Altec Omni Jacket Ultra Review

The altec omni jacket ultra review is the perfect companion for your indoor and outdoor travel adventures. It has a long battery life, so you can use it for an extended time without having to worry about running out of juice. It also has a microphone, so you can make hands-free calls and use it as a speakerphone. The best part about it is that it comes with a universal mount, so you can place it anywhere you like.

The omni jacket is the latest in Altec's 'everything proof' portable bluetooth speakers. It's essentially the successor to their BoomJacket line, and has much of the same style and functionality. The big upgrade is that it's now IP67 waterproof, shockproof, snowproof rated and it floats.

It also has a new dual mounting point, and you can pair two units together for true stereo bluetooth playback. Just press the bluetooth button on both units for 2 seconds to link them. They also come with a built in smartphone charger and can remote charge a phone or tablet via bluetooth.

Another nice feature is that you can now pair it with your phone or device using NFC (near field communication). Just set it down on the speaker and it will automatically link up, as long as you have NFC enabled on your device.

The buttons are easy to use and are well labelled. Power, volume up / down and a bluetooth button. These are all multi-function, so you can pause or attend calls, and turn on voice prompt with the power button, or skip or repeat a track with the volume up / down buttons.
