Review: Altec Lansing inAir 5000

 

Mostly good sound is marred by connectivity problems, making an otherwise solid product a disappointment.

Room rockin’ volume and bass. Great mid-range performance. Digital signal processing quashes distortion. Fast and nimble wireless music streaming. AUX port offers non-iOS versatility in a pinch

Good sound at a not-so-good price. Randomly dropped connections are instant party-killers. Aggressive signal processing at high volumes. No battery = stationary tunes. No iOS cable included

The best iPhone speakers: reviewing AirPlay's greatest hits

 

We've reviewed a few popular Bluetooth speakers lately, and while some are great, the tradeoffs are usually the same: you'll tear your hair out dealing with the clunky process of pairing and...

Sounds great ; Incredibly loud ; Nice design ; Good remote

Heavy ; Somewhat clunky setup process ; A bit of distortion at high volumes

An imperfect system, but great bang for your buck

Altec Lansing inAir 5000 Wireless AirPlay Speaker

 

Extremely powerful speaker system. Delivers deep bass without distortion. Simple, app-driven set up.

AirPlay drops signal. Uses signal processessing at top volumes to prevent bass distortion—not for audiophiles.

Altec Lansing's inAir 5000 Wireless AirPlay Speaker offers powerful, distortion-free audio performance, but AirPlay itself still has some issues to work out.

inAir 5000 review

 

Unfortunately, it's the remaining 50 percent that causes problems. Higher frequencies start to get a bit harsh as you crank the volume up, and the bass can sound quite out of balance at times. Blondie's ‘Heart of Glass' was almost overwhelmed by the...

If you’re going to spend over £400 on a set of AirPlay speakers then the sound needs to justify the cash. However, the inAir 5000 lacks the finesse you’d expect in this price range and struggles to compete with rivals such as the B&W Zeppelin Air.

Altec Lansing inAir 5000

 

Altec Lansing's first-ever Airplay dock gets its initial airing at IFA 2011. We take a closer look, and listen.

The last design hurrah is the LED on the bottom of the device. It’ll apparently act as part of the interface, telling you when the device is seeking a connection and so on, while also acting as a nice bit ‘o visual bling. And no, it doesn’t look...

The inAir promises much but delivers little

Solid build; impressive finish; easy to setup

Overblown bass; sharp edges on remote
