Summary: Creative is such a good computer speaker company, they deserve a lot of credit. These are not my favorite speakers, though. The tweeter is good...Accoustic guitar or mandolin sounds as if someone is sitting right on my desk playing. The bass is pretty good, although sometimes a bit muffled on higher volume. But the midrange seems off. Often the high range sounds good, the bass is fine, but the vocals in the mid-range get lost in it all.
Summary: I like to have music in my office at work, and I have a door i can close. I don't need something loud, but I just couldn't stand the 1/2" speakers on the laptop. So, I just bought these. The last time I bought speakers for work, it was a set of Harman Kardon HK-595 speakers (another 2.1 speaker set-up) which has a subwoofer which is big enough for me to use as a laser printer stand. I got fired two days later. So, I decided to get something a bit smaller.
