Summary: I was hoping for speakers like Logitech z205 or z305. I needed speakers that are both powered by usb as well as the sound input through usb. My friend's computer sound card failed and still wanted to listen to music on her computer.
Summary: The speakers are pretty, no doubt about it. Nice size. Good price. The reason why I give it 4 stars is because: (1) wires get in the way. One speaker has all the wires coming out of it, so if you were to wrap them around the back, there really isn't any room. Too many wires!!!
Summary: While you can't expect much from a sub-$20 set of mini-speakers, these speakers become heavily distorted after cranking it past mid volume while using integrated laptop sound. There is virtually no bass response to speak of and many of the details get lost due to this.
