The sound is actually pretty good but one of the "bad" features of these speakers is the headphone jack. whenever headohones are plugged into the speakers, it pops out, I've tried a variety of different brands of headphones and not one jack will stay in place.
This set of speakers was purchased for the family computer, where a lot of games are played, kids like to hear the sounds when playing a game but it's rather irriatiating for everyone else in the room; having a headphones is a must but not when using these speakers.
As far as the sound goes, they do sound really good, not tinny at all. The sound has a very rich tone to it but the headphone jack issue is a bog one. I returned it twice to the store and the issue was with both sets.
