Altec Lansing T612


Altec Lansing's T612 eliminates the need to put your iPhone in airplane mode to hear music through the dock's speakers, but it has some sonic limitations.

Full iPhone functionality. Bass/treble controls. Useful remote. Well-balanced audio output.

Bass distorts at mid-to-high volumes. No TV-out. No speakerphone abilities. No menu navigation on remote. Watch the Altec Lansing T612 Video Review!

This speaker dock may have some low-end distortion issues, but the T612's selling point is clear: It lets you dock your iPhone, play music, and take calls without having to put it into "airplane mode"something no dock has accomplished before.

Altec Lansing T612


The Altec Lansing T612 is one of the first officially iPhone-compatible speaker systems, and it's a decent overall product. Sound quality is average, though, and bass response is noticeably lacking.

Decent sound quality; works with the iPhone and iPods

Weak bass response; sound gets muddy at high volumes

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how
