The Berlin Boombox – DIY music dock delivers modern sound in a retro package

Berlin Boombox

Some things are just too cool to ignore, and especially when they combine the things we love the most. The smooth tech of now, with the function and design of the past.  This clever product is one of those which manages to do this with a whole lot of style. Prepare to be transported elegantly back to the 80s.

The Berlin Boombox is a DIY portable mp3 sound system with a 1985 look and feel. The completely retro look is a corrugated cardboard cutout with electric snap on parts, so unlike your original 80s box, this one won’t break your shoulder while you’re strutting down the street in your Adidas and track suit.

There’s a step by step instruction guide included with the box which is all you need to start building this little bit of retro fun time. It features two speakers to give a full range of sound and connects to your music playing device (e.g. your phone) via the headphone jack, making it compatible with any mobile device. The Boombox also runs on 3 AA batteries which is a huge step up from the 10 D size batteries of yesterday.

Berlin Boombox Styles

The original is classic white but it also comes in a variety of other colors which include a blank case that you can color to make your own. The Berlin Boombox starts at 65 Euros.
