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. Unfortunately the sales person did not really know the products performance (how can a salesman know all of them). However I ordered… the service and delivery was without flaw, BUT, the speakers just barely do the job.

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: Nothing impressive here !!nice midrange and tweeter but not much better than the speakers that came with my computer for free, You can DO much better for the price The klipsh 2.1 are close to the same price and woop these by a mile these are well built but not worth more than $30 NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL
A Pair of Decent Speakers for A Small Space ~ Depending On Usage
5 May 2009
Summary: I thought I had it made when I bought a small pair of Altec Lansings, which I bought at Goodwill for $5. After a few years, they started to "fizzle", and I needed another sound alternative. After researching the field, I took a chance on the Creative Lab group, and it's been an interesting learning experience. I am an audiophile, a DJ, and currently live in a small space. I needed speakers that were built very well, which would withstand constant use.
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.
Summary: Pros: Great, crisp sounding treble / mid Compact design Cool looking, if you take covers off Cons: Pathetic bass Low power Overall: These would be great for someone who doesn't like to listen to audio loud and hates bass. They sound great but are underpowered. Creative clearly went for quality over quantity but a little too much.
