These stylish crystal USB desktop speakers are described by ThinkGeek as the “smallest audiophile performance stereo USB speakers available for PCs and Notebooks” – a description which comes with this simple explanation:
Each of the speakers is rated at 1 Watt per channel and are compatible with USB 2.0. The acoustically engineered technology is designed to direct sound waves towards an adjacent chamber. As the high frequency sound waves are shorter than the length of the chamber, the phase difference between the in-coming sound wave and the speaker driver diaphragm approaches 0 degrees (in phase). This allows the driver to respond more rapidly to the higher range shorter signals.
Conversely, as the wavelength of the base notes is much longer than the chamber, the phase difference approaches 180 degrees (out of phase). And as the diaphragm is ‘dampened’ for the base notes, it delivers a more pronounced low to mid range sound and thereby improve the cohesive audio experience.
