iLoud Review

Nearly all of the IK Multimedia products I have reviewed in the past were primarily designed for musicians. While some of their hardware and applications may have uses beyond the intended performer market, the company’s design philosophy has always been to put the musician front and center. While the iLoud ($299.99) continues to embody those design guidelines, its hardware specifications and capabilities will definitely raise the interest of both musicians and non-musicians alike. Let’s take a closer look at why this is the case.

My bio underneath the articles I write for iPhone Life Magazine say "an iPhone is almost always attached to his hip." And that's true, but I'm not satisfied with most of the holsters I've used to date. They are typically plastic and prone to breaking, or they don't swivel, leading to inevitable jabs to my side or stomach when entering or exiting the car. I'm always on the lookout for something better.

"Have you ever tried to run with your iPhone in your pocket? It's more awkward than running with scissors. Your phone smacks against your thigh during every step or worse, falls out every few feet. Running with your device in hand is not much better. The headphone cord flops everywhere, and your hand is uncomfortable the entire time. The first step to taking your iPhone or iPod Touch on a run (please don't run with your iPad) is securing it to your body. Armbands can take a little getting used to (it feels slightly like running with a blood pressure cuff) but they are definitely much better than keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch in your pocket. Here are some solutions I've tried out..."

Here's a 2 Cases Comparison article: "There are two cases that protect your iPhone from just about anything: The Ballistic Hard Core and The Otterbox Defender.  So which to buy?  Both provide the best protection you can buy. The Ballistic provides five layers of protection. The Otterbox provides three. However, the three layers are all that's needed for most people.
