Summary: A good example of how there are always compromises in low-end audio. For $40 sale these are pretty appealing in the target market. First off, the build quality is very, very good. Too good. Solid volume pot, with solid and weighted cabinetry. Angled design and vinyl finish is attractive. Unfortunately, the "horn port" bleeds out copious amounts of mid-range, making the already high-mid challenged drivers more ragged.
Pros: Inexpensive, ok bass response, very nice build quality
Summary: I bought a set of these after much deliberation with its aesthetic qualities being the deciding factor for me. The lead connecting the speakers is long, so if one were to place them at opposite ends of a bookshelf then it is possible to do so. Whether the speakers can functionally act as bookends is debatable.
Summary: Je les pensais un peu plus grandes, mais elles sont tout de même très belles. Par contre niveau sonore, ce n'est pas top, c'est bien pour regarder des vidéos, jouer à des jeux, mais pour écouter la musique, il y a mieux.
