So what i have found out with my Braven BRV is that the sound quality and volume is affected by which device its connected too. For instance i use Android and my buddy runs iphone so we compared both on my device to see if any difference......well the difference was not even comparable my Android phone gave a MUCH LOUDER sound not to mention more crisp even at max volumes! His iphone was no comparison so if your not a believer then all i gotta say is try it before your comment! It will surprise you! Praise the Android device!!!
