Hercules XPS 101 Review

 

PC speakers have sure gone through quite a few changes over the last decade or so. What started out as a pretty limited product category eventually exploded with the addition of bigger speakers, subwoofers and surround sound. Today, there is an...

Excellent look and feel ; Above-average subwoofer performance ; Convenient volume, bass, treble control ; Good selection of connecting cables

Fatiguing treble at close range ; Subwoofer EQ geared for very thumpy bass ; Tough to balance sound at differing volumes

The Hercules XPS 101 could be a serious contender against even more expensive systems but, as it stands, it’s average online price tag of $250 seems a little steep.

Extremely powerful output with high quality audio performance at default EQ settings. Treble and Bass levels are adjustable to dial in a desired balance. Doesn’t distort at tolerable volume levels.

Subwoofer tends to get muddy when pushed beyond mid-level. Wired remote control is a little clunky, with an annoying click wheel control. Odd placement for connections on bottom panel of subwoofer.

If you look past some odd design choices, the Hercules XPS 101 2.1 PC speakers are a powerful option with customizable bass and treble levels.
