Excerpt: Let's get this out of the way right up front so your expectations are in line: these are introductory-level 2.1 speakers, two satellites and a sub-woofer, that have an MSRP price of $99 USD but retail for around $60-$70 USD .
Excerpt: Logitech is best known for being at the top of the peripherals market with their stellar mice and keyboards. Their forays into the world of sound, however, have been noted as somewhat hit and miss.
Pros: Sleek, compact design is a real space-saver., Excellent sounding system for a very affordable price., Practical design makes it a pleasure to use., It’s Logitech – you really can’t go wrong.
Cons: You’re not going to get the same amount of immersion you would from a 5.1 or greater system – but you shouldn’t expect to.
Summary: For a 2.1 computer speaker set up that cost £40 (UK) this I think is as good as it gets. Decent range, strong bass when required, though can get boomy if placed incorrectly or the bass is whacked up. Perfectly good for youtubing, games and impromtu listening sessions.
Conclusion: The Logitech Z-4 should be at the top of your list of <$100 speaker systems if you’re in the market for a good 2.1 setup. All the major design flaws of the previous generation have been addressed, resulting in a truly consumer-friendly design.
Pros: Great sound clarity; appealing aesthetics; decent volume
