When we opened the box we were quite pleased with the looks of the Neso 4s which are based around a rain drop, though they are a tad light and plasticy. the rest of the contents were pretty basic, but lets face it the only thing you need are the speakers!
The speakers use USB for power and then a 3.5mm port for the sound, which is good or bad depending on how you look at it, you are restricted to a device with USB, but at the same time you didn't have to faff around with another plug. Alternatively some speakers use USB for everything, which is convenient for a laptop but not so convenient if you want to use you iPod or whatever.
The sound quality of the sound quality of the speakers was a little tinny and certainly lacking base, they also didn't go very loud. However for £15 you will always have questionable sound quality and for the price these speakers are a great upgrade for a laptop.
For occasional use, and mainly for laptops these are great speakers, however if you want some speakers for your desktop and have a bit more money we would suggest something with a little more oomph and possibly 2.1 for example the Neso 4 Avante Garde 26Watt 2.1ch Speakers.
Thanks to Bitmore for providing the speakers to review.
