How long are the cords on these? Lots of reviews saying that it’s not enough to get it around a monitor.
From the digital trends review:
Our only complaint here is that the USB cable and the cable linking the left speaker to the right is pretty short – about 2.5 feet
The finishing touch for your Princess Leia costume.
With a frequency response that only goes down to 70Hz, I don’t see how they can brag about the bass. (And you know I’m all about that bass, 'bout that bass.)
I am not an audiophile, but I do wonder about the frequency range/response of both USB speakers and wireless speakers.
BTW I have a small JBL “On Stage II” speaker for old iPods and I use the aux-in with a common cable to get nice sound for the size.
Unlike so many other old sold-off brand names, I still do (kinda) trust JBL.
I am shocked, shocked, at the number of people who expect speakers this size to act like “lease breakers.”
I was waiting for Katy Perry to wear a pair for a mobile concert.
I have these and I like them. They have good sound. I’m not an audiophile but they sound a hell of a lot better than the set they replaced.
Both wires are about 32" long - from USB end to speaker 1 and from speaker 1 to speaker 2.
It’s long enough for me. Sound travels under and around my dual monitors just fine.
The only hitch for me is that the front dial confuses me a bit as to which way to turn it. I do most adjustments from my laptop so not a show stopper.
I do hate that it requires an open USB port to power it. Everyone I know is short on USB ports as it is (laptops even more so). Wish it had an optional plug like a normal speaker system
My pair arrived. They’re for my laptop, which is elsewhere, so I tested them out on my desktop. The USB cord was barely enough to reach to my Dell tower (sitting on the floor) but reach it did, and when I plugged it in I got the usual message about a driver being installed, and that part completed just fine. But I couldn’t get the speakers to produce sounds!
Do I have a setting off somewhere? I don’t know. My Dell Inspiron runs Windows 7 Home Premium off an AMD Athlon II X4 (2.8 gHz) and it outputs sound just fine through the standard audio out jack, so I suppose I could have hooked it up that way. I didn’t try.
I did try on my son’s laptop running Win 8, and the speakers performed just fine. Airy and musical, but a thin to nonexistant bottom end. They really do need a subwoofer. But they’ll be a sure improvement over the built-in speakers in my laptop (if they work on it.)
