Well, Altec Lansing is one of the best brands when it comes to desktop computer speakers.
From my personal experience with this model I can tell you they are high-quality speakers with a very durable construction that don't break even after falling off your desk.
They have this compact design and a neutral look that won't make them stand out from all the gadgets in your room, but the sounds are detailed and powerful, as well as the bass.
Let's say you could run a small party in a small living room.
Another thing I'd like to mention is that when you use these speakers at maximum volume there won't be any noise, the sounds will have the same clarity.
You can clean them easily with a standard cloth and window solution, but after drying you'll see subtle spots left by the substance used for cleaning.
After about 5 years of moving the two small speakers from place to place in my room, the cables in the back of one of the speakers started to come out, which breaks the sound sometimes, but in the rest I had no problems with them.
