Excerpt: I find that this is a bit useless as I have no use for a long cord, but it is nice to know that this speaker is capable of this. The other great thing about this speaker is that no battery is required. This speaker is powered by the USB plug, which gets plugged into the computer. I hate setting up everything and finding out that my batteries are dead and then I can’t go on using it.
Summary: This is a review I originally wrote on Epinions.com
I started travelling with work, so was looking for something to play my music through in the hotel rooms.
Found this speaker in Tesco for £7
It is very basic in construction, but very well built from what I can see. It come with it's own neoprene case that you place it in and zip up.
The bottom twists off and you add 3 AAA batteries.
Summary: The Altec Lansing Orbit is a speaker which can be used for a variety of different MP3 players and for iPod's. You plug the lead into where your headphones go and it provides sound out from the speaker which is placed on the top of the device.
It has a flat base and overall is a very simple idea. The only control on it is the on and off switch which is used by turning the speaker round.
Summary: Let me introduce you to a little fellow with a big voice.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Altec Lansing Orbit!
A 40mm diameter speaker that fits into the palm of your hand but can fill a room with a big sound thanks to a full bodied 360 degree sound with a nice rich bass tone, considering it's a portable speaker, this is a real bonus and makes it a far better choice than many in the same price range.
Summary: I recently bought this speaker on holiday, and to be honest they really suprised my at how loud they are!! however when the ipod is at full volume the speakers do crackle a fair bit but even at 3/4 vol they are sufficently loud for me. There is no volume control on the speakers them selvesso you need to be able to control them on the device.
