Summary: The Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 is a great choice for any frequent flier, thanks to its travel-friendly design, low cost, and versatility--in the realm of portable speakers, this one's an excellent value.
Pros: The Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 is compact, stylish, inexpensive, and versatile. It's an incredible value for a portable speaker.
Cons: Like many speakers of this size, the Orbit-MP3 suffers from hollow-sounding audio. The power ring feels fragile.
Excerpt: (1 items) For $30, the Orbit-MP3 is a very nice compact speaker you can take with you around town or on trips. Its sound quality is much better than other portable speakers in this price range. I wouldn't mind paying a little more for a power adapter; instead, I'll just have to remember to turn it off.

Excerpt: (2 items) Altec Lansing’s $30 Orbit-MP3 is a portable speaker that’s small enough to carry with you in a bag or backpack, and its sound quality is surprisingly good for such a small device. Measuring 3.63 inches in diameter, the Orbit-MP3 uses a 3.5mm plug to connect to your iPod, iPhone (the plug fits into the iPhone's recessed jack), or any device with a headphone jack (Altec Lansing also includes a 2.5mm adapter).
Pros: Portable, Sturdy, Great overall audio quality
Cons: Needs better on/off indicator, Battery power only
Excerpt: Everyone into PCs and multimedia knows exactly who Altec Lansing is, and their wide range of products speaks for them. More often than not, these guys have impressed us with their designs, and decent sound capabilities for the prices they quote. Today I feel the Orbit iMT237 that we are about to review will be interesting to say the least. Design and Features Calling it just Ultra portable, will be absolutely befitting.
Excerpt: In my review of the Altec Lansing inMotion MAX, I said it was serious sound for serious uses. Well, the Orbit MP3 is exactly the opposite. It is a small, round, single speaker for those times where complete portability is a must. All you do is plug the Orbit into the iPod or iPhone using the 3.5 mm phone jack, turn it on and that’s it! It runs on 3 AAA batteries which Altec Lansing says will last 24 hours.
A great portable speaker for iPods, MP3 Players and notebooks
