I bought for $ 20, in general, they play for this money, no more, no less. Perfect for movies and games. You can listen to music, but for music the sound is mediocre, in order for something to start sounding, you will have to turn the equalizer, while you need to be prepared for a compromise on the reproduced frequencies, if you want to remove the sound effect "from the barrel" or otherwise "mumbling", you will have to sacrifice some frequencies. I set it up for my taste, I’ll attach a screen of the settings, maybe it will help someone, in general, a more or less universal setting turned out, suitable for different directions in music, but with a stretch of course. On my computer, I lowered the overall volume to 30%, with such a signal, the speakers do not "overwhelm" at their maximum volume. There is no "background" when the speakers are simply turned on, I think that in this price range, if the speakers without a background are already a virtue, because now some manufacturers still manage to release speakers that "noise" at rest.
