User Review

11 February 2014
  • Summary: These are just simply amazing. I'm surprised there hasn't been a review on head-fi about these. I've been through 8-10 computer speakers and these are the best for the money.   If you think the Harman Kardon Soundsticks III are good, the GLA-55 (get it? GLA55 looks like glass?) kicks their butt.    I've never heard such good bass from 3 inch midrange drivers that have to cover mid and bass frequencies.
  • Pros: Great treble with accurate dedicated tweeters; Slick looking design; Limited Edition (3000 made only); Has a subwoofer out option
  • Cons: Kinda expensive, but definitely worth the investment.

  • Summary: I have a set of these paired with a Martin Logan Dynamo 300 sub (you do need a sub) and Arcam rPac DAC to clean it up and the sound is incredible

Responsive Bass, beautiful sound

Andrew Remington Fox, Amazon

  • Summary: I use these speakers for music production and they are hands-down the best speakers I've ever encountered if clarity is what you are looking for. I've never adjusted the bass but there is a bass adjustment screw on back of the speakers to allow you to double? the bass from the default setting. Still, without adjustment, these speakers pack a punch even without a subwoofer, they sound like they have one.

Overpriced Alien Shaped Sound Speakers

F. ram "Fernanda", Amazon

  • Summary: SOund Sticks much better. Also easier to control bass. If gla55 had more sound pressure, ok. Not the case. Only near field. Pain in the neck adjusting the bass, they shouldv provided proper tool for that. Not a good choice. Run from Gla55. Also, if you purchase 2 Sound Sticks III, you will have double the sound pressure with minimal quality diference. Very disapointed.

Performance Exceptional As Expected

Miller, Amazon

  • Summary: Both elegant and unparalleled sound quality emits from these "futuristic" luxury sond system. Many users refrain from using proper quality music though these speakers and think they similar to cheaper speakers. If quality, luxury-futuristic appearance, and audiophile sound is your goal, stray no further, as these speakers are everything described.

Probably the best (and most expensive) computer speakers on the market

Racer, Amazon
28 January 2012
  • Summary: The sound quality will blow you away. I no longer have to mess with the equalizer because all frequencies are well represented with these speakers. The Atlas excursion is amazing and a sub is not necessary. I turned the bass up about 70% in the rear button and it does not distort even at high volume. The aluminum tweeter sizzles with the best treble I have heard on computer speakers. The mids are smooth as well.

Best Computer Speaker Money Can Buy Period!

IronCan "ironcan", Amazon

  • Summary: Do not be fooled by the beautiful crystal-like appearance into thinking this is all looks and of no utility. In my opinion this is the best speaker in it's category as dedicated pc/laptop speaker (to prevent argument, I know you can build better sound system via home theater setup, but not everyone is interested in such complexity, so lets not go there). Back on to the review. The tweeter is amazing, reproducing sound in beautiful clarity.

Awesome computer speakers

J. Robinson, Amazon
30 November 2011
  • Summary: These speakers replaced a pair of Auedioengine A5's that I have been using. Granted the GLA-55's are quite a bit more expensive, but they are a night and day difference better over the Audioengines. They have a great spectrum of sound reproduction, all the way from the lows to the highs. They are crystal clear. The looks do take some getting used to, but everyone that has come over and has seen them has gone "wow, what are those"?
