Summary: They're okay in the world of super cheap speakers. The slight hum they have even when turned all the way down is quite annoying. Bass is surprisingly decent for not having a sub (granted a sub would be leaps and bounds better still).
Summary: Excellent sound for the price, good and solid build. However be advised if you connect your headphones through them it will sound a lot worse. So if you want to switch between these and headphones I recommend getting a Y-splitter to pipe sound to both and turn off the speakers when you don't need...
Summary: When there is sound for these speakers to play, its fine and sounds quite nice. However, regardless of the volume setting, there is a residual hum which only stops when you turn off the power. It is very noticable and very very annoying.
Summary: These are top quality speakers, they sound great and you can use them for paper weights. These aren't the light plastic I've been used to seeing in entry level speakers. Thank you Chinese workers.
Summary: These speakers have a hum that is quite audible and unpleasant, even when the volume is at zero. Another reviewer also had this problem. Either it is a manufacturing defect, or poor design, but a $25 speaker shouldn't suffer from this problem.
Summary: For $20 the sound from these can't be expected to be room-filling but if you want an attractive and compact 2-piece set for casual music listening and computer "event sounds" you could do worse. Even at high volume there is little distortion.
