Summary: These speakers work fine for my laptop. They are USB powered, small and lightweight for portability, and don't cost much. Of course they distort badly if you turn them up too far and they don't deliver very good bass response, but they sound clear and crisp at low to mid volume. You get what you pay for.
Summary: These speakers have a lot of background static that keeps them popping and hissing whether or not there is audio coming from my computer or not. Curious about whether it was the computer or speakers, I tried connecting different different speakers. No static. So now I'm just a sad little consumer hoping to warn others off of these speakers. Spend the extra dollar or two for the next pricier speakers. It's worth it.
Summary: These speakers work in the everyday person use but if you want a really good sounding speaker system this is not what you would want to have. They look nice and look to be well made and light weight.
Summary: my son is young and just got his first computer. i purchased these so he couldnt turn the volume up and drown the house hold noise out such as the ringing phone or me yelling for him. they work great for this purpose. the volume dosent go up very loud. if you are looking for speakers you wont have to hear in the other rooms of the house these are it. the cost was nothing to. great value for what you get.
