Jembe is rated 3.965811965811966 out of 5 by 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better quality than expected Overview: So, I don't use computer speakers too often. In fact, I bought these a good month or two before using them. However, I needed something loud in the morning to wake me up, so I took these out of the box and pluged them in. Honestly, the only reason I bought these was because they were on an amazing sale (either 50% or 75% off...something like that, but I can't remember). I thought they looked a little cheap on the website, but figured I could use them someday, so I took a chance and bought them. Overall, I am astonished. Cons: Well, only one con. I don't like it's sleep mode. after 5 minutes of inactivity (I'm guessing on the time because the only paper that came with it did not inlude that information), the speakers become inactive. Short sounds do not go through, but will reactiveate the speakers. Honestly, this is just a minor annoyance to me, so I can't really take away a star for it. Pro: Just holding them in my hands, I could feel that these are not cheap speakers, and they really don't look cheap in person. they have a really nice surround sound, and don't distort at higher volumes like many other speakers. they are crystal clear even when I have a fan on maximum. Because I can just turn up the volume a little more, and hear the music, movies, or conversation crystal clear. setup is simple, of course, and allow for headhones to be plugged into the speakers to act as amplifiers. When using headphones, there is no digital hum in the background, and the sound is just as clear as plugging into the audio jack of the computer. Final Note: if you need a computer speaker, definitely buy these. They are worth the price, and have an amazing sound, but these seem to go on sale quite often, so maybe waiting for a sale would be prudent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing performance I bought these speakers two weeks ago and connected to my laptop as a replacement to the existing speakers. What a difference! Unbelievable and quality sound! Very clear and no distortion even at max volume. I can't believe this kind of great performance is coming from these tiny speakers. It looks very attractive as well.

can these be used with a TV

Asked by: salamanda76
The JEMBE speakers can be connected to any device with a line level/headphone output. As long as your TV has a line level/headphone output, you will be good to go.

Is there an on/off switch? Does the power light stay stay on all the time?

Asked by: KathyV
There is no on/off switch on the JEMBE. The power light stays on at all time, although the unit will go into standby whenever there is no audio signal present, and will automatically turn on and start performing when audio is present again.
