          Comments about JBL Jembe 2-Piece Powered Computer Speaker System:

          When I initially opened the box I was perplexed as there are no written instructions, but after looking at the picture instructions, I realized how to set them up. There is no marking as to which speaker is the Right and which one is the Left. After calling India, twice as the first call was directed to an Indian who's English was poor and could not understand my question, I got someone who at least had a decent concept of the English language. I had found out that the Speaker with all of the Wires attached and the Jacks, is the Right Speaker.
          When I first connected the speakers up to my computer and and got some sound to them they sounded good but were too Heavy on the Bass for me. I got into the speaker section of my computer and set up the equilization which levelled out the Bass and brought more of the Midrange and Highs. Now they sound Great. They also look Good.
          They do turn off after 3 minutes, but as soon as a signal is detected, they immediately power back on and distribute sound. The only issue I have with the speakers is that the cords that connect to the computer and the Left speaker are hardwired probably soldered into the right speaker. I prefer the wires to be separate from the jacks
          After I completed my purchase, I read some of the reviews and was having second thoughts. When I connected the speakers up and set the equilization, I had realized that some reviewers might not have gotten familiar with the product. I would definitely recommend these speakers.

              These are great small speakers for an office or bedroom where you don't want to wake up the entire house. The sound is surprisingly bassy and clear for the size of this. Amazing quality/price ratio.

                Comments about JBL Jembe 2-Piece Powered Computer Speaker System:

                These computer speakers have a small footprint but surprisingly rich sound for their size and price. Well-designed, the top volume knob is a great touch. I use them to play music in my office while working. They would not satisfy a serious audiophile's ears, but they have much better sound than any other budget computer speakers I've heard. I do wish the cord for the audio jack was longer, and I also wish they had a hard on/off switch. But those are both minor issues, overall I'm very satisfied with these speakers.

                Much better sounding than the stock speakers that come with your computer. The music I listen to sounds louder and richer, and I'm a musician always listening to learn songs. I bought for the good reviews and the name, and wasn't disappointed.

                  Another great deal on desktop speakers from JBL. Having used both generations of JBL Duet speakers in the past - I can say that the new Jembe is an amazingly great deal for a desktop speaker. Should be enough for most users looking for a good looking, quality and fairly priced set up.

                    I was looking for powered speakers to use with a flat screen TV that had lousy sound. I also wanted them to be portable, to put in a bag to use on vacation with an iPod or iPhone. I own several other JBL speaker sets, from studio monitors, bookshelf speakers and guitar amp speakers, and love them. Despite being Chinese-made, these speakers sound great for their size! More balanced than a 2.1 with subwoofer. What also sold me was the auto on/off feature that senses a signal, perfect for use with the TV as you can just use the TV remote, and not have to turn the speakers on and off separately, as with many powered systems. Finally, they look unique and stylish, and have metal grills that do not attract scratching attention from the cats, as fabric grills can. Highly recommended for quality sound in a small package for TV, computer or iPod/smartphone.

                                Sound is great, full of bass and small enough. I was looking for a speaker system 2.0. I don't like 2.1 systems because they are big and much more than I usually need.

                                  Even much better than I expected. I'm not a big bass fan but from the speakers of this size you won't believe the bass you get. The clarity is just as the other reviews say. JBL may have inserted some battery slots for the go but these would possibly put onstage ontour... in trouble. The glossy finish is the only bad feature for me because of the finger prints.. A month after purchasing these I bought the Creative T20 Series II. They are also awesome but for the size it is the JBL that is unbelievable.

                                    I use these speakers with my computer at work. I wanted speakers that took little room on my desk. The height didn't matter, just the "footprint." I also needed speakers that connected with a mini-phone jack not a USB jack. I chose the JBL brand because they made well-rated home-audio speakers. The use is mostly for voice from video conferencing. Playback of music sounded good. I didn't expect the speakers to fully reproduce organ music with tones from the contrabombarde pipes. Of course that information is contained in the stated low-frequency end of 80 Hz.

                                    One feature different from the JBL speakers that I replaced, these speakers go to standby after a period of no input. So the short tone to notify me of receipt of a new e-mail message is not long enough to switch the speakers back on. Since e-mail has become a monster, and since I don't care whether I get an audio alert of a new message, this is not a problem. It no doubt saves a little power if you forget to turn them off. The on-off switch is the rotating top of one of the speakers. So it's easy for me to reach around the monitor to get at it. The power light is "on" when the speakers are in use, and "off" when the power is turned of or when the speakers are in standby mode.

                                    The power supply came with plug prongs that snap into the power supply. It may be that the power supply is adaptable to European jacks. The instructions did not say.

                                    The price was in the range of prices for comparable speakers found during several internet searches. The seller included standard shipping (eight days)in the list price. They packed the speakers well.
