Engadget Summary

The Braven 650 is a sturdy, versatile, great-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker, and a worthy competitor to the gdgt Must-have Jawbone Jambox. It has a great set of useful features, including a speakerphone, USB charger for your mobile devices, and the ability to be daisy chained to other Bravens for extra power. It's slightly larger than the Jambox, but still highly portable, and is durable enough to go anywhere your music takes you.
