Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Altec Lansing inMotion Classic is a "Works with iPhone" and "Made for iPod" certified portable stereo system that includes a digital FM radio. Altec Lansing created the first portable iPod speaker and continues to push the standard with the inMotion Classic, with special attention given to its portability, audio performance and iPhone compatibility.

The inMotion Classic Offers:

  • iPhone and iPod compatibility
  • Lightweight and compact size for travel
  • Rechargeable battery
  • Powerful, crystal-clear sound
  • FM radio tuner
  • Full featured remote control

The iMotion Classic is "Works with iPhone" certified and includes a full-navigation remote that lets you browse your iPhone's playlist. View larger.

A high-contrast LCD display lets you view your song details from afar. View larger.

Innovative handle gives you the portability you need and doubles as a kick stand. View larger.

A New Standard in Portable Audio
The versatile inMotion Classic is designed for extreme portability, letting you take your music anywhere. Compact and lightweight, the inMotion Classic folds to the size of a small, flat book to pack away.

The innovative handle is more than just a handle and serves three important roles: to swing up for grab-and-go transport, to swing back as a stand to securely kickback the speaker system, and to swing under in a "stowed" position. This stowed position electronically prohibits the system from turning ON and draining the on-board rechargeable Lithium-ion battery.

Satisfying Stereo Sound
Naturally, you'll want to bring your tunes on the road only if they sound good. The inMotion Classic delivers. It features Altec Lansing's Audio Alignment™ craftsmanship that precisely balances the key audio components -- the drivers, the enclosure and the electronics. This sonic balance is especially important for great audio in a compact system.

Expanded Sound Stage technology enhances the stereo listening experience by widening the sound field at the touch of a button. Custom-built, dual three-inch neodymium drivers throw out rich, crystal-clear audio with the quality that Altec Lansing fans have come to expect.

Digital FM Tuner
The inMotion Classic's digital FM radio tuner provides another entertainment source. The beauty of the FM radio is that it makes the inMotion Classic a valuable audio asset at all times, even when your iPhone or iPod is not handy. The four FM station presets let you keep your favorite radio stations ready to play.

iPhone Compatible
The "Works with iPhone" certification means that the inMotion Classic is engineered to be immune from GSM signals, therefore preventing the speakers from picking up that pesky interference buzz from the iPhone or other mobile devices. The music pauses and resumes play before and after taking a voice call without ever switching the iPhone to airplane mode. This lets you experience pure audio, and nothing more!

Full-navigation Remote Control
The inMotion Classic offers the most full-featured remote control in its class. In addition to the standard controls, the remote provides full menu navigation for your iPhone or iPod, allowing you to browse artists, songs and playlists directly from the remote. The high-contrast LCD display on the inMotion Classic always tells you the song details from afar.

The inMotion Classic is covered by a one-year limited warranty.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When you have a product as strong as the Altec Lansing inMotion iM600 USB-Charging Portable Speaker System with FM Receiver for iPod (Black) you'll be forgiven, particularly in a niche market such as this, for leaving well enough alone and letting a good thing ride in the marketplace. Instead, Altec Lansing has clearly listened to those who bought the iM600, and re-engineered the product as the iMT620 addressing virtually all the concerns, while also raising the bar where there were few if any complaints.

Right out of the box, in contrast to the 600, the 620 is a sleeker unit. Gone is the high gloss black bezel that looked great but would forever show fingerprints around the buttons. While the 620 weighs in a scant 6 ounces heavier than the 600, it has a lower profile than its predecessor by nearly two inches. Portability is clearly one of the areas of improvement, as the 620 is now supported by its own full-width handle, a feature the 600 lacked, as it was supported on a hinge by the part of the device that served as the dock. Which is to say that when you plugged your iPod or iPhone into the 600, and sat it down on an uneven surface, the iPod could move and bump up against the front face of the 600. The dock in the 620 is set into a fixed recess, meaning once your iPod/iPhone is in place, it's secure. Another obvious change is the antenna -- the 620's extends nearly a foot higher and is of much sturdier construction, which translates (from my own experience) to much crisper, sharper, and clearer reception from local radio stations.

Much can be said about the audio quality, but subjectivity and a lack of a baseline make it difficult to be precise.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have both the 620 and its predecessor the 600. Let me start with what they both share:

-Sound quality is good. No popping or cracks with iPods or Aux attachments. Radio pickup is very good.
-The range of sound goes from very soft to very loud in good step increments. I was very pleased with the range.
-There are only 4 radio presets on both models
-All the typical navigation controls are there, except for a way to easily "jump to next album/artist". There is a fast forward, but its use for scanning to next FM station is touchy.
-They work great with the iPod classic, however, both have extreme difficulty with the iPod Touch (2nd Gen 8GB). They wouldn't always play, and if you switched source and came back, or if the Touch timed out and turned itself off, they weren't able to pick up playing again. If you try to manually do it with the Touch, it plays from the Touch speaker even though it's in the dock. The Touch also doesn't sit well on the dock due to its thin size.
-The cords are both are 6 feet.
-Neither has an AM tuner.

What I like about each compared to the other:

600 - Has the stronger remote. I can use it from 20ft away no problem. The 620's remote is very spotty even at 6ft range. The remotes, however, are compatible with both units.
620 - Has menu navigation on its remote so it is in theory easy to navigate artists, however you really need to see your iPod screen to do this, which if you're using the remote you'd think you'd be too far away to see (but since the 620 remote is awful you're probably right up close trying to get it to work anyway)
620 - Better antenna, it's got more range of motion, the 600's just sticks out the side.

The iMT620 works perfectly with both my iPhone and my iPod. My video review runs through most of the details -- one thing I left out is that if you have your Bluetooth earpiece handy, it automatically pauses during a song and allows you to take the call. When you hang-up, the music kicks back in. A very nice feature!

Verified Purchase
Despite any misgivings, I bought this speaker system sight-unseen based on the great reviews here. This speaker system does what all the other great reviews out there say it does, so I won't go into the virtues of how great this speaker system sounds. Other reviewers did a great job doing that.

What I do want to get into is the MAJOR DESIGN flaw Altec Lansing has designed into this speaker system. As other users have noted, and as the user's manual states, when running on battery mode, the speaker is eqipped with an auto shut-off feature that will shut down the speakers if no audio is detected within 2-3 minutes. What this means for you is, you will be happily listening away to your Ipod on this system, and it will shut down in the middle of a song without warning. For whatever reason, when on battery mode, the system does not detect when my Ipod is docked, and the built-in auto shut off feature kicks in without warning. This really, really sucks because the selling features for me on this system were the great reviews on sound, and the fact that I could listen to this anywhere there wasn't power. (I planned on taking this on camping trips,etc.) Those were my two requirements in a portable sound system such as this.

There *is* a workaround if you are willing to give up the docking feature and most features on the remote while in battery mode. You can buy an auxillary cable and use the auxillary input plugin, and listen to your Ipod this way. I have tried this, and the annoying shut-down feature does not engage while in auxillary mode. The thing you give up, as mentioned, is the docking feature, and the remote will only control your volume at this point. You can't change tracks, etc. with the remote with the workaround.
