    Incredible Versatility, Sound, and Value

    |
    Posted .

    I've been using Logitech's entry-level $25 computer speakers for years and had never really given any thought to upgrading them until I saw the Z407 announced. I had to do a double-take when I saw the price: a subwoofer, Bluetooth, and wireless controls for under $80? Seemed too good to be true, but I'm happy to report that Logitech has delivered a superb speaker system at a remarkable price. === SETUP === The system comes in a compact but surprisingly heavy box. Be prepared to remove a lot of packaging and wrapping as the box is tightly packed. Unfortunately, the only setup and operating instructions provided are printed on the flaps at the top of the box, and it consists entirely of pictures and no text. Luckily, it's pretty straightforward to connect the system to a computer using the standard aux cable (included). The subwoofer basically acts as the hub of the system, with both speakers connecting directly to the subwoofer, and then the subwoofer plugged into your power outlet. There are certainly a lot of wires to deal with, so you'll want to have some cable ties handy or a desk big enough to hide the wires behind. My only complaint is that it's not immediately obvious how you switch the system between wired and Bluetooth modes. When I first plugged it into my computer I thought I had received a defective unit. Turns out you have to flip over the wireless control dial and select the desired input using a very small dedicated button. If you want to switch to Bluetooth, there's a Bluetooth button. There is a picture demonstrating this on the box, but again, without any written instructions, it's easy to miss. I love how the speakers can be positioned either vertically or horizontally based on your desk size or personal preferences. There is a removable stand for each speaker that makes it very easy to switch orientations. === CONNECTIONS AND CONTROLS === The system supports Bluetooth, 3.5mm wired, and USB connections. Everything is controlled through the wireless dial. The dial looks neat and functions just fine, but you'll probably want to download the full user guide from Logitech's website so you can learn all of it's functions and what the each light color means (white = USB; purple = 3.5mm; blue = Bluetooth). The only way to switch between these three connections is via the buttons on the bottom of the dial. I really wish there was an iOS app or Windows application that would make this easier. Rotating the dial adjusts volume. To adjust the bass level, press and hold the dial for 2 seconds until you hear a tone, and then rotate the dial to adjust bass. Unfortunately, there no way to tell how many levels of adjustment there are (for either volume or bass). Additionally, the dial does not adjust the volume directly on your computer, so you have two volume levels to consider: whatever your computer is set to, and the volume level of the Logitech speakers set by the wireless dial. You can also control audio tracks using the dial, but only when connected via USB or Bluetooth. One click = play/pause; two clicks = skip forward; 3 clicks = rewind. There is so much going on with the dial that I had to print out the user manual from Logitech's website to keep on my desk. I'm sure I will memorize all of it eventually. === SOUND QUALITY === Simply put, I don't think you'll find better sounding computer speakers in this price range. The down-firing subwoofer adds some much-needed oomph compared to a cheaper two-speaker system. And luckily, the subwoofer is relatively small and should fit in almost any setup. With the bass turned up about two thirds of the way, the lows on this system rival those of an entry-level TV sound bar. As someone who has been working from home for the past several months, I always play music from iTunes while working at my computer. And the Z407 truly fills my apartment with rich, full-bodied sound. It won't rival premium, multi-channel home theater systems, but for a 2.1 computer speaker system, I'm really blown away by the audio quality. Vocals and mids are crisp and not drowned out by the subwoofer. The bass is just punchy enough so as to not completely annoy my neighbors. === OVERALL === If you're looking for computer speakers that are a step above the average $20 or $30 pair, then the Z407 is an excellent option. It can play audio from virtually any source over 3.5mm, USB, and Bluetooth. It is stylish, compact, and offers incredible audio quality for the price. The wireless dial has a bit of a learning curve, and I wish there were some sort of app to control the system -- but other than that, there's very little to complain about. Highly recommended!

