Best little speaker8/19/2013
I have purchased a few portable iPod speakers in the past, but the simplicity as ease of use of this one are exceptional It takes batteries, sound is awesome, with great base, protective cover, 3.5mm plug built in, what more could you ask for
Its a good product for a tablet, cell phone, oe a net book. The batteries do not fit well in the slots.
worked for a few weeks12/30/2011
I paid $20 and they worked well for a bit. they sound better than my HP Core i7 laptop does and that is what I was looking for. $89 is huge money for this little speaker! You cant daisy chain them. Only 1 works at a time. Stopped working after a few weeks and I delayed returning too long and Altec won;t work with me. I threw it away. Logitech makes a 2 speaker system for $15! USB powered and it sounds really decent.
Great portable speaker!10/14/2011
This is a great product. Sound is clean and loud enough for a mid-size room. It is very handy for traveling, good quality and compact. I use it to listen to music with my iPhone and also to watch movies in the iPhone or the netbook.
It's a great idea and price, but the sound isn't awesome. Better than old transistor radio speakers, but not awesome. could use more bass. Using my iPhone 3GS and Pandora.
Perfect Patio Sound7/20/2011
Had this little gem for over two years.. Everyone is amazed at the sound. Coupled to my iTouch it makes the evenings by the firepit most enjoyable. Don't miss this deal!!
This is a Terrific Product!7/2/2011
This is a terrific little product with a sound that's bigger than you would think from looking at it. Very convenient to carry. Could even fit in a large pocket if necessary. I have had one for several months now, and have been very happy with it. Recently, a friend of mine heard it and was so enthralled that I got her this one. Everyone who has heard it can't believe the sound that comes from it. Great buy for the average listener. I imagine that a really discriminating listener might have issues, but great for me and everyone else I know who has heard it.
Easy to use, good sound for such a small & simple device. Good value for the price.
Packs a punch!10/24/2010
Great sounding speaker, amazing for its size. Very well made and sturdy, very light weight.
Amazing sound from something so small!10/16/2010
This is a great little speaker! It comes with a case, clip, and even 3AAA batteries! In the case, it is 3.5" diameter, and 2 inches tall. I have purchased five of these; they are great gifts and produce impressive sound for their size! You won't be sorry if you purchase one of these! Batteries last for a LONG time!
You must buy this Speaker10/6/2010
Great sound, very small and light yet delivers a room filling sound. I have given them to all my children and frequently give them to clients as a small Thank You. You will not believe your ears. Run, don't walk to order five of these speakers. You will never regret your decision.
This is an amazing speaker for its size and price. I have been very pleased with it. ~~~~ I am thinking about getting a second Altec Lansing Orbit MP3 Portable Speaker System and finding a splitter (a male lead into MP3 cellphone splitting into two female inputs for the Altec Lansing speaker) to make it stereo. Has anyone tried this?
This is the best speaker for its size that I've ever heard! The price is unreal. No distortion and music doesn't sound compressed. Great gift for iPhone users!
Uses batteries packs a nice loud but not annoying sound I use to listen to Howard in the morning. I am sorry there were not 2 to buy together as a set. It works with my Stiletto & my portable CD player.
Love it for podcasts.9/27/2010
This is a great little speaker. Don't expect the highest fidelity but it has really good sound for on the go listening/sharing. I especially love this thing for listening to podcasts. I can carry this thing to any room in the house instead of having headphones on everywhere or lugging around a docking speaker. It's also handy for boosting my laptop sound, especially if I'm using it outside where ambient noise really drowns out my tiny laptop speakers. Just beware this is a very simple speaker. On button, speaker and led light, that's it. No volume controls (which isn't that much of a bother to me); no power cord (AAA batteries, but battery life is pretty good so far). I would definitely recommend getting it on sale though. I would never have bought this if I had to pay the MSRP $40, but that's just me. Fortunately it looks as if it's on sale often though so happy listening.
This tiny system is awesome. The highs are crisp, the bass is solid. As far as any comments about lacking bass...no it's not going to thump; but it is well balanced. Bass takes a lot of power, and you're not going to shake the windows running off 3 AAA's. It's an amazing package. You won't regret the purchase
Great little speaker9/27/2010
Good sound quality and definitely worth the price. Would of giving it 5 stars but for the lack of USB connection.
Great little portable speaker for the price9/24/2010
Pros: Great sound.. more than adequate volume.. nice case... compact size..... Cons: Short connecting wire almost necessitates an extention... bass is almost non-existent (not terribly surprising for such a small speaker..... On Balance... excellent product for its price and size
This little speaker actually has very good sound. It's not at all tinny and the size makes it super portable.
Altec Lansing is a great company. This has fantastic sound for such a small device. Truly amazing, and you can't beat the price. Simple to use. As for volume control, yes it is tue that it does not have one, however you simple use the volume control on the device you are using it with. No problem.
Great sound in a small package9/23/2010
I bought this portable speaker because I'm a road warrior and often need to give presentations and demonstrations that require sound in meeting rooms and classrooms of varying sizes and varying electronic capabilities. My laptop speakers are anemic and can be heard maybe 3-4 feet away. This little jewel allows me to project clear sound throughout a large room easily. Easy to tuck in my laptop bag, easy to use, lightweight. I'm very happy with my purchase.
