Product Description

Product Description

First portable audio system made for the iPod! You've got a gazillion hours of music stored on your iPod but until now, you've been the only one dancing. Introducing the Altec Lansing inMotion portable audio system. This tiny, ultra-portable, battery-operated stereo system is the first powered audio system designed exclusively for the iPod. A highly efficient Class D amplifier powers four full-range micro drivers to deliver a full spectrum of pure, distinct sound, while the revolutionary MaxxBass technology allows listeners to enjoy deep bass without lugging large speakers around. Best of all, connectivity is as easy as placing your iPod into the built-in dock or connecting it through the auxiliary port.

Everyone loves Apple's portable iPod digital music player, and taking music with you on the road can be a life saver. But you probably don't always feel like putting your headphones on, especially once your back at your hotel room--or if you're organizing the garage or simply making dinner. Altec Lansing has created a headphones-free portable listening alternative: the inMotion powered speaker system, the first portable audio system designed expressly for use with iPods.

With its compact design, ultra-low battery power consumption, powerful class-D amplifier, patented MaxxBass technology, and even a built-in iPod dock, inMotion gives you performance you'd never have thought possible from a portable audio system. inMotion features four full-range, custom-designed neodymium micro drivers (two per speaker) for clear audio output. Using principles borrowed from the professional audio world, inMotion also delivers incredible, natural-sounding bass at frequencies far below those normally possible from small speakers.

No bigger than a trade paperback book, inMotion turns your iPod into a platform for convenient, headphone-free listening anytime, any place. Its sound quality rivals that of systems many times its size. Sleek in design like the iPod itself, the inMotion system matches the iPod color scheme and features a built-in docking bay located between its speakers.

When docked inMotion's iPod bay, your music player can perform all the same data transfer and synchronization functions possible via Apple's standard, free-standing iPod dock. inMotion even takes advantage of iPod's alarm feature to create a fully functioning alarm clock that plays wake-up music of your choice--perfect for travel or dormitory use.

Other convenient features include a minijack 0.125-inch headphone jack for private listening; an auxiliary stereo minijack input for hookup with other audio devices such as portable CD players, laptops, older iPods, and other MP3 players (an interconnect for this purpose is included); and built-in, flush-mounted power and volume controls.

The secret to inMotion's strikingly deep bass is a combination of specially designed neodymium micro drivers and MaxxBass technology. Founded on the principle of the "missing fundamental," MaxxBass generates a specific set of harmonics in response to bass input; the brain then interprets these harmonics as the intended bass sound. The technique is used in commercial audio systems for restaurants, high-end retail environments, clubs, and other venues where exceptional fidelity is essential, but where large speakers or subwoofers are impractical.

inMotion's Class D amplification provides maximum sound with minimum power consumption. Smaller, cooler, and more efficient than other amplifiers, inMotion's onboard amp can support up to 24 hours of continuous playback on just four AA batteries (not included). For desktop or other indoor use, inMotion also includes an AC power supply that recharges the iPod anytime it sits in the inMotion docking bay.

What's in the Box
inMotion sound system, 0.125-inch minijack-to-minijack stereo analog audio interconnect, protective case, 10 GB/15 GB iPod docking spacer, docking connector travel cover, iPod-charging AC power adapter, user's manual, quick-connect card, and warranty information.

The design of this speaker system is impressive! Perfect for using your iPod in your office or dorm as a personal stereo.

When folded up, it forms a small little rectangle just 8 inches wide and only about an inch high; to set it up, just open it and flip the speakers around and you have a little stereo to plug your iPod into. Altec Lansing ships a very nice leather bag to store the device in. The entire unit weighs only 15 ounces so it's easy to tuck it into a brief case or backpack.

You can run these speakers off double-A batteries for truly portable operation, or from an AC adapter that plugs into the wall.

This device accepts any of the newer iPods that dock, including the mini-iPods. You can also use this with older iPods, CD players, or other MP3 players using the auxiliary audio input.

Sound quality? Not quite as good as your home stereo speakers, but then this is really SMALL. I think the sound is quite acceptable for the size of the speakers.

Note that a newer model is out now that is even smaller and looks a little cooler. So, shop around before you decide on which version is right for you.

Verified Purchase
Got my wife an 20GB iPod for Valentines Day and she listens to it all the time. When it came to hinting about a Mother's Day present, she wanted these speakers.
I have an Apple Store nearby so I stopped in and they had them on display. I was concerned that that they are so small (like two other iPods on either side of the unit in the center) that they would sound poorly, but they actually sounded very good.
She got them this morning and immediately set them up. It runs on 4-AA batteries but I imagine she'll use the supplied AC Adapter almost all the time accept if we were to bring them someplace where there might not be a place to plug them in. She was amazed at how compact the unit was and thought the speakers were missing until I showed her how it flips open. They also supply a short adapter to connect an external device to the speakers as well as a lined case to store the speakers when not in use.
So she "docked" her iPod in it, turned the power on, pressed play and it worked like a charm. It really sounded good. She moved the unit to the kitchen, put the volume maybe halfway up and we could here it all over the floor that the kitchen is on. Set lower, it can play without disturbing others. Plus, important for her (or it was when she was always carrying it around) is that it charges the unit. Maybe now with the speakers and it being plugged in, she won't be commenting that she forgot to charge the iPod again.
Granted it has only been 1 day, but she's already said multiple times today how cool it is and how good it sounds. That's all that matters to me! ;-) I'd highly recommend considering this unit to add to your iPod experience.

From its sleek looks to the thumping bass, the InMotion matches the iPods perfectly. For its size, the woofer included is mindblowing, the songs have a deep bass that one has come to expect from Lansing.
Some spiffy and convenient features --
(a) A minijack .125-inch headphone jack for private listening
(b) an auxiliary stereo minijack input for hookup with other audio devices such as portable CD players, laptops, older iPods, and other MP3 players (an interconnect for this purpose is included)
(c) Built-in, flush-mounted power and volume controls
(d) When docked inMotion's iPod bay, your music player can perform all the same data transfer and synchronization functions possible via Apple's usual free-standing iPod dock
(e) The onboard amp can support up to 24 hours of continuous playback on just four AA batteries (not included).
(f) For indoor use, it includes an AC power supply that recharges the iPod anytime it sits in the inMotion docking bay
(g) Small but useful -- you can use iPod's alarm feature to create a pretty functional alarm clock that plays wake-up music of your choice, very useful for travellers
It's a very worthy purchase for such a small "system"..

I'm pretty happy with these speakers. Beautiful design, good price. I travel a lot for work; I also have a cabin in the country. This device is perfect for both situations. The adage "Less is more" has never been truer.
Five improvements/problems need to be addressed, however:
1. Needs an equalizer, however crude. It could be a multitrack, it could just be a bass vs. treble dial. You will notice a popping of the (otherwise very good) speakers when the production of music you're playing is "punchy" or puts the bass/bottom up-front. It's not acceptable to have to lower the volume of the speakers to get rid of said popping.
2. The speakers need to be designed to handle more bass/bottom. See item #1 above.
3. Would it kill Altec Lansing to add an LED/LCD counter to the volume control so you know where you are on the volume scale? I don't think so.
4. The DC (AA battery) function must be able to connect to the engaged iPod, so that the AA batteries can power the speakers AND iPod, when the iPod is low on charge.
5. If item #4 above isn't workable, Altec Lansing must find battery alternatives, like a 3v battery (such as is used to power 35mm cameras) that can do the job.
I am glad I bought these speakers. I am very happy with them, I really enjoy them, and I would recommend them to anybody. Cheers, Marit
