Wow!!! What can I say, these little speakers are not only as funky as anything you are likely to see on the market, but produce an amazing high quality, rich, bassy sound, when attached to my PC. The bass may be a bit much for some people, but I love a big bassy sound so they are perfect for my requirements. To think such an amazing sound comes out of speakers 10" tall and 2.5" wide is phenomenal. I am totally blown away. I can use them with my iPod as well as my PC. OK they are not really portable, as the alienesque subwoofer certainly doesn't fit into your pocket, but if you wish to listen to music on your iPod in your room, then these are ideal. The subwoofer has a funky blue light, which makes it look as though it is from outer space. If you are looking for excellent speakers at a medium price, then these are for you - don't think twice - BUY THEM!
