One of my biggest peeves about slim and travel-friendly laptops today is that the majority of them come with severely underpowered speakers. It's often impossible to share content with someone else unless you can share a pair of ear buds/headphones because you simply cannot hear if there is noise in the area.

The Jlab B-Flex X-Bass (say that 5 times fast) is the solution to that problem.

Quick Review:

Pros:
-Way better sound quality than stock speakers
-Tons more volume
-Highly portable
-Super easy (no install)

Cons:
-Shiny black + Travel = Scuff City
-Flexible "stem" doesn't like to twist, only bend.
-Costly (you can get a pretty substantial set of computer speakers for $70, or a second pair of ear buds with a splitter, etc.)

Similarly light and portable to a laptop, the X-Bass can be easily stowed in a pocket, backpack, bag, etc. and brought out if you find yourself in need of better or louder sound (or both).

It's a plug-and-play device, so seconds after it's plugged in, it's generating sound... and decently loudly too!

It has two driven speakers, and 1 "passive" sub woofer. Now, don't be fooled, this isn't a powered sub... you won't be shaking anything with it. It simply allows the 2 driven speakers to deliver a deeper and more recognizable bass. It's effective in what it does, but it might be a little deceptive visually.

The sound itself is substantially better than most laptops (macbook users will see a dramatic difference) and it is capable of easily filling a room with sound. You have to be a little careful with your levels, or you can make it clip, which ruins the sound until you turn down your signal levels.

If you constantly need more volume and better sound from your laptop, you definitely want to look into these.

After dealing with laptop speakers for over a year (laptop is a ASUS G60JX), I finally decided to take the plunge and buy a separate speaker for it. After going over Amazon's plus a few other online retailers selections, I selected the JLab X-Bass to purchase and I'm glad I did. The difference between this and the stock laptop's speakers is night and day.

Pros:
+ Louder sound (running the speaker at 15-20% computer speaker level was the equivalent of the laptop's speakers at 100% computer speaker level). I can actually view the Amazon Prime videos without needing headphones like before.
+ Much more defined highs and lows than the stock speakers, though you shouldn't expect audiophile quality out of these
+ one of the more portable speakers out there, easily fits in my laptop bag
+ plug and play, no need for drivers or other setup

Cons:
- Like one of the previous reviewers noted, it's sleek and black: magnet for smudges and scratches. I bought it new from amazon and it arrived with two noticeable light scratches on the back. It's already picked up a third scratch within a day of using it.

All in all though, I would definitely make this purchase again.

I love this speaker. It's small enough to shove into my laptop bag but delivers a booming voice to the puny one my computer has. For the price, you can't go wrong. I bought one for my daughter and it's almost a permanent fixture to her laptop! There is one downside, my daughter sings way too much now. Help!

Just got this today and it. Is. AWESOME! It's truly unbelievable how much power this baby packs -- and it's considerably smaller than I imagined. Incredibly easy to use and efficient.

My only (minor) "complaints" would be:

1. While of course totally portable, it's a bit heavier than it looks. Luckily, it comes with a little stand to help support it sticking out of your laptop -- definitely use it! Without it, the speaker at least appears to put a disconcerting amount of pressure on the inside of the USB port and it's own plug. Could this lead to warping of one or the other at some point? I dunno. But I'd rather not risk finding out.

2. At least on my laptop, the computer's hardware volume controls (either dial or hot keys) -- routed through a 3rd party audio controller that came pre-installed -- didn't do anything to affect the volume of the B-Flex. It CAN, however, be adjusted through Windows' own volume control. I freaked out a bit before figuring it out. So just be aware.

3. In the course of trying to figure out how the hell to adjust the volume, I discovered there is actually no manual as promised online. The linked "manual"[...] is nothing more than a guarantee of satisfaction and some instructions for mic'ed headphones. Having no external buttons to use and being plug-and-play, you could make the argument that a manual is unnecessary anyway, but disappointing that I had to troubleshoot my initial audio without any on-hand support.

Other than those few easily survivable knocks, this is a highly impressive speaker that will bring beautiful, rich sound to any laptop.

So I bought these speakers a couple days ago, opened them a few minutes ago, and they don't work with my computer! I tried everything the troubleshooting website recommended, and it still doesn't work, although now it produces a few seconds of really terrible sound sometimes. The video demonstrates this.
Even though the description on amazon says it's a speaker for windows and macs, its user manual says it hasn't been tested for compatibility with macs!
Also, it's a heavy speaker, and might damage your USB port with longterm use.
Conclusion: Stay away, especially if you are a Mac user.
