I've had a set a couple of years, when you could only get the silver finish in the UK, and they were £100 + !!
I think initially they were touted as an upmarket set for an iPod but then repositioned as an after purchase for desktops/laptops.
I must admit I was swayed by the design as much as the sound quality. With my black Sony LCD they look cool (am I sad or what), although if the glossy black had been available at the time I'd have probably gone for them.
I think sound quality is superb and if a 2.1 set up is what you want I'd recommend them unreservedly. You can adjust bass & treble from the subwoofer and volume from the right satellite, although I tend to use Windows volume or my keyboard vol control.
With the reduction in price I'd say go for it and enjoy !
