What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Yamaha NX-50 USB, Wired
  • Beautiful little speakers. Paired with a Chromecast Audio for an almost flawless musical experience.
  • The bass is pretty good considering the size of the speakers, but many would prefer a subwoofer to supplement the bass. Build quality seems to be very good.
  • Oh yeah, and they have a relatively compact size and efficiently planned shape.
  • Just the right size. Seriously well made casings. Would spend the money again without hesitation.
  • Very well made and considering their small size, puts out a very good sound.

What customers say about "Audio"
Yamaha NX-50 USB, Wired
  • I own speaker that cost a lot more (100x more!), and they sound better than these...but that is not particularly surprising. These sound great for the price, they sound great outright.
  • Very high performance for a pair of pc speaker. The basses are very low and very defined midrange.
  • Amazing, "colorful" and lively sounding. Expecially when playing things like jazz, classical, or any songs that don't have ridiculously low bass notes.
  • Great sound from small speakers. Replaced my old Altec-Lansing set with a subwoofer.
  • They sound excellent at the levels at which I use them. Not sure how well they would sound when cranked all the way up, as I have yet to try it.

What customers say about "Features"
Yamaha NX-50 USB, Wired
  • I like the "Sleep" feature where they power up/down automatically. I am not sure actually how much electricity is saved by this, but I feel good about it at least.
  • Excellent set of desk speakers with headphone jack on the front. Great sound and plenty of volume. Highly recommended
  • But the overall sound is outstanding and if you need a pair of very good hi-fi speakers for your pc/tablet/smartphone, these are for you, but do not use it to replace a good high-end sound system.
  • They do have a wierd variable loudness, built in, which I didn't like the sound of to start with (more loudness at lower speaker volume, can't turn it off) but in practice I don't mind it
  • Includes all necessary cabling and adapters for basic connection to a PC sound card.
