Orb Audio Mod1

 

In New York City, it's tough to find stereo speakers that look good and work well in a small apartment. The Orb Audio Mod1 ($239 per pair, direct) speaker set comes closer than most, with unique round enclosures available in a variety of eye-catching...

Attractive design. Transparent, neutral sound. Plenty of volume. Airy highs, even despite the lack of a dedicated tweeter

Virtually no bass punch by themselves

The Orb Audio Mod1 stereo speakers sound incredible when paired with the company's companion Super Eight subwoofer, but on their own, they're not quite full-range.

Orb Audio Mod 2 and Uber Ten

 

Orb Audio is an Internet-direct retailer that is out to own the “little speaker, big sound” market. In a marketplace cluttered with pint-sized products that deliver on the former promise, but fail on the latter count, the manufacturer stands out as a...

Hip ; modern design; handsome finish; solid hardware; very good overall sound

Binding posts are difficult to use; high frequencies may be a little forward; subwoofer finish not on par with its satellite mates

The Orb Mod 2/Uber Ten Subwoofer combo offers a winning combination...

Orb Audio Home Theater System Brings Well Rounded Sound

 

Quick — what's the secret to building a versatile surround sound system? Finely calibrated speakers, receivers, and subwoofers? Wrong! The correct answer

Awesome clarity for both music and hi def movies. Easy to assemble. Surprisingly solid craftsmanship. Hardly any distortion at high volumes. Satisfyingly heavy and durable speaker stands. Metal rods on HOSS stands have been hollowed to hide speaker...

Not the broadest sound field we've encountered. Want ear-level speakers? Extra speaker stands are going to cost you at ’99 a pair. Center channel speaker stand kept coming loose. Speaker wire can be tricky to secure due to enclosed clamps

Orb Audio Classic Two

 

Installation

Good looking; quality construction; excellent sound reproduction

Can be directional at times; only three finishes to choose from

In a market segment dominated by manufacturers such as Bose, the Orb Audio speakers are a breath of fresh air.

Orb Audio Mod2 Speakers Review

 

Not all of us have the luxury or the ability to spend thousands of dollars on high priced, high performing, extremely accurate but outrageously ugly speaker systems. And those of us that have that ability may often have to deal with a "significant...

Excellent Sound Quality ; Super high WAF (small and cute) ; Better than expected low end range ; Very cool ; Modular

Distorts at higher volumes ; Unusual wire connection points (bare wire only) ; May not be suitable for larger rooms

Orb Audio Mod4 Speakers Review

 

Orb Audio has presented a refreshingly contemporary speaker system that somewhat miraculously couples big, expansive sound with a relatively small form factor. The system is almost infinitely expandable and, with the exception of a few ergonomic...

Attractive speakers ; Big sound ; Excellent tactile bass response

Sub aesthetically mismatched ; Confusing, complex mounting options ; Difficult assembly when using HOSS stands

Orb Audio People’s Choice Speaker System

 

Spherical loudspeakers are perhaps too easily dismissed: “Oh look, it's round. Cute gimmick. Next…” That box speakers are easy to build certainly doesn't guarantee sound quality. In fact, designers of quality speakers are constantly rebelling against...

With the People’s Choice package, Orb Audio stakes a claim to high-end performance in the sat/sub category. While it’s subject to the limits of compact sat/sub sets in general—mainly midbass integration—it also has tremendous appeal thanks to its high...
