Crane L.wrote a review of Braven 650 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker on April 20, 2013
I did a side by side comparison of this speaker with the Soundmatters FoxLv2 Platinum, and this speaker is better. The June 2012 Sound & Vision magazine review of this speaker is accurate. It sounds great, is well built and will charge your phone. Excellent speakerphone. No instruction manual, so read the online manual at Braven.com to learn how to make the volume go up and down. Plays loud and clear. If you are looking for a stylish audiophile small bluetooth speaker, this is it. Backcountry was a good buying experience. I will shop with them again.
