Portable Speakers Adequate For Voice - But At A Price

Lawrence H. Bulk "Lawrence H. Bulk", Amazon
13 June 2009
  • Summary: I have owned these Sony SRS-A27 Desktop Personal Speakers with 2-Way Power Supply for quite some time now. I use them with my Sony ICF-SW7600GR AM/FM Shortwave World Band Receiver with Single Side Band Reception and, for listening to shortwave broadcasts and local AM stations in conjunction with this particular radio, they are good, certainly much better than the Sony radio's mediocre internal speaker.

Poor Sound Quality

Shana, Amazon
25 August 2008
  • Summary: First of all, this speaker is for the office and not for music or entertainment. It has poor sound quality, and it sounds worse than the $10 dollar speakers I got from my brother. If you're going to be using these speakers for entertainment, do not buy these. If you are looking for entertainment speakers, buy the 2.1 or above. Don't buy one like these.

AC adapter not included???

Stan L. "nikmabc", Amazon
14 July 2008
  • Summary: ...and that's how they get you. The Sony brand adapter is listed at $39. You can buy an universal adapter for under $20(the sony is rated at 9v and 800mA), but there is a catch. The universal adapter's plug is too long! It won't make the proper contact with these speakers. But there is a way to make them work. Find the right adapter plug and put a little piece of tinfoil in the hole of the adapter---don't put it in the speaker hole.

Good product for what it is supposed to do

Oooh chimpanzee that, Amazon
26 December 2007
  • Summary: I had Sony speakers before, but they did not have the option of adding batteries or plugging it in...so the output was minimal. I decided that I needed speakers with more power. I looked everywhere and bought these...they seemed to be one of only a handful of speakers that would let me use either batteries or plug into an outlet (adapter not included). They were fantastic. I have read other reviews about the noise not being that good, but I have no complaints.

Sound from those speakers?

Oooh chimpanzee that, Amazon
27 June 2007
  • Summary: I had a pair of Sony speakers that had no power source (no batteries or AC adaptor)...and they worked fine for what they were. however, I wanted something that could be low with no batteries, but if I wanted to hear them outside with people talking etc, I wanted to be able to power them up and actually hear the music from my IPOD as opposed to it being barely audible.

Sony portables

Glen Irick, Amazon
2 April 2007
  • Summary: I use these at work and they are handy, and don't sound bad at all. They are almost indestructible as far as dropping them, I have many times, and they keep working. Amazing!

Not good for music, but good enough for voice audio

Alberto Cajigas Jr. "Al", Amazon
23 July 2006
  • Summary: Initially I bought these speakers because they looked really nice, were made by Sony and were cheap. I guess none of that made any sense when I initally used them for music. These speakers are just bad for music. However, I got a job as a teacher a few years back and I used these speakers for audio books and they worked great.

So much better than the other reviews say

Jill H. Baskin "musicman", Amazon
8 May 2006
  • Summary: Before buying these speakers, I purchased the Sony passive speakers for $6.00. Those were absolutely terrible. After the wire snapped, I decided to pay a little more for these...best decision I've made in a while. They are much louder than you would believe, and have surprisingly good quality. However, I bought these for a very unique reason. I put these speakers in my backpack to play during and after school, and things like that, and these are perfect for that.

You get what you pay for...maybe less

peryus88, PriceGrabber
16 March 2006
  • Summary: The speakers look nice, and their also useful if you plan on using them for travel (if this is your last resort). I would not recommend using it for your desktop because sound quality isn't that great. The sounds that it produces are very low, especially when increasing the volume; also...also very tinny; no depth.
  • Pros: compact; doesn't take up a lot of space.
  • Cons: sounds ver tinny