    All the essentials and then some, but not perfect

    For a set of desktop speakers to be truly great, they have be compact enough to fit on a desk and sound great. It may sound simple, but achieving both of those together requires a delicate balancing act and there aren't many speaker sets that can do it. This Logitech Z407 set delivers good (not great) sound in a versatile package that includes multiple connectivity options and a Bluetooth wireless remote control. The speakers fit nicely on a desk, with a subwoofer that doesn't take up too much real estate, either. Are they great? No. Are they a great deal at $80? Unquestionably. At this price, I can recommend them to anyone looking for good sound and great versatility. ~~Hardware and Setup~~ The Logitech Z407 comes packaged in a handsome, compact cardboard box that's small enough to fit under your arm as you carry it out of the store. The inner flap of the box provides a set of pictorial instructions that are enough to help you get started, and the components are packed smartly within. There are two satellite speakers with long cords that end in coax audio plugs, a subwoofer unit with a built-in power cord, a 1/8"-to-1/8" audio cable about 6 feet long, the Bluetooth control puck, and a set of AAA batteries. I had the whole thing out of the box and set up on the desk in about 5 minutes. Following the pictorial directions, I inserted the batteries into the bottom of the control puck, connected the coax plugs from the right and left speakers and plugged the subwoofer in. Then I pressed the Bluetooth button on the bottom of the puck for a couple seconds, which allowed my PC to find and pair to it. That's it! I was able to play music through the speakers within about 7 minutes of opening the box. The first thing I noticed about the speakers were the satellites feel really cheap in hand. Each one is basically an hollow plastic pill-shaped shell with a driver at one end. It's nice that they're able to be oriented sideways or upright, because it provides some versatility. I chose a horizontal orientation to have one speaker positioned under my second monitor. In this position, the satellite speakers are about 8" wide, 4" tall and 3" deep. The puck also feels fairly cheap, even with the batteries inside providing a little extra weight. It has a nice feel when using the volume and tap controls, but it's definitely not built to withstand a lot of abuse. I hope my kids don't get ahold of it. ~~Usability~~ Like I said above, I had music pumping through these speakers within 7 minutes of opening the box. Setup is pretty intuitive and the pictorial instructions are mostly good enough to fill in the blanks. The control puck is a really nice feature to have in a speaker system at the price. I love being able to control volume and previous/next track without going into any software menus or switching windows/tabs. I also love that the whole setup is virtually wireless on the desktop, as the speaker cables can be attached "behind the scenes" so to speak. I like the o The one thing that I had to take a few seconds to figure out was subwoofer volume control. Pressing the puck down for two seconds switches it from master volume control to subwoofer volume control, and pressing it again lock in the sub volume and returns the control to master volume, but that took me a minute to figure out. Add to this the fact that the sub is turned way down by default, and I spent part of that minute with anemic bass wondering if I got a dud. After figuring it out, I was able to set the subwoofer where I wanted it and all was well. I also tested connecting the speakers to my computer using the 1/8" audio cable and micro USB. Every method of connection works fine, and switching between them is relatively simple (buttons on the bottom of the puck). Most people will just pick one connection type and stick with it. I ended up choosing wired through the headphone jack on my laptop, because it gave the absolute best sound. ~~Sound~~ Here's where the rubber meets the road. If your speakers don't sound good, they aren't good, no matter how many other functions/options they offer. The good news here is these are good-sounding desktop speakers. Not great, but again, for $80, these are perfectly serviceable, especially when connected to an analog output. Getting the speakers set up through Bluetooth was so easy that before I knew it' I'd spent a good deal of time listening to music, and finding myself wondering if these weren't actually very good-sounding at all. I should add that as Bluetooth audio goes, these are perfectly fine, and once your ears attune to the sound, it probably won't sound bad to you at all. But I found myself missing some of the headroom and stereo separation that comes with hi-fi audio. Over a Bluetooth connection, my go-to test tracks felt boxed-in and chopped off at the knees. I see these connect with Bluetooth 5.0, but I'm willing to bet they're not using one of the better audio standards like AptX HD or LC3. Fortunately, trying other connections really opened up the sound. Over my laptop's audio-out/headphone jack, clarity and separation was greatly improved. Not so much that you'd mistake these plastic boxes for true hi-fi speakers, but markedly. Especially with electronic music, these speakers really shine. Tracks from Bonobo's Black Sands sparkled and shone with the extra headroom, and the bass was nice and tight in the mix. The plastic revealed itself a bit on "Come Together" and "Something" from the Beatles' Abbey Road, as Paul McCartney's bass sputtered a bit inside of the cheap speaker shells. Somehow, on the micro USB input, the headroom remained but the mix sounded tight and compressed compared to the analog output. I'm guessing there is some extra signal processing in place for the USB output, and the differences are small but noticeable. I'd prefer to use the USB output because I can put the plug in a hub I already use and keep it away from my hands, but suppose I'll have to make do with the analog output to get the best sounding output. In this case, I would have preferred an audio cable with an angled end so I could run the cord along the outside of my laptop. ~~Final word~~ Again, as an $80 consumer-level set of desktop speakers, these are great, and leaps and bounds ahead of what $80 could buy just a few years ago. Be ready to deal with the relatively fragile plastic feel of the speakers and the puck, and be ready to experiment with inputs and outputs to get the right sound for your ears, or just accept that Bluetooth is easy and sounds okay and go with what's simplest.

