Trust 2.0 Speaker Set SP-2420 UK
Advantages: Good sound quality, cheap, additional port for headphones.
Disadvantages: cheap look to them, better speakers systems out there for experienced users.
Having become more and more disillusioned with headphones and having that familiar cumbersome weight on my head or moving abruptly only to be followed by a trail of menacing black wires, I decided that I needed to invest in some new speakers, my requirements for these were that they had to be cheap, they had to be decent and a Trustworthy brand, expuse the pun!, my search didn't take long as I walked into the shopping centre and found myself at Wilkinsons which were selling these for £15.99 a pop, not bad for a pair of speakers I thought!
As I said I found these speakers in Wilkinsons in their pc gadgety type section that they have there, to be honest there were only two other competitor brands being sold, but these were the cheapest by about 10 pounds at £15.99. I hadn't really looked anywhere else to do a price comparison on these but I decided to go with them as I thought it was a bargain at that price anyway.
===Specifications & Technical Info===
There isn't alot of information on the box about these specs or sound quality but here are the basics that I found on there:
# 18 watt peak
# 9 watt RMS
# Headphone connection
# Usb powered
===Packaging and what's inside===
There isn't a great deal to say for the box really, as it is just a box. Basic packaging, writing, and the Trust brand emblazoned at various places on it. It does give the specifications I have listed and contained basic instructions which could be useful to those that aren't too familiar with technology and how it works.
The box contained the speakers, wiring, and the user manual, as well as a load of polystyrene which you never really know what to do with!
===How the speakers look and sound===
The speakers do have a glossy black finish to them, with silver domes taking a central position in the speakers, the top one is smaller than the one beneath it, I'm guessing this has something to do with the bass and overall sound quality of the speaker. The speakers also include a port to plug your headphones into, and two buttons on the side, one which controls the volume, and one which activates the headphones port so that you can listen in with your headphones, useful if your neighbours are getting fed up with the sound coming through the walls all the time!, they do have quite a cheap stylish look about them, but for £15.99 what can you expect.
Now, onto the sound, I'm no sound engineer but the quality is pretty good and I haven't noticed any distortions or raspyness in the sound at all, it's pretty crisp and crystal clear for listening to the things I listen to, which is music mostly at medium volume, perhaps if I listened to it on a higher volume I would notice more distortions, but for the casual listener, this should be fine to be honest.
===My thoughts on the product overall===
Would I recommend this to others? Well it depends, if the person is a casual listener like me, then absolutely!, but if your building your own media center and want something with more 'oomf' then no, this wouldn't be the best set of speakers for you. I would say that this is a fantastic set of good value speakers for any casual listener and for £15.99 you can't go far wrong, the speakers do have a bit of a cheap look about them, and they are very light too, which makes them quite easy to move them around which is useful if your like me and always shuffling things about in your room, overall it's a great product that Iv'e had for about four months now and have had no problems with them whatsoever, I would recommend this to casual users such as myself.
Thanks for reading.
Summary: Decent pair of speakers that produce quality sound at a quality price.
