Summary: No real base but if you have a need to hear your laptop, mp3, or small TV better, these work just fine. The sound quality is acceptable for the price and though they're not really small enough to keep in your backpack or laptop case these are fine to keep on the desk to quickly enhance the sound of your portable device.
Summary: Considering the price, the sound coming from these USB-powered speakers is remarkable. I guess if you are a high end audiophile go ahead and spend tons of money. For me, this is the best $10 (+ shipping) I have spent in a while.
Summary: They are high quality speakers for the average computer user. We only use them for music and videos. They are small with a great volume output. We were not looking to spend much and are very pleased with the product for the price.
Summary: I bought these speakers for my son; his PC is a slim form factor HP and the internal speakers were not quite up to snuff. These speakers kick pretty well. Love the USB 2.0 powered aspect, meaning no wall-plugging. He's happy and so am I. :-) If you're looking for space-saving, affordable PC speakers, look no further.
Summary: For the price these speakers a very good. THe sound quality is good - not great - but way better than the price would indicate. No power plug & no subwoofer. Super simple install. Don't hesitate to buy.
