Summary: Well, there you go. Took a chance and wasted $3.50. Plugged these speakers into the source, the volume of these speakers is lower than the source without the speakers. You can separate these speakers only about 10 inches, because the cables are joined at a Y connection into a single cable going to...
Summary: People why you hate to use your brain so much? Those are speakers with no power input. They can not get you more power then you have in line-out of device, which is usually designed for head phones. Do not compare sound to build in speakers in your device because they receive amplified input signal.
Summary: As the other 1-star review stated, the volume of these speakers is incredibly low and there are no volume controls to rectify the situation. Unfortunately I threw the package away before trying out the speakers so am unable to return the blasted things. Lesson learner!
These are great speakers for MP3's and small shortwave radios.

Summary: I have had my speakers for 10 years now. I purchased them from AAFES for $5 when I was stationed in Iraq in 2005. For what I paid for them, they are a tremendous value. These are not high end speakers, but they are great for small MP3 players, and a small shortwave radio that I have.
Summary: . This is the worst product I have ever gotten from Amazon. The are a substantial downgrade from the basic PC speakers. They are barely louder than headphone and much harder to keep next to your ears. Pass these by.
