Summary: These speakers worked fine for almost a year and then stopped working. I have been waiting over a month for a part that may fix this but I have my doubts. I used the headphone jack a bit and think that is the cause as the headphones still work but the main speakers don't. I have no confidence at all now in this companies customer service and will never buy another of their products.
Summary: the Hercules xps 2/060 were bar none the best of the several computer desktop speakers I've used: very clear with very distinct separation between speakers, decent base and good controls. Unfortunately after perhaps 10 months of use, they died. I see several complaints of what seems to be poor workmanship...so, sadly I'll look elsewhere for the next pair. Ahh, the French, so pure, so delicate, so fragile. Whoa, an update.
Summary: These are pretty nice speakers for just a two-piece set. The right speaker has the controls - power/volume, separate bass/treble knobs, as well as a headphone jack and auxiliary input for MP3 players etc, which is sweet. The left speaker has no controls. The bass is nowhere near as robust as a system with a subwoofer, but these take up less room and won't drive your neighbors insane. My usual bass test track is Dinosaurs Lament by African Headcharge.
Summary: These speakers sound great. With no signal in there is no hiss or noise even with volume at max. With the seperate bass and treble controls you can get the sound you want instead of just settling as with a single tone control. My only minor complaints are the glossy finish and there is a pop when I shut down the power but as I said both are no big deal. I actually listen to music at my PC again.
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. (I had blown the $15 logitec cheapees that I got at the local PC shop many years ago, you get what you pay for) I did some research at CNET and other PC speaker reviews online and these Hercules XPS 2.0 Model 60's speakers had real...
Summary: Ottimo suono, ideali per chi si avvicina ai sequencer e alla produzione musicale. Unico neo, i knob dei bassi e del treble, non danno questa gran differenza anche se sparati al massimo. Prezzo super vantaggioso!
Summary: Queste casse stereo di Hercules hanno un aspetto raffinato, sebbene la sua superficie nera lucida sia particolarmente sensibile alle ditate. Le XPS 2.0 60 sono molto potenti, addirittura impressionanti con certi pezzi classici o rock. Non mancano tuttavia i difetti. A volume basso, la regolazione dei bassi e degli alti incide davvero ben poco sull'equilibrio del suono.
Summary: sinceramente ero titubante verso l'acquisto di questa coppia di casse, vista la mia ignoranza sul Brand "hercules", però ho subito cambiato idea, facendo un analisi sul prezzo e sulle varie recensioni , non solo su questo tipo di merce ma anche su tutti gli altri prodotti del brand, tra l'altro le ho trovate anche in un ipermercato, così ho potuto toccare con mano il materiale e la fattura delle Casse, i componenti di legno e quelli di plastica sono ottimi, la conferma...
