Dual-Docking Speaker Charges and Plays iPhone and iPod

Imagine charging two iPhones or iPods and listening to your favorite tunes at the same time. The Octiv Duo lets you do just that--it docks, charges, and plays two iDevices at once. Have more than 2 devices that need charging? That is no longer a problem--with the built-in USB charging port you can plug in a third device such as a Blackberry, Droid, or Bluetooth Headset, and with the aux in jack you can play the tunes from those devices as well.

Big Sound in a Small Package

The stylish Octiv Duo has a footprint of only 3.8 by 10.7 by 5.7 inches (H x W x D), but with Audio Alignment technology you get the same amazing clarity and room-filling sound for which Altec Lansing is famous. And thanks to its innovative wedge design, the Octiv Duo tucks nicely into corners, saving space and fitting just about anywhere.

With duel firing ports on the sides of the Octiv Duo, you'll be able to hear fantastic low end bass tones that you wouldn't normally hear on such a small speaker. And to make sure your audio is always optimized, the Octiv Duo includes built-in shielded protection to prevent magnetic interference from the iPhone 4 and other mobile devices.

Included Music Mix App

Downloadable free to your iPhone or iPod Touch (with iOS 3.1 or later), the innovative Music Mix app allows you to seamlessly shuffle through all the music on both your devices. Using the colored slider at the top, you can choose what percentage of music you want playing from each device. Music Mix also displays battery levels, so you know when your gadgets are charged, and it turns on the stereo widening feature of the Octiv Duo.

Full-Featured Remote
Convenient remote attaches magnetically to speaker's reverse side. View larger.
Handy, Full-Featured Remote

With the Octiv Duo, there's no need to get up from your comfortable chair to change tunes or adjust the volume. A convenient full-featured remote puts control in the palm of your hand. And when the unit is not in use, the remote clicks in magnetically to the back of the speaker.

Compatible with All iPod and iPhone Models

The Octiv Duo works with all models of iPhones and iPods including the iPhone 4 and the new iPod Touch and Nano models, so all you need to do is dock, play, and charge. And the Octiv Duo features the "Works with iPhone" and "Made for iPod" certifications, so you're assured it meets Apple's strict performance standards.

The Altec Lansing Octiv Duo is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Altec Lansing M202 is a neat, convenient little speaker dock, with surprisingly okay sound for a very small unit. Its strong points are its size -- much tinier than you'd think from the photos, easy to tuck into a corner of a bedside table or a shelf -- and the dual docks, allowing it to be home base for a couple's iPhones or one person's phone and iPod. The unit is straightforward and simple to operate, even without the free custom app (which is a nice touch). But the quality of its construction is surprisingly cheap considering the price; it's a flimsy, lightweight plastic speaker enclosure, with unattractive, cheap cloth permanently fixed over the speakers, and there are some obvious assembly problems like misaligned seams. (Also note that, though the unit does work with the iPhone 4, it only includes plastic dock shims for the 3G/3Gs and the iPod Touch; other iPod and iPhone models can only be docked loosely. It's a weird oversight considering the near-zero cost of these plastics.)

The sound quality is fine, even good for such a small unit, but not miraculous. Given that the unit is built around two very, very small (approx. 2.5") drivers stuck in a lightweight ported plastic enclosure, the sound it puts out is, unsurprisingly, very light on bass and tends to be almost painfully bright on some music. I found this a particular problem listening to jazz -- Miles Davis's trumpet was so bright, almost tinny, that it completely overpowered the rest of his band -- while guitar-based rock came out much better, sounding almost as well-rounded as it would on a larger stereo system. Podcasts and vocals are a good fit for this unit, but I wouldn't even want to try listening to hip-hop on something this bass-deficient.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dock For Houses With Multiple iPods January 1, 2011
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Altec Lansing "M202 Dual Charging iPod Dock" is a clever idea but it's not really for audiophiles. I had high hopes for this since we have several versions of the Touch and a Nano in the house at any given time.

This dock does allow two iPods to be connected and it is indeed convenient to have a charger that it can handle all of them, as well as play from any of the connected devices, but the sound quality isn't really all that good and the required app for the iTouch\iPhone to mix the played music is of limited value for us since I don't really want any of my kid's playlist on at the same time as mine (significant difference in music tastes).

Setup of the unit was fairly straight forward and required the use of the standard iPod seating adapters (we used the Nano and Touch bases). The remote is very basic and worked well.

What I really didn't like was the quality of the music for my classical and jazz music since it comes out somewhat "tinny", but classic rock is fairly good.

After several months of use, we have relegated this for use as a charging station.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sound, Annoying Application Download Requests November 8, 2010
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am very impressed with this product. For something so relatively inexpensive the depth and range of the sound coming out of it rivals more expensive systems from Bose and other top end manufacturers. The speaker system works with just about any iPod, iPod Touch, and iPhone made over the last nine years. And as most of us now have more than one of these i devices, it supports charging (and playback) of two devices simultaneously.

Altec Lansing also has two apps in the iTunes store that are compatible with the system. The first is an alarm clock app that will trigger playback through the speaker system at a specified time. It's a nice looking app, but as with all third party applications if the app isn't running in the foreground the alarm won't go off. Definitely not for mission critical wake-up calls!

The second app, called "music mix," streams music from both players that are plugged into the speaker system. A simple interface allows for distributing playback from one device over the other - i.e. it can be set to play music 70% of the time from one iPod, 30% from the other. It also provides feedback as to the charging status of both. My only gripe is that if the mix app is not installed, your iPhone or iPod Touch will continually demand that it be installed for proper operation. Given that that the speaker system works just fine without the app, I don't see why they are so insistent on it being installed.

That gripe aside, this is an impressive low cost speaker system that delivers great sound. A great gift idea!

1.0 out of 5 stars EDIT: NOT WORKING May 23, 2012
Verified Purchase
The first unit we received simply did not work. The price went up and we bought another one as the replacement (amazon wouldn't ship a replacement). This one arrived and the sound is FABULOUS for a small corner dock - BUT when it is plugged in and turned off, it has a high pitched noise that is constant. We just unplug it every time we are not using it, but it is a high pitched noise emitted when phones are charging or when phones aren't charging if it is plugged in, so just plan to have the music playing all the time while it is docked to drown out the noise. Very happy with the sound but still debating the noise issue...although it is the only unit we've found that will mix music from 2 players at once so it's got a benefit over others!

~~~~~~~~~
EDIT:
Fast forward 3 months and the unit will not play 90% of the time, the connectors seem bad and it definitely won't play music from two sources much less one. APPARENTLY it has been manufactured to last past the return date for Amazon and that's about it. Very unfortunate for such a cool concept. We are now stuck with a useless speaker that doesn't work the vast majority of the time. Pretty frustrating considering we paid over $60 on amazon just a handful of months ago and now it is at half price...likely due to the same issues.
