Some absurd design flaws.

JORDAN F., Newegg
5 May 2015
  • Summary: Fire your incompetent engineers.
  • Pros: I'm sure it sounds great. Haven't heard it yet.
  • Cons: Okay, so first of all, there's no microphone jack on the speakers. Why not? This can't be that difficult to add to a speaker system. You want me to run my headphone cable to the right speaker and the mic cable to my tower, which has to stay on the left side? Yeah, good thinking, Logitech. Secondl...

Waste of Time

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Pros: Pros? I couldn't say. Looked nice. If only it worked.
  • Cons: This item was "refurbished"??? It had a loud buzz. Music was badly distorted and the left speaker didn't play at all.

DOA

Jean L., Newegg
18 December 2014
  • Summary: Now I must pay twenty bucks to ship it to CA if I want it replaced. Not worth it for what I paid. Cutting my losses now. I don't think it's fair I need to pay for return shipping when I received a defective product.
  • Pros: Cheaper than new
  • Cons: DOA

Spencer C., Newegg
22 November 2014
  • Summary: I eventually went with a creative 2.1 set for $40 and have been very happy with it, sound vs costs is fair and its performance is decent, NO BUZZ!
  • Pros: IF and when they work they sound AWESOME!! by far the best sounding 2.1 system out there...HOWEVER...read below:
  • Cons: sooner or later this set, I have 2, both of which have been replaced, this set will eventually malfunction and start a horrible BUZZ feedback noise...its super annoying and starts off low and gets super annoying as time goes by, the buzzing varies from the satellites HOWEVER both sets of the SUB ...

Unbalanced Sound

Weiwen G., Newegg
2 August 2014
  • Summary: Got cheated in to using google wallet via iOS check out, didn't get $15 discount.
  • Pros: Good looking.
  • Cons: It arrived with a dent on the front up right corner. Most importantly, It gives unbalanced sound. The left one gives much bigger sound than the right one. Even after I tried to enhanced the right one in Windows, they are still not balanced.

Logitech Z523

Danny L., Newegg
25 January 2014
  • Summary: It's not worth paying $90 for this abysmal Logitech Z523 with 360 Degree Sound Effect. It will never sound as good as Logitech Z313 and even Z623. Both Z323 and Z523 Speaker 2.1 uses 360 Degree Sound effect and both sounds very garbage! Don't ever buy this speaker again!
  • Pros: Decent Bass More RMS Power Bass Control & Volume Control
  • Cons: -Useless 360 Degree Sound -Horrible Humming, Buzzing, Harmonic Distortion sound effects -It makes loud buzzing sound as you increase volume up to around 40-50% -360 Degree Sound makes the worse sound quality I've ever heard in my entire life.

Horrible

Debbie T., Newegg
5 January 2014
  • Summary: These are a wasted of money. After half a year or so, in the middle of the night... the subwoofer would start emitting a loud low humming sound... PC is in bedroom, scary to be woken up by this... Anyway the humming sound would come and go, until basically it would not stop humming...
  • Pros: Uhmmmm, they have plugs and wires...?
  • Cons: Loud, humming sub woofer

Distortion abounds

JimS, reviews.logitech.com
31 October 2013
  • Summary: These speakers are no better than a cheap pair of no-name PC speakers. I can hear the mid and high distortion at only half volume. I see other reviews on here claiming good sound, but all I can say is keep your reciept. I am taking these back, and I bet the replacements won't be Logitech.
