Summary: I have owned these for a few weeks now, and I am very happy I bought these. I did a ton of research on sub-$100 speakers, and I'm sure I bought the best ones. The criteria I had was that it had to be active - so I didn't want to buy an amplifier just to have decent sound in my small apartment. And also it had to plug into my computer so I can play jams via my macbook. Overall, the sound is really crisp with deep resonating bass and very clear highs.
Loud, clear, and pretty darn good lows for a compact speaker.

Summary: Great sounding speakers, especially given their compact size. Solid construction. Better then most in their class -yes BOSE included. Unless you go for a higher end 2.1 set up, these 2.0 can't be beat for the price.
Summary: These speakers have surprisingly high fidelity. I listen mostly to jazz & geek/mathcore & these speakers exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend these speakers...no reason to pay more for a 2.0 speaker set.
