      The product is extremely easy to set up and use. It automatically connects to the Bluetooth device and if it doesn't you just press a button and it is all taken care of. The sound quality is also really good: it is very clear. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to get rid of some wires wires while still getting great sound.

      I bought these speakers specifically to test the bluetooth capabilities. They connect very easily to various devices and it is pretty straight forward to switch between iPhone to iPad, for instance. Simply close one device connection, press the button on the speaker to reset, then turn on bluetooth for another device.
      The sound is clear, not that powerful, the bass reflex on the back is somewhat helpful when placed near a wall.
      Useful for portability and convenience, will not deliver a powerful sound but does provide clarity and convenience.

        Wow! These speakers work great. We use them to listen to Pandora, Netflix, Hulu... from our Samsung Gallagy II's, An old Dell inspiron1721 (2006), and an Acer laptop. Very decent sound from such small speakers. Pairs easily to the phones, but we had to buy a bluetooth nub for the laptops, even though they were bluetooth ready. Not sure why. Still, Very happy with the speakers.

              Bought these speakers for my son's computer because of the bluetooth to avoid all the wires. I also bought a separate bluetooth USB device to add bluetooth to my son's desktop. They paired with no problem. Great sound from these small speakers. Bluetooth range is good. Great product. If your desktop does not have bluetooth connectivity, B&H has a USB device that adds bluetooth to your desktop.

I love the design, very sleek and masculine. I have not found anything to dislike about them. I would recommend to friends.

                  Comments about Creative Labs Inspire T12 Bluetooth Wireless 2.0 Speaker System:

                  I bought this product in hopes that I could decrease the amount of wires zigzagging around my small desk. The speakers I previously owned had to connected to the computer and had a control knob separate, so the speakers added a lot to my mess of wires... That is why I opted to go wireless. The reason I chose this particular speaker system was not just the Bluetooth capability, but also because it has a built in "bass". The picture doesn't show it, but there is a type of small bass located in the back of each speaker.
                  The Pros:
                  These speakers definitely solved my wire problem. Space Saving!
                  They are a breeze to connect wirelessly. I had absolutely no problem installing them. And I am not a computer wiz... So if I could do it, anyone can.
                  The sound quality is great. The volume range is perfect for a single room or open living area.
                  The "bass" that is integrated into the speakers does very well. I could certainly tell the difference compared to regular computer speakers. It didn't produce a huge sound, but just enough to enhance the sound. It also saves more space not having to have a separate bass.
                  The Cons:
                  While the sound range is great for a single room, if you're looking for something that's very loud for large areas - there are better speakers. I admit they are quieter than previous speakers I have owned.
                  The integrated "bass" does not compare to a separate bass systems. But, it is a nice feature. It is better than having no bass at all.
                  The speaker is larger than most desk top speakers. This is due to the added "bass" attacked to the back of the speakers. I wouldn't say they are huge, just a bit bigger than normal. I didn't have a problem with the size, but if you are looking for really compact speakers... These are not it.
                  Overall:
                  I love these speakers. They provide quality sound (especially for the price), and save space. I would highly recommend them.

                  It is hard to find speaker with the full 20 to 20,000 Hz range such a compact size. These do that and do it well. I like speakers with neutral sound quality - so many units today are either very strong on treble of very boomy in the base. These are a great balance.

                  sound volume is plenty to fill our 16 x 20 office without distortion.

                  I running these on a Mac Pro using the bluetooth link. Occasionally the connection will drop, but I have the same problem with the bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

                  All in all, great sound for an attractive price, and the units are attractively styled and unobtrusive on my desk.

                    I'm very impressed with the sound that these speakers produce. The bass is rich and deep while the treble has nice highs. The sound is not flat at all like some other desktop speakers I've owned. They are very easy to set-up and work perfectly with my Mac Book Pro. The set-up takes a few seconds and to switch to my iPhone the set-up is just as simple. You hold down the button on the front of the speaker for a few seconds and the green light starts flashing blue which means the speakers are discoverable to any bluetooth device. I highly recommend these speakers to anyone who wants a great sounding pair of speakers that are easy to set-up and are very affordable. They even sound better than my Bose desktop speakers which is saying something!

                      I love this product! I use these speakers in my boutique and they work great. These speakers allow me to play music in my store from my computer. They are just what I needed and are very easy to set up!

                        I bought these speakers specifically to test the bluetooth capabilities. They connect very easily to various devices and it is pretty straight forward to switch between iPhone to iPad, for instance. Simply close one device connection, press the button on the speaker to reset, then turn on bluetooth for another device.
                        The sound is clear, not that powerful, the bass reflex on the back is somewhat helpful when placed near a wall.
                        Useful for portability and convenience, will not deliver a powerful sound but does provide clarity and convenience.

                          The product is extremely easy to set up and use. It automatically connects to the Bluetooth device and if it doesn't you just press a button and it is all taken care of. The sound quality is also really good: it is very clear. I would recommend this product to anyone who wants to get rid of some wires wires while still getting great sound.
