    I'v been using some $30 cheapo speakers for quite a while now and it's time to upgrade.

    What I'm looking for:
    Around $70-100
    Fairly portable, can't have allot of speakers or really bulky ones
    Decent for music, the main way I'll be using these

    Check out some of the 2.1 creative and logitech speakers. They are cheap and have really good quality! Id say from my mainly aac/mp3 collection of music indistinguishable from my friends bose which cost almost triple the price!.

    I have the harman kardon soundsticks and I love them. I'm a musician, so I'm pretty picky on speakers. I like them because the bass is there, but not boomy. They have a really natural and well defined tone.

    They need to update the look but they do sound good:D

    yeah, they really look like the g3 series computers. Honestly, i like them aesthetically because they stand out like that, but they're not hideous like logitech's current line (see: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16836121012)
    It's all about the sound for me, and I couldn't find anything in the price range that could beat these without sounding boomy or tinny.

    Get the Logitech Z-2300. It can be had for under $100 if you find the right place.

    I have and absolutely love it. It sounds GREAT, accurate sound, good bass, and it can be thunderously loud and still sound amazing.

    You will love these. Go to Best Buy or something and try them out.
