Harman Kardon SoundSticks

 

A Marriage of Technologies It comes as no surprise that Apple's clever design team worked with Harman on the unique look of SoundSticks. The first product from this duo was the built-in sound system that comes in every iMac with a slot-load CD or DVD...

Great sound; great looks; easy setup.

Mac support limited to USB-based systems running Mac OS 9.0.4 or later; limited audio adjustments; limited support for Windows.

SoundSticks sound a lot better than you'd expect, considering the low price.

Awesome MAC speakers

 

First off, I'd actually only rate these speakers a 9/10 but there were a few comments on their quality which were very biased and frankly, incorrect. That out of the way, I've had these speakers for the last 2 years and to say that I am very ......

Great fidelity, digital quality, uses USB and leaves the headphone port free

No volume Adjustment or Line out

Still working Great!

 

I bought mine back in 2002 to go with a PowerPC. Many computers (both Mac & PC) and three moves later, I currently have them hooked up to a Digital Storm gaming PC with Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) and they still look and sound great. My husband...

Digitally connected; Cool looking; better than the usual

Strange bass

Decent computer speakers...great for Macheads.

 

Nice design...obviously. Very inexpensive. Decent sound...afterall, they're computer speakers

These cannot in even the slightest be compared to audiophile-grade speakers...that rumor must have been started by some young 'un who really wanted to believe this was true. Anyway, don't expect superb sound...or excellent sound...or even good sound. Ex
