Advantages: Small, stylish and sound great. USB powered so are portable.
Disadvantages: Have their limits, so don't expect 'hi fi' levels of sound.
I was lucky enough to get a pair of these speakers bundled with a recent laptop purchase and as I'm quite picky with sound quality, I was very interested to plug them in hear what they could do.
First impressions, as always with speakers, are the weight. Unless the manufacturer has weighted the product it always gives you a good idea how decent the speakers will be, especially in bass response etc.
If they are very light, you'll most likely get a 'light' sound for example.
So, although these are small compact and stylish little speakers I was encouraged that they had a bit of weight to them out of the box.
They come with a three foot (or so) connecting lead between the speakers - so you can't have them a long way apart, and then the same kind of length for a usb cable (to power the speakers) and a 3.5mm audio jack lead to connect to your laptop of computer's sound output.
I popped in a chart pop CD and gave it whirl and was really impressed by both the bass, mid and highs of these speakers. The stereo field was also good, really punchy and crisp. I put them through their paces by altering the sound from pop, rock and jazz settings etc via the media player and they handled the changes well. I eventually settled on a custom setting that pushed up the bass a little and took away the sharpness in the 'middle'.
Although these can pump out quite a sound, not enough to be considered 'hi fi' levels, but certainly enough for laptop use in a bedroom etc.
The speakers I have are white, which do clash with the standard laptop black colour most people are used to, but I'm not sure if you can buy them in other colours. Just something to bear in mind if you want your kit to match.
These speakers are not as impressive as a 2.1 set up that include a bass box, but if you want that kind of sound you would be buying these. They are approx 4.5inches square in size, so can be considered portable as well (especially as they are usb powered).
In conclusion, a nice option for small compact speakers that offers a decent sound.
Summary: A good choice for compact speakers.
