Yesterday I got a set of Altec Lansing bluetooth earbuds and have them roughly set up. After an hour for them to warm up in the hellish cold of the almost-great-white-north they sound amazing! And for 40 bucks at that! Nice flat tone over all, but good hi and low response when a song gets heavy on them.
So needless to say I’m impressed that AL has stayed this good over the years (My HP NW8000 has speakers by AL and they are the best speakers in a laptop that I have ever owned). I am a bit of a fanboy because they have never really let me down and their stuff is about medium range to me. But when I connect them to my laptop it sounds like a 1940’s radio station on everything. Youtube, Rythmbox Net Radio, MP3’s, FLAC, whatever. It sounds like its being projected down a tunnel made of soupcans and wool.
So what gives? Why does it do that? Could the BT in my laptop not be up to snuff? These are only BT 3 HS or something like that (says it on the box, no idea what that even means) and I planned to use these on a trip I am taking to florida soon with laptop and all that.
