Good speakers for the price

K. Patao, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Speakers are really cool looking. Fit perfectly on my desk and match my Mac stuff. The wire between both speakers is quite short, so I had to buy an extension from Radio Shack. Two gripes I have: 1.) If your computer is in sleep mode it emits a buzzing sound, regardless if your volume is muted.

It's 6 pin firewire product.

Keefer Hazlewood "Support Geert Wilders", Amazon
24 April 2011
  • Summary: It looks cools and sounds good, but if you own a 9 firewire MacBook Pro, you need to PURCHASE a 6 in pin to 9 pin ADAPTER, which is not included.

Great little speakers

Chris' dad, Amazon
4 March 2009
  • Summary: Bought these for my daughter's macbook and she said installation was easy and fast. She says they sound great out of the box and since they are firewire powered she can take them outside or along with friends to listen to music while studying or in studio.

Great speakers for my Macbook Pro

Michelle Salem, Amazon

  • Summary: These speakers are a great enhancement to my prized MBP. They are mellow and can crank loud enough for me to enjoy my music in Itunes and videos on Youtube.

Terrific Speakers

James B. Mactavish "thebiggfrogg", Amazon
16 May 2008
  • Summary: I have used these speakers for nine months. I am an English teacher in China and am constantly schlepping my trusting 12" iBook G4 to class to play audio snippets for my listening class and to play movies connected to a projector. I used to bring heavy book end speakers back and forth to class.

You pay for the Looks, not Sound.....

S. Lee, Amazon
18 March 2008
  • Summary: Pros: Cool looking, minimal clutter, looks like it was made for Apple. Cons: Pricey, just so so sound quality, somewhat noisy, stays on even when computer is off, no included AC adapter for ipods or other external devices. Let's be clear about these speakers, it's all about design.

Owen Rubin Review from MyMac.com

Tim Robertson "Publisher MyMac", Amazon
18 September 2007
  • Summary: Ok, I was intrigued by this unique idea, speakers that do NOT connect to the audio output jack on your computer, and did not use the already overcrowded USB, but rather are bus powered, getting power from your computer, connected to the FireWire port instead. But why do I need this?

Good Sound, Good Look

Ballerina "spidergirl", Amazon
19 July 2007
  • Summary: I just got these a few days ago and I like them. The sound is clear and loud without distortion. I like that I could use my Macbook remote to control the volume, too. I tried to use the adapter and plug them into my ipod, but I got a lot of distortion/feedback.

Lacie Firewire speakers are fantastic

D. Yamaguchi, Amazon
2 March 2007
  • Summary: I just received these speakers from Lacie after seeing them at Macworld in SF. They sound every bit as good as they appear. Clear, good imaging, actual low midtones and simple set up. Some wishes for future versions- 1) A carrying case would be nice- they are marketed as being portable.
