Also for mp3's,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Altec Lansing Technologies IMT227 OrbitM Ultra Portable Speaker (Electronics)Haven't had long, but wanted to clear up description. I couldn't find any differences besides the 2.5 adapter on the Altec Lansing website,and the IM227. In this description, it didn't say it worked for mp3 also. I hooked it up and it sounds real good. It is pretty loud. It says to turn off extra bass/equalizer. At first I turned it off, but switching back and forth to headphones, I turned the eq back on and turned the volume down a little. I haven't cranked it past 3/4, but sounds great. Played Aerosmith, Skynyrd, Jackyl, Stones and rock only, they all sound great to me. Stones had some piano that sounded good too.
It comes with batteries also, I am running rechargeables. Take a marker and draw a line on bottom, before taking it off, so you can line up easier, to put it back on. It comes in IMT227 packaging and instructions, but does say IM227 on bottom.
I really like this speaker, and will mainly use in garage, patio, bedroom, kitchen,and car trips. For me it is plenty loud for the money, and is a good buy. I like most was surprised by the loudness, but not like your home theater, of course.
Really like the portability, and being able to listen with mp3. Enjoy your music. Recommend.

Very good point: Draw a mark to see in which position the bottom screws back on! I just don't understand why the guys at Altec don't design it with this mark - or even better, make the bottom symetric.
By the way, it's too bad they no longer come with the fantastic carrying case, as the 237 did; instead (at least this t model) it comes with the 2.5 adapter. I'd give it up anytime in exchange for the case.
Why do companies discontinue very succesful products?! (I can think of the Sansa Fuze versus the newer Sansa Fuze Plus, or the old Princeton Tec Aurora headlight).
