Summary: AWESOME till subwoofer starts to buzz. I used to be a big fan of JBL - still somewhat but their products really don't last. I am extremely careful with my electronics and dont move my speakers once they are on my desk. I have owned the JBL creature speakers and these JBL spyro speakers. Both speaker sets I have loved for about 1.5 yrs, awesome sound quality all around and great bass. Impressive is the word as the speakers are so small and cool looking.
Summary: I'm very happy with these speakers. I needed them so I could watch a DVD on my computer while I walk on the treadmill, and they needed to be loud enough to hear over the treadmill and my footsteps. Success! I only wish they had a remote so I could adjust the volume from a distance.
Summary: These sell for over $100. Don't pay that. Surf around and pay more like $65. For $65 these are good little speakers. I liked mine so much I bought one in every color and gave them out as gifts. They don't play VERY loud but loud enough. If you have children with iPods this would make a great gift.
Summary: Recently my JBL Creature II speakers decided to die on me, so was looking for a replacement. I really was happy with my creature speakers, and had actually planned on purchasing another set. Unfortunately, JBL discontinued the creature speakers, so I had to set out to find another speaker system for my iMac. I stumbled across these, and read some of the other reviews. They were generally positive. Although I liked the design of the creatures better, the spyro isn't bad.
Summary: I only wish they had provided some type of clip to put the flower tweeters on my iMac. The bass unit is a little clunky (large) for my taste. But it sounds ok, at least better than my dying Logitech 3 way system did. The bass is really good, I can't leave the music playing all night the way I used to, it travels all through the house, even at low volume. BTW, "Fuchsia" means "Pink", not purple, as my apparently poorly calibrated monitor led me to believe...
Summary: Very nice product, easy to setup, and stylish. Some complaints about adjusting volume are valid but with persistence and holding tightly, the adjustment works fine. Highly recommended, nice looks, great sound.
Summary: I bought those speakers only because of the design. They are cute and original, no questions, but the flowery satellites have a vey annoying habits to fall face down, since they themselves are light and the cabels are thick. The volume control does work, though I was a bit worried about it, after I read the reviews.
Summary: JBL - Spyro - 2.1 Speaker System (Black) I love the sound quality the only problem I've had was the volume buttons you have to push just right but overall a great choice to enhance my computer sound system
Summary: Looks good, purchased for daughter for Christmas so I really don't know how it works, will update after Christmas. Well it's after Christmas and daughter loves them, she hooks them up to her laptop at college and plays movies, great sound, deep bass. Watched Transformers and it sounded just about as good as my home theater surrond sound. Great bargin, she says it looks cool. All her friends are amazed, they have never seen anything like them.
