Many have tried and many have failed to resurrect the glorious days of the boombox, the shoulder worn music machine which terrorized whole countries for those years in the 80s. But now there’s a new pretender to the throne, and it’s a German claim this time. The Teufel BOOMSTER is not yep daddy’s boombox, oh no sire.
For one thing, this product actually comes with some pretty impressive specs. It features a sub-woofer, mid-range and tweeter speakers pushing out a total of 10W power (18W bass), which means it’s going to be loud. It also sports wireless NFC tech, so you can get your NFC compatible phone hooked up in an instant, and not only that, it can handle Bluetooth aptX signals, which means CD quality audio from your phone to your ears. Nice.
Just in case you were thinking that it’s not a real boombox because it needs a power plug, you’re wrong. Not only does it come with an integrated 4400mAh Lithium Ion battery pack which will give you 16 hours playback, but if you run out of charge you can drop in some standard AA batteries to keep the beat going on.
There’s also a 3 channel FM radio, an internal microphone for handsfree calls via your phone, and aux in and USB charging ports to keep things humming along nicely. We’re thinking this is a thing of beauty and delight, although you’ll need to find £249.99 in order to enjoy the riches on offer. Yeah baby!
