  • Watch the model # if you already own a Mini Life Jacket 3

    At the time of writing this, the model listed for this product on BestBuy.ca is, "IMW 478-BLK", "Mini Life Jacket III". I ordered the product, and upon receiving I found that this was actually "IMW478S". Note the S. The product is actually the Mini Life Jacket III-S". This is problematic for those that wish to "True Wireless Pair" with an IMW478. The "S" model, which has "House Party" pairing will not pair with the IMW478, "True Wireless Pairing". This is from the Altec Lansing FAQ, "CAN A TRUE WIRELESS SPEAKER PAIR WITH A HOUSE PARTY SPEAKER? Unfortunately, True Wireless Pairing and House Party Pairing are not compatible and will not pair together. A True Wireless Speaker will only pair together with another True Wireless Speaker and a House Party Speaker will only pair with another House Party Speaker." So, although the AMW478 and AMW478S are both Mini Life Jacket III's, the are not at all the same product. This is very deceiving by Altec Lansing. Be warned.


  • Great speaker
