A Perfect companion for a laptop, this small USB¬powered mono speaker, Orbit, is a stylish product from Altec Lansing. Built with a strong and rugged metal body, the Orbit can take bumps and knocks without any fear of damage. The speaker does not have a 3.5-mm jack, but instead uses an in-built USB sound card that connects directly to the laptop without the need of a driver, enabling digital audio directly to the speaker.
The product is not battery powered and it draws power from the USB port itself. Bundled along with the speaker is a protective carry bag and hand-strap for porting the speakers with ease. The sound quality is excellent though it tends to jar very slightly at higher volumes. The power output and audio quality of this USB-powered mono speaker is sufficient, making it an ideal replacement for your laptop's pitiable speakers.
