The sound quite frankly blew us both away. I ended up "borrowing" them frequently for my home office, where I also like to jam from my own MacBook Pro while working. I did it so often that she ended up ordering ME a pair, too. I was very glad she did!
The speakers are perfect for for small spaces - and in such settings deliver surprisingly rich, clear sound -- the bass in particular is amazing.
Two thumbs (make that four) WAY up for Audyssey's Lower East Side Media Speakers!
UPDATE, July 20, 2012: These speakers ROCK on my Kindle Fire. I've been watching HBO GO movies and shows with the speakers and it is amazing. I've got the speakers setup in my home gym. My elliptical machine has a little shelf designed for holding books, iPods, tablets and I put the Kindle Fire there when working out. Since connecting it to my Audyssey speakers I've been watching tons more video on it. And needless to say when playing music from my Kindle or iPhone, I also use the speakers -- really pleased with these speakers.
Esthetically speaking they're handsome if a bit bland. Ultimately they look like what they are: A pair of speakers with a wire stand. I waffle on whether I prefer my speakers to make a design statement or just "be there" and not attract attention. These definitely fall on the "just be there" side of things. The wire stand they're on almost seems like an afterthought and detracts a bit from the overall ability of the speakers to blend into the background but doesn't add enough oomph to make them seem like their own design element. Sort of a worst of both worlds option, but again it's not a serious problem.
Now the bad news: Functionally these speakers leave a lot to be desired with one glaring flaw that would prevent me from buying these for anything over $100. On the "needs to be improved" end of things, dedicated bass and treble knobs would be nice since these speakers give enough of both that you want to adjust them. The volume/on/off knob on the front of the right speaker is pretty flimsy and cheap feeling for speakers in this price range IMO.Read more ›
If there is no sound for 30 minutes, then the speakers turn themselves off. They technically go into stand-by mode, but if they require you to hit a button to turn them back on, its not really a standby mode--its an OFF mode. There is also no way to turn this off. When working at the computer and then you realize you missed a chat request or alarm because the speaker auto turned off, its REALLY annoying.
I would not buy if this is a concern. ITs much more annoying in reality than in thought--and the only solution is to always play something through the speakers/computer to keep it from standby mode.
I think after using these speakers for a while, I just need to get another pair so I don't have to constantly hit the button to turn them back on ...
Audyssey is famous for their software algorithms present in many home theatre receivers, etc. The LES Media Speakers are part of their three-pronged attack on the compact audio market; the other two parts being their Audio Dock and Audio Dock Air. These also come in a wireless model now as well. The speakers are large by desktop speaker standards, the first indication of the quality and capability of the hardware put together by Audyssey. This is because each speaker contains a tweeter, 3-inch woofer, and even larger passive radiator, which is extensively monitored by Audyssey's software expertise in sound processing. The resulting sound is thick, but detailed, with a slightly recessed, though still prominent midrange. The tweeters can sizzle a bit sometimes, but vocals never seem overly harsh, indicating no peeks in the midrange. The strongest aspects of the LES Media Speaker's performance are the extended bass response, which easily reaches down to 50 hz with aplomb, and the smooth frequency response. Audyssey doesn't quote power, but they are quite loud, rated at 95 db from a distance of 1 meter by Audyssey. So, in closing, the LES Media Speakers look good, don't take up a lot of space, and offer quality audio performance.Read more ›
