During the holidays, portable Bluetooth speakers are almost the perfect gift for your favorite audio gadget geek and Braven has come out with two new Stryde models for 2017: the Braven Stryde and Stryde XL. These two Stryde speakers compliment the Stryde 360—made for outdoor use and an active lifestyle.
New materials and color scheme for the new, flat Stryde matches the circular Stryde 360. This Stryde is an update to the discontinued Braven Balance speaker, but with some important improvements. It comes with dual full range drivers for clean highs and bass from two opposing passive radiators optimized with tuned EQ for 22 hours of playtime. It’s shockproof housing is sealed against dust and water and has an IP67 waterproof rating, protecting it from a dip in the pool or beach salt and sand.
Bluetooth Smart technology allows pairing with the new Stryde Active Speaker App to remotely power the speaker from up to 33 feet away and you can choose a personalized EQ setting. You can also use the two-way, high-definition integrated speakerphone and charge your mobile device from a built-in 4400mAh battery.
The new Stryde is now compatible with Siri and Google Voice allowing you to send messages, make calls and look up the nearest place to grab a bite.
The larger Stryde XL will create massive sound to take your playground where ever you are. Its portable frame is also shock-resistant with an IP67 waterproof rating, meaning it can be submerged in up to three feet of water for 30 minutes. The Stryde XL is engineered with two extended range drivers with dual opposing passive radiators for a balanced experience indoors or out. Like the Stryde, the Stryde XL is also compatible with Siri and Google Voice.
