Summary: Same as previous reviewers. I have had these speakers for a couple of years and each time I plug them in, they make me cring. There is absolutely no bass response. Most computer speakers today sound better than these.
Summary: These speakers are excellent for what they are. Most USB powered speakers require two cables, one for the USB power and one to plug into the sound input of the computer. This one sends the sound information over the USB cable; great for transportability.
Summary: The builtin speakers in my laptop sounded better and louder than these speakers. The Sony's highs are muddy and the volume does not go very loud (yes my laptop volume was all the way up). If you want extra laptop speakers for your presentations with clients look elsewhere.
Speakers stopped working days after warranty expired

Summary: I am an instructor. I needed a speaker system with a very small profile for international air travel. A friend of mine, who works for a major computer company, recommended these due to their size (though he did warn me the sound quality is average).
