Sounds/Looks great


If you can find these for under $60, buy them.

Incredible speakers for their price and relatively small size

Will not find better for the money


Have plugged these into a 13' laptop and a desk top and the sound is tremedous, you will love the look and sounds. Will order more for gifts. Everyone who has seen them is impressed with the look and sound.

They work grate


I live in an apartment, So A "ugh" sub-woofer. Would just not be an option in my case. At the same time these speakers pack just enough punch not to completely suck.

I have had these for about a year they work awesome for the price point

Not as nice as some others on the market, like i said for the price point, these are awesome

Nice Rich Sound


I put a piece of black tape 2 layers thick of the power led.

Ported wood enclosures. Outstanding craftmanship. They sound crisp and clear with a suprising amount of volume. At full volume no distortion, dont take the loudness to mean that they will blow you away. I use them with my laptop to watch Netflix and...

The blue power on indicator, and no grill gaurds over the drivers

speakers sound pretty good for the price. I have to return my first set and order another due to the crackling in my audio. cause is a faulty audio in 3.5mm cable. when they arrive in working condition, I will give them a 4 star rating.the sound will...

Fills the Bill


Because of a hearing problem I needed tone control not available on some of my audio equipment. These speakers are not for HiFi use but they are fine for a simple addition to a computer system or to meet a problem such as mine.

I was skeptical at first


I was searching for new speakers and saw the reviews were all glowing for these. I have only had these speakers for an hour and I love them. I have a compared the sound on several games and several different styles of music and am very pleased with the...

Great speakers, keep cell phone away


I LOVE THESE. An alternative to the HUGE Genius SP-HF1800A speakers. I wanted good sound quality without an annoying sub woofer I couldn't fit, or a box to plug into the wall. This cost less than half the price. It worked fine, sound quality is...

Excellent quality, no separate massive sub woofer, fairly large but not absurd compared to same brand Genius SP-HF1800A 50 W, good base and sound, economic, headphone jack (speaker volume dial will control headphone volume when in), line in jack for...

AC speakers (plug into electrical outlet) MIGHT be a con to some, no protection or mesh covering dust cover or tweeter, tweeter dome is easily bendable plastic, easily damaged and impossible to fix, doesn't effect sound quality when damaged lightly....

Extremely Pleased !!


I would definitely recommend these to a friend and I plan to buy a second set of them for one of my other computers. I am very pleased with these speakers. They may not please an audiophile, but they please me.

Sound quality is more than adequate. Wood grain veneer looks very nice. Cables seem long enough for my PC to be on either left or right side of the monitor, with the speakers at each side of the monitor. Volume/Loudness knob is also on/off switch....
