Summary: These are simply the best computer speakers in this price range I have ever used. I'm sure you can pay a lot more for speakers that might give somewhat better sound, but at this price point these S220s can't be beat. I have 3 sets of these - on both computers in my home and on one TV. They give very rich, full sound.
A great pair of speakers for gamers and music lovers.

Summary: I purchased this item because my wife and I are avid music fans, and my wife is an avid gamer. I have to say that these speakers work better than my computers so called theater sound.The base is great and the speakers work wonderfully.I had a much more expensive pair of speakers about 2 years ago, and these sound much better.
Summary: I bought these to improve the sound of my computer and still be able to use it with my phone. I can do both. I love that they are compact and manageable. I am glad I got thes and not another.!!!!!
Great Sound, Can't beat the price, clear & deep bass

Summary: These speakers are one of the best, if not THE BEST for the price. Everyone that has heard my speakers cannot believe what great sound they produce for the price. I have a set for myself and recently bought another set for my grandfather. When he saw them he said, "these are the same size as my old ones!?" But when i hooked them up, he was BLOWN AWAY! The volume and sound quality improved 100%. The bass is very clear and gets nice and deep.
Summary: I actually picked these up looking for a center channel and sub for a very makeshift 5.1 computer setup. For that job, they weren't exactly amazing, but on their own I was pretty impressed.
Considering their size and price, these aren't going to be the biggest, loudest, fullest or clearest speakers around. But plugging these in and queuing up Bodom Beach Terror and I was caught completely off guard.
Pros: Impressive soundstage and timbre, decent response across most of the frequency range, cheap, inline volume control
Cons: Rolled-off highs, slightly raw sound, bass doesn't extend all the way down, subwoofer doesn't have big 'oomph', annoying cords
I just don't know what to say! Stop hesitating and buy now!!!

Summary: I bought this setup for my room and I don't know what to say. I never imagined getting the sounds that I get out of this thing. I adjusted the EQ settings and these speakers rock my little one bedroom apartment and some. (I can feel the vibration in the walls in my living room and this thing is in my room.) I needed something I could use to hear everything when listening to music and watching movies. I can really hear everything now.
Summary: Awesome sound. good materials. i don't like the volume pad on any type of speakers. (too many cords) i would like them even more if they had a bit more power. at low to mid volumes this set of speakers sounds very enjoyable.
Summary: Amazing! Our laptop had lots of distortion from the built in speakers. These sound great and were so inexpensive! We generally listen to music and watch movies at lower volumes and the bass is fantastic with these!
