Example: My name is Lief and I’m a starving artist turned entrepreneur.  When I’m painting, headphone cords always get on my canvas and ruine my oil paintings.  I deserve the best portable speaker because I am trying to make art that captures an alternate reality.  I love the joy people get when they see my paintings.  By having the first Boombot REX, I can make the sickest paintings and share them with the world.

We are proud to announce the first official owner of the Boombot REX.  Scott Sanders served this country in the gulf war and was injured during active duty. He was stationed in the second armored cavalry regiment during the first gulf war.   He is a true hero to us and we would like to thank him for his courageous actions.


Ernesto: I need boombot because It was an anniversary gift to my girlfriend. No boombot, no sexy background music. No sexy background music, no sexytime. Please, pick me, so I can have my sexytime back.

Boombotix: We are sorry you are missing out on sexytime right now.  Rest assured, sexytime will be restored in just a couple of weeks.  

Matt: I would love to have my REX early because I have been cycling for months to work now, I have sold my car to continue my Education and working two jobs. I need some music to ride with to keep me motivated that things will get better. I have relied on speakerphone alone, but I can’t get pumped up!

Boombotix: We are glad you are pursuing further education and bike commuting to work.  You are a man of the future and we got mad respect for you.  

Robert: Hello, my name is Robert. I’m 21 years old and currently an active duty member of the Air Force. I pledged for an attic white unit and would like to have an early unit but not for myself, but for my supervisor. Yesterday he had his house broken into and his truck stolen while he was sleeping. He lost his music collection, speakers, and countless other items. He’s really helped me while I’ve been enlisted and I’d like to do something for him if possible. Thank you,

Boombotix: That really sucks Robert.  Sad story and we will do what we can to get your supervisor back on the music game.  Gotta give props to the vets first though!!

  1. My name is Matt. I am somewhat adventurous by nature, and this summer I am planning on stand-up paddleboarding the whole Columbia River. Being the largest river in the Pacific Northwest, and forth largest in the United States, the river stretches 1,243 miles. This will be the FIRST attempt for the entire Columbia River to be toured by SUP, and solo at that. With my start date being right after the first week of June, I deserve to have one of the first Boombot REX. Without the best portable speaker, how am I going to: (1) listen to some sweet beats while by myself, and keep myself pumped; (2) scare off hungry bears looking to om-nom-nom me; and (3) start sick dance parties by the shore under the stars? This trip is estimated to take at least 60 days. I am not trying to say I need to be the very first, but I do think I deserve to have one in hand before my departure. Without the Boombot REX, you can expect it to be a very quiet two+ months for me.

  2. I am a wedding photographer. When I’m shooting the getting ready shots, I use my iPhone to play music for the bride. They love it…but they always complain that it’s too quiet and always want me to turn it up. Sadly, the iPhone’s speaker sucks! I need the Rex so my brides can enjoy the music and we can rock out to some dope tunes while getting our photo on!

    I can keep my iPhone in my pocket, and clip the Rex to my bag while I run around with the bridal party. I know they’ll love the fact that I can bring awesome sounding music to the shoot. They’ll tell all their friends about the best photographer who has the best sound system on his shoulder, and then I’ll book a ton more weddings! 😀

  3. I use Siri for everything – I have severe short/long term memory problems (brain injuries from when I was in the military) so now I depend on Siri to remind me of everything and when an idea jumps in my head – I have to get it into reminders quick. Oh – and I need music – seriously – I LOVE MUSIC!!! And I can’t wear headphones all the time – and I’ve always wished real life had background music. And maybe now – I can get some background music for my life – my babies love to dance and my girlfriend loves to dance – so now – no matter where we are I’ll always have a beat to get all my girls dancing. Music = Happy = Smiling = Better Everything! — and I can’t concentrate on anything for very long – so the Rex will give me some freedom to move about and still stay wired into my Siri memory :). PICK ME! I already have some great ideas to customize my Rex… little arms and all. hahaha – SQUIRREL!!!

  4. Uhm… how do you know if we placed an order – ? I’m confused – So I’m posting again! hahahaha – I think its bed time now.

  5. Hi,

    i need the early Speaker because now its spring time in Germany. I’m a preeschool teacher and we stay every day outside in the forest. We’re listen to the birds in the morning houres and with the boombot rex we can check the birds we here with the voices on my device. The boombot rex is the perfect forsest 2.0 system for nature education. So my kids in the “waldkindergarten” (means kindergarten even outside in the forest) will be very happy to listen and learn with the boombot rex soon.

    Thx a lot

  6. My name is Scott and I am an American Army Veteran, disabled while serving on active duty during the First Gulf War. I am now unable to work due to my disabilities and spend my days, and most nights, trying to devise ways to stay busy. I have exactly 3 vices in my life – books, music and movies. Books and movies are my two main escapes from the everyday tedium of my thoughts. The pages of as good story will transport you too far off lands you never knew existed, and a movie done right will place you in the action. But music is my muse. In times of inspiration, I will write short stories or poetry, practice intermediate photography or draw out impossible to solve mazes. The reason I want the first Rex is to help me experience sound in a more pure way, and in return help me find the inspiration that I am so lacking on most days, since most portable devices are not much to talk about. Win or lose, we are taught to be grateful for what we have in life and to take nothing for granted. I thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this project.
