Great sound, but there's a cracking noise when not playing anything.

Summary: Let me start off by saying I found these at Best Buy for $39.99. Look there first. The sound on these are quite good for that price, the bass can get impressive. They look good as well. I tested them as soon as I got them and they can crank out the sound for a little 2.1 system. These are perfect for the room my PC is in, and should be perfect for any small to medium sized room. If your apartment/house isn't huge, these could probably suffice for a party.
Summary: Honestly, the speakers are good. They sound good. The only problem I have with them is the blue LED power light. It's quite possibly the most annoying thing ever. It's not slightly dim... it's extremely bright and constantly in your eye. If you plan on having your speakers on in a darker/dim room, forget it about it because this light will blind you.
Summary: Excellent speakers. Beware that these only have full range woofers. The small tweeter looking thing above is a passive reflex port at best. HOWEVER, with that said, these sound fantastic and are as bright as can be. Not a complaint in the world.
Summary: I just moved into a new house and after putting everything in is rightful place I was sitting down at the computer and wanted to listen to music from pandora radio. After listening for about 10 minutes I decided that was enough and to go investigate new computer speakers. I went down to the nearest Best Buy and looked at all they had to offer and narrowed it down to these and the Klipsch pro media.
Summary: You cant find better desktop speakers for the money, great hi end and low end frequency response and are loud enough for a good sized party. They are also very durable and magnetically shielded so you don't have to worry about them getting too close to your hard drives or disk drives, it would have been nice to have them bus powered via usb but they need a standard plugin power. This system is definitely the most amount of bang for the buck.
Summary: I have had these speakers for half a decade and they still sound just as good as new. They work great, are loud, and are good for any person who wants to listen to their music loudly without sacrificing the quality.
Summary: Have had these over 8 mos. now and working great...I bought them "like new condition" cuz the new ones were really expensive. These have theater sound in my living room. I watch a lot of movies with my husband and Grandchildren on my computer (I have a really big monitor) and the sound quality is perfect...totally worth buying if you need speakers.
