Summary: Great response from small speakers. The convenience of plugging into USB port makes for a great travel companion. Base response is slightly limited and the unit would be improved with base and treble control.
Excellent speakers, good bass, versatility in setup and use

Summary: I was concerned that such small speakers would sound tinny, lacking any substance, particularly in the lower tones. But they really shine. The bass is wholesome and solid. Just don't expect from these speakers what you would expect from larger PC speakers. Useful info that is not included in the tech details or description: 1.
Summary: E Z to hook up, very accurate sound reproduction at low to moderate listening levels. Some eq required, operating instructions make it simple. Quality product, deserving of the Altec Lansing badge.
Summary: I bought these speakers to go with my MacBook Pro to do on-site recording & mixing with my ProTools M-Box rig. In a word, these are great. I chose them over the Logitech speakers because you have the option to power them either via USB or via A/C- so you can plug your iPod or portable CD player into them, for example. Frequency response is excellent, and the imaging / detail is particularly noteworthy.
Summary: These ridiculously good looking (yes it looks better than in the pictures) speakers sound even better! I bought a set for my laptop so that I could use them to watch movies at the hotel on my business trips but I liked them so much that I bought 2 more sets, one for my office and one for my home computer for my kids. They're absolutely fantastic! Great buy, great sound and great price too!
Summary: I owned the previous version, which eventually gave out. But these are so much better! Unbelievable sound. Includes power adapter (a new feature) which means I can use with my portable MP3 or DVD player without powering up the laptop. Great travel case. As for the USB connection, mine works great and I can still use my laptop's volume control buttons. As for the headphones issue, that's a Window's issue, not these speakers.
Summary: Heard about these speakers on XM Radio and decided to buy and try them. When I got them was surprised at how easy to connect and the sound. Sound is just Fantastic. My laptop never sounded so good with all the music I have downloaded. Recommend these to anyone useing a laptop at home.
Summary: I ordered these speakers for $26.95 plus shipping from the "All" store. The price was soooo much lower than all of the other stores, I figured I would get a reply saying that the price was mistake. I promptly received the product, as advertised and in good condition, and it appeared that fulfillment was done by Amazon as Amazon was listed on the return address. The speakers sound great by my self-admitted unsophisticated standards.
