  • "Coolness Factor"
  • Battery Life
  • Build Quality
  • Loudness
  • Portability

Bought these small speakers for a small TV that had very poor speakers. They seem to work only intermittently so they come and go. I have tried working with the connections but they still work on and off.

Pros: small and good sound when working

Cons: performance is intermittent - threw away all packaging or I might return them.
