Pros

The IK Multimedia iLoud Micro continues to enjoy wide acclaim, surpassing the expectations of many users with its great balance of portability and clarity. Most users agree that it has a flat and clear sound that makes for a good mixing monitor that's ideal for small studios. Reviewers report that it works well in various scenarios, from basic vocal recording to mixing of orchestrated music.

Cons

As expected, there are some who found the volume and low-end lacking, but this is to be expected given its size. There are also a few users who noted that the cabinets do not feel as solid as they would like them to be.
