Altec Lansing, a division of Plantronics, Inc., today announced this exciting new partnership with consumer electronics personalization company, Skinit. Music lovers can individualize their Orbit, Altec Lansing’s newest ultra-portable speaker, making each a one-of-a-kind.

“We designed the Orbit to be an ultra-portable music speaker that can be instantly enjoyed in most any environment,” said Ed Benforado, product category director for Altec Lansing. “By partnering with Skinit, we offer thousands of designs that can be easily applied to the Orbit to show each user’s personality, passions and interests.”

The Orbit is the simplest speaker Altec Lansing has ever made but its sound quality is anything but basic. Delivering surprisingly loud and full-bodied sound, the Orbit easily travels to your favorite summertime hang-outs and parties, sports games and vacations. Using a standard 3.5mm connection, simply plug-and-play with your iPod®, iPhone™, MP3 player, or laptop computer. And, long battery life provides more than 24 hours of continuous play on three AAA’s. The visual design of the Orbit was inspired by a compression driver component from Altec Lansing’s rich professional heritage. Read more about the fascinating development story of the Orbit at
