Previously known near-exclusively for audio equipment—and formerly branded as Ion Audio—Ion has branched out into other types of accessories over the past few years. This year, it’s showing a large collection of DJ and audio accessories at various price points, as well as a nice-looking speakerphone, and even a wireless scanner.

  • Ion

    Air Copy ($149) is a Wi-Fi-enabled scanner with a built-in rechargeable battery and the ability to create its own wireless network wherever you go. It's planned for late Q1/early Q2 availability.

  • Ion

    iDJ2Go Plus Lightning ($99) is planned to be the first DJ controller with a Lightning connector. Compact and impressive-looking for a small controller, it works with Algoriddim's djay, and other apps. Expect it in Q2 2013.

  • Ion

    Talking Point ($149) is a bowl-shaped conference call/speakerphone system, built deliberately with higher-quality components than the average speakerphone. A unidirectional microphone is inside, as is a large speaker, and it connects with Bluetooth devices wirelessly for calling. Expect it in Q2.

  • Ion

    iLP Lightning ($99) is a vinyl record player with Lightning and USB ports, enabling you to record vinyl albums to your choice of iOS devices or a computer.

  • Ion

    Clipster ($29) is a small, flippable speaker with Bluetooth wireless capabilities. It's one of the least expensive Bluetooth speakers we've seen, and designed for convenience with a single driver.

  • Ion

    Job Rocker ($199) is a ruggedized worksite Bluetooth speaker system built similarly to the company's earlier PA speakers. Monaural output is delivered with a tweeter and full-range driver, inside a wooden housing with metal and plastic handles.

  • Ion

    Party Rocker ($149) is similar to Job Rocker in shape, but trades away the ruggedization for a glowing, party-ready lightning system on the top, and a lower price point.

  • Ion

    Scratch2Go ($29) is a suction cup-based set of dials and switches built for use with Algoriddim's djay, placing physical and tactile controls atop the screen's virtual ones for greater tactility.