    Great Audio Experience without big price!

    Posted .

    Logitech has always delivered on quality components for PC users, whether for casual everyday use, work use, and even for gamers. They once again deliver a quality sounding 2.1 audio system geared for everyday use, which can double as a Bluetooth connected speaker for those devices capable of connecting wirelessly. Having owned a previous budget minded Logitech 2.1 LS21, with a fair audio experience, I was eager to try this upgraded speaker system, which is currently priced under $100 at Best Buy. In the box you’ll find a Subwoofer with an attached power cable, two satellite stereo speakers with attached RCA style connectors, a wireless controller, some AAA batteries, a 3.5mm audio cable, two speaker stands, and a warranty card. This doesn’t come with a separate quick setup guide like many devices but is found on an inside flap of the box for easy reference. Setup was fairly quick and easy, with the speaker cables color coded (dark blue for right), with a 3.5mm jack on the back of the subwoofer for those that need to use the cable, and a microUSB port if you’d like to connect using USB. It should be noted that the device doesn’t come with a compatible USB cable in the box, so you’ll need to acquire this cable on your own or use one you may have for other devices. The wireless controller has a door on the bottom, with an arrow pointing toward the direction of removal, for use with the included batteries. Some slight pressure is required but is no different than replacing any other remote batteries. The included speaker stands fit into small slots located on the back of the speaker and can be used both horizontally and vertically. You’ll find slots for both orientations on the back and is as easy as sliding into place. The bottom of the stands has some great rubber like feet to keep them from vibrating on your desk, and fit snuggly enough to ensure they don’t move. I opted to place them horizontally, which is a great option, since my monitors sit low and easily accommodate the speakers sitting underneath, at about 4 inches tall horizontally. If you’re wanting to have them in the vertical orientation, the height with the stand) is approximately 8 inches. Once you’ve installed the batteries into the controller, you’ll find the speaker already paired, and a blue light comes on (at least in my case) to signify it in Bluetooth mode. A quick press and hold of the Bluetooth button on the bottom, and you’re ready to pair with a nice tone played over the speakers. Using these with my Mac Pro (Desktop), the Bluetooth menu found them quickly, and were as easy as hitting “Pair”. The experience was about the same with my iPhone, with it pairing quickly and being ready to use. The great thing about using Bluetooth pairing, is that it will control the volume of the device, without needing to adjust any volume settings on your device. If you opt to use the 3.5mm jack for audio, you may need to adjust the volume down from max to ensure there is no distortion played on the speakers. While this is ultimately dependent on your listening preference, I found the Bluetooth experience to be easier and provide better audio quality. USB connection also provides a similar listening experience, if you opt to use the USB port, which offers plug and play operation on both Mac and PC. Simply press the line in button until the LED turns white, and you’re ready for listening. With the controller being wireless, you can easily move it to a good spot on your desk, or even take it across the room if you have the speakers set up on a shelf. With the speaker's setup, and my Mac Pro paired, I quickly launched iTunes to test music playback. Let may say, that going from another budget audio to the Z407 saw a huge upgrade to my listening experience. The speakers did a great job producing the highs and mids, while the subwoofer provided just enough bass to fill my home office. Turning up the volume, using the turn dial of the wireless controller, was effortless and easily controlled the volume of my Mac without any lag. The turning dial just spins, without fear of it hitting a stop point. So, if you decide to use the Mac/PC volume slider it won’t change the behavior of the dial. If you decide to use the line in 3.5mm jack, simply turn the wireless controller over, and hit the line in button. You’ll notice the LED on the controller change to purple for a few seconds and any time you change the volume. However, if you’d like to adjust the Bass response, it’s as easy as hitting a long press of the center of the controller and a tone is played to confirm you’re in Bass Mode. Turn the dial to adjust the bass higher, or lower, to your preference and you’ll notice the change almost immediately. At max bass setting, you’ll find a nice deep bass with no distortion; being a big upgrade from my older Logitech 2.1. To exit Bass mode, just hold down on the center, and a confirmation tone will play again. For play/pause function you can simply push down once; this also mutes the speakers. If you want to skip forward just push twice and skipping back with three presses. It should be noted that you can’t really rewind (other than restart a track) or fast forward/seek with the button presses. So, if you need to rewind or fast forward to a specific spot, you’ll need to do this in the app you’re using for listening. Overall, for the price this is a wonderful upgrade from other sub $100 speaker systems. If you have an older Logitech speaker system, this will likely be a nice upgrade in audio quality. The orientation of the speakers provides a great option for those who don’t have wall mounted monitors, or can’t have tall speakers placed, while allowing you to stow them under those on a monitor stand. I can’t sing the praises enough for the immersive sound, the look and feel of the speakers, and the wireless controller gives you better control and placement for your use. Whether your using this for work, music from you iPhone, or even gaming on your PC or console, you can't go wrong with this set!

