Listen to music on the go with this Altec Lansing Mini H2O IMW257-BLK speaker, which features a water-, sand-, shock- and snow-proof construction for defense against the elements. The Bluetooth interface allows simple wireless pairing with select devices.
Compact and travel friendly.

Surprised on how loud the sound is from such a small device. With a speaker this size, bass is not too great but presentable enough to not distort most of my music. Slight distortion with very busy tracks on max volume. With volume 1 to 2 notches down eliminates distortion and still very loud. Love how I can attach to a small carabiner and attach while working/sporting outside, knowing it can withstand the elements. Unlike most this size, I am able to lay it flat (provides a nice 360 sound) or stand it up. Very important because when pointed direct, the loudness radiates quite a distance that may be too loud for others not even near you. Volume on phone calls lower than music volume, but was able to be heard with full sound and clarity. Great added feature of being able to skip/pause tracks on the device without having to access your phone. Overall, great BT speaker for size, sound, and portability.

Awesome little speaker
Posted by: Yayy from: on
This speaker is small but loud. The first thing I did when I bought it was throw it in the water. That was one of the main reasons I bought it. Sure enough when I took it out, it was still playing music. Overall it's an awesome speaker

Nice speaker, but...

The speaker itself is great, nice sound from such a small speaker. The only complaint I have is the annoying voice prompts. "POWERING ON!! WELCOME TO ALTEC LANSING!!" If you aren't expecting it, you will jump. In a small enclosure like a shower, it's like the voice of God yelling at you that it is doing something.

Nice little Speaker
Posted by: woodworker from: on
I use this speaker when i am working on my woodworking projects and it can get pretty loud. It has passed the dust and shock(proof) tests with flying colors. The only thing that annoys me is every time i turn it on, it yells powering on and same with powering off

good sound in a small speaker and it could get wet and won't get damaged but will definitely not float! Overall a good small speaker.

Great speaker for the shower

Waterproof, great sound, my only single complaint would be the obnoxious "WELCOME TO ALTEC LANSING!, YOU ARE NOW PAIRED!" announcement every single time, but that hardly detracts from the awesomeness of the speaker itself

Great sound for the price
Posted by: MusicLover from: on
This product is excellent for the price. This is probably the best quality you could find for such a low price. I'm very happy with it. I have a very loud car, but the sound is not drowned out and always comes in clear.

good sound . . . but
Posted by: boulis from: on
This speaker works fine. I did not like that a human voice loudly announces whenever "the speaker is connecting" or disconnecting. I bought this for work and the announcements were not appreciated during court appearances.

Great potable speaker
Posted by: Dandan from: on
Speaker syncs easily. Great sound with just enough bass to listen to it where ever you go . Speaker is very durable and fits in you pocket. The waterproof also allows you to take it with you in the shower or the pool without worrying you will damage the speaker.
This speaker has been wonderful , I take it with me where ever I go hiking , golf , mtn biking , swimming . You name it and it's perfect to take with you. It also comes with a little clip you can clip to you belt loop or backpack. It's so light weight and small you won't notice it in your pocket . Great device with great sound
