As the previous reviewer says, these speakers really do represent great value for money, especially when you consider the bonus of wireless capability (which works great and is very easy to set up).
As a unit they are very sturdy and on inspection it is evident that the build quality is high. On of the speakers has a volume dial, headphone socket and a button to activate bluetooth. Like the wireless, I found the Bluetooth facility easy to setup and it allowed me to use the speakers to play music from my iPad which was a great touch. The iPad also remembers the speakers, so reconnecting after the first connection is a breeze.
With regard to sound, I was amazed at the bass quality achieved even without a sub-woofer. I'm no sound expert but have been impressed by the sound quality I've been getting when playing PC games.
Considering the price of around £60 I think they represent good value for money for a simply, yet premium set of PC speakers. You'll struggle to find many better looking and performing speakers for the price.
These speakers are amazing value for money. They offer above average acoustics and the built in BassFlex technology means that the bass is amazing especially for something of this price and size and it performs all of this without a sub. The BassFlex technology is great when you are in the mood for heavy bass, however when you are not, it gets annoying. There is no way to turn off the bass so you are stuck with whatever level of bass the speakers thinks is best for the sound they are playing. Als the bass seems to be linked to the volume controls, so the louder you play something, the more bass you are likely to get. On the up side, the speakers are very loud when at full volume. The increase in volume isn't the same from start to finish, i.e. you can turn the dial 1/4 of the way but you will only get 1/8 of the sound. This, however, is not helped but that fact that the sound gets shaky towards the top end with a lot of crackling, especially on acoustics heavy sounds although it copes with bassy sounds surprisingly well at all volume levels. One more glaring problem is the interference caused by other wireless signal, including but not limited to mobile network connections ad even the wi-fi signal from the very PC/laptop it is connected to. This results in a buzzing or crackling and can occur both when the speakers are inactive or when they are on full blast, thankfully the interference is not too loud and has a minimal effect on sound quality so if the speakers are on a reasonable volume there will not be too big an effect.
The tweeters have apt-x bluetooth capability make these speakers versatile as well because they can be placed anywhere in the room, however they are limited in the sense that they require a constant power supple as there is no rechargeable battery, and both tweeters must be connected to each other to get a stereo sound effect. The bluetooth connection is not always the most reliable but works most of the time, and for those of you without bluetooth on your laptops, you can buy a USB bluetooth plugin or you can use a wired connection.
