Pros:These speakers are more reasonably priced than similar sized Cambridge speakers.
Cons:Not the most powerful bass response.
The Bottom Line: These are small office desktop speakers to transmit sound, not for gaming however.
I know one can spend $499 dollars and get a pair of 4" inch high end Bose speakers for the computer and they may sound a lot like 3 foot 12" inch stereo speaker cabinets, but that's for a very small cross section of the buying public.

If you want a non-gaming, simple set of 4 watt speakers, the less than $20 dollar pair of Cyber Acoustics speakers will do the job.
The pair I got from Office Depot stand a mere 7 1/2" inches high and come in black.
I put them behind my LCD display/monitor and I got them for the reason that they are small and can be placed anywhere out of the way.
The speakers have an AC adapter on the back, power button on the left speaker, as well as an 1/8" inch headphone jack and a volume knob which goes from 1-9 where the knob goes from 0-10.
The speakers are also pretty narrow at 3" inches across and are covered with a nylon mesh screen. When the power is on, a very bright blue light shows on the left speaker.
Little Bass Response:
These speakers don't get much of a bass response so they are not suitable for shooter games where the sound of guns and explosions abound. They would be too tinny for those types of applications.
For a music recording application such as Garage Band, from Apple Inc., the playback on these speakers is somewhat lacking.
The speakers work well for YouTube videos, spoken messages, and gaming at low volumes. Since the pair only have mostly treble and mid-range response, and no sub-woofer, they are unlikely to take the user away into an audio experience.
For a full spectrum experience, I would recommend their setups which include the rather substantial sub-woofers which are best utilized in computer gaming.
Sub-woofers do little to enhance the normal human voice unless one wants to watch YouTube videos at a higher volume and get some recreation of a live performance.
