Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SET OF SPEAKERS!. THE AUTO OFF FEATURE WORKS Purchased these speakers black Friday, and I truly wished I picked up 2 of them for the price I got it for!($20). These speakers are connected to my PC, and the AUTO OFF FEATURE WORKS great!. This is the main reason I am leaving my review as I do not usually review products I purchase. My PC picks up when sound is playing and turns them off when it isn't. I see many reviews of how annoying this feature is. However, I have yet to encounter them to turn off while sound is playing. I game on my PC a lot and there are times where what ever I am playing is low in sound but never does the speakers turn off. I highly recommend this speakers, and will be keeping an eye out for these to go down again so I can pick up another pair!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Computer speaks for the Buck! I bought mine about 3 months ago, used them for hooking up to my laptop to play music.--more than fabulous! Hooking up to laptop for movies, great for personal, not home theatre--but for $16?!! Sounds are rich, not staticky, I don't know all of the "technical" sound bass/treble verbage, but I can tell you that it sounds fabulous. I've used other speakers, and most of them are garbage. But if JBL puts their name on something, it better be good, or it shouldn't be on the market. For about $16, it's a deal that you won't regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous sound and value for your dollar Wow, a tremendous pair of computer speakers that are well built, sound great and carry the JBL name. I listen to live concerts on these, video blogs and radio stations. At the very high volumes, low background levels or anything in-between, these speakers always sound great, well balanced, cohesive and composed. These speakers are very transparent and they simply get out of the way when listening to music. They simply leave you with just the artist and you in the room. You completely forget you are listening to a $50 pair of speakers. It's amazing that you can get such awesome sound for so little money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE These Speakers I'm not sure why some people are having issues - my speakers don't turn off unless there's no sound or the Master volume on my computer is set extremely low, like on 1. The trick is to keep your PC's Master volume turned up. Speakers are very reliable at turning off when I'm not using them and turning on when I do use them. Very pleased with their function. And as always, they have that great JBL sound. . . . HK's customer service needs a LOT of work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sounding speakers... I bought these speakers in December 2015. I have been extremely impressed with the sound quality, especially given what these speakers are (i.e. small speakers meant for computers). Their tonal quality and imaging is highly notable... Previous computer speakers I have owned don't begin to compare to the sound quality of these Jembe speakers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from small speakers pack a loud punch They offer crystal clear sound particularly at the high range. It means you can hear throbbing bass in trance music. best value for your $$$

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auto Power Off - Annoying - If no fix, I'm returni I love the speakers... when they actually are working. But the speakers have an 'auto-off'/power save mode that kicks in apparently at random. If the speakers detect there's no sound coming from them, they go into power save. Unfortunately, they do this even when there is actually sound playing. This makes the product very irritating and essentially useless. Hopefully JBL is monitoring these reviews and can provide a fix. If I can't get this fixed soon, I'm returning and spending my money somewhere else.

How do you turn off the auto-shutoff feature?

Asked by: RiverRick
Unfortunately you cannot turn of the auto-shutoff feature as the JBL Jembe is in compliance with the European Union energy legislation. It will enter into sleep mode (networked standby) after 10 minutes without operation, after which it can be re-activated when audio is present.

Hi. I've only had these speakers for a few months and one speaker no longer emits any sound. If I position the wire at a certain angle the sound will sometimes return..but that's only if I hold it like that with my finger. Please tell me how to fix this..
