Hercules XPS 101 Review

  • Conclusion: The XPS 101 2.1 multimedia speaker system is well styled, thoughtfully designed and easy to setup and use. We think this system would be an excellent addition to a dorm room or for a young gamer’s setup. However, the system’s excessively bright highs and particularly thumpy bass are likely to turn off picky music listeners.
  • Pros: Excellent look and feel, Above-average subwoofer performance, Convenient volume, bass, treble control, Good selection of connecting cables
  • Cons: Fatiguing treble at close range, Subwoofer EQ geared for very thumpy bass, Tough to balance sound at differing volumes

  • Conclusion: If you look past some odd design choices, the Hercules XPS 101 2.1 PC speakers are a powerful option with customizable bass and treble levels.
  • Pros: Extremely powerful output with high quality audio performance at default EQ settings. Treble and Bass levels are adjustable to dial in a desired balance. Doesn’t distort at tolerable volume levels.
  • Cons: Subwoofer tends to get muddy when pushed beyond mid-level. Wired remote control is a little clunky, with an annoying click wheel control. Odd placement for connections on bottom panel of subwoofer.
