Four years ago, three high school friends, Jesper Thiel Thomsen, Christoffer Nyvold, and Hjalte Wieth started SOUNDBOKS in Denmark. They designed the original SOUNDBOKS to be the first and only portable speaker capable of throwing a real party anywhere. And, with a small team, they built the first 400 in a garage outside Copenhagen.

After selling out for Roskilde Festival 2015, the trio quickly realized that this speaker is perfect for any music lover, no matter where they are. So they made their effort international and launched on Kickstarter.

The SOUNDBOKS community grew strong and the demand kept increasing, so they kept innovating, iterating, and growing the team. SOUNDBOKS carved out a new product category in Bluetooth Performance Speakers, and continues to lead the way in pushing the boundaries and potential of how users interact with music.

The New SOUNDBOKS is the third generation SOUNDBOKS. It takes the category to a whole new level with a suite of intuitive upgrades including TeamUp mode that links up to five speakers wirelessly using SKAA connectivity. It is still the world’s first (and only) Bluetooth Performance Speaker on the market. 

Unlike your average tabletop Bluetooth speaker, the SOUNDBOKS creates a unique and portable sound experience with immersive sound at any volume, whether you’re listening quietly around the campfire, or taking it to pump-up the crowd at the next off-road racing event. You can thank the power onboard amps, 2×10-inch woofers and 1.0-inch compression tweeter for that. 

Perfected for dirty, dusty, and extreme environments, The New SOUNDBOKS (Gen. 3) is unbelievably durable. The steel grill, aluminum frame, coated poplar cabinet and IP65 rated electronics make it dentproof, dustproof, splashproof and lifeproof. Ideal for strapping to the roof of your vehicle, the back of your UTV, or right down in the dirt. 

Since the SOUNDBOKS was built to be taken out, it’s equipped with a swappable battery pack called the BATTERYBOKS that allows you to keep the music going whether you have external power or not. Each battery takes 3.5 hours to charge from dead to full. Once fully charged, you’re ready to listen for 40 hours at mid-volume (which is still pretty loud) or up to five bass-bumping hours at max volume (which is amazingly loud — it goes all the way to 11). Bring one battery for the weekend, or stock up for a longer trip and swap them out as needed.

At 33lbs, the SOUNDBOKS may not be the first thing you think of when you hear “portable,” but the SOUNDBOKS was made to move. Our groundbreaking pulse reflex port design doubles as super-ergonomic side handles. The shock-absorbent silicon ball corners ensure a no-skid grip no matter what you put it down on. And when you do finally put it down, you’re going to be thrilled about what comes next. For over five years, the SOUNDBOKS has been rated the most comfortable Bluetooth speaker to sit on — it’s also been known to be a solid table, a steady platform, and the perfect seat around the campfire.
