Summary: Now that my 121s have finally died, I want to tell you about my experience with them. I inherited these from my brother after he had used them on his home recording studio for about 2 years, so they had alot of use and abuse by the time I got them. One of the satellites died soon after I got them, but the other two still worked and they still sounded awesome - better than many other more expensive speakers I listened to when I was looking at buying new ones, even in...
Summary: Needed cheap speakers for my son's hand me down PC. He's playing kid games - Reader Rabbit, Jump Start, Backyard Sports- that sort of thing. Also, occasionally watching a DVD on the PC (Hey I grew up with a 8 inch TV. He can sure watch a movie on a 17" monitor). These work fine for this. Do you need high fidelity surround sound for your music and heavy duty gaming? Skip these.
Summary: Well, I needed a cheap set of speakers for my lappy, and found these at office depot for 10 bucks. I use them for online broadcasts and some music, every once in a while. They are soooo not worth 30 bucks, but for 10 I am keeping them. The bass is really hard to get right, it muffles some songs and is non-existant on others. Without the bass on, the other speakers are not worth listening to.
Summary: These are speakers for people who just like to listen to music and is not all caught up in the bass and trebles and all the technical stuff. They have good clarity, but really not much bass. Which is ok for computer speakers, especially if you already have a stereo system or home theater system in your home. For 22 dollars,these speakers are a great deal and I recommend these, unless you want to pay the little extra money to get the 221's.
Summary: Bought these two days ago and was very dissapointed. Very poor bass.....trebles too high and no mid range at all. Do not even sound good down low. Do yourself a favour and spend the extra cash on the 2100's. I did after returning them and was much happier indeed.
