OVERVIEW

Portable speaker for musicians.

Studio Monitor Sound - Everywhere You Go
Of all of the portable full-range speakers in the market, none of them were developed with musicians in mind - until now. Meet iLoud - the first portable speaker for musicians. IK Media has created a portable speaker that combines superior power with spectacular audio resolution and amazing low end. And with over 16 years of pro-audio engineering expertise plus IK's position as the leading developer of mobile music-creation apps and accessories, this design concept is in very good hands. For the first time, musicians can have a portable speaker that sounds like a studio monitor, and allows them to create high-quality compositions and accurate mixes on the go. So grab your iPhone or iPad and just rip out one brilliant tune after another with iLoud.

Big Sound, Small Footprint
As its name implies, iLoud is much louder than your average portable speaker. With a full 40 Watts of sonic power, iLoud sounds two to three times louder than comparable-sized speakers. It provides a richer, more powerful sound for any type of music style from rock to hip-hop to electronic music. It allows you to reproduce your music - in every possible mobile situation - as accurately as you would in the comfort of your studio. Years of pro-audio experience and innovative engineering solutions have contributed to our ability to produce a speaker this powerful in such a small enclosure. The sound quality and fidelity of iLoud will absolutely blow you away.

Loud and Clear
Together with its high-power output, iLoud also distinguishes itself for its hi-fi sound, which can't be obtained from your generic, off-the-shelf, fancy speaker. Thanks to its time-aligned 2-way system, precision custom neodymium loudspeakers, tuned bass-reflex, non-resonant enclosure and DSP processing, iLoud offers an ultra-accurate frequency response, exceptional low-end and stereo imaging that can't be found in any other portable speakers in its category. With iLoud you can be confident that any type of music will be reproduced with the accuracy normally found only on high grade studio monitors. Even highly demanding sound textures like you find in classical music, jazz or acoustic, will come to life with a precision and musicality that you've never heard before on a speaker of this size.

Plug and Play
Here's where it gets interesting. Grab your guitar and plug it into iLoud, plug in your mobile device, launch your favorite mobile app like AmpliTube or VocaLive and start jamming and recording. iLoud features a built-in iRig circuit for directly connecting a guitar or a dynamic microphone, and allowing you to take advantage of the real time sound processing of your favorite mobile apps.

Ultra Portability
Not only does iLoud offer the characteristics typical of a high-end system, but it packs them in an ultra-small enclosure that can be easily carried anywhere in a laptop bag or a backpack. It has the overall dimensions of an iPad and is only 6 cm (2.3") deep, and features a tilted shape for optimal listening on a desktop. Thanks to its long-lasting battery, iLoud is the ideal speaker to be carried around by mobile musicians, whether they're composing, recording, or they simply want to listen to high-quality music anytime and everywhere.

Untether Your Life with Wireless Purity
iLoud is not only perfect for monitoring your creations, but you can stream audio to it via Bluetooth, creating a perfect wireless portable speaker system. It gives you the convenience of a cableless connection, together with the performance of a hi-fi speaker, and offers a superior listening experience at home, with your friends, and on the go.

      Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

      I own several Bluetooth speakers and they're all junk. This thing is great. Loud and clear and at high vol the battery lasts about nine hours. Bass, mids and highs all come through. Perhaps I'm new to it but I downloaded Amplitube and tried playing guitar through it. Way too many "to pay for" effects and amps. I really didn't buy it for the guitar. Bottom line, if you want a great Bluetooth speaker that won't let you down buy this one!

      Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

      Excellent! Be advised, you can not just plug-and-play with a 1/4 inch cable. The signal has to go out an effects Loop. Final interface is an 1/8 inch Apple (trrs) Jack. You can plug straight into the 1/8 jack. You need a 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch cable or an adapter. Turn on Do Not Disturb when using AmpliTube, otherwise the sound completely shuts off when you get a notification.

      Impressive sound. Workable DAW mixing monitor in tiny spaces

      By Slide Guitarist

      from Manhattan, NYC

      About Me Guitarist for 40+ years, Project recording for 4 years, Tone-obsessive

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Compact, monitor-like sound, robust volume level
      • Compact, more portable than 2 separate monitors
      • Fewer wires than separate stereo monitors
      • Gets plenty loud
      • Metal grille attractive
      • Monitor-like sound for mixing in tiny space
      • Nice construction
      • Rugged rubber padded base, stable kickstand

      Cons

      • Does not display volume level
      • On-off switch inconvenient (tiny+hard to reach)
      • Vulnerable to damage without hard case

      Best Uses

      • DAW mixing monitor for tiny studio space
      • Play guitar amp simulation plugins
      • Practice or small performance w backing tracks

      Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

      This is not for everyone, but if you need a powered stereo speaker that takes up little space, sounds great and can be taken along, this is great. The sound is excellent. Plenty of volume, and quite analytical--you can hear most elements of the music distinctly and clearly, very much like a studio monitor. Volume-wise, it really fills an average living room. I have three primary applications for the iLoud, to (1) play backing tracks for practice, and it keeps up with my tube amp set at pretty loud practice volume; (2) as a mixing monitor with Cubase DAW on my tiny apartment computer desk. I don't have room for even a compact, separate pair of monitors, so being able to quickly set it up/store it away, as a one-piece unit, without the tangle and hookup of extra wires, is a huge plus, and it sounds much better than I expected for project mixing in this environment and in near field setup, the stereo separation is acceptable; by using the iLoud together with various headphones, earbuds and hi fi speakers, I can get impressive mixes in my tiny space; and (3) for monitoring guitar amp simulation plugins, especially Bias Amp. I have many guitar amps-large and small, but the iLoud with amp sims works and sounds great, when I need it. The build is nice, but if really taking it around, I suggest a foam-lined hard case, since an unprotected iLoud could be easily blemished, dented or damaged. I wish the on/off switch was more conveniently located (it's tiny, and on the bottom, in the rear). I also wish the volume LED gave some indication of level--there is no way to visually tell how loudly it is set. I get around that by using volume controls on the sound source device (e.g., using the monitor output knob on my interface or volume control on a PC or tablet) rather than the iLoud. I got a great buy on my iLoud as a mint b-stock item. Not sure I'd pay the full list price for this, since I think it's a bit steep.

          Few electronics products ever exceed my expectations. This is one has. I use it in the yard, garage, camping, etc. to Bluetooth music from my phone. I hook it up to Line 6 Sonic Port XT and have a great practice amp. For its size, it does get very loud. The sound quality is very good. I own an expensive Fender Deluxe tweed with two Pedaltrain Pro II's full of boutique pedal. However, I often go to this simple "I rig". Play anywhere. The battery charge lasts a long time. Great product. I don't say that often.

              Worked for 5 minutes and haven't gotten the replacement yet. Hopefully this thing will live up to the hype. Do yourself a favor and buy a high quality cable straight away b/c the one it comes with is garbage. Using as part of an ultra portable guitar rig together with an iPad for a teaching gig
