Summary: While the speakers don't have a great sound quality they have an acceptable sound quality and are very portable. I use them with my Sony Walkman as I travel in my car that has no CD player. I am very pleased to be able to listen to the music without headphones. It isn't safe to wear headphones while traveling. They are just very handy when you want to hear your music or share it and it isn't feasible to use stereo equipment or to have the equipment near you as you work.
