Advantages: loud, cheap, clear
Disadvantages: no option to reverse sound
These speakers, which I received for Christmas, are the best thing to have been plugged into a USB port. Although relatively small, 12 cm long with a diameter of 7.5 cm, are very powerful. I rarely have to turn the volume above 20 per cent on the very convenient dial to listen to music or watch a film. However, when the volume on these speakers is turned up fully, which I only did as a test, and instantly regretted it, the speakers buzz considerably and are, fortunately or unfortunately, deafeningly loud. It is a real shame that the speakers buzz at higher volumes, since the sound is otherwise crystal clear. The cables on these speakers are very long, which means that they do tend to tangle but I'm sure that if you want them as desktop speakers (I use them for my laptop) that would not be a problem. Being powered by USB and receiving sound through a regular headphone jack means these speakers are universally compatible, with no software needed. One more minor problem is that, due to the positioning of the DVD drive on my computer and positioning of cables on the speakers requiring me to set up the speakers only one way round, left and right are reversed, which is highly irritiating for surround sound films.
Summary: A great set of speakers that only have faults if you try to find them.
