Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim Speakers Review

 

Up on the review block today I've got arather inexpensive set of speakers from Hercules called the XPS 2.140 Slim. The name comes from the fact that they're 2.1 of course, 2speakers and a sub woofer, but also because the satellite speakersare thin and...

Decent sound ; Low price ; Well made and look good

Cords could be longer

DragonSteelMods gives the HerculesXPS 2.1 40 Slim Speakers a 4.5 out of 5 score.

Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim Speakers – Review

 

I tend to use my iMac for everything from music to tv to movies when I am in my home study. And why not? After all, the 24″ screen is great for TV and movies. (And the 27″ will be even better!!) There are, however, a few things that make the experience...

Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim review

 

Hercules' XPS 2.1 40 Slim speakers are so named because of the tall, slender satellites which aren't much thicker than an average paperback novel. Despite their slim appearance they feel sturdy and aren't in any danger of falling over.

Hercules’ affordable XPS 2.1 40 Slim speakers are indeed remarkably slender, but they sound noticeably worse than the competition. Avoid.

REVIEW – Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim Speaker System

 

One of the main reasons why someone may choose to abandon their desktop computer in favor of a notebook-only experience is the added portability that a laptop can offer. You can take your notebook PC with you everywhere you go, effectively freeing from...

With a retail price of only $59.99, the Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim is certainly a substantial upgrade over something the Speakal iPig. Ironically, the latter costs about $40 more. I guess "cute" comes at a premium.

good speakers

 

nice and crisp sound. the sub woofer is strong as heck for its size but i guess thats why its from hercules. you can turn the sub all the way off (thats good for me cause i use my speakers at night and the subs will wake everyone up in my house.) has a...

i find it weird how the on/off switch is behind the sub woofer. not very convenient but not really a con. i regret not buying these on newegg because they cost me 15 bucks more at another retailer

Awesome speakers!

 

I love these speakers! The price is great for the quality and they were so easy to set up I didn't even need to open the instruction manual. I tested them using at least 3 different styles of music and the bass is perfect on my setting. You can adjust...

Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim

 

Looks good and sounds good, very smooth sound, to an extent.

Once you put the volume really high the sound starts to crackle, which is normal, but I like my music LOUD and it's point before it crackles is just a bit below what I wanted.

Hercules XPS 2.1 40 Slim

 

- good value for money - quite rich, good sound - design - won't take much space, ideal for a small room

- weird 'remote' solution - a bit flat sound if speakers not directed at me
