Stunning Sound On-The-Go

The Altec Lansing is a high quality, portable sound system, with full-range drivers plus built-in-bass-enhancement technology for stunning performance. This lightweight and impossibly thin carry-along was the most compact speaker system from Altec Lansing at the time of production.

Revolutionary Slimness

With their development of ultra-thin speakers and the upcoming release of the iPod Nano, the product design, development and production needed to be swift and impressive. The process required agility and a tight collaboration with Altec Lansing’s electrical engineering team, to create an impressive industrial and mechanical design.

A “Nano” Speaker

With efficient project management and productive teamwork between Nekuda and Altec Lansing, we achieved our goals of creating a super slim, portable iPod speaker. Its efficient fold-away design allows it to easily fit into a small purse or bag for travel. Its superior compact and iconic design fits elegantly into the iPod Nano scene. This sophisticated speaker wowed the market, selling over 1 million units.
