      I have used and enjoyed my Boombox Rex since the day I received it. I liked it so much that when I got a chance to buy another (cheap with ugly design) I jumped at it and gave it to an appreciative brother for xmas.

      Recently I received a coupon in an email offering 2 Greatful Dead themed speakers, one a Rex, and one a Pro, for $50. Great deal! So I took advantage of it. Then I looked at my credit card bill - I was overcharged $10 (well, $9.98 to be exact). I wrote Boombotix about it, and they replied (read in Jon Lovitz' best "yeah, that's the ticket" voice) "oh, that was shipping." When I explained there was no shipping listed on the order, they replied "yeah, that was shipping."

      Even though $10 for shipping might not be horrendous, I may bring this one to my credit card company as the charge varied from the coupon. Regardless, family members who might be able to use bluetooth speakers will not be getting Boombotix devices this xmas.

      Hi, why can't I use the lifetime kickstarter discount code anymore?

      I think it's hilarious how selling out is the new "keeping it real". Scented speakers? Wtf? Have fun with that... I'll enjoy my original Boombot Rex, thanks. Enjoy your millions, the least you could do is give something back to all your faithful backers.

      My USB port on failed on November 8th. I can no longer use mine. Can I exchange it?

    6. Daniniski on October 14, 2013

      My usb lead has stopped working! It's pretty stiff plastic coating it so I'm not surprised it's failed.

    7. Daniniski on September 17, 2013

      Hey, just wanted to say mine is being used almost everyday for all sorts of things. Radio, music, films on the ipad, tv and it's still going strong and sounded great. The clip split up top after it'd been in the sun, but it's still working fine for clipping onto me. Really great kickstarter.

    8. Boombotix 4-time creator on July 22, 2013

      @bryan prices for the Boombot REX in retail is currently $120. The Boombot REX is hot in retail, all you amazing early adopters of the product got the best deal out of anyone.

      @DJ Mittens, we wish every unit off the line could be perfect, but since this statistic is near impossible, we're glad to make sure no unit gets left behind. Thanks for the kind words!

      Cheers all, hope you are sharing the fun with friends. The Tuffskin tool is complete and production is ramping up for these silicone bumpers, so look forward to a new, ultra-rad accessory!

    9. Bryan Weiss on July 22, 2013

      Just saw your ad zillow... I see I raised prices to 120 for the black one

    10. DJ Mittens on July 17, 2013

      Got my REX a few weeks ago - and unfortunately for me wasn't working as the battery couldn't keep a charge. Contacted Support - they were prompt with a response and great to deal with. I sent my unit back - they covered my shipping charge (international shipping charge too) and fixed the unit. Kept me informed with emails the entire time too. Got it back in the mail today and good as new! Took about three weeks roughly in my case for the turnaround. I thought that was pretty reasonable. Great little speaker and a great company to deal with. Really impressed with support especially during a time of a massive product launch like this. Thanks guys for the terrific little speaker and service.

    11. Kevin Yang on July 17, 2013

      hello, I got no answer there is not change I have no Rex and the tracking no.

    12. Bryan Weiss on July 16, 2013

      Cords... Lost my charger... Can I use any micro USB cord? Thanks

    13. Jonah Sun on July 16, 2013

      Just started using my Boombotix - finally a Kickstarter product that actually delivered on time and exceeded expectations - it rocks. Used it to present videos on my iPad to clients in a noisy cafe and it performed fabulously.

    14. David Di Troia on July 16, 2013

      Beyond helping circulate this campaign, we'd be happy to set all bike messengers up with a proform code on all Boombotix product. Use the discount code: factoryteam and receive 50% off any product in our online store.

    15. Daniniski on July 15, 2013

      Damn. My clip broke, I was being careful too. I think it might weaken in the heat as it was sat in the sun and just went *pop* with the lightest of touches. Still sounds great though.

    16. Matt Acosta on July 14, 2013

      Anybody have the 50% off code from the Limited Edition e-mail?

      First, excuse me for my poor english, I'm french.
      I just want to say I've just received my boombox (thanks Lief for the DHL!).
      What a wonderful product. The sound is really good, the boombox is awesome.
      Thanks to the team for a such work.
      I have a bose Soundlink and I can say I prefer the boombox from far.
      I'll follow you on facebook and take any instagram pics...

      well so much for "ruggedized". my speaker grill started to rust a week ago and is rusting like crazy now...

