Summary: ABSOLUTE FRUSTRATING JUNK. Great sound in a compact setup. Unfortunately, the speakers are frustrating to use when they mute when sound input level is below a threshold. The speakers enter a "power-save" mode and mute when sound produced by my computer is below a level - unfortunately that level is...
They cheapened the product from Creature II - don't buy

Summary: I had a creature II and it was much more powerful and high quality. This Creature III is much smaller, and flimsy, and the sound feels very cheap and not deep. I will return this equipment, do not buy it!!!
Summary: Im very disappointed in these speakers. Jbl is my favorite brand cause they always sound good, not so in this case. It sounds like $20 dollar computer speakers very low in sound & the bass is very distorted . I believed the good reviews but some people are just satisfied with junk sometimes.
Summary: I bought this speaker during the 2011 thanksgiving sales from amazon for about 69.99usd. The speaker's quality is good, the sound is crispy everything is fine except the "innovative volume controller". The control button is not sensitive enough.
Summary: I do have very good experience with JBL products, but this one isn't good at all. Only reason. Very poor, weak sound. Worse than comp buil in speakers. Maybe because bad repairing job - refurbished.
JBL Creature III Right Satellite creating many problems.

Summary: The sound on these speakers is really quite nice, I have no real complaints about that - although they are a tad bit soft - but then I'm not trying to go deaf myself either. The trouble I am having is with the right satellite - which is producing a tenth of the volume that is being produced by the...
Summary: I loved them at first, for the price, they fit my needs and the sound was really good. But then, around 6 months after buying them, the left speaker all of a sudden started to short out, and the volume buttons wouldn't work on that speaker as well.
Summary: I purchased these speakers a year-and-a-half ago and was initially very pleased with them. They sounded great and looked nice and didn't take up too much space. My only initial complaint was that the "innovative touch controls for the volume" were slightly awkward to use.
JBL Creature III poor quality compared to JBL Creature I

Summary: Naturally after super satisfactory time with JBL Creature I, I checked the reviews out, and purchased JBL Creature III. The weight of III over I has gone down substantially by about 50 percent, about normal for new products, what not normal is the poor quality and wonky connectors.
