Novelty speakers alway give me a good laugh, but unfortunately, they don't sound as funny/great as they look. I guess that is the general rule of thumb, and the Fred 500XL PC Speakers fare no differently. What you get is a pair of blown-up iPod white earbuds that are meant to hook up to your MP3 player or PC. It comes with an integrated amplifier with 3-way power for a slightly more heavyweight sound, but it definitely won't blow you away like those dedicated computer sound systems from the likes of Klipsch and Logitech. The Fred 500XL PC speakers can be powered via batteries or USB, and will retail for $36.99.
