Summary: Bit of a buzzing sound when on standby. You have to turn it off when not in use if you're sensitive about buzzing sound. Not sure why these speaker systems insist on putting a bright led light to show that it's "on". Had to tape over with electrical tape because it was SOOO bright at night.
Summary: The speakers are loud, but not very crisp. The distortion is unbelievably bad. I will say for the size and price the volume is pretty impressive. I can't believe Sony would release speakers that become so easily distorted. Bass is also impressive. I wouldn't pay more than $25.
Summary: The sound is fine but the cord is not even long enough to reach from the CPU to the top of the desk. It barely makes it with the CPU almost under the place where speakers are kept. Every time I pull the CPU forward, the speakers fall behind the desk.
