A love affair that couldn't last...

Summary: Loved these speakers so much, I bought a second pair after the first set died (I should have known better). This 2nd set now has problems with the left speaker starting to go after roughly two years.
Summary: My use for speakers is video editing audio monitoring. These speakers simply had too much base. I tried adjusting settings on computer and physical location of speaker with no improvement. I believe there was some defect with the product because co-workers used them with success.
Summary: I purchased a pair of these speakers due to the positive reviews and it was a lightening deal. Seemed like a great deal but now they are going back to Amazon. Within a few days of use they started to "POP!" loudly when I turned them off. Happened once here and there, then more regularly.
Summary: For reference speakers, these sound very good for the price. You won't find any cheaper. But buyer beware. First off I had to send them back when I first bought them because of an issue with the headphone jack not silencing the speakers. Then they worked like a charm for about one year.
Summary: My wife and I both teach music for a living, and we use our computer speakers quite often. I bought these for my wife for her Suzuki violin studio, for use with SmartMusic. The first set didn't work; I don't remember the issue, but I believe they just didn't power on.
Summary: I was very happy with the size and quality of these speakers. I couldn't turn the sound all the way up or they got background static, but still ... I was very satisfied. Until the left speaker quit working and I discovered that the back was extremely hot.
Summary: Great sound while it lasted. But, From the outset one of the speakers was getting very hot to the touch. After finally being able to reach a live person, I was told that was normal. Not so! This is the cause of speaker failures - read other reviews about the same problem.
Summary: Update: 11/5/12 So these lasted 3 years for me before burning out. My left speaker is now very low in volume and my right speaker is louder. Seems many others have the same issue. I used them daily so perhaps the heat from the circuitry in the left speaker damages it over time.
Excerpt: Так как эта модель позиционируется как студийные мониторы очень бюджетного класса, у них меньше окраса звука, и отсутствует так всеми любимый бас. Поэтому когда слушаешь в них музыку - не получаешь должного впечатления от прослушивания.
