5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, wish I'd bought them years ago!, 22 May 2009
This review is from: Sony SRSD211.CEK 2.1 35W PC Speakers (Accessory)
As a musician, I can't believe I've been making do with cheap and nasty PC speakers for so long for all my video editing and web surfing...

OK these aren't quite hi-fi, and they're not a 100 watt or 1000 watt (or 10k) PA rig. And yes, the mid range is possibly just a fraction missing.

But wow! For the price, they have fantastically crisp and clear treble, ideal for hearing speech clearly, and the bass is warm, full of power, but also really clear. I've found I have to adjust the volume balance of the little speakers and the bass for every type of thing I'm listening to, but then it's always a pleasure to listen to.

I put the volume up to a third or half of the way and it's very nicely balanced and restrained but I wonder if it's got the power too? But then I keep turning it up and without a hint of distortion or strain it's louder than I can imagine you'd normally ever need at home. And plug in your music player and you've got a very handy music system, like the days when they used to make ghettoblasters at 30 or 40 watts (not just 3 or 4 W!).

I haven't heard other mid-range models to compare with, but I am certainly very pleased I got these rather than the others I've read reviews of.
