judt Average

kennedy d., Newegg
11 December 2009
  • Summary: Bought these for $8. It is just okay if you want to listen to loud music and not worry about distortions. It sounds awful at the max volume from your mp3 player or computer. Too much distortion. The on/off switch is a joke.
  • Pros: Very loud.
  • Cons: On/oss switch is terrible, almost impossible to use.

Didn't last long

SANDRA S., Newegg
11 December 2009
  • Summary: Not even worth the $10.
  • Pros: Convenient size, cord wraps around unit, adequate sound for what it is.
  • Cons: Crazy on/off switch, very difficult to turn. It required a battery change very quickly and then stopped working entirely. Very frustrating as I thought it might be the silly on/off

No External Power

  • Summary: My fingers are already hurting after turning off 2 or 3 times. Those reviewers who found power switch okay probably got better products. On mine, even replacing the tiny AAA batteries is a pain unless u have nails.
  • Pros: Impressive Sound quality
  • Cons: On-Off switch; Not possible to use external AC adapter

On-Off switch is a deal breaker

Matthew S., Newegg
22 January 2009
  • Pros: It sounds good.
  • Cons: The On-Off switch is horrible! I don't generally write reviews but I am for this just to warn people. Even before I saw RagingBuddhist's reference to 'stuck pickle jar lid', that was exactly what I was thinking. And the cord is pretty flimsy and short.
