Sony SS-B1000 review

 

Sony isn't usually considered a bargain brand, but when it comes to the company's SS-B1000 Bookshelf Speakers, it's hard to complain that they're overpriced. They carry a list price of $70 per pair, but you can find them online for closer to $60...

The Sony SS-B1000 Bookshelf Speakers are attractively styled and deliver impressive sound for their modest price.

Sound could be more detailed, with better-defined bass.

The Sony SS-B1000 Bookshelf Speakers may not quite win the budget-bookshelf-speaker battle, but they do deliver quite decent sound for the money.

Sony SS-B1000 Bookshelf Loudspeaker Reviewed

 

The baby brother of the SS-B3000, the SS-B1000 speakers are only $49.99 a pair, yet despite this rock-bottom price, produce a lively crisp sound that can get edgy if overdriven. For more volume, the larger SS-B3000s would better fill the bill....

The SS-B1000 provides a good level of musicality in a tight package

The SS-B1000 offers a lightweight tonal balance that cries out for a subwoofer ; The SS-B1000's performance significantly degrades when played loudly ; The SS-B3000 only provides push-pin connectors, and offers no on-board mounting hardware ; The...

The Sony SS-B1000 upholds its big brother's solid rep, if not quite asdramatically. Its lightweight tonal balance really needs a subwoofer,but offers a surprisingly high level of coherence that somewhat masksits zippy treble, shallow midrange, and...

Decent speakers for the price

 

Like I said, with a small, cheap amp these make a good set of PC speakers. Would I spend the $80-$90 that most places are selling the new sets for? Probably not. But for $45, they're good "toss them anywhere" speakers.

Condition - If it weren't for a sticker on the back and the plain cardboard box they arrived in, I would have sworn I got new speakers instead of refurbs, The cabinets and screens are unmarked and after several days of (light) use they work ; Sound...

Sound quality in general - While I've also listed sound quality as a pro, that's only because Newegg doesn't have a "Meh" section. I'm no audiophile, but I can confirm what others are saying. Bass is on the boomier side and mids are faded, resulting in...

Surprisingly Good

 

Honestly they don't compare in the same league as the Klipsch KB15 bookshelf speakers I use for my home theater.The Sonys are very light and small in comparison, but I must say they do sound good when mixed in with the other speakers I am using. They...

Decent sound for what I paid. They function nicely for what I bought them for, which is front speakers for my second TV. They mix well with the Polk center and the infinity sub

They would a bit too "boomy" for my taste if I used them as stand alone bookshelf speakers. Lot's of bass, but a bit artificial sounding in that regard

If you can steal these like I did!

This my third set of these Sony speakers. I us them with a powered subwoofer and the sound is great for the price. These reconditioned speakers were a steal for the price. Less than half my first set

Go Cowboys!

perfect size and they appear to look like they work

Unfortunately the pair I received did not work. I plugged them in and the static was loud unless it was turned up halfway, then you can hear the music. The existing speakers I have work fine on the same channel. It appears these were never tested after...
