  • Summary: this is basically gonna be a bose bashing review praising better audio equipment for the price.bose sound like 50 dollar headphones while these sound almost like a q40 from maudio.the highs on these are slightly too much though so an amp would make these sound exactly like the q40. you can mix pretty well with these, on bose you'll have trouble because the frequencies on that thing are messy without an amp which they trick you with at bestbuy hooked up 24/7.klipsch has 2...

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.

Sound great, but packaging

Ofelia Chernock, Amazon

  • Summary: These speakers sound great and are certainly worth the money. The reason for a 4-star (instead of 5) is that they didn't seem like "Like New" condition to me. The speaker stands were bent and "original packaging" mean they did a half-hearted job of wrapping in bubble wrap and shoving in a damaged box (albeit an original box).

Great product but a bit unevenly balanced

  • Summary: This is a wonderful set of speakers. I'm using them in my library and they completely fill a very large room. Delivery was fast and they arrived in good condition. Set-up was simple and quick. Sync went without a hitch. Two minor quibbles - first, the power switch is on the rear of the subwoofer, which is very awkward to reach if the subwoofer is placed where it will be most effective.

Excellent sound, musical, highly detailed and clear .

  • Summary: The control pod seems to be a quality control issue. I had to call QC and complain; they responded by sending replacements n/c. But this needs a permanent solution. When the pod was working, the sound was quite musical and detailed, and easily filled my office space with deep, rich sound. I like classical music: the Klipsch excells in solo instrumentals, vocals, but not quite as good conveying the heft of a full orchestra .
  • 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.

Pretty Good

  • Summary: There are times at louder volumes that the speakers begin to sound really distorted but honestly unless they are being used for a party they should never get that loud anyways

BEST computer speakers

willdearbornofnewcannan, Ebay

  • 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.

klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Wireless Speakers

College Boy, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: These speakers are amazing! The price may be a deterrent but trust me they are worth it. If your looking for great sound quality along with volume plus that extra kick from a sub, then these speakers are what you are looking for. I am constantly being told by my RAs here in my dorm to turn my bass down due to it rattling the items in my neighbors room. The wireless part is the best but has two small flaws.

You MUST buy this!

  • 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.
