From the Manufacturer
|Introducing Logitech Z-5 USB Speakers, built for Mac and PC, featuring omnidirectional acoustics--an innovative speaker technology, previously found only in expensive home theater systems. Omnidirectional acoustics provide great sound at a more consistent level, no matter where you are in the room. Because they are connected via USB, there's no bulky power adapter, and it's easy to move them from room to room. These speakers also include a sleek remote control that lets you wirelessly navigate and enjoy your entertainment options.|
Logitech's Omnidirectional Advantage: Make Any Spot in Your Room a Sweet Spot
The Logitech Z-5 Omnidirectional Stereo Speakers are designed to transmit sound more consistently over a wider range of space, so you never miss a beat--no matter where you are in the room.
Traditional versus omnidirectional loudspeakers
Logitech Audio Labs' omnidirectional speakers differ from traditional speakers. Designed to radiate sound more uniformly over a wider range of frequencies and angles, Logitech's omnidirectional speakers create a broad sweet spot that is not dependent on a fixed listening position, as shown in Figure 2. The true hallmark of omnidirectional speakers is the increased sound quality that comes from tonally balanced direct and reflected sound. The increased reverberant sound field also increases the sensation of spaciousness and listener envelopment. By designing loudspeakers to radiate sound more uniformly, Logitech delivers great sound to any spot in the room.

These speakers are omni-directional, so you can hear them the same no matter where you may be in the room. Other regular speakers create a triangular sound zone with the "sweet-spot" at the vertex of that triangle. The advantage the omnidirectional feature gives you is that that you can place these speakers any where and still get the same sound. This addresses a problem for me as I usually sit on my living room couch while working on my laptop and don't have a place for speakers. I've tried using wireless speakers earlier but the results are sketchy.
With these Logitech speakers, I don't have to worry about placement for creating the perfect sound. So I can just put them under the end table and hook them up to my laptop when needed. Usually to play music or watch TV/movies on the net. They sound good even if I'm not sitting directly in front of them.
They can also be ported from room to room easily. Since they're tall, rectangular and sleek and not too heavy you can stack them in a bag and take them to a friend's place for a party.
However, given their price, if I was using my laptop at a desk or a desktop I would not buy this system as for the same price I could get a system with a sub-woofer and a richer sound.
The speakers are nicely loud. I tried wireless speakers for my laptop earlier but they were only loud enough for a small room or for individual listening. These speakers are pretty loud and can be used to play music for a small party.
The sound is just ok. It's clear and mostly free of distortions unless you turn up the speakers really loud, then you hear some hiss and crackle.Read more ›
My computer is a MacBook Pro running 10.5.5 (about to be 10.5.6), but this product's box reassured me it would work (instead of being Windows-centric). It did. Right after connecting it, I was impressed with the imaging these speakers provided and the frequency response. I had heard them before after hooking them up to my iPod in a popular electronics franchise, playing music which I was already familiar (having frequently played the selected tunes on a high fidelity system). They sounded great in the store, but without the background noise of Christmas-shopping customers, they sound fantastic.
The frequency response is what you'd anticipate from great quality PC speakers without a sub-woofer.
What sold me on these over other PC speakers (namely the Z10 and the V2 Logitech models) were several reasons:
1 - These speakers have an analog line-in should I ever decide to use an audio source other than my PC;
2 - The price was right (esp. through Amazon), with free shipping & no tax;
3 - The remote control.
The Z10s were impossible to find since they've been discontinued, and the V2s didn't have a line-in.
The Bose Companion 2 set were much worse than these Z5s, primarily because of their poor psychoacoustic processing. When the Bass hit hard in a song, the trebles noticeably dropped off. I'm not sure if this is a Bose "feature", but it disappointed me.
The Creative Gigaworks T40 were a bit too big for my setup, unfortunately. Had they been shorter with a smaller footprint, I may have considered them. The Gigaworks T20 model was a disappointment.Read more ›
The Logitech Z-5 speakers are advertised as providing Omni-directional sound via multiple drivers per speaker. The drivers use a primarily polymer-like material and provide outstanding high-frequency audio. The mid-range is above average since it still sounds somewhat muffled, but the low-range audio / bass response is non-existent. It sounds like you are listening to songs out of a tin can. I played GTR Evolution (racing
simulator) using the Z-5 speakers and it detracts from the overall experience. The Logitech Z Cinema speakers I normally use have much better mid-range and bass (due to the huge subwoofer) but lacks the high-end response of the Z-5. The Omni-directional feature is interesting but I did not really find an application for this. On each speaker, there is one driver that faces you while the other driver is right behind it on the other side. If you are moving around, then you could detect a difference in the direction of the sound but for the most part, people tend to stay at their desks working on their computers.
The installation of the speakers is painless. The right speaker has the USB cable, and by the way, the right speaker is the only speaker marked for orientation. I found that I did not even need to install the drivers. Windows XP Pro SP-2 and XP Media Center Edition recognized the speakers right away. It is a tiny sticker underneath the speaker. I had some problems with intermittent connections on the audio jacks. There is a 3.5mm jack for an auxiliary input like an iPod or Discman, and the 2.5mm jack is for the left speaker connection. There is a rubber cap for the 3.5mm aux input port that would be easy to lose, so keep an eye on it.Read more ›
