Excerpt: My old speakers were these speakers. Worked fine for some time, then went on the fritz. They worked well enough for me to replace them with the same set. The only speakers I have to compare them to are the ones that are inside my monitor, and those were not up to my needs.These are a significant step up from the ones in my monitor; much more control of volume. They do what I need done.My one complaint is they are too light.
Summary: Used these to replace Dell speakers that came with my computer. While the highs are clear they lack any bass and therefore sound a little tinny. I'm disappointed overall but will get by with them till I find something better. I use the headphone jack to drive a quality speaker in another room and boy, what a difference. On the plus side, they have plenty of power.
