      I bought this set of speakers to replace an old I had for 20 years. Besides I was running out of space on my desk. I did not want one with a subwoofer because that will take up space. After reading the reviews I choose the Sony SRS-A3 because of its size and the good reviews. And they are right, the Sony SRS-A3 put out a nice sound and have enough bass for what I needed. Nice set for the money.

          I bought these speakers for my new desktop and didn't want to break the bank. Sound quality is good for such a small set of speakers. Only complaint is that the wire that plugs into the back of the computer is only 1 meter long.

          Simple basic 2.0 speakers for everyday use that won't break your budget. Straightforward unobtrusive design without any "high tech" styling nonsense found in many low end PC speakers. These have a tough plastic grill to protect the speaker cone from damage. Sound quality is acceptable where low end bass punch and audiophile frequency response is not needed.

          Although the front of the speakers are in a flat paint, all of the other sides are glossy, which makes for a sleek appearance. The only downside of this is that you will have to wipe them down occasionally to keep them free of fingerprints.

          The sound quality is very good and surprising for the price. While they have little bass relative to what you get with speakers paired with a subwoofer, they do the job very nicely for music and gaming.

          It would be nice if they were 1-2" shorter, but the design makes up for the size.

                    I found these when looking for speakers that were small, light, and most importantly inexpensive.

                    I would recommend these speakers to someone looking for basic speakers. They are louder than I imagined they might be but the quality falls off dramatically as you increase the volume to the higher levels.

                    There is no doubt about it that spending 3-4 times as much and getting a set with higher output power and a subwoofer will dramatically improve your audio experience.

                    BOTTOM LINE: If you are an audiophile or are doing professional work, spend the money for nicer ones. But if these are for casual use so you can hear youtube videos better and listen to music at a normal volume, or you just want the next step up from laptop speakers - then these are perfect

                        Got these to replace onboard monitor speakers which failed. Pleasantly surprised at the sound quality and stereo separation of these little guys. Great bass, clear sound, nice looking simple desktop speakers. Couldn't ask for more, especially for the price. Would recommend to anyone looking for a basic 2.0 speaker that is of good quality....the headphone jack is a plus also. You will not be disappointed.

                          Loud, clear sound. My computer now ROCKS! Volume control dial is kind of small and hard to find if vision challenged.
