Not so Great!

Coralmist, Bestbuy
30 January 2014
  • Summary: These speakers go in standby mode if no sound is detected in a few minutes, and they take about 3 to 4 seconds to come out of standby.
  • Pros: Sound is Fair to Good
  • Cons: Standby feature

Second speaker arrived DOA

Eddi Haskell, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: The speakers appear to be well made, and one sounds just OK. I found the sound "closed" but this is to be expected from speakers this size. But the second one arrived DOA. I have never had a defective powered speaker problem. Although I am sure this is a one-off, I cannot recommend this.

MF1616 versus MF1615 (European vs. non model)

David Stone, Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: The Amazon page for this product show model number: 51MF1615AA002, which is also printed on the box. But the serial number sticker on the box shows: YMMF1616... and the model actually inside the box is an MF1616. This is the European version with the power savings feature, which is not what I wanted (see other review comments on this product for why this is undesirable). I had the same problem directly ordering this unit from Creative (fulfilled by Amazon).

Dead after 5 months of light use.

12 August 2011
  • Summary: Right (main) speaker started crackling and then died. Left speaker is still working. Wasn't listening to music at the time. No return emails from Creative. Good speakers while they lasted though.

Not for the money

Dustin, Amazon
20 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought these speakers to replace a ten year old pair of Altec Lansing speakers with a bum volume control. The Creative speakers do not live up to the hype. They are overly tuned for higher range frequencies due to their small size and the sound quality suffers terribly for it. The speakers are amazingly clear with not alot of distortion even when turned up, but there is almost no bass response whatsoever.

Not impressed!!!

goochman55, Ebay
15 September 2010
  • Summary: i got a good price through an auction but, I'm not impressed with these speakers at all. I would be really disappointed it I paid retail for them. The amplifier is not very powerful, so if you buy them for a laptop through the headphone jack, you'll be more disappointed. The bass, which is supposed to be full and rich, starts getting distortion at pretty low volume. For the price, I would definitely suggest Logitech speaker instead.

Too little bass

KAC453 "Harold", Amazon
29 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought these speakers because of excellent reviews and the fact I wanted a 2.0 system not having room for a sub-woofer. My previous speakers, Klipsch Promedia Ultra 2.0, lost function in the volume control so that any adjustments resulted in static and loss of the right speaker. These Creative speakers are slightly larger, have very smooth controls, and independent bass and treble adjustment. They are solid, well built, and well packaged.

Good sound, stupid feature

Jocelyn, FutureShop
1 January 2014
  • Summary: The overall quality of these speakers is good. The sound is clear and the bass level is acceptable for speakers without a sub. The only complaint, but it is a major one, is the stupid auto-shutdown feature after 10 minutes of not using them. This "feature" should be only on european models to comply with the norm there, but was also present in the pair bought in Montreal store.

Surprisingly disappointing

Dr. A. J. Sykes "Alan Sykes", Amazon
14 July 2013
  • Summary: Sorry to buck the trend of hyperboles of praise, but bought these after reading the never - ending praise reviews, to replace my sadly demised Creative Labs I-Trigue 3200 2.1 system I had to send them back after listening to them for an hour. No meaningful bass, especially after being used to a subwoofer. No "feel". I found them boring and non-involving. Muffled and indistinct sound - well at least to my wax-free ears.

Volume / power dial switch faulty

K. Hendry, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: As mentioned on other reviews, the low volume clarity on these speakers is what I like best about them. After a few months I noticed the volume power switch was failing to turn the speaker on. The problem got worse and today in 2013 after numerous tries, I can't actually power them on. Creative's support is not good. They failed to understand the problem when I tried to explain over email what it was. They kept on thinking it was the PSU, which it wasn't.
