If I was looking for rugged portable speakers I would certainly take a good look at the new Braven 855s with is water and shock resistant but it’s also wireless over Bluetooth and it has a battery life of about 20 hours which is very good. The 855s also has the ability to charge other devices, so it’s a speaker and a portable battery. The 855s is rather large at ten inches long and four inches high, but I think that means it should be nice and loud. The only downside I can think of is the price, at about $300 it’s a bit out of my price range surely, especially for a speaker, still though if you need something like this it seems to be one of the best out there, so it might be worth the price in the end…
BRAVEN announces the immediate availability of the BRAVEN 855s, the biggest rugged BRAVEN yet. The 855s comes encased in a shock-absorbing water-resistant exterior, making it the perfect high-fidelity wireless speaker for sport, travel, around the house, and outdoor experiences.

Designed for the adventurer, the 855s is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, has a brute looking grill and is able to charge mobile devices including cameras, smartphones, even tablets. Similar to the BRAVEN 850, the 855s can also wirelessly daisy chain with a second 855s or 850 speaker for a true left and right wireless stereo experience.
To produce BRAVEN’s signature powerful and rich sound, the BRAVEN 855s uses a combination of class-leading extended-range aluminum cone drivers, dual passive radiators and a digitally enhanced audio based on DTS Audio’s SRS WOW technology.
