Equipped with an all-direction subwoofer, the Ready Pro produces custom-tuned audio with beautiful highs and deep lows.

The Ready Pro is encased in a shockproof thermoplastic housing and armed with an IP68 certification, offering extensive protection.

Braven Ready Pro overview:

The Pro is Bluetooth Smart enabled which can be used with the Braven App.

The App includes custom EQ settings, remote power on and off for the speaker, button disable to stop people turning up and down the volume, perfect for a party setting or when listening to music with kids.
