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:

    This speaker is great for its objective of premium bluetooth music playback in a portable unit. It is louder than any other bluetooth speaker in its price range. It also presents a much more accurate and almost "live-like" play vs other portable bluetooth speakers that either distort or overly compress the music to the point where it all muddies together.

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    This speaker works very well, so far, as an amp for my electric uke. One drawback is that the speaker makes a crackling noise when it is being moved. Perhaps the mini-plug does not make as secure a connection as a phone-plug would. Also the volume knob needs a textured surface to grip to make turning it easier and it would be helpful to have some way to tell how much volume range there is, like an illuminated digital readout.

    Picked this up today - returning it tomorrow...

    By jeff breakstone

    from River vale, NJ

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    I really wanted to like this speaker, but the one thing I really expect in any speaker is for it NOT to crackle and pop like crazy when i plug in the headphone cable into my iPad and iPhone. I have an iPad Air and an iPhone 5s and first of all, the the included cable will not fit in to either device if they have the factory leather cases on. It will "fit", but it will not make a reliable connection. It crackles and pops like crazy, or it simply won't make a connection at all. How IK engineers missed this critical problem is beyond me... When I removed the cases, it STILL crackles and pops like crazy!! If you just slightly move the wire or the iPhone/ipad, it keeps making noise. - sorry, but this is unacceptable... And if the volume is up, it sounds REALLY bad! I have no idea why this speaker doesn't have a fully digital Lightning cable connection to newer ios devices. My old irig was noisy and this it too... I have an Apogee Jam that has a digital connection to ios devices - that is 2+ years old - why is IK's brand new speaker still forcing the user to plug the speaker into an analog headphone jack?? Stupid.... I got it to work with Amplitube on one guitar, but not on my other guitar, I was unable to get any sound coming out of the speaker. I think perhaps the cable I was using had a slightly shorter tip and was not making contact inside the iloud?? Still, I have never had a problem like that with any other amp. I have had problems with Aplitube anyway - sometimes there is sound, sometimes none. I have tried iRig and Apogee Jam - with and without the internal ipad speaker I have had problems trying to diagnose - but that's a different review. I hate the volume knob on iLoud. You have no idea what it is set at by looking at it. It did seem to get kind of load, but it believe the base was seriously lacking. I thought everything sounded harsh. Yes, it is not a full size speaker, but it was expecting a lot more from a speaker called "iLoud". So I bought this speaker specifically because it had a guitar jack and was supposed to work well with Amplitube. It does not... The headphone jack connection is simply unacceptable. I am returning it tomorrow and will probably just get a Big Jambox, use iRig/Apogee Jam with a headphone cable. Very disappointed...

    Great speaker!

    By Mike Flander

    from Elk River, MN

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    I use mine as a portable speaker for general music playing, and also as a monitor/portable pa for acoustic guitar. This thing is loud. Sound great. Have had no issues with bluetooth. No rattles. Just a great sounding speaker that is very portable. There is quite a bit more bass than you would expect. While it won't rattle windows, it is some of the best bass of smaller speakers I have heard. Very clean, not muddy. The built in IRig is the downside. Very noisy. For just capturing ideas and general playing, it works. But for portable studio work, it is unacceptable. I bought it expecting this, and will use an apogee interface to solve that problem. I wanted this just for the speaker itself. The other con is that there is no headphone out. To use the IRig portion, you have to use the headphone plug of your ipad/iphone. I travel quite a bit and sometimes want to play out loud, and sometimes have to play quietly(late night hotel room). Having an option for headphones would make it 5 stars. Seems silly that it isn't there. All in all, great purchase. Will be used a lot. And will set the standard for future purchases.

    Learning guitar and this is my favorite purchase so far!

    By Lizzie Adamson

    from Houston, TX

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    I have been learning guitar for a year now and just got an electric Les Paul for my birthday. I needed an amp, but didn't want something heavy and found out Fender has an app for my iPad. I downloaded AmpliTube Fender and found out the same company makes a BlueTooth Speaker with an input for my guitar! I plugged it in and it sounds AWESOME! So many FX and they all are LOUD. Its louder than most of the small, cheap amps you see around and I can use it for my Android phone to play music with! Its small and light, which makes it easy for me to carry around. It even fits in my purse!

    Great for bass jamming!

    By Gene Ryan

    from Nashville, TN

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    I use the iLoud with GarageBand on my iPad and it sounds stellar! The notes cleanly ring and this sucker gets louder than I'd ever need it to be. I mainly use it in my living room and kitchen for casual listening and then on the go when I feel like jamming. I make beats with FL Studio and it sounds great with it too, best part being the built in iRig so I can plug my bass in and record ideas on the go or even just for playback as another set of studio monitors to check my mixes on. Plus its the only Bluetooth wireless speaker I've found that lets you connect to devices to it. I compared it to a few others and it blew them all away in sound and size. Well worth the price and will sound far better than you'd ever believe for its size.

    Amazing bass for such a small box!

    By Gabe Galvez

    from Los Angeles, CA

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    I was blown away by the iLoud. The bass is solid and goes really low, but the best thing about this is how LOUD it can get. Like, REALLY loud! I was able to plug my guitar in and record it with the free app on my iPhone and be able to use it with my MacBook wirelessly with BlueTooth for Netflix, YouTube and to play music in iTunes. I even used it with GarageBand to mix my own recordings. The sound on this easily rivals my old BX5 studio monitors and is far smaller. It fits in my backpack along with my laptop and isn't bulky at all. I LOVE that it has a built in battery too that last a really long time. Every person that has heard it is blown away by how loud and great it sounds for being so small!

    Should Have been better

    By RONALD TICHY

    from Meriden,CT

    Comments about IK Multimedia iLoud Wireless Bluetooth Portable Studio Monitor:

    I bought this expecting some great sound and not even close. The first thing that I notice is that the unit "Rattles" when you turn up the volume and I do not mean all the way up either-just half way. Checked all the bass adjustments and none of those are turned all the way up either. Tried it with using bluetooth and cable direct-still rattles. What a BIG let down for me. As I have tried many other small audio players of this size and none of them seem to rattle like this one dose. Got any ideas IK that I might try to prevent the rattle? Defective unit maybe? RNR
