Pros: Well packaged, constructed, designed in appearance, 6 foot cord from PC to speakers (nice), Good tonal controls in the front that adjust sound appropriately. I got these on sale so my opinion is based on these for $69 but I would pay $90 and feel I received full value. These offer significant vol...
Cons: The bass distorts at higher volumes but with the bass adjustment knob you can achieve high volumes with descent bass.
Pros: Mids and treble frequencies are very good, especially mids. Build quality is very solid, can't speak for the cabling yet. Pretty small footprint for a desk, but they are pretty tall. They look great. Headphone and aux ports on the front are nice to have. Headphone port double as a ghetto headphon...
Cons: They struggle to reproduce some very low frequency bass tones (<40Hz). Can't reach a significant volume level without distortion in the bass, but for a fairly small bedroom they are clear and loud enough. Even so, the quality of the bass outdoes a lot of 2.1 systems.
Summary: I have owned Creative speakers in the past, and all have seemed to be better made. They've cheaped out recently. WIth Neweggs RMA policy, you pay for shipping. There goes $20 more for some speakers that hopefully work. Will update when I receive the second pair...
Pros: Look nice
Cons: Upon receiving the speakers and plugging them in, they made a loud clicking sound. The left speaker was inop. They had a slight smell coming from the bass port. I tested the power supply and it was faulty, I did not have a spare to test the speakers as its a cheap Chinese 27v 1.7A power adapter. ...
Summary: This is most probably a case of my socket reaching it's limit (Same circuit as washer), but when I hooked these up when the washing machine was running-it put the cirrcuit over the limit and flipped the breaker. Since then, I have redistributed the power needs for the entire system for safety.
Pros: Good looks-Well built speakers Sound is great-Bass response is good, not over bearing. Most important-Wife is happy~
