This speaker has more bass than the Altec Lansing Music Speaker, which I also own. If you want to go that extra mile and spend a little more for a richer bass experience, I recommend this speaker.

I bought an iM-207 and an iM-237 at the same time, curious to see what the difference was.
The 207 is roughly 25% smaller and comes with a 1/8 to 3/32 stereo adapter, is designed to function sitting with the speaker pointing upward or will sit at a slight angle back on its side. I think it is money well spent- compared to the same amount I spent 3 years ago on one of those fold-up cube type dual speakers. In comparison to that fold-up cube, I think the sound is like 3 times better: quality-wise and volume-wise. The iM-207 lacks an LED that lets you know if the power is switched on, so you might drain the batteries out if you forget to turn it off after you unplug your player unit. It turns on and off by rotating the outer chrome ring-not a smooth switch at all compared to a rocker, slider or push button. Now on to the iM-237: a bit more stylish than its predecessor the iM-207 and at a price that is 130% more. It comes with a swanky padded and zippered carrying case with a mini carabiner clip and a tether that can be attached to the speaker to secure it to your wrist or hang it on the wall, it doesn't have a 1/8th to 3/32 adapter. the sound is cleaner than the 207, more defined at both ends and easier to listen to and has more volume. I wouldn't say the sound is twice as good though- I'd say more like 40% better. I'm not an acoustical engineer and don't have the audio equipment to evaluate the quality on any emperical basis. The iM-237 does have a nice green LED to let you know the power is on and a simple push button on/off button (which is vulnerable to accidental activation) the cord conceals neatly in a winder molding in the base and secures the plug well- a little too well, it's hard to get it out if you don't have long fingernails! I'd say value wise the 207 has a better quality to dollar value, however if you prize sound quality then go for the iM-237.

I bought one of these to play music from my iPhone during a vacation. I used it outdoors by the swimming pool for about a week. Went through only one set of batteries (AAA). My friends and I were consistently impressed with the sound that came out of this little speaker; it's surprisingly loud and clear.

I figured when I bought it that it was basically a throw-away. Not so. It's a good little speaker that fits the bill.

I knew I wanted one of the Altec Orbits series speakers. The question was, which one? I had settled, for all the right reasons, on the IM-237. Or so I thought. When I actually went to purchase it I noted a window that said there was a newer model of the item. A newer model? The window suggested the IM-227. So the first odd thing, not many model numbers are retrogrades. Did it have different features? Was it improved?

As it turns out the answer is much simpler. Altec found a way to make another buck or two by not including the case. Which is kind of drag because I think the case would actually be useful.

Soundwise, the Altec IM-227 is a good value for $20 or so. It's not stereo, it's a single speaker. The tiny amplifier powered by three AAA batteries (which you supply) is fairly clean for what it is. Make no mistake, this is close listening device. You won't entertain others with this thing. It works at a desk, in a cubical or a small room with no background noise. I can see where it would be great for camping though I haven't checked the full length of the battery life claimed by Altec (24 hours). For a single driver speaker of this size the sound is rich, detailed and reasonably accurate (given the device). I think it's worth $20 if your needs match what this speaker does.

Downsides:
-The cord is short. I mean short. I'm talking seven inches of short.
-It's very simply constructed of plastic.
-It's not very cool looking.
-Max volume isn't loud.
-Power button gets turned accidentally if packed with other things (I pack mine without the batteries after learning this).
-That skinny little cord is going to break and then this thing will be a throwaway (which is sad).

Upsides:
-It's cheap.
-The sound is rich and reasonably accurate.
-It's light.
-It's small.

Even though the internal speakers on my Sony Vaio notebook computer are decent, I sometimes need a little more volume and clarity. When the need arises, I usually whip out the ear-buds. But recently, I've been wanting to play some tunes on my computer at work where it's not convenient to wear ear-buds. Hence, the "need" for one of these portable mini-speakers.

After reading the reviews on portable notebook/iPod/iPhone speakers, I narrowed my choice down to 3 products and ordered all 3. I thought that I would choose the best one, send the others back, and review them at the same time. So....my 3 choices were the X-Mini II Capsule Speaker, the iHome iHM60 Rechargeable Mini Speakers for iPod (Blue), and the Altec Lansing iM-237 Orbit Ultraportable Speaker for MP3 Players (Silver).

I tested all 3 speakers with my Sony Vaio notebook, my iPhone 3Gs, and my 60-gig iPod. All 3 speakers worked with all 3 devices, and the rating results were comparable.

One more thing: although 2 of the 3 speakers have USB charging cables, none of them are USB devices. The USB only charges the speaker; the sound is controlled via the headphone-out controls.

1) X-Mini II Capsule Speaker ---- This speaker is the most compact. I like the design, the lines, the feel, and the size. It just feels right.
