Despite all of the many capabilities of today’s smartphones, most have less than stellar built-in speakers. This makes it difficult to listen to your favorite music while participating in some activities. There are many options on the market these days, but most involve a cumbersome docking mechanism that can present limitations. Altec Lansing is one of leading manufacturers of personal home speaker equipment and they came up with a handy device that solves this problem. The small, compact speaker that can be used with most any mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. What they came up with is the Orbit Portable Wireless Speaker. So, when I was contacted about doing a review I was excited to try it out. As you know, it’s not secret that this household is music and speaker lovers!
The Orbit is a compact speaker designed to be used with mobile devices to enhance the sound quality. It connects wirelessly using the bluetooth capability found in most mobile devices which eliminates the need for wires. While most portable speakers need to placed on a surface and plugged in to a power source, the Orbit runs on a Lithium-ion battery that holds a charge that lasts about 5 hours. Due to its compact size, you can carry it using the carabiner clip (included in the package) to a belt loop or bag.

To be honest I should be making my son write this review! Like always someone seems to take over any speaker or headphone review, I get! I think I played with it for a whole 5 minutes before he claimed it and had it hooked up to his Iphone! He loves it! However, I had to ask him a few detail questions to get his response so I could finish my review!
We both agree that we are impressed with the sound quality! At first, we didn’t think that the sound quality would be what we were looking for due to the size but we were shocked! He also loved the battery life that allows around 5 hours of play without the recharge. He did say that he notices that the speaker cuts out if his iphone is not close by but that really isn’t a big issue. So, we give this speaker the thumbs up and recommend it. To be honest you will not find anything better for the price
