2nd July 2012 - Meet the BRAVEN Six Series - premium Bluetooth wireless speakers with a key difference to rivals: thanks to their high-capacity power banks, BRAVENs can charge any smartphone as well as play its music. So you'll never run out of mobile battery - or great sound - anywhere you need it.
The BRAVEN Six Series' talents don't end there: a high-grade integrated duplex microphone means they can also function as a speakerphone - ideal for clearer Skype and FaceTime calls.
From their custom-designed speaker drivers to optimised amplification, the BRAVEN Six Series use high-quality engineering to deliver superior sound - boosted further by aptX Bluetooth audio support. They perform brilliantly at any volume, go loud without distortion, and you can daisy chain two or more BRAVENs together for an even bigger sound.
BRAVEN speakers take seconds to wirelessly pair with any Bluetooth-compatible source, including smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. From your own music, movies and games to streaming services such as Spotify, it sounds bigger and better through a BRAVEN.
When your mobile phone battery runs low, simply plug it into the standard USB socket on the side of a BRAVEN Six Series speaker and watch it recharge - even while your music plays on. No more toting around bulky mains chargers and adapters on your travels. Save yet more luggage space by choosing from the selection of international mains plugs the BRAVEN comes packed with.