    I am always listening to music, so when opportunities to review headphones, earbuds and speakers come around - I jump right in. Pros: Wireless volume control Great sound Easily tuned subwoofer levels Cons: Dial bottom grip affected by dusty and can then slip around Loud mode change (volume vs sub) chime Inconsistent browser interaction While opening the box for these Logitech Z704 speakers for setup, the wireless volume dial was right up top. While unpacking, it’s noticeable that all three pieces of the setup were packaged well. The speakers require their own wire with color-coded RCA plug to the subwoofer. The length of the wire is enough that I can use them without issue on my motorized stand-up desk in stand-up mode without putting strain on the cables. The speakers are a bit bigger than I had anticipated from seeing images. When on their side, they are 8 inches (20 cm) wide by just shy of 4 inches (10 cm) high and 3 inches (7.6 mm) deep at the biggest dimensions.. They ALMOST fit under my home made monitor stand as the front is too tall and therefore can’t go completely under (see pic). Pairing was quite simple given the button on the bottom of the dial. I paired it very quickly with both an Alienware Aurora R9 running Windows 10 and Google Pixel Slate running ChromeOS. Bluetooth selection from the device will steal it from the active one once paired, as expected and a chime indicates that there was some sort of pairing accomplished. This set also supports 3.5mm audio sources and those that connect via USB when hooked up to the subwoofer, should you not want to (or are not able to) use Bluetooth. Switching between the modes (USB/3.5/BT) is as easy as pushing a button under the dial right next to the Bluetooth pairing button. The wireless volume dial is a great idea and uses AAA batteries. It has a decent rubberized grip on the bottom, but make sure you dust your placement area first, the dial will slide around if it’s dusty. During all my initial use after setup, the subwoofer was emitting a static sound & popping. I reached out to Logitech with a video of the issue and it was replaced very quickly. The rest of the review is based on the replacement speaker set. I found the volume dial to be very responsive when in use. When your computer or other device goes to sleep, so does the dial. At that point, you have to tap and wait a second or two for it to wake up, so you can adjust the volume again. For example, I was listening for a while and got a call and I found that rotating the dial to lower the volume, didn’t do anything. Pressing down on the dial and waiting a few seconds gave me control back; I’d almost rather the action of rotating the dial be enough to wake it from a sleep / power save state. Adjusting the bass by holding down the dial is good and saves me from going under the desk for a manual adjustment on other vendors, however the chime to let you know you’re in subwoofer adjustment mode (vs volume mode) is LOUD! A chime more in line with the current volume would be better, but at least you know you’re adjusting the bass for that moment. Control of pause/skip/rewind does NOT work on Windows Chrome or the YouTube Music (YTM) App, but it does with Edge. Weird. Controlling the audio / music stream in ChromeOS with YTM in either Chrome or the App, works as expected. It’s tough to go to Chrome on Windows from ChromeOS and lose pause / skip capabilities for a browser you use primarily; I don’t like using Edge. On a side note, a nice minor change to the dial, would be a slight indentation for your finger, if you wanted to spin the top to adjust the volume like you were using a Google Home speaker, vs spinning it at the middle. I’m happy with Sound, the bass and overall appearance of the Logitech Z704 speakers. I listen to most genres of music, but am more regularly a Cali Reggae and Alternative Rock listener. From guitar to keyboards and brass, these speakers are nice and pack a punch when pressed to do so. If you need a nice 2.1 computer speaker set and don’t mind that the speakers need to be hard-wired to the subwoofer, I’d say pick these up. If you have a Tenkeyless keyboard (like me!) and it doesn’t have volume control, the wireless dial is a time and annoyance saver. Or, if you have anything that supports a 3.5mm plug for output and no Bluetooth (old iPod, Echo Dot, etc.), this will bring life back to the old device and/or add superior audio value wherever it’s used. Overall, it’s a nice setup and if the design works for you, I have no doubt that the sound will be delivered.

