These speakers are great. The audio quality is spot on for their price and size. And they'll get loud... really loud... without distorting. The subwoofer puts out great beats, and has a bass level potentiometer on the back. I've connected these speakers to my desktop via the included Bluetooth dongle. I plugged it in and Windows (7) installed the software in a matter of seconds, requiring nothing from me besides turning on the speakers. I also have them paired with my phone (MotoDroid) and my Bluetooth enabled laptop. Pairing was problem-free with both of those, I just have to push the button on the Bluetooth dongle to disconnect them from my desktop first. Also, I can have music playing off of my desktop using the speakers while using my Bluetooth headset to talk on my phone, all within about five feet of each other, and there's no interference or troubles. Overall, I would suggest these speakers to anybody.

These are really great speakers for 150 dollars. I use them with an IMac and the difference is sound in both quality and volume is incredible, with the ability to adjust the bass to match your taste. Set up was straightforward and quick (2 to 3 mins). Instructions said turn off all Bluetooth before set-up but I have a wireless Mouse and Keyboard, which I left turned on. There were no problems during set-up and there is no interference. In terms of build quality and appearance, they look great and the side speakers are small enough to blend in. Only downside for me was that I didn't know they weren't completely wireless - the small speakers are wired to the woofer (with about 2 meters of cable) - only wireless bit is from the PC to the woofer, which according to the instructions allows you to locate the 3 speakers up to 10m from the PC (or whatever device you are streaming music from). Overall, a really good product, which I would definitely recommend.

There are only a few things to really consider in a speaker system like this so I'll get right to them.

SOUND- Not bad, full but somewhat dull base, a bit limited in the middle bbut decent highs. The sound stage is good for the size of the satellite speakers. The volume is more than sufficient for using with a computer. Music and videos sound nice especially rock.

EASE OF USE- Windows 7 had no problem recognizing the included dongle without software installation, but the internal bluetooth on my brand new Asus Core i7 laptop can't find it. The power and volume button on the side of the satellite speaker are a little small but acceptable. the power cord and speaker cords are not very long though are sufficient for a desktop.

BLUETOOTH- This is where Creative gets an 'F'. The speakers pair nearly instantly but can't stay paired for more than about 10 minutes at a time even though the dongle is only 7 inches from the receiving speaker! There are no other bluetooth devises in my apartment that could be interfering, and I can reconnect by removing and putting the USB dongle back. The problem seems to be yet another of Creative's typical oversight of one critical detail to their product that dogs so many of their devices. The only reason I'm not returning them is because the packaging is to complicated and they do work with the auxiliary input.

Bottom line; I can't recommend these speakers as they are over priced for what you actually get.

Hiya,

Decided to rewrite this review.

THE GOOD -- these speakers sound MUCH better than their small size. Perfect for smaller rooms or nearby travel even.

THE BAD -- there are more wires than you'd expect, but it's better than having batteries in everything. Or a recharging unit that dies.

THE UGLY -- the included directions to these speakers were printed in 2009. This means nowhere in or outside of the box do you get the following CRITICAL directions on how to wireless set up your iPhone or iPad --

a. find the power button on the white speaker and turn speakers off. You know they're off because there's no green light on the front of the speaker (center bottom)

b. with speakers still off, lean on plus volume button and wait for a blue light to flash (where the green one was)

c. at this point (on Apple devices) go to GENERAL > SETTINGS > BLUETOOTH > TURN ON (if not on) > WAIT > WATCH INSPIRE APPEAR IN DISCOVERABLE > SELECT (by clicking center of said bar, not the right hand thingee) > enter in FOUR ZEROS

None of what I just posted is anywhere on the package. Or on the Creative Website. Or is there any way to call Creative. Until they post said directions on their site, I'm treating these four star speakers as three, because I know most people will never find these directions until after HOURS of fury and frustration.

There are a lot of wires with these "wireless" speaker. I knew I would need to plug the speakers into an outlet to power them but did not think that that the two speakers would both need to be connected to the woofer. I wanted to set up a couple of speaker in my small kitchen driven by streaming music from my pc in another room. The wires from the woofer to the two speakers made this impractical for setting the speakers on the kitchen counter. Giving up on this idea I moved the unit to the living room just 30 ft from the pc. The blue tooth reception was often interrupted making this use impractical as well. I returned the unit.
