ION’s Block Party Live Brings the Party Anywhere

ION’s Block Party Live wireless speaker system, equipped with party lights and app control, delivers fun on the go.

Cumberland, RI – CES Show Daily New Product – Booth Central #11640 – Under Embargo November 12, 2014 – ION Audio, a leader in lifestyle consumer electronics, today announces Block Party Live, a go-anywhere speaker and party lighting all-in-one system with custom app control, sure to liven up any bash.

Block Party Live pumps out your favorite tunes using cutting-edge wireless speaker technology and a built-in rechargeable battery so you can take the party anywhere. With 50 watts of dynamic power, Block Party Live lets you stream music from any device via Bluetooth. Using an optimized bass-ported cabinet and 2-way speaker, the Block Party Live delivers punchy, exciting sound that’s sure to be a hit with everyone.

To light up the night, Block Party Live comes with a built-in multi-mode integrated lightshow that moves to the music. A vibrant orange, red, green, and blue LED Light Dome swirls around and showers any room with a sea of dancing colored dots, providing an enhanced level of visual excitement. In ‘beat sync mode,’ the motion and pulse of the light is locked to the music for an intense multi-media spectacle. Switch over to the ‘auto mode’ and watch as the lights take on a life all their own. And if that’s not enough, Block Party Live includes a free mobile app for iOS or Android, offering real-time control of the Light Dome motor speed. Plus, you can choose the correct color palette to add a visual theme or create a festive feel for your celebration.
