ION Audio today announced a $200 go-anywhere wireless speaker and party lighting all-in-one system called Block Party Live. The suitcase-sized Bluetooth speaker is equipped with party lights, microphone and app control to liven up any get-together. It improves upon the original Block Party, adding control via the ION Party Rocker app and extra orange light to the rhythmic light show. The company says the new speaker has been improved to offer enhanced dynamic range and sound clarity.
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.
Imagine a starry lightshow in a woodsy campfire setting, the ultimate street or beach party, or your favorite holiday gathering: Block Party Live transforms any space into a celebration. Portable telescoping handle and built-in wheels make it easy to transport the party wherever you choose. Plus, a hand-held microphone makes you the star DJ who keeps the crowd moving.
