How long do these speakers last? (Asking users who had the speakers for over a year)

In other words, are the cables fragile?
I've been looking up reviews of these speakers for a while, and the major complaints seem to be the fact that the cables and wires are too fragile.

Is this correct? If so, how long do they last?

    I've had mine since 2000 and they still work and still sound great. So yeah, they last a while.

  • used mine for about a year now and used a lot for playing world of warcraft and listening to lots of music no problems to report sound is still amazing and not fragile at all in fact the satellite speakers have been knocked over by my cat a few times (lol) and still work fine

  • I've had these speakers since 2006 and mine are still going strong. Had no problems whatsoever.

  • I've had my speakers since the original model came out (they were USB back then). It was more than 10 years ago! Great speakers for the price. I still use them, now with a Mac Pro computer. No cable problems.

  • I've had mine since 2004 and they still sound and look great. They're a great value.
