Summary: I bought these to upgrade the sound of a small flatscreen TV in the kitchen which my wife found unlistenable. Since they are solid wood and flat on every face, we ended up making an improvised TV stand out of them (laying on their sides). They are certainly not audiophile or near-studio monitor quality, but for the price and purpose I have no regrets.
Summary: Thankfully I only paid $19 but given what I know now the most I'd pay is $10. They are very hollow and no bass what so ever. Some reviews out there praise them because they are loud and clear. I suppose that's true but I was hoping for something a little better. Maybe Edifier makes better sounding speakers but It will take a lot of convincing to ever get me to buy anything from them again. Upate: I added a Small Subwoofer to these and the sound improved dramatically.
Summary: These are decent computer speakers. They are in close proximity of where I sit so I don't really crank them up. I wouldn't say they are very loud so if you want high volume I would look elsewhere.
Summary: From other reviews I expected decent sound, but alas you get what you pay for. Originally intended to replace the Harmon/Kardon speakers that came with my old PC (photo attached - they are slightly smaller than the Edifiers). Disappointment started when taking them out of the box and seeing a wire connecting the two which is very short and cannot be disconnected. I was unable to place them the distance apart I wanted.
