BRAVEN vs JBL in a BOOMBOX standoff!

We compare these two flagship products!

The less expensive Braven BRV-XXL/2 stacks up pretty well against the JBL counterpart.

At $489.99, its $60 less than the JBL Boombox. Both boast excellent waterproofing at IPX5 and IPX7, respectively, which means the Braven can be soaked by splashing but the JBL Boombox can be dropped into water up to a meter deep. While the XXL/2 can play for 20 hours straight, the Boombox can go for 24 - another four hours; however, the Braven pumps out a little more power at 100w (87w on the JBL) plus it boasts a dedicated sub, so the playtime could be acceptable. The JBL Boombox has a dedicated App, whereas the Braven is a stand alone product. Just unbox it and get going!

Braven is a pioneer in the rugged portable speaker market. They were first to wrap their speakers with durable materials and water resistant enclosures and they haven't forgotten their roots. Overall, for outdoors, we like that the Braven has 360° sound, making it a little better for use in open spaces because it doesn't matter where its placed. With more power and even an attached bottle opener, we love the way it parties!

We like the way the JBL sounds and find that its more suitable for the active lifestyle, as most of their products are marketed this way. In a gym, by the pool, the JBL boombox is the right speaker.

We still give points to the BRAVEN XXL though. We're impressed with its portability and would be more comfortable with it takiing a tumble off a tailgate than we would with the JBL Boombox. So since that is what these speakers are all about, points go to the BRAVEN.
