Can you just plug in the USB for sound or does the audio plug have to be inserted as well?

Can I add these speakers to an airport express that is supporting another set of speakers by using only the usb cord?

    I had the iHM77 Speakers which are pretty much the same, but the USB is not used for audio it is used only to recharge the speakers battery. The audio plug is the only way to hear music from whatever device you use it with.

  • The USB is only for power the audio plug must be used for audio.

  • "simply connect to a powered USB port with the USB cable." its under overview of the product.
