Pros: After researching speakers in this price range a lot of reviews revolved around this model and the Harmon Kardon Soundsticks. I had heard the soundsticks before but read that these were and equivalent and maybe a little better. I'm not sure they were better due to the Soundsticks being much loude...
Cons: Not my altec lansing speakers from 12 years ago.
Summary: Mine are connected to a headphone jack on a 32" TCL ROKU TV in one of my bedrooms. I am completely satisfied with the quality and output levels! This setup is really loud and crystal clear, even at high volume levels. The bass hits hard, with a punch and low boom.
Pros: -Heavy duty, well made. -BASS -Sub doesn't rattle. Not even if on a table/desk/shelf. -Easy to install. -Has RCA and 3.5mm inputs
Cons: -Somewhat weak mid-range, compared to the low end -Both speakers connect directly to the subwoofer. -Short cables -No treble control, only bass -Too much bass. Really!
Summary: You can minimize the gap in frequency response with a lot of time and effort on an equalizer, or you can just decide to buy different speakers. I'd highly recommend that you just buy different speakers.
Pros: They have a good subwoofer I guess?
Cons: I've used logitech speakers for 10+ years. They've all had their minor nuances, but it's never been something you couldn't overcome with a few minutes and a software equalizer. These speakers are exceptional in their inability to play sounds in the low mid-range (just above the subwoofer's range)...
Summary: They would get a perfect rating for me due to the price to performance but just not digging the control module being attached to a speaker incase something happens. If you want some serious audio for a PC setup or personal HTPC without breaking the bank then give these a shoot.
Pros: Comparing these to a old Z-5300 set I was expecting the bass to not be as bassy as the 5300's but lack the umph when needed and boy was I wrong. Listening to NIN Downward Spiral, AC/DC High Voltage, and Dream Theater Train of Consequence for my testing and these speakers just feel tighter but can...
Cons: It would be nice if the cables were a little bit longer so I could mount them above my monitors and not a fan of the control module being installed on the right speaker.
Summary: I've had them since January of 2011 and have since upgraded many components in my gaming desktop but have never once even considered replacing these.
Pros: Fantastic, crisp, huge sound. Bass is insane! I have a friend that makes electronic music and sometimes comes over specifically to see what his music sounds like on my speakers. Best computer speakers I've ever heard. I've had them for almost 5 years now and I have ALMOST no complaints.
Cons: Mild crackling when adjusting the volume via the knob, but eh. That only really happens at the lowest of volumes anyway.
Summary: I got these to replace a tried & true Klipsch THX 2.1 set w/ subwoofer that I had for 14+ yrs (subwoofer finally gave out) & Logitech came thru w/ a winner here, especially w/ the subwoofer performance....the bass response is just BEAUTIFUL!
Pros: Good looking set Good clean sound reproduction EXCELLENT subwoofer performance Good price
Summary: Sounds slightly better than the Z-2300 but doesn't play as loud which is why I wanted to give it a 4.5 egg rating but the site won't let me do half an egg rating so i gave it a 5 egg rating. Overall an exceptional product.
Pros: Exceptional, balanced sound and can almost play at concert volumes, even then there is little distortion. Controls are in the right place (no more fumbling for the subwoofer bass control and no desktop clutter)
Cons: Doesn't play as loud as the unit that it replaced, the Logitech Z-2300.
Summary: I recently bought these speakers to serve as my office speakers. I do have the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1 system as well serving as my garage sound system when working on cars, so I'll be comparing the klipsch and logitech units. Lets start with their packaging.
