Summary: If you just want to listen a bit of music while working with your computer or just for the basic sounds, for the price these speakers have a very good sound. Don't expect them to sound like a real sound system so don't buy these if you want your computer to be your main Hi-Fi if you expect top quality sound. Mine don't look exactly the same as the photo, there is none of what looks like an opening at the top and the speaker itself isn't the same either.
Summary: First of all, this is a great set of speakers. They sound good to my ears, and I play DJ Magic Mike pretty loud through these and a subwoofer. As far as the pics go, there's no port at all on either speaker, and there's a thin screen over the speakers, improving looks and providing minimal protection. For these reasongs and because the casing around the speaker itself is completely flat, I'm betting they just updated the model slightly.
