Summary: This set of speakers can't be beat at this price point. The highs are clear, the bass is not muddy and is quite powerful, and the set up looks very sleek. The speakers and subwoofer really don't take up too much room at all, they are pretty small pieces, which, in my eyes, is a plus so they don't look too obtrusive and are usable in a wider variety of settings as compared to larger speakers.

Summary: An amazing deal;I've tried them out for awhile and they have certainly surpassed my expectations. Another great deal that I've scored from Amazon. I'll be back;oh,by the way,they're hooked up to an Asus Chromebox from, Amazon. Absolutely,The Greatest Computer that I have ever owned;and I have had plenty.
Summary: Love this little system. Sounds super clear and the volume module is very convenient. Contrary to a couple reviews I read, there is a bass volume control (back of the subwoofer). Great unit for the money! EDIT: After about a week's use, I starting noticing some crackling and hissing noises. It is very annoying to hear with the music. I've submitted a return request for this item and plan to go with another model instead.
Decent for the price, but you get what you pay for

Summary: See update below... 1st review: For the price, it's decent. The volume controller is the number 1 feature that I was looking for so I can manually control the volume of my speakers or headphones. Headphones and/or auxiliary devices (iphone, android, etc.) connect to the volume controller as well (auxiliary cable not included), which is convenient. My only issue seems to be one that others have complained about.
Summary: Sounds pretty good. My ears are not what they used to be so I'm not as picky as I used to be either. To my ear, they are perfectly adequate for 90% of most situations. Because you stick them in a poor sound environment with fan noise and other background noise it's unlikely you'll be able to tell these from speakers that cost twice as much without REALLY listening for it.
