Summary: These speakers were a major disappointment. I have speakers that are about 5 years old, and wanted to replace them. But these Sony speakers were AWFUL - the sound was tinny, the bass was almost non-existent, and the sound was probably worse than that coming from my built-in laptop speakers.
Summary: I agree with the viewer preceding me. Very tinny. The ones I was using from my old computer sound 100% better. These are a complete waste. Two stars because I do hear the music but it sounds awful.
Summary: these sound a lot better when i use the "bass reducer" in my equalizer. this is because there is megabass built-in but no knob with which to adjust or turn off that feature. altogether functional, and better than the speakers built-into my notebook, but not great.
Summary: These have to be the worst speakers created. I expected a lot more from Sony, but I guess everyone is allowed to make a mistake. The only thing these are good for is to watch a movie on your computer if your laptop speakers are not that loud for dialogue, other than that I use my laptop speakers to...
Summary: I am not a hifist, but IMHO these speakers have very poor sound quality. Bass is lacking and sound is somehow distorted. I bought these for my work desktop, but I could not listen to these even 30 minutes. I am taking it back to the shop.
Summary: I would actually give these a 2.5 star. I love Sony products and have a ton of them which is why I chose these.....but they made a MAJORLY inferior product here. Very tinny sounding speakers. Sound almost like mono and not stereo.
