Portable Retro Boombox – turn your smartphone into an 80’s refugee and sparkle darling, sparkle…


There appears to be a concerted and determined attempt to bring the old boombox back into circulation, and we’re not really sure we’re happy about that. The idea seems to be to combine old retro with modern technology and benefit from the combo. Again, we’re doubtful whether this will have staying power, but we’re willing to listen to the believers.

This Portable Retro Boombox is one such product. Just plug your MP3 player or smartphone into the slot in the back and you’ll instantly get a disco light, Karaoke style sing-a-long dock which will make your music sound fantabulous in every way. Or something.


As well as all those headache inducing sound activated flashing LED lights, the product also features microphone input with echo control (for that perfect singing in the bath effect) and twin 4W speakers to blast out the tunes. You’ll use the mini-jack cable socket to plug the music player in. The unit also sports and FM/AM radio and works on batteries or mains power. Priced at €99.95.
