    Special Product

    I have a Sony Bravia Tv with an optical out I run into Klipsch The sixes speakers. The Bravia also has a separate audio out that can run simultaneously with the optical. Since the optical out is stereo 2.1, I was missing a "simulated" surround sound that imitates 5.1 through the DTS package in the Bravia TV. Although the insignia speakers seem small, they are weighty and have a bit of power. I am generally pleased with their clarity. The wireless works well, and fits my system. I didn't need or want more power, so the speakers also add a bit of highs to the sound that was seemingly a bit lacking, besides producing sounds to the rea of my room. The remote works well with the wireless and compliments the system and my other remotes. I have no wires crossing my floor which makes my wife very happy.

    This unit is a great idea for those who don't have/want a higher end sound bar that is compatible with wireless rear speaker kits (for example Samsung or LG). They work great but be warned, check to see if you have an optical in AND an out on your sound bar. If you don't you will be stuck like me only having them plugged into the cable box has my sound bar only has an optical in. They work great when I watch cable, but of course they don't work when I use my UHD Blu-ray player or Xbox (all items plugged into my sound bar). Overall they are a great speaker kit.

    Work well, but takes over complete control of my LG sound bar. Don’t know if this is the case with all sound bars or not. What I mean here is, if I don’t power on the rear speakers, the sound bar no longer works. So it’s an all or nothing situation. I would have liked to use the sound bar without the rear speakers from time to time depending on what I’m watching. System sounds and works great otherwise.

    These speakers were exactly what we were looking for, being able to hear our bedroom tv without turning up the volume so loud it would be blaring, and not a bad price. Easy setup. Only issue keeping it from 5 stars is that recently, the signal gets lost between the speakers and we have to turn them off and back on to get to listen to the program again. Very frustrating when you are watching live news or at a good point in a show. Could be better, but not bad.

    First of all its a great idea of being able to get real surround sound (not fake) for any existing source( with optical works best). It does great job on that. You can control real volume , delay, master volume etc with remote. Gets really louder for small or medium room. Sound quality could be better but its inexpensive,, you can replace with other speakers

    What I was looking for

    Purchased these on sale after eyeing them for a while. They do what I wanted them to do. Video games, movies and sports were enhanced to the expectation of the purchase price. Nothing super special but buy a surround system for $500+ for that. I had to make some tweaks for them sound just right. 4 stars, you won't be disappointed if your expectations are realistic. Would recommend.

    I got this in sale and it was definitely worth it. I was able to set this up for my parents in their home with little fuss. The sound is quite loud, and syncs well with the video on screen. Surround sounds are not as distinct as some more expensive brands, but there is definitely some separation that makes for a larger, fuller experience.

    Hooked them up through my vizio sound bar and they worked after about 10 minutes of playing with both remotes. The sound is pretty decent for the price and they are nice and small. The only real issue I have is that the remote for these speakers are basically line of site required. I am using them for my TCL Roku tv.

    Rear speakers for 5.1 setup

    I bought these because I wanted to have rear speakers for my living room but didn't want to line my walls. This is the only wireless set that I found that works with just audio in and has a delay set option. I did have to modify an example cable to plug into my rear speaker wires on the receiver to make it work but now it works great.

    As this has a passthrough for a soundbar it works really well! Adjusting the delay was easy enough. If there is one thing that frustrates me is that it won't pass dolby sound that is sent to a TV over HDMI as far as I can tell, only PCM. but thats a small nitpick

    Works great with my Samsung soundbar. Once I configured everything to my liking, all my entertainment sounds immersive. Only thing is that they pop with feedback once in a while but maybe that’s something I’ve done. Very light and easy to hang on walls.

    This product is great for people that have soundbars with no rear speakers. The only reason I did not give it a 5 star rating is it did not work going through the digital optical cable, had to use the auxiliary cable. But it still sounds great!

    These speakers work with my LG SJ9 soundbar. It's to bad LG's rear speaker set doesn't work with this model soundbar. The speakers aren't great but better than none at all! They were very inexpensive.

    My hopes were to have a completely wireless system but these speakers need to be wired together. This would not work for me in my living room so I returned the speakers. I can’t speak of the sound quality because I didn’t hook them up

    These speakers were exactly what I was looking for. I could plug these in an outlet by my balcony and hear my TV without blasting my inside TV speakers up.

    This is an ok set of speakers uf you cant find ones of the same brand as your sound bar. At the end of the day, they do work as advertised.

    Nice set of wireless speakers that I added to a great Insignia sound bar. Bought these on dealing the day definitely worth the price. Great sound for how small and affordable they are
