    Small monitor BIG sound

    What an amazing sound for a small monitor. Great stereo imaging and bass response. I was looking for another set of reference monitors to go with my Genelecs and these really did the trick. I guess now I see why guys like Tom Lord Alge and Dave Pensado are giving these the rave reviews. Not only do they sound great but the are true reference monitors!

    Those sound very good, nice highs, mids and great bass.
    Work great in my small studio.
    Happy with the purchase :)

    If you need a small set of portable speakers...buy these.. you will be amazed. Nice balance, solid bass
    real good imaging. Dead quiet on power up....I've run a computer, synth and a music player thru these and they all sound great. Not sure how they pulled it off but they did. (PS...I'm pretty picky about quality audio).

    I agree with all the glowing reviews

    OMG. I'm totally satisfied to make these my main reference monitors now and can also now take my favorite speakers ever anywhere easily. How convenient is that? I am beyond impressed with the depth, clarity, transparency, balance, punchy warm low end and power of these little speakers and consider them one of the best purchases I ever made. I really hesitated buying speakers I couldn't try first but have no hesitation to add my own glowing review now too. Awesome job IK!

    A big punch from a little form factor!

    I'm very impressed with these little beasts! For the size and price, these are hard to beat. The highs, mids, and low end are all there especially when you're within the sweet spot. Everything sounds great and clean. That's really all I need to say.

    I'm disabled and needed something as small as possible that produces robust sound. These are perfect for me and my small audio setup.

    Thank you for your ridiculously good service and great financing options, Sweetwater!

    Size does matter

    Extremely maneuverable, disproportionately voluminous. The three EQ settings in the back offer quick clues to tired ears. The cable that elaborately connects this pair to each other is thick enough to tie a boat with.

    Still sractching my head...

    I bought these mainly just to pack in a suitcase and have a decent pair of monitors to write on while traveling away. These monitors are so good, so detailed and so responsive that they have become my reference monitor of choice in my studio and my mixing monitors while away.

    I'm still amazed at how tight the low end is and how clear the mids are. I didn't expect them to be a mixing monitor, but they are indeed that.

    For Mini Monitors... You will not believe the sound of these!
    So perfect for mixing and working while on the go.
    I have heard full size monitors that don't throw the low end like these.
    Very Impressive!!

    Highly Recommend!

    One word review

    I just fired these up after receiving a pair earlier this week. Having done my research I expected these to sound okay. But I never expected them to sound this good, especially given the small size. The highs are well defined and smooth and the bass is much much better than even expected. It truly does deliver a surprising punch. I purchased these for my mobile rig but they sound as good as the larger speakers in my main studio. I am truly happy with this purchase. Kudos to IK for a really nice product.

    So, my one word review?

    Small Size...BIG Sound!

    I chose these from a need to get away from headphone mixing for our mobile rig. Lugging around big studio monitors can be done but it gets old quickly.Then you run to your headphones. While my headphones are great,who wants to wear them for long periods of time and still not beable to trust what you hear. The IK Multimedia iLoud Micro Monitors pack a big sound in a small size. I had the volume at zero and still had to turn them down. The only thing that comes close is the Bose technology. The built in room EQ and fold out desk stands are a big plus.
    #1 PRO: Huge,wide and clear sound from small units about the size of your palm
    #1 CON: The Bluetooth function is great but starts fading at around 12 feet away from signal source.
    #1 SECRET: Pair these with IK Multimedia ARC software to get the best pro studio monitor performance.

    Excellent micro speakers with pro sound

    I'm giving these 5 stars, not because they are the world's greatest speaker, but because they may be the world's greatest speaker in this size and weight. They really do sound good, very even response, and much more bass than seems physically possible from something this small. Absolutely perfect for traveling, and just what I was looking for, but even better than I expected. I hear bass down to 47Hz, and the mids and highs are clear, focused, and revealing. I'm a 40+ year audio professional, and this is a professional product in my opinion. Much better than mixing on headphones when away from the studio, and great just for listening to music while doing other things. Thanks Bob M. at Sweetwater for hooking me up, I am extremely happy with this purchase.

    Amazing Performance for the Size and Weight!

    They have excellent frequency balance, low distortion, reasonable bass response (-3db at 55 Hz) and will play at high SPLs (low dynamic compression up to about 92 dB SPL, but can play as loud as 100 to102dB SPL at 1.5 meters.

    They have a much smaller "sweet-spot" than my KH120s or LSR-308s, but positioned properly sound fine
    The total system weight: Speakers, external power supply and all connecting cables is 5 lbs - 3oz.

    update from first post

    I got my ARC2 up and running and now I'm completely blown away!! No matter how flat these companies claim that their speakers are, put them in a little bedroom studio and there goes the "flat". My ARC2 now lets me hear the depth of these bad boy's. Now I'm completely blown away by the tight bottom that was missing before ARC2

    with Arc2 in place, these are now all I need along with my cans and Sonarworks correction software

    I'm hooked!

    Way better than they should be

    At this size, at this price, these little monitors are above any reasonable expectation in performance.

    I have one (very minor) gripe, and one (very minor) heads-up for other purchasers.

    The gripe (and the reason I'm not giving five stars) is that below about 50Hz, they're basically silent. If you need that, get a sub.

    The heads-up is that yes, they have those very convenient threaded holes in the base to accommodate mic stands, but they're euro-standard mic stand holes, so if you get (as I did) american standard mic stands, you'll need an adapter. Not a big deal, and quite cheap from Sweetwater, but just one added item.

    Other than that, great little devices! I've recommended them elsewhere, and I'll recommend them here.

    Studio Monitors

    I used to own a pair of KRK Rokit 8 G3's, and these little guys are every bit as good and take up way less space1 Perfect addition to my little home studio

  • from Tampa October 7, 2016

    a different type of studio monitor

    Let me first put this in context. I'm a home recording guy in a small room with a fair amount of room treatment. I have a family that can't stand hearing me mix my stuff over and over. I mix mostly on headphones and will use these to check my mixes. Ok, enough background. When I first started listening, I was not a happy camper. I was used to hearing my HS5's that I recently sold. Once my ears started to adjust, I'm loving them more and more. I love the small footprint and close proximity mixing. I can use them comfortably without complaints from the family. The stereo image is great and frequency balance is very good. Don't compare these to larger monitors because this is a different animal. I tried to get ARC2 measurements, but for some reason, It won't work on these? I have a message out to IK. I still hear just a tad of frequency imbalance because of my room, but nothing like with the larger speakers. Flipping to mono is a great way to work on a mix also. I really don't need the ARC2 with these, but I would like the different simulations that ARC2 provides. I'm very please with the full frequency range given the small size. Like I said, my headphones with Sonarworks eq has the final say on my mix.
    Well done; everything that I hoped for!!

    These monitors are great for a small project studio and travel. I use these in my studio away from my main studio and they deliver trustworthy reference with a dynamic sonic near field experience. A nice rugged build makes them road worthy (with care) for hotel and on site locations (thanks to the bluetooth). They come with nice sturdy cables and power supply. I suggest these monitors to the producer on the go and in small studio applications.

    Great for their size/space constraints

    Very happy with them overall. I'm a hobbyist/record my own stuff & don't have the space for any kind of studio or room treatment. So these work well being able to just set them up to mix wherever. They are quite flat to my ears & I'm already getting better mixes than just using cans like I was prior. The mixes I do on these have translated well to other listening sources. Great bass response for the size, & they can get loud but I never really need them super loud. I wish my amp sims sounded a little better when playing through them, but overall these met my expectations & I'm very happy with them. Bonus is Bluetooth for playing music around the house.
