Back in October, we took a look at the Braven 625s portable Bluetooth speaker, and found it worthy of recommendation. If you've had your eye on the 625s but were waiting for something easier on the wallet, you might want to check out the Braven 570, which is about to go on sale via QVC.
At a price of $180, we considered the 625s a good value for the money. The Braven 570 is going to sell for nearly half that at a price of $99.96. It has less battery life, but retains most of the features that we liked in the 625s, like hands-free and power bank functionality.
QVC is going to start selling the Braven 570 tomorrow, December 16. For more details, see the press release embedded down below.
