Summary: These speakers sound like plastic, and there is distortion when you turn the volume up. I went to a local store, and First I tried the Sony SRSD4 model (2.1 system) and they sound good, then I tried these ones, and the sales agent and me laugh because they sound like an alarm clock speaker :D.
Summary: These worked well for a very short time then quit working at all. I checked connections carefully and determined it was the speakers' fault. I then purchased a stereo speaker bar that clips on top of the laptop when it's open (recommended), that works and is handier and at ear level.
Summary: I needed new desktop speakers for work and I love my new little speakers, they are loud enough to enjoy a video or movie on my computer but small enough that they don't take up much room on top of my desk. I mainly use them with headphones for work and I love that when I need to turn up the volume to hear I don't get any feedback and the sound does not become distorted they stay clear and sold. I would definitely recommend these speakers.
Summary: These speakers sound great for the price. They're an unobtrusive size, yet are capable of getting sufficiently loud. Even at their loudest, they do not distort the sound at all. I use them in the bathroom to listen to music when I shower, and they are plenty loud. For my computer, I have some logitech speakers which have a sub-woofer, but for my bathroom, these speakers are perfect. The only thing I could complain about is their shape.
Summary: I've read some reviews complaining about how these speakers weren't very loud. Those people must be trying to use them for a block party or they don't know how to adjust the volume on their computers! These speakers are plenty loud and emit great sound quality despite being surprisingly light weight. The only downside with these speakers is that the aux cable is not very long and the wires connect directly into the back of the speaker.
Summary: I just wanted inexpensive speakers for my pc, so I could hear the sound while editing video. I have always had cheaper speakers as they are adequate for me, not being an audiophile. These were the worst sounding speakers I have ever heard, including internal tv speakers. It would have been painful to use these, the sound quality is so bad. And they start over- modulating just past the halfway point on the volume controller.
