There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

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.
