Pros: Sound Quality is excellent - MUCH better than popular smaller rechargeable portable speakers.

I bought the Atlec Lansing speaker and an iHome-iHM60GT at the same time. The Altec Lansing sounds MUCH better including better bass. I have tried 3 brands like the smaller iHome-ihm60GT and they all add an acoustical resonance at various frequencies from within their housings. Imagine the sound if you placed a small speaker in a tin can . . they're not really that bad, but it gives you the idea of a small echo-chamber messing with your music. They also distort at lower volume levels than the Altec Lansing. There is no comparison for sound quality . . but to be fair, this Altec Lansing is twice the size and price.

(Reviews show that people like their iHome speakers and other similar models, but Side-by-Side comparison playing your favorite music tells the story when selecting a speaker)

Cons: The speaker wire is too short . . plan on getting a 3.5mm Male/Female extension cable for your speaker. The audio wire on the speaker is about 10" long. You need an audio extension cable to prevent jerking the speaker around by the wire when handling your phone or music player. The audio cable is very delicate and can't take much abuse.

So . . . Amazon has many audio extensions listed, but most are way too long or poor quality. This is the only one I see on Amazon that looks good and not too long . . BlueRigger 3.5mm Male to Female Stereo Audio Cable (6 Feet).

Make it rechargeable:
If you add a USB cable and rechargeable batteries it can be charged to play 25-30 hours on a charge.

I had the Altec Lansing IM237 speaker and it was simply the best portable speaker I have ever used - until the wire failed (it is soooo thin). The sound was unbelieveable for the size. Rich bass and clear highs. Then I found this IMT228 speaker and figured I'd give it a shot. After all, from what I saw it has the same specs as the 237.

Aside from the color, it looks just like the 237. I think the plastic that it is made from is different because it just doesn't look or feel the same quality as the 237 - it seems cheaper. Unfortunately, it looks like the wires are designed with the same miniscule gauge so I am concerned about its durability. The batteries are included as is a nice protective case.

And now for the moment of truth! I fired it up but I was quite disappointed as it failed to deliver the same incredible sound as the former 237 - it was lacking in the bass and definitely more "tinny" than the 237. It immediately threw this speaker from the superior echelon down to the dime a dozen list.

It is certainly worth the steal that I got it for ($10) but I would not pay upwards to $40 as I see them listed for here. Looks like I am still in the market for an absolutely incredible-sounding portable speaker!

These speakers absolutely ROCK!!!! This thing is loud! I have to turn down the volume on my phone or laptop when I'm using it, and it can be heard all over my apartment. While it is obviously not as rich as my speaker system with a sub, the acoustical cavity of the unit gives it a ricer sound than if it were just a 2" driver with no package. The bass is fantastic for such a small speaker, the treble is also awesome! I was blown away by the the battery life, it is the best I have seen with powered speakers. My old HP's ended up plugged in to a 12v transformer all the time. Not these, 12 hr battery life EASY! They are very light weight and the wire storage is great. The anti slip feet are cool also. A few of the key features I like are the fact that the cord winds up underneath the unit for easy storage and to keep things tidy. Also, the power button is easy to get to and the unit itself is not that heavy. I HIGHLY recommend this speaker. One of my best buys! Absolutely worth every penny!

Overall I would say this unit has nice build quality and sounds better then others I have heard, such as the X-Mini and Brookstone Mobile Mini Speakers. I felt those sounded more like small cans with a speaker in them no real depth. I have not heard the 237 so I can't compare this to that one, but what I can say is this is pretty good for what it is. As long as you do not expect a lot of bottom end then I think you will be happy the clarity is excellent. It does have some mid-bass kick but not a lot. Overall the balance in sound is quite good.

I am going to try and give others an idea of what to expect from this little speaker. All of my listening tests have been done with an Ipod 4G and MP3's encoded at 256. I have been testing this little speaker with well recorded Jazz instrumental as well as Rock and vocal. This way one can judge the speakers ability to reproduce instruments and vocals faithfully. I did not really see a review that went into detail so I will be the one to do that.

The 228 speaker sounds very crisp with nice depth to vocals, they do not sound at all thin as with many others. I decided to do this test first with "Perfect Girl" by Sarah McLachlan, as it has very nicely recorded vocals. The vocals actually sound surprisingly strong and smooth with excellent presence and depth rather impressive for a 1.5" driver.

Next test was with music by Kenny G, and Mindy Abair. This also sounded quite good, the orbit did a nice job producing the sax in her song "Right On", a lot better then you might expect, I was actually surprised.

Kenny G's version of "Pick Up The Pieces" sounded really good, this is a superb recording, and so I felt a very good test. The song had solid punch to it, with nice open sounding sax.
