Summary: I have been using these speakers for over a year now. (It's 2014). They are clear and free of hiss or popping. I like them so much that when I was asked to buy speakers for another office, I was sure to get this speaker.
Summary: I use these in my office to play soft background music for clients both in the waiting area and in my room. They have excellent sound quality and hook up to any headphone jack. Their small size allows me to place them behind the chairs where they are not seen but heard. I absolutely love them.
Summary: These are the "cutest" speakers. It helps if you like the color red. The sound is great. Easy to install. I have not used ear phones with them yet but there is an easy to see plug-in for them. They were delivered before the suggested date.
Summary: I got these to connect to my computer at work, so I could plug headphones in to listen to music (my headphones couldn't reach my tower). I've used them pretty much every business day for 2 years, and I've never had a problem!
