Audio Alignment Technology for Superb Accuracy and Alignment
The BXR1320 relies on Altec Lansing's proprietary Audio Alignment technology to make sure all of the speakers' components work together to deliver your music the way it is meant to be heard. Audio Alignment technology offers the perfect balance of the three elements of the speaker system -- the drivers, enclosure, and electronics -- to ensure a natural, uncolored, and rich sound from your speaker system. The system's two-inch, full-range drivers and separate satellite speakers provide stereo imaging for more realistic sound when you're gaming or watching movies and videos.

Designed to Fit Any Computer System
The speakers' elegant black enclosures and cloth grills complement your computer and peripherals. The speakers' small size--6.3 by 2.6 by 3.3 inches (H x W x D)--saves valuable room on your desk and makes it easy to carry them along with your laptop.

The BXR1320 components are also shielded, so you can place them close to your monitor or phone without interference. Conveniently placed power and volume buttons put sound control within easy reach.

About Audio Alignment
Whether it's the tiniest of ear buds or the most imposing of subwoofers, Altec Lansing has refined every detail of its speakers to provide you with the most accurate sound reproduction and quality. Audio Alignment ensures that your components work together to deliver your music the way it is meant to be heard, offering the perfect balance of your speaker system's drivers, enclosure, and electronics. For 70 years Altec Lansing has been refining this process, bringing your speakers to life with advanced technologies that make them sing.

The BXR1320 speaker system is covered by a one-year limited warranty.

I wanted USB speakers to avoid the vampire power when not in use. I originally bought HP 2.0 compact speakers which were terrible. No power or volume buttons. So you can only adjust volume using the mouse and the speakers were always on, terrible sound quality, and constant hissing sound.

I bought these instead and the quality is great, good enough for me at least. Dedicated power button and volume button. So you can turn it off when not in use and not draw any power.

PROS
- Great sound and relatively small size
- USB doesn't draw vampire power
- USB powered doesn't occupy an outlet
- Power button to turn off when not in use
- Volume button

CONS
- No port for headphones
- Separate power and volume buttons. So if you leave the volume on high and turn it off, you may get blasted with sound when you turn the power back on. So turn the volume down before turning off.

The USB is only used to power the speakers, it uses a standard stereo plug for the actual audio. This isn't necessarily bad, just that I originally thought it would use the USB plug for both power and the audio signal. I have other headphones which can use either USB or a stereo plug to get the audio signal. These speakers use both the USB for power and the standard stereo plug for the audio.

In other respects these speakers have performed well in the day since I received them.

These speakers sound great and are well worth the inexpensive price. I previously had another well-known brand of laptop speakers that cost a lot more, did not perform nearly as well, required electrical outlet plug in and quickly died (just as other reviewers had warned they would!). I have been very pleasantly surprised by these speakers and with this brand in general. These little laptop speakers provide a much fuller, richer sound than most laptop speakers, are easy to use and very portable. Just plug into a USB port and the computer audio jack. The cords on the speakers are also long enough to place the speakers on the edge of a large desk to direct sound placement as you'd like. I have now purchased several Altec Lansing speaker systems (for iPod, iTouch, etc.) and they all sound amazing for the small size and reasonable prices. Highly recommend this brand.

Followed the reviews on Amazon of the various speakers, these seem to have the most positive. Consumers were right, they are fantastic speakers at a great price. The reviews are one of many reasons I shop constantly at Amazon....

This is something like the third set of USB speakers I've bought now. Previous ones failed, either crapped out or a loose wire or just a tinny sound.

These speakers are smaller than the others but more powerful than any of them.
They just have an on/off switch and volume. Plug in the speaker and the usb - Done.

An excellent value for your money. Recommended.

Very pleased with the sound, out of the small package. Would recommend these for the office desk speaker solutions. Small footprint, minimal wires. Just what I was seeking.

these are a 100 times better then the built in speakers in my ACER laptop. the sound is good not the best but I have been spoiled by my Logitech X-540 5.1 surround sound 140 watt system I have on my desk top. I like to play my music loud with plenty of bass these speakers can not handle that. but they sound ok at lower volume and they do make a good laptop speaker they just don't give the sound I'm used to with a bigger sound system. would I buy these again no don't get me wrong these speakers are good for laptops and sound good there is nothing wrong with them they are worth the money.

I expected it to be a little louder doh. but I really can't complain for the price and I must say that the product is rather durable and the sound quality is decent.
