These are not home cinema grade speakers, nor could they possibly be for this price (and that they're a simple pair of speakers, - home cinema requires a minimum of 6 including a sub). That said, when used for the purpose they were clearly intended for- as PC speakers, I think the sound is truly excellent for the price.
Given that there's no sub, the bass is genuinely impressive. The rest of the spectrum is well covered too, and music sounds crisp and clear. For PC gaming the sound is equally excellent, with sound effects suitably powerful.
The design of these speakers is very nicely done too. They're attractive, well built, sturdy, and even come with a remote control. (there are also controls on the side of the right speaker) In terms of inputs you get a standard 3.5mm audio jack (cable supplied) and there's even Bluetooth too. I primarily use the audio jack, but I tried the Bluetooth out of curiosity and it connected right away and works fine, although disabling bluetooth requires a slightly fiddly button combination. (all three buttons must be held simultaneously)
If you're looking for attractive, great sounding PC speakers, look no further.
For a 2.0 system these speakers are solid performers but only really perform at their best in a localised area particularly the base output. Brilliant for at desk sound but not so great if you enjoy listening to music any distance away from your PC/Mac as the bass falls away rapidly. As I say, as a 2.0 system they're solid but don't expect anything near what a 2.1 system will give you with a separate sub.
Excellent sound quality and they'll fill any large living room with party sized volume.
The only problem is a slight whining sound when you switch off the TV without switching off the speakers too. Annoying. The hardly necessary, on-speaker controls, are also a bit fiddly - including the on/off button!
Otherwise they are really surprisingly good. And cute. Buy.
WOW these speakers sound amazing! I've tried all different genres of music and i am blown away even at low volume they sound so crisp and bassy no matter what you listen to.I used to have the Bose companion 2 speakers a few years ago and i thought they were good but these are even better.They pack a real punch and are some of the best looking speakers i have seen.
The sound is about spot on with good base and treble. Perfect for both internet videos and brilliant for music. You can always tinker your sound settings within windows if there not to your exact liking. I can turn these up fairly loud without any distortion. They look absolutely fantastic on the desktop.
Good balanced sound as well as terrific looks. They are lacking in low end welly if I am to be critical and they need a matching subwoofer to make them truly sound awesome. Good volume with some limiting/compression kicking in to avoid them being over driven. I bought the red ones and I use them to prepare music before going to a gig. They are great for this!
very nice looking sounds grate bass very good music is fab remote works as it should blue tooth grate got in tv at the moment going to get another set for kitchen radio which is a small dab it will transform the kitchen love them
Have been very impressed with the build quality and the sound of these speakers. Purchased a while ago now mainly use for watching films on PC, but have used with main TV and the sound was amazing. Highly recommend these speakers.
