Ok for games, bad for music
on July 4, 2010
Tested with some games and music:
* Tremble and high/middle midrange are coming out of the speakers and are good enough for the price range these speakers are in.
* Lower midrange and low frequency sound is crossed over to the sub. The sub cannot reproduce lower midrange properly, the lower frequencies are very muddy, boomy and unclear.
Games and general - just Ok. The voice will not sound as full as on good speakers because of poor reproduction of midrange. The sound will be a little bright. All-in-all, they should be sufficient.
Music - this system is definitely not suitable for reproducing music. The crossover is set very high. The lower midrange is directed to the sub, but the sub cannot properly reproduce midrange frequencies. The low frequencies are inaccurately reproduced by the sub. As an example, there is no difference between low frequencies of drum instruments and low frequency of string instruments. All low frequency sounds are just boom-boom-boom - not so with better speakers. In addition, sub overpowers speakers and if you dial down the sub then you will have no lower-midrange, just tremble and upper part of midrange.
If you will be playing music through your computer - definitely get different speakers. Logitech would be better musical speakers for the same price range. Klipsch or M-Audio would be in a higher price range but incomparably better in sound quality.
