Summary: I was a little suspicious about purchasing this product because it was such a great price, but they arrived today and I hooked them up and they are fantastic! They are made well and very small but powerful!
Summary: Considering the price these speakers are great. Don't take up much space, connect fine with laptop and cell. I listen to a lot of bass intense music and there's no distortion with the help of an equalizer.
Summary: Altec/Lansing speakers have always sounded the best in their price range and these are another good example. The compact size allowed me to place them behind the cups in the kitchen cabinet to provide sound from my iPod or Kindle Fire while I am cooking. The sound quality is really good, especially the low end. The volume tops out where I would expect it to, much quieter than larger/expensive speakers. An excellent value.
Summary: Are magnetically shielded, but not RFI shielded...meaning a close commercial radio transmission may bleed through for a few seconds. I use them with an LCD TV and they improve the sound quite a bit. Decent, well-rounded, frequency response for low-cost speakers.
