Sent to us too late to fully review, Braven's 570 ($100) is the company's least expensive portable speaker. Made from plastic rather than the company's trademark aluminum, and offered in white, purple, green, or red colors, 570 is effectively a downgraded version of the since-discontinued Braven 650, with a highly similar design featuring two front-firing active drivers and two rear-firing passive subwoofers. Audio quality is pretty good for the price -- clarity suffers noticeably throughout the spectrum, but both treble and bass are reasonably well represented. Ten hours of play time are promised for the speaker, which can also double as a low-capacity battery pack for iPhones and iPods thanks to an integrated outbound USB port. A micro-USB cable and 3.5mm audio cable are included in the package.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
