The Original Rechargeable Vintage Suitcase BoomBox.

The BoomCase works with any device with a headphone output. Simply plug your phone, iPhone,iPod,computer etc. into the BoomCase AUX port and play your music for over 18 hours on a single charge. We also offer Bluetooth Connectivity for wireless play! Each BoomCase is a one of a kind piece. No two BoomCases are the same.

The BoomCase Story:

The BoomCase was born in the Inner Sunset District of San Francisco, CA. Discouraged from always having to buy 12 “D” batteries for my BoomBox (which didn’t sound that great), I decided to build my own.

I have been building portable battery powered speaker systems since 1999. When it came time to make my own Boombox I had two goals: 1.) It had to have a built-in rechargeable battery. 2.) It had to sound great.

In the Summer of 2010 I decided to put pictures up of a new “BoomCase” on my artist website www.MrSiMo.com and My Etsy Store. Soon After ChipChick.com blogged about us. Engadget.com re-blogged ChipChick.com’s post and the rest is history.

The BoomCase is currently Hand-Made in Sacramento, California. We are opening a new shop in Oakland, CA in late 2013. The BoomCase is sold in select retailers in the USA, the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland,the Netherlands,Hong-Kong and South Korea. To see a continually updated list visit here – Retail Locations

Sound Quality:

Each BoomCase is built using quality drivers, a unique handmade crossover and each acoustically designed to compliment the speakers used. The BoomCase team has over 40 years of combined audio building experience. Every BoomCase is rigorously tested for 2+ days to audiophile sound quality standards before shipping out.

How Does The BoomCase Work?:

Simply Plug your Audio Device into the Aux Input, turn on the power switch and play. See the diagram below for a better understanding of the BoomCase controls. Bluetooth wireless play is also available.

The BoomCase team cares for the environment: In addition to repurposing vintage suitcases (up-cycling) – we only use recyclable/biodegradable packing material.

Our latest BoomCase model is being made with Reveal. For every product Reveal sells it donates to American Forests which in turn plants trees, restores ecosystems etc. View our collaboration section to learn more.
