With its sleek styling and double act as a portable USB charger, there's plenty to like about Braven's line of Bluetooth speakers. Indeed, we listed the 625 in our back to school guide earlier this year as an alternative to the pricier Jambox. But if you were hoping to snag something even cheaper, you might want to check out the Braven 570, which is set to debut this Sunday on QVC for $100. Similar in looks with its Six Series brethren, the tiny music machine has six watts of power and a slightly lower capacity 1,200mAh battery -- the previous models were 1,700mAh and up -- all wrapped in an "impact-resistant" material. QVC will be offering the Braven 570 in Lunar Black, Arctic White, Fiji Green, Rio Purple, Monaco Blue and Sahara Red. But if you'd rather subject yourself to mall crowds or prefer the Zen-like experience of online shopping, you can get the retail version in black or white this coming January for $130 each. If you decide to go the QVC route, just don't get suckered in by overpriced celebrity steak knives, okay?
BRAVEN 570 SET TO DEBUT ON QVC
Provo, Utah – December 14, 2012 – BRAVEN has announced that it will offer the brand new BRAVEN 570, a colorful Bluetooth speaker with a built-in power bank that can charge a smartphone in an emergency. This event marks the debut of the BRAVEN 570 speaker, adding to its growing portable speaker line. Joining its counterparts in BRAVEN's Six Series, this speaker is small, lightweight, and pairs with any Bluetooth-equipped Android or Apple smartphone to provide incredible sound. The BRAVEN 570 speakers will be available in Lunar Black, Arctic White, Fiji Green, Rio Purple, Monaco Blue, and Sahara Red.
Aimed at the cost-conscious music lover, the colorful 570 offers 10 hours of play time, allowing users to jam to their music or blast their mobile games from virtually anywhere. The speaker connects via Bluetooth up to 33 feet away and has six watts of power encased in an impact-resistant polymer exterior. Providing the same industry-leading sound BRAVEN is known for, the new speaker also has the brand's signature charging ability. With a 1200mAh battery power bank, users can charge their phones via USB while they stream or use the speaker as a back-up power source on the go. An internal microphone also provides speakerphone functionality.
"We designed the 570 to appeal to a different audience than we've ever reached before," explains BRAVEN CEO Warren Osborn. "With the bright, colorful options and new exterior, the 570 is an important part of expanding our line to offer a high-quality BRAVEN Bluetooth speaker that matches any style, need, or cost."
Bundled with a power adapter, the BRAVEN 570 has a value of $129.99, QVC will offer the 570 speakers at an exceptional value price of $99.96 on December 16th. The speakers will be delivered to customers by Christmas. For those who miss this opportunity, the black and white editions will be available in stores in January 2013 at regular price.
