Boombotix is a San Francisco based venture that extends the capability of mobile devices through intelligent speaker design. They manufacture and distribute a line of speakers called Boombots with an emphasis on refined industrial design and technology optimized for the active lifestyle. Our key strengths lie in nano acoustics, wireless tech, and innovative eCommerce. The Boombot REX is currently being developed to incorporate interactive connectivity platforms with mobile apps to expand into applications including Siri, 2-way, Google Now, location based services, and more. Boombotix devices offer a ubiquitous solution to stay connected in motion and share your media with the world.
The Boombot was crafted in 2010 as an alternative to headphones. The founder conceived the idea while bike commuting to work. Soon after, the product was seeded into the active lifestyles of surf skate and snow communities where the utility of the product was fully realized. Since launch, the company has grown distribution into over 25 countries with retailers including REI, Best Buy, and Amazon. The product is sold in over 270 retailers nationwide spreading across markets from CE/mobile, cycle, academic, and gift.
The crew has crafted a strategy and product roadmap to penetrate the 4-billion dollar audio market in the next three years. The company is currently pursuing breakthroughs in wireless streaming audio to catapult them into being a dominant player in the space.
