Summary: These speakers are very treble heavy, and cymbals have a tin sound to them. Mids and lows are fantastically balanced, but it would be nice if the two subwoofers packed more oomph. They definitely require a subwoofer to sound amazing, but without one, they still sound pretty good.
Summary: I ordered a pair of ES80s and I was so happy with them I decided to go for a pair of ES90s. I ordered them late night on 1/11 and received them late morning on 1/15. The ES90s are well built, very solid, look great and I could not be more pleased with the way they sound.
Summary: They sound great! They are JBL and so are the rest of my speakers in the home theatre. Like many others, I'm not rich and this is the best I can afford so the deep discount was a no brainer. I replaced a couple of Sony 12 inch so yes...
Excerpt: I just got two of these for my 7.1 home theater system. I've used them for about a week and they sound perfect. They suck up power though so your gonna need a powerful amp to go along with it. It makes any movie I watch come to life with excellent highs, mids, and lows.
Excerpt: I have been using these speakers for almost a year, and have only been happier with speakers when I bought my ADS L710's in 1974. The whole room rocks with a sub woofer that makes actions movies better at home than most Theaters.
Summary: I don't usually write reviews but this speaker is absolutely fantastic. Bought two of these es90bk for my dad and boy, do I not have any regret. He used this for his karaoke system since he blew out my audiophiles while accidentally turning the amp up so high.
