Vocals and acoustic instruments sound particularly nice and for most genres of music they give a nice warm sound. The discounted price makes them affordable for people like me who are on a low budget. They would also be useful for people who already have a decent hifi system but want something they can easily move and use around the house. In other words a decent utility speaker that produces a sound pleasing enough for you to enjoy. Even with my untrained ears I can hear the limitations of them but they are still worth every penny. I could list limitations as cons but I feel it's a bit pointless given the price.
