Altec Lansing: New Product Over View

The year 2015 has been a pretty good year for Altec Lansing. With over 75 years in the business, this year, Altec Lansing has made great strides in getting their products out for consumers to get exclusive hands-on experience prior to purchasing. In June of this year, the company announced that its line of “everything proof” Bluetooth portable speakers will be available in over 100 different Best Buy locations throughout the US. To follow that, in July, Altec Lansing announced the release of these speakers in other retailers such as Target, Office Depot, Verizon Wireless, Kohl’s and a host of other locations throughout the US and parts of Canada.

Now if you’re one that loves music and wants to listen to it as much as possible no matter where you are or what you’re doing, you know that having a portable speaker to accompany you on your journey is a must! There are endless possibilities of portable speakers on the market right now that cater to the needs of almost whatever you want. Altec Lansing’s options are among the most versatile.

To stand behind a company who takes pride in their product and sees the value in ensuring their product offers the best of the best features is a huge deal. Here we are going to quickly explore three models that are currently available in stores for demo and purchase.

Two of the three, the BoomJacket and Mini LifeJacket come equipped with a built-in universal mounting mechanism for easy attachment to equipment like kayaks, bikes, motorcycles, tent poles, etc. Although small, Altec Lansing speakers do not fall short on its sound quality, packing a punch with its CD quality sound and equipped with a hands-free speaker phone capability for phone calls.
