These little speakers rock! The sound is very clean and full, with a signal to noise ration >96dB.

The bass is very solid and deep for such a small driver, with a slightly noticeable peak in frequency response around 80Hz or so, depending on what you are listening to. I personally have to turn the volume of the sub to it's lowest level, or the bass overwhelms everything else. I think the greatest thing about these speakers is that even at a low overall volume level the sound is very full with plenty of deep bass (very similar to sound you get from a pair of large element headphones). A lot of speakers sound very thin at low volume levels as the bass rolls off, but not these, the little sub box just keeps thumping. One word of warning: The sub unit is NOT video shielded! Do not place it anywhere near your monitor, or you will ruin it, place it in the floor under your desk as recomended.

These speakers will bring the life back to your MP3 collection, and I won't even mention video games. Buy and enjoy!

Computer speakers have made leaps and bounds in the past ten years. The cost / benefit ratio, just like with other forms of technology, has really plummeted to levels so inexpensive that you no longer have to be cynical if something costs next to nothing.

I picked up the Logitech's mainly to listen to my mp3's before burning them and listening on my 'real' stereo. Frankly, burning cd's is a pain in the rear, and I have been using my laptop and mp3 device almost exclusively as a home unit now that I have the X-230.

I said on one other site that complaining about budget speakers is a little like whining that you're dollar cheeseburger isn't as fresh and succulent as it appears on the menu. And while there are many praises to sing about these speakers, at the end of the day they aren't a Bose system. Period.

But MAN do they deliver a lot of bang for the buck. The highs are incredibly crisp and the bass is more than adequate, particularly if you are an apartment dweller like myself. These units were not designed to scorch your next block party, but they will fill an average apartment with acceptable sound even at a much higher price point.

Regarding the unit being "too bassy," the solution is simple (and touched on by another reviewer here). What I do is turn the bass knob all of the way up - yes, up, and then tweak the EQ in my media player to the lowest bass setting. This affords only the deepest bass signals to come from the sub, and eliminates most of the tubby sounds associated with cheaper systems. I firmly believe that many of the individual frequency complaints can easily be addressed by some creative EQ-ing.

I wanted a little extra bass for the songs I had stored on my computer and it exceeded my expectations! They look great and they sound even better. The subwoofer has a bass adjuster (mine does---some people just may not know where it is, i had to show a friend where hers was the other day) and you can turn it down to no bass or turn it all the way up. I was so excited the first time I listened to it. So if you want to give a boost to your computer's sound system (or a cd player's) then these are good bet.

Verified Purchase
For folks who really enjoy listening to well recorded music with vocals and deep, full bodied bass, these speakers are just terrific! As an audio enthusiast and industry engineer for many years, my biggest complaint about most computer speakers has been their relatively thin, metallic or boomy sound, that made most music sound like bad boombox tunes. Not with these puppies! They have better tonal balance than far more expensive speakers from companies like Altec, Polk Audio and Bose, and for a lower cost! Most have arrived in perfect condition, but one set arrived with the port tube rattling around loose inside! Out of four sets, that's not a good percentage, so you might want to check them carefully before setting them up.

Yes, I repaired the loose tube, but it's not easy getting in and out, and I do not recommend this tactic for the average user. Just return the item if defective upon arrival. That is the only negative that I have to share, otherwise, they have been a joy and delight for the entire family!

I've been shopping for computer speakers for a while and the selection in the stores was underwhelming and the prices were ridiculous. I've had great luck with my Logitech mikes and headphones for my desktop and laptop, so I thought I'd check out Logitech speakers. I read the reviews on here before I bought and figured almost 130 people couldn't be wrong, and the price was certainly right.

So they were delivered yesterday, it took me about 5 minutes to set them up (and I'm no electronics whiz) and I had the music thumping in no time. I love the size and shape of the 2 desktop speakers--they're compact and perfect for my small workspace. I also like the angled desk stands, which can also be mounted to the wall. I also like the easy access controls--power button, volume control and headphone jack right on the front of one of the small speakers and the adjustment knob on the subwoofer is a great feature. I do agree that the cables are cumbersome, but that's a minor detail that most systems share.

The sound quality is great--no vibrato, no reverb, no rattling at higher volumes. These speakers are great quality and put out a lot of sound--I only have the speakers turned up almost halfway and that's plenty for my small office. I agree with the others--the bass is VERY effective at low levels. I have the subwoofer set on 1/3 power and it's perfect.

One important note and I think others have mentioned this--I didn't see anywhere in the instructions where it said to keep the subwoofer away from the monitor. So I will re-iterate that here: put the subwoofer on the floor or a few feet away from the monitor. The subwoofer is not shielded and will fry your monitor if you don't. Maybe I missed it in the instructions but I was glad someone else had mentioned it.

To sum up, these speakers ROCK and you won't find a better deal for the money.
