You would think BRAVEN might take it easy for a bit after releasing so many speaker models over the past few months. Nope. After debuting the BRAVEN 600 (review here), 625s, and 650 portable aluminum Bluetooth speakers, they quickly released a more affordable plastic 570 and the tough BRV-1 speakers. Now, BRAVEN has just overshadowed those speakers with the monstrous BRAVEN 850, a direct shot at Jawbone’s successful BigJambox speaker. The speakers feature extended-range aluminum cone drivers with dual passive radiators which should fill a good sized room. The 850 looks exactly like the original 650, only pumped up on steroids. It’s more powerful (20 watts), more bigger (9.5″ x 2.75″ x 4″), more louder, more everything. It’s also more expensive at $299.99. The 850 features 20 hours of continuous wireless playback, built-in speakerphone, AUX port, SRS WOW HD audio, USB-powered built-in charger, and aptX Bluetooth. Like other BRAVEN speakers, the 850 speaker can be daisy-chained to another 850 for even bigger and true stereo sound.

The BRAVEN 850 is available now and will ship on July 15.

    I recently purchased a Braven 440 via QVC that I’ve found to be extremely good sounding and useful to the point that it goes in my every day carry bag.
    Nice products from this company.

    Strider,
    I would carry the Braven 600 Speaker — that I recently reviewed — in my backpack, but my daughter stole it. :(
