Boombotix Releases the Chronic Edition


The Greenhouse effect

I’m happy to announce a limited edition Bot we’ve been working on since this morning over a bowl of cereal.  I would love to tell you what kind of cereal, but I totally don’t want us to get sued.  Let’s just call it ‘Raptain Runch’ and leave it at that.

Boombot2+ Launches in Microsoft + T-Mobile Nationwide


Its one thing to hit up your homie at the local bike shop and get them to help you out with some retail placement. It’s another thing to land a national retailer for some shelf space. This winter we are launching the new Boombot2+ in our first real nationwide retail deals with T-Mobile and Microsoft retail. Last week we headed to the Microsoft store in San Francisco’s Westfield mall to check it out. We found a small shelf filled with only a select few wireless speakers including the Jawbone Jambox, JBL Charge, and the new Boombotix Boombot2+.  It was an honor and a momentous occasion worthy of popping champagne.

The challenge of getting our product on shelves is a great feat to rejoice. At the same time, we realize that our brand’s success depends on our ability to drive sell-through just as much as the sell-in.  The staff didn’t know anything about our product when we asked them. With a product like ours, staff can make all the difference in the engagement with consumers. How does one educate hundreds of staff across the country on a shoestring budget? We’ll find out.


about the new boombot2+

The new Boombot2+ on the surface doesn’t look look particularly different from the original Boombot line. Pull up the connector covers at the rear and you will find the charging port now modified to a micro USB. When you fire up the new Boombot2+, you will hear the heartbeat of the speaker coming to life. When you pair up with your mobile device, the days of entering pin numbers is behind us; Simply tap on the device in your Bluetooth Setup menu and you should connect automatically.


The control interface on the new Boombot2+ is really similar to the Boombot REX. The center button now controls play/pause as well as answering phone calls. Press and hold the center button to access Siri/Voice control. Where the tweeter used to be on the small eye, we’ve replaced it with a microphone.

When you turn up the new Boombot2+, you’ll find that we’ve done some EQ work to completely eliminate distortion at the higher volumes. While the Boombot2+ doesn’t have a passive radiator, the single 50mm driver actually delivers a surprising amount of bass with uncompromising mids.

We’ve added three new colors to the lineup including BlackOut, WhiteOut, and the Limited Edition DelHiero Burlap. The Boombot2+ is currently available exclusively at Microsoft and T-Mobile and in most Boombotix authorized retailers by mid November.
