They're fine. But to be honest every other piece of audio equipment I've bought over the last few years or so has struck me as a big step forward in terms of quality for the money, and these don't. I had desktop speakers years ago that were a little more expensive than these but sounded way better. I'm a little disappointed given the reviews, and I don't think these are particularly good value at the £24 I paid. I've seen a few comments that they used to be less but have been jacked up because of the popularity. That sounds about right.
The sound is clear in the mid ranges, and they look nice, but there is very little low end to speak of and as soon as you pick them up and feel how light and plastic-y they are it's pretty obvious why. I'm also not finding the high end particularly subtle or forgiving. Not bad speakers for the price, but not particularly good either. If I bought these on a whim in Curry's I wouldn't be disappointed, but for me when I invest time scouring Amazon for the best product at a given price point I expect a little more.
If I was buying again I'd probably spend a few more quid to go higher end and get more weight/nuance to the sound, or save a few quid and accept that sound quality is not really what I'm after. For me these live in a bit of a no-man's land at the £24 price point.
