**When a 3rd generation iPod is used with this product, the iPod will not charge. Although 3rd generation iPods feature dock connectors, these iPods communicate via FireWire, not USB (which is used on all newer iPods). This difference makes it impossible for many products with dock connectors to provide a charge to 3rd Generation iPods.

See iPod Compatibility Chart (Found in the Documents section for full details).

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (57 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "It was working well but it is really short lived"
Sound: After 10 months the amplifier is producing a steady humming sound that covers soft music and is very annoying during silences. I would rate this as 1 As new the sound quality was good, probably 8, so the average is 4. Feature: In theory it has all the right features. It is a great idea: a portable amplifier where you can plug iPods or other devices (to the jacks) . It also comes with a microphone. The materials have to be poor since the amplifier is not lasting a year of gentle use and now produces a distorted sound. Ease of Use: It is very easy to use: just plug and set the volume. You can not modify the sound but I was not expecting an equalizer. Quality: Looks nice white an shiny but it is more appearance. The amplifier is not working after less than a year: produces continuously a humming sound. The device is not very sturdy considering that is designed for outdoor use. It is not designed for easy maintenance: not even the battery is easy to replace. Probably ION is aware of the problems since it offers only 90 days warranty (on the new product, not a refurbished one) Value: It is not expensive for the features it offers but it lasted less than a year of gentle infrequent use and attentive care (I followed the demanding instructions to keep the battery in good condition) Manufacturer Support: ION provides only 90days warranty. The customer support difficult to reach (their unadvertised toll free number is 1 888 8000681). The first time I called, Monday mid day, after a long menu selection I waited 45min (the expected time announced was 18min) only to be sent to a voice mailbox. No one called me back. The second time I called early morning and was able to reach them. They gave some trivial and ineffective troubleshooting suggestion and referred me to a repair shop in NJ (I'm in Chicago). The Wow Factor: It looks good but it is kind of expensive as piece of furniture. Overall: I'm not satisfied with the product. I was very happy with it only for the first few months. I will look for an alternative product. It was working well but it is really short lived.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Packs a punch for $15 watts and looks gorgeous doing it."
Sound: The sound is great! packs a punch for 15 watts! Good bass response. No onboard EQ, but i just do that through my applications. Feature: i didn't really need the mic that is included but am not complaining. I wish the wheels were bigger though--I have to walk a lot with my gear and this thing does not like brick sidewalks. but it is really no worse than carrying a heavy wheeled suitcase. Ease of Use: The manual is 2 pages--it just looks thick because it is multilingual. You really don't need anything more, just guidance for charging the battery. Quality: The knobs seem a little cheap but other than that it seems well made. Value: It seemed pricey at first but now that I have started using it i think it is worth it. The Wow Factor: It looks gorgeous!! White and silver. Very cat-proof. I cannot own carpeted speakers with 2 cats so this is perfect. Overall: If I lost this item I would buy another one.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
