The ultra-portable iM207 Orbit by Altec Lansing lets you easily share your music with those around you. With a unique design that produces a full-bodied, 360-degree sound, you will hear the music loud and clear. And with a tiny footprint that easily fits in your purse or pocket, you can get the music started for an impromptu party at any time.
With just a quick look at the Orbit, you know you're in for something special. Its round form uses a cone design integrated with a custom Altec Lansing speaker to project full, distortion-free sound in every direction. All your friends will hear the music and wonder where the great sound is coming from. If you would like a more personal listening experience, just put the Orbit on its edge for a more focused and directed sound.
At just 3.5 inches in diameter and 1.6 inches tall, the Orbit will go wherever you go. Throw it in your pocket or purse and pull it out wherever you are: on a park bench, on the street corner, waiting for the bus. To turn it on, simply twist the entire speaker; this prevents it from accidentally turning on in your bag or pocket. And don't worry about damaging the Orbit; it's built to handle even the most reckless travelers.
A smartly designed integrated cable management lets you wrap the cable around the speaker and keeps the stereo mini-plug out of the way when not in use.
Outstanding Battery Life
You don't have to worry about battery life with the Orbit; with three AAA batteries, the Orbit will play for up to 24 continuous hours, more than enough to keep the party going all night long.
The Altec Lansing Orbit is backed by a one-year warranty.

I got tired of breaking my hand trying to get this thing on, so I fixed it. Here's how (this might void your warranty!): Take the sharp tip of a utility knife and gently pry the grill off. It comes off pretty easy. Then take the tip of a very small flat-blade screwdriver and from the INSIDE of the silver ring, work around the ring and gently pop it off. You'll see after you remove the grill how the switch works and how it lines up. Next you find three or four small "nubs" on the black ring area of the speaker. These stick out just a little (I assume to give tension) take a small file and gently go over each nub once. Just barely file them. Then, because I had some, I took a Q-Tip and put a little white lithium grease and coated some of the speaker ring area. Then you line up the black switch line on the silver ring with the "off" on the speaker and snap it back on. Then paying very close attention to the "cutout" on the grill (the cutout goes over the switch area) gently push the grill back on. Wow! What a difference! (Your milage may vary)
Voice, however, is entirely different. Voice quality is improved dramatically from both a sound quality and sound volume standpoint. My laptop does not produce enough sound even in a silent room to enjoy a podcast or audiobook. With this speaker, however, one can enjoy the sound even with background noise (such as a noisy home/office heater).
The speaker takes three (3) AAA batteries. With alkaline batteries, I have been able to get about 2-4 weeks of sound with an average 2-4 hours of use per day.
Pros: Battery Life is great!
Sound quality is very clear and with careful placement bass can be boosted a little more. The level of detail is what
sets this little speaker apart from the rest of it's class. Volume levels are good too.
Portability - easily fits into a coat pocket or computer case.
Price can't be beat.
Does not have a built in battery!! That to me is a HUGE plus! Even though it can run for a few days on a set of
AAA batteries I still prefer to be able to swap them out when they need charging. It is easy enough to keep a spare
set batteries handy and then you can always keep you music going with out having to find a power outlet.
Cons: It is a small speaker so don't expect much bass.
In short if you are looking for a small speaker that can run all day and then some on a single set of batteries plus delivers clean and detailed sound then this one can not be beat for under 50 dollars.
