Braven 405 & Braven BRV-1 HD Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Comparison

Looking for a wireless Bluetooth speaker with waterproof features but still confused which one to get? So stay tuned as we’re going to review the best waterproof speakers from Braven. Both have the same price, IPX7 waterproof,  wireless Bluetooth speaker but which stands out? Let’s check it out on our comparison below!

Braven BRV-1 HD Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Braven BRV-1 HD Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

The speaker from BRV-1 HD Wireless Bluetooth Speaker feels lightweight but strong, and you’ll get all the requirement you need for a Bluetooth speaker. The BRV-1 gives 12 hours of music where you can bring it anywhere from the backcountry, rock faces, skate parks, virgin powder downhills, rafting rapids, or even the beach.

The speaker is certified with an IPX7 waterproof rating so it’s protected from rainfall, splashing and can be fully submerged in water up to one metre deep for 30 minutes. And if your smartphone battery runs low, just recharge it using the BRV-1's built-in 1400mAh power bank. As simple as that right? But there’s also the downside which I think the bass could be a bit better represented.

Braven 405 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Braven 405 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

The Braven 405 can rock all day with Braven's proprietary Bass Optimization technology. This speaker is made from strong, durable plastic, build in kickstand that you can use as a belt clip with the size of a smartphone and comes with 7 multiple colour options. The speaker can keep your mobile phone charged, and the noise-canceling microphone enables hands-free speakerphone calls too.

The best thing about this speaker from Braven 405 is it gives you full-time 24 hour play time anywhere you love to go or even take it for a swim since it has the IPX7 certified waterproof and you can use it as an emergency battery. The downside is the Bluetooth coverage range is weak. So if you live in a maze of multiple rooms, you’ll find your music will be cut out once in a while.
