Summary: These are Really bad for $80. The sound is super hollow. Don't believe the "basXport" crap..there is no bass. I have no idea why these are $80. Cheap Altec Lansing speakers you can get for 20-$40 have much better sound overall than these.

Summary: According to reviews that I read, these speakers are the bomb. I bought them because they have separate bass and treble controls. I have trouble with my hearing, most notably, need more highs, less lows, for use watching Netflix and Hulu Plus, and listening to music on my computer.
Summary: Speakers were fine for a while. They had decent tone and a nice look on my desk. After a year and a half of reasonable use (warranty is for 12 months), any movement in the volume knob now creates hissing and loud popping in the left speaker. Dissatisfied with spending $100 on this junk.
AT THE 1.5 MARK, THEY MALFUNCTIONED AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED!

Summary: At first they were great! All the great things you've read about in all of the other great reviews. WATCH OUT FOR QUALITY though! I've lived in the same place for the last 2 years and I purchased these speakers after hours of research - looking for a speaker that had a fuller sound, was compact, and...
Summary: These speakers sounded great. I was very happy with my purchase. Unfortunately they turned out to be shoddy made garbage and they broke after about a month. Judging from other reviews I'm not the only one this has happened to.
Summary: OK sounding speakers for the money. Unfortunately, within six months, both audio input connectors failed (one was broken out of the box, but I just used the other one until failed). Thought this should be an easy warranty repair issue. Wrong.
Summary: I bought this pair less than 10 months ago and about 2 months ago a loud hissing, sound started happening occasionally. No matter what I did I could not faithfully reproduce this hissing, loud crackling sound. I'm assuming there's a short.
Sound quality ok for the price, but shoddily made.

Summary: What a disappointment. After some diligent shopping for a PC speakers under $100, I settled on the Creative Labs Gigaworks T20 from amazon.com. Setup was no problem, and I got it to play within 15 minutes.
Summary: These speakers were ideal, and I was really happy with them for the first 3 months... before they became just a couple of really attractive shelters to house static. This seems to be a reoccurring theme with this model from what I've been able to learn so far.
