    Not that great

    I purchased two of these Insignia wireless rear surround speaker kits as open box items. I wanted to hook them up to a Sony HT-CT100 sound bar. One of them had a defective optical output or input plug so the sound would not work using optical connection. The other one I purchased did work with optical but the sound quality wasn’t great. When I switched the sound to stereo mode with the remote it sounded very tinny with no bass at all. I know these are rear surround speakers but I would have thought they should have a little bass to add to surround effects. The other issue was that when I switched the speakers to surround mode a very faint dialogue could be heard through the rear surround speakers not just the surround effects. I was surprised at this since I thought no dialogue was supposed to be transmitted to these speakers when in rear surround mode. I’m not sure if I was doing something wrong but I couldn’t resolve this issue. It was distracting having the sound bar have the main dialogue but the rear surround also having a low volume of the same dialogue would echo off each other. I did play with the delay settings on the remote but I couldn’t adjust it to a good enough not distracting setting. I ended up returning both sets of these speakers. Best Buy to their credit was very good at taking back these speakers and providing a refund with no hassle.

    Got this wireless speaker kit to avoid running speaker wires to my surround speakers. First of all I hate the idea that you have to run the audio source through the sending unit. It doesn't seem to pass through Dolby to my AVR. Not good. I tried it anyway. I found the sound quality degraded when compared to my audio source connected directly to my AVR. Then the popping and crackling started. Whenever the wireless system is powered on it emits loud pop and crackling sounds through the speakers. So I would not recommend this product.

    These speakers would work fine if there was motion but if sitting still they would turn off. Makes no sense. Not sure how/why they would have any sort of motion detector and it wasn't advertised as such. Everyone is stumped on this one. Decent sound when used but not recommended due to odd issues.

    This system works, but the speakers are terrible. Little to no bass tone. Decided to keep the system, but only because I was able to replace the speakers with two used Sony speakers for a great price. Do not waste your money.

    Pretty straightforward installation but quality is poor. I got what I paid for. Only one to blame is myself.

    The sound was not good enough for me to use. Much better options are available.

    Might return the product if I'm not able to remove the echo.
