They arrived as advertised and were charged and ready to go right out of the box. While the sound quality from my iPhone was initially more than a bit muddy, adjusting the equalizer settings to my taste helped quite a bit. They're small speakers, so they won't exactly shake down the house, but for the price, they're pretty decent. I do love the magnetic bottoms that link them together for portability, and the retractable speaker cord. One less tangled cord to wrestle with. Yay!
I use this thing camping. It's not going to blow you away but it is great for what it is. It is small and clear. I put them in my camping pot for extra forward gain. The bass isn't going to tear panties off but it at least you can dance them off.
