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. They did however double the volume when I plugged my headphones into the speakers as opposed to the laptop. So I was looking for that with these.
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? I have kids playing around these and they're speakers, and an amplifier... aren't they?? These are electronics right???
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. Also a side note is that the blue LED light on the right speaker is powerful enough to melt a hole into what ever its aimed at.
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??: Now it's easy to misrepresent such data without overt lying, but the effect is the same; you're offering to potential customers what you cannot, or will not, provide. e.g.
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... not even close to hi-fi when finally audible.
Summary: Bought these expecting from the reviews and price to be brilliant. Now they do have great sound quality and look very good. However the volume on them is simply crap. My old speakers which I had for 6 years and cost half the price were not as good quality but they could easily out perform these in volume. In the endI managed to boost he volume on my laptop hoever I a unale to do this on my phone or Ipod.
Summary: tried these out with different tunes and from iphone etc. are people just lazy when it comes to listening to music now? i'm a sound engineer and been searching for medium cost decent quality speakers for ages. when are speaker manufacturers going to realise there's a massive market for wireless/bluetooth amplifiers for people who like their stereo field to be wider than the gap between their ears?
Excerpt: Ну чтож... ясно понятно, что более менее достойный звук надо искать от 8 тыс и более.
Pros: Дизайн на 4- (под стать чёрным мониторам)
Cons: Очень плохие низы, их нет там и 50Гц, усилок коверкает звук на выходе (Jack 3.5) выпиливает басы. Проверял через вакуумные наушники. Если слушать на средней громкости, то басов почти нет. А те, что есть порезанные усилком в частотном диапазоне. Их явно не хватает даже на тихой громкости. Ах да и 50 Вт мощность... это просто смешно! Вспомните АС Вега 25 Вт! :) Чашка низкочастотника мала как игрушечная.
