First of all, I am pretty sure young people don't even use 'boomboxes' any more. That was more an 80s thing. Young people have headphones or the play music directly from their phones (which I do find annoying when they do it on buses).
As a relatively young person I can tell you that no, we didn't use boomboxes. I had a discman when I was 10 and I got a mp3 player when I was 14 or something. Now most people I know use phones, log on to wifi and use Spotify.
I suppose today the closest thing to a boombox is when someone gets wireless speakers they can connect to their phone.
