After seeing a similar product at a friend's house I went in search of a set for myself. I prefer to shop local so I purchased a different brand locally but it was a total disaster. After hours of trying to get the speakers to work I ended up taking them back the next day. So then I went in search online. There were so many dancing water speakers out there and the ratings varied from total hate to total love. I finally settled on ordering from B&H because their price was comparable and the shipping was free (I LOVE free shipping). The only down side was that I had to wait for them longer than usual because B&H was closed for business during Passover. (As a side note I'm glad there are still companies out there that allow their employees the time to celebrate their religion without having to worry about their job. That is a rare commodity in this day and age.)When the speakers arrived I unpacked them and had them up and running in probably 10 min at most. They worked the moment they were all plugged in and they have multiple ways to adjust the volume so you can get the best sound out of them under various conditions. I have used them with Skype and Second Life and voices come thru loud and clear and it's fun to watch the waters dance when my friends talk. They also perform well with various music formats. I was a bit concerned that several reviews said that they could hear the water pumps but in general I only hear the water splash if the music gets softer or is fading out at the end of a song. I like that they draw their power from a USB port so no extra power outlet is needed. I do think the cables are a bit short. I couldn't put the new speakers where my old speakers were set. I had to do some rearranging of my set up to find a place they could sit but I was able to work it out. They can be a bit mesmerizing to watch and you can easily lose track of time. The bottom line is that I love them and I am glad I tried one more time to get a set.

It is very easy to set it up. Plug the USB to your computer and also the audio cable to your headphones output also from you computer and it is done.
The dancing water is very cool to watch! Nice sync with the music and even better in the dark.
The sound is not very good quality and is not very loud. It is a little muffled...
and they will distort easily. Not good for watching movies. Good for music at low volumes.

    Comments about Xcellon Dancing Water Speakers - Six LEDs (Black):

    Ordered these for my son for his birthday and he loved them! The LEDs and water really put on a fun show and look cool. My husband wanted a pair, also, so we had ordered 2. Shipping was fast and it got here in 2 days from NY. One of the speaker sets came broken (water had leaked out), although they appeared to be packaged well for shipping, so I just think they were a defective pair.

    I am so happy with B&H. I called them to let them know about the broken item, and they quickly took care of it, sending me a new set right away and made it really easy by not making me send back the broken pair. Thank you for the great customer service and the fun speakers! :)

        Comments about Xcellon Dancing Water Speakers - Six LEDs (Black):

        I've rarely ever been disappointed in the quality of a product B&H carries. This one was super disappointing. I was not expecting stellar quality for the price of course. More of a novelty and something fun to put on a computer desk. Sadly after less than one week of sitting on my desk the one speaker leaked all of the "oil" that's in it for the effects. Left a nasty oil spot stain because of whatever the liquid is, on my very nice solid wood desk. Very disappointed. Definitely returning and never buying this brand again.

          pretty good sound for inexpensive speakers and the water feature in time with the beat is both fun and relaxing. I really enjoy this product! Bought two more for friends.

                  I bought this set because of the volume control on the left speaker. The set I already had in my office did not have that feature, which meant I had to turn the volume up on my computer to get the water effect, and that does not work well in an office environment. With the volume control these new speakers are perfect for the office; I can keep the volume low and still have the water effects. As soon as I connected the speakers, my boss asked where I got them and said he wanted to get some. I'm already getting another set for another office I work in.

I prefer to shop local so I purchased a different brand locally but it was a total disaster. After hours of trying to get the speakers to work I ended up taking them back the next day. So then I went in search online. There were so many dancing water speakers out there and the ratings varied from total hate to total love. I finally settled on ordering from B&H because their price was comparable and the shipping was free (I LOVE free shipping). The only down side was that I had to wait for them longer than usual because B&H was closed for business during Passover. (As a side note I'm glad there are still companies out there that allow their employees the time to celebrate their religion without having to worry about their job. That is a rare commodity in this day and age.)When the speakers arrived I unpacked them and had them up and running in probably 10 min at most. They worked the moment they were all plugged in and they have multiple ways to adjust the volume so you can get the best sound out of them under various conditions. I have used them with Skype and Second Life and voices come thru loud and clear and it's fun to watch the waters dance when my friends talk. They also perform well with various music formats. I was a bit concerned that several reviews said that they could hear the water pumps but in general I only hear the water splash if the music gets softer or is fading out at the end of a song. I like that they draw their power from a USB port so no extra power outlet is needed. I do think the cables are a bit short. I couldn't put the new speakers where my old speakers were set. I had to do some rearranging of my set up to find a place they could sit but I was able to work it out. They can be a bit mesmerizing to watch and you can easily lose track of time.

                                      Got exactly what I was looking for. The speakers have very clear sound and beautiful light show that puts me to sleep every night. There is very little bass from the speakers, if that's what your looking for, but I wasn't, and am very pleased with my purchase.

                                      Sound is average at best, visually look good. Son loves the show. His girlfriend immediately ordered a pair for herself.

                                          These speakers are more of a novelty, so you're buying them because they look cool but the sound is just average.Great for the price though.

                                            Bought these for my 16 yr. old son for Christmas. He loves them! Much better quality than the other similar water speakers for the same price! You can only go to a certain level of volume with the LEDs on though. Which is fine with me. lol But the sound is great! No static or crackle.
