It's light weight and compact at 4.75 x 3.25 x 2.25 inches, able to fit in the palm of a hand, and its shockproof exterior keeps it safe from drops and dings. It has an IPX7 waterproof rating, so it's going to survive rain and splashes. It can be fully submersed in water up to a meter deep for 30 minutes.
The BRV-1's battery will last for 12 hours of continuous audio play and it comes equipped with a 1,400 mAh powerbank that can give an iPhone or iPad a little more juice. There's a built-in noise-canceling microphone and speakerphone and it has a 33 foot wireless range when connected to an iPhone or iPad via Bluetooth.
