I ordered these speakers with little hesitation. The only hesitation I had was the fact that I was converting from some studio monitors (Behringer MS40's to be precise). They handled high frequencies, acoustic music flawlessly. Low end...not so much.
I wanted something with a punch! Something that enabled me to feel music again with the thumps of the low end frequencies. With monitors I didn't get that as I didn't have a sub woofer. Yes I could buy one separately but I didn't have the means of plugging it in with more cables and the lack of a USB sound-card interface.
Out of the box I fully understood why I purchased them in the first place, my god the subwoofer is amazing! I have it placed on three pieces of sound absorbing foam and it really does tighten up the bass response. Kick drums on songs feels like I'm kicking it myself! Amazing.
Without doing any tweaking I noticed it was mainly just bass and treble, no mid. Determined to get the best out of them I configured my sound-card to reproduce the highest bit rate possible. I did the same with the sound device options on Windows and voila! The middle end appears and it sounds so full! Music is amazing, games sound even more exciting now and movies...It sounds like I'm in a cinema! Thanks to the THX quality there.
I highly recommend these speakers, just please please configure your sound card bit rate and the same in audio devices on your computer to really get the most out of these amazing little speakers. They sound so much better than my old monitors. I love them, I hope you will too.
