Summary: I bought these YEARS ago and they are still working great! I use them for an mp3 player and mostly for a portable dvd player and they are perfect. They have even been dropped a few times (by accident of course) and I was so worried that they would be done for, but they survived!
Summary: Like other reviewers have said, these are too weak. Pros: 1. Very, very cute! 2. Light weight 3. Don't need external power 4. Very portable Cons: 1. Too weak 2. Larger than what I thought they would be 3. Sound is tingy 4.
Summary: Sound quality is great, although I noticed a slight crackle when I move the wire too much near where it's plugged into my mp3. My only real complaint is that they slide quite easily on smooth surfaces because of the rounded feet, so putting them on the shelf above my desk was nearly disastrous.
Summary: Wanted to use these to watch TV shows on my laptop. Plugged in to watch "Zen" on PBS. Volume too low. The show was not audible. I borrowed from my kid a pair of "iLuv" passive speakers with audio and USB cable (Sonys only have audio cable) to watch the show and it was way loud.
Summary: I use these speakers for a small music system in our house. I was surprised at how well these speakers worked. The volume is quite loud and the sound is clear - you can hear music clearly over the whole downstairs of the house (about a 30 foot by 40 foot area).
Summary: These speakers are alright. Great volume for passive speakers. Good bass But I do want to caution about a few points. First, because of it's oddly-shaped design, it can sometimes be a little bit awkward to carry them around. They're connected by a split main wire which adds to this awkwardness.
Summary: We purchased these speakers for use in the car with factory installed DVD player (18 month old will not wear the headphones). These speakers are great for all of her Disney movies. They are loud enough for her to hear, while not drowning out radio and conversation in the front of the vehicle.
What would really be kewl is if you could listen to this review on the Speakers...

Summary: Ok.. if I'm honest, its not like having the London Symphony Orchestra right there in your living room - but that's not the idea here, I'm sure. These speakers make for an inexpensive, easy-to-use, and even reasonably attractive "sound system" (for lack of a better term).
