Excerpt: At $159.95, the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 is the least expensive speaker in this survey. A popular choice at Circuit City and Best Buy, it is also something of a standard-bearer for mass-market offerings.
Summary: Purchased these this week, and had them replaced with another set - which exhibited the same flaw.
Two may be a curse, but they both did the same thing so I would be wary.
When on standby, the speakers issued a very low sounding 'ticking' sound (every 3 seconds or so), and the subwoofer exhibited a...
Pros: Large desktop speakers. A definite improvement from standard speakers
Cons: No way to turn off the speakers from the controller. Makes "popping" noises when on standby. Plastic (cheap) enclosure for the satellites.
Summary: I bought this for $200 back when there weren't very many choices for computer speakers, and I've never even considered using headphones. Now they have depreciated to under $100.
First, at the time, they were good.
Summary: These speakers are just amazing! It's vented side firing 6.5'' subwoofer makes great room shaking bass! It has a THX certification which means it the top of the line sound quallity. These speakers have enough power to power a huge room! Highly Reccomended!
Pros: earth shattering volume, big booming, high quality sound
Summary: I am not sure when I bought them. It was around 4-5 years ago. Either 2005-2006. SO I have have been using these for about 3 years. I got the logitech z5500s last year because I wanted more bass so my girlfriend now uses these. And I must say.
Summary: Before I got these, I got a 5.1 system by Logitech that was about 50$ cheaper. They died for no reason about a week after I brought them home. Took them back to the store and shelled out the extra bucks for a brand known for making qualilty speakers. I was not disappointed.
Summary: Got these babies open box from ebay for a hundred smackers, can't beat it.
The bass is AWESOME. Notes go waaaay down low, not the tightest I've heard from subwoofers but still sounds great with plenty of subbass grunt to make anything with lots of bass sound .
Pros: Great bass, fun sound, expandable to 5.1, sound awesome right out of the iMac
Summary: I picked up a pair of these speakers while I was going through college. I used them in a dorm room for my laptop. Being that they weren't terribly expensive I wasn't sure what to expect. They sounded amazing.
Pros: sound, easy to access aux input, long cables
Summary: I'd been looking for some speakers for a while, I just never wanted to commit to any until I was sure what I wanted. I had read a few reviews about these before I bought mine, and it was pretty much nothing but good about them.
