I chose these speakers to use with my laptop at university, so they are used for a range of things including watching films, listening to music quietly, playing music at gatherings (<30 people) and listening to podcasts/radio etc.
The sound quality is undeniably better than that from my computer, although it could be better. The volume is decent for my uses as listed above however for anything more it wouldn't be loud enough: this can be expected when you look t the size of them. They are relatively powerful for their size, compared to other speakers of at least treble the size I have previously used!
Some small issues are that the cord for plugging it in isn't very long, and the main part of the speaker is heavier than expected, though the latter point is only an issue as I am a student packing up my room 6 times a year!
Also, when trying to position the left/right speakers the wires are often too stiff for them to stay in the exact position you want, but this is easily rectified by manually softening the wires.
I bought these on special offer for £15 but even at double the price I feel they are overall good quality for the price.
