IK Multimedia has announced iLoud, the first portable stereo speakers designed for musicians.
IK leveraged its 16 years of pro-audio engineering expertise, and its experience as the leading developer of mobile music creation apps and accessories, to design battery-operated speakers that combine superior power, pristine frequency response and amazing low end in an ultra-portable form factor that make them the perfect alternative to studio speakers for music creation and composition on the go.
The iLoud line consists of two models, iLoud and iLoud MINI, both of which provide musicians with sonic accuracy that’s on par with professional studio monitors, making it possible, for the first time, to compose, record, and mix from a mobile speaker system.
