Summary: i bought these at a goodwill for 3.99 (not including tax) and it came with the 3.5mm male and wall plug and this system works fine. they get the job done for any step up from standard speakers.
Summary: These little speakers are ideal if you have a space problem in your computer area. They are not suitable for the confirmed audiophile, but if all you want is to be able to hear your computer alert sounds, and play an occasional snippet of music when reviewing a CD these are perfect.
Excerpt: I received these speakers when I orginally purchased my computer. I paid about $50 for them. The reason why I picked these speakers is because I trust going with a brand like Altec Lansing and that these speakers can handle music and multimedia just fine. After all, that is …
Summary: The biggest pro of these speakers is the price. If you're on a tight budget, like I was when I bought them, you probably won't find a better deal. I found them at Walmart for about $15. The biggest downside is the volume control. If you turn them very low, you get a very poor quality sound.
Summary: Bought this influenced more by the price. However was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. Nice little speakers with good quality out-put. Surely a good deal for people who prefer listening to music at a low relaxing volume.
Summary: For the $10-15 price range, these are fine...I bought a pair for $12 somewhere and am going to order about 20 more to add sound to some office computers. Very low profile, very light, kind of a classic look...not "incredible" sound, but I've heard worse in some $50 speakers.
Summary: I just got these at a local store and they just really blow!!! I was swayed by the brand name and the great price (although higher than Amazon). It's true when they say you get what you pay for... rock-bottom price = rock-bottom performance. Terrible to say the least. Mine are going back right now.
Summary: I purchased these at Target for $15 US. They're simply the best sub-$20 PC speakers I've ever used. Sound quality and volume control are excellent, and the design is handsome. If you need cheap speakers and find these for under $20, buy them. Dont waste time searching for a better deal.
Summary: After reading other reviews I finally decided to get these speakers. I was not expecting as much as I got. The speakers are nice sized (about as tall as my laptop open, 12 inches app.) and have incredible sound for the value.
