Summary: These speakers are of such fine quality. Worth three times as much money. I love playing music from iTunes on my computer and now I can, thanks to these dynamite, well made, great looking speakers. Music sounds A THOUSAND times better than on the JBL speakers I use with my iPod. And, yes, the speakers are so easy to hook up, unlike, say the Harman Kardon Soundsticks. Cerwin-Vega is a company I'd buy from again.
Summary: I was going back and forth between these and the Bose series. Just to be clear, I was not interested in a set with a subwoofer. I wanted something that did not take up much space on my desk in my office. I was able to preview the Bose but I was not able to listen to these before I bought them. I took a chance on what others had said about them. I am sure glad I went with the Cerwin Vega speakers. They are everything I wanted and so much more.
Summary: The speakers stop playing after five usages. The power light is not working so it has an internal problem associated with the electrical power needed to operate the speakers. Before I had this problem, the speakers where doing very well and I was experiencing the quality sounds associated with Cerwin Vega.
Summary: These puppies are so worth every penny and more than their reasonable price point of around $80 bucks. I recommend for everyone but especially metal heads as these guys can handle most everything you toss at them. The switch for deeper sound in the back seems almost useless to me as Ii usually listen to them loud but at lower volumes is does enrich the sound a little richer. They can really crank for little computer speakers better than any others I have heard.
Summary: I hemmed and hawed over new speakers for my computer once my old system started dying on me. I thought I'd be satisfied with what my laptop could give me and just forget about spending the money for something better. Given how much time I was around my laptop at my desk, I realized I wanted something better than tiny laptop speakers for the foreseeable future. I tried a pair of the Bose Companion 2 and was unhappy with the muddy sound overall.
Summary: These are great - we have a loaner TV and the sound isn't so great - so these make all the difference - plus - with the earbuds plugged in and the TV on mute I can watch TV late at night while the wife is able to sleep right beside me.
Summary: These speakers are great! I am using them in a room were I have Genelecs as my mains, and they are great near fields! Wonderful for reviewing mixes on smaller speakers. Nice tight bottom with artculate highs. Love having a quick aux in on the rront for any device that needs to be heard.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: This is a very nice set of speakers! I have them hooked up to my computer and I ran various types of music and games thru them and everything sounded superb! The highs that come out of this speaker are nice, crisp and undistorted. The bass that come out of this is nice and tight. Now keep in mind, there is only a 3" driver in these speakers so if you're looking to shake the house, you need to look elsewhere.
