    Great speakers, ok software

    First off, holy crap are these speakers loud. But not only loud, they sound great. The bass is powerful but not overwhelming. I also like that it uses USB. It has the option for 3.5mm or bluetooth but I havent tried them. Sound quality gets a 5/5. The lighting is awesome. I use the audio visualizer by default, since I listen music whenever I'm not gaming and it's amazing. Syncs to music perfectly. I use the screen sampling while playing certain games and it's insane how well It works and how fast the colors update from the screen. It just works. You have to experience it in person. You can select which games you want to screen sample in specific profiles. Which turn on automatically when you open the game(s) you selected. Certain games have their own profiles for special lighting effects. Like turning red when your health is low. Which is cool. But I dont really play any of the supported games. But I knew that before hand so I didnt care. I mainly got it for the visualizer and screen sampling, and they work great. Lights are bright without being overwhelming. And you can lower them or turn them off if youd like. Screen sampling works fine on my 3440x1440 ultrawide. Would probably be better on a desk against a flat wall as opposed to a corner like mine but they still look awesome. Picture doesnt do justice My only gripe with these is the software. Personally, I say dont upgrade the firmware to 122.2.22. The sound quality took a nosedive. Leave it at version 122.1.21. Bass became nearly non existant. Sound quality felt flat. Luckily if you do update, u can downgrade by getting the old firmware installer. That being said, I'm happy with my older firmware. Secondly, there are 2 different software sites to use. Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) and G Hub. Personally, I think G Hub was God awful for setting these up. Overly simplified and far less detailed options to configure the lighting. Creating and editing profiles felt like a chore. Everything just felt hidden in sub menus. LGS had more options it seems, although a little less intuitive. Everything was out in the open. A little messy and overwhelming at first glance, but I like being able to see everything without searching through menus and options. A mixture of the 2 would be perfect. I got the software set up to do what I want, just think it can be improved. Lastly, I wish the lighting turned off when the pc shuts down, but since they use external power from the wall, the lights stay on until you power them down. Clicking a button isnt the end of the world, but having it turn off automatically would be nice. The software has an option to turn them off after X minutes of no use but It didnt seem to turn off. Or I was being impatient. Overall, I love these speakers. Having been on the fence about buying since the released, im actually happy my other speakers died and I gave in and got these. Worth the money and they sound amazing. Lighting is amazing. Far more than a gimmick. Software and firmware issues take 1 star off. (The pic shown was not showing the screen sampling FYI)

    Great speakers but not without some faults

    First off I'll say this, these are great speakers and if they fit your needs and price point go ahead and buy them. Nothing about the faults should be enough to deter you from buying them - but they are annoying and worth mentioning (below). Pros: - They sound great, I thought there would be a big drop off from my headphones on fps games in terms of locating people but that hasn't been the case. - They aren't headphones, this is dumb but seriously - headphones hurt my head and drive me nuts. - The screen sample lighting effect is very cool (once you get it working). - Software is easy to tune the speakers to your liking, yes the bass is too strong out of the box but it's an easy fix. - Appearance is great, I love the look of these speakers in the day time, they don't scream gamer - nice and sleek with great materials, nothing shiny here. - Works awesome for my setup on a big desk with lots of space in this room. That said, if you have a more compact setup, these may not work well for you. - Big, beautiful sub - again this could be a con for some. Cons: - We have to talk about the sticker on the sub, what the heck!? WHY would you do this Logitech!? Seriously, stop putting a sticker on the sub. Removing this massive sticker which is on the front of the sub left a horribly sticky and gross residue. These speakers should come with a free bottle of goo gone. Like I said above though, 10 minutes of elbow grease and goo gone (luckily I had a bottle) and it was all cleaned up - super annoying but not a reason not to buy the speakers. - Cables are too thick and need to be another foot or two longer for cable management. Sure the cables are quite long but I have a rather large desk and I wanted to put the sub in the corner of my room. Mission accomplished but not without some struggle. - It says it works fine with the existing Logitech software, it doesn't. Be sure to download the beta "G-HUB" software to get these working correctly for the screen sample lighting effect. Which is too bad, I actually prefer the older software, that said it works just fine now. This was actually very annoying, these speakers are new and there isn't much information on the internet about how to get this feature working. I was very close to boxing them up and taking them back to the store. - The lighting effect is cool but there is a noticeable lag. I hope they optimize this over time, it's unfortunately noticeable especially in a fast paced game. I definitely get the sense it isn't just magically throwing the colors up on the walls, it's processing through a software. - Button placement on the speakers is weird, I wish this came with a separate volume knob to sit on my desk and control everything. - Lights should just turn off when the computer is off. So yeah, it looks like the cons out weigh the pros in this review but they definitely don't. My complaints are cosmetic and don't negate the awesomeness of these speakers. I look forward to enjoying these for many years to come.

