Are your anemic laptop speakers not getting the job done when you’re out on the road? Let the Altec Lansing Orbit USB Speakers ($50) pump up the volume. Sporting a compact design, they should fit comfortably down into your laptop bag.

The Orbits feature Altec Lansing’s Audio Alignment technology for superior sound, a single USB connection for audio and power—no bulky power brick required—retractable stands, internal cord storage to minimize tangling, and an interlocking design that lets the two speakers connect to each other, turning them into a highly-portable tube.
