Summary: These are versatile, strong sounding speakers that come with predictable Sony quality. When not in use they "nest" together and the cord wraps around for easy storage. The speakers run off an AC cord or three AAA batteries which means they can be taken anywhere. For better laptop sound, a way to play your MP3 player, iPod or phone with better sound quality, these are a great value.
Summary: Sorry I wasted my money. I bought because you would think Sony would put out a good product but after only a few uses it's full of static and they cut in and out. Checked connections and they are secure and tight. Just not a good product.
Summary: Ridiculous that a European wall plug would be included instead of a North American one when ordering in the US. All my daughter wanted for Christmas was to be able to listen to her MP3 player on her own speakers and the size and price of these seemed perfect. She was SO disappointed that she couldn't use them when she opened the package Christmas day. Full refund given, but in my opinion for a mistake that should NOT have occured in the first place.
Summary: This was the first time in 40 years that I bought something with the Sony name on it that I did not like--I returned it immediately.The sound was tinny and not as good as the $10 product I was trying to replace--soory Sony--I love your stuff this time you dropped the ball.
Summary: This is the first time I have been completely disappointed with Amazon. In spite of negative reviews mentioning the fact that the European adapter, rather than the US model, came in the package. I wrongly assumed that Amazon had worked this out. But apparently they are continuing to sell a product that cannot be used as intended in the US- although the product description indicates otherwise. BUT, Amazon issues aside, we loved the speakers- five stars.
