Editor's Notes

April 09, 2020:

Ion speakers cover a whole range of applications, to suit different tasks and environments. Some things they all have in common are their durability, their Bluetooth connectivity, and their ability to run from either a mains supply or using their integral rechargeable battery.

With that said, they diversify in terms of their intended usage, for example, the ISP74BK Dunk and the iPA95 Survival Scout are both ultra-portable, and ideal for taking on outbound activities like walking or kayaking, whereas the Party Rocker Plus and the Total PA Glow 2 are better suited closer to home, such as a karaoke night with friends, or a social function.

Others, Ion speakers, such as the Job Rocker Max and Block Rocker Plus are a good choice for outdoor work environments, barbecues, and picnics, but are also great accessories to have around the house, and would make a welcome addition to any den, basement, or loft space.

Whatever your intended usage happens to be, the models listed in our ranking are all built with good attention to detail, and to an overall high standard considering their reasonable price tags. If you are still unsure as to whether to buy an Ion speaker, you may wish to consider Braven speakers, which are also high quality, and offer similar features.
