What did we think?

Inside the box you’ll find the speaker, a tiny little micro USB charging cable, instruction booklet and a stand. Pairing the Braven 105 speaker with my phone was super easy. I turned on Bluetooth, it popped up in my device list on my phone and paired, taking no more than a few seconds to complete.

The speaker is idiot-proof and very intuitive to use with big rubbersied buttons on the side. There’s an elastic loop attached to the speaker which makes it easy to attach to things should you feel the need to. I prefer to use it with the supplied stand though (see the pic below) and whilst it’s all very well made and feels like a quality little bit of tech, I do find the stand a bit fiddly, so have taken to leaving it attached to the stand.

Audio in and micro USB sockets on the back of the speaker

On the back of the speaker there’s a flap which protects the micro USB and audio jack inputs. As with the bigger Braven 405 which we absolutely love, the sound quality is good, though with it’s diminished size and at this price point, the sound isn’t outstanding, but the sound is clear and impressive for its size.

This is a great little speaker with decent given it’s so small. I love the fact that’s its both rechargeable and waterproof, making it really handy for camping, and I love the stand that comes with it despite it being a little fiddly to get on and of it. If you’re looking for a good quality Bluetooth speaker for outdoor sports, camping and/or travel, then the Braven 105 is great buy!
