Braven today introduced the next iteration of its rugged Outdoor Series of Bluetooth speakers with a number of new models. Moreover, the fresh batch also include Bluetooth Smart technology to facilitate power, customization, control, and connectivity.

Known for their ability to withstand water, dust, and other elements, Braven’s speakers often employ aircraft-grade aluminum and other tough materials. Until today, the Outdoor lineup consisted of various BRV models that range from ultra portable to bigger-than-boombox proportions. As you’d expect, the price differs, going anywhere from about $99 up to around $350.

The new Ready line of speakers, as well as a refreshed BRV-XXL, continue on the same path. Prices are right about the same, however the speakers are smarter than in the past. Each of the new units are expected to arrive in the second quarter of the year.

Here’s a breakdown of the new models in Braven’s 2017 Outdoor Series of portable speakers.

As to what makes these speakers smarter than their predecessors, that revolves around the BRAVEN Smart App. Available for Android and iOS devices, it gives listeners more control over the sound experience. One can, for instance, remotely turn the speakers on and offor  adjust equalizer settings. Additionally, the Smart Lock features can be toggled to product buttons from accidental pressing or interruption.
