Summary: It should be noted that I picked these up on sale for 30$. At first I didn't think much of them and contemplated returning them cause I was comparing music that I always listen on my pioneer headset. But after a few days and comparing them with the Logitech LS21, I can say they can produce a wider frequency range and audio sounds a bit cleaner. The bass is not great but the ports try really hard to give a bit of bass.
Summary: This is a great set of desktop or Laptop speakers for home desk. Excellent sound quality from them, and very solid construction. Highly recommend to purchase at the sale price while you still can. I would even go so far to say that they would be worth the full price if you don't want the 2.1 sub woofer bass or the 5.1 systems. These are great for apartments!
Pros: Fantastic construction, very heavy duty. I love the wood finish! really great sound quality as well
Summary: A good example of how there are always compromises in low-end audio. For $40 sale these are pretty appealing in the target market. First off, the build quality is very, very good. Too good. Solid volume pot, with solid and weighted cabinetry. Angled design and vinyl finish is attractive. Unfortunately, the "horn port" bleeds out copious amounts of mid-range, making the already high-mid challenged drivers more ragged.
Pros: Inexpensive, ok bass response, very nice build quality
Summary: I bought a set of these after much deliberation with its aesthetic qualities being the deciding factor for me. The lead connecting the speakers is long, so if one were to place them at opposite ends of a bookshelf then it is possible to do so. Whether the speakers can functionally act as bookends is debatable.
Summary: I ordered these speakers on Saturday, with the free delivery option, and they arrived two days later on Monday, so thumbs up there! The speakers look very nice and are able to produce a good volume - more than enough for just me listening in my uni room on my own, or for parties here. With the EQ setting set to base on my phone, the base output is excellent.
Summary: I really like these speakers. The look good, they have a very nice, rich sound to them. As another reviewer said, they seem to have very loud mid tones, so they sound quite mushy with not much treble crispness when first out of the box. So I change the settings on the graphic equaliser to suppress the mid tones and bring out the treble and the now sound great. Crisp, mellow mids and base.
Summary: Can't argue with the price on these speaker. They look great and have a solid build. The Bass is very good considering the price. The treble/mids sound like they get lost in bass and loses some clarity and can sound a little bit muddy, but that's just me being really picky. Overall very happy with the build, bass and style for this price.
Summary: I play guitar in a rock band and like having music around the house. These speakers are great, I've got 4 sets of them. Great sound - loud enough for rocking out to and look decent enough for my wife not to mind.
