How can I connect to this speaker?
The ION House Party comes with a range of connections for you to use.

If you don’t have Bluetooth, you can connect your audio device directly to the speaker from the headphone socket by using a 3.5mm cable.

How portable is this speaker?
This speaker is lightweight and compact. The recessed handle built into the rear of the House Party will allow you to easily carry the speaker to wherever you want to use it, whether it’s a party in the front room, a meal in the dining room or a sleepover in the bedroom.

How easy is this speaker to use?
This amplified speaker is easy to use. You can connect your Bluetooth device directly in a few simple steps. This gives you wireless playback allowing you to control the music without the need to be close to the speaker. The built-in disco light is controlled from a switch on the front of the speaker where you can turn the light on or off and choose the lighting effect you want when it is active.

Where can I use this portable speaker?
The House Party can be used indoors in your front room, your bedroom or even a small to medium sized hall. Simply plug in a microphone and you have a perfect speaker to use for birthday parties, karaoke nights or singalongs with the children.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bluetooth doesn't work properly! Brought this to run some music for a party, very disappointed as it will not connect to anon these devices via Bluetooth iPad Air, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, MacBook Pro (latest Mavericks OS). They all find the device but only iPhone 4S will actually connect and pair and then only for about 30 seconds! Bluetooth connection is very poor when it does connect with iPhone 4S, and cuts out in few seconds. Online troubleshooting guid is no help at all just says make sure your running latest iOS with latest Bluetooth. All devices are runing a later version of Bluetooth than it seems the Ion House Party is. So can only use iPad connected by cable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great product, as against the odds and appearance of it, it delivers very decent bass levels and enough Watt power to entertain a party (without making people deaf). Very easy to operate on blue tooth with any device (iPhone, iPad, etc.) Cherry on the cake is the lighting system that varies with the beat of your music. If only this could be powered with batteries or rechargeable, then it would be the perfect product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Lights I bought this item about a year and a half ago when it was on promotion, and put it in a cupboard. I have only now unboxed it and set it up. The sound is amazing! Crisp treble, clear mid-range, and well defined bass without any "honkiness" that often plagues cheap speakers. Also it needed no "break-in" period which some manufacturers claim their speakers need to improve the sound quality. (In my experience this makes no difference. If speakers sound bad then they will always sound bad no matter how much they are broken in.) Of course, the lights are a great bonus, and work very well in a small or medium sized room. Despite one reviewer claiming that the bluetooth didn't work properly, I successfully paired the House Party with a couple of smartphones and a tablet without any problems, although Ion's claim of a 100 ft bluetooth range may be a little bit exaggerated. So in summary, definitely an item worth buying if you like good quality sound and the accompanying lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony This is an amazing little speaker, but don't be fooled by it's size it really kicks out the tunes with good quality sound for the price. The lights are a great bonus but you don't have to have them on. I love mine. In the great words of Miranda Hart "such fun"....

Hi. Can I use wireless VHF microphones with this Ion Portable PA system? I am thinking of attaching your ProSound VHF Twin Handheld Radio Mic Kit Code: N42QR to a party speaker/amp in order to use it as a karaoke device? Would VHF mics be compatible??

Asked by: Melanie
Yes that will work fine.

I have 2 of these is there a way to link them both together to play music from one device

Asked by: annabell
It would depend on the device being used as the source, as standard Bluetooth connections only allow a single active pairing at any given time. Some devices have multiple Bluetooth profiles which allow connections to multiple devices simultaneously.
