Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo iML247

PC Magazine
18 October 2011
  • Conclusion: The Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo iML247 is very affordable and very portable, but its sound is what you would expect from a $50 speaker system, with poor bass response and distortion at high volumes.
  • Pros: Easily portable, packable design. USB connector means no need for batteries or charger. Affordably priced.
  • Cons: Audio quality is what you'd expect from small, cheap speakers—weak, with no bass. No aux input or 3.5mm connectors for iPods. No volume controls.

Altec Lansing IML247 Orbit USB stereo

CNET
13 October 2011
  • Summary: While the sound quality of the Altec Lansing Orbit Stereo speakers isn't likely to blow you away, the travel-friendly and affordable USB speakers do sound significantly better than the internal audio found on most laptops.
  • Pros: The Altec Lansing Orbit Stereo IML247 PC speakers snap together for travel, cost less than $50, have a single USB cord for power and audio, and play louder and sound significantly better than the internal speakers on most laptops.
  • Cons: The speakers sound crunchy (distort) at higher volumes and the bass is pretty thin. There's no volume control on the speakers. And the lack of a 3.5mm input means that you can't use these with any non PC/Mac audio devices, such as an iPod or smartphone.

Review: Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo speakers

Geek.com
13 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The majority of the speakers that are built into laptops are not very good, which is why consumer audio companies continue to come out with speakers for those of us who are sick of hearing our music played out of the tinny stock ones. The problems with accessory speakers are considerable though: most of them are cumbersome, they often take up too much desk space, and aren’t that easy to use while you’re traveling, or even to move from room to room.

Praktiske reisehøyttalere

komputer.no
2 February 2012
  • Summary: Høyttalerne kobles til USB-porten, og det er en lang nok kabel mellom dem til at de kan settes opptil 60 centimeter fra hverandre og gi deg den riktige stereotrekanten. En liten beskyttelsespose gjør at de ikke blir ripet opp i vesken. De er bygget i solid plast og har en metallfot som gir dem riktig vinkel på bordet. I motsetning til andre høyttalere er det ingen drivere å installere.
  • Pros: Detaljert lyd, Godt stereoperspektiv
  • Cons: Begrenset bass

Altec Lansing IML247: Portabler Stereo-Lautsprecher mit USB-Stromversorgung

CNET
16 August 2011
  • Summary: Wer schon einmal den Lieblingsfilm auf dem Notebook anschauen wollte, der weiß, wie schnell einem eine solche Audio-Performance die Stimmung verhageln kann: Leise, blass, basslos – einfach der reinste Quäker. Abhilfe schaffen kleine externe Lautsprecher wie der USB-Speaker IML247 von Altec Lansing. Unsere Kollegen von CNET.com haben ihn ausführlich getestet.
  • Pros: können für den Transport zusammengesteckt werden, niedriger Preis, ein USB-Kabel übernimmt Datenübertragung und Stromversorgung, sind lauter und klingen besser als typische Notebooklautsprecher
  • Cons: Verzerrungen bei höheren Lautstärken, dünner Bass, keine Lautstärkesteuerung am Lautsprecher, kein zusätzlicher 3,5-mm-Klinke-Eingang für den Anschluss klassischer Audio-Quellen
