      Great speakers for anyone!

      Posted

      I was amazed when I had found these Klipsch R-15PM 2-way powered Bluetooth monitor speakers at Best Buy. The two important aspects for me when I was looking for new speakers was versatility and sound quality of course. These speakers definitely have both of those qualities. First off, versatility, because I am a college student I wanted these speakers to be easily transferable from home to school and vice versa, keep in mind that I live in Illinois and it is a six-hour car ride. That being said, the speaker dimensions being 12.5” tall, 12.5” in depth, and 7” wide made it perfect for me to fit in a car with my other things. So, for anyone that would need to occasionally move their speakers, these make that process easy. I also wanted these speakers to be used for multiple purposes two of those being watching television and playing music. These speakers also made that very easy for me and anyone else that likes multi-platform media because they are built with Bluetooth, auxiliary, digital optical, and PC-USB. This means they are able to be used easily with phones, computers, and could also be used to watch television by running an optical cord between them. The sound of these speakers blew me away. I have a pair of older 350-watt, JBL 2-way floor-standing tower speakers and I would say that for the size of these Klipsch speakers they aren’t as loud which is understandable for being less than half the size and 100 watts, but they sure do sound up to par. I feel like I can hear music clearer through these speakers without losing too much volume which I want for parties. The right speaker has a built in 5.25” woofer and the left is just normal. When buying these speakers, I do suggest buying a separate subwoofer as I had bought the Klipsch 10” subwoofer and I cannot believe the difference it made. I would suggest that for all speaker systems though, if you are like me and want more bass to shake the house. The Pros - Very versatile with their small dimensions while having great sound quality - Gives you many ways of connecting whether you are using a phone, computer, or television - Easy setup with only 2 cords needed and both included The Cons - The remote is very small and lacks connectivity at sometimes - May want subwoofer for added bass Overall, I was very happy with my purchase and I would definitely recommend these speakers to anyone else that likes to listen to good quality music or any sound for that matter.

      Unbiased review- a solid "meh"

      Lots of people like to justify their purchase, so of course their choices are always glowing. Likewise, anyone who can't figure out how to use it will proclaim it "junk." That being said- I'm no Klipsch fan aside from their fantastic hand-made high end and vintage speakers. Their new lower end "consumer" level stuff is cranked out in mass quantities in some contracted Chinese factory. To be clear- so are most others in this range, but not all. First off, these have a phono pre-amp which makes them extremely useful now that turntables have made a faddish comeback. Pretty much the reason I tried them. The sound is kind of what I expected from this level of Klipsch- harsh highs, inaccurate representation of the source material. Admittedly, after some serious 'break in' time it got better- slightly. They still have an overly tinny high end and hollow midrange. There are many other choices in a speaker this size that will provide smooth, powerful sound without being fatiguing to listen to. Do NOT mistake these for a near-field monitor... not even close. For near-field use such as computer speakers, audio or video editing etc these would be a terrible choice when manufacturers such as PreSonus make FAR superior sounding speakers for the same or less. I imagine these are aimed at people who want a fancy look, a brand name that is recognized and "real" sound quality is not a priority. These NAIL that application perfectly, and will a great variety of inputs. Looking for sound quality- run away. Looking for aesthetics and a little brand name recognition, these should do. I was planning to return them immediately, but after breaking them in they went from sounding terrible to a solid "meh." At their price, that's not good enough.

      I have owned many Klipsch speakers, including the r-15m passive speakers for $249 which I thought were essentially the same sounding speakers as these but non powered. I was a bit disappointed with the passive version r-15m as they didn't have the crystal clear highs and open midrange I was used to with klipsch. I recently sold my Klipsch RP-260f's in the effort to simplify and downsize my system and chose to buy these r15-pm hoping they would sound better than the passive version I had once before. When I hooked them up and gave them a listen, initially I wasn't impressed, they sounded boxy and muffled. I gave them the day of mid level volume of continuous playback to break them in and they opened up. They now sound miles ahead of the passive version. I have a paradigm subwoofer hooked up and they sound great. I am really amazed that they sound so clear and play so loud without strain. I think a subwoofer is a must to fill out the bottom end. I highly recommend these to anyone who wants a simple high quality stereo sound for the modern age or even classics on vinyl. My only complaint would be the remote. It is small and cramped. An option to buy a higher quality one should be in the works.

