Braven Stryde 360 Waterproof Speaker – Cheap, Affordable and Convenient Entertainment
I’ve had my fair share of Bluetooth speakers, but nothing comes close to Braven Stryde 360 Waterproof Speaker. It is one of the latest company products, it’s damn right easily affordable and it is waterproof. Well, I already mentioned that earlier in the first opening statement, but by “waterproof”, I don’t mean that this thing is like those shoddy portable speakers which can only withstand an accidental splash or few droplets.
On the contrary, you can submerge this Bluetooth speaker completely in the water, and it’ll still keep playing. Ever heard the sound of a water drenched speaker before? It’s different. Depending on the music notes, it will turn out to be very pleasing. It is sort of like a funnel/ pipe effect, except for the fact that you also get to see water droplets jumping up and down to the tune of bass and treble, which is a marvel to see.
Good Stuff about Braven Stryde 360 Waterproof Speaker
On the plus side, you can take Braven Stryde 360 Waterproof Speaker anywhere; anytime – so as long as the battery life permits it. As far as cost goes, it is not that expensive since the ballpark figure is somewhere around $100 or so. But on the same note, we have all seen a lot of water resistant portable speakers that are somewhat affordable, but don’t work as advertised.
To best explain this scenario, Braven Stryde Waterproof Speaker is IP67 certified. It means that this speaker will keep on playing underwater for well over an hour without the slightest hint of causing any damage etc. to the inner mechanism. I reckon since you will be taking it out on your outside trips, it can come in handy during beach rallies, camping, traveling – so on and so forth.
360 Acoustics: The speaker features magnificent 360⁰ acoustics. It basically means that you get to hear the sound loud and clear in a small to medium sized room.
Ergonomics: Braven Stryde 360 Waterproof Speaker has a convenient cylindrical shape. If you are in a car, you can set this thing up vertically in a cup holder, on a bike or anything which supports cup shaped structure.
Dedicated Voice Activated Features: The coolest array of features comes in the form of dedicated voice activated functions. It is a slight step towards next gen technology as you can command the speaker to perform a number of functions. Braven Stryde Waterproof Speaker is also programmed to support iPhone Voice Commands; it doesn’t get any better than this.
Passive Bass Radiators? Yeah, this is more of a hardware thingy. Braven Stryde 360 houses two bass emitters (* one at each end of the cylindrical structure) for maximum bass effect. For those who like their music heavy on the bass stuff, they’re going to love the speaker’s performance.
Other Cool Things to Know About Braven Stryde Waterproof Speaker?
The battery life for a 2500mAh charging capacity is overwhelmingly impressive. This speaker can keep on playing nonstop for over 11 hours – i.e. if it’s battery is fully charged. You can also receive, make and drop calls from the convenience of voice operated commands. So, here’s a new mode which is unlikely for normal BT entertainment speakers.
More importantly, this is a low maintenance speaker. If doesn’t get dirty easily, and even if it does, you can clean in with a cloth soaked in soap water. Or how about submerging the entire thing in water for a rather thorough cleaning experience?
Last but not the least, Braven Stryde 360 Waterproof Speaker is best played when placed horizontally or vertically. It does not have a lanyard support, which is a bit of a setback, but you can carry it around through other EDC portables etc. For $100, the company has definitely introduced a slew of features that make this product too hard to resist.
