Decent speakers bad function with design not being able to disable energy saver.

Danny, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: Satellite speakers have a higher tin-like (high treble) output but generally acceptable for a 2.1 computer speaker. The one thing I wish I knew in advance was that there is a energy saving feature that you cannot turn off so if the speakers do not detect any volume it stays off. Good for power but not good for quick sounds from the computer like alerts, notifications that do not give the speakers enough time to come out of sleep mode.

Definitely not as good as the Creature 2

Amazon Customer, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I have the Creature 2 and I bought the Creature 3 for my boyfriend. The Creature 2 is excellent, it's solid, sound is great and has lasted for over 6 years. The Creature 3 is much lighter, feels cheaper, and the subwoofer rattles when you play very base heavy music or sounds, even with the base turned down to the lowest setting. It seems ok on anything that does not require heavy base. Returned the Creature 3, wish they still made the Creature 2.

Great sound, keeps breaking

Mario, Amazon
11 July 2013
  • Summary: This is my second set of creature speakers, I had the Creature II first and loved them (the sound was great) but one of the little speakers quit working. I had them for quite a while so I thought I would buy a new set. I got the Creature III and the same thing has happened, these little speakers have a wonderful sound and look cool but that doesn't mean much of they keep breaking. DIssapointing.

  • Summary: I bought this sound because of the quality and purity that the JBL is, but to my surprise, to turn on the sound, I noticed that the bass was distorted and sond sizzling.

1 Year Old And...

Carpe Diem, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • Summary: right from the beginning I have had problems with this speaker. I had a roommate that had the creature II and they sounded great which is what caused me to want to get a set for myself. I bought the CreatureIII in November of 2011 and now January 2013 I cant stand these. From the very beginning even to today the sound has always sounded good, HOWEVER, if you even slightly touch one of the satellites that speaker will go out. And God forbid if you touch the subwoofer.

Excellent until it broke

BeingQuaBeing, Amazon
25 September 2011
  • Summary: I was extremely happy with this product, which I paid less than $70 for. It was sleek, lightweight, and portable. For the price, it delivered a crisp sound with amazing bass tones. I've had it for 3 months, and now the "audio in" is such that one must fiddle with the cable in order for all of the sound to register. I used this product as anyone would, so I feel comfortable saying that this is an indication of poor quality. When it works, it's great.

Should Re-consider

high voltage, Amazon
4 April 2011
  • Summary: Originally i thought judging by the specs that this product would last. Well,I was definetly wrong. Out of the box it had a nice sleek appearance, and I really liked the ability to increase the volume directly from the subwoofer. I noticed after powering it up it had some kind of loud feedback sound being generated...Hmm...Shut it off, and re-started my pc, making sure the sound level was completly minimized!

Died after 9 months

Jonathan Bovin, Amazon
9 February 2011
  • Summary: The subwoofer died after 9 months of moderate use. The sound was decent but nothing to brag about. I liked the fact that the speakers were small and took up litle space. Unfortunately, the subwoofer has died. I've never owned a set of speakers/subwoofer that lasted for such a short amount of time. I paid twice what amazon is charging now. They may be worth the asking price now but definately not worth risking 130 bucks.

more sizzle than steak

Magnus, Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: I read the reviews here and thought that these speakers were made by elves or something. I skip to the good part and tell you these things look a lot better than they sound. Aesthetics: They look good. The price for the good looks is that they have a larger footprint than they really need to have, but I knew that up front. Fair warning.
