"Extraordinary sound quality for their size and weight"

Long-time AmpliTube user and IK devotee, Ace, couldn't wait to tell us about his iRig HD 2: "My iRig HD 2 is great for those moments on tour when I want to warm up or practice backstage before a show, as well as quickly plugging into my laptop anywhere anytime to record high quality audio guitar parts."
"We’d definitely describe the sound as natural and flat, with very little colouration."
"The DSP found on the iLoud Micro Monitor definitely helps contribute to this full sound, as we doubt normal desktop speakers of this size would be able to replicate that level of clarity."
"Every amp tone really is incredible and an impressive range of sounds can be created"
"AmpliTube 4 wins against its competitors with the sheer versatility that the software has to offer, with the cabinet section especially adding to the authenticity of tones available. From jazzy clean to full-on dirty rock and metal, AmpliTube 4 offers it all."
"It sounds really powerful while remaining natural at the same time"
"What comes out of the headphones and speakers is pretty impressive. We had not expected such a great sound. It really sounds powerful while remaining natural at the same time, both through headphones as well as through connected speakers."

"With iRig HD 2, IK Multimedia is now for the first time unlocking the complete AmpliTube application, providing full versions of AmpliTube 4 for Mac, PC, iPhone, and iPad, with all features and all of the basic gear...a nice bonus!

Pro Video Coalition's “First Look” review from Allan Tépper
“I am again honored to be among the first tech consultants/journalists to receive another innovative product from IK Multimedia...I can personally attest that with the iLoud Micro Monitor evaluation set I tested, I heard more detail in my audio playback than with any other powered speaker system I have ever had in my own studio to date. They were able to deliver smooth and extended high frequencies, an exceptionally open, focused midrange and a solid, controlled low end, all of which I got to hear with my own ears...I can’t think of anything I would change."

GuitarChalk’s review of IK’s sequel to the most popular guitar & bass interface & modeling software
“When I was testing the iRig HD 2, I was able to pull up AmpliTube Mesa/Boogie on my laptop, put on a set of headphones and play through a Mesa/Boogie Triple rectifier amp model without bothering anyone…the tone I got out of the system was absolutely phenomenal. Every effect I used sounded great through the iRig HD 2's interface. It's useful, valuable and relevant to today's guitar player."
Logic Pro Expert’s review of IK’s new near-field reference studio monitors
"The bass is tight and solid sounding...the high-end is crisp and clean sounding...they sound impressive. What impresses me the most though is the clarity and detail in the midrange; which is rare to find in monitors of this size and in this price range. Their design is robust and sturdy, they are trustworthy mixing references, and they are incredible value. They are so useful in so many different contexts; it is impossible to go wrong with these."
Accordo magazine's staff were blown away by iRig Acoustic: "Easy to use. The pickup and the app's sound quality is really high. It takes zero space... the sound is just gorgeous."

Whether you are a mobile broadcaster, mobile filmmaker, or whatever kind of content creator you happen to be, the iKlip A/V by IK Multimedia is an excellent addition to help capture clearer and cleaner audio of your voice on your mobile device."
