Worth every penny.

Summary: A friend has a set, they sounded great. Bought the bluetooth version. They sound great. Highs are clear, sub is more than enough for my taste. And of course they look feel like a quality product. This is the 3rd time that Harman Kardon has come though for me.
Summary: I'm not very knowledgeable about what makes some speakers better than others, but I do like good sound and the HK Soundsticks have it. They sound best when I'm facing them (they are mounted on windowsills just behind my desk and sit abut five feet apart). They produce very clear sound and according to my wife they're way too loud. If I turn the volume up near maximum, I begin to get a little distortion.
Summary: I have been a Bose system fan for the longest time, gave away my Companion 3 and looking to upgrade to Companion 5. I saw the Soundsticks at an apple store and quite impressed with the modern looks so I read a lot of reviews before reluctantly ordering one. I am so amazed at this product and glad I ordered one for myself. A lot cheaper than other computer speakers out there this one has the bass and clarity I did not expect.
Dazzling Design And Rich Sound Make This System A Winner

Summary: This system is simply dazzling. It's little wonder the Harmon Kardon Sound Sticks were chosen for the permanent collection of MOMA (Museum of Modern Art) the look is wonderfully eclectic, sleek and certainty unusual. Being a bit of an audiophile or rather a bit obsessive over sound quality for the past 45 years I've always subscribed to the philosophy that speakers are the one component of an audio system that you can't buy on specifications and should be auditioned...
Summary: Out of all the purchases I've ever made, this is the best one. These speakers don't disappoint in any way. Sure, their design is beautiful and you can go on about that for ages. But the sound quality, which is what truly matters, blows all others out of the water. Unless you're willing to drop some serious cash, you're not going to find better than Harmon/Kardon's Soundsticks III.
Summary: Good sound and great design. I'm sure there are better sound systems at similar prices, but these speakers do the job, and do it with style. I've been very happy with them. They are far better than the traditional PC computer speakers, though presumably not up to audiophile quality for a sound system. For their intended use, as speakers on my Macintosh computer, they're fabulous. I don't know if they won any design awards, but they should have.
Sound great and look cool for about 6 months. Then they just look cool

Summary: My 1st pair looked cool, sounded great, and quit working inexplicably after 2 years. My 2nd pair quit working after 6 months. There is NO quality or durability here. Advise that you spend your money elsewhere.
