Summary: I purchased these for a small enclosed 6X6 office. They work well and sound fantastic in a small area. The worst part about these speakers (which is mentioned everywhere) is the Auto Power off feature. Makes listening to Classical music virtually impossible. Also makes using them as computer speakers virtually impossible since it takes 10-15 seconds for them to come on. As long as the music is constant they sound great.
Summary: I bought these computer speakers new from Best Buy. They worked okay for a week. The sound quality is average at best, but I wasn't expecting anything with decent bass with a $50 2.0 set of speakers. What is HORRIBLE about these speakers is the auto turn-off feature. It'd be great if it worked properly. Problem is, it doesn't. It will shut off mid-TV show when there's all kinds of audio signal to be heard, but the speakers shut off regardless.
Summary: Bought these through the warehouse which made them less expensive at the time.They came in original box. Now the price is has really come down. I stayed away from the wireless because of the reviews. I hooked them up to my computer in the office set and Pandora is going all day. The sound is pretty damn good for this type of speak. Hendrix sounds great with these little speakers. The on/off is really neat. You just turn the top on one.
Summary: Great little speakers, but with a with serious flaw: an automatic shutdown feature that puts them to sleep when no sound signal is received. In order to wake up, the speakers need several seconds after receiving a signal again before actually reproducing sound. If you pause your audio source for a minute or so, the speakers will go into "power saver mode", without warning, and will need up to ten seconds of a new audio signal to awaken.
Summary: The sound is great ... when it actually plays. It has an auto-off feature that kicks in only after a few minutes but requires a manual adjustment every time. After only a month this has now turned into a short in the speakers and only plays for a few seconds at a time. Extremely disappointed since the price is higher than direct competitors. Stick with Logitech or something cheaper than this.
Summary: Purchased this for games and audio listening. I didn't go for high end speaker because I can just stream the music to my stereo in my stereo room, right? The sound quality from these speakers exceeded my expectation for playing games and basic audio playing within my office.