      Perfect when paired with 12" Sub

      I am VERY HAPPY with these speakers, especially since I attached a Klipsch 12" Subwoofer using the Sub Out plug. They sound AWESOME together. I shake the whole house when playing music from my iPhone. Without the Sub they sound nice, but not enough bass for me. The Right Speaker has an amplifier built in. The Left is just a normal speaker and it comes with a 10 foot Speaker Cable INCLUDED that you run from one speaker to the other in order to get sound to the Left Speaker. The only downside with these speakers (and it's not a big deal) but they automatically turn the volume down each time the power is turned off. But it's well worth the effort of turning them back up since they sound so awesome with that 12" Subwoofer. The salesmen didn't know ANYTHING about these. I learned everything online before purchasing. They even told me they didn't have them in stock until I showed them that their website says they DO. LOL I'm SO GLAD I bought these speakers.

      Klipsch quality

      Has many good features Phono in W/ground and line in signal amplifier for connecting vinyl player. Bluetooth, aux, digital optical, inputs. Nice selection of inputs. Audio reproduction you can expect from Klipsch. Nice smooth treble. Not muddy mids and bass. It does have a subwoofer out to connect a powered sub. I have very few complaint. I'm very happy we with it. I do have two points I wish we're better. It is labeled "monitors" it does not have a true flat frequency curve. Bass seem too rich to be true flat as well as treble. Also there is small hiss, not really noticeable to use as TV speakers or playing vinyl. True close field monitors have near zero noise while not in use. For this reason cannot be used as true monitors. My only other drawback I'm lowering it's grade for is loudness. I have a pair of monitors two way 5 1/2" on par with audio quality boasting a mere 20 watts per channel. It's louder, more true flat. I only use them in studio. Klipsch missed something on build quality somewhere. Summary great bookshelf speakers, not monitors, awesome connectivity. Great All in one unit with no separate amplifier​. Better than any soundbar any day.

      Great Sound and very Versatile

      I bought these speakers about a year ago. They sound great. I was using an old Sony 400W stereo previously. That stereo is louder, but muddier. These Klipsch speakers are Crystal Clear. I am not kidding, when playing Jazz it sounds like I have a band in the living room. They sound best with my AT-lp120 turntable. I use an external preamp wich to my ears sounds a little better tha the Klipsch. built in preamp. I also listen to Sirius XM over the blue tooth. Sounds better than CDs. These speakers have adequate bass response, but about 6 months ago I purchased a Klipsch 10 inch blue tooth subwoofer. I set it at 80hz crossover. It rounds the sound out nicely. Not overly dramatic, but it gives even more of a live sound. You can rattle the walls with the subwoofer, but that is not what I prefer. This is my main stereo now. My Sony still gets use when I workout in the basement, but I prefer the Klipsch for more serious listening.

      I was looking for a versatile solution and considered options from soundbars to component systems. I tried a few things and took them back after being disappointed in sound quality and / or functionality. These sound fantastic! I current use them with a tv (optical) and with Bluetooth music, but plan to add a turntable. A sub would be a good addition but not necessary for a smaller space, and these won't fill the need for a surround system, but for basic music and tv / Netflix use I don't think these can be beat for the price. As a con, I wish quality manufacturers like Klipsch would stop using these terrible little credit card remotes. Also, I hope their next version will have play-fi (multiroom) capability which would really be a plus!

      These Klipsch R-15PM powered monitor speakers were just what I was looking for. Frankly, I was surprised to find speakers with this combination of features. I set them up to flank my TV / Tivo / home theater PC setup, and was able to replace the mini-stereo setup I'd used previously (for which I'd had to cobble together connections because it had no optical input for connection to my TV). I agree with many other reviewers when I say that these speakers have very good sound for their compact size... perfect for an apartment setup. You have the option to add a sub-woofer to supplement the decent-but-not-full-throated bass. For me, the combination of Bluetooth, optical, PC-USB, and analog inputs is fantastic, and was a major factor in my purchase. The remote is compact and works well. I'm definitely happy with my choice!
