Very impressed by these diminutive speakers. Ideal to leave in a bedroom or office to use with a portable device such as phone or laptop with Bluetooth. Two seperate speakers so you get a good stereo spread. Could do with an extension link cable so that you could put one each side of a double bed though. Pairing is easy. Just tell your device to look for new connections (comes up as Jembe) and enter the passkey 0000- takes about 10 seconds to link up and fade up without a click. Once that's done they link up automatically even after powerdown. Range with my Palm Tro is around 20ft with a brick wall inbetween.
I'm a professional sound man so I'm a bit pernickity when it comes to sound. Sound of the Jembes is great for such small enclosures. Not hifi, but well balanced. They lack the sparkle of hifi speakers but have a reasonably extended smooth treble which is missing from many single driver systems and also a good kick in the bass which extends to lower frequencies than you'd expect. They're not loud enough for a party or a factory floor, but more than adaquate for a bedroom or office. The sound breaks up a bit when you whack the volume up to max but at least that means that they're sensivive enough for those occasional Youtube or Vimeo videos with low sound volume.
So impressed I'm going to buy another pair.

This is good item and looks nice. You still have wires obviously (speaker to speaker and power) but one less than normal. But, in terms of function the sound quality is good for a small computer speaker and it looks relatively good compared to other options.

I bought these for streaming audio.
I have used them on a bluetooth enabled laptop and a samsung galaxy s, both worked well and is a huge improvement on audio quality. You can even adjust the volume from the playing device.
I also tried this on a laptop with a bluetooth dongle, although it worked, the audio kept cutting out every two seconds, however I suspect the dongle and not the speakers.
There is an audio jack in to the speakers so if bluetooth fails then it can be hard wired, the wire is included with the speakers.
All in all, very pleased.

I think out of all the sound equipment I ever bough I am the most satisfied with these speakers: the best value per price you can get. The are small but these things deliver a superb sound quality. They really live up to their brand name. You get a smooth base for such a small speaker bit the mid-tones is where they really shine. Even when you turn them up to the highest volume setting they still deliver a crystal clear sound.
They are perfect to watching movies or listening to your favourite mp3s . They are the ideal desktop speakers.

Note: they sound great in a small room but don't expect too much of them if you place them in your living room.

I'm not the gushing type of guy, but these speakers are just superb. Brilliant sound and they look good too.

The on/off and volume control is almost hidden and yet is is easily accessible and works smoothly. I was pleasantly surprised by the extra sound cable which enabled me to connect my bedside radio - which now sounds very good through these speakers.

Bluetooth connection established easily and clear connection.

I can't get over how good they sound and have no hesitation in recommending these to anyone who needs this type of small speakers. A very good buy.

Very easy to set-up and use and just so handy. I use these in the kitchen and the Bluetooth just works. Sound is amazing and beats any of the little boom boxes. If you want a decent set of speakers that allow good sound separation and portability is not critical then these little speakers will be prefect for a cubby hole, kitchen, conservatory or anywhere else where you cant have a full set-up but want more than portable sound.

Tried a number of different PC speakers, especially from Logitech, and at this price point (30gbp) could not find anything better. The sound is crisp and clear and connects to Android/iOS devices via Bluetooth with no issues. No sound cuts or distortions. I would recommend them, definitely.
Of course, please note these are not going to replace some higher-end speaker sets (think small KEF's or similar) but I think they are not meant to! They are for office/home office/bedroom or that kind of thing, and for that, they are very good! I bought another set for my other room and getting rid of some Logitech ones, disappointing performance compared to these (similar price point!). Some people here tend to compare "apples" with "tomatoes" and they are not valid comparisons - got to compare devices at the similar prices point, with similar functionality otherwise the comparison is not valid.

JBL have been around for a long time, bought these for general use, great value for the price studio speakers they are not but the quality for the size takes some beating.

I first saw these speakers in a store using them with a pc playing a movie.
I could not believe the quality of the sound and this was at the £69 price tag.
I was convinced there had to be a subwoofer in the setup somewhere but no, just the two JBL speakers. I have not tested the Bluetooth facility yet so my review is a little incomplete, hence only 4 stars at this stage.
