Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo iML247

 

The Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo iML247 is very affordable and very portable, but its sound is what you would expect from a $50 speaker system, with poor bass response and distortion at high volumes.

Easily portable, packable design. USB connector means no need for batteries or charger. Affordably priced.

Audio quality is what you'd expect from small, cheap speakers—weak, with no bass. No aux input or 3.5mm connectors for iPods. No volume controls.

Altec Lansing IML247 Orbit USB stereo review: Altec Lansing IML247 Orbit USB stereo

 

Altec Lansing IML247 Orbit USB stereo

The ; PC speakers snap together for travel, cost less than $50, have a single USB cord for power and audio, and play louder and sound significantly better than the internal speakers on most laptops.

The speakers sound crunchy (distort) at higher volumes and the bass is pretty thin. There's no volume control on the speakers. And the lack of a 3.5mm input means that you can't use these with any non PC/Mac audio devices, such as an iPod or smartphone.

While the sound quality of the Altec Lansing Orbit Stereo speakers isn't likely to blow you away, the travel-friendly and affordable USB speakers do sound significantly better than the internal audio found on most laptops.

Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo Speakers Review →

 

The Altec Lansing Orbit USB speakers offer a great sounding set of drivers producing very dynamic sound that sets itself apart from the competition, but come just a bit short in terms of streamlining the user experience.

Very well built ; Very good sound quality in general ; Fantastic price ; Easy to deploy

Difficult to clean up ; Slightly congested sound ; Limited to being USB speakers

Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo

 

Look ma, no power cable. USB speakers for laptop-wielding travellers.

Decent sound quality ; Great build ; Good value

Bulkier than all-in-one options

Smaller and more convenient USB-powered speakers are out there at the same price, but few match the sound quality offered by the Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo pair. They won't turn your laptop into something to rival a home stereo, but for watching...

Orbit USB Stereo : Altec Lansing Orbit USB Stereo

 

One aspect of a laptop or netbook that often gets ignored is that of audio output with speakers that do not enhance your listening pleasure.

Opening the box reveals two cylindrical speaker units individually wrapped, a soft carry pouch with a drawstring fastener plus a couple of sheets of documentation. Rather than brief set up instructions, this documentation deals with warranty issues –...

Is it possible to get great sound from add-on speakers for a laptop while also having portability ... and good design? We put Altec Lansing's to the test
