Not the quality to expect from an name like Altec-Lansing

Summary: Sound is not too bad although a little nasal in the high end and the bass is way to boomy and mushy. I finally stuffed the sub-woofer baffle with a piece of Styrofoam and put duct tape over the baffle opening, essentially making it an air-suspension speaker, and then it treated bass more like it...
Summary: Got these as a gift and love them for the great sound. For the size, sound and bass exceed my expectations. But it did not take long for the first interference problems to occur. First the occasional "POP" then "hissing" and "crackling" noises.
Summary: I agree with many of the reviews of cell phones interfering with the speakers. I have had both a RAZR and now myTouch from T-Mobile and the phone being within 5 feet of the speakers causes interference, totally unacceptable in my opinion.
Summary: These speakers are fine for the price; HOWEVER, if you are looking for shielded speakers, look elsewhere. While in the product description it cites "magnetically shielded" as a feature, I have had trouble with my GSM phones (AT&T network, both a Sony Ericson and iPhone).
Summary: I use these at work and only have one complaint, since they don't have a ground prong on the power cord, it picks up radio stations. I radio station problem is rare, my guess is that I live in Florida where it is always around 95% humidity and with that, seems to make the radio stations barely...
Summary: It is a shame that Altec could easily have made this a five-star unit, but chose instead to do sleazy cost-cutting garbage just to squeeze a few more pennies' profit. There are two things wrong with this unit, which sounds great for the money by the way.
Summary: I own a pair of these speakers for over 3 years now. They sound relatively good but are very bass biased. I do not recommend these speakers if you use a cell phone, they pick up the interference even when I move my phone 3 to 4 feet away from the speakers. And the interference is LOUD.
Summary: Ever since I got these speakers, I've only had problems with static and radio signals being picked up. I called up the company, and they recommended moving the speakers away from my wireless router--well, the wireless router happens to be in a different story of my house, so I just don't think it...
