Product Description

Product Description

Rated 5/5 by the experts at What HiFi?: Compact clever and with a big detailed sound all without batteries or a mains adaptor SoundScience QSB - 30W USB Desktop Speakers with NXT DyadUSB Technology SoundScience worked hard at finding you the right technology and components to make the perfect compact laptop powered audio system. The results are revolutionary! That's the only way to describe these dinky speakers. They will redefine your desktop audio experience. Look across the market and you will see several options for listening to your music from your laptop but it has to be said that none do it quite like your SoundScience QSB speakers. With the problem for most portable speaker systems being lack of power SoundScience have cleverly adopted the DyadUSB package from NXT (HiWave). What is NXT DyadUSB Technology? The DyadUSB is revolutionary piece of kit that enables a 15W per channel audio burst all from only 2.5W of electrical power! This unique technology has been made by the best for the best. SoundScience has cleverly integrated this into an everyday speaker system that will provide up to 30W of sound output power! Magnificent! The speakers are super small and compact (8.5 x 8.5 x 8.5 cm). They feature a stunning design - metal grills and a smooth metallic exterior with rubber guides to hold their place when delivering you some first class audio. Everything in the package gives that premium feeling down to the sleek rubberised travel case and audiophile-grade magnet cable with RCA connectors for a richer audio experience. So they look the part do they sound the part? They get a great big AMP3 thumbs up! They won't fill huge rooms but are more than capable of producing an sound far greater than what you expect from such small desktop speakers. They certainly managed to create quite the impact in the AMP3 office. When you pick up the QSB USB Speakers and plug them in you can expect rich bass crisp and detailed highs and astonishingly good stere.

Have taken delivery of a pair of QSBs..... and before I say anything else ... WOWOWOWOWOW!!

They come in a clear, plastic, box-like outer package with a sort of riveted edge which contains the speakers in their carry case and a fairly low-key cardboard descriptive label which lists the following:

Features

2 x 15W phenomenal 30W equivalent peak power output
Sub-compact completely portable
Powered solely by USB port of host device
Redefines USB audio - full range of linear, high-power, low distortion audio
Greener, lower power consumption, cooler sudio
Extremely wide listening angle, up to 180 degrees
Detachable audiophile grade speaker cable with RCA connectors
Direct digital audio output from computer
Bass Boost for even deeper richer bass
Designer carry case (9 x 20 x 10 cm)

Technical Specification:

Closed-box design, Mechanical dimension 85mm x 85mm x 85mm
Patented NXT Flat-Drive Technology (BMR - Balanced Mode Radiator)
High Performance 8 Ohm 40mm Flat Drive BMR Driver
Patented Ultra efficient low power consumption amplifier
Bass enhancement filter
1 x mini USB port

The carry case itself is black with a red stripe running around the middle length-wise and has a sort of tyre-type finish to the top surface. A nice quality feeling case that will probably last well.

Opening this reveals the two jewel-like piano black gloss finish speakers with silvered edges. These too feel a nice weight and good quality. In between them the two cables, one RCA connector cable (about 1 metre) to link the speakers together and the USB cable (about the same length) to connect to the PC.

The purchase of these speakers was down to an article in What hi fi.The price was a slight deterrent,but when I took delivery
and so the quality I was pleased, then when I plugged them in and played a selection of music through them I new my descision
was correct.They knocked my socks off!.
I have no reservations in recommending them,my laptop has come alive and watching videos whilst camping will be a real treat.

These little gems live up to the hype. Given that they are driven by the limited output from your PC they really do deliver a sound far in excess of that from the laptop. Well worth the asking price of £49.99.

These small speakers punch above their weight. Small. neat, smart and feel solid enough. A good addition to any computer for better sound output. Obviously won't compete with larger Hi-Fi speakers, especially for bass output. They are also very portable and come with a good storage case. For the price paid (£19.99) excellent value.

Great laptop speakers but don't be fooled by claims of "30 watts peak power". 1 or 2 watts per channel RMS would be a far more realistic description. These are not HI-FI speakers, a proper amp would break them instantly! But, with a laptop they provide a good rich sound although at full volume from even from my little old TravelMate the cones do start to knock.
Not too sure about the base boost - this relies on your software sound settings and just appears to increase the volume, besides, too much volume or base and the cones will knock. It's also a bit of a nuisance having to keep going into your sound settings, when coming out of suspend mode for example. ( Plug and play - NO - Plug in and then go to sound settings on your computer ) - but now I've got used to that I'm very happy with them.

Reality checks aside, they are very nice speakers with a good solid feel to them, and one extra bonus - no interference from mobile phones.

I like the speakers: they look and feel great, they're well made, heavy, and unobtrusive on the desk. The sound is also excellent. BUT, if and when my PC goes into sleep mode, the speakers no longer work afterwards. A re-boot of the PC is required to make them work again, which is a hassle. Having read up on this on the net it seems others have reported this problem too. The question is, can you live with that?

The sound from these things is nice, but the only input is USB which means they're only useful when attached to a computer. There isn't a separate 3.5mm input for an MP3 player.

They're supposedly portable, but they're a bit heavy to be lugged about all the time.

The trade-off is that their weight helps produce the nice sound but also makes me want to leave them on a desk in a semi-permanent installation, but I've already got an adequate 2.1 speaker setup and, as mentioned above, there's no auxiliary input so these are, ultimately, superfluous.

These speakers look nice, build quality is decent and they are nicely packaged, but the sound quality is not great. There is no deep bass, and speech sounds muffled. On my mac, the speakers stop working after coming out of sleep and need to be disconnected and reconnected. I'm glad I only paid £19.50 for these. I'm not sure what those people at What HiFi were smoking when they gave this a 5/5 rating having reviewed these at £85. The sound quality is not that good.

Without the disconnection problems, these would be a decent buy at £19.50, but I can't recommend them with the disconnection problems.
