Summary: My impression from other reviewers is that they expect to much! These are small speakers in equally small enclosures. You can't expect high volume, you can't expect hi-fi sound. What you actually get is a pair of nice looking very compact speakers that produce a reasonable volume level in small to medium rooms. What do I use them for? They are absolutely brilliant as a replacement for the terrible speakers built into many smaller flat screen TVs.
Summary: Justifiable quality for the price. I give 4 stars because there is still that hissing noise coming out of it. Quite obvious when no music is being played but I pull the jack out if not in use. problem solved.
Summary: Well made and decent sound for a good price. These look very nice and certainly look more expensive then they actually were, easy to setup and a big improvement on my poor built in monitor speakers.
Summary: Wanted something powered by USB for my wifes laptop. As long as you do not overdo the volume they sound fine and are good to listen to music to (if not HiFi) and are almost perfect for the main purpose which is for talks using the laptop (via a projector) for sound (music clips) and video. Look good too.
Summary: Good product, fast delivery and very good communication with the seller.Unfortunaly i have to return because i get wrong color and definitly dont go with my decoration.The seller offer me full refund + post but said they are not sure about the color when send; so if you are not to fussy about color is a good buy.
Summary: Its a shame that these speakers don't sound good, as they look cute and they are quite well made too, and if you are looking for those qualities, then they might be for you. From a performance point of view however, they are really not very clever at all. I have tried two pairs of these now, and they both have the same problem, that the little drive units resonate, and therefore the sound quality is very below average, sounding messy, not even clean, and as they vibrate...
Summary: Unfortunately these speakers buzz and hiss even when there is no sound input. It is a low level, but it is there and it is annoying to me. It is such a shame because I find them quite beautiful and the sound output for me is fine. I have sent them back because I can't live with the noise. I have now researched the issue and find that other people have had the issue and it is event mentioned on a FAQ on the Philips site! Now I need to find a replacement.
