Hercules XPS 2.0 60

 

The biggest complaints about sub-$100 computer speakers are that they distort too much and lack decent bass response. So it's a pleasant discovery that the Hercules' XPS 2.0 60 ($99.99 list) speakers suffer only from high-volume distortion, and thus...

Balanced, crisp output. Articulate bass response. Sleek design. Affordable. Adjustable treble and bass

No remote control. Distorts at high volumes

The XPS 2.0 60 sounds better than you'd expect from a $100 speaker system, but it has distortion issues at high volumesand there's no remote control.

Hercules XPS 40 2.0 Slim Speakers

 

Speakers are a hard thing to rate because different people will have different expectations for their computer sound system. Some people only need basic sounds, like Windows midi clicks and beeps, or playing the occasional video online. While others...

Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speakers Review

 

First Looks The 8W satellites are glossy black with orange cones. The left speaker is bare, while the right speaker bears the volume control knob on the front and the headphone and input on the side. The 16W subwoofer is fairly simple in design...

Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speakers

 

2.1 speaker sets-the kind with two satellite tweeters and a single subwoofer-are very popular with those whose hardware doesn't support 5.1 or 7.1 audio, or those who simply don't have room for those elaborate setups. Hercules' XPS 2.1 50 speaker set...

Excellent sound ; Shielded so that interference from phones and such is negligible

Right satellite and main audio cable is hardwired

The Hercules 2.1 50 2.1 speaker set is an excellent setup for both games and music. The stylish satellites are attractive and useful. They're magnetically shielded-traffic from my phone did not generate static noise when it was placed near the...

XPS 2.1 40 Slim Speakers- PC Games

 

It seems that sound has become quite important nowadays, and I don't just mean the sound of a real world environment. Digital sound is also important too, be if from your PC, MP3 player, iPod, DVD player, video game console, or whatever else you choose...

After my time with the XPS 2.1 40 Slim Speakers I would have to say that they are not bad at all. If you are going to put these on a computer or office desk to listen to your PC or MP3 player then I really can't see any issue picking them up. They are...

Very Clear

 

I made a mistake by getting this model and purchased the Xps 2.0 60 Dj Club a week later which have the depth and punch I was looking for on my Porch watching sports, movies, news,cooking shows and loud enough to cover my backyard with music without...

Basic 2.0 speakers that are very clear for general internet, youtube, presentations, and most movies. I used it outdoors on the porch watching baseball games on TV and they were just OK.. I currently use them plugged directly into my Visio TV in my...

No separate treble bass control, just one knob of which the center spot is the only sweet spot. Thus, there is really only one type of sound that is good. Fortunately, that sweet spot is a very clear with little strain (or bleeding) and a good sound....

Slimline Speaker

 

The Hercules XPS 2.0 40 Slim Speakers are a great deal and perform just fine. They free up a lot of space and the remote volumn control let you place the speakers behind the monitor and not have to reach around to adjust the levels. I've now ordered 4...
