Good sound, wiring set up could use slight modification, worth what you pay

Summary: The Logitech S220 Computer Speakers system is good, but there are a few things that brought out an inner demon in me. To make it short and sweet, the wiring is a little messy, was getting tangled within 3 minutes of set up. Now this could be on the way I have the system set up so I'm not going to whine about it.
Summary: Really impressive sound for the price. I was looking for a good pair of speakers to use with my macbook while its plugged into my TV. Like I said I was surprised at the amount of sound these little speakers put out. Only thing I wish they had a USB connection.
Summary: I paid 15 bucks for these in a sale, regular price is somewhere around 30 - 40 dollars. I needed a simple pair of speakers for a computer, so I had really no expectations. I figured these would outperform s simple 2.0 that was priced the same even worse.
Now i seriously underestimated the sound coming out as it turns out this is quite a capable system. Sound is pretty detailed, bass has some punch, given the small size of the sub so there is a lot of value.
Pros: Price, surprisingly good sound, adequate bass at medium and low volume, wired volume remote

Excerpt: Like many Logitech input devices, the value of these speakers is exceptional. Here are a few things I like about them. First, they look much more appealing than many other speakers in its price range. It is a 2.1 system which means that there are two speakers plus a subwoofer. the outer casing of the speakers appears glossy black and the subwoofer is more of a matte black.
Good subwoofer, good price, poor speaker performance.

Summary: The subwoofer was nice for the price. There is a bass volume control on the back of the sub. I like the wired remote volume control, it has input for headphones and a microphone. The speakers, however, are a different story. They buzzed and distorted at all volume levels. Really BAD sound. I plugged them into 2 different devices to be sure it was the speakers. The speakers plug into a phono jack on the sub.
Summary: I am shocked at what sound comes out of these little things. The wired remote is a huge benefit! The bass control on the back of the sub is a little odd - doesn't make placement of speakers any easier. The power cord is a little short, but it'll do. I give it 4/5 as it was cheap and sounds great for what it is. What makes them better is a good sound card though and switching up the EQs. Kinda flat, but couldn't notice much.
Solid product, quality production at a great value.

Summary: These speakers are a great affordable 2.1 add-on to give your desktop a fuller sound. Not only from the subwoofer adding to the low-end, but the satellites offer clean mid-range and a crisp upper range. The functionality of the wired remote, offering volume, a power switch, and inputs for both microphone and headphones is top shelf. The subwoofer also comes with a gain control of sorts, allowing you to cater the bass to your specific needs easily.
Summary: My goal was to get the best universal sound that allowed me to watch both movies and listen to music without the need to make individual adjustments for each. My built-in sound card is a Realtek, and it comes with a sound manageror Audio manger application that allows adjustments of many things. Other sound cards should have something similar. The one setting you want to adjust is the Equalizer. I found the Jazz preset gave the best results with these speakers.
