Summary: For the price, I am very impressed with these speakers. I purchased them on sale from Amazon for $7.99. I like that there are three different power options. It can be powered by 2 AA batteries, USB power, or directly into the 3.5mm audio jack of the computer.
Summary: I got these speakers for my Kindle HDX 7". Works perfectly but I have to plug them in the headphone jack. The USB connector is too big. Fantastic sound. Thank you Phillips and Amazon! Great speakers perfect price! Highly recommended!
Summary: I have 3 nearly identical iMacs in my house. On one I have the JBL duet speakers. At $20 I like them. On another I have the Logitech Z110. I got them on sale for $15, and are slightly quieter than the JBLs. But, still have good sound.
Fantastic Speakers That I Mistakenly Thought Weren't!

Summary: UPDATE: 1/21/2014 I actually wrote a poor review for these speakers last year (June 13th, 2013). I thought that speakers were defective because only ONE speaker emitted audio. I had tried all of my ports and made sure everything was plugged in correctly.
Summary: I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of these speakers. I just wanted an easy, portable volume boost for my macbook pro -- I got that plus really decent stereo sound and nice design. They work and sound great. I love the way the speakers "pop" into the base for storage. Super easy setup.
Summary: I waited about 2 months before opening the box and plugging these in. Finally did, and for the past 2-3 weeks, they were fine; sounded pretty good. So today...after only 2-3 weeks...they only have a super low volume!!!
Summary: These speakers have some great features - the center molding has fitments for both speaker pods so they can be stuck into one unit and the cables wound around the pod to be taken on the go. You can insert 3 AAAs to power the unit without USB.
Summary: Because a battery-powered portable amp is a convenient thing to have around in any situation. The speakers themselves are of average quality, nothing to write home about. The amp is extremely convenient, however.
Summary: Well when it comes to audio equipment of any kind, you get what you pay for. I needed a set of portable speakers for my work laptop that does not need an external power source and these fit the bill. The laptop powers. The sound quality is just ok because it has a 3 star price tag so like I said...
