The speakers are great for what they are meant for...

Summary: They don't have great base but are fairly loud. They are designed to add speakers to an office monitor without the loss of desk space. Guess what, they do it well enough. They are on par with$25 Logitech desktop speakers. Oh, most of the monitors let you decide if you want the speakers to shut off when the monitor goes to sleep, so you don't have to listen to your co-workers music when they leave for lunch and forget to kill the tunes.
Summary: If you have a compatible monitor, this is a must! It wont provide amazing quality sound, but I listen to music at a decent volume and have absolutely no issues. I purchased 6 to install on my employee monitors, freeing up valuable desk space.
