Summary: The USB speakers offer a great sounding set of drivers producing very dynamic sound that sets itself apart from the competition, but come just a bit short in terms of streamlining the user experience.
Pros: Very well built, Very good sound quality in general, Fantastic price, Easy to deploy
Cons: Difficult to clean up, Slightly congested sound, Limited to being USB speakers
Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo speakers deliver audio on the go
3 May 2011
Excerpt: If you don't want to settle for the speakers in your laptop, but do want something that is easy to pack, then a new speaker product from Altec Lansing may be just what you need. The Orbit USB Stereo builds off the success of their Orbit MP3 speaker ( my first ever review on Gadling ) but moves up...
Summary: I’m always game for a new and good-looking travelling sound system for my laptop, and this is one of the neatest and best I’ve come across in ages. Altec Lansing is a funny old fish. It typically brings out a stonking sound product, then 100 dreary ones, then another excellent one.
Conclusion: We tested it on a range of music from The Presets to Rolling Stones and while the speaker coped well enough, we wouldn't recommend them for every day listening if you are really into your music. Of course it lacks any real bass element or depth, but then that's not really the point.
Pros: Small, powered via USB, good enough for your hotel room
Test: Altec Lansing Orbit USB Mini Lautsprechersystem
4 July 2011
Conclusion: Wir sind uns nicht so ganz sicher welches Konzept genau mit den Altac Lansing Orbit USB Notebook-Lautsprechern verfolgt werden sollte. Um sie zu betreiben muss immer ein Laptop mit dabei sein. Für den Einsatz draußen, beim Camping beispielsweise, fallen sie daher schon eher raus.
Pros: klein, zusammensteckbar, Stromversorgung über USB
