Summary: These LaCie USB Speakers are excellent for the price. They are powered and the sound signal comes entirely by USB, so you only need to run one cable to your computer to drive these speakers. They are intelligent, too, being recognized as an controlled as a USB device by the OS X operating system. For the price, these speakers deliver enough volume to fill a small room (about 15 x 15).
Great for mobile solution of spoken word or interview audio during editing.

Summary: Design is great. I'm using this with my laptop for mobile situations and am very happy. However, the fidelity is average as far as a "mobile music" solution. I've noticed that vocal and spoken word audio is best suited for these speakers. If your playing straight music and expect a full-spectrum sound then you may be disappointed a bit. Like I said- for remote editing of footage I shoot (and capture) it beats the heck out of my laptop speakers.

Summary: The first thing that impresses you about these speakers is the quality of the box and packaging. They would be fun to open on Christmas morning. The speakers are nicely constructed. The wiring stores easily within the two speakers; you only need to expose the minimum amount for your installation. Super easy plug-n-play in Windows 7 - drivers were found and installed in less than a minute. Excellent range of adjustments to make them perform to please your ear.
Dynamite little speakers for fixed or mobile use including with iPods

Summary: As something of an audiophile and after reading the earlier reviews, I ordered these speakers with some trepidation. But after auditioning them connected to a MacBook Air I have to say these are dynamite little speakers and very good value. They produce more than adequate volume, reasonable base extension for their size, and good clarity and definition in the mid and high range.
Summary: I really like the look and design of this speaker and Lacie brand sounds promising to me in terms of product quality. So, I design to get the item though I had never done research about its performance before. After I received it and spent an hour with it. The sound quality is unbelievably bad. The sound is unclear and dull. Mine even has noise spikes every 2-3 minutes noticeable esp when you sit 1-2m far from it.
