Altec Lansing OrbitM

Bookmark and Share

I recently attended the TeensInTech conference, which was quite fun. But they also gave out so maby goodies, that I paid $35 to go and came back with more than $100 of free stuff and I got to meet Steve “The Woz” Wozniak. Worth it? Ya. One of the things they gave away was the Altec Lansing OrbitM portable speaker. And it’s worth far more than the money I paid for it.

The design is overall very simple and elegant.

As you can tell, it is very small and cylinder shaped. It plugs in through a standard 3.0mm jack on and iPod or mp3 player. It also comes with an adapter to plug it into the 2.5mm Jack on a cell phone. It runs on 3 AAA batteries and even comes with this convirnient carrying case, complete with caribiner.

The unit comes with a slip of paper that says to turn off all base or treble enhancement settings. I must agree with them!
The sound is full and deep. The tiny little thing can go really loud too! The sound is just simply pleasing, and you don’t need a small speaker preset to get great sound out if this thing.

Basically, this is probably one of the best speakers of it’s size in current existence. It usually runs for $40, but they were given out fir free at the Teens In Tech Conference, held annually. This speaker totally rocks, and I got it for free!

    It really does sound great. I no longer regret not bringing my BassJump to San Francisco. It fills my hotel room nicely & the bass is decent.

    Great review. :)

    Glad you were able to attend Teens in Tech and able to write this nice review.

    I’ll let you know if I have anything else for you to review.

    Maybe the Owle, or maybe this solar charger thing I have. Both sound interesting I guess.

    When I went home yesterday, I saw a place in SFO that was selling this same speaker for $49. Definitely worth the price.
