    These speakers are real bASS kickers. Solid construction, heavy and the sound is awesome. I plugged these into my Bose Wave Radio through the earphone jack. They sound better that the Bose speakers.

    These small speakers sound fantastic. With the built in DAC, AUX inupt, and sub out, you can really put together a nice little system. Minus one star because the lows simply arent there - highly suggest pairing these with a sub if you'd like your audio to have a more full sound.

    I bought these to replace a 2.1 Altec Lansing speaker system. These are in a totally different league. The bass while not chest pounding is quite satisfying especially considering the size of the speakers. All in all, a great buy

    Very sound quality. Though, I will want to buy the separate woofer when I can afford it. Missing lower mids and bass. Very clean uppers and mids! Been into playing and recording music for two decades and these are pro level.

    The speakers came with a 3.5 cable jack to hook up directly into a laptop/pc. Has a USB connection as well but not sure if the sound would be better through it or not. If not, I will stick with the 3.5 as it has a smaller footprint overall. Very happy with this purchase. Won't find a better set of 2.0 desktop speakers at this price.

    Great computer speakers with a balanced sound

    I have never bought speakers without actually hearing them first. Research can only take you so far when there are so many brands that are not represented at major retailers. I had been looking at the Kanto speakers along with several other brands in my search for new computer speakers. I listen to the majority of my music through my computer these days. Mostly streaming and hi res through an Audioquest Dragonfly (I recommend one of those to anyone who loves digital music). I finally took the plunge with the Kanto YU2 when I had a nice reward certificate come my way! The YU2's fit my desk nicely which was why I picked them instead of one of the larger versions. I am extremely pleased with the sound of these little speakers. The mids and highs are lively and striking, especially vocals. The bass is strong and balanced with the smooth midrange and extends much further than I was expecting. That being said, I will definitely be getting a matching Kanto sub soon as I like more bass than these put out. I tried some Coldplay and the bass sounded a bit weak with the track Magic, which has a low bass guitar intro and pounding bass drum. I then switched to Motograter and their track Down and the bass coming out sounded much deeper and resonant. Another track, Wallace, from the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack produced amazing results. The separation and extension from high to low was exquisite and alive! It just proves that recordings differ greatly as well as our expectations. I had some old Altec Lansing speakers with a sub before these and the Kanto's produce similar results with no sub. If you're a huge bass head you will be disappointed with these speakers by themselves and will need the sub. If you want smaller speakers at a great price that are tuneful and well balanced, these Kanto YU2's are a surefire success. I will update after I get the Sub 6 to note the difference.
