Braven makes some of the best waterproof Bluetooth speakers on the market, and we have to say that their bluetooth earbuds are following suit.

And third, if you want that extra level of alertness you can select “ambient audio awareness” to get a nice mix of the sounds around you. Top that off with custom EQ settings and you have a great setup to please any music lover on the go.

They’re waterproof with an anti-microbial inside and have a comfy EVA compression midsole so you can go exploring all day long.
