The manufacturer commented on the review below
This is the most disappointing purchase I have ever made. There was so much hype going into these that it actually affected the way they sound at first, but once the confirmation bias wore off I knew something was wrong. When going from these speakers to listening to music in my car, the music got better even though it was playing through factory speakers on my aging car. I tested other cheap and worn out speakers around my house with the same results. Some 20-year-old radio shack speakers and some cheap KLH speakers both sounded better than the B652s; in fact, the only speakers worse were the ones in my tv. The tweeter in the B652s is practically nonexistent at the high end, is harsh and inaccurate for cymbals and electronic music, and it gets lost in the midranges coming from the woofer. I spent extra time breaking these in to no avail. I felt like I was listening to a completely different speaker than the ones that others had purchased in the past, and it turns out I was. I searched for information on the crossover and found out it doesn't really have one, but the originals didn't either. The woofer is wired straight from the spring terminal and then to the tweeter in parallel. (I also don't think these can be 8 ohms as the label claims.) The tweeter then has a single inline capacitor that is now 50v instead of the 100v capacitor on the original. This shouldn't necessarily change the sound, but it's inferior nonetheless. A review on budgetphile.com showed pictures of some of the differences in the new model, and comments on reddit noted similar concerns.Read more ›

Jolly, we would like to thank you for your past support for Dayton Audio products. We are intense audiophiles here at Dayton Audio, and knowing that any customer received a pair of B652's that disappoint them really gets our attention! As background, early this year we found that a number of B652's in the field had tweeters with reduced output levels - which is the main cause for the perceived poor sound quality some of our customers experienced. We immediately addressed the issue and have made other minor refinements to make sure the B652 sounds even better than ever. We understand and know that our reputation as a quality manufacturer is directly linked to the sound, value, and performance of our products. Since this unfortunate incident, we have implemented further QC standards and measurements to ensure that the B652 will never receive another black eye or unhappy customer and feel confident that the current supply chain is without any previous performance issues!

Since the first identification of this issue and subsequently correcting it, we have instructed anyone that owns a set of B652's that feel are lacking in performance or sound quality to contact our support staff for immediate replacement or refund. Again, thank you all for supporting Dayton Audio and we look forward to providing you with years of affordable, fantastic performing products!

I bought a pair of these to use in my bedroom stereo system -- mostly for playing music and listening to public radio. While I thought they were OK for listening to voices on public radio, I wasn't pleased with their performance for listening to music. They just don't have enough character to suit me for a music speaker, even after they were broken in. I was running them with an Onkyo TX 910 tuner amplifier with 45 WPC.
They are very well built. The highs don't have a pleasing sound to my ears. I think they'd work better in an AV system than for listening to music.

*Everything is back as it should be.*

The old version of these speakers was great, but they have released an "Update" that completely ruins the sound quality. Do not buy unless you want to be ripped off.

No audiophile but these are great for the price. I wanted computer speakers and after a few hours of reading audio forums with people searching for cheap solutions (less than $100). I found that all the recommendations were to ditch the purpose made computer speakers and buy a set of they for $39.95 and add a standalone amplifier. I mated these with a SMSL SA50 amplifier and the an audio cable to go from the pc 3.5mm jack to RCA. I was in it for $117 total. I think the results are great. I you have the space to put these in for your PC I highly recommend them over getting a set of "PC speakers".

I'm glad I took the time to read forums and get these instead of paying for overpriced BOSE...which are much smaller but, I have the space.

If you need small these are not for your desk.

Packaging was great. Comes with small audio wires, could upgrade to a little bigger gauge. I'm using what came with the speakers and I'm happy

The manufacturer commented on the review below
The new revision (late 2012-2013) of these speakers makes them a total crap. I never tried the original ones but these i got now are very bad, there is no bass, treble roll off, the sound is far far from being accurate or clear even at the $40 price tag. Everything sounds THIN AND UNNATURAL!. My very old creative 2.1 computer system did better, or even my Lenovo Y580 JBL laptop speakers are at the very least as good as these Dayton B625. I am going to return them.

Just a side note. Coming from a Sennheiser HD800 and Stax, to my ears these speakers sound worse than $1 ear-bud. Head-fiers should definitely stay away from any sub $100 speakers system or get ready for huge disappointment.

I got these as part of re-purposing a very old pair of Radio Shack Minimus 11 speakers (they are going in the garage).

There was evidently a time period where the manufacturer messed these up, but that has clearly passed as I was very impressed with the sound I am getting out of these little guys. I did run them for several hours at a fairly high volume to sort of break them in, and there was definite improvement after this, but even out of the box I found them to be quite acceptable.

Seriously, as sub-$50 speakers go, there's really nothing worth deducting a star over. They are pretty light weight as far as the cabinets go, which, for 50W max speakers isn't really much of an issue. One of the name plates on the covers was applied slightly crooked. That is basically it as far as "defects" go.

I'd say buy these with confidence.

Sounds great. I thought that the tweeter was just a little too crisp for my liking, so I added a little acoustical deadener inside the cabinet. It made an improvement. For the price, the Dayton B652 is remarkable.
