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...
Summary: These speakers on definitely on the low end of sound quality. At a power rating of 1 watt per speaker, they sound much smaller than they look. The sound is a harsh mix of the mid-to-high-end range. There is no hint of bass. Battery life (four AA batteries) will give you between 15-30 hours of play.
Summary: When I was looking for a pair of powered portable speakers, I looked at this pair from Sony, as well as a couple selections at Radio Shack, all for the same price of $19.99. Compared to the Radio Shack speakers, the Sony has these pros and cons: Pros: - lightweight - better build quality (all are...
Summary: These speakers are ok, they do not go up that loud and they do not sound that great!!! I would not get them i would spent a little bit more money and get something better. But they are great if you are listening to them at a low volume.
Summary: If you set your expectations low enough, you just might be satisfied. Sony SRS-A27 speakers aren't worth $14.99 let alone $19.99. With only 1w per Speaker, don't expect to much. I recommend you shop around unless you want to waste $19.99. Overall I give them 1 Star each for participation.
Summary: These speakers have been trying my patience from the start. Direct mode (no power source) is useless unless the speakers are next to your head. The moment I added a power source (either with batteries or the Sony AC-E90HG adapter), the buzzing noise was present and would not stop.
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.
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..