    Brought Netflix Nature documentary to LIFE !!

    Posted .

    It’s been quite some time since I’ve purchased a dedicated computer sound system, and have grown accustomed to using bluetooth earbuds, or built-in computer monitor speakers, that _seemed_ adequate enough. Well, after launching a David Attenborough Nature video on YouTube and comparing the difference, I now see what I’ve been missing. Affordable computer audio got good real fast. His voice had the deep baritone and breathiness that brought the Serengeti to life. My wife was working in her office a room away and perked right up and came in to comment how clear and good the computer sounded. I have to admit though that I felt stupid setting the system up, no instructions but none needed right, just plug and play audio. What I did not realize is that the control puck is required (operates on supplied AA batteries) and the pairing mode switch below the unit selects between modes. Once I uncovered this “a-ha” moment I was hooked. PROS ———— + Innovative control puck is brilliant + super simple setup, good wire lengths + sound quality for cheap system is surprisingly good + deeper bass than you’d think by looking at the sub size + incredibly affordable price well above entry-level quality CONS ——— -plastic speakers and control puck feel cheaply made -I had to look in the manual to operate and insert puck batteries -lack of THX certification like higher-end model -full wireless would make this truly next-gen CONCLUSION ———————— I thought I was fine using LG UltraWide 38” monitor built-in speakers (no slouch) for audio. I’ve had dedicated systems in the past but they were embarrassingly low-quality, tinny sound, cumbersome wires, and unsightly. While not perfect (can we lose all the wires?) the Logitech Z407 resolves any previous complaints, and earns a solid BUY recommendation.

    Amazing sound for the price

    Let me just start off with this if you’re looking for a speaker set up and don’t need something that is portable to carry around I strongly suggest you should consider the Logitech Z407. With that being said let me tell you why. The sound coming out of this 2.1 system is amazing. For my mid-size apartment, it was able to fill my living room with a rich clear sound with the down-firing subwoofer providing some clean hitting bass. My expectations when I saw how small it was were low. Don’t let the size fool Logitech has managed to pack in some serious punch on a small package that won’t take much space. If I did a blindfold sound test without knowing what it was I would say it sounds like something that would cost an upward of $200 and up. Just an FYI I have hardwood floors so in a carpeted environment, your mileage might vary. Since it has multiple input options you can use it as a computer speaker, 2.1 stereo system to upgrade your Tv/Game Console audio, or just stream some music from your mobile device via Bluetooth or 3.5mm aux cable. Logitech has created a very versatile audio setup that instantly upgrades the sound from built-in stock speakers. Another great feature is the control that looks like a hockey puck. The control unit allows you to pair your devices via Bluetooth, switch from Bluetooth to a wired connection, and control music playback. It does require x2 AAA batteries that Logitech does provide in the box. Here’s a rundown of the specs: Total Watts: RMS 40w Peak 80w Satellites Speakers: 10w each Subwoofer: 20w 3.5mm input Micro-USB input Bluetooth 5.0 Control Puck: Power, volume, bass control, mute, unmute, track forward, rewind, Bluetooth pairing, source switch buttons .etc, on wireless control. Overall: I was highly impressed with what Logitech was able to accomplish on both ends price and quality. The sound that it reproduces rivals speakers that can cost twice as much. I would even consider the Logitech Z407 over some of the big Bluetooth speakers unless portability is a must for you. “Reviewers in this invitation-only program are provided products for the purpose of writing honest, unbiased reviews.”

