TL;DR: If you are on a budget, but still want some reaonable quality get these (or the bluetooth version of these for practical reasons; see weaknesses for more info). Size: they are small and barely take up any room Build quality: they feel solid when you hold them, doesn't feel like cheap plastic Aesthetics: between these and the white version, they should compliment just about any setup with their simplistic minimalist appeal, unless you you need everything to be rgb. Some of you might be put off by the copper center, honestly, I think its a touch of personality that compliments the expose heat sinks on my rtx 2070. I orringinaly thought they were wood, but they look more like brass or copper colour mettal. the outside is mostly matte, and its just the front face that has a glossy finish, not the end of the world. Sound: better than anything Ive had, and in some use cases better than my steelSeries Arctis 7
For what they cost, there are no weaknesses. only possible weaknes is for those with limit usb ports, these draw their power from the usb 2.0. Just get a usb extention if that's the case. Sounds like you would need one anyways. Not exactly cable management friendly. if you are worried about that the bluetooth versions are only $10 more I think. that being said the way I routed my cables it looks clean. you're going to be limited by how far apart you can place them from each other. not sure the lenght exactly, but if I had to guess you have about 40-50 inches of slack so should be fine for monitors within the balparck of 32". I don't consider these weaknesses though because they have the bluetooth version that will fix that.
If you buy these, and they don't stand up to your $1000 sound quality expectaions, then you only lost $30 and you had no business getting these with such deep pockets. If $30 is all you wish to spend while getting some more than reasonable quality, look no further. In this market niche, I think creative labs have defeated logitec.

I bought these to use in my home office, primarily for conference calls, listening to the news on my PC and maybe some YouTube. I have a high quality set of Sennheiser HD555's, so I usually use those for gaming, but I have played a few games on these speakers as well, such as Doom Eternal, Minecraft and Farcry 5.
I wish Creative Labs had a slightly louder version with the same design, but these are good.
I expected these would be $45-50 crap speakers, but I am actually fairly impressed at the quality. There are decently loud (you wont rock the house, but you will fill a room) and they sound VERY clear and not distorted, even cranked up. They also don't take up a lot of space, so mine are sitting below my monitors. If you need a good set of cheaper speakers that don't suck, these are a buy in my book. Excellent.
