I bought these speakers because my laptop's sound system isn't quite loud enough for me to enjoy playback on Youtube, nor to enjoy TV playback from the other side of the room. It's a tiny laptop, virtually a tablet, so that's no big surprise.

I wanted speakers to match my modest budget, and to amplify the sound nicely with no frills - I knew I couldn't afford them. I wanted something very easy to install. Also, whilst I was at it, perhaps they might assist me with playing back sound from my Kindle as well as my laptop.

I'm amply satisfied with these little speakers. They amplify the sound and give a nicely balanced, rounded effect. I can listen to music from anywhere in my flat now as well as get a life-like TV response from my laptop. You can hear individual musical instruments, finger-clicking and birds tweeting on nature programmes. I frequently practice yoga using online sites such as YogaGlo and these are a real revelation with the speakers. It may sound sad but it helps me to hear the other students step to the front of the mat when told to, or groan when the hold gets too long - just like being in the room with the teacher.

As an added bonus, the instruction booklet is written in clear, plain English.

Suitable for those looking for speakers that are easy to assemble - simply plug the USB into computer or tablet. If you can use a memory stick or headphone jack you can use these speakers. Their clean plain lines, no fuss packing and easy usage make them not impossible for those with a visual disability.

"I love it" is an overstatement, but for £12 these are good enough, very loud (in the realm of USB powered) powered from a 20watt USB hub, and utterly unobtrusive on the workbench. GREEN LED not blue, and it's nice and dim too, this pleases me immensely, you can tell these speakers were designed by someone with a clear 'no blingy crap' goal. Sturdy plastic boxes and metal grill. Generous cable lengths.

That said, those white logitechs sound better, look better, and are great for close up listening or a e s t h e t i c desktops, but have very, very short cables and exposed drivers.

No surprise these budget-priced speakers do not offer high-end state-of-the-art sound, but nevertheless they’re outstanding value for the asking price.

They’re lightweight and compact for use on a desk or small shelf, powered directly from your PC or notebook via a USB cable and with the sound via a 3.5mm audio jack into the speaker/mike socket. A single rotating knob on one of the speakers acts as the volume control for both.

The speakers will amplify the sound from a laptop’s built-in speakers by a factor of x10 with no distortion. They arrive well-packed and with instructions in clear English, thought the product is so simple you don’t really need them: just plug-in the USB cable and 3.5mm audio jack and off you go.

Great value and a bargain-buy.

Usage case: to supplement a monitor without speakers for skype and general purpose audio

Pros:
- They feel well built for the price
- Sound is very good in my opinion
- They get decently loud
- Rather compact
- Plug and play

Cons:
- A lot of cables (3 in particular, you don't want to move this with you, there are better, more compact, wireless alternatives at similar prices if you want to use it with laptops or phones, Anker comes to mind as an example...)

In general I am positively surprised with them and would definitely recommend them.

These are great for the price I paid (£9.99).

The sound, of course, isn't amazing but they pack a good enough punch at medium volume and nothing sounds distorted.

There is a slight warm tone from them which compensates for the lack of low end.

Powered from a mains USB charger, they sound really quite good.

These are absolutely brilliant little speakers!! they measure just over 5'' tall and 3'' wide yet they pack a volume punch way above their tiny weight. The sound quality is excellent, with no background hiss at any level, easy to set up, just plug into the laptop and switch on. I cannot recommend this product highly enough, excellent value for the price paid, compact and unobtrusive, two lovely little speakers.

just fantastic sound at a great price. all you have to do plug the speakers in to the usb port on computer and the 3.5mm jack plug into the headphone socket then one of the speakers as a turn on/volume button turn on ready to go. quite loud without any distortion of sound.

I've had these a few weeks and used a number of times. Very quick and and convenient and handy indeed to 'plug in' to my mac whenever I need them. (I move my mac about a fair bit so don't always bother moving the speakers with it unless I am anticipating needing goodish sound.) The leads are, I think, pretty long which is very good. They seem pretty sturdy. If I dropped one, I would expect it to be ok. I wish they were a little bit louder, otherwise I'd give 5 stars. They are loud enough, I suppose.. but.. But for the money, I can't fault them. Very nice product.
