The visual appearance is fine. Its not pretty, but its not ugly either. Its relatively small and unobtrusive.
The sound is average at best. There's practically no bass response, a disappointment. I've heard wonderful bass from speakers far smaller than this, so size is no excuse. Its really hard to discern any real bass coming out at all, almost all highish mid range and high range. Second, the treble is definitely colored, and sounds somewhat muffled. Compared to similar products in size and price point, the treble is probably similar to, or slightly below those products, which are, imho, largely unacceptable. It just feels like your typical mass produced speaker product that received very little sound engineering design attention.
And what's up with the name? Why does every company have to follow apple and have an "i-something"? Is creativity so gone?
I cannot recommend this product.
The second problem is that the audio through USB is only 1 channel, not 2.1. Only the right speaker would work for me. In order to use all the speakers and have it sound nice, I had to run the included audio cable from my computer to the speaker's auxiliary port.
So what should have been a one cable wonder turns out to be three cables (power, usb, and audio) if I want to use all the features and have it still sound good (which is kinda the point of speakers).
For anyone who says that a system like this HAS to have an external power source and that I am stupid, I have the Logitech N700 Lapdesk laptop cooler which has built in speakers. That thing is entirely powered via USB and includes two speakers, a subwoofer, and a cooling fan. It is nothing short of impressive. And the volume up, volume down, and mute buttons send commands directly to Windows to adjust the volume control from within Windows, not just on the speakers.
The speakers are a bit of a letdown from my 5.1 channel system that it is replacing. But I expected that. I did not expect it to be as tinny and have as awful bass as it did. I would much rather hook up my Logitech N700 than this.
Overall, not impressed and I would not buy this again.

I though it would be better but the sound is weak and looks more like a toy. Instead of using for my PC I will just use for a tablet. Read morePublished on January 22, 2013 by Yosemity
