Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 iM207 review

 

Editors' Note: As of September 2008, this product has been replaced by the similar Altec Lansing iM237 orbit MP3 . The rating of this product has also been modified accordingly.

The Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 is compact, stylish, inexpensive, and versatile. It's an incredible value for a portable speaker.

Like many speakers of this size, the Orbit-MP3 suffers from hollow-sounding audio. The power ring feels fragile.

The Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 is a great choice for any frequent flier, thanks to its travel-friendly design, low cost, and versatility--in the realm of portable speakers, this one's an excellent value.

Review: Altec Lansing Orbit MP3 iM237

 

Both iM207 and iM237 rely upon the same formula: each has a metal grille on top, covering a single speaker that's housed inside of an otherwise mostly plastic shell. The bottom of each shell unscrews to house three AAA batteries for 24 hours of run...

Which of these two systems is better? Neither. While we'd pick iM237 on aggregate sound quality, the difference between the units' audio is small, though the size, cosmetic, and pack-in differences may matter to some users. In our view, iM237 is an...

"MOM! iM600 won't stop touching me!" "If you two don't stop it immediately I'm going unplug you both and put you back in your boxes!" It's just another day in the Altec Lansing family. Like many of our own families, they're loud, powerful and...

Conclusion: A family that plays together, stays together At the end of the day, the Orbit MP3 does a great job of delivering great results by exceeding at what it's supposed to do and not promising to do too much else. One thing I would have...

Review: Altec Lansing Orbit-MP3 portable speaker

 

Altec Lansing's s small enough to carry with you in a bag or backpack, and its sound quality is surprisingly good for such a small device.0 Orbit-MP3 is a portable speaker that's small enough to carry with you in a bag or backpack, and its sound...

Measuring 3.63 inches in diameter, the Orbit-MP3 uses a 3.5mm plug to connect to your iPod, iPhone (the plug fits into the iPhone's recessed jack), or any device with a headphone jack (Altec Lansing also includes a 2.5mm adapter). The Orbit-MP3's audio...

Small and very portable, long-lasting battery life, reasonable audio quality

Heavy distortion at high volumes, cord can be hard to retrieve when wound

The Altec Lansing orbit MP3 (IM237) is a great portable speaker designed for listening to music while on the go. Good battery life and acceptable sound quality make for a great way of sharing music with friends.

Altec Lansing iMT237 Orbit Portable Speaker

 

Does the iMT237 Orbit portable speaker deserve its tagline of 'mighty little speaker'?

At only 190g, the cylinder-shaped iMT237 is light but it still appears rather imposing for such a small device (only 5.5cm tall with a diameter of 9cm). This is partially because of the metal upper part, and partially thanks to the industrial-looking...

Altec Lansing Orbit iM237

 

We like the new and improved version of Altec Lansing's portable single speaker, the Orbit MP3, better than the previous model, but it costs a bit more.

Compact and attractively designed ; Comes with a protective carrying case ; Sound is OK for a speaker this small ; Integrated cable plugs into headphone jack of MP3 players and other devices

While it's inexpensive, this model is a bit pricier than the previous Orbit ; Overall thin sound ; Distorts at higher volumes

While the RRP is AU$69, you'll find the Altec Lansing iM237 Orbit MP3 for about AU$40 online. That puts it more or less in the middle of the other mini-portable speakers we've seen. That said, the price tag is a little disappointing considering that...
