Hercules XPS 2.1 Lounge speakers

 

It may not look like a million bucks, but the Hercules XPS 2.1 Lounge speaker system certainly sounds like it costs more than $60.

Very affordable. Clear high-frequency performance. Strong low end from subwoofer.

Wavy speaker design isn't for everyone. Unsightly wired controller.

Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speakers Review

 

First Looks The 8W satellites are glossy black with orange cones. The left speaker is bare, while the right speaker bears the volume control knob on the front and the headphone and input on the side. The 16W subwoofer is fairly simple in design...

Hercules XPS 2.1 50 2.1 Speakers

 

2.1 speaker sets-the kind with two satellite tweeters and a single subwoofer-are very popular with those whose hardware doesn't support 5.1 or 7.1 audio, or those who simply don't have room for those elaborate setups. Hercules' XPS 2.1 50 speaker set...

Excellent sound ; Shielded so that interference from phones and such is negligible

Right satellite and main audio cable is hardwired

The Hercules 2.1 50 2.1 speaker set is an excellent setup for both games and music. The stylish satellites are attractive and useful. They're magnetically shielded-traffic from my phone did not generate static noise when it was placed near the...

Product Quality

 

I would not recommend this product to anyone unless you can stand the constant thumping of the sub woofer as the amplifier goes into saturation and collapse while at idle! This occurs even with the volume control at the lowest setting. If the...

decent speaks

 

I'd buy them again. For the price, they sound great. These are the perfect speakers for your grandfather's computer so he can hear the AOL noises, or for your luddite girlfriend to listen to Bon Iver.

They sound great for cheap 2.0 speakers ; Bass response is surprisingly good for small speaks. They don't distort as much as I expected them to at higher volumes ; Definitely on the higher end of the low to to middle price point speaks

They are definitely low-end speakers, and sound just a bit brassy. If you have an audiophile bone in your body, don't buy these for anything but a stop-gap, or for listening to talk radio

Good Sound for its price

 

The speaker is compact and narrow. It will fit nicely in tight spaces. The sound is pretty good for the price

Wire not long enough and no subwoofer

Does everything I need it for

 

Space is limited in a nursing home and my laptop has poor sound levels. This speaker set has plenty of volume to rock into the hall or whisper gently at night without losing the bass. It takes up almost no space yet delivers quality sound for all from...
