Summary: For their size and price, these speakers don't sound very good and they aren't particularly portable. I had a smaller set of JBL speakers that were battery powered that sounded a good bit better. These speakers are probably too big to fit in your laptop bag.
Pros: USB powered, so no batteries to deal with.
Cons: Sound is not very good, not great for laptops without USB ports on the right side. Not very portable.
Summary: Directions indicate that when not enought power is available through USB, sound quality suffers and the blue light goes off. This happens and even moderate volumes. Maybe I just got a bad set.
Pros: Small Nice Carrying Case Simple
Cons: Extreme distortion at anything above low volume. Button controls are not user friendly.
Summary: For the price I expected more. However, they are supposed to sound better than a typical laptop's speakers, and they accomplish that goal. The USB connectivity is nice, and its exactly where all your money is apparently going with the $50 price tag.

While the fold out stands are a nice thought, when the volume is turned up, the stands begin to vibrate as the...
