Summary: In short: They sound okay, but not that great. The only huge problem I had with these [at first] is that they aren't very loud. I don't listen to music terribly loud anyway, so it's not like I'm looking for really intense power.
Summary: I was looking for a resonably priced 2.1 speaker system. But the sound quality has to be at least better than the speakers that come free with most computers. This setup does not cut it at all, a bigger midrange speaker would have cured this issue. Sorry JBL.
Summary: I ordered these and returned them. They sounded to me no better than the typical tinny computer speakers. Also, the touch sensitive volume controls are annoying, since you can't tell what the current volume setting actually is (and the speakers presumably forget the setting when power is lost).
Summary: Hello to all from a professional musician. I was looking forward to receiving these speakers so my music would sound fuller and more detailed. Many people reviewing the product on Amazon mention the "powerful bass" and "crisp highs." Yes, these speakers have both, but there are practically NO MIDS!
Good looks, terribly lacking in the sound department

Summary: First off, I guess I should say where I'm coming from. I mix music albums so I spend many hours a day doing critical listening on expensive speaker systems. My ear seeks out errors in sound...it's just what I do. I did not expect sound that rivals may main system out of these speakers.
Summary: Two words sum up these speakers for me: instant disappointment. I suppose I shouldn't have expected so much. I guess I'm just too cheap to pony up two bills for computer speakers. So, let me evaluate them based on price and value, rather than sound quality alone (for that is awfully subjective).
Summary: ho letto i commenti scritti dagli altri e sono rimasto sorpreso che nessuno abbia detto che queste casse in fondo fanno davvero pena. per quello che offrono sono davvero troppo costose. indubbiamente sotto il punto di vista estetico sono stupende,ma per il resto lasciano molto a desiderare.
