Summary: I loved these speakers. They were loud and the bass really boomed. It was because of these speakers that we quit using a separate stereo system all together. Hooked to our computer we had a much larger selection of music to chose from. I would be using these to this day if the volume control didn't quit working. Unfortunately without that piece the whole system is useless. They did last almost seven years though so it was money well spent.
Summary: I've tried a dozen or more 3pc computer speaker systems and nothing comes close to the powerful bass and crisp highs delivered by Creative. Even name brands like Altec Lansing that cost twice as much sound bad in comparison. This model comes with a wired volume control the size of half a pack of cigarettes that also has bass level, USB, and headphone out/mic in.
Summary: I first gave a positive review but when I actually used the subwoofer;I had all the correct plugs, etc. the woofer started making a buzzing sound that went off and on.I found out it was the power cord and was told sometimes this happens when outlet is overloaded.I then tried it on several outlets that had nothing else plugged in and it continues.Because the sale was "as is" I am stuck with something that doesn't work.
Summary: Incredible sound for the money, deep rich bass, nice looking. 2 small issues: Watch out for the rubber feet on the speakers (remove them) because they stained my desk after about 2 weeks. Also, the volume knob on the "Audio Control Pod" is dieing out. The volume fluctuates on its own, and is difficult to set. (I'm currently looking for a replacement Audio Control Pod - it'll be worth it because the overall sound and quality of the rest of the system is great.
Summary: i have had these for a few years now and they have been great. these are perfect for computers or basically anything that has a 3.5mm audio out jack. the bass is great and there is even a seperate control for it on the corded control. on that same control is an analog volume control which is a great add on for the price of these speakers.
Summary: I thought it was good when it worked but then one day it stopped and never worked again. I try to call the Creative people but they were not help. So unless you just need it for a year don't buy it.
