Summary: I got these for my wife who basically wanted some cheap speakers to boost the sound output of her laptop. These work great and sound better than expected. I was surprised to find a $3.50 environmental fee added on to the bill though. For $10 speakers this is a %35 increase in the price that is not otherwise listed. I understand that this is probably a government initiative but NCIX should advertise this somewhere.
Summary: Loud speakers. Performs great but is tinny at higher volume and pitches. Tested by playing heavy metal. Audio buffs should get a pricier pair of speakers. Monitor must be 18.5 inches or less.
Pros: Plenty of sound volume. Crisp sound at lower volumes and for lower pitched sounds. For price and performance, it's excellent.
Cons: When sounds are at higher pitches from sources like riffing electric guitars and cymbals, they become less crisp and sound tinny and cacophonous. The speaker cable is made for monitors which are 18.5 inches or smaller.
