Speedlink Event USB 2 – They are actually good.

Husband very pleased with the speakers.

Very good speakers fit the job.

Good sound and turns off with computer. Here are the specifications for the Speedlink Event USB 2:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • 2.0 speaker set that’s perfect for any desktop
  • USB-powered – no AC adapter required
  • Slimline design: the perfect addition for flat-screen monitors
  • Direct headphone volume control on speaker set
  • 3.5mm jack plug for connecting to a PC or MP3 player

We bought these speakers to replace the same type we had before, however, the sound quality is much richer. Very easy to install as the audio end of the cable goes into the back of the pc and the other fits into a usb point, simple and quick, up and running in no time.

Two very light weight speakers, connecting via usb and colour coded sound output jack around the back of the computer. The length of the cables are enough to reach computers that are on a different level to the monitor. There is nothing behind the decorative mesh, so they wouldn’t be able to withstand a clumsy strike. Very pleased and for the price you really cannot complain.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great sound quality and features
  • Great speaker, fantastic quality sound and good value.
  • Weather itdvd’s or youtube your wanting good high quality sound from and the use to listen

Look and feel very cheap when opened, but i suppose they are cheap. Sound is actually, surprisingly, amazingly, good.

Weather itdvd’s or youtube your wanting good high quality sound from and the use to listen to it yourself or with freinds these are a well priced excellent pair of speakers headphone socket volume control and usb powered. If you just want a pair of speakers and don’t need a subwoofer and all the whistles then these are great and the don’t whistle either.

Good speaker good bass on them as well well worth the money i fact i think these are a bit under valued could be worth more.

They sound, er, okay at best, and due to being usb powered, only have limited amplification. However, being usb powered, they switch on with the kids computer (so no more leaving speakers switched on overnight), and they don’t look unattractive in design. The headphone jack is a nice touch. For the price and the application, these are perfect.

My son had me purchase these for his new computer monitor, work well, sound isn’t as clear as i’d have liked but for the price they are amazing, highly recommended.

I have been working with bad speakers for several years & now i have these new speakers , my world has changed. They are cheap, but they are fantastic & i am thrilled with them and recommend then to everybody.

I can’t find an issue with these speakers, they are perfect size, have an aux out port and the quality is very good for the price.

Ok for me just help me hear the computer better. No what we would call tinny but can be adjusted on themedia player anyway.

Great sound quality and just had to plug it in to the speaker 3. 5mm jack and a usb port on my computer and it works a treat. Of course the sound quality isn’t as good as more expensive models, but it is actually very goodit has a headphone socket in the speaker so you can plug your headset into this directly rather than unplugging the speakers and plugging your headphones into the socket on the computer which is very useful. With mine, when i turn my computer off the speakers turn off as well, so it saves electricity rather than having them plugged into the mains and on 24/7. Didn’t need to install any drivers or anything – the usb is strictly for the power only so you don’t need a driver at all.

Last well and are on a lot at my sewing school.

Worked well to start with, but now after six months, the on/off button does not work properly, or when they do work, will suddenly switch off. Thought i might have got at least a year out of them for the price.

I love how the lack of a mains transformer in one, or plugged into one of them improves the sound. They work well with a headset too.

Received product less than 24hrs after placing order, top marks for efficiency. Product excellent, as required, recommend buying.

Great speakers, i have them on my work desk in the office. I need to mind the volume as it turns up very loud. All in all great value for your money.

I actually bought two of these. They offer great sound quality. You just had to plug it in to the speaker 3. 5mm jack and a usb port on my computer and it works a treat. I have been using them for skype calls as well as listening to music and online videos. It has a headphone socket in the speaker so you can plug your headset into this directly rather than unplugging the speakers and plugging your headphones into the socket on the computer which is very useful. One good advantage is that when i turn my computer off the speakers turn off as well, so it saves electricity rather than having them plugged into the mains and on constantly. There is no need to install any drivers/ software or anything – the usb is strictly for the power only so you don’t need a driver at all. Works straight out the box and is good old plug and play.

    On a pension, so had to save what some people would think as very little, but to me is a lot. Less than 2 months later and they cut out constantly. There is also no way to get a refund so i am out of pocket and out of my music.

    Rubbish, rubbish, rubbish – packed up after 3 months – keep turning off. I wish i could find out how to return them as i am protected from law.

    For something so cheap i expected the sound to be average at best, and thats exactly what i got, no bass at all, mostly high and a muddy middle, but they will do for most people just wanting a pair of speakers that are fairly loud and well packaged.

    The sound quality isn’t all that brilliant — a but plastic/tinny — but it’s about what you’d expect for the price. The main problem with these speakers is the on/off button. The sound keeps vanishing — simply because the button has popped out yet again and they’ve switched off.

      • Bought these for my gaming monitor which has woeful speakers for when i’m just chilling out and watching stuff on youtube or netflix when i don’t want my headset on. Quality is surprisingly good, plenty of bass build quality is good. They are quite light though and do fall over with the lightest taps. Stuck some double sided tape under them onto my desk to solve this.

    Horrible cheap speakers, bordering on the ‘not fit for purpose’muffled fuzzy sound. Seriously terrible piece of kit, don’t waste your time or money.

    The on/off button stopped working after less than 30 pushes, while the speakers were practically brand new. Now when i press the button the speakers switch on momentarily, but once i take my finger off it they switch off again. I have to try maybe 10 times before i can get the button to stay pressed. If this isn’t bad quality, then i don’t know what is.

    • At this price, you are improving the monitors sound. Don’t buy these thinking you can rock a night club, or a bedsit.

    Upon connecting these up i could immediately hear a nasty crackle coming from the left speaker. Unfortunately due to this crackle i have no good feedback to give, waste of money.
