Fantastic value

Citizen John, Amazon

  • Summary: If there is one thing to know about these speakers, it's the utter discrepancy between their price and their performance. They should not be sold at this price, or maybe all the others should be marked lower. This value seems to good to be true; one cannot figure it out. The appearance and texture is excellent. The ease with which they are connected to a computer jack and powered through that connection is impressive. The stereo sound - love it.

Buzzing

Alison K. Rempel, Amazon
16 July 2014
  • Summary: I had the buzzing problem with the two sets I bought. It seems to only be an issue when one uses the computer USB for power, but for me that was the whole point of these - speakers that would turn on and off with the computer. There is clearly insufficient 60 Hz filtering. With the my desktop, I was able to supply enough power that I could leave the manual volume control down low, which mitigated the buzzing sufficiently to make the speakers useable.

Great speakers, great price

Brendan, Amazon

  • Summary: These are fantastic little speakers! I bought these because I needed some speakers for my pc. I wanted something that I could do some gaming with and listening to music. But I also wanted something cheap and stylish. These speakers reached those expectations and then some more. These little things can get super loud, much louder than is really necessary. It has very clear and great sounding treble. Bass is on the lacking side, but that's expected from smaller speakers.

Best little speakers for the price!

  • Summary: My wife uses these at work for desktop presentations and for playing some music for her teams later in the day. They are USB powered and use the headphone jack on your laptop for audio so no drivers need to be installed! Plenty of output across all ranges but don't expect these little guys to be bass machines.

Overall Great Speakers

Kiersten Mattox, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: These speakers are great for my Macbook Pro and I am excited to use them this year in my dorm room. They produce clear sound and do what speakers are suppose to do. However, there is some feedback in the left speaker but other than that, they work pretty good.

decent for the price, I did receive a defective set.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm replacing a set of HP USB 1 speakers that must have got when they first came out, the sound was basically just ok for system sounds and voice, not for music. These are a nice upgrade for a just a set of USB speakers. Being portable you do not get much in terms of cable length. Left and right speakers can be placed 30 inches apart and there is about 30 inches of USB and speaker cable to go from the right speaker cube to your outputs.

ARCTIC SPEAKERS

DENNIS LOPEZ, Amazon

  • Summary: Very good sound from these speakers. Cool blue color. Comes with wire hookups. A little more bass on them would be nice, or add an EQ in the next series? Worth the money.

Buzzing

Anonymous, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: A lot of other reviews have mentioned it, but I also get a buzzing noise after plugging these into my computer's ports. Best way I know to get around it is to turn my computer volume up as high as I can to help keep the speaker's volume control low. However it works fine with no buzzing when I use my phone's AC adapter. Not sure if it is an issue that is associated with all computers, but would be wary before purchasing.
