Customer Reviews of the JLab USB Laptop Speakers
Here are some phrases from the customer reviews on Amazon. I have included both comments that have given the JLab speakers high praise, as well as a few specific negative comments, so that you can judge for yourself if this handy little speaker system will work for you.
"Great sound from a little package."
"Not recommended for Dell Laptops. After several weeks, the speaker stopped working."
"Small, easily transportable, decent sounding speakers."
"They take up approximately the same amount of suitcase space as a computer mouse."
"I own a 2007 MacBook ... and I cannot believe I lived for so long before without (this speaker)"
"Terrific Little Speaker with Clear, Strong Sound"
In particular, I found that this review was especially honest and helpful, and wanted to be sure to pass it on:
"I read the lukewarm and negative reviews...but ordered one, anyway. This is one cool device ... Get real ... Sure the sound is not studio quality. However, it greatly surpasses computer built-in speakers."
These reviews should help potential buyers have realistic expectations about the sound quality and the convenience of this handy accessory, which makes listening to music on your laptop much more enjoyable.
Bottom Line on these Laptop Speakers
Although the JLab USB Laptop Speakers may not be the perfect sound solution for everyone all the time, from the customer reviews I read they appear to be small, portable and capable of producing reasonably high quality sound for anyone who wants to amplify the sound from their laptop. They are also easy to travel with, since they take up very little space in your carry-on bag. They also make great gifts for anyone you know who enjoys watching movies or listening to music on their laptop. You can learn more about them by checking out the ad at the end of this article.
