Braven hits a triple with new wireless speakers

I stopped trying to keep up with Braven ages ago. Just when you think this prolific portable speaker company couldn’t come up with any more speakers—Wham! They deliver a completely new line of speakers. I’m surprised, but I shouldn’t be. Lately, Braven has been concentrating on the outdoor market by offering tough and waterproof, yet …

SumSonic Bluetooth Speaker review

Sandworms.  Admiral Ackbar. Dual-lens Camera. These are a few of the things folks said this Bluetooth speaker looks like. I thought the speaker market was nearing its endpoint with different designs, but this tubular doughnut came out of nowhere. SumSonic calls it the LLX-01 – which is not helpful in imagining what it looks like. But, the …

Braven BRV-Blade Bluetooth speaker review

With all the Braven Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed, I’m amazed how each speaker has its own “personality” in both how it handles and sounds. Some Braven speakers excel in bass, some are more tuned for vocals. You might think that they would strive for a similar sound signature across their speaker line, but I’m now …

Go back to the future with the Qwerkywriter Bluetooth keyboard

Back in July 2014, Julie wrote about the Qwerkywriter, a retro-styled Bluetooth keyboard that looked like the keyboard from a 1930’s typewriter.  At the time the funding campaign was launched, the keyboard had a decorative return bar and paper platen, as well as vintage-style keys with mechanical switches for that clickety-clackety sound.  In the time …

Evoplus Q9 Car Charger With Bluetooth Headset review

Bluetooth headsets and USB car chargers are a dime a dozen. You can find them everywhere. But what you can’t find everywhere is a device that combines both of these together. The Evoplus Q9 car charger combines two separate USB ports with a built-in Bluetooth headset. One of the things I liked most about this …

Braven BRV-1M portable Bluetooth speaker review

You might think that after reviewing the ginormous Braven BRV-XXL, it would be a letdown following that up with a review of the much, much smaller BRV-1M speaker. But that would be a wrong assumption. Yes, the BRV-XXL sounds better—a lot better than the BRV-1M. So what? It ought to—it’s over ten times bigger and …
