Harman Kardon SoundSticks III

  • Summary: Value Great sound, great look, great price. Considering that the SoundSticks III pair high style with high function so brilliantly, the price is more than reasonable for what you get. This boldly designed 2.1 speaker system is backed by an abundance of power and first-rate sound. You just have to live with fewer conveniences.
  • Pros: Clear, detailed sound, Unusual design, Handles high sound volume without distortion
  • Cons: Lacks extras like headphone jack and remote, Can't turn off glowing light

Harman Kardon SoundSticks III

PC Magazine
19 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Harman Kardon SoundSticks III is mainly a cosmetic upgrade of previous models, and a subtle one at that, but this 2.1-channel PC speaker set remains our Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Excellent audio performance. Unique—and now classic—design. Powerful, with strong subwoofer. Improved cable quality.
  • Cons: No remote control. Bass volume control is on subwoofer itself. Semi-hardwired cables—if cables fail, system needs to be repaired or replaced.

Harman Kardon SoundSticks III

CNET
9 September 2011
  • Summary: The $170 SoundSticks III speakers offer light cosmetic upgrades (and unfortunately retain a few irritations) from the previous model, but if you're a fan of the iridescent design, this speaker system won't disappoint.
  • Pros: The Harman Kardon SoundSticks III 2.1 speakers equip music lovers with four drivers in each satellite and a large subwoofer to pump extra bass.
  • Cons: There's no external jack for plugging in headphones, the bass controls are mounted on the subwoofer itself, and there's no way to turn off the translucent lighting without powering down the entire system.

CNET
4 November 2011
  • Summary: Mit dem SoundSticks III von Harman Kardon ist nun schon die dritte Generation dieses speziellen 2.1-Lautsprechersystems im Handel. Allerdings gibt es zu den Vorgängern optisch keine und technisch kaum Unterschiede – lohnt sich der Kauf des Neulings überhaupt?
  • Pros: extravagantes Design, guter Klang
  • Cons: kein Kopfhöreranschluss, Bass-Kontrollen sind am Subwoofer selbst lokalisiert, Beleuchtung lässt sich nur abstellen, indem das ganze System abgeschaltet wird
