If it turned out they didn't, for whatever reason, then the purchase
of a bus-power only audio device would be a disappointment.

In both Gentoo and Win 7 I have hooked up all 4 external USB hard
drives that I own to the ports and none of them worked. Using your
info about power that implies that none of these drives can be powered
from the bus.
As an interesting point, this machine (Asus G73JW) also has a USB 3.0
port which is supposedly capable of replacing eSATA one of these days.
