Decent sound, developed a high-pitched hum after 1 year.

Summary: These are decent speakers for the price. They're functional, but definitely not for the audiophile. I use them casually at the office and never play them very loud (because it's an office). After only a year, though, they developed a constant high pitched hum.
There is no reason you should buy any other small 2.0 system

Summary: I bought these two years ago when they were VERY discounted. I was deciding between a pair of $30 (also heavily discounted) higher end yamaha ear buds and these. I couldn't be happier with that decision. First and foremost, THESE ARE NOT PARTY SPEAKERS.
Summary: I bought these for my Mac Book Pro and they sound just fine for a small area. They sound good, are clear, and have decent bass. The only thing I don't like is they go to sleep when there is no sound going through them for a few minutes. This is annoying because then alerts and such won't be heard.
Summary: I bought these speakers for my brother as I bought the same speakers several years ago for myself and was very pleased with both the sound and quality of the product. But it appears that JBL's standards may have dropped significantly.
Summary: I bought these for my husband's computer. They sound very clear and handle every day computer sound just fine. Most music sounds excellent too. Small size fits nicely on the desk. They shut themselves off when not being used to save power. Volume knob on one speaker for easy use.
Summary: These speakers are fantastic. They are relatively small, but have great sound quality and can really blast music. I've had these speakers for months and use them all of the time and have never had an issue with static or interference like some of the other reviews.
Summary: We're hooked on Pandora and Netflix. We travel a frequently so I wanted to use my laptop and tablets as a portable entertainment systems. I have a high end gaming laptop with decent speakers, including a sub-woofer built in bottom of case however audio was disappointing.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I'm a definite loyalist to JBL and their quality speakers they make on all levels. After reading all the reviews on these, I bought them. The first thing that kind of irritated me- not sure why- but did, was that the quiet turn on is annoyingly long.
Summary: tldr - Solid set of speakers for the price. Goods: Small and easy to place. (Larger speakers and monitors can be a challenge for me with larger monitors especially) Full sounding for the size. (Lacks sub 100hz frequency extension - to be expected with small drivers and no woofers.
Summary: The sound quality is very good from these speakers and they look very nice. But I have two issues with them. There is an auto on/off that functions when there is a signal to them. It is a great idea because then you don't have to turn them off and on.
