Update – Altec Lansing Soundblade

So today I was listening to my Soundblade (review) today, and the batteries finally cut out while listening to Jimi Hendrix – All Along The Watchtower. So a 3 month period without switching batteries. Not bad for the no-name batteries, but I had it plugged in for extended periods of time. I really like these speakers and think you will too!

Review: Altec Lansing inMotion Soundblade

Soundblade2Well, it finally arrived! The Soundblade (MRSP is $129.95, but I found it for $69.99/free shipping) is a 2.0 speaker system with integrated bluetooth (A2DP) and a microphone with play/pause and next/previous track controls.  It also has independent volume controls, separate from the device.  It is only an inch thick (hence the blade name), and uses six(!) AA batteries.  It has a convenient flip out stand that houses a 9V power input (adapter included) and a 3.5mm AUX in (patch cable also included).

Soundblade1On to the sound.  There is very little bass.  The mids are well controlled and the highs are well rounded.  At all volumes the Soundblade still reproduced all of the notes of Beethoven’s 7th symphony, while handling SOAD’s Chop Suey! with competence. It is also great for podcasts, voices sound clear and crisp.  But if you turn the volume up to high, the speakers can’t handle it and the music is clipped.  It’s on a song to song basis though, as some songs are able to go louder (around 24/30) while some songs max out at 17 before clipping (Soundblade is turned all the way up).  Tested with my Samsung P2.

Bottom Line: Pricy, but worth it for quality wire free listening.

With all the review sites around, the Samsung accessories have gotten a back seat to all of the Apple products. If you can find out something about the product, it is a press release at best. This site will review the YA-SD210 dock, Altec-Lansing Soundblade Bluetooth speakers, A FiiO E5 (a headphone amp, if deal extreme will ship it), and the Actual P2 itself (All the accessories will be compatible with the P3 and various other YEPP players) to start off. Maybe even a new CD or two for your listening pleasure. Headphones and various other accessories should be reviewed as well.

Reviews should be up soon. Keep checking back for updates! Or use the RSS.
