You get what you pay for. No more, no less.

I prefer leaving feedback on products I've used for some time, rather than 'in the moment' just in case problems arise.
Upon taking delivery of this speaker system, everything was included and setup within 5 minutes. The sound was pretty amazing, compared to the Creative A250's I was using before. I paid a little more for these as spec for spec, these just nudged ahead. The bass is nice and punchy, with both speakers delivering an adequate stereo experience.
Sadly, after just 8 months of use - they seem to be on their way out. The bass is not as punchy anymore, and the speakers seem to be giving me a much more tinny response which I never had before. It's almost like the wattage has been halved and I thought initially, a cable was loose, which was not the case.
They haven't been moved around - simply connected to my laptop in my bedroom and used for watching the odd film, listening to music or playing the odd game. Ideally, I think they should have lasted a good couple of years, and not the 8 months I've had them (July '15 purchased).
They still work... kinda. But not the same experience I once had so I'll be looking for alternatives.
If you're looking for something short term, these are fantastic. If you rarely think you would use them, again, go for it. But I've found that maybe I have 'overused' them to the point where I can noticably tell the difference between what I had vs what I get now.
