Will go back to spending more with the full set including subwoofer.
6 July 2013
Summary: No connectivity to subwoofer, surprisingly cheap price but not exactly what you would expect from Altec Lansing. The sound was a bit disappointing from Altecs device summary. Made for a small room or headphones, lacking solid bass and treble is almost scratchy sounding. Not super clear when I connected to my Samsung laptop. Speakers are very light. You pay for what you get for with this product.
Summary: These speakers don't sound terrible, but their construction is awful. The on/off switch is a stiff knob instead of a button, and it requires two hands to operate because the speakers are so light. The only good thing I can say about these is that the volume control is independent of the power switch.
Summary: I like these speakers, but I could not give them five stars due to sound quality. They are very good speakers for the price and would be a welcome addition to any computer or gaming system but if you are really into high fidelity, then these are not what you need.
Summary: I understand why these are no longer available. I've owned these for 3 months after receiving them as a gift and the speaker with the controls already stopped working. They are VERY unstable and ANY amount of movement will knock one or both over. After a few days of them falling over, I got some double sided tape and taped them to my desk. The sound isn't anything special.
Summary: I bought these great sounding speakers to listen to my Ipod while in my hobby shop. They have impeccable sound for such a low price, a great investment! They take up very little room and fill the work area with clear crisp quality sound. Listening to these small speakers is like being in a small coffee house with great acoustics! They were very easy to set up also, just plug them into your Ipod and turn then on! A great investment!
Summary: I bought these at Wal-Mart about two years ago, and was astounded at the quality. Compared to the cheap Kinyo speakers I had been using before, these Altec Lansing speakers have much clearer mid-range and bass. The high range of the sound spectrum is also nicely clear, and the tone knob allows you to adjust how much of the high range you hear in proportion to the rest.
