Poor sound quality + no stereo support
on December 26, 2010
My 2 main disappointments upon plugging those in were:
1) Very poor sound quality, worse than pc speakers. This has nothing to do with signal reception - 1 feet away from the transmitter and the signal seemed strong with no interference. The sound is just muffled, similar to what you hear from those cheap tiny iphone speakers that sell for a few bucks.
2) Discovering these do not support stereo sound. Now, I know I should have paid more attention and noticed 'stereo' is not mentioned anywhere in the product description. I simply assumed that since the speakers were shipping in pairs and due to their popularity and price, that they must be stereophonic.
To conclude, there is simply no enjoyment to be had with this set. It feels like you've gone 30 years back in time in terms of music experience. Whatever advantage wireless brings in, goes away when the first few notes play.
If you care anything at all about the quality of sound you listen to, don't get these speakers. If wireless is a must, get something more expensive, preferably from a different company. I recommend you look for "stereo" in the product description and read all the 1 star reviews. If I was less compulsive, I would've been spared this purchase.
