  • Review: Altec Lansing BackBeat 903 wireless headphones

    The era of stereo Bluetooth is upon us. While A2DP – essentially the part of Bluetooth that enables stereo transmission of audio – has been around for years, it’s taken Apple two years to get off its duff and add it to the iPhone Bluetooth stack and, me being an iPhone LUVR, it took me that long to actually pay attention to A2DP. I’ve tested wireless Bluetooth… Read More

  • Monster rock docking system for iPod and iPhone

    Whoa! That looks like a monster. It seriously seems as if that iPhone has its own Marshall half-stack. Neither the press release or the sell-sheet say how powerful those speakers are, but, hey, there are four of ‘em – so it’s gotta be loud, right? Ok, ok, so they are only 2” speakers, but you probably weren’t looking for something to blow down your… Read More

  • Altec Lansing Orbit MP3 speaker

    If you’re on a budget or just want to kick out in a different direction from ordinary docks and speakers, you might wanna take a look at the Orbit. To me it looks like a mashup of a tuna can, an old-timey microphone element and an ashtray, but your experience may vary. I better just let Altec Lansing describe it for you. Press release after the jump. Read More

  • Moondance GLOW iPod dock from Altec Lansing

    Maybe because its been a long week, or maybe because this really is cool, but either way the Moondance GLOW sounds awesome. The iPod docking station for the bedroom not only does all your standard alarm-clocking, iPod-playing and remote controller-ing, it also glows. Glowing music and a big ol’ pillow sounds pretty sweet right now. Read More

  • Altec Lansing Expressionist BASS desktop 2.2 speakers

    Huh? 2.2? Yup. Each of those ominous-looking speakers has a 4” subwoofer pointing straight down. Standing at 10” high, the Altec Lansing Expressionist BASS (FX3022) system is designed to be used on a tabletop, which would then radiate sound. The inclusion of the subwoofer into the normal form factor eliminates the need for a third bass-amplifying component. Each speaker also houses… Read More

  • Altec Lansing iMV712: Best iPod Dock This Week


    The Altec Lansing iMV712 made an appearance back in January at CES, and if you’re loving your 5G iPod, it’s certainly not a bad way to spend $350. And, it’s finally hit the streets, so you can actually buy one now. Today. In consumer electronic stores or online at Altec Lansing. The company claims it can “deliver powerful, concert-like sound and a true cinematic… Read More

  • Apple vs. The World: Playing Dress-Up With Your Apple


    Windows users always pull out the old “there are no peripherals for Mac” chestnut whenever they’re backed into a corner by rabid Apple addicts. While it’s true there aren’t as many extras for Mac as there are for Windows, there are still plenty of peripherals to go around. To prove our point, we rounded up a bunch of our favorites. There are of course tons more… Read More

  • CES 2007: Dear Diary…Seagate's Hard Drives, iPod Accessories Galore And Exhaustion

    , but with more walking. This entry catalogs the companies I met with the first “half” of January 8, my first full day of the show. After waiting in a cab line for half an hour and then coughing up $20 to get from our hotel to the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) I hit the show floor for my first meeting at 9:30 with Seagate. Last time I spoke with the company reps back at… Read More

  • Zune's Altec Lansing Speaker Dock

    this morning, now check out an as-of-yet unannounced accessory for the Zune. The Zune dock from Altec Lansing seems to be just a set of speakers with controls on top. We say “just”, but this kind of product has fed the families of iPod accessory employees for years now. We don’t know whether the player has a USB port to connect to your computer, or whether it has any kind of… Read More

  • Altec Lansing USB 5.1 Speakers


    Here’s a strange duck. Although Bose is doing this with their Companion line, these Altec Lansing speakers are USB only and include audio in and out but no optical connector. Presumably these speakers use a driver on the PC to smooth out the audio and create the surround-sound effect. It also includes a remote. Priced at $249.95, they’re an interesting idea. Not sure how… Read More
