Product Description

Amazon.com

With its well-regarded inMotion system, Altec Lansing has raised the bar again with the iM600USB, offering full play and chargeability for all iPod models with a 30-pin connector. Featuring a myriad of exciting technologies, the iM600USB offers big, crystal-clear sound, and it folds up compactly for easy portability.

The Altec Lansing inMotion iM600USB:
  • offers incredible musicality and clarity with deep bass;
  • folds up compactly to offer great portability;
  • provides a dock for your iPod, charging it while playing music; and
  • features a built-in FM tuner.


With Expanded Sound Stage technology, the speakers sound further apart than they really are for a bigger soundstage. View larger. View Remote.
Superior Sound in a Small Package
Employing dual two-inch neodymium drivers that are optimized for high-frequency sound, the iM600USB offers unmatched musicality and clarity. Despite its compact size, the bass is punchy and has good extension, and with Altec Lansing's Expanded Sound Stage (ESS) technology, the speakers will sound further apart than they actually are, for a greater stereophonic image.

Elegant Design Matches the iPod
The iM600USB sports a distinctive thin and elegant glossy-black look. A spring-loaded button deploys the speaker's stand and reveals the iPod dock, power button, and volume controls.

Your iPod perches front and center, resting at an angle to display the current track information and album art while recharging. If your iPod model has the alarm clock and sleep timer features, they will work seamlessly with the iM600USB.

Various docking adapters are included, making the iM600USB compatible with most iPods. Also, an auxiliary input lets you connect any CD, DVD, or MP3 player using a stereo mini-plug.

Built-in FM Tuner
If you get bored with the songs on your iPod, the iM600USB has a built-in FM tuner, letting you listen to your favorite music and talk radio. Near the top of the unit is an LCD that displays the current FM frequency; buttons on top provide tuning controls. The tuner also features a memory for four presets and a telescoping antenna for better reception.

Change the Music from Across the Room
A small remote control is included, letting you change the musical selection from across the room. A storage slot built into the system itself makes it easy to store the remote, preventing you from losing it behind couch cushions and other inconvenient places.

Take Your Music To-Go
With a compact size that folds closed to a mere 11 x 1.7 x 6 inches (W x D x H), and weighing only 2.1 pounds, the iM600USB is easy to take with you to the beach, on vacation, or wherever else you're going. The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery lets you listen to more than 7 hours of continuous play. An AC adapter is included for connected listening and recharging the battery.

The Altec Lansing iM600USB is backed by a one-year warranty.

What's in the Box
iM600USB speaker system, wireless remote, iPod docking adapters, power supply, user's guide, and quick connect instructions.



The iM600USB will provide enough big sound to keep your party rocking.

***** UPDATE: *****
It is July 2010. We bought this in April 2009. Yesterday all functionality stopped. The light shows up on the unit when it is plugged in, but it does not turn on. It will charge the iPods, but no longer plays music. The 1 year warranty has passed. I'd still recommend this product. My wife used it everyday. She carries it with her around the house. I would recommend getting the 2-year or 3-year extended warranty.
*****

I did the research on these a while back and was sure I was going to wait until I could get a Bose. After reading all of the reviews here, I decided to get this little guy.

We use it everyday. Actually, it is in use most of the day. We use it in the kitchen, in the living room when we're reading the paper, I took it with me when I was painting our old house we are about to sell and set it outside. The volume cranked great outside, and the battery lasts and lasts. Keeps my ipod topped up too.

The important thing for us is that the sound is good quality at low volumes (we have small children). And yes, it is perfect. Good crisp quality. The bass is not a subwoofer, but it is impressive how well it sounds coming out of such a tiny device.

Don't research any more products. If you need something that you can take with you just about anywhere and don't want to have to worry about plugging it in, and you want the sound to be great, and you want the device to look great - stop researching, stop stressing, just BUY THIS THING. You'll be glad you did.

We are.

Please be aware of the following limitations:
1) It does not use over the counter batteries but rather a battery similar to a laptop so you can't simply insert new ones. This means that do not expect to be using it without an AC adaptor for more then 5 hrs
2) It does not support iPhone use
3) It does not recharge your ipod when running on battery power. So the amt of time you have without AC adapter is either 5 hrs or how long your Ipod will have play on its own batteries.

I listened to all of the portable iPod speakers at BestBuy, and although the Bose system (for $399) sounded marginally better - the Altec Lansing iM600 is amazing considering the price. Great sound for a tiny unit, surprisingly good bass response, nice design, and FM tuner built in. If you can afford to spend $399 go with the Bose, if you're cost conscious you could do a whole lot worse than this little wonder.

This item unlike the other iPod-friendly speakers that have an FM radio option, sounds really good! Not the transistor radio type sound and there is a subwoofer out jack input. I purchased it to take on vacation in August and have not been disappointed since with almost daily use. It sits in my office at work, which make it very useful to get the news stations and listen to music that suits my mood through out the day. It charges the iPod when it's docked and it operates on a rechargeable battery which makes it portable.

I bought this product along with a iPod Touch 2nd generation. Yes, this device (iM600USB) does charge the Touch 2nd generation. When the package shipped (from Electronics Expo) I thought I was shipped the wrong product because everywhere on the box, it just had iM600. To check you have the 'Im600USB' look for it below the UPC code on the bottom of the box.

Once I was sure I had the 'USB' opened the box up, plugged it in, set the Touch, and it wasn't charging...ahhhh. Ok just as I was about to freak out I realised the AC plug wasn't proplerly plugged in the back, the suddenly the touch start charging! Whew!

The sound is fantastic. Was surprised how well it performed. I am so happy I purchased this item over the Bose and save $200!

Okay somewhat of an audiophile, Linn turntable, complete separates, amp, pre-amp, tuner, etc, M&K subwoofer, Celestron SLS6 speakers ...so i decide to buy this for my Ipod.....to listen in different rooms i work in. (yes, it is very portable). I listened to 2 different Bose systems, great sound, but my opinion they are not worth the $$$, other folks may differ. Besides the great sound, the design is simple, sleek and not a focal point when your eyes move around a room. I have the one in black. Built in re-charge battery is nice, the alarm function in the Ipod works quite nice and turns the unit on to wake from sleep or nap, and the FM tuner works well too. The remote is simple & basic. Even if you do not plan to move around much, you will find having it as an option with this unit is really nice feature...and also using the batter power (2.5 hours worth) is a nice option too.

Oh my sister came to visit for the weekend, listened to it and ordered one too....

to bose fans ..i have the music monitors (road trips) and the system 5 (two of them)...love the sound and yes...worth every penny...just do not believe they are there yet with the docking stations for Ipod.

I bought the im600 last year and it's great....the reason for my 5 star review....In December I ordered an ipod touch 2nd generation and the im600USB (the im600 will play but not charge the touch 2nd generation) Amazon shipped last year's im600 ....so if you order this BE CAREFUL and read the model number on the box before you open.
