Big bass,

small size.

It's what every sound company says they deliver—but can't. At Brane, we don't need to say it. You can feel it—thanks to the biggest advance in sound driver tech in over 50 years.

Driver

Brane's Repel-Attract-Driver (R.A.D.) uses custom magnets to cancel internal air pressure forces that inhibit sub-bass in other portable speakers.

The result?
A tenfold increase in sub-bass sound and a hundredfold increase in sub-bass efficiency—increasing performance without increasing size or power consumption.
