Summary: The speakers in my MacBook Pro went bad. Instead of getting them repaired I decided just to get a good pair of external speakers that run on the usb port. These speakers work great and sound great and love the carrying case because i travel a lot and it's very handy.
Crap Speakers just as bad as MacBook Pro's Crap Speakers

Summary: These external speakers were supposed to make watching movies on my MacBook Pro sans earphones more bearable. The middle-range volume coming out of these speakers barely rose above the MBP's own speakers! So I turn it up louder and what happens? Crackling. I really wish these had worked out for me.
Summary: These speakers are easy to use. The sound is amazing especially considering the low (3 watts) power consumption. They are powered solely off of USB chord so they don't even need to be plugged into the wall which is great! Good clarity and range from my mid-technical analysis.
Summary: I have been a live sound engineer for 30 years and music is is an important part of my life. I needed a set of portable, reasonable sounding speakers for my laptop. This is the second set I bought (the first ending up not being very portable at all) and I am extremely happy with them.
Summary: I just bought these to compare to my pair of V20s, and they just suck in comparison. The Bass is non existent in comparison, and the highs and mids sound absolutely tinny. Any sort of Equilizer work resulted in immediate distortion. I'm usually a fan of Altec Lansing products, but...
Summary: Excellent speakers, good sound. Plenty of sound for a laptop, easily portable with a nice protective case. Especially important is that they don't require an additional power source, only a USB port on your computer, which makes them good for world-wide travel.
Summary: These little gems are perfect for my hotel stays - I do a lot of traveling and these little guys really help bring a little home to me in hotel rooms while on the road. I am amazed how full their sound is and very easy to set up and USB plug and play.
