Summary: Now if you want audiophile type speakers look somewhere else. but if you just want to hear your computer because the surrounding noise makes it hard to hear, and you want something that sounds good for the money. Then this will work fine.
Summary: First, it took nearly 10 days to get these (can we spell " S L O W?). When I first hooked them up, they didn't work. Called customer service and spoke with an uncaring female who told me to send them back if they didn't work. . . great (!). Once I figured out the problem, the speakers did work.
Pros: nice and crisp sound. the sub woofer is strong as heck for its size but i guess thats why its from hercules. you can turn the sub all the way off (thats good for me cause i use my speakers at night and the subs will wake everyone up in my house.) has a line in port in the front so you can just pl...
Cons: i find it weird how the on/off switch is behind the sub woofer. not very convenient but not really a con. i regret not buying these on newegg because they cost me 15 bucks more at another retailer...
Cons: no on/off switch on remote. (it's on the sub ). Has a lot of hiss in between songs. I replaced a set of 23 dollar speakers with these, but wish I had stuck with the cheaper 17 watt set...they out preformed these in features and sound quality.
Summary: First of all let me say thanks to Amazon for their usual first class delivery time and everything arrived well packaged. Now for the kit itself, WOW what an excellent good looking speaker and sub woofer set up, dinky slimline speakers and an equaly dinky subwoofer.
Summary: I wanted some 2.1 speakers mostly for listening to music. In that respect most sub-£50 systems disappoint in that they boom and tweet fine, but no mid-range (you will see that in a lot of reviews) - for music no mid-range makes the music sound very thin. Not a problem here.
Summary: recently purchased these speakers due to them having good reviews from previous buyers, and i have not been disappointed. for the price these speakers have great sound quality and the bass is deep.
