Ion Audio Block Rocker review

 

Options are limited for those who want to make an obnoxious amount of noise outdoors--boom boxes take batteries, bullhorns are abrasive, and that Marshall guitar stack doesn't travel easily. Thankfully, the rechargeable battery-powered Ion Block Rocker...

The Ion Block Rocker is a portable, powered speaker system that includes an iPod dock, professional XLR microphone, instrument input, and a rechargeable battery.

The sound quality of the Block Rocker is as blunt as it is loud, the speaker is mono, the iPod dock doesn't offer much protection, there's no remote, the system is very heavy, and its design isn't pretty.

If you need a durable, portable, and practical way to get loud, the Ion Block Rocker is an impressive and easy-to-use solution.

WORST PRODUCT AND COMPANY EVER

 

I would never buy anything from Ion Audio or their parent company inMusic ever again. The company doesn't know how to support their products and in the end only produce a crappy product DURABLE? NOT! Support laughable, Warranty in the USA 90 days,...

It plays music.... for a short amount of time

It FAILS and breaks while sitting in storage. After using for a Thanksgiving Party once we put it away in the closet for 1 year. When we took it out again getting ready for Thanksgiving it failed to power on. Talking to support worthless. Disposable

Overall great unit

 

Very good unit. My biggest complaint is that when you listen to AM/FM you have to keep pressing the "search" button tons of times to get to the station you want. IT DOES NOT STAY ON THE LAST STATION YOU WERE LISTENING TOO. Seems like it should, but...

Nicely priced durable easy to move around universal

Would really like a cover for the unit Doesnt stay on last FM station

AWESOME!

 

I scooped this up for $97.99 SHIPPED as an open box buy from Newegg. Keep your eyes open!

I work on the line at GM and it is of course very noisy. This thing over powers the surrounding noise and people down the line say they can hear it. The 8" woofer also insures you will get the bass and not just the shrill sounds when you crank it. The...

Fit and finish was a tad off. A piece of trim on the bottom wasn't fastened correctly but I just put a little glue on it and she was all better. Funny, but maybe it's because the build date sticker was 4/20/2012. :)

A Party in a Box

 

I take this over to my neighbor's house. Crank it up and the next thing you know a kareoke party forms around it. Man I love this thing.

Most boom boxes look like a plastic hunk of junk. This looks like a Marshall Amp made to rock the block. Sounds great Gets LOUD Can host input from several sources at once. Plug in the mic and your guitar and sing along with your favorite bands on your...

A bit heavy but it has wheels and extension handle. No pre-sets or memory for radio Oh Well!!

solid buy

 

overall a great buy at 139 I payed more like 200 a year ago. I used this as a PA for my wedding. would work good for a small wedding. we also rented 2 more powerfull PA's that this unit could connect to for the reception and used the unit alone for the...

Great sound for the price. Portable with wheels and a luggage handle and Great Battery Life Great to use camping when you don't have outlets. Battery lasts 6-8 hours and charges your ipod at the same time.

Its a little big for most applications. Microphone cord stopped working and had to contact for rma.
