You get what you pay for...

Luke, Amazon
25 March 2016
  • Summary: The Logitech z523 is a great set of speakers with a few shortcomings that demolish my better opinion for this product. Pros: Great bass, sound controls all on one speaker, amplifier built-in to subwoofer, sound bigger than it looks.

Worked good the few times I used them

Timothy H., Newegg
1 July 2015
  • Summary: Something to note is that I barely used these at all. I think I dusted them off more than actually using them. Probably less than 15 times they were used in the course of three years. Despite this they managed to go back, pretty sad.
  • Pros: The quality was good, no issues with ridiculous cord lengths or odd setups.
  • Cons: None, beyond the fact my right speaker decided to become more quiet than the left. Not the normal issues like most would have (one speaker not working for example). All efforts to fix this issue failed and I would have certainly sent this back in for replacement. However this conveniently happene...

Subwoofer buzzes during certain sounds.

Erik, Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: I was pretty upset. I was really planning on enjoying this, but the subwoofer gives this terribly annoying buzzing sound at certain notes that I can't get rid of. It started doing it right off the bat. No return policy though.

Disappointed...

MARILYN D., Staples
3 February 2014
  • Summary: I had a pair of Altec Lansing speakers that I had for years and was very happy with. The "pin" plug was flawed, and I made the mistake of taking it out, and then couldn't get it back in and jacked up all the pins.

Great Sound, as Long as You Never Touch the 9-Pin

kdt05b, Logitech
6 December 2013
  • 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.

Satellites and sub-woofer do not match.

Zippy1970, CNET
20 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought these for my daughter's PC. I really like Logitech hardware (I'm using their keyboards, mice, controllers like joystickes, gamepads and steering wheel) so I was expecting something that would sound as good as (or better than) the Creative speakers I have hooked up to my own PC.
  • Pros: Attractive. Easy setup.
  • Cons: Bass way to loud, combination missing a whole spectrum of frequencies, satellites sound like cheap dollar store speakers.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

Matthew P., Newegg
23 April 2013
  • Pros: They sounded great for awhile.
  • Cons: After just about a year, the right speaker has begun popping, hissing, crackling, and otherwise cutting out. I haven't moved the speakers since plugging them in a year ago--just poor build quality on Logitech's part. Seems that most of their products give out after about a year.

Unlike Bose, there are lows, but no highs

Terry Williams, Amazon

  • Summary: I would recommend spending twice the money for a totally better sound and would recommend Altec Lansing VS4221 2.1 Speaker System Music & Gaming System with Remote

User Review

Matthew G., Newegg
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Perhaps it's just my specific set of speakers, but I would not recommend these to anyone.
  • Pros: The bass is very good, can be turned up quite loud, and it worked for my needs of being able to hook AV into it.
  • Cons: It isn't clear or crisp at all on both my PC and Xbox. No matter how I try to adjust this it doesn't seem to want to be clear, everything sounds "blurred" with this setup.

a lot to be desired, disappointing

Tilley in a Canoe, Staples
12 August 2012
  • Summary: I purchased these speakers to upgrade from an inexpensive set we had. The sound was awful. The bass was very "Muddy", and the rest was not very clear. It felt like they were muffled from another room.
