Summary: While not quite an audiophileâ€™s dream, these stylish little speakers do an excellent job. If youâ€™re moving on up from the integrated speakers in your laptop, youâ€™ll be more than satisfied with the SoundScience QSBs. On the other hand, if you love your bass-heavy tunes or require absolute precision in your sound reproduction, perhaps they arenâ€™t for you.
Excerpt: There’s a boom in speakers designed to improve on the units in most laptops, but while the neatest answer is to connect them via USB, there is one problem: power. The solution adopted by SoundScience for the QSB desktop speakers is the DyadUSB package from NXT (or HiWave as the company has just rebranded itself). It combines efficient flat balanced-mode-radiator drivers with an amp able to deliver up to 15W on USB power.
Pros: Excellent sound for their size, neat design, portable, inexpensive
