    5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Amazing 10 Sep 2004
    By ISSean
    Verified Purchase
    The first thing you notice about these speakers when removing from the box is the feeling of weight and quality. As they are transparent, even the insides have to be very neat and well put together. Set up is a doddle, plug the sub into the PC and the satellites into the sub. The cables are all quite thick and seem to be better quality than the average bell-wire you normally find with PC stuff.
    The sub has its own volume control (a turn dial) and the speakers have fancy touch sensitive buttons. There is no on/off switch; they stay on the whole time with the sub giving off a lovely pale blue glow at night.
    Playing MP3's over the speakers they sound very punchy and lively, much better than anything else I have had. I bought these speakers after becoming tired of replacing burnt out cheap and even not-so-cheap ones from other well known brands and I am very glad I did. They look as good as they sound!
    There is no headphone socket but this is not an issue for me. the touch buttons, although very cool can catch you out as there is no visual reference of where the sound is as you power up so remember to have your finger on the 'volume down' button late at night just in case.
    Don't buy ugly black or beige speakers, buy these or the surround sound equivalent from Harman / Kardon...............they are in a different league to anything else I have heard.

    5.0 out of 5 stars These are great! 16 Oct 2005
    By T. Winn
    I was looking for some speakers to use with my iPod. I tried all of the set ups in the Apple Store, including the Bose Soundock etc, before concluding that these are far and away the best. The eclipse system might be better (I don't know - they didn't have one in the store), but it's also TEN times the price if you include a sub-woofer). I didn't like the look of these, but the sound completely converted me. I have them set up permanently with my computer and they are GREAT. Easily worth twice as much as the JBLs. Clear, good positioning and nice tight bass. Having bought them, I decided I didn't need the 750 stereo system, I'd been looking at. If you are serious about the music on your computer, get these!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! The only word to describe them 20 Jan 2005
    By Danny
    I just recieved these and was reluctant to buy them in the first place. I originally was looking at the JBL Creature II. These got much better reviews so i decided to spend the extra and go for these. When i got them out of the box i was amazed. Excellent Sound. I can make the keyboard of my iMac G5, bounce. My mate brought his Creatures round and we plugged them into the computer. He was bragging about the sound and then i plugged these in. They blew him away. Awesome!!!!!!!

    By A. Butterfield TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

    These speakers get such rave reviews wherever you look that you’ll expect them to be pretty amazing.
    In many ways they are. They look amazing, for a start, all transparent and space age, and nicely built. The satellites look particularly good, and you can angle them easily. It’s odd that the little blue globules inside the satellites don’t light up like the ones in the subwoofer though.
    The subwoofer is too good-looking to be hidden under a desk, but that’s where the instructions recommend you put it.
    There are rather a lot of wires: one for the power cord, one to your computer, another to the satellite connector, and then cables from that to the satellites themselves.
    But it all worked once I plugged it in, and my immediate feeling was disappointment. I thought they sounded quite ragged. But… taking note of something I read, I let them play to themselves for a few hours. I also fiddled a lot with the volume controls (a knob on the subwoofer and a pair of annoying touch sensors on the base of one of the satellites).
    Turn the volume on the sub above about ten percent and you get lots of bass, but none of it very nice. The resonances drown out bits of the music and sound awful. This may vary depending on your room and particularly your floor of course.
    I’m used to a carefully set up, neutral-sounding hi-fi separates system. Some people suggest these speakers sound as good as a hi-fi – they don’t. Nowhere near.
    But once I’d set the sub and satellite volumes to my liking (the sub volume way, way down) they sounded pretty good.
    Vocals are projected very strongly by the four drivers in the satellites, and for a lot of music this is quite a good thing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars I still like my Soundsticks 19 Jun 2007
    By M. Williams TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    I've had my Soundsticks for over a year now and continue to be very happy with them. I still like the way they look and they function flawlessly.

    The sound quality when turned up loud is perfectly acceptable, but what I really like about these speakers is that I can play music late at night very quietly without disturbing the family, and they still sound great!

    I feel slightly ashamed that I had to read the instruction manual to figure out how the volume controls work.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Harman/Kardon Speakers 25 Jun 2005
    Verified Purchase
    Wow!!! What can I say, these little speakers are not only as funky as anything you are likely to see on the market, but produce an amazing high quality, rich, bassy sound, when attached to my PC. The bass may be a bit much for some people, but I love a big bassy sound so they are perfect for my requirements. To think such an amazing sound comes out of speakers 10" tall and 2.5" wide is phenomenal. I am totally blown away. I can use them with my iPod as well as my PC. OK they are not really portable, as the alienesque subwoofer certainly doesn't fit into your pocket, but if you wish to listen to music on your iPod in your room, then these are ideal. The subwoofer has a funky blue light, which makes it look as though it is from outer space. If you are looking for excellent speakers at a medium price, then these are for you - don't think twice - BUY THEM!
