The Apple Pro Speakers are a set of computer speakers designed for use with your Apple lap top or desktop. The speakers are self powered so you don't need an external power amplifier and have an interesting design and shape.
The sound quality of the Apple Pro Speakers is respectable for a set of computer speakers, but isn't anything special in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, they definitely have a listenable sound and all that, but they definitely aren't good enough for anything beyond casual listening purposes. They can get pretty loud and have a good response across the board, but lack clarity at some places and don't provide enough punch. The low end is pretty lacking as there isn't much response there. The dynamics are fine and so is the stereo imaging is okay, but as I stated before, for anything besides listening to music casually the Apple Pro Speakers aren't suitable.
I've been using the Apple Pro Speakers for a few years and don't mind them much for listening to music on as they get the job done. It is nice to have a cheap set of speakers that I can easily move around to whenever I bring my lap top. This being said, the sound quality isn't anything to write home about and you can forget using these for anything related pro audio. The price is probably the best part about these speakers as they are extremely affordable. They have a sleek design and definitely look cool for what that is worth. All in all, I like listening to music on these at home when I don't have anything else to use, but if you are looking for anything more than that you need to look elsewhere, especially if you are looking for a set of speaker to use for mixing and other pro audio uses.

Just a little precision, these are passive speakers, not active (classification Audiofanzine).
And besides they are not the monitoring speakers.
They taient supplied with my iMac, so for home use. Listen to music from iTunes, watch the video ... So everyday use.
The amp is the sound card of the computer.
They are super compact and trs sexy I think. What comes out of the lab is always an Apple rgal eye. Membranes on mine is not black but white is more class I think.
Note that these speakers come from Apple with the help of Harman Kardon.
I would not say whether it is neutral, I do not really. The receiver of the same computer it should not really be. The sound is more oriented hi-fi, but quality of flattering.
In any case I find a super beautiful. They have a lot of potatoes and does not saturate or trs little (unless you push the volume back).
People who come to me believe that the sound comes from my monitor speakers IMMEDIATE vicinity. They fall to the ground when they realize that it is these two little balls that make these wonderful sounds. Including musicians habitus dgueulasse sound on their computer speakers.
I use a dpart since the iMac with either 3 or 4 years. I'm tired, the walk total.
I think they are no longer present, if so, shame. The new iMac possde intgres speaker, I find the sound worse. For laptops do not even speak ... So Apple shows us these speakers of madness!

These speakers are active, as amplified by the small box attached and inseparable. Developed by Apple for the cube
The original model is USB, demanding a strong power, so if not for a cube predict food hub. As some models of sound stik II are also usb.
Another model is special jack that works with iMac G4 calls sunflower also have a special generate power.
These can run on another mac, but in this case it is imperative to add to it a box, iFire Griffin is the only solution. This box allows you to use the firewire power supply for your Mac Pro Speakers of the amp. This case is no longer manufactured we find sometimes cars on the net.
For the quality, they are broadband, which are quality honnte trs, but it's sign Arman / Kardon is therefore a guarantee of good product.
