Premium water-resistant Braven 855s Bluetooth speaker packs some punch

 

The Braven 855s isn't cheap, but it's built like a brick (and weighs as much) and delivers decent sound.

The Braven 855s is ruggedly built, water-resistant, and sounds good for a portable wireless Bluetooth speaker. You can also pair up two speakers to amplify the sound or create stereo right/left speakers.

Expensive; a little bulky; can distort at higher volumes with certain tracks.

The Braven 855s is a bit overpriced, but it's built like a brick, delivers decent sound and has strong battery life.

At $300, the water resistant BRAVEN 855s Bluetooth speaker is expensive but well equipped. It has a 3.5mm input, can pair with a second BRAVEN for stereo, and can charge your wireless device..

Braven 855s Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

Very recently, we checked out the Braven 850 speaker, which intrigued us with its killer industrial design, punchy audio quality, and serious battery life. Strengthening its lineup, Braven also offers its 855s Portable Bluetooth Speaker, which...

Sturdy construction ; Water resistant property ; Lots of audio power out of this portable speaker ; Better than average battery life

Expensive for a portable Bluetooth speaker ; Some crackling at the highest volume setting ; Pretty heavy in weight

The Braven 855s is one of those bridge speakers, where it functions as both a portable speaker for better traveling, and a dedicated in-home one that’s meant to be stationary – that’s in part to its ear shattering volume output! For its size and all,...

Review: Braven 855s HD Wireless Speaker

 

Ok, ok, I already reviewed the Braven 850 recently here. The Braven 855s is just its weatherproofed sibling, everything else is the same.

I wouldn’t dunk the Braven 855s in a tub of water, though, or take it on a river crossing. While it is weatherproof, it isn’t waterproof.

Braven 850 and 855s Review: Great Wireless Sound... at a Price

 

We've reviewed a slew of speakers for use with mobile devices, but the Braven 850 and 855s Bluetooth battery-powered 20-watt speakers grabbed our attention like no other thanks to great sound and battery life, plus a unique trick. This pair of speakers...

We couldn’t find much to complain about with the Braven 850 and 855s speakers. Their large power bricks makes them less portable, but thanks to the battery the user can leave the power brick at home or in the office. The Braven 855s’s silicone wrapper...
