  • Conclusion: The audio characteristics are coloured by the vented wooden subwoofer which Hercules claims gives a rich deep tone.

Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speakers Review

5 July 2009
  • Summary: First Looks The 8W satellites are glossy black with orange cones. The left speaker is bare, while the right speaker bears the volume control knob on the front and the headphone and input on the side. The 16W subwoofer is fairly simple in design compared to its associated satellites. It has a black matte finish. The rear has a knob for adjusting the bass, an input for the left speaker, a power switch, and a power connector.

Hercules XPS 2.1 50

PC Magazine
22 April 2009
  • Conclusion: The XPS 2.1 50 is certainly affordable for a system with a subwoofer, but Hercules has made better-sounding speakers—for exactly the same price.
  • Pros: Very affordable. Attractive design. Decent audio quality at moderate volume levels.
  • Cons: Subwoofer not very powerful; distorts. Right-hand speaker is hardwired to sub. No remote.

Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speaker Kit

Testfreaks blog
13 February 2009
  • Conclusion: The Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speaker Kit is not a bad product, especially if you consider they can be had for around $50, for that price they deliver decent sound. For me personally they just don’t cut it, they sound a bit flat to my ears, there’s just not enough treble or highs in the music and or audio.
  • Pros: Seem well made, Decent sound overall, Inexpensive, Good bass
  • Cons: Highs not very pronounced, Additional Cost -Must buy adapters for certain configurations, Cords are a bit short

  • Excerpt: The very first product I took a look at from Hercules was the Game Theater XP sound card quite a few years ago. At the time this was the sound card to have and helped build a great reputation for the company. Some water has passed under the bridge since then and Hercules now has a brand new line-up of exciting products to show off.

9 speakersets getest: een nieuw geluid

20 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Geluid bij de PC lijkt een sluitstuk op de begroting: een goede headset volstaat voor velen. Toch is de meerwaarde van goede speakers moeilijk te onderschatten. We testten 9 sets.
