OK sound that lacks deep bass but does the job for the price

Low decibel distortion

Nathan R., Newegg
13 February 2012
  • Pros: Small, USB power source, clear sound. Great take-along speakers for laptop or notebook.
  • Cons: Distortion at low decibel levels, narrow frequency range (mids and highs only), not good desktop speakers. Better off purchasing Logitech S-120 or S-220 systems.

Good, but a little big

Polly Robinson, Amazon
23 October 2011
  • Summary: For some reason I thought these speakers would be about half the size they are. Final dimensions are 5"long x 4"tall x 3" wide. Nice speakers for a desktop, decent sound. Wasn't looking for Bose-quality, just something smaller than what I had, and these are just slightly smaller.

What a Nice Litte Pair of Speakers - ALMOST

Deeter, Amazon
6 October 2011
  • Summary: I purchased the Altec lansing BXR1220 speakers to use with my mac laptop. Mistake. The speakers just don't work with my macbook at all - they don't work in the speaker jack and they don't exactly fit into the headphone jack - they will if you work at it, but the reward you get for your efforts is a...

Altec Lansing mini speakers

RTM, Amazon
6 October 2011
  • Summary: I got these speakers for a flat screen Vizio tv that we use on vacation. The speakers are a great improvement over the tv's system and the cost was so little that I couldn't be happier with the outcome. They are not top of the line, but they are fine for my purposes.

Decent Laptop or Desktop For Quiet Environments

G.Rios, Amazon
8 September 2011
  • Summary: These are some pretty nice speakers but they for sure are not for your outdoor BBQ parties :) Rather, I would say they are good if you want to use them office usage where the volume is for your personal area only, so they worked for me because that's what I wanted - to be able listen to some of my...

Cheap product= Cheap sound

Mr. T, Amazon

  • Summary: You get what you pay for with the speakers: sound. That's all I can really say comes out of these speakers, there's no depth to them, if you have really bass-heavy music I don't recommend playing it with these speakers, actually any music for that matter.

Pretty decent for price

Georgina Saravia, Amazon

  • Summary: I didn't have any speakers for my desktop computer. I dont have a TV at the moment and wanted speakers so that I could watch netflix. While the quality from the speakers is good the sound is not very loud.

The Altec Lansing BXR1220 - Affordable USB Powered Bare Bones 2.0 Speakers, But Still Not Travel Friendly

Mark, Amazon
13 July 2009
  • Summary: are not designed for those who want audiophile quality sound. So far, the sound has not really improved much over the past few weeks after breaking these in for long stretches. Considering the price it's hard to get too demanding in the sound department.

Sound quality higher than $20 - but you lose a USB port.

J. Riga, Amazon
1 July 2009
  • Summary: Altec Lansing is a good name, I've owned a pair of their home audio speakers previously and they were crisp and clear. These little computer speakers are surprising for their size and the sound that they deliver. Not much in the way of bass, but the mids and highs are very clear.
