Color: Orange
I love this speaker. The sound is great, it's plenty loud enough for outdoor use, and has made our outdoor gatherings and hangouts a lot more fun. It pairs easily with your phone, and is heavy enough to feel substantial with great build quality, but still manages to be very portable. Long battery life too.

HELPFUL TIP: When I first turned it on I was disappointed with muddy & distorted sound, but then I noticed that the volume on my phone was turned all the way up. When I turned my phones volume down to about midway, the sound quality vastly improved. I could still turn the volume up on the speaker itself and enjoy excellent sound.

ANOTHER HELPFUL TIP: I would recommend downloading an equalizer app so you can adjust the treble, bass, etc on your phone. This speaker only has a volume knob, but with an equalizer app you can customize it to your preferences. ION has one called the Block Rocker app, which works with this speaker.

I completely agree with most here that the audio is surprisingly clear and load on this product. I wanted to dive in on the battery issue that some are having.

Unlike most consumer electronics that use a Lithium Ion, this big boy is a sealed LEAD ACID battery, similar to the battery in your car. As such, it should be treated differently to get the best results and the longest life. Here are a few tips to get the most out of your device: The first 10-20 cycles of a lead acid battery are called "formatting", all you need to know about this is try not to work the battery too hard. At the very least, keep from completely draining the battery and charge as often as you can. This unit comes with an onboard circuitry that keeps the battery from overcharging, so you do not need to worry about that.

Also, keep in mind that the battery CAN be replaced if needed, the 4 screws on the bottom of the unit can be removed and a replacement can be purchased on amazon. The main thing to keep in mind is to prevent from completely discharging the battery, and you should be able to get 200+ cycles from it.

This speaker is a beast. It's rugged and loud, which is exactly what I was looking for. I use it to play music at indoor and outdoor volleyball games. It can easily handle 2 or 3 courts worth of sound outside, and at least 3 courts inside, even with a lot of noise in a gym. I'm not afraid when a ball bounces off the front because it's got a handle bar protecting it, and dirt and dust aren't a problem for it. The controls are easy to use, but I haven't tried the FM radio yet. It doesn't have USB charging for your phone, which would be a nice touch, but that isn't a major concern for me.

Sound:
The sound quality is excellent. It doesn't get distorted even at high volumes, and the bass really holds up well. The sound is pretty balanced, but playing music through my phone on it, I can always adjust the EQ from my phone if I need to.

Connections:
The aux port on my unit is a little wonky.. if I don't have the aux cable in just right, it just turns to static, but at long as I make sure it's okay and don't move my phone much after that, it seems to be fine. Maybe I just got unlucky. The Bluetooth connection is strong, but I usually have to tell it to disconnect the Bluetooth then reconnect to it, then it's fine. Maybe that's just a byproduct of my battery dying though. Speaking of the battery..

Battery:
It's rated to last 50 hours, and while it lasted a long time for me the first few times I used it, after about 2 months the battery no longer holds a charge for more than about 5 minutes. This may be because it uses a lead-acid battery, similar to a car battery, and if you let the battery die completely, apparently that causes problems.

Just received this today so can't talk to its durability, but generally pretty impressed with this speaker so far. Easy to use, louder than expected and not too big. It's a bit heavier than I expected and the sound quality at high volumes isn't great, but I'm happy.

So I purchased this speaker to fill the beach party with my fav music and this little puppy did the job. The sound is astonishingly good with deep bass at any volume. I ran it all day on the beach (for like 10 hours straight with volume know set to 12 o'clock via Bluetooth) and the battery meter still shows full charge, that is amazing! I run it now at home trying to see when batter dies but so far another 10 hours and battery is still holding up at 3 LEDs.

It pairs with my phone super fast, no delay, amazing. It also picks up my paired phone whenever I turn the switch on, this is super because it saves me to manually connect when I need to. I recently paired my Echo Dot (Amazon Alexa Dot) with this speaker so now I have portable combo which I can control by voice which makes my friends jealous as I command my speaker to play what I want anytime I want - see attached pictures. Echo is powered directly from USB charging port on my ION Rocker so it always stays on. Isn't it great?

The only thing is I have to have my Dot feed from my phone which works as hotspot but that is not a problem. It works every time.

Tomorrow I am taking my ION (With Dot) for a boat cruise, this should be a treat! The only minus is that the two AC outlets at the back are just passing through the AC input, I was under impression these would provide 120VAC even when working from battery as most of car charged converters. But it is not a case, however I decided to keep this puppy and now with Dot companion, the duo is really rockin' !