    Great speakers, with a fatal flaw

    Before buying these speakers, I was considering a much more professional (and expensive) setup, but prior to making a purchase, the speakers I wanted were discontinued. After another several weeks of research, I hesitantly purchased these on the recommendation of a friend. I was skeptical, because these speakers were far from the solution I was looking for, and I felt like the RGB lighting (which is a neat feature that I don't need) was driving up the price. I got them home, hooked them up, and found the set up with software to be fairly simple. The pre-programmed EQs were all terrible, but Logitech makes it very simple to make your own EQ. Less than three minutes, and I have them sounding pretty good. The one flaw with them is that, with a direct connection to the PC, they seem to only support digital volume control. When you turn something down digitally, the audio is essentially compressed even further, and the more compressed your audio gets, the worse it sounds. Because of this, I found they sounded fantastic at a high volume (and they are capable of getting VERY loud), but they still sounded poor at low volumes, with some lyrics even sounding distorted. At this time, I decided to try a digital to analog converter for my audio. The cons of going this route is that you lose control of the EQ and the lighting effects. You can hook them up digitally to set your EQ and then switch them to a digital to analog converter, and they will retain the EQ that you set, so its not a total loss, but you will still not be able to control the lighting on them. Because of this, I chose to simply turn the lights off. Connecting the digital to analog converter (I'm using a focusrite scarlett) dramatically improved the sound quality at all volume levels-especially lower volumes. In fact, I dare say they are the best sounding speakers I have ever owned. I am in absolute awe, and therefore I recommend them heavily- with some conditions. If you care about the lighting gimmick, just know that you will be stuck with digital audio, and your sound quality will be negatively impacted by volume changes. If you're an audiophile on a budget like me, though, and you don't particularly care for the lighting, pair these speakers with a solid DAC or audio interface and you will be blown away just like me.

    Installation was as easy as it can get. Unpack, place speakers, unravel the wiring, plug speakers into subwoofer, tighten, plug subwoofer into PC and power. It was plug and play for me, didn't even have to restart my computer or anything. The speakers are not too big, don't look bulky at all, and sound absolutely terrific. It seems like most of the negative reviews on this product are from when they first came out. Logitech has clearly looked over the issues and fixed them from what I can see. They are extremely high quality and you can very easily customize them on the Logitech software. The bass turned up is LITERALLY mind blowing. The bass that comes from these speakers and the subwoofer makes the walls shake in my room. It is very easy to switch between my headset and these speakers. I have yet to find a reason to regret my purchase. Would 100% recommend to anybody who might just watch youtube all the way to playing hardcore video games. If I were to point out 2 areas for room on improvement is 1- The price (but you DEFINITELY get what you paid for) and 2- the wiring for the speakers since its rubber and a little bit thick. TL;DR- Get these speakers, especially if you see them on sale. You won't regret it.

    I love music and I love gaming! I’m also a fan of those basic stereo set-ups that include two speakers and one sub. These speakers are awesome! I absolutely love them. I’ve had them for a little over a month now. I often play WoW or Battlefield and the dynamic sound you hear really puts you in the game. It’s got great lows and highs as well. One issue, you will have to turn your system volume down. The volume control is extremely sensitive. When my fiancé is home, I can’t turn it up higher than lvl 4 so I don’t disturb her. When no one else is home, they deliver intense sound!!! I’m scared to turn it past lvl 32!!! All in all, these speakers are epic. I’m coming from a Klipsch set-up. I had that set-up for almost 7 years!!! These speakers are a great upgrade/replacement and they look so sexy when matched with my PC LEDs!

