Unbeatable Performance for the Price Tag it offers!


Design: The satellites are designed decently, but its the woofer that catches my eye - I used to keep the sub-woofer out of sight for my earlier sets, but I find it hard to do the same for this one! The air-outlet is really well contoured, which is...

1. Compact Satellites, Well Designed Woofer Unit ; 2. The mids, Highs and Lows are really well reproduced. Bass in particular doesn't jarr and sounds clean and strong, which is a really a job well done by the manufacturers ; 3. Excellent for listening...

1. The design is simple and ordinary (the woofer unit is good looking though) and its a 50-50 as some might like and equally dislike the design ; 2. Decently Loud, but don't expect anything extreme ; 3. No controls for balance, bass, treble, although...

Great Sound!


Overall I'm very impressed with this system! The sound is full and rich. You can't go wrong with this unit!

Full spectrum sound! The Bass is very good! Also the mids and highs are also very well produced

There is no knob to control the amount of bass/treble. Also the power switch is on the back of the subwoofer

produces rich, full and vibrant sound waves ; suitable for long time listening ; great value for its price class

no headphones jack ; power switch is with the subwoofer ; no bass control

Great speakers for the price.


I got these speakers on Black Friday, so for $20 brand new can't go wrong!

Very clean highs and lows for the price

Doesn't have too much range in term of loudness, but great for my classroom

all and all, a great entry level speaker setup that performs well for all kinds of usage. gaming/movies/music/etc

good performance for the dollar ; sturdy speakers ; decent size subwoofer ; noticeable sound difference even for non-audiophiles ; a bass adjuster knob

sound can seem a bit "cloudy" at times ; speaker design could be better

Wow! Just wow!


Outstanding sound. Crisp highs and just the right amount of bass. Best speakers for under $50! These are slightly better than the AL speakers these replaced and my last set were over $75.

odd triangular design

Great sound for the price


Can beat the sound of this set at this price. I tested some speakers at local store (but not this one), and this one beat all the speakers at this price range

Not really. Don't expect this is a boom box, perfect to use in home office / normal use

Consumer review by:

Great Clean Sound


No humming ; plays fine at normal levels ; haven't really turned it up all the way, but if i did, I'd be blown away


Consumer review by:

Rattles constantly.


I would not recommend anyone buys these, I know they were not mistreated and they sound terrible, I can only imagine how quickly they break if you want to listen to bass heavy music at a good volume. If they weren't a gift I would have thrown them out...

Got these as a gift, they sounded fine, had decent sound, don't have the idle-hiss some speakers have

After never driving them hard at all (they are office speakers, I giant ones for gaming and music) The right speaker is blown, it rattles constantly even at very low volumes, very annoying ; I am an NPR listener, not a dubstep fan, and these speakers...
