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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Summary: Great sound and look! Not too many computer speakers out there with a wood finish. Just wish they came with mesh covers over the speakers.
