3.0 out of 5 stars OK but certainly not as good as other reviewers have indicated, November 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dayton Audio B652 6-1/2-Inch 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair (Electronics)
I've had these for a month plus now and they are OK but nothing like what other reviewers indicated. I don't know the terms used in describing quality or lack of, but I have close to perfect pitch and these speakers sounded boxy meaning like a speaker in a radio. I have two other pairs of speakers I bought for $20 for my MP3 player and this one sounds about the same. There is certainty no clarity at the high end and the best word I can think of to describe the sound is stuffy (or in a box). The thing is I never expected them to be that great until I read reviews that said they were. And I certainly feel I got what I paid for so I am not disappointed. I got these speakers for soft back ground music and these are perfect. When I am intent on listening music with the volume raised I have high end speakers that I listen to the music with. But as I said for background music these work just fine. Oh one thing. You have to get better wire to connect these speakers to your amplifier with then what came in the box. The box had like a 22 gauge aluminum. I put 14 gauge copper. Much much better.
I am not sure this helps anyone decide but it is how I feel about the speakers.

My thoughts exactly. I got these a couple years back as part of a bundle when I ordered a Dayton T-amp that I needed anyway. I used them for about 20 minutes before pressing on with my search for a good pair of bookshelfs for desktop listening. Ended up with a pair of Klipsch B2 for $99 that -- gasp -- actually have treble and don't sound boxy. The Daytons have been sitting in the closet ever since. Different strokes for different folks, I guess: I know a lot of audiophiles consider muted treble a good thing and decry any "bright" sounding speakers like the ones I love.
