Reviewing iLoud in their August 2014 UK edition, MacWorld are highly impressed: "The iLoud is designed as a portable monitor, so it offers a level of accuracy you don't usually find in a portable Bluetooth speaker."
Here some of their key comments:
"The iLoud packs 40 total watts of power across four class-D amplifiers, giving it a lot more oomph than many comparable portable speakers offer."
"The iLoud is designed for use as a portable monitor, so it offers a level of accuracy you don’t usually find in a portable Bluetooth speaker."
"Dedicated tweeters offer precise, clear highs, midrange is strong without dominating, and the tight, present bass extends to lower frequencies than I expected."
MacWorld's final conclusion is: "For a portable speaker, it’s impressive. If you’re looking for a great portable Bluetooth speaker, the iLoud fits the bill ... for a musician in search of a portable studio monitor, the iLoud is a slam-dunk choice."
