Mobile speakers tend to invoke feelings of sound or build quality questions. IK Multimedia has built their entire business on high quality multimedia equipment for musicians. Today they announced their latest products in the iLoud and iLoud MINI, both being mobile speakers with studio monitor quality.
The iLoud comes powered with 40W RMS of power while the MINI comes with 12W. They are designed to produce accurate reproduction of all genres of music ranging from rock and hip-hop to classical and acoustic. Not only can you use it to listen to music, you can use it to play music as well by connecting a guitar, bass, or microphone. It can also work in conjunction with their AmpliTube and VocaLive apps for realtime vocal effects.
The iLoud is about the size of an iPad while the MINI is roughly the size of an iPad mini and can fit easily in a laptop bag. Both come with a Li-Ion rechargeable battery and work via Bluetooth along with a stereo 1/8” mini-jack. The iLoud will be priced at $299.99 and the iLoud MINI $199.99 with both being available in the second quarter of this year.
