Pocket-Lint: Did you like the idea of some wireless music courtesy of the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Air, bust gasp with horror when you read about the £500 price-tag?
If so, help could be on hand from Pennsylvania-based audio guru Altec Lansing, who has announced its latest wireless speaker - the Altec Lansing inMotion Air - over at CES.
Altec Lansing knows speakers, and some of their products can take a real beating like the Life Jacket. The BoomJacket speaker is their latest creation, and it is just as rugged as its predecessor while offering up double the battery life.
The Altec Lansing BoomJacket speaker is tough, but not just the regular kind of tough that lets you drop it from waist high. The portable speaker has a rubberized skin that helps absorb any bumps it might take, while also helping it obtain the IP67 waterproof rating. Rain, dust and dirt are no match for the BoomJacket, and its size (7.5” x 3.123” x 2.825”) makes it easy to tote around.
Pocket-Lint: When we think of Altec Lansing it's car tech that immediately comes to mind. But things are a-changin'. Having just been acquired by an investment company, Altec Lansing was showing off some concept audio devices at this year's Consumer Electronics Show.
