Thodio was founded almost by accident back in 2005 by Thomas Spaans in the rural Dutch village of Nieuwkoop. His goal was to build himself a portable iPod speaker, this was before the iPhone or modern smartphones had arrived on the scene. He named his creation the iBox and on showing it to his friends he was inundated with interest from people who wanted to buy their own.

As a result of all this interest he began building and selling them, each was made one at a time by Spaans personally in the beginning, but before long the device went viral and demand began to skyrocket due to media coverage in Wired, Rolling Stone, Playboy, and other publications.

Spaans began hiring staff to help with manufacturing, which allowed him to focus on developing new models, improving existing models, as well as public relations and advertising. A little over 14 years ago he developed the Thodio .50 Cal Ammo Can Speaker, and it became a best-seller overnight with demand pouring in from around the world.

Since the company was founded, Spaans has developed each speaker to be modular and upgradable by its owner, as technology improves and changes it means owners can plug in upgraded Bluetooth modules or other updates.
