The sound is really good.
Udrag
If I wanted to keep plugging in and unplugging my audio cables, I'd have spent more money on a more expensive set, maybe one that didn't have an AUX port.
Heisenberg's Uncertainty
They pump MORE than enough sound to fill a room with NO distortion while providing great sound quality.

For a very inexpensive price, these speakers perform as well as can be expected. They're not high-end, and they don't sound like it. But they're not bad, either. The bass speaker is larger than I expected it to be, about an 8" cube, so it took up a bit more space than I would have liked. Probably had I read the specs a little better I would have known that. The two smaller speakers are very light weight and tend to move around when the cord gets bumped or pulled. Controls are convenient except the power switch, which is on the back of the bass box.

it's not the best speaker you can get, but it's definitely the best you can get for under 20$
has a headphone jack and an aux input on the speaker which is convenient, a volume, bass and treble jogs in front and also has a small sub-woofer unit for bass
don't expect anything great in terms of sound, but it is reliable and looks good!
also, note that this requires electricity - not usb powered!

I got these speakers for around 8 dollars and they have been amazing. The sound is really good. It isn't the best like dolby speakers but for 8 dollar who cares. It is nice since you can directly hook up your iPOD to the speaker thru aux port. There is also a speaker port for anytime you just want to use your headphones. Overall, I recommend them for anyone looking for good cheap speakers

These were about 30$. My son's using them on his computer in his room. They're more than adequate. The sound is pretty impressive. Bass is pretty clean. The ipod "docking station" is pretty useless. Just a piece of plastic you can rest the ipon on. Would have been better to have included a wire, but it's convenient to have the socket to plug into.

Verified Purchase
If you are simply looking to replace or add computer speakers, look no further. You will not find a better pair of speakers for the price -- which, at $9 and change, is an absolute steal. (Heck, it costs Amazon just as much to ship them!)

If computer speakers are your only means of listening to music, you might want to consider something more high-end. But if computer speakers are your only means of listening to music, you are probably not a high-end audiophile. And these speakers will do, in spades.

I have bought two, count 'em, two pairs of these. The first pair I bought for my office computer. I only bought them because they were the cheapest speakers I could find. I was quite impressed given the money. I keep the volume fairly low in my office, which would normally lead to losing the low end, but with the subwoofer I get a little oomph and punch even at low volume.

The speakers I'd been using on my home computer -- a pair of four-year-old Gateways -- suddenly seemed a bit weak by comparison, although they had always seemed more or less fine for what they are (i.e., computer speakers!). I've now replaced those Gateways (and given them and the computer to which they were connected to the kids) with these Altecs. There is quite a difference.

First, the Gateways -- which were pretty state of the art for computer speakers in their day four years ago -- only put out 3 watts per channel. The Altecs put out 4 watts per channel and 7 watts in the subwoofer. Second, the frequency response of the Gateways is 90Hz - 20KHz. Thanks to the subwoofer, the frequency response of the Altecs is 30Hz - 20KHz. That difference between a 30KHz low end and a 90KHz low end means A LOT.

In short, you can't go wrong with these speakers unless you are looking for a high-end, higher-powered set-up as your primary speakers.

I bought these speakers about three months ago specifically for the AUX port they offered. I planned to use them with my Xbox 360 along with an HD monitor that I bought. The setup works great. I also have a laptop that's built in speakers aren't that great (as expected), but they are Altec's as well. So I use the speakers to play music when I'm not using them to play Xbox.

If you're buying these for a similar reason know that you can't have both plugged in and on at the same time. I had hoped to just leave them plugged in, so I wouldn't have to continuously plug and unplug the audio cables, they even advertised it as if you could leave them both plugged in. But if you do plug them both in at the same time, no sound comes out, just a little static. It makes sense to me why one set of speakers can't accept from two sources at the same time, but that's how it was advertised. If I wanted to keep plugging in and unplugging my audio cables, I'd have spent more money on a more expensive set, maybe one that didn't have an AUX port.

Besides this small setback they speakers have wonderful sound. Decent bass, and for a small and cheap package can go pretty loud without sacrificing quality. My room mate has the same set and loves them. But there is a reason I gave them only 2 stars. For a few weeks now the right speaker has been cutting out at random. Though they fix themselves if I unplug and replug in the audio cable into my laptop. This is, however, only a temporary solution, since they'll cut out again anywhere from seconds to hours later.

They were good speakers, but not recommended due to bad hardware.
