You think just because you have a Notebook PC, that you have to have poor sound? Altec Lansing disagrees, and they prove it with their XT1 Notebook Speaker set. Read on to see how they perform.

If you own a Laptop, you already know that the sound quality definitely leaves a lot to be desired. It’s certainly not meant to be full of Treble and Bass, rather just standard sound so you know what’s going on. I actually think I would prefer to listen to music through a telephone than I would out of a laptop.
Usually, even the speakers that you get from your Laptop manufacturer, still are not the greatest quality, and deserve the nickname, “Tin Cans”. Altec Lansing has recently released their XT1 Notebook speakers, which were developed to give you superior notebook sound, that’s very easy to carry with you.
As noted in the previous section, the XT1 speakers are meant to give you great sound, and great portability. Firstly, the speakers are USB powered, which means that you do not require a power supply, which automatically lessens the load you will need to carry around.
