Great floating speakers don't float, aren't great

Wow, look at these speakers! They're totally floating in mid-air! How do they do that? Oh, I see, there's a string holding them up. If you're looking at them from any angle other than straight on and level, that's pretty clear. Well, that kind of takes some of the fun out of it, doesn't it?

Also taking fun out of these speakers is the fact that they have a measly 1.7 watts of power, which should make them sound like a telephone playing music from the bottom of a fish tank. All this, and they still have the audacity to charge $200 for these things? I'll spend $200 on good speakers and hang them from a pole with string myself, thank you very much.
