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

 

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.

The Liberatone Loop’s design makes it a pleasant aesthetic addition to the modern home, and will likely attract attention and discussion from visitors. Serving a background role, it will provide sufficient sound at a dinner party or social event. But...

Review: Libratone Loop

 

Meet Libratone's latest speaker. It's pretty, it's fuzzy, and it sounds fantastic — but only when AirPlay cooperates.

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. 0 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.

Review: Libratone Loop AirPlay speaker

 

Danish audio firm Libratone adds to its collection of high-end speakers with the Loop, a round and relatively slim unit that produces some of the best treble fidelity we've heard from a product its size.

Ribbon tweeters offer unparalleled treble fidelity ; Wide, clean soundstage ; Effective use of DSP technology

Weak mid-range reproduction ; Not as powerful as other in-class speakers ; Wooly design is not for everyone

If your taste in music leans toward bass-thumping beats with an over-saturated mid-range, Loop is likely not for you. The speaker's design lends itself more to tight, restrained listening than raw output.

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...

Libratone Loop review - Pocket-lint

 

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

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

Our experience with the Libratone Loop has been a rollercoaster ride from frustration through to full-on aural pleasure and then back to the start again. But that's because we’ve had AirPlay issues - something you might not experience. That being the...

Libratone Loop review

 

Given its mediocre sound quality, the expensive Libratone Loop left us disappointed

The Libratone Loop is certainly flexible when it comes to getting music to the speaker, although the most convenient is undeniably AirPlay. Considering the high price, we would have expected better sound quality. Unless you’re particularly taken by its...

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,...
