Great for what we got them for,

This review is from: Pyle Home PCB3BK 3-Inch 100-Watt Mini Cube Bookshelf Speakers - Pair (Black) (Pair) (Electronics)
We just got a 42" plasma tv, and as we all know, the speakers on these TVs aren't very good. I have a high end stereo (not home theater) and can play the TV sound through the stereo speakers, but my big speakers are made more for music, not dialog. I got these Pyle speakers to use as an "inbetween" solution. I hooked them up as the "B" speakers on the stereo and they do a very admirable job. MUCH better than the TV speakers. When we want to just relax with a show, we turn on just the B speakers, when we're watching something that needs big sound, we turn on the big speakers as well for nice full sound. Eventually we'll get an AV tuner as well, and use these little speakers for center speakers. Not a lot of bass response, so don't expect that, but miles better than the built in TV speakers.

Jimbo, do you have to use a tuner for these, or can you plug directly into a headphone jack on a plasma?

If speakers sound good for music, they should sound good for TV. I do not understand why you felt you needed different speakers to listen to TV.
These speakers need amplification, so no, you cannot connect them to most TVs and get sound. You need an amplifier of some sort, such as a reciever.
