SOUNDBOKS: THE LOUDEST BATTERY-POWERED SPEAKER

$784,320

1,559

We wanted the SOUNDBOKS to work for any occasion, so we tested the design to withstand any extreme situation you can dream of. Our vision is for you to be able to create the experience of a concert or a festival anywhere, anytime. The SOUNDBOKS features a lightweight, but ultra durable design that helps ensure that the SOUNDBOKS always delivers - whether you’re at a wild tailgate or an all-night party at the beach.

Turn it UP, UP, UP - all the way to 11! The SOUNDBOKS combines high Sound Pressure Level (SPL) speaker units with our powerful SOUNDBOKS amplifier to blast sound levels of up to 119 decibels - louder than an average PA-system at a rock concert! Suffice to say, the SOUNDBOKS is street-party and rave ready.

The SOUNDBOKS’ classic flight case design combines durable plywood with high-quality aluminum parts to ensure a rugged design. You’ll never have to worry about whether or not your SOUNDBOKS can handle its environment - it’s rain, splash, shock and snow proof, and just waiting for your next move.

Ever tried to use a device only to find that the battery has died? Let’s be honest - it sucks. With the SOUNDBOKS, you’ll never have to stop partying. Our batteries are proven to provide 30 hours of sound in a single charge. Each SOUNDBOKS purchase comes with two batteries that are external and swappable. We've chosen a unique chemistry, named LiFePO4, that can deliver under any circumstances - from the freezing winters to the burning summers. And with a charging time of only 3 hours, you’ll never have to stop playing.

There’s a genius behind every industry-disrupting product, and the same goes for the SOUNDBOKS. Johnny Engberg is renowned in the online open-source audio community as “Saturnus,” and is responsible for our unique acoustics and amplifier. The SOUNDBOKS is the accumulation of 15 years of Johnny’s research, and utilizes a range of his brilliant design techniques. Johnny has worked collectively with Dutch amplifier specialist, Accusafe, responsible for developing some of the world’s most efficient amplifiers and highest-quality bluetooth modules.

The SOUNDBOKS is a wicked product on its own, but we’ve taken it one step further. We’ve developed a set of awesome accessories to enhance the experience for you. To add them to your SOUNDBOKS pledge, simply add the $ amount specified next to the accessory, and we'll add it to your order.

I.e. if you want the SOUNDBOKS reward for $499 and the SOUNDTRUCK for $79, you pledge $578. We'll contact you after the campaigns end, to coordinate your accessories.

SOUNDTRUCK - The SOUNDBOKS is surprisingly light, but there may be times when you’re traveling far, or want to easily carry an extra case of beer. That’s why we’ve made our own unique, click-on trolley system: the SOUNDTRUCK. Fit your speaker on in seconds when you’re on-the-go, and click-off when you’ve found your sweet spot.

MOBILEBOKS - What good is a speaker that lasts 30 hours if your phone dies after 3? Charge your phone up to 6 times on a single charge with our own high-quality MOBILEBOKS: a portable powerbank with a sleek aluminum design, that's built to last, just like the SOUNDBOKS.

VOICEBOKS - The world’s loudest battery-driven speaker only gets better when you add an awesome microphone - the VOICEBOKS. Connect the VOICEBOKS to your speaker in a flash, and you’re ready to cheer on your favorite sports team or bust out those karaoke skills you’ve been hiding.

At SOUNDBOKS, we believe product development is an art. We have a strong team, that is focused on creating projects in the intersection between pioneering technology, and awesome user experiences. The SOUNDBOKS has went through many iterations, until we finalized it. 

Another thing, that we treat with the utmost seriousness at SOUNDBOKS is manufacturing. We've screened several different production partners, visited all of our subcontractors, and ended up with a set of suppliers and partners, that we KNOW can deliver as promised. For our assembly, we've teamed up with Flextronics, a global EMS company who is known for manufacturing for companies such as Apple, Microsoft and Ford. We're creating the first batches of SOUNDBOKS in Sweden, so our Danish team can visit often and audit the production.

