Boombotix is a small company passionate about music. Lief Storer and Chris McKleroy founded the company together and developed this first Boombot as an alternative to headphones for a bike ride to work. The unique design was conceived from a Japanese toy and you’ll have to take my word (for now) that these little rascals sound just as amazing as they look.
The sound quality and volume that come out of this little guy are impressive to say the least. If you pick up one of these speakers for yourself (or happen to win one ), prepare to enjoy your music, videos and whatever else you listen to with much higher volume and much better quality.
The rugged build, water resistance, retractable connection cable, and tough clip on the back of the Boombot make it the perfect companion for life on the go. Feel like blasting your personal soundtrack as you mosey down the street for all to hear? How about playing some tunes while you hike through the woods to keep up spirits and scare away wild animals? Pick up a Boombot and go nuts…just try to keep the tunes age and volume appropriate for your surroundings and for all of our sanity.
The Boombot 1 comes in 9 different unique flavors including 3 limited edition artist designs.
There are 3 buttons on top of each Boombot. One big one in the middle for power and two on either side for volume up and down.
I had the pleasure of trying out a BoomBot 2 which has everything the Boombot 1 has plus bluetooth connectivity. After testing it out for a while now, I absolutely love it. Everytime I fire it up I am impressed by the quality and volume that comes out of such a cute little munchkin.
The bluetooth connectivity is awesome and the battery life is great. I tried it out inside and out and found that the range is surprisingly close to the same whether I was in a confined area or not. I had to get at least 15-20 feet away in both cases before I started to lose the connection.
In short, I highly recommend any of the great products offered by Boombotix. You can pick up your own Boombot 1 or Boombot 2 directly from their website.

The Boombot REX is the latest and greatest offering from Boombotix. We mentioned them back in October and they are currently smack dab in the middle of a successful kickstarter campaign (over 200% funded) and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these new little monsters.
The REX line adds bluetooth speakerphone functionality, song skipping on the speaker, and even more power and bass bumpin.
Learn more about the Boombotix REX on their Kickstarter page. Join the funding party and reserve a REX of your own!
