Braven unveils Vibe audio system
Braven unveiled the Vibe, a portable distributed audio Bluetooth and Wi-Fi audio system, at this week's Consumer Electronics Show. It allows users to share music across multiple devices virtually anywhere from any wireless device.
The Braven Vibe System takes advantage of single streaming and sharing solutions across iOS, Android, and Windows devices and can support multiple audio streams concurrently. It creates a wireless sound network and allows users to establish speaker zones for customized audio streaming from just about anywhere.
The Vibe System utilizes Wi-fi and Bluetooth connectivity with an app that allows users to establish speaker groups under the same network, enabling customized audio listening such as classical music in the bedroom and kitchen, rock in the living room, and jazz in the dining room. The app is available at the Apple App Store.
The Braven Vibe System also gives users the ability to connect their existing Bluetooth speaker products to a wireless audio network, including legacy Braven Bluetooth speakers and existing audio products previously owned by the user. The system consists of: a Vibe Station, an all-in-one hub/speaker that pumps out sound while connecting the entire system to a wireless network and to your Bluetooth-enabled device; Vibe Replay, additional speakers that expands the Vibe system and are capable of doubling as portable Bluetooth speakers; Vibe Link, which allows users to integrate existing speakers as well as distributes audio to additional wireless speakers.
