Summary: The sound quality was nothing to write home about and the max volume is unimpressive but it is light weight and require minimal power to run (it is also nice to have the optional battery power choice).
Summary: I wanted a desktop speaker for my ipad. I am corporate fed veal in a cubical farm ;) , and like to listen to ambient music, BUT I have neighbors of course. So I wanted something for a desk, that has a directional aspect and can either stand up or lay lengthwise, and is small.
Summary: I wouldn't pay the $30 that the ad says these are worth. But, for around $15, they are a bargain. Really good sound, and nice clean design. I did have an issue that they buzz if you have the green speaker wire plugged in and no iPod attached. But, that might have been my weird house wiring.
