Braven BRV-X/2 Rugged Portable Speaker review

REVIEW – After a seemingly endless supply of Braven product to review, things kinda dried up when Zagg purchased Braven from Incipio. That’s now changing as a revived Braven has introduced four new portable Bluetooth speakers this year alone ranging in price from $40-$400. Each speaker boasts of built-in ruggedness to handle any weather conditions …

Wasserstein Aqua Dew Alexa shower speaker review

REVIEW – There’s nothing like a hot shower to wash away the day’s troubles, or simply to ease some aches and pains if you don’t have any troubles.  What could make that better?  Music, of course!  Anything else?  Sure – your old pal, Alexa, ready to do your bidding as you wash, rinse and repeat. …

Roland BTM-1 Bluetooth Speaker review

REVIEW – Bluetooth speakers are not hard to find. They come in all shapes and sizes. Guitar amps are also readily available and many now support Bluetooth. Roland’s BTM-1 strikes a different balance and pairs a tastefully retro portable Bluetooth speaker with an instrument input that might just be the speaker you didn’t know you …

Braven gets even more rugged with BRV speaker collection

NEWS – Over the past few years, I have reviewed many Braven portable Bluetooth speakers and have liked all of them—some more than others. When Incipio sold Braven to ZAGG last year, it seemed much of Braven’s speaker line began to disappear. No more. This year, Braven has added four new speakers to its BRV …

Creative MUVO Play portable and waterproof Bluetooth speaker review

REVIEW – In my years of reviewing portable Bluetooth speakers, one of my all-time favorites is the Creative iRoar speaker. It’s becoming a cliché, but that little desktop monster sounds way bigger than its size.

Soundcast VG5 weather resistant Bluetooth speaker review

REVIEW – Recently I reviewed the Bunktrunk footlocker for my daughter.  It came with a cute, little Bluetooth speaker about which I wrote, “It may not be loud enough to fill my house with sound, but it will be plenty loud in a dorm room.”  Looking back, I think this is how I thought about …

Audioengine 512 portable wireless speaker review

REVIEW – As I’ve reviewed a few Audioengine speakers over the years, one thing stands out as much as the audio quality, and that’s integrity. Audioengine doesn’t BS the customer with hyperbole or inflated specs. They are honest and deliver good to great audio products for a fair price. Even if I find fault with …
