Summary: I am a professional composer and music studio owner. I bought these speakers merely to see how my mixes sounded on a basic consumer audio medium. Make no mistake, these speakers do not come anywhere near aural reproduction on near field monitors or high-end ported cabinet units, but, as long as you don't expect to crank them way up (they understandably distort) and are satisfied with lossy audio mediums like MP3, their definition, imaging and frequency fidelity was...
Summary: Yes these speakers are very loud for their size but things go downhill from there. I bought these speakers to replace a small Logitech Z205 Portable Computer Speaker that I donated to my wife to take with her when she travels. Trust me she got the better deal. The volume on the Pioneer speakers is nearly impossible to set. It is either too loud or too soft. There is little in between.
Summary: My built-in laptop speakers are pretty busted, so I was pleasantly surprised with the sound quality of these speakers. I'm one happy camper who can watch her netflix movies without having to turn the volume all the way up to hear dialogue!
Summary: These are great speakers for the price... plenty of clarity for music... plenty of volume, easy install. I recommend!! If you are looking for high-end stereo sound for your tunes, you will have to spend the bucks but these, for me, are perfect.
Summary: My PC didn't come with speakers, and my 17 year old (!) powered speakers stopped working. I researched speakers for the better part of three hours, and think I came to the right decision with these Pioneers, but there are some "quirks." These are two powerful little speakers, maybe a little too powerful.
Summary: great speakers! they get nice and loud, good bass. you just might need to manually assign them if you have Mac OS. I have used them on my pc and they are instantly recognized and work great. but when I plugged them into my Mac the computer did not instantly recognized the USB speakers, so I had to manually assign them as the active speakers through the options for speakers. other than that great computer speakers for your money!
Summary: I love these little speakers. LOL. They sound really good and even have their own volume adjustment. I live in an apartment and there's no way I can use my big floor speakers without getting a noise complaint. These little speakers I have never even turned up all the way because they are so loud already and have a good amount of bass. I connect them to my computer via usb attached to them and play my Pandora stations. Great buy!
Summary: Great little speakers with minimal cords to hook up to laptop or desktop. you only need usb. no need to plug in power cord. i cranked them full blast on an old dell desktop and heard no distortion. well pleased.
