Having read into a lot of reviews, I knew what I was getting into and I knew that I would be getting overpriced pieces of rubber.

Having got them now, they really weren't kidding. For the price, they feel cheep. With the speakers, you can't tell if you are using the official stands or 3rd party ones and all they do is angle the speakers and make sure that they don't slip off using the small curb at the tip end of the stand.

Ignore the description, they are just cheep rubber which do not "improve sound", and the only reason they seem to improve sound is simply because the speakers are very directional and angling the speakers more towards your ears at a computer desk can improve on details which are otherwise lots. This same effect can be achieved with some books and your average consumer wound not be able to tell the difference in sound. Having said that, all that they have going for them is that they aesthetically fit with the speaks, but for what it is, they should have been included with the speakers.

If I wanted to put my blinkers on I could mark these stands down for being pricey for what they are physically, and, yes, being just a trifle narrower than the speakers they were produced to support. Those are sort-of valid points, but I wonder how readily one would come up with a genuinely easily made or obtained alternative that is at least as effective. It's easy to come out with negative opinions, but I am more interested in the practical reality.

For me, the stands are doing a remarkable job in greatly minimizing sound transmission to my computer desk from my new Audioengine A2+ speakers, with a significant subjective improvement in the sound. No, they don't completely stop such sound transmission - total isolation would be a real 'holy grail'! Nonetheless, before I was using those stands every loud passage in orchestral or organ music was causing vibration of my desk, which I could feel with my hand - and indeed could feel also right down the desk's legs, with the potential to disturb my neighbour below despite concrete floor and sound insulation underneath that - whereas now, with the stands, only the most extreme loud passages produce feelable vibration on my desk. Of course, their tilting the speakers upwards is just right for a computer desk, but if one wanted to use them, say, on high bookshelves, in some instances these stands might serve well reversed, so tilting the speakers a bit downwards.

The supports are OK, but in my opinion they are a little small and would have been better with a footprint the same size as the speakers to give safer and steadier holding.

Also for a couple of rubber mouldings they are very expensive and do not greatly enhance the audio capacity of the speakers.

Overpriced for what they are. But they work great with the Audioengine A2+ and they look great, Having the speakers pointing up at you ears rather than at your chest makes it sound marginally better, but only because they're pointed out your ears obviously not because these stands do anything special to enhance it. But again overpriced. I would only buy if like me and are a bit OCD about the aesthetics of your desk otherwise go for a nice dinner instead and place the speakers on a couple of books. Or buy an adjustable stand which are similarly priced and the speakers have mounting holes.

I found these stands for my A2+ to be a bit expensive for just some pieces of rubber! What pushed me towards buying them is my OCD for looks and assumed they would be the best at making the speakers look better and also read they improved the audio for the A2+, something I was very skeptical about but took the plunge anyway.

Upon getting them out of the box, they were not much to look at and in my opinion did not visually speaking fit the speakers very well. However when it comes to audio it pretty much helped the A2+ in every way it increased clarity, opened the perceived space of the audio up and tightened and cleared up the bass which i was very happy about as it seemed very muddy before.

These are definitely worth the money for how much they improve the audio but I like other reviewers have said, these should of come with the speakers. It feels a little like DLC (downloadable content) thats on a game disc already but you're being made to pay extra for it again!

Look better in person, than in most of the photos I've seen.

Genuinely improve the audio due to angling teh speakers towards your ears. Audioengine A2 speakers are very "directional".

I managed to get a used pair from Amazon on the cheap, otherwise I think the full retail price is a little steep.

I had previously found the measurements online, and carved my own stands out of foam packaging, which worked just as well, but looked like... foam packaging :/

Makes a huge difference directing the Audioengine A2 sound right into your ears. A2's are essentially mini reference monitors so the sound needs to be directed at you to get its full richness. You would have spent a decent amount on your A2s so don't stop at the final hurdle.
