One-Cord Connection for Added Convenience
The BXR1220 speakers draw power from your computer via its USB port, so you don't need to free up an outlet. The speakers are a perfect way to improve the sound quality of your laptop's speakers, with no extra power cord to pack when you want great sound on the go.
Audio Alignment Technology for Superb Accuracy and Alignment
The BXR1220 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 -- each speaker measures only 3.7 inches in height -- saves valuable room on your desk and makes it easy to carry them along with your laptop.
The BXR1220 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 BXR1220 speaker system is covered by a one-year limited warranty.

The power switch for the unit is located on the sub-woofer which I would prefer to place under my computer work station in the corner which would require me to crawl under the desk each time that I wanted to turn the unit on. Have others place the sub-woofer someplace more convenient, sacrificing the deeper bass by placing it in the corner? Seems like a design fail to me.
For ~$45 it's not worth making a big stink -- and the sound is fine for computer audio streaming -- but the power switch placement certainly seems like an odd choice.
I bought these for my GF at Christmas. I own a pair of 10+ year old Altec Lansing computer speakers which I use every day on my primary PC to listen to music and they are absolutely fabulous! When I saw my GF using Skype and oovoo video conferencing programs on her computer for weekly get-togethers with her family around the country and that her sound is running through the oh-such-poor-quality built-in speakers in her monitor, I could only shake my head in disbelief! I asked her if she had ever heard high quality sound coming out of her computer to which she shook her head "no". Initially she was impressed with the large box awaiting her at Christmas but as she unwrapped the paper and saw what it was, the look on her face changed to one of puzzlement. Once I hooked these up and cranked up some YouTube videos for her, her interest piqued! She didn't have an inkling that any sound coming from her computer could sound so incredible! Now, she can hear her family on conference calls and not always complain about how bad her computer and speakers are. When it comes time to replace my Altec Lansing Computer speakers, I'm going to replace them with another pair of Altec Lansing. Once you find something that works the way you need and want it to, you stick with it!
UPDATE: I did start to experience a bit of buzzing when the speakers were not playing anything. In order to correct this, I disconnected the speaker cord and simply blew the dust out of the contacts and it is fine now. Or, sometimes just unplugging and replugging the speaker cord in works too. Still love these speakers!
The speakers work really well. The sounds quality is great. I have had them for i think about a year/year1/2 and they have worked perfectly the whole time. I would recommend these to anyone who wants some nice speakers for a nice price.
About a year and a half ago I had 500$ burning a whole in my pocket. All my friends were playing video games while i was at work all the time. So i decided i wanted a ps3. So i bought the uncharted bundle. Then i realized i needed a monitor. So i found a decent one and bought all the cables and stuff that i would need. So for cables, monitor and a ps3 i had spent about $450. I got it all to my house through amazon. Hooked it all up and realized i had no sound. So i ran to the computer and searched and search for decent speakers for about $40 because tax and shipping would make it go up. I found a lot of different speakers that i thought would be nice but none of them did what i wanted them to do. Such as i wanted 2.1 speaker system and for $40 you can only really find little 2 speaker sets. I decided on these and when they got to my apartment i was honestly not expecting much for $40. But the sounds turned out to be great. I use these for my computer, my ps3 and my tv (Im kinda broke so they also all use the same 23in monitor). I was also not expecting the quality to stick around this long. I have had no drop in quality what so ever. Hope you enjoyed my review.
