Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0

 

They're Klipsch. They must be good, right?

You can put the Klipsch name on your desk for 100 bucks

You’ll want a pair of somebody else’s speakers to actually listen to

Whatever Klipsch was thinking when it designed the ProMedia Ultra 2.0s, we hope the sentiment doesn’t migrate to the rest of the product line.

Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0

 

Few sub-$100 desktop speakers produce even moderately natural-sounding output, so when a system like the Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0 passes through our doors, we pay attention. The Ultra 2.0 produces some of the most live-sounding output we've heard...

Live-sounding. Snappy bass and smooth high end.

Limited volume levels. No deep bass.

This outstanding sub-$100 speaker system sounds more lifelike than most desktop systems costing two or three times as much. It doesn't get too loud and has little output in the lower bass registers, but it sets new standards for realism in its price...

Short Take: Klipsch's ProMedia Ultra 2.0 Portable Speakers

 

Laptop speakers are getting more popular - people see the advantage of having smaller speakers that can be used with their laptop, desktop, iPod, gaming system or even TV, all while remaining somewhat portable and affordable. Klipsch enters the...

Excellent highs, Dynamic bass, Fills room with sound, Pleasing design, Price

Midrange could be more expressive, Only one miniplug cable included, No treble adjustment, A tad too bulky to be considered portable, A smaller case (other than the box) would be a good addition

Within the review, I compared these speakers to higher-end systems because I've come to expect Klipsch to be high-end. At a price less than $100, the "bar" is slightly dropped in terms of quality, but compared to similarly priced systems, this is the...

In today's world of multimedia PCs, file sharing and MP3 players, the retail market can be confusing. PCs have sound cards that will produce 5.1 surr...

Next I tried some MP3s. According to the manual, "during playback of MP3s, files may be perceptibly degraded compared to other audio sources such as CD." Having invested about $7K into my own speakers, I'm not all that fond of MP3 technology....

Affordable, compact computer speakers offer surprisingly good sound

 

Small size ; surprisingly good sound ; low price

Limited volume ; bass doesn't extend as far as most sub/sat systems

Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0

 

Previously we looked at the Klipsch [[prodid:1432]] and found them to be an excellent set of speakers. Thus, when the ProMedia Ultra 2.0 arrived we w...

Punchy bass, Loud, Dark liquid sound

Lacking a little clarity and definition

As far as computer speakers go, the Promedia Ultra 2.0 is a fairly solid package. It isn’t the best speaker set we've heard, but it has a powerful sound that will suit a wide variety of material.

Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0

 

Despite lacking a subwoofer, Klipsch's ProMedia Ultra 2.0 speaker system produces high volume, high quality sound. Its relatively steep price tag is difficult to overlook, however.

High quality, powerful sound for a 2.0 system ; Direct connection for portable audio players ; Handy headphone jack

Expensive for what you get ; Disappointing bass performance ; Some distortion at max volume

At AU$219, the system is strangely expensive considering that it sells for just US$99.95 (approx. AU$135) in the USA. This makes it dearer than the aforementioned TDK Tremor xa-60 set, which can be had for just AU$129. Yet if you can look past its...

High quality, powerful sound for a 2.0 system ; Direct connection for portable audio players ; Handy headphone jack

Expensive for what you get ; Disappointing bass performance ; Some distortion at max volume

Naturally, the lack of a subwoofer means that bass output isn't as full or deep as on a 2.1 system, but higher-frequency bass wasn't as disappointing as we'd expected. Mid-range output is crystal clear, and we had no qualms with its ability to convey...

Those who enjoy listening to music at home, appreciate music equally when traveling. Whether staying at a hotel or going to the cottage, I find music to be an indispensable part of my lifestyle. Most portable speakers are tiny which makes them easy to...

For the size, amazing

 

These things have an amazing sound, tremendous volume and a great low frequency response for the size, if space is an issue, then these are for you

My only drawback so far (after 1 year) is the volume nob, when i turn it it crackles very loud and depending on where i leave it the volume will come out of one side then the other, i feel this may be due to the dust where I am, not to mention this...

Product Specifications

The ProMedia Ultra 2.0 personal audio system is designed to deliver sub/sat level performance from the simplicity and portability of a two-speaker setup. It was created for consumers who want superior, full-range sound quality but do not want to give up the space or run the wire required for a subwoofer. This speaker system easily connects to Apple iPods and other MP3 players, laptop and desktop computers, and portable audio/video devices such as televisions, CD and DVD players. Listeners can also simultaneously feed a laptop PC signal and an MP3 signal to the speakers for mixed sound playback, making this system an excellent choice for both multimedia presentations and entertainment. The ProMedia Ultra 2.0 consists of two magnetically-shielded satellite speakers. Each satellite is a highly efficient two-way design that utilizes dual 2.5-inch fiber-composite cone drivers and a 1-inch metalized polymer tweeter. An exclusive Klipsch MicroTractrix Horn is coupled to the tweeter for maximum clarity and efficiency. The woofers are long-throw units powered by unique neodymium motor structures. This audiophile design approach provides rich midrange clarity, extended airy highs and a satisfying bass punch, creating balance throughout the audio spectrum. One of the satellites - the control speaker - hosts a bass level control along with the main volume, a headphone jack and auxiliary input jack for convenience. Each satellite has a sleek appearance with floating grilles and undercone termination, which hides the voice coil leads for a cleaner cone look. More powerful than anything in its price range, the ProMedia Ultra 2.0 speaker system provides the most satisfying detailed and dynamic sound reproduction available for two-channel multimedia applications.
