Summary: go with a higher end 2.1 or better. had no budget in mind, felt dumb right off the bat for having spent so much on a 2.0, and said feeling increases more by the moment. for this price, go logi****. 5.1 for the same price....no contest!
Pros: FANTASTIC mid range and treble
Cons: bass=garbage. i thought perhaps the bass would be at least ACCEPTABLE given the cost. as time goes by (note purchase date) they seem to clip more and more(regardless of which driver) ...this simply should NOT happen.
Summary: I have owned these speakers for about 5 hours and i regret this purchase. The bass is unforgivably deep and loud. I don't know who these speakers are supposed to be for but they are NOT for the average computer user. You will watch YouTube videos and feel annoyed with how much bass there is. Way.
Pros: great depth, great range, clear speakers
Cons: the bass is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY TOOOOOOOOOOOO HIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I don't get it. There are knobs to control the bass, the treble, and the overall volume. I kept the knobs at the default setting, and the bass was overwhelming. Listening to a radio show (howard stern) the bass was overwhelming, it ...
Summary: *They're accurate, so they're going to highlight bad audio too. Clipping in >192-bit rate mp3's is obvious above maybe 60% volume. Cleaner LAME files seem to be much better up to about 80% before distortion sets in; but nothing sounds good at 100%.
Pros: Bought these for work to ditch a very dated Cambridge 2.1 system that just wasn't cutting it any more. These are very good in that aspect. The woven speaker and silk tweeter are what my ears prefer in this speaker set's range. They're soft and pretty darn accurate IMO*. Size may be an issue, but ...
Cons: No mounting options at all. They must set on your desk or figure some other creative way of mounting them (no pun intended). Considering that there's no mounting ability, I have another 2.0 favorite to plop on my own desktop. Audio-in cord is relatively short. Will work for most consumers, but no...
Cons: the right speaker something went wrong.. it still works but doesn't produce the same level as the left side. doesn't vibrate or anything just sounds like its in space. but it still works and loud.. thats why i gave it a 3 star..
Summary: I think Creative should seriously consider adding a nice sub to pair up with these. They'd have a serious competitor on their hands if they did so.
Pros: Remind me of B&W looks wise. Nice high gloss Black finish with a Blue flake on the front. Visually pleasing, layed out nicely.. Overall love the way they look..
Cons: IMHO not too sure these are worth $100.00 They seriously lack on the low end of things... I'm considering returning them and continue using my $30.00 Logitech with the 8" sub. My only problem with those are the space the sub takes up. I haven't made up my mind yet. I'd honestly not recommend thes...
Summary: If you are expecting it to perform as good as 5.1 speakers about $200+ then you are sadly mistaken. It's not even close. Bass is pretty pathetic but expected for this small speakers. Also for the volume, you can only crank it up for that much.....
Pros: Small size Pretty light weight Ease of Installation Pretty decent for 2.0 speakers
Cons: Shallow and small size speakers Bass is weak. Need subwoofer. It's NOT loud.
Summary: I bought these to improve the audio from my flat screen LED TV, since I didn't have the funds or space, for a proper AV Receiver solution. For that purpose they do a good job, introducing some hefty bass and clarity where there was none before.
Summary: I was really hoping for more from these speakers. I've had a number of Creative products over the years and each has delivered really strong audio performance, so I had no qualms about ordering them.
Summary: I'll keep this review to the essentials: BASS: I don't know why some reviewers say these speakers lack bass response (I'd suggest it's probably the inadequacies of their sound card), if anything, I've found the bass tends to overwhelm everything else if moved beyond it's half-way default setting.
