Summary: I purchased these to plug into an Airport Express we have in our bathroom. I was looking for speakers with USB connectivity because, in theory, they should simply draw power from the Airport without requiring a separate outlet. I'm pleased to say they work great with AirPlay / Airport. The sound quality isn't that great, but at this price + the fact they are in the bathroom make this a good purchase.
Summary: The dimensions of these speakers are about 2.5" W, 3" D, 3" H, and their form approximates a perfect cube. Consequently, they occupy a very small volume. They are definitely attractive, modernisticly stylish, and the epitomy of simplicity. They are a metallic charcoal/silver in color and are made of a durable plastic material.
Summary: Folks, I tried these speakers on two different Computers (Win 7 and Win 8.0); One unit a Dell , the other Lenovo. Both have a wireless mouse as a pointing device. On both units a buzz (* interference) came though the speakers when one would move the mouse... So, back it went to Amazon. Amazon - always great and easy to deal with on all items. Yet the product in my setup is below expectations.
Summary: I tried using this with my desktop PC to replace a big set of speakers and sub-woofer that I just didn't need or have space for. Unfortunately, there was a buzzing sound coming from the speakers the whole time it was on. I tried them on a laptop, and the buzzing disappeared, so I'm using it for that now. I don't know if dinging them a star is totally fair, since they do work well for the laptop, but I wished they worked on the desktop, too.
Summary: I put these speakers under the monitor of my computer at work. They were easy to install (plug 'n play) and they sound better than I expected. They produce a full dynamic range, with some bass and they don't sound tinny. The sound is clear and accurate, even at a low volume appropriate for a desktop. They are wired together and they plug into any USB port on the computer. These are not wireless speakers, so you will have to route the wires around your desk.
Summary: These are great speakers for basic PC sound. Since they are powered via a USB port, you just plug them in and they work. There's no on/off switch, the speakers automatically turn on/off when the PC is turned on/off. The volume control is on the speaker back. The size is very small, which works great for a cramped desk space. Sound is good, not tinny, but not ideal for music listening either. They are great for basic sound, webcam use, etc.
Summary: I just purchased these speakers to go with my laptop and so far I am very impressed with the sound quality, both music and talk. I have Sirius internet streaming radio and these little speakers make listening so much more enjoyable when compared to the laptop's built in speakers. Their small size make them great for travel but due to no protective grill, the speaker cones look like they can be easily damaged.
