Well played, Altec Lansing, Well Played. You designed a beautiful, simple BlueTooth speaker that looks right at home on a Bank Executive’s desk, as well as on a teenager’s shelf.
It has everything a music lover would want, with today’s technological advances. Gramophones, record players, tape decks and CD players are a thing of the past and for those who love to hold on to that piece of history. They may believe the music sounds better when played on those pieces of equipment, or they do it for nostalgia purposes.
But nowadays it’s all about holding your complete music collection on a tiny portable device – your iPhone, Android, iPod, MP3 player. Then using the Bluetooth feature, you can listen to your music on your car radio, wireless headphones or wireless speakers. No more dusting off records or rewinding a cassette tape with a pencil.
The Soundblade by Altec Lansing is a Mobile Bluetooth Speaker is simple. It brings out quality sound and rich bass from a small, tabletop device (6″ x 2″ x 2.5″). The sound is perfect for playing music, as well as using it as pairing it with your phone as a speakerphone.
It has a built-in rechargeable battery with an 8 hour life, so it is mobile. It comes with a plug and USB cord. You can charge it by plugging it into a wall or you can use the USB cord by itself to charge it by plugging it into a computer.
You can use the Bluetooth capabilities to stream music from a connected device to the speaker. Or you can use the included auxiliary cable if Bluetooth isn’t an option.
I feel as if the Soundblade has provided everything to make using the device simple and efficient. The outer design has a rubber texture to it, no double protecting the 2 x 1.5” full range Neodymium Drivers, Dual passive radiators, and an on board microphone. Its power switch, USB and auxiliary ports are on the side of the speaker. On the front are the call and volume controls.
The Soundblade is available in various colors, for every personality. Options include:
- Dark Gray
- Light Gray
You can currently purchase the Soundblade (iMW545) for $99 from these retailers:
Amazon, Office Depot, Micro Center, Fry’s
