The sound is good but...

  • Summary: The sound is good but on the back of the subwoofer where you plug in the two speakers the connection is loose and sound goes out if I bump with my foot.

Poor bass, really doesn't make sense while playing movie or games.

Ramesh, JBL

  • Excerpt: Bass is really disappointing. After reading all good reviews I purchase this speakers, but it was all different from what reviews said. Within 14 month the treble switch and the volume control touch has gone unresponsive. Now i can't even claim the 1 year limited warranty. Totally dissatisfied.

LESS POWER LOWER QUALITY

  • Summary: I've had three sets of the older version 2 model. They were fantastic. This new version is a lower power version and the clarity/quality of output is mediocre.

JBL sacrificing quality for aesthetics.

ATanner, Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: First off, I owned the Creature II speakers before these, and I absolutely loved them. After four years of great listening, I felt compelled to buy the Creature IIIs when the balance knobs on the Creature II started to get shaky and sometimes lost connection. Pros: These speakers look great and sound excellent at low-medium volume. Balance knobs work as they should.

cool looking speakers but not the sound quality I was hoping for out of JBL's

kathleen porter, Amazon

  • Summary: The cables are too short; there is limited space to put the speakers. Also, my husband and I have a JBL 7.1 stereo surround sound system that sounds great so I was hoping for better quality sound out of this system but it will do for good use with the computer.

It's too bad they don't sound nearly as good as they look..

Johnny C, Amazon
10 October 2011
  • Summary: I'm not an audiophile by any means, but I do enjoy good sound from quality speakers. I purchased the JBL Creature III right here off of Amazon strictly based on appearance and having a good experience with JBL speakers in the past. I needed a power boost from the low-level integrated speakers on my iMac. I have to admit, I was really disappointed once I received them. I knew that once I held the box (expecting to be heavy when in reality it was around 3lbs.

Can Fill a Room With Sound, Decent Quality, Bass Disappointing

Rebel L. Fornea, Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this item on Amazon for $67. For the price I paid, I think the value is decent. But I wouldn't pay more than that. These speakers can definitely fill a room with sound and the sound is decent. On the whole I am pleased with them, but the bass is disappointing. If bass is a big deal to you, get something else. If you just want a set of decent-sounding speakers that look really cool, these are worth considering.

Decent for the price

Chalberg, Amazon
30 December 2010
  • Summary: This speaker package is a great buy if your looking for external speakers for computer, TV or Ipod. Work great, easy to set up and use. Great bass and easily adjustable bass/treble buttons on sub woofer. After the first few days, rumbling started happening in the satellites even when the bass was turned all the way down. I think it's a defect in these specific speakers because they otherwise work great. returning and looking into buying a different pair.

Questionable quality

Dave, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: The AC adaptor shipped with this product quickly developed an awful high pitched buzz. I replaced it out of my own pocket after getting nowhere with JBL support. The sub has also started making a popping noise when playing anything with a bit of bass. Cant have it over about 25% volume before it starts doing this. If you're looking for something that will last, you should probably look elsewhere.

Great Product

Franky Man, Amazon

  • Summary: It's okay for daily use. However, If you are looking for a high performance speaker, better go for a higher output.
