These Sony speakers are fairly big, about 8 1/12" tall. Considering the size, these might be a bit tall for a laptop user to carry around with him/her. I personally use these speakers for PC use, and i am quite impressed with the quality.
My speakers that i used for my PC before were not of the highest quality, so i had a very noticeable improvement in the quality of the sound when i switched. I found that these speakers deliver a very rich and bold sound. the resonating bass is quite impressive for the size of these speakers. These speakers have been engineered perfectly for its purposes, something that Sony never fails to disappoint in.
Sometimes i use these speakers to listen to quiet music while studying. The sound does not feel tinny at all, it plays all volumes of music in a very good fashion.
For the price, these speakers are well worth the price. sure, you can dump your money on other high-quality Bose, Harmon Kardon, or Logitech - but you can achieve the same quality by trying out these Sony speakers. These speakers will not break the bank, and they will deliver a high quality rich in bass for a fraction of the cost!
