Summary: This will be a bit of a longer review. I bought these on dec 10 2011. And today, dec 27 2014 they were taken out of production. The high pitched whine was apparent from a year ago, but I just turned down the treble and volume and it was fine.
I bought this set Sony 2.1 Personal Speakers (Black) 2011 and STILL SOUND GREAT!
2 May 2014
Summary: I bought this set Sony 2.1 Personal Speakers (Black) back in 2011 and my set STILL SOUNDS GREAT! Everyone has a sound they are looking for, and for me I got lucky and found that right sound here.
Summary: Marketed for gamers, this unit also provides a very good HDTV listening experience without having to drop a fortune on an entertainment theater package. Light, crisp, with adjustable powered sub woofer for warm sound on the lower end.
Summary: The Good: Crazy good bass for a desktop set. It looks pretty cool and it pretty responsive. There isn't any lag like my old logitechs. Works well for music and games. The Bad: The sub for this is freaking massive. Like seriously. Think big then multiply that by 1.5x.
Summary: These speakers have AMAZING bass control. Deliver clear, crisp sound, and I was surprised by how loud they could be without making that weird "crackling" noise that speakers sometimes do. I've been blasting them for a year now, and still in great shape. Best speaker system I've purchased.
Summary: I had these speakers for about 8 months. They worked very well and sounded great up until the left speaker died. Tried tinkering around with it quite a bit, but to no avail. Disappointed it died so fast, as these were satisfactory otherwise.
Summary: If you're interested in this sound system 2.1 you should get it. I had a logitech 2.1 and I thought it hit hard. When my roommate wanted to buy it I ended up selling it to him. I looked everywhere and did research for nice better sound systems.
Summary: For the prices these are great. Sony is known to produce good quality and these show. The BASS Speaker is kinda big. About the size of a Mini-Tower computer but it needs to be to give good bass. Good connected and I love the RCA connectors on back that come with the 1/8" built in cable.
Summary: It is a good product for the price, however if you are looking for a good set of quality sounding speakers these are not what you want. They sound decent with the subwoofer, but not what I really wanted. The satellites are nothing more than boom box speakers from the 90s.
