The bass sounds awesome, and even at high volumes I have no issues with sound reproduction.

Audyssey calls this an "auto sleep" feature, but come on... if the speakers shut down and you have to manually turn them on again that's not "sleep"... that's OFF.

They're tuned for music, so not ideal for watching movies and TV, but that's not what they're intended for and they still do an admirable job.

I initially got the Audyssey Lower East Side Media Speakers for my wife's MacBook, as she likes listening to music and also watches a lot of movies using it.

The sound quite frankly blew us both away. I ended up "borrowing" them frequently for my home office, where I also like to jam from my own MacBook Pro while working. I did it so often that she ended up ordering ME a pair, too. I was very glad she did!

The speakers are perfect for for small spaces - and in such settings deliver surprisingly rich, clear sound -- the bass in particular is amazing.

Two thumbs (make that four) WAY up for Audyssey's Lower East Side Media Speakers!

UPDATE, July 20, 2012: These speakers ROCK on my Kindle Fire. I've been watching HBO GO movies and shows with the speakers and it is amazing. I've got the speakers setup in my home gym. My elliptical machine has a little shelf designed for holding books, iPods, tablets and I put the Kindle Fire there when working out. Since connecting it to my Audyssey speakers I've been watching tons more video on it. And needless to say when playing music from my Kindle or iPhone, I also use the speakers -- really pleased with these speakers.

These speakers sound amazing! Audiophiles will be satisfied with Audyssey's expertise in audio. They are extremely clear, especially through the optical audio port. Don't expect glass breaking bass, however it is definitely present and much more tight than other systems. The passive bass radiators do this well as opposed to a dedicated sub. However, they are expensive and lack a few features I would like to see (ex. wake up from standby). This is the only reason these did not get full stars.

First the good news: These speakers have amazing sound for such small units, the best I've heard. Unlike most speakers of this size the Audyssey's actually do sound like speakers about twice their size. They have expansive low to mid-range, so much so that I wish they had a bass and treble adjustment on the speakers. A quick fix in iTunes though, so no worries. Bass is enough to vibrate my desk, a first for computer speakers in my experience, but the highs are still plenty distinct and discernable. At high volume there's a little distortion, but nowhere near as much as I'd expect from speakers this size. These won't replace an actual stereo system, but in a smallish room or for a quick blast they're more than adequate.

Esthetically speaking they're handsome if a bit bland. Ultimately they look like what they are: A pair of speakers with a wire stand. I waffle on whether I prefer my speakers to make a design statement or just "be there" and not attract attention. These definitely fall on the "just be there" side of things. The wire stand they're on almost seems like an afterthought and detracts a bit from the overall ability of the speakers to blend into the background but doesn't add enough oomph to make them seem like their own design element. Sort of a worst of both worlds option, but again it's not a serious problem.

Now the bad news: Functionally these speakers leave a lot to be desired with one glaring flaw that would prevent me from buying these for anything over $100. On the "needs to be improved" end of things, dedicated bass and treble knobs would be nice since these speakers give enough of both that you want to adjust them. The volume/on/off knob on the front of the right speaker is pretty flimsy and cheap feeling for speakers in this price range IMO.

The sound is good. The speaker wire that connects both speaks could be longer. But this HAS A MAJOR FLAW

If there is no sound for 30 minutes, then the speakers turn themselves off. They technically go into stand-by mode, but if they require you to hit a button to turn them back on, its not really a standby mode--its an OFF mode. There is also no way to turn this off. When working at the computer and then you realize you missed a chat request or alarm because the speaker auto turned off, its REALLY annoying.

I would not buy if this is a concern. ITs much more annoying in reality than in thought--and the only solution is to always play something through the speakers/computer to keep it from standby mode.

I think after using these speakers for a while, I just need to get another pair so I don't have to constantly hit the button to turn them back on ...

Don't just think of these as speakers for your computer. They provide enough volume to use in a small living room. Bass sounds like bass from much larger enclosures. Only slight negative is that volume control is a manual knob on one of the speakers. But once you set it, you won't have to adjust it that often anyway.

Great sound, great looking, but there is an auto-sleep "feature" to save power that requires a physical button push to wake up. Not a deal-killer, but not good product design and pretty annoying at this price point. Buyer beware...

These speakers replaced M-Audio's AV-30 speakers (the powered speaker died). The replacement Audyssey Lower East Side Media speakers blows the doors off of the M-Audio.

The highs are crisper and there is far more bass that the AV-30's, even when the bass boost switch was "on". Amazing since the Audyssey's are half the size of the AV-30s.

The Audyssey's, good as they are, are not audiophile speakers. Mids are ok. Bass is a little boomie, but well enough defined that you can listen to blues or club and still enjoy it. These are really good computer desktop speakers.

PS
After initialing posting the review, and after listening a little longer, I had to come back and edit this review. The Audyssey's deserve a 5 star rating.
