Summary: I purchased this device to provide decent sound to a small 19" flat screen JVC tv I have in the kitchen. I really liked my tv's HD picture, it also has a built in DVD player... but the sound was horrible! Really tinny and not much volume. It had an earphone jack, so I went to Amazon for a solution. I looked at several solutions, but this one had the best customer ratings.
Excerpt: I bought this speaker set for my wife for Christmas to use with her office computer. She has a private office and wanted to listen to music at times and also as more companies use videos, a better sound for listening to them. She is very pleased. A huge upgrade from the standard computer speakers. Can't speak to quality of sound at higher volume as she cannot use them in that manner.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I sometimes show videos in a variety of classroom settings. I need amplification in different sized classrooms, one of which will seat over 90 students. This set of microphones is small enough to travel on my cart, simple enough to set up quickly, and powerful enough to fill the room with adequate amplification
Summary: Purchased on sale at Staples.com, these speakers look fantastic. They are incredibly loud, I have to keep my system volume at 50% just so they won't crack my eardrums at their halfway position. The rear speakers really add a full, surrounding sound quality. The bass is impressive for these little speakers as well. I am 100% satisfied with these speakers.
Excerpt: For the price, these are amazing. They have a surprising amount of bass for such small speakers. Not to mention, they look slick. They're sure to match any desk setup. The two-way speakers are what you would expect - it shoots the music throughout the whole room. Great for rooms where you are wandering around a lot, such as a kitchen. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about these.
Summary: Great little speakers. Great sound considering the size. I do use mine predominantly for work. I have to listen to some audio files during some of my work and these have great clarity even when you turn them up. They look nice and aren't too big. I occasionally listen to music and they sound great then too.
Summary: i had a JBL 12w that expired. Bought this 10w thinking it would be similar or same quality. Sound is not even close to JBL. Returned. I have a 28w CREATIVE now, it's louder and holds the sound level, but the sound quality is still not as good as JBL.
