Reviews and Problems with Altec Lansing inMotion Compact - IMT320
Showing 1-10 of 47
Broke - Bought 2 and neither lasted
19 September 2013
Summary: We purchased two of these for our kids, one for an iPod and one for an iPhone. Right out of the box we really liked the size (not so large that it takes up an entire shelf, and the sturdiness of the player.
Summary: I did some research before buying an iPod dock to replace my Athena dock that I had for years. This Altec looked good on paper. Took delivery, hooked it up, powered it up and put on a song. It sounded weak and tinny. I had it set up in my garage and it just didn't measure up in any respect.
Summary: It doesn't work with iPhone 4, and that is not clear from this page or the packaging or the product's web site. It probably has good sound, but when I plug in the iPhone 4 a message pops up on my screen that says "This Accessory Not Compatible with This Device" or something close to that.
Summary: I received the IMT320 and immediately tried to use it with my iPod and iPod Touch. Didn't work. Contacted Altec for support. They said I needed the latest software, which I didn't have. So, I downloaded the most recent iTunes software, and it still didn't work.
Summary: As an audiophile I never thought I'd say this, but this speaker is TOO good. I just got an iPhone 4S and wanted a dock for my desk at work to charge it, and figured may as well grab one with speakers too. My only gripe with it is that I can only listen to it at volume level 1.
Summary: Probably just repeating the words of others, but I still can't believe how loud this thing is. I've been using this for over a year, nearly everyday as my primary music player. It fills up my whole house. The sound quality is great. It seems to last all day on batteries.
Summary: Closing the clasp sucks, so buy a rubber band -- you will need it, because the clasp is too far away from the closing button. Works great and great speakers, but with the rubber band, duck tape, or rope it looks cruddy. Once again, the customer is the quality control.
Summary: I received this as a gift last christmas (2010) but about 6 months later, it decided it didn't want to work with my Iphone 4 anymore....It first decided to stop charging my phone while playing, which I could deal with...
Summary: I recently bought this because I was in need of something to play music with while at work...I work at a kitchen so you really need something small that can really get some sound going...we had an old iPod dock that sounded ok...it was not the best quality in the world but it was do-able..
Summary: After owning this Altec Lansing speaker dock for 6 months, the volume control and shut off button stopped working. It would only operate at full max volume and I had to unplug the thing to shut it off. You get what you pay for, and this speaker dock is cheaply made.
