      Good Budget Speakers for Non-Discerning Listeners

      Posted
      15ofJuly

      There are 3 things I like about this Speaker System (2 would not be enough and 4 would be too much) 1) Control Pod 2) Fills the room with better than expected bass sound. 3) Uses the PC earphone jack. The control pod has 3 functions for the speaker system. 1) Power on and off. If it is not turned on (with green light indicator), then there are no sound (easy). 2) Volume control. Very handy because I don't have to reach over and look for the volume control on a right speaker where they would normally be on a system that do not have a pod. 3) Headset connector. Another good feature because I do not have to plug my headset into my PC (which is already being used by this system). The pod's volume control can also adjust the volume of your headset if your headset does not have volume control; although went you try to adjust the volume of your headset by this method, the changes are very minimal. Adjusting it using with your PC's volume control gets greater results. The sound coming from the wooden subwoofer, and satellite speakers are powerful enough to fill my bedroom and through my closed door and through the floor to downstairs thanks to a 4-inch down-firing driver and a front bass extension-port (when cranked up you can feel it shooting pulsating air) When I cranked the volume up to maximum, I can detect a little distortion which sound a bit blurred and muffled. Unfortunately, there are no bass or treble controls which would help in reducing the muffled sound when you turn the volume up to watch a movie (the whispering are hard to hear and the shouting are hard to understand). Fortunately, I can plug my headset into the control pod and (surprise!) everything sounds clear as though I'm in a cinema. Music, especially instrumentals, with mid range being more prominent than the rest of the frequencies is where this system excels in. The bass will deliver a punch that you can feel which is more than I expected from a budget speaker system. The set-up is easy and there is nothing to download. 1) Connect the satellite speakers to the subwoofer. 2) Plug the power from the subwoofer to the surge protector. 3) Connect the control pod to the PC's earphone jack.

      Pleasent Surprise

      Went to Best Buy with my father to get some more items for setting up his new TV and he insisted that I pick something out for myself. My Insignia 2.1 speaker system was starting to go, so I decided to get a new 2.1 system, but I didn't want to abuse his generosity and pick out something too expensive. Saw these speakers on sale, decided to try them, even though they are a lot smaller than the Insignias. Out of the box the sound was about what I expected- flat and boomy. However, to my surprise they really come alive with a bit of equalization. After about 20 mins of making small adjustments I have to say that I'm quite happy with the results. Reducing the 125 HZ range will immediately reduce most of the muddy, boomy bass and an increase in the 8 MHZ range will really bring out the high midrange and lower treble which was missing. The big surprise is that there is some really good low bass in the 30-60 HZ range if you boost it- not boomy at all, surprisingly accurate for such a small subwoofer. Nowhere near as good as my 10 inch 100 watt Sony subwoofer on my stereo system, of course, but for a desktop subwoofer it's quite impressive. If you spend the time getting the settings right you'll really like the results, the quality is there you just have to find it. Volume is more than adequate for the desktop. I don't like the control pod. It uses a thumbwheel volume control, which in my experience is the first thing to go with heavy use. I'd suggest setting it about 75% and then never touching it again, use your PC volume controls instead. There is a headphone jack on the control pod but no secondary input, which is disappointing- with the Insignia system I could plug in my iPod and listen to music with the PC off, but not with this system. I would have been happier if the control pod was gone and the controls were built into one of the speakers, as there would be less wires and one less item on my desk. These are minor gripes, at the end of the day sound is what matters and for the price the sound quality of this system is very, very good with some tweaking!

      Awesome speakers especially for price

      I was looking for speakers to use in college as well as at home use. I found these speakers for $39.99 in the store. When tested and compared to other speakers next to it, I found these sounded the best, apart from Bose speakers. With the price they listed and the quality of the sound test, also from friends recommendations to get Logitech, I decided to purchase these speakers. I just got home and set these up, which took from five to ten minutes, including unpacking time, and played them at full volume from my laptop. At full volume there was a slight bit of distortion but it was very loud. Otherwise they are perfect for any other volume. I recommend these speakers to anyone and everyone, except for people who want to use at very, very high volumes. They sound very nice and work very well. The only complaint I have is the power cord length, just like every other person's complaint. It is a bit short, but as suggested by a previous commenter, purchasing a five dollar extension cord is perfect. A side note for anyone who wants to go into the store and sample these speakers, or really all speakers; You should bring in an external device, such as an iPod or Laptop. They provide more volume than the system Best Buy uses. By doing this you will be able to correctly measure the volume range of the tested speaker system. I hope this is helpful for everyone.

