These speakers were a low-end budget for having music in my garage. While I can't really give feedback on how they sound in a small office, I can give feedback on how they sound in a larger open room. I use these speakers when I am riding my bike on my rollers (pretty loud) and I am able to hear voices fairly clear on the movies I watch, and the bass comes through pretty well. There is no bass adjustment, so what you get is what you hear, and there is no treble adjustment either. The only knobs on this thing are a power switch, and a volume dial. The left speaker is fully connected to the right speaker (unable to detach), and is only about 3 feet long. However, the cord that comes with it to plug in your mp3 player, computer, etc., is plenty long. I have most of it wrapped up so it is not getting ruined on my garage floor. All in all, for the price, I would recommend this as a simple solution for better bass and slightly more quality sound than what the computer has to offer. This does plug into the wall for power, not the computer.
