The BOOMBOT2 connects via Bluetooth to stream high fidelity audio from your audio device.

One device brings all of your favourite audio to life--music, podcasts, video, apps, games, and more.

Untether yourself from the constraints of component stereos, dedicated speakers, cables, and docking stations. BOOMBOT industrial design solves all of your mobile audio needs one small package that sounds much bigger than it is. Experience high fidelity sound in the palm of your hand with a mini speaker that incorporates revolutionary acoustic design. Use BOOMBOT as a portable speakerphone to amplify video conferencing. Adopt a BOOMBOT and give your life a soundtrack.

Boombot
Powerful driver and Bluetooth compatible.
Get BOOM for you buck

The BOOMBOT features a powerful 50mm driver and a tweeter for the higher frequencies. With their powers combined, you get loud, booming sound. The BOOMBOT2 can crank up to 83 decibels in Bluetooth mode. You can fill up a room with music or entertain your friends at the park.

Give yourself wireless freedom

The BOOMBOT2 is Bluetooth compatible. The BOOMBOT2 pairs with any Bluetooth compatible device including Smartphones, MP3 players, tablets and computers. With a 20-foot range you can move around freely with your music. Tangled cords are a thing of the past. (BOOMBOT2 still includes an auxiliary cord if you’d like to physically connect your BOOMBOT2.)

Make your home devices wireless

The BOOMBOT2 audio jack can switch from an input to an output. Say you have a nice speaker setup at home, but it’s not Bluetooth compatible. With your BOOMBOT2 paired to your audio device, you can plug your BOOMBOT2 into that speaker system using an auxiliary cord. In addition to being a speaker, the BOOMBOT2 now doubles as a Bluetooth receiver and channels your audio signal into your speaker system.

Boombot
Rechargeable and customisable.
Take your audio anywhere, anytime

BOOMBOTs are the original ultraportable speaker. The industrial design is built for life in motion, unlike many of the other portable speaker systems on the market. With a built-on clip, BOOMBOTs can easily strap onto your backpack, pocket or jacket. Whether you’re biking to work, walking your dog or hanging out at the beach, you’ll be able to take your music with you.

Custom-eyes your BOOMBOT

Collect additional custom eyes to mix and match to your own personal style, easy to twist and switch out.

Boombot
Water resistant and built to last.
Weather resistance for your adventure

Most electronics go into hibernation as soon as there is some precipitation in the air. BOOMBOTs on the other hand feature a water-resistant construction. When the rain (or snow) clouds open up for business, you can still enjoy high fidelity sound.

Built to last

BOOMBOTs feature a drop-tested ruggedized ABS shell. What does that mean? BOOMBOTs can take a beating. In the event that you somehow manage to break your BOOMBOT, don’t fret—all of our BOOMBOT2s come with a one-year “No Matter What” warranty.

The BOOMBOTIX story

BOOMBOTIX was founded on the creation of an ultraportable speaker designed as an alternative to headphones. The BOOMBOT was conceived by combining a Japanese vinyl toy, off-the-shelf speaker internals, and a walkie-talkie clip. It was originally developed for biking, and the founders quickly realised that this product integrated perfectly into their surf-skate-snow lifestyles as well. With a focus on great sound, ultra-portability and design, BOOMBOTIX speakers began turning heads on the streets of San Francisco and the local slopes of Lake Tahoe. After seeding the first batch to friends at action sport and bike shops in California, the original adopters embraced the brand and began to explore new ways to enjoy music while in motion.

