I have used these plugged into my computer with well-balanced rock, pop, jazz, and classical CDs. These speakers have really good sound clarity, a little too much high end (but precise, not tinny), no really low bass below about 100Hz. A ski slope EQ curve works well with them. It has enough power to fill a normal size bedroom or office without distorting. The lack of really low bass suits me fine since it isn't overpowering and won't disturb people in the next room but I suspect the well-rated 3-speaker Cyber Acoustics Subwoofer Satellite System (CA-3602) would have a fuller sound and sound better at low volume. Overall, compared to the numerous 2 and 3-speaker systems from Creative Labs, Altec Lansing, stock Dell speakers, etc. that I've tested, these have far better sound and are great speakers for this price range.

Here are some very dumb design choices you should be aware of, though:
- The audio cable is only 42 inches long! Unless you have a laptop or portable audio device, this just isn't going to reach your computer's audio port and you're going to be really frustrated. If so, you'll need to buy a 3.5mm Extension Cable (they're cheap). Thankfully I had one but odds are you don't.
-The volume control consists of separate plus and minus buttons on the front of the right speaker, along with a push-button power switch. They're stiff to engage so pushing the buttons slides the speaker around without achieving your intended aim. You have to hold onto the speaker to press the button. Really dumb. Additionally, you have no visual cue as to what the volume is set at.
-The speakers curve at the top and have the grill cloth continue up that curve also.

I originally purchased these speakers in an electronics store. Using my iPhone and iTunes, I was able to compare around 6 brands/models in the same price range. These were a little more than I wanted to spend, but they were so much LOUDER (with good bottom and top end) than the other brands, I chose them. Now I'm buying a second pair to use on my laptop - the sound volume and quality varies so much when streaming movies, these speakers are a necessity.

The green cable for connecting the speakers to the computer is short and permanently connected to the right speaker. My computer is under the left side of my desk, which means the cable doesn't even come close to reaching.

I don't want to reorganize my desk and computer location just to accommodate some simple speakers, so unfortunately I'll be returning these. It would be better if the green cable could be plugged into to either speaker.

The speakers are ok. I love that you can plug in your phone and charge it while listening to music. Good for you the office. There was just a problem when receiving them. Called Amazon, they are now sending a new pair. Big up for Amazon.

I am no audiophile, therefore I may be enjoying these delightful little speakers more than I should. But enjoy them I do! Music appears undistorted with all the treble and bass my unsophsticated eardrums require. They have brought to life a fairly extensive library of all kinds of music on my iPad that had previously been confined to my earbuds. Now they are blasting at me from my desktop and I'm loving it! The sound appears clean and non-tiresome. The speakers blend into the background appearance and geography with their gentle, non-intrusive shape and small base area. The fact that the system can be charging my iPad simultaneously with their use is a thoughtful and useful feature.
Perhaps my enthusiasm is best expressed by the fact that I intend to order another set for my bedroom ASAP!
Join the fun....the cost and risk are really quite modest, IMHO.

These speakers got the job done for private laptop viewing. If you plan on playing music in a larger room, forget about it. these are purely desktop speakers. Personally, i would rather have spend a little more money on some logitech speakers.

The order arrived very promptly, well exactly when it was expected. Very excited to receive the delivery and got it all set up right away. Only issue which admittedly I didn't plan ahead for was that it features an American plug and I'm in Australia. Derp. Getting an adapter was easy enough and I may even just re-wire it. But all in all, the sound output is amazing. Rarely need to turn it up full blast but it's always nice knowing there's plenty left in the tank.

This product is decent but not excellent. Highs and mids are good but any amount of bass causes distortion. For the price these speakers are a good choice. I use them for my Dell Inspiron laptop and they provide a significantly better sound than the laptop had.
