Ion Audio iPA76A Block Rocker Bluetooth Speaker Review


The iPA76A Block Rocker is one of the better full-size bluetooth speakers out there in this price range. While it does seem to be leaving a bit to be desired, it’s probably only when you compared it to other, more expensive speakers, which is obviously not a fair comparison.

That being said, it does seem to one of the best options in this price range when it comes to the sound and build quality. However, let’s take a look at some of its pros and cons to help you decide whether it’s the right product for you.


Neither Too Tinny Nor Too Bassy

First things first, getting decent sound quality from a full-size speaker in this price range is probably quite a challenging task. There are some that just aren’t loud enough for a full-size speaker, and some others that come with non-existent bass.

The iPA76A Block Rocker gets as close as they get to a well balanced sound, especially when it comes to not being “more” of anything. As one of the “audiophile” customers mention in their review, it’s neither too tinny nor too bassy.

As for the loudness, anyone within 30 feet of the speaker should definitely be pleased, and be able to hear it pretty clearly. Surprisingly, however, there’s very little distortion unless you turn up the volume to over 75%. This is actually much better when compared to some other speakers in this price range.

Finally, with a 1.5 mid/tweeter and 8 inch woofer, and a relatively strong tuner and impressive sound output of 50W, you get more than what you pay for when it comes to the sound.

Build Quality and Design

The Block Rocker is very solid and sturdy, and sure to last a long time. The design, too, is very functional and stylish.

It also comes with wheels and a handle that make it more portable and easier to transport, which is great.

Battery Life

The battery life is very impressive, too, for the price, and it would easily last around 13 hours with average use. At lower volumes, it may obviously last much longer.

The battery is also rechargeable which is great as well.

Some Minor Flaws

Well, don’t expect anything in this price range to be perfect, and the Block Rocker is no exception. Some of the minor flaws it comes with include:

  • The handle is very low quality
  • The microphone is very poor quality (What did you expect at this price?)
  • Slightly smaller wheels

A Final Word

The pros of the Block Rocker far outweigh its cons, making it a great bluetooth speaker in this price range. While it’s not professional-quality, it’s a great speaker for personal use at this price.
