Upon first glance of the Creature Speakers, you wouldn't be a fool for thinking you'd encountered something from Star Wars. However, stick a pair next to your Mac, and suddenly you've got your own contemporary art installation project.
The unique cone-shape Sub-woofer and mini-cone 'Satellite' speakers aren't the only aspect of this product to grab your attention either. The sound quality is fantastic. Whether it's a bass-ridden house track or a DVD, the output of those little blighters is amazing.
Not only does the JBL Creature II system represent excellent design, sound quality, but most importantly, excellent value for money!

Verified Purchase
This speaker system is a great choice for any PC or MAC. It has great looks and sound quality to match - and at a price where you don't feel you are paying a premium for design.
The three speakers are a wonderful compliment to a computer because they break up the boring monotony of grey boxes that most computers are made up of. The design of these speakers is excellent, but what may not have been mentioned elsewhere is that the build quality is top notch, I would expect that these speakers will last a lifetime (should you wish it).
The sound is great, and works well with all types of music, games and movies. Bare in mind though, they are not surround sound - they are just a stereo system with a seperate bass speaker. Also you need to be aware that these are really only for computer use. You could use them with a TV for programmes, films and games consoles - but only if you are in a small room sat quite close (or if you dislike a high volume) because the upper volume is not that high. Put it this way if you are in student accomodation they are fine for a bedroom, but if you live in an open New York loft apartment they will not cut the mustard.
in summary a great set of speakers, designed primarily for use with a computer or any other stereo (small jack input) source where a powerful output is not required.

Although JBL's three-piece Creature may not look like any set of speakersyou've ever seen, its high-quality sound is easy to recognize. Itsfull-range sound allows a complete range of tones across all kinds ofmusic.
The Creature looks like some futuristic object manifested in a largecurved bulge resembling Inky, Blinky, Pinky, and/or Clyde (you know, thePacMan monsters). Clearly the audio engineers took a design note fromApple on this one-the Creature complements the iMac's clean and polishedlook.
On the 9-inch woofer are two bullet-shaped dials for bass and treble.Conveniently placed small notches let you easily balance both dials in themiddle for a solid combination. Even at high volumes, the woofer handlesdeep tones very well and didn't give me any distortion.
The tweeters' substantial sound surprised me, given that they're onlyabout 1 inch in diameter. The left speaker sports a unique andhigh-quality volume control: one small metallic button crescendos thesound, and another lowers it. Touching both buttons at the same time mutesthe whole system until you press that combination again, a feature thatimpressed me.
Overall the trio packs a lot of punch. Listening to a rap CD, we couldclearly distinguish a subtle stopwatch ticking underneath a heavy bassline, a sound that comes out as distortion-or doesn't come out at all-onother small speakers. If you don't mind paying a premium for a greatdesign, the Creature is for you. But when compared with a pair of speakersthat cost a fifth the price, they're not five times better.

This is got to be one of the best buys i have made, i use this 2.1 system in conjunction with my ipod and laptop by using a splitter cable. My music and movie experiences have been terrific, compared to a previous setup i had. This speaker system can be used with anything with a headphone socket, i even use it with my tv, just make sure it has stereo sound otherwise it will play 2.0 (i.e. the subwoofer wont kick in). I purchased this product from amazon in april 2005, and the it sounds the same as the day i first used them, even after playing them at high volumes. I am really glad I made this purchase, and i would absolutely recommend this product over other brands in the same price range. I also forgot to mention, the looks, white (matches ipod, so it fits right in) the green leds create a good display, which other speakers dont offer. the design of the system is something ive never seen before, as we have all been used to the rectangle enclosures for subwoofers and boring looking speakers, but Harman and JBL have done well to produce this. However, when listening to different media, i.e. music from ipod, and movies off the laptop or pc, ive had to adjust the treble and base controls on the subwoofer...this meant getting under the table (bit of work required)...or i dunno maybe you could use your foot if you're lazy. nevertheless, i still have years of use for this system, and you shall as well, should you choose to purchase it. There is more I can say about these speakers, but i think you will find out yourselves how well this product performs when you make the purchase. If the speakers dont produce the sound you want, it maybe the sound source i.e. mp3 player, thats at fault, so dont rule that out. like every 2.1/5.Read more ›