Waste of money9/23/2010
Very nicely packaged and solidly constructed. That is all the pros I can say for this little gadget. Where do I begin with the cons? Let me think... 1. Lack of volume control. There is only one control on this unit: the power button. Whatever volume it outputs depends soley on the output device. 2. Uses AAA batteries. It is much more economical to use built-in USB rechargeable batteries, which is what virtually every other similar portable speakers use. 3. Expensive. These costs about 2 dollars to make. You can get these in China for about 7 bucks. Maybe without the "altec Lansing" logo, but you know that ihome and altec lansing just put their logo on cheap Chinese products and charge 10 times the price. 4. Sound is okay. The lack of volume control makes up for a lot of the frustrations because some devices and quieter than others, and some songs are quieter than others. And you cannot easily adjust for those. So, basically, if this was cheaper, say, $10, I can justify purchasing it. Otherwise this is just a waste of money.
Buy this speaker9/23/2010
I use it with my Sansa, I use it with my laptop, I use it with my phone, I use it with my portable TV. Eve tried it with a few no-name MP3 players, it simple rules. Have given away all " just like or same as but" ones to this. It even is an improvement over it predecessor. Easier to load, turn on and cord management. Smaller also. And just a great of battery life. Loved it so much I bought two more. People my wife works with want them and ask where they were purchased. She uses it in a noisy work environment with her Sansa clip. Buy this now you won't be disappointed whatsoever. It was a little picky about which rechargeable battery brands work. That was resolved, toss your Energizers with their flat bottoms and you are good to go. Or use them in a LCD flashlight or remote control. Case fits really snug, would be nice to have a pouch for spare batteries on the outside. All in all great useful item it just works and works and sounds great. Then again it is Altec-Lansing, as one would expect from them.
This thing really surprised me9/23/2010
I ordered 3 of these as stocking stuffers for my kids and to be honest didn't expect a whole lot, but these little things sound pretty good, and I am not one to be satisfied with just so-so sound. The bass is the biggest surprise. Its not going to replace a 12" sub or anything, but the bass is definitely there. I don't think at this price/weight point there is much room for improvement.
Worth every penny9/23/2010
I bought one of these for my wife to use with her iTouch - the sound quality is good for the money. Do not confuse a single speaker for rich stereo sound, but the quality of the device easily surpassed the price. Apple sells this on their website at twice the price I purchased from buy.com. Liked it so much I bought a second to use with my iTouch. Combine this speaker with the NetFlix app and I have a surprisingly good way to instantly watch their available programming.
Nice but chord hard to store9/23/2010
The speaker is a nice size for travel, sounds good for something that small, travel case is nice. I hate to be picky but the plug-in speaker cable is very hard to wrap into it's storage space .... especially when you remove the battery storage top. I would still purchase it's a pain to deal with.
Great sound in a small package!9/16/2010
I'm very impressed with the sound that comes out of this little speaker. I love that it runs on AAA batteries. Works great on our boat! Carrying case is handy too.
BUY THIS .. YOU'LL BE PLEASED9/14/2010
Okay, I was skeptical, but hey, it's Altec Lansing, so I decided to give it a try. It is so easy to use, just plug the 3.5mm jack into your MP3 and turn both on. The sound is much better than I had even hoped for, and tone reproduction is very true. The output volume is very ample, I can even listen to my favorites in the shower with all the shower noise.... Great price.. I am very pleased.
Great little speaker9/13/2010
The sound from this little speaker is amazing. The speaker doesn't those low bass sounds, but that is to be expected from this type of speaker. If you're looking for ease of portability with some great sound then this speaker at this price is worth the price.
Really incredible. Use it every day.4/25/2010
I travel from site to site every day, and I've gone through many, many portable speaker systems. I am excited to say, I have owned this little guy for nearly a year and a half, and it's great. I use it at customer sites to listen to podcasts and Pandora via my iPhone. The sound is impressive. I've had multiple comments on the matter. And a set of three AAA batteries will last a week or more (30+ hours). Impressive in my opinion. You can't go wrong here. This little guy has been dropped I don't know how many times and still functions like the day I bought it.
Great little speaker5/13/2009
This thing really livens up the bathroom...I gave one to my wife as she always has to plug her mp3 player into the main stereo in the family room, and then jack up the volume so she can hear it while she gets ready in the bathroom/bedroom (chicks!). Anyway, we have this sitting on the vanity, and her little Sansa Clip really pumps out the sound through it. The cord wraps around the bottom, and it came with a carry case. She loves it.
Does what it's meant to!4/22/2009
Compact, easy to use, and very acceptable sound quality given its size. Perfect for travel (keep it in the carry-on bag and ready to go!), and can't beat the price!
Excellent portable speaker2/15/2009
For a speaker this size, the performance is amazing. Sound quality is fine even at high volumes. Works well with my iPod Touch and MacBook Pro. It's great for taking on the road for listening or for delivering slide shows. Excellent value for the price. Two nits: If you're a big bass fan, this isn't your speaker. Of course, you shouldn't expect strong deep bass from a speaker this small. It does, however, perform well from low-mids through highs. The other nit is more important: the speaker's power button is easy to accidentally hit when the speaker's in its case, which of course wears out the battery. I wish Altec had used a slide switch instead of push button.
Great little speaker12/15/2008
The sound from this speaker is very impessive. It is a little bigger than simular speakers but for the much better sound and volume output is is well worth it. I like that it came with a case and the cord stores niceley when it is not in use.
