Summary: The bass on this thing is awsome!! and the overall sound is good as well. I love the cylinder shape of the subwoffer its different from the regular square shape that you normally see with these systems and this was the main reason why i bought this product. The cords are suppppper long as well which is really good.
Summary: First of all. I am an EDM (Electronic Dance Music) fan. My music is all about untz untz untz... and more untz. I bought the Bose Companion 2 Series III from BestBuy and Z553 on amazon. I compared both products side by side. Bose didn't "wow" me. You cannot adjust the bass on the Companion 2, it has no subwoofer. The bass wasn't good at all. Z533 was pretty amazing. I paid $64.99. Bose was $99.99. Some people buy the product because its name. I spend money on the quality.
Summary: I brought these on sale at Best Buy for $44, the price they are at right now are a absolute rip off. ($110) Logitech have discontinued these, I will take a guess in my review why that happened.
Okay on to the actual review.
Hooked up to Creative ZxR.
Brought these purely based on looks and because it's Logitech, I like their products! The black and red matched my new PC theme.
Pros: Just about nothing besides the looks
Cons: Fatiguing, cables, sound in general, horrible placement of buttons
Summary: It seems the age of computer speakers is past, at least compared to their heyday around the turn of the millennium. Compared to the glut of choices with quality, features and speaker configuration from then...our choices seem pretty limited. It's nice to find that Logitech is still an excellent choice, though. I still use my old Logitech Z-5500 for my home theatre setup, and they still shake the room.
Summary: Judging by many reviews I read around the web, it seems like either some users had some unreal expectations about this product, or they have never owned PC speakers before. These speakers sound really good, especially considering the price point. Granted, I mostly use them to play videogames and maybe the ocassional song here and there, but they're worth the money in my opinion.
Summary: For $50 these things were the cats meow. I got these for myself after I saw they were marked down to $50. I needed a new set to replace my Logitech z230s They are very ample in sound - it's no Klipsch, but I can deal with it for $50. Best speaker I could find for this price range. You won't be unpleased. If you don't mind people coming around to your desk asking what you are planning to blow up - because these things look like a space monster gun or something out of MIB.
