Do not buy these. Especially If you will be using a cell phone or have a router close by.

Summary: Speakers have NOT magnetically shielded. My phone can be 5 feet away and they pick up interference from my cell phone. How do I know this? I turn on airplane mode and bam, no more annoying buzzing. My router, same issue; static but not as annoying. Ok, so e-mailed the company to ask for a solution.
Good price & sound, minor frequency interference and no manual power switch

Summary: I was a bit concerned when ordering these as the brand was not one I'm familiar with and the price was low for what they claim to do. However, I'm very happy with the sound offered by these. The only downside is that they seem very sensitive to cell phones within a small radius (about 3 feet.
Summary: Initially I was not impressed by these speakers; they had a muddy bass and lack of clarity in the treble. Compared to my Fostex Monitors (admittedly that cost 8x the amount), these Genius speakers weren't worth my time.
It's annoying enough for me not to use the headphone jack ...

Summary: The speakers are decent enough: loud, clear, good-looking. They're bigger than I aniticpated; and as other customers have reported, the blue power light is too bright. One considerable annoyance: if I plug my headphones into the speakers, there's a low -- though certainly audible -- hum, which isn't...
Summary: Received these speakers as I was intrigued by the looks, with the nice reviews I decided to give it a shot. They are indeed very nice looking speakers, and the wood grain is a real nice touch.
Summary: The sound is ok, nothing that special. I have no clue why the the "on" light to be soa bright blue! Little electrical tape fixed that. As well the cable from the speakers to the computer is not that long!
good sound and great bass adjustment available as well

Summary: Immediately had the "buzzing" noise as described in previous posts. I just unplugged and reconnected and it has gone away. Overall, good sound and great bass adjustment available as well. Nice set for the money!
Summary: Surprised by the quality of sound from these speakers for the price. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a small pair of speakers with good sound quality. I have them hooked up to a small TV and blueray player in the garage for streaming pandora.
