Libratone Loop

 

Looks attractive. Gets loud. Clear, detailed-sounding midrange performance.

Distorting bass and overly bright highs with some genres of music. Stand can buzz against the table with heavy bass.

The Libratone Loop is an attractive-looking AirPlay speaker, but at $500 it needs to do more than just look pretty, and it just doesn't sound as good as it should.

Libratone Loop review

 

Copenhagen-based Libratone makes some of the most interesting and unique wireless speakers you'll find in today's marketplace – and that's saying something. The company's small family of speakers are as spendy as they are stylish, with a Scandinavian...

Very detailed treble ; Clear and simple wireless play ; Attractive, eye-catching design ; Airplay and DLNA support with or without Wi-Fi

Treble is too aggressive overall ; Midrange flat and underpowered

The Loop’s design makes it a pleasant aesthetic addition to the modern home, but its sharp upper register and flat midrange put it far from the kind of eloquent and balanced sound we expect in a hi-fi device.

Something in the AirPlay Tonight

 

One look and you can imagine it as a living room centerpiece. Simple setup for an AirPlay speaker. Total sonic clarity, even at high volumes. Changeable cover colors. Easy to stand up or to mount on a wall.

AirPlay remains unreliable, especially in areas with lots of wireless traffic in the air. Two-second delay for non-iTunes playback. $500 is a big price tag for a single speaker.

DSP optomization and digital amplification

No remote

The Libratone Loop combines great sound with great looks. Having both more than justifies the $499.95 retail price.

Libratone Loop Review (AirPlay Compatible)

 

It would be fair to say that for a large number of us our primary music playback device is a smartphone and likely with earphones. Gone are the days of dedicated music systems, or even having our PC as a primary music device. Of course there are times...

We've had something of a love-hate relationship with the Libratone Loop. This circular-fronted speaker has a distinctive, quirky design and - even though we've ended up with the grey finish for review instead of one of the more exciting colour options...

Plenty of bass, sounds really good, quirky design and colour options give it a distinctive edge

No Bluetooth, setup and AirPlay playback hit and miss, expensive, driver rattling, top-end can be harsh

A wireless speaker with plenty of style and AirPlay support

Expert review by:

Libratone Loop

 

The Libratone Loop is an attractive-looking AirPlay speaker, but at $500 it needs to do more than just look pretty, and it just doesn't sound as good as it should.

A $500 speaker can be expected to offer a certain level of performance. The nicest thing I can say about the Libratone Loop is that it subverts expectations, an act which I can at least philosophically appreciate. Like any good 13-inch-wide speaker,...
