Guaranteed to please those kids listening to their mobile phones in speaker mode at the back of the bus almost as much as it will those who just want to sit in the park reading a newspaper with a musical accompaniment, Orbitsound’s T3 explores new territory in personal audio.
About the size of a slim digital camera or iPod classic, the Orbitsound is intended to be a wearable device. The system uses the same technology - airSOUND Stereo - as the acclaimed T12 speakers. The technology delivers sound at a quality and volume others have a hard time matching.
The system ships with a lanyard which you use to wear around your neck. Once it’s around your neck you’ll find yourself at the centre of a stereo playback experience that seems almost as good as the music centre in your front room.
You need to switch the AirSOUND system on to appreciate the clarity and power of the playback. Place it on a table (with the lanyard end facing you) and you’ll still enjoy excellent sound reproduction even a metre or two away from the system - it pushes out 8W of total audio power. It measures just 10.2 x 6 x 1.9cm and weighs 115g. Despite its size, the T3 delivers a fair whack - you could sit around a fire or at a picnic table with it and hear music at better quality than you’d expect from a transistor radio.
In favour of making this device compact, there’s no dedicated iPod dock. Instead you connect your media player or other device using a supplied 3.5mm line-in cable.
The T3 hosts a Lithium-ion battery which offers 10 hours playback from one charge, which itself takes two hours. We’re very impressed with the AirSOUND technology in this - and its travel credentials are spot on.