Today, the BOOMBOTIX vision is true to its original roots: create a matrix of integrated hardware and software product to deliver the richest mobile audio experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply amazing. 24 Oct 2013
Style Name:GUNMETAL Gray
I originally purchased the BB2 when I came across a limited version of it on my favorite hip hop artists website. When I purchased it and got it home I was blown away by the sound that came out of it! I then wanted another for home use and to have the ability to connect both speakers so I bought the BB1. Man I was not let down. Highly recommended!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but... 24 May 2013
Style Name:GUNMETAL Gray|Verified Purchase
I have ordered it 2 weeks ago. Very excited, it looks nice and very durable. I started to play with it all the time at home mostly using my smartphone or my laptop. The sound quality is not awesome but pretty loud. The feature to plug another speaker with the audio out is a really good idea. I was plugging my stereo most of the time and get a pretty good experience.
After a few days I started to notice a constant whistle when no music was playing. Even worse when charging it. Sometimes the bluetooth connection wouldn't connect properly (looks connected but no sound).
Last night I listened to some music on it and went to bed. I woke up in the morning and tried to play music again. The device doesn't turn on anymore (no sound or light at all). I tried to charge it with different usb sources and different cables but no luck. It died with no reason.
Quite disapointed. I expected better for something supposed to be super resistant.
The noise when no music was getting more and more annoying too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight but great sound 3 April 2013
By Monty
Style Name:GUNMETAL Gray
I received one of these as an Easter gift and I have to say that I was a little bemused by it. After taking it out of the packaging I plugged it into my iPod Classic with the included cable and was very surprised by the sound and volume that it put out. I have also connected it to my laptop and via Bluetooth to my phone/tablet and there is a definite improvement in the sound that it gives off verses the rather tinny on board ones. Charging is a breeze, I used the supplied USB cable plugged into my PC and I have also used a USB plug socket (though one was not supplied) so pretty versatile. Concerning the styling I thought it looked a bit like a skull but I have read that others see it more as an elephant, all I can say is that it is rather unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic man 25 Jan 2013
Style Name:GUNMETAL Gray|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Wow this system is wicked man, well worth the steep price. Dont know about outdoors i bought it for inside the bedrooms man, but it is well loud and high quality. You can bluetooth link it or use a cable, which is nice man cause then you got options. The cable is special, it is retractable so it dont tangle, which is wicked in it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent speaker for outdoor use 17 Jan 2013
By M. Dale
Style Name:GUNMETAL Gray|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The BoomBot2 is a slightly weird looking beast. The design is certainly a bit marmite, but personally I think it looks quite interesting, or at least it does in grey. I'm not sure about some of the 'louder' colour schemes.

Anyway, design aside this is quite a capable speaker if you view it the context of its purpose. The box states "lifestyle compatible" and mentions bike, surf, skate and snow. What this means in reality is that the unit is ruggedised and water resistant - it's a speaker designed to be used outdoors and to take drops, knocks and scrapes without falling apart.

Feature-wise, the basic set of bluetooth speaker options are there:
- Bluetooth connectivity, obviously
- Line in so you don't have to use bluetooth
- Line out so you can chain it to other speakers (same socket as line in so you can't use both at the same time)
- USB charging
- Included line in/out cable
- Included USB charging cable (connects to a standard USB port on a computer/laptop)

However, there are a few niggles and missed opportunities here. The combined line in/line out is a bit of a limitation. Unlike many other bluetooth speakers there is no way to control the player you have connected to it - it's not unusual to long-press the volume up/down buttons on other speakers to get next/previous track functionality. In the same vein, there is no button to answer calls if you've got it connected to a mobile. The line in/out socket and the USB charging socket are fiddly to get to, covered by rather flimsy protective rubber clips, and are recessed in such a way that it's hard to connect a cable with a bulky plug housing.

By M. Williams TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Style Name:GUNMETAL Gray|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've used my Boombotix with my iPhone and iPad. For the right person I think it would be a good buy.

** Pros

Rugged - you can't poke the speaker through the rigid plastic shell

Extremely portable - no special case required, just stick it in your bag

Connects with and without wires (although look at the cons regarding Bluetooth pairing)

Loud - I'd describe the quality of sound as mid way between my iPad and a portable stereo

Enjoyable to use with music creation apps on the iPad - the cello sample on ThumbJam is nice and subtle but loud, and the electric guitar sample is fun to crank up loud too.

Battery life seemed good

** Cons

Mono - I love listening to stereo music so this is quite a big drawback for me.

Pairing over Bluetooth is a bit of a pain. Following the instructions, using the big button on the top I have spent longer than I would like trying to make it pair and re-pair with my iPhone and iPad. I imagined that this process would be a lot more straightforward and often found myself wondering why I was bothering.

** Summary

If you're one of those annoying people who play their mobile phone loud on the bus or train you would love this device. It gives you the kind of volume that will drive other passengers to distraction, and isn't tinny. It would be good to take to the beach or the park without worrying that it's going to get broken. But if you like high quality stereo sound you're looking in the wrong place.
