IK Multimedia launches iKlip Xpand and iKlip Xpand Mini

I reviewed the iKlip Stand for iPad and iPad Mini last year, and found them to be excellent solutions for the music studio. But then something happened – the iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina arrived and neither fit into the original stands. Oh well, that is just the way it works with accessories, right? Not anymore with iKlip Xpand!

The iKlip Xpand and iKlip Xpand Mini solve the issue of ever-changing tablet and phone sizes with a spring-loaded, microphone stand mounted bracket that can fit a wide range of device sizes.

The Mic Stand Support for Many Devices
At the heart of iKlip Xpand and iKlip Xpand Mini there is an innovative design that allows them to accommodate a wide range of device sizes. iKlip Xpand holds any iPad – including iPad Air and iPad mini – as well as Android or any other tablets with a screen size from 7″ to 12.1″.

iKlip Xpand Mini holds any iPhone, Android or other smartphone – including large format “phablets” – with a screen size from 3.5″ to 6″. The expandable clamps allow for the use of devices with carrying cases still attached. Both feature a rubberized “soft touch” gripping surface that ensures a firm hold that doesn’t scratch or mar your device’s surface. They also feature a ball joint system that allows for precise positioning at any rotation or angle.

Flexible Mic Stand Support

iKlip Xpand and iKlip Xpand Mini feature a universal mounting bracket for microphone stand poles that can be attached to microphone stands up to 1.2″ (30mm) in diameter. This provides positioning of the device on the main vertical stem or horizontal boom of most microphone stands. The ball joint positioning system allows users to orient their device at the perfect viewing angle for any performance situation, and users can easily rotate the device from portrait to landscape mode with just a quick twist of the wrist. Plus iKlip Xpand or iKlip Xpand Mini keep all of the device ports and buttons unobstructed for quick connection and adjustment on the fly.

Pricing & Availability

iKlip Xpand and iKlip Xpand Mini are available now from the IK Online store and soon from music and electronics retailers worldwide for $49.99 and $39.99 respectively.
