Excerpt: Great sound at a good price. Only negative is the super smooth volume ring which makes it slippery and hard to get a firm grip on it to adjust the volume.They should use a volume dial with ribbing around its perimeter.
Summary: I bought these speakers several months ago and they've been working great every since. They play pretty loud if you want them to. You wouldn't think they would. You would think that they would not go very loud, but they do. If you have your window open your neighbors may think that you have a surround sound stereo system or something. This actually occurred. I was playing some music that I downloaded on my computer. (Actually on several occasions).
Summary: The speakers work good. But then you plug in your headphones, and the volume drops way down. You have to have the volume all the way up to use headphones... and then... if you unplug them look out! crazy loud.
