Summary: This speaker system sounds like it should be worth well over $100. The sound is crisp, and the lower end very powerful for its price. I would say it's limited to a single room, which should probably be no more than 200-300 sq. feet. Perfect for my bedroom, and well worth it.
Summary: I purchased a set of these through another vendor after reading the reviews here and at other sites online. My first set arrived DOA, which was promptly replaced by the vendor, and the replacement set failed a few days ago (the audio out wiring to the PC is what failed).
Summary: This is a detailed review: I, like many others, bought these speakers on recommendation from a few top reviews. My Creative 6.1 system died after 5 years, and rather than splurge on another 5.1+ system, I decided to go with 2.1 (I plan on linking everything up to a surround sound home theater system...
Summary: I needed a simple three speaker setup and the Hercules speakers fit the bill. They are modern looking and go great with a black and silver computer. The sound is better than I expected and the price was really pretty good.
Summary: Being somewhat of a stereo enthusiast, the output of the system is very acceptable, and I make use of the control module to plug in my Koss stereo headphones using the Koss EQ503-band equalizer, which allows a midrange sound to suit my needs, and without waking my wife and pets.
Summary: These speakers have great sound for the money. If I could change one thing it would be a treble control. the bass is excellent for such a tiny speaker, but sometimes I want a little less treble with my volume.
Summary: I read an expert review of these speakers and decided to order them, even though I had doubts about their quality for $44. I was pleasantly surprised. Great speakers, easy to connect and they have the option of sitting on a desk or hanging on the wall. They look great and sound even better!
