Altec Lansing InMotion iM7 review: Altec Lansing InMotion iM7


Altec Lansing InMotion iM7

Seamless integration with any dock-connecting iPod; eye-catching design; includes remote; charges the iPod while plugged in; works on AC power or batteries; impressive sound with thumping bass; auxiliary line-in port for use with other audio devices.

No meter display for bass, treble, or volume adjustment; a bit too bulky for ultimate portability; remote can't navigate through menus on the iPod.

The Altec Lansing iM7 offers good sound quality, flexible listening options, and handy features, making it a solid choice for any iPod owner in the market for a complementary sound system.

Altec Lansing inMotion iM7


The tube-shaped Altec Lansing inMotion iM7 is a combination Apple iPod dock and portable speaker system. The iM7 adds a little oomph to the company's inMotion line, providing room-filling sound in a stylish white and gray casing.

Analog audio inputs provide versatility. Battery or AC operation. Adjustable docking cradle fits any generation of iPod or iPod mini. Looks very cool. Full sound, with plenty of volume.

No LCD or LED on the unit or remote to indicate volume or tone-control levels. Tone controls are only on the (easily lost) wireless remote. Doesn't come with a carrying case or bag. Built-in handle is uncomfortable.

This versatile portable speaker system looks and sounds good enough to get just about any party started. The price may seem high, but you're getting plenty of power for the money.

Altec Lansing inMotion iM7 Portable Speakers


A great-sounding, high- or low-volume semi-portable speaker system that runs off of wall or D-battery power, permits full user adjustment of bass and treble, includes remote control and international power adapter. Exceptional bass for a unit in its...

Unacceptable remote control; doesn’t include carrying case or rear Dock Connector for synchronization; no indicators of relative bass or treble levels, so you’ll need to judge for yourself by ear.

Comparison: Altec Lansing iM7 / Cambridge SoundWorks PlayDock MP3


Are you in the market for a higher-end portable MP3 player speaker system? Today we look at curious-looking offerings from Altec Lansing and Cambridge SoundWorks, the inMotion iM7 and PlayDock MP3, respectively. Both promise to provide rich tone and...

Curious design ; Built in rechargeable battery ; Superior sound dispersion, ideal for outdoors ; Most MP3 players can fit in cradle ; Can charge and power Dell and Creative devices

No remote ; No volume indicator ; No bass/treble adjustment ; Can charge only Dell and Creative devices

In conclusion, there is no clear cut winner here, as you can tell by the same overall rating on each (but different marks in the other three categories). If you are looking for a top-notch iPod companion speaker system that has some great iPod-centric...
