Technology that is out of this world.
The JBL Creature III speaker system features a number of proprietary technologies for the highest-performing JBL multimedia loudspeakers. The system starts with the proprietary transducers used in the Creature III’s satellites, which are made out of aluminum. Aluminum is so lightweight yet strong that it empowers the little satellites to reproduce sound with unparalleled accuracy and detail. Paired with the Creature III’s ultra-rigid subwoofer driver, the system rumbles with deep bass as if it’s about to launch into space. The sound is extraordinary.

Powering each of the Creature III’s satellites is a super-efficient, 5-watt JBL amplifier that’s designed to deliver high output and minimal distortion. A powerful 15-watt amplifier drives the separate subwoofer for a sound experience that you’ll have to hear to believe.

Innovative touch controls
for the volume make the
Creature III easy to use.


Easy to set up and use.

The JBL Creature III speaker system might seem like it’s from another planet, but you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to set it up and use it. In addition to the simple 3.5mm mini-jack connection, the system features touch volume controls. Just a simple touch increases or decreases the volume; a touch on both pads mutes or unmutes it. And the Creature III system is smart enough to remember your last volume setting even after the system shuts down.

What's in the Box
Two satellites, one subwoofer, mini cable, power cord

I bought these speakers to give my laptop good kicking sound. The price is right for the sound and sheer coolness of the design speaks for itself. It's incredible that such crisp treble and kickin' bass is packed into a small speaker set. This is another reason that moved me to get these: they fitted my small home desk very neatly, although the base was a bit bigger than i expected.

On the down side, the treble and bass controls are the inverse of what is printed in the base. Rotating the treble control towards the + sign actually decreases the treble. The same happens with the bass control. It's a minor annoyance but i would expect the people at JBL to get something as simple as this straight. Tech support was not helpful and their first response was a bit on the impolite side. The people at JBL say this counter-intuitively operation is actually the way they were designed. I ended up returning the first speaker set i got because whenever i moved the left speaker a little it would lose sound completely. Make sure to check yours thoroughly, because i got good support only from amazon.com but that will last only the first 30 days.

I am satisfied with the speakers and really love the sound and design, so i'm more than happy to keep them. Unfortunately, impolite tech support, counter-intuitive operation and a wire soldered wrong do not speak very highly of JBL.

Purchased Creature Speakers for my husband's work computer 8 years ago. Loved them so much I bought a set for my computer. Had them a little over 7 years. We had some breakers blow at the office and it destroyed the subwoofer. So I looked around and ended up purchasing the same ones! I love them. The sound is GREAT! Love the new black color and design. Very easy to install. Best price for what you get. The one BIG draw back with this set is the wires are too short. Had to move the subwoofer up behind my monitor. It used to be on the floor.

I bought this item on Amazon for $67. For the price I paid, I think the value is decent. But I wouldn't pay more than that. These speakers can definitely fill a room with sound and the sound is decent. On the whole I am pleased with them, but the bass is disappointing. If bass is a big deal to you, get something else. If you just want a set of decent-sounding speakers that look really cool, these are worth considering.

I purchased these speakers a year-and-a-half ago and was initially very pleased with them. They sounded great and looked nice and didn't take up too much space. My only initial complaint was that the "innovative touch controls for the volume" were slightly awkward to use.

None of that much matters, however, when after this year-and-a-half the left channel quits working due to a faulty connection in the main unit -- the kind that if you wriggle the cable the sound scratches in and out, or if you smack it on its cute little dome. I attempted to contact JBL's "customer service," but was told in barely comprehensible English that they would do nothing, as the unit was out of warranty.

Though I considered the speakers very affordable for the sound when I bought them, having to buy a new set every year rather negates any savings. And I really thought that smacking equipment in a desperate attempt to get it to work was a relic of the mechanical age.

These speakers may sound fine but they're made with shoddy parts and cheap labor and are not at all designed to last. I do not recommend them at all.

I read the reviews here and thought that these speakers were made by elves or something. I skip to the good part and tell you these things look a lot better than they sound.

Aesthetics: They look good. The price for the good looks is that they have a larger footprint than they really need to have, but I knew that up front. Fair warning. I would like to have been able to get this in a color that matches better with my Mac (either aluminum finish or the white that Apple uses in places like the surface of the Magic Mouse).

Wiring: There's a lot of wiring but that's unavoidable unless you go wireless. I think they cheaped out on the cable lengths and I'm struggling to make it work with my desk since I can't get all of the components where I want them. I'm stuck trying to figure out a compromise due to the short runs. Also, be aware that these speakers use a wall wart. I took away a star just for this. Really, seriously, why do manufacturers do this to us? A power supply in the subwoofer enclosure or even an in-line power supply would have been far more surge protector friendly than the really long wall wart that came with this set.

Controls: You have simple bass & treble knobs on the subwoofer. The right satellite has touch sensitive controls for volume up & down. When first powered up, the volume is turned all the way down, so you may think that something is not hooked up right until you turn the volume up on the speakers.

Sound: They honestly don't get all that loud considering the cost. These replaced a cheap set of freebie speakers that came with an old Micron PC back in the 1990's, which got louder!