Christoffer, Jesper and Hjalte met in high school, and immediately bonded over their love of wicked sound and the parties it made possible. Driven by a passion for speaker design and great experience, the boys created SOUNDBOKS. Over the last several years, the team has built a range of outdoor sound systems, and has been featured in magazines such as VICE and EUROMAN. The founding team brought an all-new dimension to the product by teaming-up with sound technician extraordinaire, Johnny Engberg.

In the past year, the team has grown to more than 15 full-time employees, who all individually contribute to the SOUNDBOKS culture. Though the core team is still young, they’ve brought hardcore experience in the fields of design, production and logistics to ensure that they deliver on their promises to our customers. SOUNDBOKS’ cooperation with Flextronics is handled by Global Logistics Manager, Thor Mønsted, who brings decades of experience managing his own production firms, and handling logistics on a grand scale.

SOUNDBOKS combines industry experience with unique, innovative design, and has created the highest level of technology and performance to bring you the perfect speaker.

 At SOUNDBOKS, we believe in the hustle. With our first version, we went from finished product to shipping real products within just a few months - and we didn’t stop there. The last 8 months have been spent gathering feedback and improving our product until we reached full satisfaction.

Now, the SOUNDBOKS is finished, and we’re ready to bring it to you…


 

Thank you for reading all the way to the end. We hope that you’re just as excited about the SOUNDBOKS as we are, and that you’ll join us in throwing better (and louder) parties all around the world. We’re crazy about what we’ve made, and we’re honored to share it with the Kickstarter community. 

If you have any questions, or if we can assist you in any way, feel free to shoot an email to our CEO, Jesper - jt@soundboks.com, and he’ll get right back to you.

Really crazy about SOUNDBOKS? We’re always looking to add brilliant minds to our team - if you're the one, shoot us an email at jobs@soundboks.com.

Wir wollten einen Speaker bauen, der jedem Anlass standhält – deshalb haben wir die SOUNDBOKS in jeder erdenklich extremen Situation getestet. Überall, zu jeder Zeit! Mit ihrem leichten und dennoch unglaublich robusten Design, liefert die SOUNDBOKS immer - egal ob im Regen beim Festival oder bei der Party am Strand.

Dreh auf – bis 11! Die SOUNDBOKS kombiniert starke Lautsprechereinheiten mit hohen Schalldruckpegel (SPL) mit unserem mächtigen Verstärker der bis zu 119 Dezibel erreicht. Das ist lauter als die durchschnittliche Musikanlage auf einem Rockkonzert! Überflüssig zu erwähnen, dass die SOUNDBOKS jeder Straßenparty und jedem Rave standhält.

Das klassische Flightcase-Design kombiniert stabiles Holz mit hochwertigen Aluminiumteilen und macht die SOUNDBOKS extrem robust. Keine Sorge, egal bei welchen Umständen – sie ist regen-, spritz-, stoß- und schneesicher.

Schon einmal versucht dein Gerät zu benutzen nur um zu merken, dass der Akku leer ist – Ätzend! Mit der SOUNDBOKS ist das Problem Vergangenheit. Unser Akku liefert dir 30 Stunden Soundgenuss am Stück. Jede SOUNDBOKS kommt mit zwei austauschbaren Akkus. Wir haben uns für die einzigartige LiFePO4 Akkutechnologie entschieden, die unter jeden Umständen abliefert – vom eiskalten Winter zum brennend heißen Sommer. Mit der Akkuladezeit von nur 3 Stunden hört die Party niemals auf.

Hinter jedem bahnbrechenden Produkt steckt ein Genie. Das gilt auch für SOUNDBOKS. Johnny Engberg, in der online Audio-Community bekannt als „Saturnus“, ist verantwortlich für unseren einzigartigen Verstärker und Sound. Die SOUNDBOKS ist das Ergebnis Johnny’s 15-jähriger Erfahrung und seiner diversen Sounddesigntechniken. Johnny arbeitete mit vielen erfahrenen Verstärker-Spezialisten (Accusafe) zusammen und war für die Entwicklung der weltweit effizientesten Verstärker verantwortlich – zudem für Bluetooth-Module, die zu den besten der Welt gehören.

Die SOUNDBOKS allein sprengt schon alle Grenzen. Allerdings sind wir noch einen Schritt weiter gegangen und haben verschiedene Zubehörteile entwickelt, um das SOUNDBOKS Erlebnis zu perfektionieren. Um dein Investment durch diese zu erweitern, musst du einfach nur den angezeigten Betrag deines Wunschzubehörs hinzufügen und wir kümmern uns um den Rest.

