Pros: The sound quality is okay and the speakers are small & convenient.
Cons: The main speaker can't be removed from the bass, so setting it up on a desk against a wall can be a challenge. The volume of the speakers are integrated with the OS, which is a bad design in my opinion.
Summary: Decent sound quality, bluetooth works reasonably well and gets the full 30 ft range of bluetooth, The SUB box sound quality could be a little better, it doesn't have quite as much low bass as I was expecting, it's covering more of the 60Hz and above than 60Hz and below.
Summary: Started out great, then they just died, great sound coming from them for the last few weeks then they just died. No sound coming from the speakers. When I plugged in my headphones they worked fine.
Summary: These speakers sound okay for just listening to music or what have you but the problem is with the Bluetooth. They were a little difficult to get synched up in the initial installation but once that was done they remained in synch. The problem is that the audio skips. I can be listening to music online and the music skips for a solid 45 seconds.
4 Star Speakers -- 1 Star Directions (result 3 stars)
30 June 2012
Summary: Hiya, Decided to rewrite this review. THE GOOD -- these speakers sound MUCH better than their small size. Perfect for smaller rooms or nearby travel even. THE BAD -- there are more wires than you'd expect, but it's better than having batteries in everything. Or a recharging unit that dies. THE UGLY -- the included directions to these speakers were printed in 2009.
Summary: The Creative Inspire S2 speakers are a decent set of budget speakers. The only wireless connection for these speakers is between the source and the speaker system. An iPhone (iDevice) or laptop with Bluetooth can connect to these speakers with no wire. The system is far from wire free. There is a laptop style AC adapter that plugs into the back of the big black bass module.
Summary: I was expecting something a little bigger, especially for the price. The sound is OK for such a small system. If compact size and very low operating power(3W-5W)and standby power (3W) are what you want, then this system has decent sound. However, I think you can probably get something equivelant for half the price.
Summary: I bought these speakers for my office. The sound is pretty decent. They put out more than enough volume and bass for my needs, but they're not shielded very well and pick up massive interference from my AT&T cell phone. When these are on, I have to put my cell phone on the other side of the room. Not very convenient when a call comes in. I'm going to pack them up this afternoon and give them to my wife to use at her office.
Summary: I bought this for my mother to use with her laptop on a built in desk with limited space. I've owned a tiny set of Creative speakers before and thought they were great, so I figured these would be too. They look really nice, and seem well built. The sound is decent, but not great, as the satellites seem incapable of driving *any* bass, but the sub compensates when firing.
