IK Multimedia iLoud – Hands-On First Impressions


IK Multimedia iLoud

Earlier today I posted about IK Multimedia’s new iLoud Bluetooth speaker system. This is their entry into the portable speaker market, but with a twist – rather than just releasing yet-another Bluetooth speaker, they designed an audio system with musicians in mind. I have had a chance for a first look, and it is awesome. Check out my first-impressions video!

The main features highlighted by IK multimedia include:
? Loud and Clear
? Ultra-Portability
? Wired and Wireless
? Plug and Play Convenience

What impressed me from the start was how portable and light iLoud was … well, honestly that was the SECOND thing that impressed me. If it wasn’t for the tremendous sound coming out of the speaker, nothing else would have mattered.

But once I heard iLoud in action, I noticed everything else. The ease of connecting my iPad using the 3.5mm cable, or plugging in a guitar directly to the 1/4″ jack; the ease of pairing devices to iLoud over Bluetooth made getting started easy, and allowed all of us to take turns sharing our music.

Since first charging iLoud I haven’t plugged it back in – there are warning light patterns on the front that tell you when you get close to running out of battery – but after at least a dozen hours of use I haven’t seen anything yet.

You can head to the IK Multimedia iLoud page for more information or to buy your own.

Here is my initial impressions video – which sadly fails to truly capture the audio power and bass response of the system. You can look for a more complete review coming soon!

As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
