    Works well when plugged directly into the computer. Static if plugged into Dell monitor. Bypasses PC sound card., March 20, 2015

    For what these are, they’re good. The sound quality is as decent as you can expect from 1″ tall speakers. Some considerations, though….

    First, they’re designed to be mounted on a Dell monitor. If you don’t have a Dell monitor, consider getting something else. Second, these act as their own “sound device” on your computer. If you have a sound card, this bypasses it. The volume control is non-physical, meaning that that turning the volume knob is the same as adjusting the volume slider on the computer. You can watch the volume level on the computer move as you turn the wheel on the speaker. This is different from most PC speakers, where the volume can be adjusted independent of the computer. This also means that if you have a $100 sound card in the computer, and go with these speakers, you’re not going to be using the $100 sound card at all. You do not even need a sound card in your computer to use these speakers.

    The speakers come with a very short USB cord that’s meant to plug into a Dell monitor with a built-in USB hub. When we did this (and this is why I’m knocking off a star, even though it’s not really the fault of the speaker) there was a large amount of static, crackling, and popping coming from the speakers. This happened on multiple computers and multiple monitors. We found that this was due to the fact that the powered USB hub in the Dell monitor wasn’t producing “clean” DC power. Both the power and sound signal come to the speakers through USB. The hub in the Dell monitor is powered, and the AC to DC converter must not be the best quality. As a result, we had to use a USB extension to plug these directly into a USB port on the PC. This kind of defeats the purpose of the short, stubby USB cable that the speaker comes with.

    I tried using set of headphones with these that also included a microphone (for a cel phone). The headphone jack on these speakers did not like that. The sound was terrible. I found that if I pull out the headphone jack slightly, the electrical connections lines up and the sound comes out better. If you’re using regular headphones, this will likely not be an issue.

    All in all these sound fine, but are very susceptible to changes in DC source voltage, which results in static and hissing. There are a couple of posts on the Dell forum sites with people complaining that these speakers don’t work at all, or have static. This may be due to the same issue we experiences with the USB hub in the monitor.

    A Decent Speaker at a Decent Price, But Read Before you Buy, May 10, 2014

    This review is from: Dell AC511 USB Wired SoundBar (Personal Computers)
    I gave it 4 stars for two reasons: (1) I had to go buy a 6′ USB extension cable to plug the short USB pigtail into my computer (my E2414H Dell monitor is nice but pretty basic – no USB ports) and that cost nearly as much as I paid for the speaker; and (2) the speaker just fits and works like it’s supposed to, with acceptable sound quality, nothing spectacular. To the seller’s credit, it is in new condition, as advertised, and I’m not at all disappointed I bought it. It looks like it belongs on the monitor. If you have a more sophisticated monitor with USB I/O ports and have a USB device cable laying around, it’ll be a better deal for you than it turned out to be for me, but like I said, I’m not complaining.

    I probably should explain, the speaker has a short USB cable attached that is designed to plug into the back of the monitor, and then a regular USB device cable is supposed to run from the ports under the monitor to the computer. The speaker doesn’t (or at least mine didn’t) come with that device cable, only the pigtail, and my monitor had no USB I/O ports, hence the need for the extension.

    Audio jack is almost unusable. USB to Mac is annoying. Otherwise OKAY product., September 1, 2015

    For less than $25, this speaker “does the job” but not particularly well. First, 2 major complaints that lower this from a 5 star to a 3 star review.

    1) The audio jack on the speaker isn’t just terrible, but complete unusable on 2 out of 3 headphone I tested. I tested first with my Beats Solo 2 and got unusably bad audio. Next I tested Apple headphones that come standard with an iPhone and got the same result. Oddly enough, though my $150 and $20 headphones did not work, the $6 Panasonic RPHJE120V In-Ear Headphone, Violet headphones worked fine. WHAT?!? I tested using audio from iTunes, Youtube, and Amazon Instant video.

    2) On my MBPr (2013, 15”), you MUST connect the usb cable on the sound bar directly to the computer, not the monitor. If you want to connect the soundbar to your monitor instead, you will then need to purchase an additional cable to connect one of your monitor’s USB ports to one of your computer’s USB ports. The soundbar I purchased new did not come with this additional cable, so if the cable connected to the soundbar is too short to reach your computer you’ll have to buy either a cable extender for it or buy a whole other cable. Very inconvenient.

    Now, the sound of the soundbar itself is pretty decent, though not terribly loud even when maxed out. Certainly better than my closed laptop speakers. Sound feels pretty rich for the price. If you have a Dell monitor and limited desk space, it is also very convenient to have the speaker physically attached to the monitor. Honestly, if I had more desk space, this speaker would probably not be worth it, but considering I have no room for additional peripherals and not a lot of money to spend, I’m going to keep it.

    BOTTOM LINE: If you are on a budget, have a compatible Dell monitor, and don’t have much desk space, these speakers are a decent choice. And if you’re buying for the audio jack, don’t bother; it isn’t even functional on some very common headphones, but for whatever reason, my $6 cheap pair work fine.
