Summary: We got this speaker as a gift last Christmas (2013). It worked well for about 10 months. Then it stopped holding a charge. The speaker would beep loudly every 45mn or so to warn us the battery was dead, despite being turned off. super annoying.
Summary: The Braven 570 speaker is an excellent choice is you’re in the market for a new and great sounding Bluetooth speaker. Besides being a great speaker the Braven 570 is also a battery pack to keep your devices charged. The battery works fine to keep things charged but might be slower than what you’re accustomed to, it all depends on the devices you’re charging. The built-in battery is a nice feature to have but I personally don’t think I would ever use it.
Summary: I've had one of these for about a year. Use it about every day. Great for the bathroom when I shower. Sounds natural, especially when listening to talk shows. Like having the person in the room with you. I bought this one for a friend, they liked mine so much. Great battery life and decent range for my small apartment. Pairing my iphone and pc laptop is kinda wonky, but I can have two iphones paired no problem. Nice product.
