Summary: Shouldn't say "tendency" when I mean "guaranteed" to distort. Turning the volume knob over 50% is a guaranteed bit of distortion. Are they acceptable speakers if you really don't need to hear much from your pc or any other source, sure. Are they acceptable for regular use? Nope. They were decent, almost good, for a few weeks, but that sound quality dropped with continuous use until one pair completely crapped out after a couple years (probably a short in the wiring and...
Summary: They were nice enough for the price until they started making awful scratching noises. I use them at work and don't dare turn them on now. Rather, I occasionally use the audio jack to plug in my headphones (it is closer than the computer jack)... but even that can be really difficult to use because it doesn't seem to be a perfect fit. Honestly, these things suck. The only reason they get 2 stars is for aesthetics (which I personally find important).
Summary: Logitech makes some pretty cool products, with interesting design specs, but these speakers are probably on the low-end in every way. Average sound quality and cheap materials made want to return these immediately. To top it off, they only output mono sound, even though the output sources were all stereo. Very disappointing. I'll buy Logitech mice in the future, but never speakers.
Summary: Seldom do I go out of my way to review a product. In the case of these particular speakers, I felt the need to talk about the poor function. While they do sound good and function great in the early stages of their product life cycle, the power supply tends to fade and eventually fails. I've owned two sets now, and regretfully, the only thing I've learned is to not buy these speakers - the power supply will fail.
Summary: I never paid attention to the reviews about the speaker dying after 4 months. I should have, because after two months of great sound, my speakers completely went dead. So I need to go and find and buy speakers again since the current one's have passed the warranty. Not worth the 20 bucks thrown out the window.
Summary: These speakers worked great from Feb-Oct. At that time, they crashed and sound totally distorted in all but the lowest volume. I do not use them often or loud. Mostly website audio. Loved them at first, now useless. I am attempting to use the 2-year warranty.
Summary: well i needed speakers for my new pc so i decided to get these becuz they were cheap and looked good. they got here in 4 days so it was 3 days early. i was listeing to music and they sounded nice and once i started listeing to rock and made them a lil more louder i started hearing static or sumthin. so i noticed that theres a limit to each song till it sound really nasty.
