The ION Room Rocker is a bluetooth speaker designed to rock your room, hence the name. The speaker has a wide range with an emphasis on the bass. The speaker is not small so it is not meant to be moved around much. Why would you want to? You could accidentally damage this nice looking speaker! The speaker is available from ION for $149.99. Allow me to show you why it’s worth the price.
The speaker excels in it’s form. The speaker is big and it is wide so it does take up a lot of room but it is not bulky. On the front, it is a simplistic design. The standard black cover that protects almost all speakers is on this one as well. Surrounding it is a silver trim. Inside the black mesh there is a light that shows a blue color when it is on and shows no color when it is not. Right below that is the cool ION logo. Below that is gray bar that also projects sound. The sides are all black and have a texture like that of other high quality, high price speakers. On the top, most of it is the same black material. However, on the top there is also a dock and four buttons. The dock is handy for when you want to listen to music but you are almost out of charge. I find it nice to have that option to just put it on the dock. Some bluetooth speakers do not offer the functionality of a dock just in case you need it. The buttons included are the off/on button, volume buttons and a connect bluetooth button. The bluetooth button has a light that allows you to know if it is connected to something bluetooth. On the back, there is a bass speaker as well as on the bottom. Included with the speaker is a remote that allows for much more functionality than the buttons on the speaker itself. It is solidly made, unlike many remotes that come with speakers. Overall, this speaker shines in it’s form.
What? What did you say?! This would be something you would say to your friend sitting right next to you if you were to put these speakers on full blast. These speakers are that loud. If you want a room rocker, this is it. If you want a house rocker this is it as well. Of course, this is at high blast. It’s not a representation at mid-level or, of course, low-level. This speaker has great sound at any volume level, something some speakers have difficulty in accomplishing. Some people may want to put the bass reducer function on their devices on with these speakers. These speakers have an incredible bass ability, better than many other speakers on the market. That said, the sound sounds great across the board. This speaker is meant to stay in one place for most of it’s life. The speaker is not that light and is not portable. It is, however, perfect for a shelf or an end table. The buttons on it signify that it relies heavily on controlling the sound from either the device or the remote, considering only the power button, volume buttons and Bluetooth button make a debut on the speaker. The remote has power, volume, mute, Bluetooth, rewind, play/pause, forward and shuffle buttons. Whew. Thankfully the remote is included with this speaker since all of us prefer to use remotes then get up and change the song. I appreciate that ION added the remote in since without it, the speaker would not work. Of course, an alternative to that scenario is if there was no remote but more functionality in the speaker itself, but the way they chose to do it is better. This is a great speaker that I could highly recommend.
-Whole musical range sounds great with a good emphasis on bass
-Made well and well designed
-Remote allows for quick, easy wireless controls
-At this time, there are no cons to report
Ways to Improve
Although I did not mention this in my cons list, I do think that the company should consider adding additional buttons to the speaker. Of course, this is nothing to pull off all the merchandise off the shelves to fix but it is something to consider should they ever make an improved version of this speaker.
This is a really great speaker. I could recommend it to anyone, including those who don’t want a lot of volume, because of the power, the sound, it can bring at 80% volume and at 20% volume. If you are looking for a bluetooth speaker, I would highly consider this one. How could I refrain from giving this speaker 5 stars? I couldn’t, this speaker easily gets five stars from me! Great job ION!
