I've owned the Logitech X-230s for several years and have always been more than pleased with their performance. They're easily the best sounding speakers in their price range. When it came time to buy another set of speakers for a second computer, I went searching for a new set of X-230s, but in my search I saw that there was a newer X-240 line of speakers, comparably priced. I assumed that I would be getting nearly the same or better sound quality out of a newer generation of my X-230s, but when they arrived the next day (amazon prime has changed my life) I was sorely disappointed.

The sound quality is lacking significantly compared to the X-230s, and no matter what I did to my sound settings on my computer and the bass level on the subwoofer, I could not get away from the muddled mid-range tones. The highs are quite tinny and the speakers put out almost nothing in the lower range, instead relying on the subwoofer to do all the low-end sound. Even with my the subwoofer turned all the way down on the X-230, you still get fairly deep tones, but not so with the X-240s. If you turn the sub all the way down, you're left with speakers that sound no better than the ones Dell throws in free with your purchase of a discount computer.

Just to make sure there wasn't a problem with the computer I hooked it up to, like a bad setting in the sound card properties making the output sound hideous, I swapped computers that the X-230 and X-240 were connected to. Sure enough, the X-240 still sounded awful while the X-230s still put out that beautifully clear, rich tone that I've always expected from them.

About the subwoofer. The cone is a standard paper cone, which is no big deal, but I'm very bothered by the fact that it is not protected in any way.

Odd... well, one would think a product released later with a higher model number would be better. Apparently, that rule does not apply here. Sneaky marketing?

I also own the X-230 and I was very impressed with it, considering they're 2.1 speakers. The X-230 actually feels like surround sound. However, I can't say the same about the X-240's. The X-240 just sounds like what one would usually expect from 2.1 speakers.

The X-230 has two drivers in each speaker (total of four), whereas this new version, X-240, only contains one; that may be why it sounds more flat.

The X-240 sounds like I'm just listening from a regular jukebox. It doesn't sound terrible, but it just doesn't have that rich dynamic feel and sounds a bit muffled.

The X-230 bass is pretty overpowering even at the lowest setting; maybe because of those complaints, Logitech decided to make the X-240 rely more on treble and tried to go for clarity. Unfortunately, the result ended up sounding more flat. I guess Logitech tried to cut back costs by using only one driver for each speaker. Bad idea.

Speaking of cheap... honestly, the dock is very cheap. Basically, you slide it out -- and it doesn't even come out that far -- where you place one of the plastic "adapters" (included for the iPod, Zune, etc...). I tried to set it up, so I could place the iPod sync cable and place my iPod Classic, but that was a mess. The cable would not hold in place firmly at all; and without connecting to it, there wouldn't be anything secure to hold the mp3 player. The "dock" (if you can even call it that) is just unreliable and worthless for me. There's really no weight to the "dock", so it would easily knock over. It is basically a HUGE volume remote.

Attention potential X-240 buyers: Be sure to read all of the reviews for this item. After reading the top-rated review I was a little discouraged, but I went with my gut and bought the X-240s, and they r very nice speakers, the only thing u need to watch out for: that "muffled" sound talked about stems from using the green tipped cord, instead of that cord find a small black aux in cord and on the side of the ipod holder find a little port with a musical note next to it, connect that with the small black cord to your ipod or computer, the sound is really quality with that connection (Although I don't know why, just trust me it works.) The x-240s r great speakers, so be sure to read all the reviews before you make up your mind.

In the past three years I have purchased four Logitech speaker sets. The X-220, Z-3i, X-530 and
now the X-240. I have also listened to the X-230. I would have to say that of all of these the X-240 is the least satisfying.

Due to having a smaller woofer enclosure (I find it hard to call any of these things sub-woofers), It doesn't seem to have the thump-ability of the others that some people like. But, many Logitechs over do it at the bottom end and can ruin some types of music. These also don't have as much power to overcome high background noise levels if needed.

I got mine to use at work. I wanted to have my PC input to the speakers, but also have the ability to listen to my iPod directly through the speakers while bypassing the PC. This way I don't even need the computer on unless I need to also charge the iPod. I thought the player cradle would be neat, but found that there is a problem with the concept. If i use the correct adapter for my Nano, once you plug the USB cable in the bottom, you cannot squeeze the side buttons on the plug to release it. The buttons are blocked by the adapter. Thus the iPod is locked to the cradle. Goofy!
There is a separate short cable that goes from the headphone port to the cradle. This is all you need if you do not have to charge while playing.

Like all Logitechs, the wiring situation is lousy. These aren't as thick as some of the others, but they are still non-detachable and create a cluttered mess. I would rather be able to use the old clear zipcord and cut to any length. Apparently, we are just stuck with this mediocre method.

The sound isn't all that bad. It's clear and clean, but just not strong. If used in the proper setting, say a quiet office, these may suit you just fine.
