I’ve been using the BRAVEN 570 for quite some time now and it’s one of my favorite Bluetooth speakers in terms of audio quality. What I don’t like about it however is that it is not waterproof so it’s not something I can use in every situation. That’s where the new BRAVEN 855s comes in. This is BRAVEN’s newest wireless speaker and also their largest one.

The new BRAVEN 855s measures in at a whopping 10×4 inches but the added size means more powerful sounds, an amazing 20 hours of of use between charges, and all in a shock absorbing, water resistant body. All this makes for one very interesting new speaker, one that you can take everywhere and use in any situation. The BRAVEN 855s is available now for $299.99. Check out the full press release below for more details.

Press Release

Provo, Utah – July 22nd, 2013 – BRAVEN announces the immediate availability of the BRAVEN 855s, the biggest rugged BRAVEN yet.  The 855s comes encased in a shock-absorbing water-resistant exterior, making it the perfect high-fidelity wireless speaker for sport, travel, around the house, and outdoor experiences.

The BRAVEN 855s measures less than 10 inches long and 4 inches tall, but delivers enough power to fill raucous rooms or outdoor parties with amazing audio.  Designed for the adventurer, the 855s is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, has a brute looking grill and is able to charge mobile devices including cameras, smartphones, even tablets.  Similar to the BRAVEN 850, the 855s can also wirelessly daisy chain with a second 855s or 850 speaker for a true left and right wireless stereo experience.

To produce BRAVEN’s signature powerful and rich sound, the BRAVEN 855s uses a combination of class-leading extended-range aluminum cone drivers, dual passive radiators and a digitally enhanced audio based on DTS Audio’s SRS WOW technology.  The BRAVEN 855s has an impressive playtime of up to 20 hours, uses Bluetooth 3.0 connection for effortlessly pairing, has an integrated speakerphone for hands-free calls and has an IPX3 water resistant rating.

“BRAVEN believes that award-winning audio should be accessible in all locations, and the 855s makes great music possible no matter where you are,” stated BRAVEN CEO, Warren Osborn.  “The 855s satisfies even the most demanding music lover whether they are out in the wild or just relaxing at home – and goes with you anywhere you go.”

The BRAVEN 855s is currently available for $299.99. For more information about the BRAVEN 855s or the entire line of BRAVEN wireless speakers, visit www.braven.com. Visit our YouTube page to see the BRAVEN speakers in action.
