Great for classroom

  • Summary: My speakers for my SmartBoard are broken, and these speakers saved me! Clear, beautiful sound! Even the music teacher uses them during her classes!

don't bother

R. Jantz, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: There are better options for $20. These sound on par w/ $5 speakers. There's no weight to them and the left speaker slides around the desk just from the pull of the weight of the thin wire coming out the back. Sound quality might be acceptable if you're only listening to an AM radio station, low quality youtube videos, or a book on tape, but these cannot reproduce music with any clarity at all. The only reason I gave them two stars is because they look nice.

Nice little speakers

Jeffery Dane Wilkerson, Amazon
27 November 2009
  • Summary: I never got to use the speakers to be truthful. There is something wrong with the sound card, I believe on my system. All I can say is they are nice looking small speakers, and the shipping was timely. They came packaged well also.

Good enough!!!

R. Garcia, Amazon

  • Summary: I was looking for a cheap pair of speakers with decent sound, and I struck gold with these puppies. Actually, have great sound and pack a powerful punch into two small desktop speakers. Love it and wouldn't buy anything else now looking back. Not going to rock the house with base is the only reason why they don't get a 5 star rating, but I didn't expect them to for the price. And Amazon has the cheapest price I found.

Sony Speakers

  • Summary: These are great speakers for the price. I found that they work great with my computer and my iPod, but the bass could be much better when playing music.

it's a Sony

Doug Myers "high performance", Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: I had the advantage of first purchasing another similarly priced off-brand product (just a few dollars cheaper) that was total junk and which I returned to store. These Sony speakers are vast upgrade: solid, no rattles, very good sound for their size (no subwoofer, but I knew that) and purpose. I will be ordering another set for another location.

Good for what they are

Oooh chimpanzee that, Amazon
30 December 2008
  • Summary: I purchased these as a present for a friend...and they did not do what I had hoped they would. I was anticipating that there would be multiple uses for them, but there are not. The one and only way they work is to plug them in with the included power cord. You cannot run them with no power, and not on batteries. They sound decent enough, but I wanted them to be more portable than they are.

Cheap. Small. Does the trick for the price.

martyg "martyg", Amazon

  • Summary: No bass. Certainly not designed to be audiophile speakers. Look OK but feel awful; made of lightweight, flimsy plastic. Basic cheap computer speakers, not suitable for prolonged music listening, but what do you expect for the price?

Fair set of pc desktop speakers, nothing remarkable

xvrclaw, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: I purchased a set of Sony srs a201 pc speakers from an ebay shop for £18.99. I bought them because I was frustrated with the extremely low output and low quality of the built in speakers in my Samsung laptop. They are smart looking and have extremely small footprint so they don`t take up loads of room on your desk. They are simplicity itself to use, just plug them into the headphone jack of your laptop and off you go.
