Corsair SP2500 2.1 PC Speaker System Review
3 December 2012
Conclusion: The speaker market is severely flooded when it comes to PC systems, but its mainly at the lower-end of the scale and while these have their place for the budget user, they aren’t exactly record breaking and don’t pierce your eardrums as we all want, even if it hurts and makes your nose bleed.
Conclusion: The Corsair SP2500 is priced at Rs. 12,500 plus taxes. For that price you get a speaker system that is well featured and does a good job with movies and games. If the price was a little lower I would have had an easy time recommending these speakers purely since the build quality is definitely a notch above most budget systems and the sound is no doubt very good.
Corsair SP2500 High-Power 2.1 PC Speaker System Review
26 September 2011
Lets face it, the 2200’s that Corsair produced were “eh”. That’s probably the best work I can use to describe them. The 2500’s are the exact opposite of “eh”, whatever that word may be. (“daaaaaamn!”). Corsair corrected all the problems associated with the 2200’s and improved upon them even further. They give you the ability to go completely through the volume spectrum and never cringe due to the awesome component construction that Corsair delivers.
Pros: – Sound Clarity, – Extremely Loud (if you enjoy sound that way), – Build Quality
Excerpt: Most of us enjoy plugging our computers into a good sounding set of speakers. Until relatively recently, however, it seemed that decent dedicated computer speakers were really hard to come by. Either manufacturers didn't care about decent sound, or didn't think there was a market for it. Corsair is the latest big name to come along to try and change that. Today, I'm taking an in depth look at the SP2500 in their Gaming Audio Series, which promises a lot for a low price.
Conclusion: My experience with the SP2500 was amazing. High’s, mid's and low's were all equally impressive. My only complaint from a gamers perspective was the lack of a 5.1 option for better directionality, but even for a 2.1 system in-game performance was wonderful. I was hesitant about the included controller when we started but I was impressed with its functionality.
Conclusion: The SP2500 is one of the highest-quality 2.1 speaker sets manufactured today. The set performs phenomenally in every listening area, but what makes it worth the $250 price tag is the astounding performance/low distortion in extremely loud playback scenarios. The installation was easy to perform and there were many welcome engineering choices, such as the remote control’s functions to further enhance the audio experience of listeners who do not have a high-end sound card.
Summary: It's undeniable that Corsair has made a rather showy entry into the PC speaker market with the Gaming Audio Series SP2500. The showiness doesn't just stem from the $250 price tag and huge subwoofer. One can also notice it in the speakers' ability to reach deafening volumes without noticeable distortion, not to mention the geeky remote control with its wealth of presets and configuration options.
Conclusion: In short the SP2500 is the best set of computer speakers I've seen and heard. Physically the set is in a whole another league when compared to the SP2200 and other smaller sets. The satellite speakers seem and feel very high quality and sturdy and the subwoofer is huge. As a nice touch there's also a separate remote controller. For connectivity there are three analog stereo inputs. Now this is really the only big con that I can think of - why is there no digital input?
Summary: Corsair is selling the SP2500 for Rs. 12,200, which is a lot more than some of the popular 2.1 speakers such as the legendary Altec Lansing MX5021 for example. The MX5021 is hard to find these days, but with vey few good options in the market, this is one solid speaker that you can consider especially if you're looking for colossal power and overall good performance. Corsair might have a winner on its hands but if they can tweak the price to under the Rs. 10,000 mark.
Summary: Corsair impressed us with the Corsair Gaming Audio SP2500 speaker kit, the overall sound quality is much higher then what you are used to with desktop speakers. Prices have dropped enough to make this an attractive kit to purchase. For that money you'll receive darn nice sound quality albeit not perfect. We do feel that the bass, especially acoustic bass, could sound a little warmer, but for any speaker set with a sub-woofer that likely is a huge biggest challenge.
