Sounds Tinny

August, Amazon

  • Summary: Sounds tinny. I would look for something else in the future and actually hooking up my computer directly to my stereo system they pissed me off so much.

Very classy, and jazzy, but unreliable.

  • Summary: I was mostly attracted to this product by it's aesthetics. I needed a simple two speaker system for my iMac and glass desk, and this seemed like the perfect choice. The audio quality was fair, but I expected more "punch" with these things. The product ended up only lasting 6 months before it completely failed. They are very attractive speakers visually, but I would not recommend if you need a solid set.

Good looking, bad working

Parker Hallam, Amazon

  • Summary: My sister got this for me to match my iMac and I was so excited to use them. They look really good and the setup was quite simple. While playing a constant tin can sound comes all the time and there is no bass available. I do not understand from where and how it comes. I do not recommend this.

Only looks good

  • Summary: Except for the setup which was easy, I am upset with every other aspect of these speakers. They sound terrible similar to the sound of tin cans. In every environment I tried them in, these speakers sounded tiny. I had to turn off the music while gaming as it sounded awful. This is an absolute disappoint for me.

Looks nice but...

Nelson Montenegro, Amazon

  • Summary: Looks like a nice pair od speakers from a well-known brand, but I have to say that I regret to buy this speakers and for similar price you should go running to find a Logitech or something else. There is something totally unexpectable from Altec Lansing: a constant and unavoidable static sound all the time as soon you turn of the system..., is not my voltage, is not my Ipod... is the speakers!

PLENTY of Midrange

  • Summary: These are unusual-looking speakers. Personally, I don't care for their appearance and they also sit awkwardly on my desk looking like they are halfway constructed. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however, and the pictures on the Amazon product page present a good idea of what to expect. These are actually pretty bulky.

Cannot recommend these.

Jim, Amazon

  • Summary: I cannot recommend these speakers at the manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) and I would hesitate to recommend them at half that amount (i.e., $40). I tested them in different rooms of different sizes with different audio sources. I listened to classical music on them from two web radio stations (BBC and WNYC).

poor sound

Seth, Amazon
12 December 2008
  • Summary: I was so excited to get new speakers to go along with my new iMac. I have these great 3 piece Altec speakers from around 1998 that came with my Dell, but I thought "why not get cool looking new Altecs to match my cool iMac" assuming they should also sound better....after all, it's been 10 years of R&D right? What a disappointment. They sound literally like the sound is coming from tin cans. I've played with equalizers to no avail. No bass.