      Defective Control Pod & Too Bass Heavy

      Posted

      First, I feel it's only fair to tell you that I only listened to two songs through these speakers, primarily because during the second song, the control pod power light started flickering on and off, as did the sound to the speakers, and then the power to the control pod and speakers died completely. Ordinarily, I wouldn't review a defective product, but I also found the amount of bass these speakers produced to be nothing short of annoying (at a moderate volume with songs I wouldn't consider to be bass heavy). I don't know how to explain this well because a buttload of bass seems like it should be a good thing, but it's not so great if it completely drowns out everything else. Nor is it ideal if the satellite speakers make your desk vibrate, and there is no way to adjust the level of bass, and you feel like you'd be more comfortable if the speakers were a much greater distance from you. Like on the other side of the room. Or in the next county. Literally, it made my eyes feel as if they were on the verge of watering. Again, I wouldn't ordinarily review defective products, but other reviewers mentioned the bass issue as well, so it clearly wasn't part of this product's defectiveness. Mind you, I wasn't exactly happy about receiving a set of speakers that didn't work properly either, but that's neither here nor there.

      Great Speakers for an amazing price

      I was in the market looking for a set of speakers to hook up to my gaming set up. I hook up my ps3 to a Samsung LED Monitor, and have a gaming headset, since the monitor does not have built in sound. With that said, I went into Best Buy looking to purchase just some simple computer speakers(I was already thinking about some store brand satellite speakers), for the occasions when I want to kick back and watch some netflix. I came out with these speakers because I own some logitech products such as the s715i iPod dock and they never disappoint, and the fact that I was able to get a 2.1 setup for $40 did not hurt either. The speakers and subwoofer are pretty small (the box is smaller than that of the wii), so I was very eager to hear how they sounded. Packaging was simple, and setup was a breeze. The sound coming out of these little things are amazing. I've watched a few of the blu rays I got for Christmas and also played some of my ps3 games, and these things pack a punch. They fill up the room nicely with great undistorted sound, and the speakers being so small really grew on my because they don't take up any major real estate on my desk and the subwoofer is easily placed underneath it. The only negative I had about the system, is that there is no bass control. At higher volumes, the bass is pretty good, as it keeps a good ratio, but I would have loved to have the option. It isn't a big negative for me though. For $40, this is an amazing set of computer speakers. I recommend these for anyone looking for great quality sound for a bargain price. Don't let the size of the box fool you, these things are amazing!

      I am a closet DJ, and use Virtual DJ to create mixes for myself and friends. I was using a speaker set up without the sub, and always had issues determining the bass levels until after I was done and put the CD in my SUV. Wanted to buy something nice, but not needing to go all Bose, H&K, etc level. Just wanted to hear good sound. I researched a few places, and went to Best Buy to check out the demos. Let me tell you, I was happy with the demo, but when I brought it home, I was even happier. What a huge difference from what I had. The highs were sharper than some of the other ones priced from the $60-$80 range, and the mids came out strong. What impressed me the most was the bass. Being on my computer desk, I am able to really hear the different levels of bass. Obviously it will not compare to higher end uones (+$100), but for your money, it cannot be beat! So be realistic, you're not going to feel the bass hit you, but you will be able to hear the subtle levels of lows in a song. The volume knob and headphone plug ins are nice features, but really, I was amazed at how much quality you get for around $55. If you want to improve your existing set up, hear some more detail in the music you are playing, and don't want to spend a whole lot, then I wholeheartedly recommend this product. I just did a 6 hour mix and was amazed at how nice it sounded while mixing.

      Brings the bass AND the boom!

      I wanted to kick up the audio on my six-year old Asus computer, and I saw some great reviews on the Logitech Z313, (AND they were on sale!), so I decided to order it. +1! - The unit arrived sooner than I expected, Thanks, BestBuy! +2! - Once I opened the package, the installation directions were printed right there on the inside flap. In fact, it took me more time to shed the packaging materials than it did to set up. +3! - I ran a test on the speakers using the 2008 Iron Man trailer. I only needed a little adjustment to the subwoofer audio control, and a little separation of the speakers to get optimum placement and terrific sound! The speakers not only handled the boom from a superhero movie, but also caught the small details like the swishing of ice cubes in a cocktail. +4! For all this power, the speakers have a very modest footprint on your workspace, and their sleek design and black/silver color scheme keeps the look classic and understated. Nice. From opening the box to actual use, I see no minuses here. For only $30, the Z313 will give you the most bang for your buck.

      Exactly what you expect, except louder

      You see the audiophiles that tend to review budget speakers saying "they're not very loud but..." mostly because they blew out their eardrums from concerts and loud music as children. These speakers are LOUD. Unless you're 2 rooms away you're going to hear it fine. You'll be using it lower than max volume for most usage. Setup is simple. Plug subwoofer into outlet, plug speakers into subwoofer, plug audio jack into desired device, press power button on inline controller. DONE. It uses an inline controller to turn it on/off and has an adjustable volume scroller and headphone jack on that. These are the best speakers in this price range. There's also a Logitech bluetooth dongle for sale that's compatible with these if you want that functionality. All in all, this set is exactly what you expect with Logitech's reliability. My old z130's lasted years and some abuse before a speaker wire started getting loose. I expect these to last even longer with much care.
