ION Audio Road Rocker | Portable tooth Speaker – I LIKE IT VERY MUCH

Rocker is fantastic but it smelt of cigarettes.

I purchased the irr a while ago, i am a dj and like to jam with apps via my ipad, i have noticed some latency issues with the bluetooth, out of sync with bpms but i am not sure if this is an ipad problem or an irr problem. I plugged my guitar into the front mic input jack, to use it as a small amp, but the metal part has come loose already. Also, the docking charger hasn’t worked from day one, which was pretty disappointing. The sound distorts, ‘fluffs’ and crackles at high volume. It has v good bass, boomy, an extra treble knob wouldn’t go amiss. The bluetooth works about 99% of the time. The battery is very good, it lasts a very long time. Good for basic music listening. If your a budding musician, get something of better quality.

Good but can’t go over half way speaker distorts. Here are the specifications for the ION Audio Road Rocker | Portable tooth Speaker:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Stream music wirelessly from your iPad, iPhone or other Bluetooth-enabled devices
  • Ultra-compact, high-quality full range speaker with port for extra bass
  • Built-in rechargeable battery for up to 8 hours of use
  • USB port for charging mobile phones, tablets and other mobile devices
  • 1/4 and 1/8 inch input for microphones, instruments or non-Bluetooth music players

Christmas present and the recipient was blown away. Not only can he use his iphone and ipad but mp3 player too.

The battery itself is probably worth the most. I’ve listened to it for 5 days now without charging. My only issue is, the main thing. The sound, the sound starts off brilliant and gets quite loud but, i’d say anything over 60% on volume is pointless as this just distorts. But a good product if you want a quiet jam. Oh also first one i ordered didn’t work on the usb charger.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Sound quality was good, it was exactly what we wanted
  • Brilliant little unit – but keep it to yourself!

Sound quality was good, it was exactly what we wanted. Very long lasting battery life we had it on all afternoon and well into the night and it still had plenty of life. Sound quality was good, it was exactly what we wanted. It is really east to use even for a couple of thecnophobes like us. It was smaller than we expected but that’s a plus because it makes it easy to store and you can use it on a work top.

Product as described – well worth the money.

It just touches on having a bit of beef to it – however sound quality does break down depending on which signals you put in- microphone and wireless microphone seem to work fine. I would still only class it as a room device or small area.

Brilliant little unit – but keep it to yourself. I have used this unit for lectures and presentations with great success. It is quite capable of filling an average sized village hall and is amazingly self contained and portable. The battery seems to last forever and it can be set up and in use with ease. On one occasion two men had grappled unsuccessfully with a major multi speaker pa system and the road rocker was simply brought in, switched on, mic connected and up and running in about 60 seconds. But please don’t take it out to all those wonderful picnic and other public spots shown on their adverts. Not everyone wants to hear your choice of music.

I’ve searched the web a lot to find a speaker that covers evrything this one does: i. Rechargeable; bluetooth; dock charger; lightweight; not silly money. A friend has the logitech version but doesn’t have the dock charger (this is a usb cable slot rather than a direct to your i-product). I loved the look of this one and it seems robust. I wasn’t expecting an awesome sound from it just enough to amplify music or videos from my i-phone/i-pad. The sound at full volume for some music is a little disappointing as the speaker can’t always cope with the bass but overall it does what i wanted it to.

Good but can’t go over half way speaker distorts.

  1. Very handy in our school pe department. . Bought this for the pe department in a secondary school. Great to sync up the teacher ipads and take wherever for lessons that need a bit of music (dance, aerobics etc. ) – works fine in the smaller rooms (they have a bigger sound system for the gym/sports hall) and perfect for bleep tests inside or outside as no bass is needed for that, so it can be cranked right up. As expected, it’s a small speaker, so it can’t be cranked up too far with a pop song on or it begins to distort – just reminded the pe staff to use it in smaller rooms. Nice and handy for our needs though, which are probably different from the average user.

    A reasonably priced unit which is lightweight and easily portable. The sound quality is very good whether using mains or battery. This little power box fairly livened up the party of 40 people in a small function suite. My one critisim would be that you cannot dock your i-pad or i-pad directly and must use the cable provided which is a bit of a nuisance. I must learn how to use bluetooth.
