I cannot possibly imagine what the other reviewers expected. These are $70 computer speakers, not a multi-thousand dollar audiophile surround sound speaker system. For what these are, they deliver truly impressive sound - smooth, room vibrating, bass, crisp highs, and a midrange nearly perfect for computer games. If you prefer music, the midrange can be improved with only minor adjustments in a graphics equalizer - available in Windows Media Player (under "Enhancements" of the "View" menu) and any other decent media player. With a little equalizer tweaking, these speakers deliver exceptional music performance and are a true pleasure to listen to (rock, classic rock, jazz, or country).

Don't overdo the bass. If you're using an equalizer, leave the bass control centered on the remote (use this control to tweak individual songs) and adjust the bass up a very tiny amount with the equalizer. Many move equalizer sliders much too far, resulting in grossly inaccurate sound. Anyway, the bass should balance with the remaining sound, not overwhelm it (or steal power away from the mid-range, resulting in, surprise, muffled sound). In most listening environments, to add punch to the bass, the middle bass should be equal to the very lowest bass setting. If the bass is set correctly, the mid-range usually requires no adjustment. However, many listening environments also benefit from a tiny amount of additional treble (again, not too much - balance). All that should get you in the ballpark. From there, you can adjust for your preference, environment, computer's sound card, and connection (speaker or laptop headphone outputs). None of this should require anything more than gentle tweaking, not huge adjustments.

Are these speakers perfect? Of course not.

As an nearly exclusive classical music listener, and a poor grad student, these speakers happily meet my expectations.

-My brother has a z3 setup which has held up for at least three years very well (and also has similar sound characteristics, and so I admit I had a bit of a sympathy to Logitec.

- Got mine at Target for $69 dollars, a price range (I've found) with few models being offered, and even fewer quality models.

-Beforehand, I spent about, oh, two months off and on going to various electronic and uber stores and tried quite a bit out, and read a number of comparisons on teh intertubes.

- Given the kind of music I prefer, vis. baroque, classical, and polyphonic, I found these speakers had better clarity and crispness
(which is crucial for these genres of music) then the similar price-range competitors:
- JBL's Creature 2.1 setup was indisputably worse
- Bose's Media Mate & Companion 2 (nice sounding, but quiet and somewhat pricey; Companion 3 were not much better and comparatively in the $$$ stratosphere)
- Superior to ALL crappy Altec Lansing and Creative's 2.1s (don't even look)
- Harmon Kardon's sound sticks were nearly qualitatively equivalent in sound (though different in character) but nearly 60 bucks more.
- Klipsch Promedia 2.1 are excellent and better, but I suppose in a different category (though Best Buy lines them up with the rest- nice sales tactic).
- Logi's THX z-2300 are suppose to be very nice but I couldn't find them in a store to listen to them (a necessary criteria for me)

- Bass response is BALANCED. If all day you are watching The Matrix and listening to Moby or 50 Cent these are not the speakers for you. Otherwise play with your EQ and you will be fine.

I'm an engineer and I used these speakers, driven by a pro-quality sound card (lots of dollars), to create simulated 'noisy' environments with various spectra in a relatively small test room (about 10' x 15') for a series of sound measurements on other equipment. Driven by the professional card, the measured output at a 'sweet spot' approximately 3'-5' away from all 3 Z-4 speakers was quite flat (this is good) in the frequency range I was concerned with, from about 30Hz to 12kHz, which would cover most casual listening situations.

I now use the Z4's with a consumer-grade sound card (say $50, don't remember for sure) just to produce background music from Pandora in my office. This is mostly baroque chamber music, so it's not super challenging particularly from a bass perspective. I do notice a slight audible weakness in the mid-range as some others have commented. I have not measured this however. Although the weakness is audible on careful listening with all controls set to 'flat', it can be compensated quite easily with equalizer software, resulting in a very pleasant overall balance. I always leave the bass setting on 'flat' also.

I think the quality of the sound card has at least as much influence on the accuracy of the speaker output up to normal listening levels as the speakers themselves, as long as the speakers do not _introduce_ distortion _mechanically_, and these do not. So for the price (I think $70 when I bought them), they are fine as computer desk-top speakers, which is what they are after all. I clicked on 4-stars when I started this review, and Amazon won't let me change that, but the more I think about what I'd have to pay to get noticeably better performance, I think I should have made it five.
