When it comes to sound, size does matter. Every on-the-go audio connoisseur struggles with this problem, as most pocket-sized speakers provide pocket-sized audio. That's why we're so impressed by iLoud, a powerhouse portable speaker, which Gizmodo readers can grab for it's lowest price ever – $239 – 20% off.
Though still pricey, this is a solid deal on one of the best bluetooth speakers on the market:
With 40 watts of power at its disposal, the iLoud can pump up 2-3 times louder than its rivals, but the sound quality of this thing is what will grab your attention, thanks to its tuned bass-reflex and high-end 24 bit DSP. Also, the iLoud weighs less than 3 pounds, and it's battery lasts 10 hours, making it truly portable. Lastly, the ¼″ input with built-in iRig circuitry means that musicians can jam pretty much anywhere. Even at $239, that's some serious boom for your buck.
Here's a run-down of the iLoud's highlights…
- 40 Watts of Beat-Crushing Power – Sound you can't miss with a 40W RMS bi-amped 4-way speaker + bass reflex port.
- Axe-Compatible – ¼″ mic/guitar input and iRig circuit turn the iLoud into a portable amp when used with iOS music creation apps.
