Good Buy

T. Gough "Machinehead", Amazon
30 January 2014
  • 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.

Poor sound quality

Gortalath "Gortalath", Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: I was very surprised at how bad the sound quality is on this speaker system as it has excellent reviews from other customers. The sound is very tinny and the treble is very high with little bass. I'm used to an old Philips system which despite being very cheap has always sounded incredible. The satellite speakers are very lightweight and so it feels as though they do not provide a solid footing to be able to project sound.

snap crackle and pop

M Robinson, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: After weeks of putting up with snap crackle and pop for these, I finally replaced the speakers. I thought it was something to do with the new PC i bought, after trying multiple things, disabling sound cards etc I found I was getting feedback from the speakers even when not hooked up to the PC. Once plugged into the power source I'd get the crackle, pops at every other interval which was highly annoying.

Value for money

pavlos, Amazon

  • Summary: Received the item on the next day as it said. Very clear sound event at max volume. Bought it for my livingroom and you can hear it from everywhere in the flat. Recommend it for people with a low budget but still want a decent sound quality.

Perfect mini-sound system

Kat, Amazon
1 October 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a small sound system that is easy to move around the house and also has a base control and this seemed perfect for that purpose(i prefer low base). I mainly use it with the tv or my laptop and it does the job very well. Mind you, if you looking for a sound system for a party, this is not strong enough for that and if it is on full blast, the sound is not perfect.

Hercules Speakers

jbarrett, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: Speakers arrived promptly,securely packed and intact. I tried them on my tv but they were not to my liking. The wires are too short and it's a fiddle having the on/off switch on the back of the sub woofer. The sound effect was not what I was looking for so I tried them on my pc. and they seem more suited to that, mostly because i rarely alter the volume when I'm working. over all, I think they are more suited to the pc..They look o.k.

Heavy Base

Dawn, Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: This is a smashing purchase. I now have it in my living room and attach them to my laptop as/when I want to have the cinematic or base like feel to a film or music. It's a mini powerhouse and I think value for money. In a previous review, I read that the blue light is on constantly - that's true. So if you're bothered re seeing a constant light then it may irritate you.. but... it's no biggie for me and Im happy with my purchase...

Best £40 I have ever spent, spectacular value.

Mr. David P. Malpass, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: Do you want big crystal clear sound for under £40? Yes? Then stop browsing and buy this speaker system now! I read every single review before buying these speakers and even that amount of positivity did not prepare me for just how awesome they are. Over the last few days I have put them through their paces with pretty much every musical genre from dub step to death metal, Jazz to folk and they have met every challenge and continue to impress me.
