Summary: May be good for those who are only going to listen music through this speaker set, but not good for movie watching or listening to audio books. The bass sounds too strong, and the speech sounds very muddled. I tried fiddling with the music/video player software EQ but that didn't help at all.
So I'm going to say that this may be a fine 2. 1 set up for a protected desk ...

Summary: Well, I bought this to replace a much more expensive Logitech 2.1 system that had an internal wiring problem in one of the speakers that made it not work most of the time. I didn't want to play with it, so I ordered this kit.
Excerpt: Very fast Shipping, very good experience with seller and also Souq.com. It's Working Fine. Creative A250 2.1 Multimedia Speaker have a very good sound Quality for me. and its covering all over my room. It's Low frequency woofer is amazing.
Summary: I bought these speakers as a cheap solution for adding music to my home gym. I could not be happier. They put out really great sound and the bass adds a nice overall feel to the audio. I was expecting much less for this price, but I was happily surprised.
They have a pretty full sound with the included subwoofer

Summary: I needed an inexpensive pair of desktop speakers, not wanting to spend more than $30.00, but wanting sound that didn't come across as tinny and cheap. These did the trick! They have a pretty full sound with the included subwoofer, they get pretty loud, and the music sounds clear.
Summary: One of the best 2.1 PC speakers I have ever owned. I am a critical listener when it comes to good audio and I owned another good Active Monitor Speakers. The sound coming out from this little speakers are good.
Summary: I was not very impressed by the quality of sound. I wanted this set of speakers to listen to FLAC/MP3 music. I guess it is good for the price. I would recommend spending on a quality set if you plan on listening to music on your computer.
Summary: A very nice little speaker setup. I purchased this item to use with a tv, which wasn't ideal for my situation but it worked. I'm familiar with Creative's soundcards so I knew to expect good sounds. Bass is smooth. Didnt hear distortion at high levels overall.
Summary: For the price this is a great buy. However, as the title indicates, I wish that I could turn down the bass on the actual unit rather than needing to go through software or the operating system (I have not found a built-in equalizer on Windows 8.1 Pro).
