BRAVEN Expands Portable Audio Line Up, Debuts World’s First Bluetooth Speaker to Charge iPad, Waterproof Model, and Budget-Friendly Option at CES

Provo, Utah – January 8, 2012 – The world’s most talented speakers just got even more talented with the addition of three new BRAVEN Bluetooth speaker models: the 850, BRV-1, and 570.  Joining the BRAVEN family, the 850 is similar to the brand’s wildly popular Six Series, but is four times larger and delivers massive, industry-leading sound.  The BRV-1 is uniquely suited for outdoor adventures with its compact, waterproof, ultra-shock-resistant design weighing in at less than 400 grams.  The BRAVEN 570 delivers the same awesome industry-leading audio as its predecessors with a stylish, economical exterior and a lower price point.

“Last year, BRAVEN thundered into the market with impossibly huge sound from speakers small enough to carry in your pocket”, says CEO Warren Osborn. “Once again BRAVEN is changing the game, pushing the Bluetooth speaker to new levels with products that play to the outdoor and sports enthusiast and bring in new fans.

BRAVEN 850: At nearly 4x the size of the flagship Six Series, BRAVEN’s 850 pumps out unbelievable sound from a speaker less than a foot long.  Like the smaller brothers, the 850 provides emergency device charging, impressive play time, integrated speakerphone, and an aircraft grade aluminum housing.  In addition to mind-blowing sound, the BRAVEN 850 also delivers two features its competitors can’t: it will charge iPads, tablets, and other 2.1A devices (as well as cell phones), and offers wireless pairing between two 850 speakers for left and right stereo. It will be available at $299.99 MSRP.

BRAVEN BRV-1: BRAVEN gives action sports and outdoor enthusiasts 12 hours of music they can bring into the backcountry, rock faces, skate parks, virgin powder downhills, rafting rapids, or even the beach. With its IPX5 certified water resistant, shock absorbent, ultra-lightweight and compact design, the palm-sized speaker is set to rock the outdoor electronics market.  The BRAVEN BRV-1 will be available in February 2013 at $179.99 MSRP.

BRAVEN 570: Aimed at the cost-conscious music lover, the new 570 gives consumers the same audio amazing audio fidelity of the BRAVEN Six Series at a lower price point. With reduced packaging, 10 hour play time, an impact-resistant polymer case, BRAVEN’s engineers deliver the same industry-leading sound quality at a budget-friendly price point while still providing BRAVEN’s patent pending mobile device charging ability. The BRAVEN 570 will be available immediately in black and white at $119.99 MSRP.  Multiple colors will be available in January.
