Summary: I had a pair of Logitech X-230 till the transformer inside started buzzing. Went to get these speakers the Z523 only to be totally disappointed by the sound, the mids are terrible, it sounds kinda metallic and not really there, so i went on and fixed my old X-230 which are awesome compared to these. Now the Z523 sit in a corner collecting dust. Bring back the old line for 2.1 these ones are terrible Logitech and they don`t server well for your name.
Summary: these things are great! you wont blow the roof off but they sound very clean at high levels. I cant even turn them all the way up when im at my computer, but when im in the next room and want VERY loud music they will always accomplish this with pretty good quality, like a 7 out of 10, and the bass is really awesome!!! The bass is super deep and rich for a unit of this price.
Summary: Very disappointed !!, December 12, 2013 I ordered this for Christmas - when I received the item, I heard a 'loose rattling' noise inside the Logitech box - I thought it may have been just the factory-packaged wiring loose inside. I opened to check and to my chagrin, it wasn't any packaged wiring making the rattling sound at all, rather it was something inside the subwoofer itself ! When I lifted the sub out of the box, it sounded like some sort of plating (and a screw?
Summary: Omg I love these speakers. I wish I had bought these to begin with I love the fact that you can control the bass and if you like your music loud these are the speakers for you. No distortion at all.
Summary: I was very excited to get these speakers and very disappointed when they came. I love Logitech and prefer them for all of my peripherals, but these were a huge letdown. I received a horrible humming feedback when I first plugged them in. I unplugged the 9-pin connector and reseated it, screwing it ALL the way in. This took care of the hum; however as soon as my foot touched the slack cable, the humming came back.
Summary: I've had these for a couple of years and they're still going strong, though I'm about to replace them. Note that if you plug these directly into your computer and use no EQ, they're miserable to listen to. Here's my setup: -Coaxial digital from the computer sound card to a cheap but good DAC -Optical digital from the TV/monitor to the DAC for listening to HDMI devices (cable box and game console) -From the DAC I run high quality (but still cheap) cables to the...
Summary: I bought these when they were $100 and I'm still happy with them even for that price! Sound quality is very good for the price, but they have "360 degree speakers" meaning the main speakers have rear facing drivers as well. This creates an interesting auditory effect when placed in my bookshelf spaces, I would describe it as increasing the sound stage but it sounds as if the sound is not coming directly from the speakers themselves.
