SONY IS INSANE!! And I love it...


Not since the Mighty Logitech Z2300 and its Amazing performance have i ever heard a computer 2.1 system that impressed me. The DB500 Blows the Bose Companion 5, and Gigaworks T3 away! And the Logitech Z623 can't even come near touching these.. Owning...

Easy to Set up, Amazing highs and Deep lows.. The bass is Thundering. Adjustable Bass and treble, and Aux input on the Sub. Remote is Simple and to the point

If space is an issue Sub is Tall (Compact tower size).. other then that None

Perfect Match


I have always wanted a good set of speakers to listen to my music, connect to my tv, etc. and I can say these are what I have been looking for all these years. To start with, Sony wasn't kidding with the bonerattling bass statement, when you put the...

Powerful bass, Very versatile speaker set

VERY Powerful Computer Speakers!


So I researched tons of speaker options for my 27" iMac and I couldn't find one set that could match the power specs of the Sony SRS-DB500. I'm a huge Sony guy when it comes to my living room, but always went with Logitech speakers for my home office....

Very Loud, Monster Bass, Nice Design

Speakers are boxy and not as attractive as the subwoofer

Consumer review by:

Without exaggeration, the best PC speakers ever


I've owned several computer speaker systems over the years from both Sony and other manufacturers, and none compare with the cleverly named "SRS-DB500". (Let's call them the 500's.) I bought them last summer for my dorm room because I didn't want to...

Amazingly Powerful. Amazing fidelity even at the highest volume levels. Bass that can't be described

Design is not your usual Sony - orange light around volume dial can't be turned off

Superb Clarity and Bass !


These speakers are among the best 2.1 speakers available today ! The bass is just awesome, no doubt, at half volume it literally shakes the doors and other things. Mids are crystal clear as these are "Sony" speakers. Treble might sound harsh at very...

Tight, strong Bass. No distortion at max volume
