Altec Lansing was officially launched in the Philippines last October 19, 2015 at the Rockwell Tent in Makati as they announced their newest line of products under #EverythingProof.
Michael Bangayan, President of Banbros Commercial Inc., shared with us that the company was born in 1927 and was the pioneer in speakers. Altec Lansing has long been known for its superior expertise in sound quality, and this new line of outdoor speakers takes the brand to the next level.
Gabby Dahan, CEO of Market Maker, said that Altec Lansing was the first partner of the computer companies when it started booming. The name stands for legendary quality and craftsmanship. No questions asked about that as their products in the #EverythingProof line have already been tested.
So what do they mean by #EverythingProof? Well, their bluetooth speakers are waterproof, sandproof, shockproof, and snowproof. I believe it’s perfect for every Filipino in search of a very durable speaker to bring along their adventures!
They also describe their products as bold, progressive, authentic, competitive, and daring. I believe these are justified by how durable their products are and how they can fit a person’s lifestyle.
Quality meets unparalleled durability as these speakers are IP67 Waterproof/Dustproof/Shockproof rated, and even float on water. Dubbed “Everything Proof,” the Life Jacket and Mini H2O are surely built to last. Here are the products from their #EverythingProof line.
Price: P 7,250
The Life Jacket Bluetooth Wireless Speaker features great sound, voice confirmation, and an onboard microphone for clear, hands-free communication. It is packed with power features such as speaker phone with caller ID, voice confirmation and commands, easy Bluetooth pairing, and NFC compatibility. With 16 hours of battery life and power bank capability, you can remotely charge your smartphone anywhere and rock out all day long.
Here’s an actual photo while I tested the Life Jacket. It was still playing while it was submerged in water! A kuya even assisted me and dropped it a couple of times in front of me to show me that it is indeed shockproof.
The Mini H2O Bluetooth Wireless Speaker features an ultra compact design, voice confirmation, and an onboard microphone for clear, hands-free communication. With 6 hours of battery life, aux in, and an integrated carabineer, the Mini H2O lets you bring and enjoy music wherever you want to go.
I’ve actually been using this at home. Here’s a video of what it sounds like.

The Orbit is one of the most impressive power packed ultraportable Bluetooth speaker on the market today.

Great audio performance plus an onboard microphone for clear hands free communication, voice confirmation, aux in jack and up to 6 hours of battery life. The Orbit is the compact music companion for travelers.
I was able to test the Orbit speaker too! I can attest of the high sound quality it boasts.
Altec Lansing is not only about bluetooth, they also have a powerful speaker line-up and headphones. Currently, they are recreating their design for their bluetooth and the traditional power speakers.
I was also able to try this headphones (it’s not under the EverythingProof line) which really sounded cool, btw! I also loved the color.
They also have this pretty interesting speaker intended for showers – the IMW385! I really found it funny at first but they were right to market this here in the Philippines since Filipinos love to sing in the shower.
Brian Quigley, Asia Pacific Director of SAKAR International, said that Altec Lansing is not just about the product, it’s about the lifestyle. It was ranked 6th in bluetooth audio speakers post launch. Basically, anything GoPro can do with photo and video, Altec Lansing can do with music.
So what can Altec Lansing say with these products in their superior quality?
All new Altec Lansing models will be available in selected branches of SM Appliance Centers, Astro Vision, Astro Plus, Anson’s, and other gadget retailers nationwide. It is exclusively distributed by Banbros Commercial Inc.
