When I crank these things a bit (say a tune you'd like to hear loud that has a big drum kit) ...

Summary: They're okay. That's it. An improvement over my previous pair, but at twice the price...not much. Light duty. I use them primarily at low volume while I work. Secondarily I use them to play music while I play guitar over studio monitors - medium volume.
Summary: I don't like the sound for classical music, can't say just why. Had old Harmon Kardon speakers about same size that sounded better to me. Maybe my 82 year old ears. So I use my old inexpensive magnavox earphones while I can't decide what to do about these. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
Excerpt: My needs: A 2.0 speaker system with good sound quality, not too expensive, and a smaller size. I spent several hours reading reviews of speakers and it came down to the Bose Companion 2 and these Creative speakers.
Excerpt: I bought the speakers to use on my iMac, to listen to a radio jazz show streaming from gmcr.org. I live on Second avenue and 4th street, the East Village, NYC. The traffic on 2nd Ave is fierce with sirens going all the day and night.
Summary: I agree with others who have complimented the bass and treble and been disappointed by the midrange. The bass is thumping but you can totally lose vocals especially at high volumes. That said, overall I was pleased with the sound from these. You would believe they were 2.1 rather than 2.0.
... with music but when people are talking it sounds like there in a tube or closet

Summary: I have this hooked up to my 24" TV in the kitchen & sounds OK with music but when people are talking it sounds like there in a tube or closet. Too much bass and echo,the control knobs do nothing.I will try the bose companion 2 & hope for better results.
Summary: Sound is good for the size. Bass is ok for just a pair of desktop speakers. Volume is very minimal hooked to my home computer. Ended up putting my old Altec Lansing speakers back to the PC. Disappointed with these. Nice package but not so powerful sound.
