$30 speakers at best.

Aj Azadpour "AJ", Amazon

  • Summary: Okay, but nothing fantastic. Seems to specifically hit mid range only, no significant highs and (obviously) no bass. Almost sounds a little "boxy" if you're familiar with component speakers playing without any tweeters. These in no way will compete with desktop speakers, but that should be assumed. I believe that these are on par with the other 20-30 dollar laptop speakers you can find on Amazon, but these have a doubled price tag due to the brand.

Decent Sound At A Great Price - But There Are Clarity Issues

Peter Suslock, Amazon
7 August 2013
  • Summary: Logitech is one of those companies whose products have continues to impress me for decades. As the home computer became a mainstay Logitech has never varied from producing some best quality peripherals on the market. From their wireless mice, keyboards and sound systems I have always found the technology ( three years of life on the M705 mouse using two regular AA batteries) to be impressive as is the build quality.

Watch out for the speaker connector!

WaterLover "SAS", Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: Another reviewer noted that the end of the cable that connects to the speaker is perilously close to the clip for the speaker and that could cause problems. Well, it did for me pretty soon after I started using it. I accidentally grabbed the connector instead of the clip and the connector twisted enough to be useless. BAD DESIGN. This was a huge inconvenience as I did not have access to amazon or a store to replace the cable for about a month.

I *think* it's better than nothing.

Margaret C. Turnbull, Amazon

  • Summary: These speakers do work with the Mac, in one of the USB ports (but not the other, I'm not sure why). I had to change an audio setting in System Preferences for the speakers to work, otherwise the speaker will control the laptop volume while the actual sound still comes through the laptop. Anyway, with things correctly set up, the sound does appear to be a bit louder...but I still really wish there was MORE. I keep it at maximum volume all the time.

It's good but could be a little better

Sara Godjikian, Amazon
15 October 2012
  • Summary: There's something about it that really bothers me and it is the plug in the back of the speaker, it is right on top of the clip so when you pick it up to clip it let's say on the lid of your laptop, you think you're opening the clip but you're actually holding it from the plug and when you apply pleasure to it to open the clip (you're not opening the clip because you're holding it from the plug) then the plug starts to bend upwards and it's going to eventually give in...

Meh

  • Summary: It works slightly better than some of my notebook speakers. It does the job, so far had it for a few weeks and no problems. pros: 3.5mm input, volume control, power button on speaker, no power cord. cons: sound quality as expected for tiny speakers but nothing amazing, price.

External Speaker is OK

Mike1sc "Michael D. Smith", Amazon

  • Summary: The Logitech Portable Computer Speaker is just that....portable. I bought it for my wife and while she thinks it has enhanced her audio on her laptop tenfold, it may not be for someone that is constantly moving their laptop, because it has to be removed to close the laptop cover. But, it does provide a marked improvement from the stock audio from most laptops (this one is an hp).

"Pretty good, until it broke."

twenglish, CNET
18 June 2011
  • Pros: The sound quality was much better than I expected for the size and the price.
  • Cons: The speaker connects to your computer through a detachable USB cable. The end connected to the speakers sticks out about an inch from the back, and this is a major weak point. After a couple of months of removing the cable every time I packed it up (s

great perfomance but became defective

  • Summary: I really liked this unit...when it worked. Two defective units! I liked it so much that I am giving it one more try. Great sound and light. Logitechs technicians said units could have come from a "bad batch".

Not a bad little speaker

Marcie Higgins, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: I watch a lot of movies on my laptop and the sound was just not loud enough for me to put the laptop down and be 2 - 3 feet away from it. So, I bought the Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205 . The speaker was a bit smaller than I expected, but no big deal. The sound quality isn't bad, not the best, but okay. Unfortunately, the sound doesn't go much louder than the laptop speakers. It's handy to have and my kids borrow it for their laptops, too. Over all, it's not bad.
