3.0 out of 5 stars good value for the price, but not really good speakers, July 14, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Logitech S120 2.0 Multimedia Speakers, Black (Personal Computers)
At $9.995 a pair, they are good buy, but they do have some very serious limitations. They are too bright, sounding a little tinny. The bass below 120 hz is almost nonexistent. The midrange appears fairly accurate and smooth. They are better than other speakers I have heard in this price category, but not comparable to many $20+ speakers. I own a Logitech predecessor, Soundman sLH2s, that I paid $20 for about 5 years and I was hoping I would get comparable sound, but no.

I think this review is helpful and accurate. I purchased the speakers, and they are suitable for my purpose (at work, in a shared office).

Hey Joe, what do you expect from ten-buck speakers? Logitech gives the most value-for-the-buck in electronics to date.
If you want state-of-the-art sound, choose Bose (or many others) for optimum enjoyment, BUT, at a (much) higher price.
I installed a 1080P TV in a bedroom yesterday. Great picture, sub-acceptable sound from the factory speakers. Logitech speakers will solve the 'tinny' sound just fine for a TV. Sound problems solved. Saved $390.

you are right you cannot expect hi fidelity sound for $20, but Bose does not deliver much better and you have to pay much more.
I paid less than the logitech's for a complete 40 watt RMS Logisys 4.1 Amadeus which has an amp and sub that is comparable to many hifi systems and I tweaked the satellites with $20 worth of parts and got a fabulous sound, far better than most Bose.

Bose and state-of-the-art sound SHOULD NOT be put in the same sentence. You can find that out if you go to any AVS forum online.

I have a similar pair of speakers made by a different company. The problem with them is that they actually pick up a radio station from somewhere and this background noise messes with the computer sound output!! I'd like to buy a new pair, but I fear having the same problem. Would you care to Comment?

No real input. Try shielding the amped speaker and the speaker wiring with aluminum foil. It is more likely that it is the wires to the speakers than the input or output wires or the power line to the amp. Also then try grounding the foil. Be careful that you do not touch any of the input or output plugs with the foil.

Before replacing the speakers I would try one or two loops of the audio cable around a ferrite core, and one or two loops of the power supply wire (where it plugs into the speakers) around a separate ferrite core. They can be had via Amazon through this link:Ferrite Core 1/4 Cord Noise Suppressor.

Other vendors such as Digi-Key and Mouser also supply the item.

Had these and was never really happy with them. They are not much louder than my computer on its own and after a while they stopped plugging in well and kept messing up my audio completely. Won't buy again

Thanks a lot for the ferrite core suggestion!
