"Great Sound, Good Price, Small Footprint"

Overall: 4.5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
I am having to do more in my small workspace, so I was looking for a pair of monitors that would free up some space but still have a decent sound. These have met the mark very well. I haven't used the Bluetooth connectivity as yet, but I like having it if the need should arise.
