Sound quality from Altec Lansing's inMotion Air is good, but isn't quite on par with some of the higher end Bluetooth speakers we've looked at, including our top-recommended model, the Jawbone JAMBOX. And it isn't quite as portable either. But the InMotion Air adds one thing that isn't available on most other Bluetooth speakers: a USB adapter that lets you use the speaker wirelessly with any computer. The included remote will let you control playback on both Bluetooth devices and computers, and you can even use the adapter to connect two speakers to a single computer, to spread your music throughout your home.

Altec Lansing continues its return to form with an innovative, affordable, powerful and flexible wireless speaker. We'd have never believed Bluetooth audio could be this good.

Convenience over sound quality makes this speaker a winner in my book, though it most certainly sonically stands tall despite its small size.

Very full well rounded sound. Great in the kitchen, bedroom or family/play room. Plays very loudly without distorsion, but don't pump it too much bass. Remote has to be aimed, seems to have a weak very directional output. It has a built in time out when it gets no signal for 15 min plugged in or...
