~I received a Boombotix sample for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
I always try to plan out a nice Father’s Day gift in advance or else I find myself scrambling at the last minute and end up giving a less than stellar gift. For my husband and even my own dad technology gifts always seem to go over really well. The only problem is I am not always up to date on the world of technology as there is so much out there and it is ever-changing. I do know that music on the go is always a hit with my family’s active lifestyle so a customized speaker from Boombotix is exactly the type of gift a man in my family would love.
This particular speaker is the recently released “Build-a-Bot,” which allows users to customize their own high-acoustic-quality Boombot REX, which is one of the best speakers in it’s class for sound and portability. The sublimation printing process allows a high-resolution photo to be imprinted on the front grill of the speaker, so options are unlimited. You could use your favorite picture and have it on your speaker wherever you go. Think pictures of your dogs, kids, or your favorite vacation photo.
Here is the original of the photo I put on mine so you can see what it looks like on the speaker based off the photo. I was also able to move it around in the design process so it was placed exactly where I wanted it to go.
You can choose from their list of colors for the clip, body and bezel to make it more your own. I chose my husband’s college colors the good ol’ gator orange and blue. Boombot speakers can pair with any audio device with Bluetooth including smartphones, tablets and laptops. You can also use the built-on auxiliary ports to wire your speaker directly to your device.
Remember this is a smaller speaker as it is meant to be easy to travel with. Even though it is small and lightweight it still projects a crisp and clear sound that can really be cranked up.
The ultra-rugged exterior makes this a great speaker for a dad’s active life. Clip it to a belt, backpack or bag and go. It ships in 3-5 days so you have plenty of time to pick the perfect picture and order this in time for Father’s Day next month. When my husband is not looking I will be certainly be snagging this and clipping it to my bag when I hit the pool and beach as it really is a great little speaker.
