Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty great for the price These speakers have a lovely strong sound that make music even more enjoyable to listen to, they are also great if you're starting up a studio to mix and record on. Only problem is if you have them on too long at a high volume they can over heat and turn off, at first I thought they broke but after an hour or so once they cooled down they started working again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid - they don't last These speakers are good until they break, which is 12-18 months after purchase and conveniently outside the warranty period. Basically it seems they get too hot and the soldering wears at the speaker select switch causing them to stop emitting sound. Customer service are very unhelpful - retailer tells you go to go the manufacturer, who tell you to go to the distributor and they just tell you your warranty is out. Don’t risk these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid. Won't last Same as many others here, they stop working after 12-18 months. I bought 3 sets of these for the studio. 2 have stopped after 16months. Waiting for the others to likely die. Won't buy this prroduct again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect budget studio speaker Bought a few weeks ago and really loving it. Sound reproduction is incredible and the volume goes pretty high. Perfect if you're on a budget as it does its job incredibly well especially considering the price. Couldnt plug to my tv though, it might just be me but I don't know.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great when they work. These sound great when they are working, however mine stopped working after about 16 months. Sometimes they will turn on, othertimes they turn on but no sound comes through. I think the internal soldering came undone as the speakers run very very hot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great sound, but won't last long I first bought these a couple of years ago and after about a year, they stopped working. JBHIFI gave me a replacement and here we are again, having the exact same issue. Very frustrating!
