Hercules XPS 2.1 Lounge speakers


I didn't know the price of the Hercules XPS 2.1 Lounge speakers when I hooked them up to my test computer in the labs. They delivered pleasant, resonant bass, and clear high-end performance, typical of, say, a $120 2.1-channel set. I was greatly...

Very affordable. Clear high-frequency performance. Strong low end from subwoofer.

Wavy speaker design isn't for everyone. Unsightly wired controller.

They may not look like a million bucks, but the Hercules XPS 2.1 Lounge speakers certainly sound as if they cost more than $60.

Works Fine


I was skeptical about buying these because of the ratings the other people gave it but after i used them the Skepticism went away.

Looks good and works good. the bass doesn't hit all that hard but you can notice it. This wasn't a $100 unit so i don't expect it to work like one

If you turn it up really high it doesn't sound good, crackles and stuff like that

remote control is not well positioned


The sound adjusting remote control is not positioned well. It is a head ache to control the volume, which is a serious design flaw. I am ok with sound experience.
