    Really Impressive USB speakers


    I just tried out a set of USB-only speakers on my laptop and was really impressed that they actually worked. I don't really get it but somehow (after a restart unfortunately), these speakers just go in and take over the sound system. They do not use the on-board AC97 hardware. They have only one plug, a USB plug, for both power and audio. It must do some kind of really low-level tinkering because there are no drivers or anything, and it works under linux too.

    Anybody know how these work? I'm pretty impressed.

    To be honest, their output is a little weak. Especially for watching movies. Talking voices don't really carry too well. Music sounds good but I had to hold the speakers close to me just to watch a DVD (which is why I bought them in the first place . But anyway, it's still very cool and I'm still impressed.

    here's their site:

    They were fairly cheap on eBay. Especially compared to USB speakers (w/ 1/8" stereo mini-jack connection) I've seen at retailers. Maybe that's why they're low power.