    21. Pie Innovation on June 27, 2013

      Been testing mine for the last week. Good quality, great looks. Thanks!

      Awesome Sound!!!.
      I just recieved today the boombox rex and my first impresion is that this product is incredible... and loud!!!, quite impressive for such a small speaker.
      Also I wanted to thank you guys for taking care of your backers and give us the feel that I was backing not only a great product, but a great team.

      Regards from Chile!!

    23. David Di Troia on June 26, 2013

      I just checked out your indiegogo campaign, I was just wondering why you guys didn't go with kickstarter again? Some of the changes you made look good, I'll be sure to share the project.

    24. Boombotix 4-time creator on June 24, 2013

      Great to hear the feedback. Tag your instagrams with #boombotix to show them off in action!

      To take off the grill, pushing inward (one hand on the front, one on back) while twisting is key. Helps to put it between your legs and squeeze. They come off with force-- so they wont fall off while you're partying!

      All shipping information will be dealt with in PMs.


    25. Daniniski on June 23, 2013

      Regarding the buzz on high volume. I only get it when there's something plugged in to the line in...

    26. Kevin Yang on June 22, 2013


    27. Kevin Slater on June 22, 2013

      Also, I took this to a party the other night and it was the hit of the fire pit. All my friends want one now.

    28. Kevin Slater on June 22, 2013

      My grill was really difficult to get off, but I got it eventually. The more difficult thing was getting it back on.

    29. David Di Troia on June 22, 2013

      Yeah I found my grill hard to remove. Haven't tried to hard in fear of damaging it. Will have to recheck the instructions. Also where Is the mic placed?

    30. ng ren kai on June 22, 2013

      awesome speakers boombot.
      really REALLY REALLY loving the sound quality.
      shall try @daniniski 's method of running out the battery and recharging it cos my battery also stucks at 75%.
      i have some issue with twisting the grill. tried anticlockwise twisting but it is too tight to remove it. might pose as an issue when i need to clean it in future. :/

      really good sound quality though. freaking love it. - Singapore.

    31. Daniniski on June 21, 2013

      One final message. Out the box mine wouldn't charge to 100% and was stuck as 75%. In the past I've been able to fix this by running the item until the battery dies and then recharging. I tried it with this and it now charges to 100%. Might be worth a try for others.

    32. Daniniski on June 21, 2013

      Although the volume on the boombot doesn't control the volume on the phone. Didn't it do that in one of the demo videos?

    33. Daniniski on June 21, 2013

      ...speak of the devil. It got delivered today with a hefty duty payment. But hell, it sounds excellent. Happy kickstarter in Budapest.

    34. Ow on June 21, 2013

      I think the sound is due to Bluetooth skipping. I've had that prob when playing to my Bluetooth earphones.

    35. Daniniski on June 21, 2013

      It's been in customs for 12 days now. I'm pretty sure they're just having a good time with it now.

      do you offer only a white Tuffskin or are other colors available?

    38. Boombotix 4-time creator on June 20, 2013

      Hello all! @David Di Troia thanks for helping out responding to comments. May your REX live 10,000 years. @bindike, the sound at power on is something we had to ship with, so long as it doesnt interfere with your music (this noise) then your unit is working to spec. If any noise is present with music at middle volume, then please visit our support page.

      And for the Tuffskin, heres a sneak peak:

    39. Tamás on June 20, 2013

      Today i got my Boombot REX, i have some issue, when i turn on i hear some noise, which i think not normal. if i press the volume down or up the problem is same. is it normal? or the normal is when you power on there is no noise coming from the speaker. it is very annoying.

    40. Ow on June 20, 2013

      Wondering if the REx can multi pair? Or must disconnect from one to pair another?

    41. David Di Troia on June 20, 2013

      Everyone is loving the Rex. Can you show us the tuffskin when it's ready.

      Matt Smith on June 20, 2013

      Just a follow-up on my prior comment: SIRI through the boombot REX started working for me after I restarted my iPhone 5. No idea why it was so sporadic initially, but it seems to be reliable ever since it did start working.

    43. Ow on June 19, 2013

      Julian : that's sucks.