    I had been looking at these for some time when I found them at my store on sale. I absolutely love these (once I figured out how to actually use them). I'll explain the last part, Logitech provides no real instructions on them. Basically, they come with instructions on how to hook them up and a note to download the software. It goes down hill from there. Logitech assumes you will know how this all works. They work and sound great right out of the box but in order to use them fully (lighting and sound settings) you have to download eiother Logitech's gaming software or it's newer G HUB software. The problem is that they do not always load all the drivers needed to get the full effect of the speakers. Logitech's own support forums are full of these issues and it's support is useless. After spending hours tinkering around in device manager, I discovered that the proper drivers weren't installed. I had Windows find and install them. After that, life was good and the lighting effects are awesome.

    The real deal

    Posted
    Robert

    I've had a few different speakers on my PC over the years. While nothing beats my Klipsch audios I had 10 years ago, these ones come close. The lighting and everything is cool, yes. It's not a need for sound. The sound is clear with music and gaming. The other reviews are a toss up between too much bass and not enough bass. It depends on what you're using your speakers for and how you have your mixer set. With music I can't put my sound above 6 to 10 volume and it's super loud. With gaming, a bit higher. You just have to adjust the volume for individual programs. And if you have Windows 10, that's not hard to do. Other nice features are how easy these are to set up. I like that you can use it with Bluetooth so it's not just for your PC, you can use it on any device with Bluetooth! As far as computer speakers go, these are 240Watts. Look at other speakers, they're about half of that. If you're serious about gaming/pc sound, but don't want to spend a fortune, these are about as good as it gets for sound quality. Plus they plug in with USB. All around great setup! The sub is NOT that huge either for the sound it has.

    Good Speakers, RGB Cool but Gimmicky

    I was in the market for some new speakers, and this was the best set at my local Best Buy. I was too impatient to order a higher end Klipsch setup or the like, so I took a shot with these and have overall been very pleased! The sound quality is actually really good, and the profiles in the Logitech Gaming Software that auto-detects games and adjusts works very well so far. The RGB is cool, and it does add to immersion a bit responding to games, but it's not as groundbreaking as it is marketed to be and it is a novelty that does wear off fairly fast. As some people have lamented, the lack of bass control and whatnot can be disappointing, but you DO have EQ controls that can help to some extent within the Logitech software (and the latest firmware update supposedly smooths the volume curve a bit and whatnot). The sound quality is pretty good for the money in music, games, etc. and does a decent job at producing a sound stage for enemy steps and abilities in games online, and it is a fairly clean setup. Overall I am happy with these and don't regret grabbing them. If you have other Logitech gear the RGB does mesh well with that, so worth considering if you're into that whole scene.

    Overpriced and Overrated Speakers

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    These speakers are absolutely overrated - do not buy them. Just perform a quick Google search for "Logitech G560 won't turn on" or "Logitech G560 no sound" and you'll see the countless frustrated users trying to figure out what's gone wrong with their equipment. I purchased these speakers about a week and a half ago. I immediately had issues connecting via Bluetooth, so had to hardwire the connection via USB. Unfortunately, within a week, the speakers had stopped turning on. The issues that day started with the lights failing to activate, and they culminated with an hour long conversation with a Logitech representative trying to troubleshoot their complete failure. These speakers are a hard pass. When they clock in just shy of $200, having them work is a perfectly reasonable expectation. Unfortunately, Logitech has put absolutely no work into fixing persistent firmware issues that clearly date back to the product launch, rendering a non-zero number of these speakers completely useless.

    What an awesome set of speakers, complete with tons of software settings for loads of features for sound and lighting to match any personal need. Whether it's for music, gaming or movies, these speakers sound fantastic! The bass is intense, but doesn't overpower the treble and mids. The lights can sync with certain games like Overwatch and Fortnite and the list keeps growing. They look cool too and don't take up much space. The bass box also doesn't require a power cord, as it's USB powered. There's also a G button on the left speaker than can be custom configured to perform various functions; very handy. Best bang for the buck 2.1 channel speakers!!

    Was looking for a system to replace my old 5.1 PC surround system. My main concern was how would the sound be going from 5.1 to 2.1. I can say that the sound was better than expected the 7.1 DTS ultra object sound definitely does a good job. My only complaint was there is no bass slider like my old system so you may have to do some EQ tweaking. The reactivate LEDs are nice but can be distracting sometimes especially when playing a game. I tried having them react to sound in a game it was really distracting. I like the reaction based on screen zones better. Still playing around with the software to dial things in there is way more customization than I expected. So far I'm really happy with the system just need to use it more.

