yes they are loud but i needed loud wish they had more bass
7 May 2014
Summary: but hey for the price a very good deal. i would give them 5 stars if the bass were better. I like the loudness because i need to be away from the computer doing things while i listen.And you CAN make them quiet unlike what others have said.
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: No complaints at all. Plug and play! My computer recognized the speakers immediately and I was jamming. I am not a music perfectionist and I am sure you can pay more to get very technical speakers. These serve well and sound good enough to my ear for everyday use. I have a stereo for the more technically perfect sound reproduction.
Summary: I needed speakers so I can listen to webinars and videos on my computer. These are great for that purpose. They produce loud, clean sound. I would buy them again or recommend them to a friend.
Summary: Replaced a set of Logi-tech speakers. these Pioneer speakers have much stronger, clearer and smoother sound by far. For the money you cannot beat these little babies - very powerful for their size.
Summary: Pros - the product is easy to install - simply plug it in the usb and the computer does the rest. There is no power cord and the cord length is good enough to stretch across a desktop. They have a nice design, pretty attractive look on the desktop, despite what i initially thought when looking at the picture. The sound is WELL balanced, great mids and bass, with enough heights to produce a rich sound.
Summary: at least at the default price of nearly $40 or so. If you can get them for nearly 50% off like I did then they're a fantastic deal, pretty much a must buy at that price. Still worth getting for the default price though. The great thing about them is that they give you pretty high volume with low(er) distortion and actual bass* than _any_ other portable speakers out there right now that are powered via a single USB connector.
Amazing sound from these speakers! Definitely worth investing!

Summary: Amazing speakers! They produce such great sound for such a small speaker, it really amplifies the room! I like the fact of the matter that they are USB powered from your computer so they don't require a power outlet. I'm not sure if it's my computer or the software you install that comes with the speakers..but the volume button does seem to be 'glitchy' from time to time. Otherwise great quality sounding speaker!
Summary: Great set of usb speakers for 20 some bucks. After reading the reviews I was pretty much sold. 4.9/5.0 rating? count me in! Sound is good to very good. Small footprint and USB powered is nice addition. A few minor drawbacks... One thing about the volume. These speakers do get loud, but not SUPER loud like half the reviews say.
