The BRAVEN 105 Is a Small Speaker That’s Built to Go Places

Over the past few years, we’ve reviewed a number of speakers from BRAVEN. INCIPIO’s acquisition of the brand clearly hasn’t slowed the pace of development. If anything, the exact opposite has happened, and there are a host of new products being rolled out. The BRAVEN 105 is the first of three we’ll be looking at in this review series.

Your home can never truly be complete without a great speaker, and there’s one in particular out there that won’t take up much space, but it will certainly fill a room!

Chant Sport from House of Marley Brings Big Sound

Crisp, clean audio is something I love and demand while listening to my favorite tunes. The new era of Bluetooth connected audio devices not only makes us wireless, but they can also sound pretty good. I recently had the opportunity to review the Chant Sport from House of Marley. The speaker costs $89.99 and doesn’t disappoint. Let’s take a look! 


The FUGOO Tough XL Is a Durable Speaker with Massive Sound

A few months ago we had the pleasure of reviewing the FUGOO Style XL, which we touted as a great speaker for both outdoors as well as an indoor casual Bluetooth speaker for everyone. So when we received the Tough XL by FUGOO, we know that it would be just as great the second time around!


VIZIO Announces Crave Multi-Room WiFi Speakers

I’m finishing up a review of VIZIO M-Series display. It’s an amazing Ultra HD display with Google Cast built in. I’ve been looking at VIZIO sound bars to add to it and was psyched to get word that VIZIO is also bringing some WiFi speakers to market in the form of the all-new VIZIO SmartCast Crave Pro and 360 Speaker.


VAVA Voom 20 Portable Speaker Review

It seems like everyone has a cylindrical portable speaker for sale, so at first glance, the VAVA Voom 20 may seem like a me-too product. But once you check out the features — and see the price — it might just win you over.




JBL Charge 3 Offers Kick-Ass Waterproof Sound with Power to Go

JBL describes the JBL Charge 3 as a “waterproof portable Bluetooth speaker with a high-capacity battery to charge your portable devices.” Available in black, blue, grey, red and teal, the speaker puts out serious sound, can go pretty much anywhere you want to go and doubles as an external battery for your smartphone. At $149.95 it’s a bargain.


With the JBL CLIP 2, Summer Just Got a New BFF

We are fans of JBL audio products and the new JBL Clip 2 is no exception. The small Bluetooth speaker packs a punch, but that’s just the beginning. It gets great battery life, doubles as a speakerphone, has an integrated carabiner clip, and for good measure is waterproof. And with a price under $60, it’s a steal! The speaker is…


Ultimate Ears Rolls Out the UE ROLL 2

“Designed to take your music wherever, whenever, UE ROLL 2 is the perfect musical companion for your next adventure.” That’s how Ultimate Ears describes the new UE Roll 2 Bluetooth Speaker. I describe it as a worthy update to one of my favorite portable Bluetooth speakers. It offers all-around improvements AND is under $100! The UE Roll is a magnificent…


Libratone ZIPP, Is It Worth the Extra $50 Over the ZIPP MINI?

We recently took a look at the new Libratone ZIPP MINI. I was impressed with the design, the features and, especially, the sound. The ZIPP MINI is, as the name suggests, the smaller version of the Libratone ZIPP. That begs the question, what do you get for the extra $50 you’ll pay for the regular ZIPP?



The Mars Speaker Levitates, But Is The Sound Quality Out of This World?

We’ve reviewed many Bluetooth speakers on the market, but none quite like the Mars Levitating Bluetooth Speaker, and that is actually a good thing. Created by Crazybaby, the Mars speaker is the world’s first and only levitating speaker that not only looks cool, but it’s pretty damn impressive in terms of audio quality as well. Originally an Indiegogo project that was successfully…




Jam Audio’s Alloy Speaker is Super Portable, Just Leave The Cable at Home

The Jam Alloy Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is a marvelous speaker. It might be little, but it packs a big punch, all the while being affordable. Probably one of the more cooler speakers I’ve seen in a while, the Jam Alloy is one of the more simpler models on the market, leaving just three buttons on the top portion of the…



The Fluance Fi70 Three-Way Wireless High Fidelity Music System: Incomparable Audio

While smaller speakers might work well in smaller spaces, sometimes you need a bigger speaker system that can fill a larger room with music; that’s where the new Fluance Fi70 speaker will shine. Available in bamboo, black ash, or walnut finishes, the Fi70 has dual 8” woofers, 5” woven glass fiber midrange drivers and 1” neodymium tweeters.
