The sound quality is very good for such small speakers!

It fits my 14" laptop perfectly, clipping on top and hanging unobtrusively behind the screen.

Let me preface this by saying two things. One: I almost never write reviews on products I buy. Two: I take my music seriously. I use a pair of $1,600.00 professional studio monitors for my desktop speakers.

Now the review. I needed something portable for a new 15.6" HP laptop. The reviews on this were good so I figured it was worth a try. I wasn't expecting much given the small size, USB power source, and low price.

When I fired this up for the first time, my jaw was on the floor! This thing is ridiculously good. Obviously, it doesn't output much mid or low base, but above that this thing is great! It puts out enough volume that I had to turn it down slightly in a 10' x 12' room. The sound is what I would expect from something costing hundreds of dollars, not $60.00. This thing has "air", it has a flat sounding frequency response, it's just amazing.

To the reviewers who are complaining that the price is high, I say: You've got to be kidding! For the sound quality it produces, this thing is stupid cheap.

I can't recommend this unit highly enough.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have a 17" HP Entertainment Laptop. It's supposed to have some pretty good Altec Lansing top firing speakers and I've always thought they were decent until I installed this. The sound was much richer and even at full volume I did not detect any significant distortion.

This is the best laptop-specific speaker I've ever tried. The clip on design gets the speakers off your desk and the USB connection allows the speakers to be used anywhere, even while the laptop is sitting on your lap. The sound controls are simple. The speaker has an on/off button as well as volume up and down. That's it. It's simple and just brings a higher quality sound to the laptop without being obtrusive or bulky.

The length of the speaker is very well thought out. It's about 2" too short from extending the full length of my laptop. I would imagine they're a bit big for smaller laptops and just right for the average 15.4" laptop screen.

The carrying case is a nice touch if you travel, but I think even without the case these speakers will be fine. They're very sturdy and have no soft parts that can be easily damaged.

If portability is important to you, and you listen to music, play games, or chat on web cam, I think you will really enjoy these speakers. For $59.99 it's a very cheap way to upgrade your laptops sound system.

I just received the Logitech Z305 speaker today, and I am very happy with it. So much so, that I think it may be the best and only portable USB powered laptop speaker to get. What follows is my review and comparison of the 3 USB powered speakers I now have:

1. The first USB powered speaker I purchased was the Altec Lansing iML237USB ORBIT:

Altec Lansing iML237USB ORBIT, Ultra Portable USB-Powered Speaker

I was pleased with the sound quality of the Altec Lansing ORBIT. And at about $23 including shipping, you probably cannot get a better sounding USB powered speaker for the money.

2. But after a while, I wanted the convenience of having a USB powered speaker that I could attach onto the laptop. So, I asked for and received the Logitech Z205 for Christmas which cost about $46 including shipping:

Logitech Laptop Speaker Z205

with A Lightweight, Clip-on Design and USB Stereo Sound, This Smart Speaker Is A

The Logitech Z205 was indeed convenient as it clipped on top of the laptop. But although it sounded appreciably better than the built-in speakers on any of my laptops and netbooks, I was nonetheless underwhelmed by the sound quality. The Altec Lansing ORBIT at half the price sounded much better.

3. So then I read the CNET review of the more expensive Logitech Z305 which also clips on top of the laptop.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have serious issues with the speakers on my MacBook. For one, I can't even figure out where exactly the speakers are since there are no standard speaker holes like you see with other laptops. Perhaps, that simple fact is the reason why I typically have to have the volume all the way up to hear things on my laptop. The sound quality really doesn't drive me batty until I'm doing something several feet away from the laptop, like cooking dinner while listening to music or a pod cast, and I can't hear what's playing. The Logitech z305 Clip-on Laptop Speaker solves this problem and delivers great sound quality and volume. (Yay!)

At times I can be technically impaired when it comes to installing new electronic devices. Thankfully, Logitech makes their instructions crystal clear and easy to follow. Installing this speaker on your laptop is very simple. You just have to clip it on the monitor portion of the laptop and plug it into your USB port. After that I just needed to enable the speaker with a few clicks in my Mac settings and I was set. From start to finish installation and configuration took me about 30 seconds. Since the speaker is powered by the laptop, there's no need to worry about batteries. The clip is nicely padded so you won't have to worry that it will damage your laptop.

When the speaker is not in use you can store it in the nice little drawstring storage bag that was included. I could live with or without the storage bag, but I certainly think it was a nice touch.

Overall, I think this is a great product that is easy to use and thoughtfully designed.
