Summary: The sound overall is good. The main complaint is that when the volume goes up, the distortion from the sub-woofer becomes obvious and annoying. Good for normal computer music (i.e. Pandora) but in my opinion it would not be good for movies (have not used for that).
Summary: sounds amazing! and now that the price has dropped these are by far the best speakers for the money. big bass fans might be disappointed but those of us who enjoy hearing our music and not just booom boom boom booooooom! will be very happy with the sound.
Summary: As previous reviewers have mentioned, the speakers aren't "loud". Coming from a perspective of my Klipsch 2.1 setup, the Logitech definitely can not compete with the loudness. With that said however, depending on your requirements, these can be perfect; I wanted something for a small studio apartment setup. The sound is rounded out enough to make listening very pleasurable and fairly accurate without too much worry of disturbing neighbors.
Summary: I bought this for my home theater and it sounds realy crisp. The only things that I hate is when you mount it to the wall the speaker only points in one direction. Also it is easy to scrach. I would recomed this product for people who want mostly sound not bass.
Summary: I'm a musician, and an audiophile. While these will never replace my far larger living room stereo, this is a pretty nice speaker set. I read a fair number of negative reviews for this product, but purchased them anyway. I'm thrilled with my decision. There's definitely something to be said; his speaker set is not designed for large rooms. However, it's PERFECT for my use, which is as an office/bedroom sound system.
Nice speakers and good sound but wrongly advertised and did not work at first
10 November 2013
Summary: I was not happy with the product when I first got them at all. When I first plugged them in only one channel worked. Not only did they not work but the shipping slip said that they were refurbished but my receipt from amazon specifically said that they were new. Because they were refurbished they were scuffed and scratched all over. Eventually I was able to figure out why only one channel was working.
Summary: The Logitech Z553 Speaker System offers a great-sounding audio system for your PC or Mac. Pros: 1) The audio is clean and crisp proving accurate sound. 2) Very striking modern design. 3) Easy to set up. 4 Offers up to 3 inputs. 5) Adjustable speakers move left, right, up or down. Cons: 1) Bass sound is not very noticeable. 2) No remote included. 3) Sound loud, but not booming. Not usable for use by large groups or rooms. 4) Logitech says can be used for TVs as well.
