Great for rock or FPS games, too base heavy for classical or soft vocals.

Summary: The speakers seem to favor bass more then treble as they produce very powerful booming sound when when playing rock, alternative, or even some classical music pieces. Not to say they can't reproduce finer pitch sounds; when only string instruments are playing, most people will still be able to hear the strums of a guitar or the reverberation of a violin but these get drowned out by the heavier instruments, like cellos or especially drums which are both bass heavy.
"Excellent sound, musical, highly detailed and clear ."

Pros: can fill a small listening area with deep, realistic music, when properly placed and situated vis-a-vis walls and furniture.
Cons: Trouble with the control pod under the right speaker. The original began to get noisy after a few months, had to be replaced. The replacement came n/c, which was nice, but on two more occasions the unit has broken up, making the sound unpleasant.
Summary: I work in the fields of audio and video so I know a few things about good speakers and bad ones. I had never heard of Klipsch before about 6 years ago when my college roommate and I wanted to build desktops. When we got around to speakers I told him that I had a cheap Altec set that I was happy with but after much kicking and screaming he convinced me to go with a pair of "real" speakers. As soon as I got them I loved them, the highs mids and bass are all crisp and rich.
Summary: This set of speakers is hands down the BEST PC speakers you will ever hear.I've had this brand for years and this is my second set. The first set had a main power cable break off from the sub-woofer. I couldn't repair it so I tossed them when I moved from Florida to Ky. As soon as I moved and set up my PC, I found another set just like my old ones. These were going for 5 years until I decided to rewire my system and yet again the cable broke on the sub-woofer.
