i am using creative inspire 2.1 at home.. Apart from an irritating loose contact that stops music from one of the speakers (I can tap on the volume control to get it back in order), it has pretty good output for the price ( I think I paid abt 2.5K)..

Ya ur right rehan.

Headphones are ones with large speakers that are kept on the ears supported by a band either over the head or around the head
they are of 2 main types -
1. open air(better sound) and
2. closed air(louder).

Prob i've heard of a dyanamic version also but not sure

Earphones/buds are those which fit in the ear.
They also have 2 types.
1. Ones that are outside the ear canal supported by ur ear frame and
2. the other are isolators/in-ear that are stuffed in and supported by ur ear canal.

I jst didnt think anyone wud know the difference. So didnt go into the details . Good catch though

I got the 6021. not great. bass is boomy even at low levels. I hear the 5021 is better though.

yeah navin the mx5021 is way better than 6021 thats my personally opinion though cause i like tight bass not the boomy kind(had heard both of them) and if u google for a review the mx5021 has been praised well

can the 5021 be wall mounted like the 6021?

some reviews rated the 6021 higher than the 5021. Funny. so much for reviews.

Logitech X-230 2.1 speakers. That's some serious bass right there. Even at the highest volume, the sound quality is crystal clear.
My precious.
