: a power switch, volume up and down buttons, a speakerphone button, along with a 3.5mm AUX IN audio port for connecting non-Bluetooth devices, and a micro-USB port for charging.
On the left end, you get a Bluetooth pairing button, a 3.5mm AUX OUT port if you want to daisy-chain it to another Braven for the stereo experience, and finally, a full USB port (we’ll get to that a bit later).
There are a couple of 40mm drivers in there, a 40mm passive subwoofer, and a Class D digital amplifier. The 570 can output as much as 6W, which makes it a formidable little speaker. The bass is good, although the highs can get to be a little trebly and harsh at the maximum volume. But on the whole it’s a good speaker, even if it only delivers a mono experience.
Now let’s get to why the 570 is cheaper than its brethren:
The Braven 570 HD Wireless Speaker/Speakerphone/Phone Charger comes in black, white, red, green violet and blue colors, and is available for a more affordable Php 4,450 at Digital Hub, Digital Walker and Beyond The Box branches.
