Soundhub is pleased to announce the Australian arrival of the Berlin Boombox.

The Berlin Boombox is a speaker stereo made from recycled cardboard that takes its design cue from the 1980's styled boombox. Connecting via a standard headphone port, it is compatible with any iPhone/Smartphone or mP3 player.

Designed and developed by German illustrator and DJ Axel Pfaender, the project came to fruition thanks to a highly successful crowd-funding campaign via kickstarter.com. Axel first conceived the idea several years back and after having received such positive feedback, he decided to bring his idea to life.

Rarely do tech products tick the boxes for sustainability, however this is perhaps what makes the Berlin Boombox so unique. With lightweight design and flat-packed construction, its energy consumption in shipment is considerably less than the traditional docking speaker. All design, screen-printing, cardboard production and packaging are done locally in Berlin, helping further reduce its footprint. And being made from recycled cardboard (heavy-duty, corrugated at that) and being recyclable itself, the Berlin Boombox is sure to impress the eco/audio conscious among us.

Owners of the Berlin Boombox will enjoy a fun, simple build process with no glue or tools required. Included is an easy to follow, step-by-step construction guild or there is a handy photo tutorial available on the Berlin Boombox website.

It’s not hard to see why we love the Berlin Boombox. Axel Pfaender has taken his idea and created a sound system that not only looks unique, but is also committed to upholding principles of environmental sustainability. We’re sure there are a lot of 80’s kids out there that will be as excited as this product as we are.

The Berlin Boombox is available now at www.soundhubs.com.au.
