Stereo Compact Speaker are Better than Computer Speakers.
7 April 2014
Summary: I was hoping to find a LOUDER stereo speaker system for my laptop than what I all ready have. These played fine but were not as loud as what I all ready have for external speakers and they do not play as well on bass. There is nothing wrong with them, just not as loud or do they play as low as what I have. Price wise, these are a good value.
Decent speakers for the size, but not worth the price

Summary: These speakers worked just fine for me. They don't pump high quality music as loud as the page would have you believe, but for a bedroom they work just fine. They are portable and easy to move around, and the rechargeable feature is nice. However, they aren't bluetooth enabled which I would have expected. Also, they have to be plugged into each other, so they can only be so far apart from each other.
Summary: These speakers do not 'sound great', they sound OK, maybe a bit harsh when compared to any reasonably large set of stereo speakers or even the speakers embedded in my Apple Thunderbolt display. But, they are small, collapsible to smaller, and self-powered. So, if one needed some phone speakers for a picnic or some such wall socket deficient event, well, you could do worse.
Summary: The LEDS are notably bright, yes, though you can put a small piece of electrical tape or similar over them when you leave these to charge overnight, or just put something in the way for the time being. Also, yes, as another reviewer has mentioned, there is poor shielding on the charging/audio, causing the speakers to produce an intermittent electric buzzing when using them during charging; that said, I am able to look past this because I won't use the speakers when...
Summary: I purchased these for the office, and I'm generally pretty impressed. For the size, the sound and quality is pretty decent! It will definitely put out more volume than you'll need in an office environment, and the portability is wonderful. That sound, they hiss and sound like crap when charging. Once charged, it's a matter of having the cheap cable set up just right so the sound isn't disturbed. Move the cable, and the hissing is back.
Don't go out of their niche and they're quite good. Wires, not so much.

Summary: If you listen to piano, female vocals, classical and any music where bass isn't needed to make the music come alive these are quite good. Careful speaker placement can result in that "in your head between your ears" stereo sound much like good headphones. Eva Cassidy's rendition of "Fields of Gold" or a piano solo station on Pandora will sound wonderful on these. Adeles "Rolling in the Deep" or Bon Jovi's "It's my life" are going to fail.
Summary: First, the pros: * Compact and portable * Good sound quality for size * Works with headphone jack in your MP3 player, so you can use it with almost anything that has a headphone jack (I say "almost" because I'm not going to try every single MP3 player I own to find out if this is true). * Chargeable battery (no need to buy batteries!
