Look cool, average performance for music, sufficient for tv or gaming.

  • Summary: These look very cool but I was a little disappointed with performance. They sound hollow and a bit muted. I owned a set of altec lansing computer speakers about 8 years in a similar price range ago and they sounded far better than these..

great sound and looks, don't last long

  • Summary: It is simple: They sound great if you like clear sound and not an overload of bass. Most audiophiles would like them. If you like more boombox style bass then you need something else. They look great and the satelites do not take up much space, I put a premium on that. The controls are a disaster.

Not as great as they're hyped up to be, especially for $100

  • Summary: I was really excited about these speakers, mostly due to the rave reviews. However, now that I have them on my desk I am certainly underwhelmed. The comments about lack of midrange are right on. The bass is nice, treble is nice, but it's very thin through the midrange.

Good sound but there are glitches

  • Summary: I have two sets of soundsticks and have found that the volumn cannot be turned up loud enough on one set. The other set works and sounds fine. I've had both about 3 years and now the one set that has been working great is now full of static on the sub and one of the two desk top speakers.

Good, but could do better.

  • Summary: To begin, I mean in no way for this review to be negative, simply take it for face value and understand that there are many other satisfied people. I am somewhat of an audiophile and have invested good sums of money in quality musical and audio equiptment.

Nice Style, Could Sound Better

  • Summary: The Soundsticks look nice and complement my new Mac Mini well. But they don't look quite as nice as the well-lit picture. The beads in the satellites aren't sky-blue like in the picture either. Mine are more of a dark-purple, which aren't as attractive. Sound-wise, the satellites sound good.

Temporary mid-priced option while you save up for a Bose alternative

  • Excerpt: THE BASICS Comprise a three piece speaker system (one subwoofer and two satellite 'soundsticks') specifically designed for use with Macs and iPods, though suitable for use via a mini stereo jack connection with any PC or audio system. It retails at around £99.99.

Great in most ways but not the most important one

  • Summary: Ok. I've just purchased a new PC with a top of the range Creative labs sound card, the next order of business was a good pair of PC speakers. Having read the rave reviews on this site & others, I decided to go for the Soundsticks II.

  • Excerpt: Мне удалось купить эту акустику за 6500 руб., но даже за такую цену я не впечатлен совершенно, удовольствия не получаю. Бас приходится ставить на минимум, при выкручивании саба более 1/3 - вместо баса получается скорее гул, чем звук, причем с приличным звуковым давлением, что напрягает.
  • Pros: Высокое качество изготовления, приятно держать в руках, крепкие надежные провода.
  • Cons: Звук из динамиков слегка синтетический, плосковато-примитивный, да и бас не впечатлил совершенно. Внешний вид спорный, я не в восторге, подкупала лишь цена.

  • Excerpt: После месяца эксплуатации начался очень сильный фоновый шум и пищание, по гарантии не приняли, слышал в нескольких моделях этот писк , если я не один - отзовитесь.
  • Pros: Качество звучания, внешний вид, качество сборки, хороший ценник.
  • Cons: Хотелось бы больше поддержки в России, сервисной.
