Product Description

iLoud is the high-performance, battery-operated portable speaker for musicians and audiophiles. Rated at powerful 40W RMS, it provides up to five times the volume of comparably-sized speakers. Connect your smartphone, tablet, laptop or MP3 player, and get ready to be blown away. A speaker system needs to sound good at all volumes, and reproduce the music the way it was meant to sound. IK has leveraged its 16-year experience in creating tools for professional recording studios into developing iLoud's two-way, high-definition speaker system, onboard DSP, digital Class-D amplifier and high-performance enclosure. For the first time, you can enjoy studio-class sound and performance, comparable to professional monitors, in a surprisingly small package. ILoud connects via Bluetooth or to the headphone output of your smartphone, tablet or laptop. iLoud is also equipped with an iRig 1/4æ instrument input, so you can plug in a guitar, bass, keyboard or dynamic mic and jam along to your music using an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad for real-time effects processing.

First impressions to be updated later:

It's neutral! If you want more highs or lows, EQ 'em in and it'll play them... but what you get is far more faithful to the source than I ever would've expected from a $300 plastic box. This isn't a 'consumer-oriented' sound. It does a bit of 'loudness curve' at lower volumes but not much.

It's LOUD! Max volume is far far above anything I've heard from the size. It'll fill a normal size living room with sound. Anything bass heavy distorts a bit above 60-70% volume but it's not unlistenable and it occurs far far far louder than you'd ever want to listen in nearfield.

It's somewhat accurate! Again, not what I ever expected from a plastic box this size. The sound is decently weighted and has good extension for what it is. You won't be rattling walls and EDM/Rap/Hip-Hop folks will want more bass but it gets the goods across. Bass is controlled, there's a bit of a mid-bass bump but if you block the port in the rear that goes away (along with some of the bass extension).

It's got soundstaging in nearfield! Set it on the desk in front of you and you'll actually hear a good soundfield with reasonable imaging!

I suppose what says it best: I know I'm listening to a good piece of audio equipment when I stop playing "test tracks" and let whatever's on keep rolling. First time with a portable speaker I've ever done that.

Sadly, there's no AptX here, Bluetooth sound is still very good but if you listen to classical and jazz you're going to want to connect line-in as there's a loss of transparency and clarity in the mids and highs. Upside: The speaker is good enough that you hear this.

UPDATE: After using it a while longer there're a few things idiosyncrasies but nothing fatal.

I went through 3 other portable speakers before deciding on this one. First was the G-Boom for only $70. It had good sound for the money and water resistant. Bass was heavily distorted however. Then it was the UE Boom which had great volume and mid/high range but not much at all in the bass department. The battery life was not close to the claimed 15 hours, as I managed 4-6 hours on a charge at medium volumes. But a good speaker with alot of features overall. Then it was the BOSE Soundlink III which had great Bass, and pretty good mids and highs. Although a bit too much emphasis on Bass and lacking a bit in clarity. Something about the Bose sound that I found fatiguing after awhile. It had a solid battery of about 8 hours. Finally I tested the iLoud and found a Winner.

The Bass is actually decent even in the middle of a room if you adjust some equalizer settings. But it is much better if you set it 6 inches from a wall. It's claimed to have a bass response down to 50 Hz. Tested it with a Frequency Tone Generator and a Decibel meter. Determining the actual frequency response is tricky. There is a slight mid-bass dropoff of about 5 dB from 80 Hz to 70 Hz, then around 60 Hz it dips another 5 dB. It then maintains it's volume until around 50 Hz but still quite audible to 40 Hz. So this speaker can get very low at the expense of not being flat all the way through. This is why some complain of not having good bass at low volumes. But to be fair there are exactly Zero speakers in this size that have ever been able to stay flat through it's whole frequency range down to 50 Hz. Other portable speakers like the Bose Soundlink boost the low frequencies to achieve louder low-end, at the expense of the mid-range frequencies.

The IK-Multimedia iLoud is claimed to be a Hifi studioquality portable monitor. IK-Multimedia themselves published several videos on youtube showing off how much better and louder the iLoud sounds compared to other portable speakers like Bose Sounlink or UE Boombox.

I wanted to hear it by myself and as I know or owned nearly every respectable portable speaker on the market, I ordered one to give it a try.

I think that the iLoud sounds pretty good in most of its frequency range, especially treble is very clean, but for my taste it is missing bass.
There is a hint of bass, and particularly at higher levels it becomes a bit punchy too, but overall the lowest frequencies are just too much subdued to really make music sound enjoying. Due to the forthright representation of mids and treble, the missing bass becomes even more obvious. At low levels bass is hardly noticeable, it becomes quite balanced around 50% of volume, but the speaker starts to distort and sound harsh above 70%.

The iLoud is ineed very loud, but it distorts heavily at its top-volume. In reality it is only usable to about 60-70% depending on the music and the kind of mix.

The built quality is nice and the speaker is not too heavy for the given size, but overall it gives the impression of a very basic design, with a small and flimsy power-button at the back. I haven't tested the Mic-in, as you can only use it together with iOS apps. A guitar or mic plugged in is not directly heard through the speaker but rather sent to a connected iOS-device (the special cable is included). I have no idea if this will work with devices other than iOS.

I am not sure if the built in rechargeable battery is replaceable, as I haven't found any door or opening.
