Good enough

  • Summary: Let's bear in mind that these are very inexpensive. if you are looking for studio quality sound, look elsewhere. What do these speakers have to offer? They have pretty good sound quality. For the price, they are the best I have tried.

  • Summary: THIS ITEM IS NOT WORTH THE PRICE. I purchased some other speakers for 1.80(+ s&h) and they were SSSOOO much better than these. The volume is very low, even when the mp3 is maxed out. The sound is full of static. I was very much disappointed this purchase!!!

Can't understand why this got so many good reviews

  • Summary: I bought these for a friend who watches DVDs on her laptop, but these little speakers go into overload distortion at ridiculously low volume. I wasn't expecting great quality -- these are powered by AAA batteries, after all -- but this is ridiculous. Back they go.

  • Summary: These speakers are a little awkward for just throwing in your backpack do to the egg shape. But they are more powerful than most other portable speakers and they sound great. Plus it's fun to hand them over to a friend while they're in the egg shape and ask them to open them :) It can be a bit...

Sound and Quality

Andrew Bravo, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: These speakers are well for indoors, but outdoors requires more volume. Turning up the volume to max on these speakers decreases their quality. Thus they have the best quality at mid range volume, aka not a stereo replacement item. As far as ease of use and durability it is proficient.

LIARS

Zachary Miller, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: I thought these speakers looked nice and I wanted a small set of speakers that I could plug in at work. WRONG CHOICE!!!!! I processed the return 5 minutes after opening them. They would be great if you were at a picnic in the woods with no outlet around but for my purposes they are not.

Very good sound and value for the $.

CQ DX, Amazon

  • Summary: I picked these up at a local 'big box retailer' for about twenty dollars the pair. I needed much better sound for my notebook PC, and man do these deliver! Both spoken sound and music sound very full bodied and clear, and bass is there in good amounts as well.

Nice sound

  • Summary: These are a bit large and heavier than I would like but they pack well and I've taken them to Mexico, camping and they are now being used as better speakers for my laptop. Great product for the price, sound is decent. Don't expect mega base tho.

Can't handle high volume.

R. Stewart, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: These speakers are nice in that they are portable and easy to carry around, but the sound quality is terrible. You cant turn them up very high because of the distortion. They cannot handle any bass at all.
