Great sound and awesome customer service from the company.

Summary: I got these speakers for my husband as a present for Christmas. Shortly after hooking them up, we noticed a crackling sound coming out of the speakers. It was past the return period for Amazon so I contacted the company directly describing the problem. I heard back within two days and they sent out a new control pod immediately. Solved part of the problem. Now he could hear without crackling through ear buds, but not at all through the speakers.
Summary: I don't usually write product reviews - but I absolutely had to for this set of speakers. At first, they were great. Great sound, good bass, etc. But, after having used them for a month, the began to develop a distinct crackling/static-like sound. Initially it wasn't that bad, but after a few more months the static has grown louder and louder and more frequent.
Lots of noise from the volume controller after six months

Summary: I enjoyed my speakers for about six months, then they started emitting noise at random times. It appears to be caused by the controller. I just ordered a $15 replacement unit, which is a hassle. The volume control uses a super cheap mechanical potentiometer to do the job. Electronic parts cleaner didn't help. Let's hope the replacement part is better. Great sound for the money initially, but I expect much more.
Summary: Got it a lil' late-no biggy. Got it all hooked up and tested: immediately noticed very high sound quality; which is why I got THIS rig as apposed to the other ones. The bass on here is definitely clean, I can tell you could blow out the sub pretty easily on too high of volume though...
Summary: Got nervous over and over reading the negative reviews. However, these are fine computer speakers. Quiet, good sound, clear, more than plenty of bass. Glad I didn't listen to the negative reviews, which go along with every speaker system, making me wonder what they are comparing to.
Summary: OK so you're looking at speakers trying to decide among various Made In China pieces of c***. This set is reasonably priced, is easy to set up, looks slick, sounds fine (though I'm not an audiophile). Don't know about durability, probably the same as any other thing Made in China. Some of us will get lemons that will break fast and we'll give it one star, time will tell what I got. Do we have a choice?
