Summary: Been living with them for a week now. While they have some great pluses - fantastic range, just amazing bass for their size, and a really stunning look, I was a little disappointed with them. I found the same problems that some other people have noted, the bass is rather boomy and the treble kind of harsh. Well, just minutes ago I discovered something. The speakers sit on my desk, about three feet apart and I had them angled in, so I was directly on axis to the tweeters.
Summary: This is now the second set of these speakers I have purchased. If you want big base sound with a small footprint, and price, these are what you want. If you have an equalizer in use with these, you'll love it.
Summary: I wasn't sure what to expect after reading the reviews that these speakers were overkill on the bass, but I'm more than pleased with them. I connected them without tweaking any EQ settings on my Windows 7 desktop and they sound amazing! The highs are very clear and the bass is strong but not overpowering. The only downside is they're fingerprint magnets because of the glossy black finish, but that's a very minor drawback for me.
Summary: I consider myself to be a quasi audiophile. Quasi as I'm realistic about what I can afford but am not satisfied with poor sound quality. I think a lot of folks could care less- but if you are one of those folks who can genuinely tell the difference between a 320 mp3 and Flac and spend a lot of time and get a lot of enjoyment out of your music- these speakers are worth overlooking the questionable negative reviews.
Summary: this product has been great to me. i have had it for 2 years and they are still kicking hard. i have travel a lot and wanted speakers that were sturdy with good sound and some bass. i made a great investment. i have put them in my luggage for very long trips and not one crack. i max them out on volume quite often and they still sound the same after the abuse and time. you can turn them off and on from the speakers themselves and also control the volume.
Summary: I have used these speakers for my desktop computer for over two years now, and I have to say, they work great. Overall, I don't see any problems with the speakers. Even though the bass speaker is in a closed area and there is no room for it breathing, it still works amazingly well, and does not overheat easily, so my surprise. You can crank these to the max for a long time, and it simply won't overheat. For the sound quality, I could not be happier.
