These speakers were SHOCKING! I beg anyone looking at reviews to trust the review and NOT purchase. There was some background static and some other noise, plus my normal speakers were louder, and I have a macbook Air, probably the worst laptop speakers ever! They felt like absolute crap, are lightweight and easily breakable, and are literally the worst 'speakers' I've ever heard or seen. Please do not purchase, it was such a waste of money, and I threw them in the bin about 20 minutes after they arrived. Wasn't even worth the postage to return!
