CNET's favorite speakers, including sound bars, wireless speakers, and full surround sound systems.
The Altec Lansing Octiv 650 is one of best-sounding iPod/iPhone speaker docks in its price class, with a distinct, stylish look and component video output to boot.
The Altec Lansing BoomBox iMT810's winning combination of good performance, lots of oomph, and portability makes it one of the best boom-box-style bass-heavy speaker options you can buy.
While the sound quality of the Altec Lansing Orbit Stereo speakers isn't likely to blow you away, the travel-friendly and affordable USB speakers do sound significantly better than the internal audio found on most laptops.
Though it's neither the best-sounding nor the cheapest Bluetooth speaker we've heard, the Altec Lansing InMotion Air IMW725 wins points for its attractive design, portability, and plug-and-play setup with any PC.
If you can look past its so-so sound quality on music, the impressively flexible design of the Altec Lansing Octiv Stage MP450 turns your iPad into a video monitor for bedside or kitchen viewing.
If you're looking for a compact, affordable speaker for your bedside table that charges two iPhone or iPods simultaneously, the Octiv Duo is well designed and offers reasonably good sound for the money.
The Altec Lansing Octiv Mini is an ideal option for anyone seeking an affordable, minimalist iPhone speaker for the bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen.
The Altec Lansing MuzxDNA Mesh earphones represent an improvement over stock earbuds, but even given the ultralow price, the audio is unimpressive.
If you're looking for a straight-forward portable speaker with a useful, understated design and solid sound, the Altec Lansing InMotion is a good choice.
We have few compliments to give the Altec Lansing Octane 7 speaker set. The awkwardly placed midrange driver and side-firing sub come off muddy and overbearing, and the constant adjustments aren't worth the cost, especially when Altec Lansing offers a better-sounding system for the same price.
