Excellent fidelity!

Rocky The Dog, Amazon

  • Summary: I spent a great portion of my working years (I'm retired now) in the audio business and I amazed at how great these Hercules XPS 2.0 60's sound. I hooked them up to my LCD TV using the TV's "headphone out" mini plug into the mini plug input in the speaker.

  • Summary: UPDATE: the very first set we have are a year old and are working fine, and sound good. My son saved up his money to buy a second set for his mom's house. the amplifier died inside of 30 days and they'd only work for 15-30 seconds. Returned them for another set, which has handled nicely by amazon.

Speakers died

  • Summary: Great looking speakers, great sound, easy to install. But they stopped working after about 3/4 year. The problem is with the audio inputs. Hercules offered to send a repair part, but I decided to replace them with speakers that have fewer reported problems, going from the Amazon reviews.

Hercules XPS 2.0 Model 60 Speakers

David S. Campbell, Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: The Amazon review would not let me choose 5 stars. Hmmm. Anyway, I wanted some good quality speakers to connect to my laptop to ROCK the room but also to hear the range of Pink Floyd or EmersonLake&Palmer but I didn't want to spend too much.

Awesome speakers!

Peter Matthew Thomsen, Amazon

  • Summary: Firstly, I'm not an audiofile but I have evaluated a lot of speakers and headphnoes. These speakers are incredible and I'm extremely impressed with what I got for the money. I bought these and a pair of Klipsch with Sub and I thought the Klipsch sounded awesome until I did a direct comparison.

The sound quility is bad

  • Summary: I give this speaker one star because the sound quility are really bad. the bass is very messy and the mid range are very unclear, the high range is bad too. I bought this due to its nice look, but without sound, it worth nothing, I am not sure why so many people say its sound are clear and craspy.

Same problem as others had

Steven M Garcia, Amazon

  • Summary: I was very excited to use these computer speakers as they had everything I was interested in: 1) great price, 2) 2.0 speaker system (2.0 do *NOT* come with a floor subwoofer, 2.1 systems do and I do not want a subwoofer), 3) various, easily reached knob controls, 4) good power output 30W RMS (15x2),...

Well, at least they look good

LeimanH, Amazon

  • Summary: Hooked the speakers up and was immediately impressed with rich full sound. Then, almost as immediately, my pleasure was disrupted by by the main speaker cutting in and out intermittently. Have now been fiddling with the connections for over 10 months without any permanent solution to problem.

  • Summary: These speakers were ordered this summer to have a nicer substitute for my laptop speakers at school. I played music frequently through them, but never at or near max volume. I'll tell you how they work. Initial Quality: Impressions were very good.

This item is horrible!

s.m., Amazon
26 May 2009
  • Summary: Do NOT BUY this speaker set! It is a Hercules product which should be of good quality. But that is only in theory, not in reality. The sound was awful and it kept giving out in the right speaker. All in all producing a bass heavy sound lacking in the midrange and highs.
