Summary: Besides the grainy sound, distorted vocals and lack of sympathy for those who are not deaf, these speakers leave much to be desired. If you are going to buy from this brand, get the set with the subwoofer - that set is fine, pretty great actually. These are garbage on their own. I danced on a pulled calf muscle the day I got these in the mail, when I hooked them up to my computer I instantly saw what a waste of effort it was.
Summary: These speakers by Genius are the worst speakers I have ever seen/heard in my entire life. These came with a desktop computer case, otherwise I would not have bought these. After trying to listed to music on it you'll feel like something similar to nails on a chalkboard: High pitched distortion and the bass is nonexistent. Earn your $12, save earth from these piling up on landfills and get Logitech or better. Cheap price on audio devices equals terrible quality.
Summary: I know, they are not expensive and what can you expect but, the volume does not go very high on these speaks and the cables are so short I had to add an extension cord to plug in the power and they have to be very close together on my computer desk because the cables are so short. Not worth the cheap price I paid for these... Ended up buying a better set... Don't waste your money.
Summary: I read a tip about making your flat screen TV sound much better even with cheap speakers because the speakers in FSTVs are allegedly very poor. The tip was simply plugging a set of cheap speakers into the headphone jack. So I thought I'd start at the cheap end and push my luck. Plugged these onto my 42" Samsung and boy, the sound was shocking and at full volume was like talking into a cup and lower volume than the TV had been. Really bad.
Excerpt: Co může člověk čekat od reproduktorů za cenu menší jak 180 korun? Nic... A to taky dostane. Plochý zvuk, který neřeší hloubky, výšky, nic. Zvuk vestavěných reprodukturů mého notebooku je o několik tříd lepší.
Excerpt: Iszonyatosan zajos, gyakorlatilag használhatatlan. Azért vettem, hogy fülhallgatóval is tudjak zenét hallgatni meg hangszórón is egyszerűen. Fülhallgatóval hallgathatatlanul zajos, semmit sem ér. Aki nem ordítattva hallgatja annak nem lesz jó. Ha csak a fülhallgatót dugom a gép fülhallgató kimenetére vagy más hangszórót teszek a gépre nincs zaj. Ócskavas!
Cons: Zajos, rövid kábelek, 21" monitort nem éri át a kábelek a két hangszóró között. Kb. 1 méteres jack és táp kábel van csak hozzá.
