With all the variable types of bluetooth speakers out I wanted something my 8 year old could use with the tablet to sing Karaoke with which it does very well. I was originally going to buy a Karaoke only device and was closing in on $250 for one that wasn't a total piece and I didn't want to HAVE to use the TV for the karaoke display. PLus after looking into the available songs and ease of downloading and buying I found that the Android based phones/tablets you have MULTIPLE FREE APP options and can even get new music not just older songs. Using Youtube so far is the easiest. Just search for the song you want with lyrics or karaoke. Super Easy. Now the other GREAT selling points are the cordless (built in battery) is great for me. I used to wear a set of bluetooth headphones so I could stream Pandora while working in the garage. Now I use this speaker which is plenty loud and move it around no wires. Has a built in AM/FM radio which has a digital tuner and works very well too. IF and I mean if I had to say anything bad is it is a little bigger then other similiar ones but is solid and nothing feels like it'll break easy. You'll appreciate the size when you hear the sound quality. Anyone who knows speakers knows small speakers in a small housing don't make good sound generally. I plan on using it camping, the beach, all kinds of activities. Well worth the $129 I think I paid for it. Don't let the fact that it doesn't say Sony, Samsung, or Beats scare you. Another tidbit just to show how much I really like it I have never submitted a review before. I read tons and use them for most my purchases but this one actually got me to do a review.
The ION Speaker System fits my needs almost perfectly...would have liked to have remote control for at least the volume. Still, the Tailgater with Bluetooth is a bargain and now I don't have to build an "ice chest" sound system to take camping.
I bought this mainly for the convenience of having a larger portable Bluetooth speaker system, especially for when I am outside doing yardwork or something, but I was really surprised how powerful the system is sound-wise. I am very pleased with it.
I bought the ION tailgater with bluetooth after reading many positive reviews online......I have had it for 2 weeks now, and used a total of 40+ hours, and I must say I REALLY like it. I have been building a shed on a remote river property I recently purchased, and have had it playing for over 8 hours at a time. When I turned it off for the day, it still showed full charge. It has good sound, is plenty loud (even outdoors I haven't needed or wanted to turn it higher than about 3/4 max volume thus far#, and my son loves to play with the included microphone. I was impressed that it also comes with an audio-in cord in case you are using a device that doesn't have bluetooth, and it has a usb plug to recharge your phone/mp3 player while you are using it. It seems to get decent radio reception (not what I bought it for) with the attached antennae fully extended. Don't get me wrong, it doesn't have head-splitting bass and it can't be heard from miles away, but for all the features of this unit, I am VERY pleased for the price. My family will def have a lot of fun with it at the lake this summer and while hanging out at the river!
This system really surprised me.... great for use by the pool! Everybody always has their own tunes on their phones, so this makes it perfect with the bluetooth! very clear sound and gets louder than needed! over all! glad i made this purchase!
Product comes in handy. its portable, no need for power outlet, has battery life of 12-15 hrs. everything about this product is good but my only complaint is the bass. It for sure needs waaaayyyy more bass. its loud and clear but bass is weak which is why i gave it a 3 star. too much $$ for this product, price should range from $70-$90. I have had the Logitec subwoofer that was stronger and that was for a pc.
This is a quality piece of equipment I take it out on my patio and it brigs it to life. What can you purchase for 149 bucks with a 2 year warranty that has a built in battery?
I can't wait to take it on my next fishing trip.
I did not purchase it for the microphone and I cant sing.
Great for power outages will recharge your tablet or cell phone and the 3 led lights will illuminate a dark room.
I have used it more than 50 hrs before the battery needed recharging.
The only fear I have is when my children & grandchildren come to visit they will ask me can they borrow it and that will be the end of it!
Its mine mine all mine go get your own!
READ THIS BEFORE YOU PURCHASE. Very disappointed. Walmart needs to change their online advertising of this product. The online product description is: "ION Tailgater Bluetooth Compact Speaker System with Wireless Technology". I picked up the item yesterday, and it is actually the "ION Tailgater Compact Speaker System for iPod". NO BLUETOOTH OR WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY ... with no price discount for lesser product that is advertised online. Will keep this, reluctantly, since I will not be able to order the bluetooth model and have it in time for the event I need it for.
Great sound comes out of this speaker for being small.
I'm not really familiar with ION products but I wanted a portable speaker for a party at my back yard. I didn't want to spend from 200 - 500 on speakers for my ipad. I was ready to return the product if it didn't sound great but to my surprise I was pleasantly happy with the product and people at my party kept asking me where did I get it that the sound was great and at that it wasn't all the way loud. It is very easy to connect to a wireless device. Now for the microphone I didn't use it but when I test it the sound wasn't so loud but I don't care for that feature that's not why I bought it for.
We purchased ours at the recommendation of a friend. It has lasted longer than any other entertainment equipment has. We love it!!!
I brought this item for my boys living room and it's excellent with bluetooth devices, clear sound, super powerfull speaker and clear sound with any kind of music, this little speaker its easy to carry, the only one thing what I'm not really happy with this, is the microphone volume because we love to sings and this item on music heards more than microphone, so! but still good. I really recommended this for music on parties, picnics anywhere with out cables, and also for karaoke but for me I think needs a little bit more of power and clear sound in microphone only.
I gave this to my son for his birthday - he asked for it - and he's already taken it all over the place with him. Next it will be going back to college with him. Very portable and has great sound. And, it couldn't have been easier to get. Ordered it from Walmart online and picked it up instore 2 hours later.
Love it great for backyard BBQ's
I used my Ion Tailgater to teach a CPR class. The microphone was loud and clear and I was able to play music easily and clearly from my iPhone via Bluetooth. I highly recommend the product! WalMart's price was the best I found.
I received my speaker in 2 days. The description of the product was right on. Overall very pleased with the product.
Stays charged for days of hard use while keeping the phone charged and the music streaming.
the sound is fantastic! it is lightweight. i take it on the boat with me and use outside down at the dock. music is clear. i use it in the house, of course, too. my 21 year old loves it! great price for what you are getting.
