Altec Lansing Life Jacket 3

 

The Altec Lansing Life Jacket 3 speaker is waterproof and can float, but its Bluetooth audio performance is highly controlled by digital signal processing.

Decent audio performance at moderate volumes. Waterproof, rugged design. Speakerphone functionality. Includes mounting kit.

Audio performance is hampered by digital signal processing. Flirts with distortion on tracks with deep bass at top volumes.

In the $150 range, plenty of speakers employ DSP to limit deep bass dynamics (and some other frequency ranges, too) that tend to cause distortion. But the Life Jacket 3 tamps down the dynamics too often, unnecessarily—it's hard to get past this, as it...

Altec Lansing Lifejacket 2

 

Bigger, better, more expensive

Extremely durable ; Good battery life ; Good range of Bluetooth connectivity ; Loud audio ; Handy power bank makes it complete outdoor package

Lack of warmth in audio ; Heavy device weight ; Distortion at highest volume

The Altec Lansing is a good speaker unit with much better audio performance, enhanced durability and longer battery life. It can also act as a power bank, thus making it an ideal outdoor unit. However, a slight lack of audio details and distortion of...

Altec Lansing Life Jacket 2 Review

 

You would be hard-pressed to find a more outdoor-ready portable speaker than the Altec Lansing Life Jacket 2. It is big and bulky compared to other speakers, so finding room for it in your bag or pack might be more bothersome than it is with smaller...

This speaker is extremely durable and waterproof.

This speaker is bigger and heavier than any other in our review.

This speaker is a great choice for heavy outdoor use, though its size affects the ease of portability somewhat.

Altec Lansing LifeJacket 2 Review

 

The LifeJacket 2 is an average sounding speaker, but it doubles up as a phone charger, and it's pretty much indestructible. It's definitely not for everyone, but if we had the kind of lifestyle where it would make a difference, then we would probably...