    I've been giving these speakers a chance for about three months now. Passed the return deadline. My personal experience they are great when they work. I've had them work for a few days and then just stop producing sound. Go into all the speaker settings and still no sound. Then out of the blue they start working again a few days later. I will say the lighting effect always works with no problems. First set of speakers that I've connected with a USB cable before. Not sure if that is part of the problem. Connected speakers to PC with Bluetooth. Get sound, but no lighting effect. Was hoping for better from Logitech, usually have a pretty good experience with their products.

    okays so i bought this product because of how cool it looked and would've gone perfectly with my pc setup. the RGB looks beautiful and if you've RGB setup this would definitely look good. BUT here is the worst part, after setting everything up and downloading the logitech control hub on my pc so i could control the lighting and with one restart of my computer it just stopped working. i tried unplugging it and re plugging it didn't work. if you read the reviews online a lot of people have this issue and for that price tag this should've been a better product and not be a pain. so without wasting my time i just re-packaged it and took it to the store and asked for a return. p.s. i gave the extra star because of its looks.

    Small speakers, big sound. I got this when my old Klipsch set went out due to a malfunction with the 3.5mm plug. I wanted something that was easy to set up, and this is as easy as it gets: plug and play. Because it's a USB device, it makes switching between speakers and headset super easy considering I am down to a single 3.5mm jack on the computer. I can use my headset for gaming/streaming and then still use my phone for music, which is pretty nice. I can even play music from my phone AND sounds from my pc at the same time through the speakers, if you're into that kind of thing. I don't care about RBG lighting, so I have it off, I can't say anything about it, except that it's easy to shut off.

    Lighting is cool, software and sound control sucks

    BearsIn3D

    I bought this system to go with a logitech gaming keyboard, mouse and wireless headset. The lighting is really cool honestly and the software they make you download works great for that. However, the speakers and subwoofer are just so LOUDDDD, I can only use the system on 12/100 volume on my gaming PC because after that it starts shaking my walls, this is NOT an exaggeration! The logitech software is supposed to let you make profiles so you can make a custom equalizer setting but mine never saves! I saw other people have the same issue and I recommend not buying this system because just for the lighting all the issues make it not worth it! Be warned!

    The RGB lighting on this device is awesome and if that's what you are looking for, these are for you. However, contrary to the reviews I read about this device, the bass is lame. Huge subwoofer takes up so much space and barely delivers. I'm big into sound quality and can be a bit of a basshead. I have purchased soundbars and other computer speakers that deliver far better and are half the price from Best Buy. In comparison, the Razer Leviathan soundbar (the ONLY Razer product I would recommend) is the same price but much, much more immersive with sound quality and heavy bass yet delivers no RGB whatsoever. Your pick consumer, RGB or sound quality.

    These speakers are loud. For $169 (sale) you cannot beat it. The low profile design of the left and right speakers mean I can put in front of the NVSurround screen setup I have. The lighting effects are a very nice touch, and they are not too dsitracting. I like the logitech software feature wise, but the interface could be improved. Volume control is good and the physical buttons on the right speaker are nice and big. Easy setup out of the box. Logitech fan, their devices are very good quality. Happy again, as always.

    Good sound and build. Logitech's software could use improvement. Speakers REQUIRE Logitech's latest software update to sound and operate anywhere near what is advertised. Equalization was not functioning for me on both the early-access G Hub application (nor the original LGS software). I also had an issue with Windows recognizing the setup as a pseudo 7.1 setup, (a feature of the G Hub application) instead of the true 2.1 setup. Illumination Features are vibrant and work flawlessly through the G Hub app.

    I've been pining after these for weeks, but after finally receiving them, I was disappointed to say the least. The sound is great, well made however, there are many issues using the screen sampler with a UHD monitor. After spending hours reading about the issue on the Logitech support forums, it doesn't seen like Logitech has fixed the issue. The software used to set up the screen sampling isn't very user friendly, and the UI isn't even scaled for 4k monitors. The left speaker stayed lit, but the right one was always dark, which many people with high resolution monitors reported but no fix from Logitech.

    This is my second set of speakers because the first pair died after only 18 days. Good thing I had the protection plan. I don’t think these speakers are worth $200. Maybe worth $150. The best thing about these speakers is the game sync feature. There is deep bass and these speakers are loud but the fact that my first set did not hold up at all really concerns me about them. Also the g sync button on the speaker does not register every time you press it. I like them but not for the price.
