$299.95 buys you one of the loudest portable speakers you'll find anywhere
This week IK Multimedia — the folks behind the iRig range of music accessories for mobile — launched their latest product, the iLoud. And true to its name, it's loud. We're not short on premium Bluetooth speakers to use with our Android devices, but if you really like to crank it up to 11, this might be right up your street. Peter Cohen from iMore got his hands on one, and is mightily impressed.
If you're just interested in listening to music, iLoud may not look impressive, but it earns its stripes to that end the second you fire it up. Bluetooth gets knocked by audiophiles for having low-quality sound reproduction, but iLoud is easily one of the best-sounding Bluetooth speakers I've found for this price and in this size.
It may look somewhat unassuming, but it's a 40 watt sound system that not only plays your music, but can be part of your own portable music performance. With the iRig input on the rear you're able to plug in your Bass or Guitar to it as well. At moderate sound level the iLoud promises 10 hours of use with the internal batteries, but crank it up and it'll soon reduce.
