Here are the big ticket observations: For starters excellent Bluetooth range. I can easily attain 50-75ft depending on the surroundings. Sound quality is clean, clear, and loud. There is plenty of volume to get the job done. I agree with other reviewers that the best max volume setting is around the 75-85% range to avoid distortion. The battery life is unbelievable, amazing really. These refurb units come with the 75 hour battery and yes, even at sustained max output this battery can outlast the Energizer bunny. Any negative reviews I found on this unit usually have to do with the battery no longer holding a charge. My thought on this is since I only spent $99 to have this unit dropped on my doorstep, if I have to shell out $20 in the future for a replacement battery then so be it. So far I have had good success buying refurb'ed electronics, maybe I'm just lucky but there was no way to tell the product I received from a new one. In fact, I was so impressed that at my recommendation, our church has also now purchased one of these units.
The last comment is regarding the microphone. Personally, I think it's great that one is even included. Many have stated it's OK, not great. To some extent I agree but I found that the microphone actually works pretty well if you move it close to your mouth. The cord is not very long but a long cord would in essence negate the overall portability of the unit. I have a wireless mic for my unit that is affordable and effective if you don't mind having to replace batteries.Read more ›
Some reviews claim the battery life was less than advertised. Others claim the Bluetooth signal was weak. I can counter both these claims with personal testimony. When I first got the block rocker I tested the Bluetooth. I set the speaker in my front room and walked all around the house going in and out of various rooms with no loss of signal. The next day I put the speaker outside and walked all around the front and backyard. Between my front and backyard it covers about ½ acre. Again I had seen no loss of signal or sound quality. The other test was battery life. Once I achieved a full charged I placed the speaker outside and played music via Bluetooth for about 6 hours. The next I played about 8 hours and charge my phone for an hour (still had 2 bars of battery. Finally on the third day after another 8 hours I got down to 1 bar of battery. I would have run it down to red but I had a party the next day and needed to charge it. Another bonus it didn’t take very long to recharge. I could go on and on about the block rocker. There are some things that could be improved
The speaker does only have 1 setting so if you plan on playing a variety of music you may want to download an EQ app to adjust the settings manually
There is no place to store or rest the mic when not in use
The owner’s manual is not very detail
But for 150$ you cant beat it
-excellent for outdoor activities - picnic, fishing, sports
-long lasting battery. I have not tried full blast and see how long it will last; but at low volume, it will play for days!
-Bluetooth connection works every time
-radio will stay on same station as the last setting
-microphone is not high quality; but I don't need it
-electrical cord does not retract
recommendation: BUY IT !!

Built in bluetooth is nice, but Apple AirPlay sounds so much better (lossless compared to compress audio of BT).
Here is a quick video on how to add Apple AirPlay Support to the ION Block Rocker Bluetooth Portable Speaker System using the AirEnabler.
