Trust 17966 Tytan 2.1 Speaker Set - A Good Set of Speakers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trust 17966 Tytan 2.1 Speaker Set - UK Plug (Personal Computers)
These speakers arrived on 22nd February and only now (2nd March) that I've got around to installing them and I'm now playing a range of my favourite music via my PC.
The music coming through these speakers is clear and crisp, the top end is a bit on the bright side for me but I can appreciate the detail. Bass is solid and not overpowering, overall this is a good (but not brilliant) set of speakers for the price.
Now, the reason for four stars rather than five.
There are three main controls on this equipment, excluding the off/on switch, they are a) volume b) bass and c) a rotary knob on the end of a cable that serves as a secondary volume control (although the quick start leaflet claims it controls bass as well but I cannot hear any evidence of this).
The volume, bass and on/off controls are on the right side of the bass speaker, this makes them very awkward to access and use. This requires that you set your volume and bass to your required taste before settling down to work on your PC while listening to your favourite music, etc. The rotary knob gives you adequate, and easily accessible, secondary volume control but you should realise that you cannot turn the volume up higher than the main control setting on the side of the bass speaker.
Now the one great failing, these speakers do not have any treble control which is fine for some music but if you have music with an overpowering high end, to the point of brashness, then you have no way of turning this down.

I sent an email to Trust asking them about the missing treble, which they confirmed and went on to suggest I use the settings in my sound card.

Overall, a good sounding set of speakers but it falls down on lack of a treble control and awkward placement of main controls. However, if those main controls, plus the missing treble, were placed on a control pad and attached to an extension cable, like the single rotary knob, then this would be a five star product.
Please note, there are also sockets for a pair of headphones and attaching your MP3 player to situated on the base which holds the rotary knob. I have not tested these yet and so cannot say how well they work.
