"*Note: The QSB speakers incorporate their own sound card, so when connected to your Laptop or PC they will appear as a new audio device to the computer. As this is the case the USB QSB speakers cannot be used as stand-alone speakers for an MP3 Players or Mobile Phones etc..."

Use Quidco plus they also have a code for 10% off,, so only £17.55p
As these are USB powered the maximum power they can output will be 5V x 500mA = 2.5Watts. I don't see where the 30Watts can come from?
I'd have been tempted if I could plug them into a TV, not got any use for pc only though. Seems odd not to have a phono in, assume the pc is doing all the work?

I have had these for about a year and they are pretty good. The power comes from capacitance so they build up the power and they really can push the sound out. So as a computer sound in a bedroom they are perfectly ok. The only real limitation is you can't use them as ordinary speakers as they must be connected to a computer/laptop. Worth the money.

Thank you for taking the time to post this info. I was hesitating about buying but I think I'll go for it. Thanks
Mine are nice at low volume, but get a bit of distorted rattle at medium volume

​they'll most likely have a built in transformer, similar to AC powered speakers. Could account for the chunkiness. 30W isn't great anyway.
had a pair for ~2 years.
they were abut the same price then.
they are extremely good quality for the price, work on win 7, ubuntu and chromeos.
they are not loud - I think there is a big capacitor in one unit (heavy) that may provide a 30w peak.
some have noted that they dont work too well on some usb hubs. this may be if they dont supply 2.5A.

It uses 2.5 watts but produces 30 watts? Magic.
i have these very good clear sound for a laptop external speakers ...but not portable

​USB powered speakers can provide in excess of 30W. suggest you research a little before describing it as magic. it's physics.
go for logitech z323 for the same price on amazon, much better.

I got a pair SoundScience QSB from Advanced MP3 player, two years ago.

Upon delivery the connection on one of the speaker was loose, only one speaker has sound. For the other one to have sound, I have to physically push the cable really tight in and hold it.

I contact MP3 advance player, they cancelled my account.

Shocking service.

I still kept the broken speakers just to show as prove and remind myself how bad is Advanced MP3 Player.

You do not want to deal with those guys.

This product may be ok if they are not faulty.

I cannot vouch for it as I do not have a working one. I think they are not very loud during my short test, and also not much bass.

For some reason, from time to time, this speak come up, and often it is from Advanced MP3 player.

On the other hand, a lot of Advanced MP3 player deals are just about this speaker.

USB 2.0 max output is 2.5 watts. Link me to some explanation as to how 2.5 watts can turn into 30 watts with just a single USB output.

Their patented technology. They've recently inputted it into amplifier modules that run off a battery too, for portable speakers. Brilliant actually. I'd suggest contacting the company if you want to find out more, they would probably be in a better position than I am to help you understand.
