This made our family very happy and is giving our home an awesome sound for all that have ears to hear. We love to play our music on the sound sticks streaming live video, podcasts, Pandora internet radio, U Tube, Watching movies online, or broadcast over the web. We are music fanatics and will not settle for a quiet time when we party we jam for at least 3-4 days. The appearance of this product is right there with Apple Macintosh Technology and looks like the future. The power is tremendous from our MacBook Pro or the iMac desktop these appeal to the eye as well as to your eardrum. The sound quality is run through the microphone jack and is more trusted by my family with our children. We can enjoy loud clear-cut crisp mastered music with an open end bass tube from the future and is relayed with a knob to rotate clockwise for more bass. I also enjoy that a purple/indigo light allows you to be in ambiance at the power of the bass compartment. This is a clear plastic tube that looks like a jelly fish and houses a "5 woofer that will shake the house. The best part of the sound sticks are the "6 inch tubular devices that house 4 individual speakers that will rock and are clearly hard-wired and have new technology and are silver and purple indigo in color, not too bright and tacky. The sound sticks will meet all your needs and will go the distance. I need to mention that there are two sticks containing the 4 individual speakers, and to adjust the volume there is a sensor on one of the sticks with plus or minus. There are also bass technology air flow on both the sound sticks and the bass cannon all are included. Very easy to fit on your desk or anywhere small in size.
