Great speakers for price, until they fail.

Kyle W., Newegg
29 December 2014
  • Pros: Good not great sound, nice heavy construction, look great on your desk
  • Cons: Left speaker will fail you over time. I've had these for around 4 years and today it finally stopped working. Reading other reviews it looks like I got lucky that they even lasted this long. Save your money and spend 200-300 for a quality set of powered speakers, You'll thank me in the long run.

I felt like I had gotten totally ripped off

Christopher Drennen, Amazon
17 October 2014
  • Summary: Speakers were very disappointing. They distorted at relatively low volume and would not deliver full sound that filled the room. Considering the size and power of the speakers, this was really disturbing. I thought the speakers were defective, so I attempted to return them.

Not Great For Headphones

Brian Quinlan, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought them to plug my headphones into to listen to rock music on my laptop. It is basically about as good as plugging directly into the headphone jack on my laptop - maybe a little better. My old speakers were getting quite old and not working well.

User Review

an anonymous customer, Walmart
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I thought that 50W would be adequate but upon hooking it up to my TV, I did not get the expected volume. Maybe I also have an issue with the TV (Sceptre X322BV) not sending out a strong enough output to the Speaker. Delivery from WalMart On Line was Swift.

Looks good but sound bad

  • Summary: pros: looks good, easy to use cons: sound quality is not good, the bass and treble knob are useless, since it can cause serious distortion. Besides, this item cannot be returned.

Hazardous material DO NOT PURCHASE!!

Denny0069, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: I ordered these and received a defective pair, one cuts out and doesn't work. I gave them 2 stars because they do look good. I have tried to return them to Amazon, but in the returns it lists these speakers as unreturnable due to hazardous material... WTF?

Not worth the money

Mike Little, Amazon

  • Summary: These speakers have a flat sound and high distortion. Many cheaper and much smaller speakers produce better sound. I wouldn't buy these again.

Came out of box broken

PainDistributor, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • Summary: These are very pretty looking speakers and still have them plugged in after over a year. The problem is that as soon as I set them up there is a grumble when any moderate volume is played with a nice bass to it. They can get pretty loud but with the problem i stated before.

What you buy isn't what you get

SCSingh "SCSingh", Amazon
24 March 2013
  • Summary: This is the second pair of powered Genius speakers that I've bought, and am no more satisfied with them as I was with the 1st. 1) 20Hz - 20kHz: I never expected them to really reproduce 20Hz, or even 40Hz, but I don't think they even got close. 2) 50W RMS? Where??

Weak

founderbrn, Amazon
22 January 2013
  • Summary: These are very quiet speakers at max volume! Seriously, I was replacing a pair of logitech speakers that only pushed a total of 2.4 Watts that are almost as loud. On top of that, there is definitely a significant quality loss when turning up the volume...
