"One of the best values today in computer speakers"
22 April 2010
Pros: Very clear. Seems to reproduce sound flatly (a good thing) and accurately The highs sound true and not overbearing. The mids/lows sound full and tight not 'loose' The real answer you're looking for, are they worth the $120 I paid? Yes. Very much so.
Cons: Stands are required for optimal sound or if space is at a premium on your desk. They really come to life when you connect them via USB Audio-Interface (cheap ones are about 100 bucks, but they're getting cheaper by the day) with RCA or TRS outputs.
Summary: I was looking for computer speakers with "true" sound and I got it. I already have my Polk Audio speakers for my stereo. These amazing little speakers could replace them! I mostly listen to "world" and streaming "deep-house" on my computer. WOW! Flip on the base boost for a subtle shift and that's all. Watched a PBS movie last night; crystal clear. Only downer (slight) is the vibration on my mouse with "subtle" base boost is engaged. Guess I'll just raise 'em up a bit.
