Genius SW-Flat 2.1 850

 

Use your head and avoid the new SW-Flat 2.1 850 speakers from Genius.

Sleek design. Distortion-free, even at maximum volume.

Poor sound quality; weak subwoofer. Headphone and line-in jacks seem cheaply made. Cloth on speakers collects dust easily. Headphone jack emits hum.

Genius SW-Flat 2.1 700 review

 

Flat in design, but what about in performance?

Small footprint ; Cheap

Underpowered

Sound quality is reasonable, but there's just not enough grunt

Genius's flat satellite design scheme ticks all the right boxes for style, but still manages to look tacky.

Genius SW-2.1 375 PC Speaker Review - FunkyKit

 

Today we will be going over the Genius SW-2.1 375 PC speakers. I was looking forward to reviewing a full speaker set for my PC just to see what else is out there since I've been using the same sound system for about 6 years or so. Genius always makes...

Solid Design ; Easy to set up ; Low Cost

Sound quality won’t blow you away (this is a very very slight con) ; Power LED is Very bright

These speakers are very solidly built and can put out a good amount of sound! These would be great speakers if you are on a budget or looking to buy your first set of speakers for your gaming PC.

Genius SW-2.1 355

 

Genius' 10 watt SW2.1 355 speaker set offers quality sound, and allows you to blast the music stored on your MP3 player via its 3.5 mm audio input jack.

Quality sound at an affordable price.

Looks rather basic.

Consumer review by: Anonymous (newegg.com)

Product worked great BUT right speaker now has no volume anymore.

 

KEEP EVERYTHING that comes in the original packaging. I've made the mistake of throwing out everything except the speakers and now I will have to repair these speakers myself instead of returning everything for a full refund.

Bass is great.

After a few weeks of having the product, my right speaker on this sound system has failed for no reason whatsoever. For those of you looking for quality, this product is not it. LOOK ELSEWHERE and speak the extra $. ~$100 is not enough looking at my...

Good sound for under $100

 

I would recommend to a consumer on a budget..

Easy set up, Sounds good, Looks good, and the bass is more than enough for my home office. After months of use, I still enjoy it.

Not much.. The headphone jack on the control unit is a little tough to insert and remove the aux cable from.. No biggie.

Not bad

 

I took off an egg because numerous things of what I will list below. The Sub woofer plate gets friggin hot just from turning the unit on. The yellow/gold on the sub and the power unit are a more dull color and easier on the eyes then the darn speakers...

Price was average Easy and quick to hook up. Decent sound.

Cables all around are way to short. Terrible glossy gold on the speakers.
