Three years of faithful service and only a hard wired cable failure was the fault.

Summary: After 3 years of constant use, the only thing that failed was the wire that went to the sound card on the pc. When I went to change it, I realised that the volume control is hard wired into the cable, meaning I was forced to buy a new set of speakers. But, and this is the big but, what a great set of speakers they are. Still using them now, but the channel keeps switching without me doing anything. Oh well, the speakers did not let me down, just the hard wiring.
Good sound, loud enough for kids whose parents don't mind too much.

Summary: Bought for my son who does like to crank up his choonz. I know they're not super loud (we're not that silly), but they're plenty loud enough for him so far, and pretty good bass, but not as good as that from my own Logitech speakers :) When he eventually (hopefully), moves out, I'll recommend something much louder to him if he wants it (just not here) ;)
Summary: The Bluetooth works a dream, not a single problem with that. The bass is the best bass I've ever heard on PC speakers. The clarity of the sound is exceptional and the volume can go high with no destortion. I tried connecting the PS4 to the speakers via Bluetooth but unfortunately Sony doesn't give support to that. These speakers are definitely on par with the more well known brands such as Sony philips and Logitech. Would recomend for the price as they are extrodonary!
Such a lovely sound, ruined by the poor build quality..

Summary: Like most of the negative reviews on here, mine seems to have gone the same way. Once opening the box I found a lovely bass unit, but the speakers feel cheap. I started using them, not bad. Watched a film and it all goes down hill... Huge annoying crackling when anyone speaks. Seems to work fine for the first 10 minutes of the film and just struggles to keep up. I have tried this on multiple computers and even my TV.. Same result.
The sound quality is very good and the bass is very powering when you turn ...

Summary: After having these speakers for a few weeks now I have found out that i did not waist my money. The sound quality is very good and the bass is very powering when you turn the dial to full. The product feels solid and well built and it looks very stylish. It goes great for a gaming set-up and it has completed my set-up.
Summary: These speakers function well, however, I have noticed a problem with the volume control i.e. the audio signal on the right speaker distorts when the when the 'desktop volume dial' isn't turned up fully. As a result I had the item sent back thinking I had received a faulty unit, only to find the issue was apparent on my replacement. If anyone knows why this happens feel free to comment.
