Misleading, but a great purchase still. Small manufacturer error, hopefully isolated.

Very nicely formed speakers, and the price is amazing, however I do have a few faults. The speaker cones inside the casing were not up to scratch, my right speaker had an obvious bit of clue that had dripped down the cone before drying, along with a black line which I can't get rid of because of the glue. Furthermore, the left speaker cone has a slightly dented bubble on the cone.
Something which is misleading is that the photo shows a golden coloured speaker cone, as it does on the box. In actuality, the speaker cones are just a plain grey/silver and look a lot less premium than I thought they'd be.
However, as a fair reviewer, I think that the sound quality is amazing for the price, and the use of USB is very thoughtful. There is a bass dial for independent adjustment. However, as these are powered by USB, they may be a little underwhelming in larger rooms. I've paired these with a Vibe subwoofer as mids/highs and they perform outstandlingly together. But they would also be perfect as standard desktop speakers just for regular use. (I will be using these for audio/video editing and mixing). Much better than buying a £70 dual speaker monitor setup, but the images were misleading.
