Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 iM207
20 October 2008
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: 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