Ein Beispiel: Wenn du eine SOUNDBOKS für 499$ kaufst und einen SOUNDTRUCK für 79$, gibst du einfach 578$ an. Wir werden dich gleich nach der Kampagne kontaktieren um die Lieferung deines Zubehörs zu koordinieren.

SOUNDTRUCK - Die SOUNDBOKS ist überraschend leicht. Allerdings gibt es bestimmt Situationen in denen es entspannter ist, sie nicht zu tragen. Dafür haben wir den speziell angepassten SOUNDTRUCK entwickelt, der dich mit einem Klick bereit macht auch längere Strecken hinter dir zu lassen.

MOBILEBOKS - Was bringt dir ein Speaker der 30 Stunden hält, wenn dein Handy nach 3 Stunden leer ist? Die elegante MOBILEBOKS lädt dein Handy bis zu 6 mal wieder auf. Die MOBILEBOKS ist eine mobile Powerbank in elegantem Aluminium Design – robust wie die SOUNDBOKS.

VOICEBOKS - Der weltweit lauteste, akkubetriebene Speaker kann nur noch besser werden, wenn man das weltweit lauteste akkubetriebene Mikrofon am Start hat. Einfach den Adapter einstecken und der Welt deine Karaoke-Skills zeigen, dein Team anfeuern oder eine kleine Freestyle-Session starten.

Bei SOUNDBOKS sind wir überzeugt: Produktentwicklung ist eine Kunst. Wir haben ein starkes Team und brennen dafür Projekte umzusetzen, die bahnbrechende Technologie und atemberaubende Erfahrung für Nutzer vereinen. Die SOUNDBOKS haben wir bis ins letzte Detail perfektioniert.

Einen weiteren besonderen Fokus bei SOUNDBOKS legen wir auf die Produktion. Wir haben viele verschiedene Produktionspartner in Betracht gezogen, haben alle unsere Zulieferer persönlich besucht und wir wissen, dass diese wie vereinbart liefern könnnen. Für unsere Produktion kooperieren wir mit Flextronics, einer globalen EMS Firma, die auch für Marken wie Apple, Microsoft und Ford produziert. Die ersten Einheiten lassen wir in Schweden produzieren, so kann unser dänisches Team blitzschnell persönlich vor Ort sein und die Produktion begutachten.

Bei SOUNDBOKS glauben wir an Erfolg durch Ehrgeiz und Leidenschaft. Mit der ersten Version der SOUNDBOKS kamen wir schnell vom ersten Prototypen zu ersten Auslieferungen – innerhalb von nur wenigen Monaten! Diese Arbeitsmoral werden wir beibehalten. Die letzten 8 Monate haben wir genutzt um das Feedback und weitere Entwicklungen an der SOUNDBOKS umzusetzen und sie noch besser zu machen – bis wir unseren hohen Ansprüchen gerecht wurden. 

SOUNDBOKS ist bereit – jetzt wir wollen die Erfahrung mit euch teilen.


Danke, dass du alles bis zum Ende gelesen hast. Wir hoffen du bist genauso begeistert von der SOUNDBOKS wie wir es sind. Wir würden uns freuen, wenn du uns auf unserer Mission, auf der ganzen Welt, lautere und bessere Parties zu schmeißen, begleitest. Wir sind superstolz auf das, was wir erschaffen haben und wollen es unbedingt mit der Kickstarter-Community teilen.

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing a product is a fine art. We have already developed and tested version 1.0, which we shipped to more than 400 customers. We have listened to their feedback and come up with a superior design. Furthermore, we’ve already established connections with every single supplier, visited them several times. On top of that, we have locked down agreements with EMS partner Flextronics, where we have already made the first test-production runs and had great results. Lastly, we have already commenced production on the first 800 units to be given to our backers as soon as possible. We stand behind how amazing this product is, and we want you to have it this summer, only one month after our campaign ends for the first units. Although we can’t promise a risk free start, we have done everything in our power to make sure we can deliver your SOUNDBOKS to you at the promised time - so you can rock on.
