    ION Audio Pathfinder reviews

    Pathfinder Waterproof Rechargeable Speaker System (Gray) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good portable outdoor bluetooth music box! Really sturdy and sounds great, nice bass outside by the pool. Very easy to pair the bluetooth and radio reception was good the first time I tried FM. The cup holders come in handy too! I only hope I don't lose the power cord. That's the only thing -- it would be even better if there was a storage cubby on the unit to hold the power cord securely when it is not plugged in.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still New To Me... Bought this for using at the community pool, where a smaller bluetooth speaker wasn't quite enough. This speaker solves that issue and some. This unit has great battery life, a great form factor, and 'good' sound. Only good sound, as there are no inputs for bass/treble controls, which would then get it a 5 in my book. The microphone is a bonus for the grandkids, but doubt we use it much, unless we start telling jokes (we cant sing, but are kinda funny). I would suggest this speaker for anyone wanting to upgrade from a table top one, especially if you dont want to break the bank.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery is no good I purchased the ION Pathfinder as an upgrade to my Monster Rocking Roller which I've had for almost 4 years now. The ION speaker is built great and the actual speaker is very loud. The only thing i was disappointed in was the battery life. On a full charge the battery would only last 4hrs max NOT 72. I called customer support and they shipped me out a new battery free of charge that i had to install myself. That new battery works good and the speaker is operating fine but it's not going to last nowhere near 70hrs as stated. If you're playing your music on bluetooth (Which most of us are doing) the battery is only going to last 8-9hrs on high or max volume. If you're charging your phone then it'll last less. Other than that this is a good portable bluetooth speaker.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this thing! I used it from Friday to Sunday on Labor Day weekend and didn't have to charge it once! It is loud and looks nice. The only real drawback on it is the microphone volume. I wish it was a little more so, it could be used for karaoke better. You have to turn the master volume down enough to hear the microphone. Otherwise, this thing is great for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Upgrade Recently had to replace my 10+ year old Ion Block Rocker. �This is a great upgrade! Bluetooth, water resistant, lighter, better battery life and phone charging. �All for less than I spent on the original.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I ask of it I bought this larger wattage mono unit based on several requirements, in order of importance. More volume @ less distortion to fill large rooms with sound, battery powered, water proof. At the time I bought it, there were virtually no product reviews, so I took a chance based on ION's name in the business.

At the time I bought it, there were virtually no product reviews, so I took a chance based on ION's name in the business. Wish it had a remote control for volume Wish it had treble and base control, the sound is rather flat, although loud and fairly boomy. Ergonomics are first class, east to move, easy to use, solid construction. I never use the microphone, can't speak on that.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Maybe... Decent sound. I bought for softball tournaments for outside music. This isn't built for this app. Better for inside music. Sound will fill up a room. Pathfinder can't handle bass from a lot of the songs I play. Volume has to stay low enough to keep distortion down with songs that are bass heavy. No equalizer to adjust bass down. Not very happy with this product for the price. Great service and fast shipping though from BH!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's the hit at all parties and functions! After careful research, I finally settled on buying the ION Audio Pathfinder and I'm glad that I did. It's loud, crisp and clear, but the only downfall is that the mic is kind of low. It's not too bad, but I do wish that it was a little louder. You have to speak directly into the mic to really be heard. It's still not enough for me to return my new best friend! This is the only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars.
