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. 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 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.

  • Summary: One of the drivers has a very slight rattly buzz. Not really a big issue. But the overall sound is very inaccurate. The distortion is about what you'd expect (kinda high). There's too much bass, it's boomy and uncontrolled. It helps to turn down bass control, but still pretty messy. This is compounded by a lack of midrange voice. There is too much treble. And, a plastic, harsh tweeter, not soft or cloth or silk.

Looks good but sound bad

Siyu Chen, Amazon

  • 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

  • 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???

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

  • 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.

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??: 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.

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... not even close to hi-fi when finally audible.
