Summary: I plug my headphones into this pair of speakers as I did with my first pair of Genius speakers. Now with the stronger amplifiers, I can hear better with my headphones too. These are actually my 4th pair of Genius speakers and I have always been pleased with them.
Pros: Great speakers, great sound, better for listening to music on my PC.
Cons: The only Con is weight. The box these were shipped in was heavy and thus cost more than usual for shipping. That being said, they are totally worth it. They are tall and heavy but produce great sound so they are worth it to me.
Summary: Bought this set to replace a pair of M-Audio speakers. The M-Audio speakers died at around 13-months, pretty common for that brand. Can't say how long these will last, but my initial impression is positive. They have very good sound for computer speakers. I have listened to a variety of music and a movie and could not be more pleased. One word of caution- make sure you have room on your desk as they are fairly big for that application.
Summary: Has the capability of being loud. Very good bass from lower speaker. Upper speaker kicks out your highs and mid sound. With a very nice sounding tweeter on top. Very clear exploding sound that can fill a room with ease. Best speakers I've ever owned. Other than my car system. Which is not comparable. As far as computer speakers go not many compete. I use it with my coby mp620. I also use it with my dell venue 8 tablet. Over all the sound of these is straight up amazing.
Summary: First, I went back and forth on giving a 4 or 5 star for sound quality because the bass on these speakers are deep, even on a low setting, depending on which song I'm playing. I have a very little hearing in my right ear when it comes to low tones and higher tones is also limited but not as bad. So when I bought these speakers, it was for more bass, a clearer/sharper treble and I think it has worked almost perfectly.
Summary: The audio quality of these bookshelf speakers are excellent for the price--I paid $55 for the pair. The build is of good quality, as is the audio output. These speakers provide a smooth and even sound across the audio spectrum; no base boominess, no shrilly highs, but, a balanced sense of presence. Also, you can listen to these for hours without the weariness that is somewhat typical of smaller speaker systems.
