I can get a set of RPM3 Monitors for $63, or a Razer BlackWidow for $56. Currently using a busted ass Keytronic and a pair of RX900's while producing.
what do, OCN?

EDIT: sigh, I didn't realize the port on the main speaker was damaged pretty badly. It probably doesn't affect the sound, and it's out of view, but annoying. Gonna keep them anyway since I don't want to go through the hassle of sending them back.
Ah, I did see $63 for the pair, but I wanted Free Prime 2-day, so I went with the more expensive option.
Got them today and they actually sound great for a small set of speakers.
I can't really tell you how it sounds, but the highs are crisp, and the bottom end is boomy (even more boomy with the bass boost feature.) I am probably going to close off the port and see if I can tighten up the bass a little bit.
I am somewhat annoyed by the volume control, which at very low settings, seem to turn off the tweeter. I guess you'd never play them that low anyway. The volume control can go up to about 90% before they start to distort (using my iPad as an audio source for testing; running Pandora.) I expect them to sound even better with CD's or high-bitrate/lossless sources.
The finish was much nicer than I expected also - all the pictures online made it look like cheap shiny plastic, it's not near that bad. And the things seem solid, no vibrations and they have a decent weight to them.
Here are a couple of quick [big] pictures. I may do a YouTube video in a few days after I get my setup fixed up over the weekend.
