JBL Creature III Review


I have to admit that I've never been impressed with small speakers, even those designed for computer use. Even worse are those that promise big sound, but

JBL Creature III review


After a little tweaking of your Mac's output, you'll be very happy with the sounds the Creature pumps out.

Spend a little time adjusting your Mac's audio output and you'll be very happy with the Creature III. However, the Creature II can still be snapped up online for as little as £60. For a significant saving of 40%, we think you'll be just as happy with...

JBL Creature 2.1 Speakers


JBL has been manufacturing professional sound equipment since the 1940s. Its range sits at the higher end of the sound system market, and is generally priced accordingly. But none of that explains the logic behind these speakers. Oddly named...

JBL Creature III


JBL's Creature speakers have long been one of the most peculiar and pleasantly eyecatching designs around. This 34W, 2.1 desktop speaker system lives up to its name more than ever before, with tentacular legs at the corners of the subwoofer and...

Just Buy and Listen - JBL Creature iii


When I first saw these speakers some thoughts some mixed thoughts came in my mind. I was definitely impressed by their outlook and stylish design but I doubted that they would sound any good. I had overestimated the JBL Creature iii a lot. When I...

Great sound, very beautiful, compact and unique controls

The LED indicator is on the back, subwoofer could be larger

Great sound at a reasonable price


I was very impressed with the sound quality of these speakers. They have great bass response and were very easy to set up. Didn't like all the cords...a wireless version may be nice

Singing squids on my desk!


I work from home a few times a month using a Macbook Pro. The laptop speakers are merely "ok". I decided to get some desktop speakers about the time Amazon put the JBL Creature III system on sale after Thanksgiving. The reviews were ...

Good sound, compact, stylish

Not very powerful and some may not care for the looks

Not bad for the price!


Bought them for my computer and hook up was fairly easy. The only problem I have is the instructions are all pictures when it comes to installation. The wording is all about safety and what not to do. Took me a bit to find out why I had no volume. I...