    Remarkable Sound and Features

    Posted .

    I’ve been a fan of logitech for over a decade now and have used many of their products from mices and keyboards to headsets so when I say the Logitech - Z407 Bluetooth speaker I decided to give it a try. Inside the box, you’re first greeted with a quick setup guide on the inside cover, followed by the subwoofer, two stereo satellite speakers and their stands , the wireless remote, a pair of AAA batteries, the necessary connecting cables including a 3.5mm audio cable and some paperwork. Setting this system up was a breeze, as soon as you put the batteries into the wireless remote and plug the power cord that's attached to the subwoofer into an outlet the two are instantly connected and you hear a sound that signifies this. The wireless remote by default was in the bluetooth pairing mode( noted by a blue blinking light on the remote) and I tried pairing it to both my phone and my computer and there were no issues there. You are also given the opportunity to connect not only by bluetooth but also by 3.5mm audio cable and also a usb audio cable (not provided in box). Each of these ports can be found on the back of the subwoofer. Some things to note are that the dial is very intuitive to use. Not only are the controls displayed on the transparent wrap covering the dial but if you have used any recent bluetooth headphone the controls will be familiar such as depressing the control once to play/stop and double depressing to skip to the next song etc. Turning clockwise increases the volume and anticlockwise decreases it. You are also able to control the bass level from the remote. Depressing the remote for more than 5 secs will put you into bass control (noted by a distinct sound that plays) where increasing/decreasing is based on clockwise/anticlockwise turns. To exit bass mode just depress the remote again until the sound is heard once more. On the underside of the remote u will find the plate you need to remove to insert/remove batteries as well as two buttons, one for bluetooth connectivity and one that cycles through the other two audio connection modes, i.e 3.5mm cable (magenta) and usb cable(white). The satellite speakers design allows for their stand to be either placed at their base or at their sides allowing for vertical and horizontal orientation. I greatly appreciate having this option and can tell I’ll be going back and forth between these two stances. So how do they sound…. Great. I have had more expensive computer systems and at this price point and sound I am all in. I threw various audio files and programs at it, even games and I was still pleasantly surprised at how well it performed. Interestingly enough I must say audio sounded better/ more impressive when connected through bluetooth ( I swear!!). Music and movies sounded great and the bass was just enough to feel enough boom to the audio without any distortion even when the bass mode was at max.I must also note that the remote control effect was instantaneous, meaning I noticed no lag while using the remote. This system is great and despite this I know it is not for everybody. If you recently got a new setup or even if you don’t and you’re just looking to upgrade an older system you’ve had for while without breaking the bank, I highly suggest this. You have multiple connection options including Bluetooth and the sound is great.

    decent speakers

    |
    Posted .

    The Logitech 2.1 Bluetooth speakers is a great entry point for anyone looking to get some decent sound quality at a fair price. There are some areas it does fall short so hopefully this review will help with your buying decisions. Let's talk about the basics here real quick. Out of the box your going to get your two speakers, main bass box, all the necessary wires and a wireless hub to control sound and playback. Let me start by saying this is a Bluetooth set up and not a wireless set up. The only thing that is wireless is the sound hub which runs off of 2 AAA batteries. Set up is very easy and can be done either via Bluetooth or through the provided 3.5 mm cable. I tested this against my ps4, android phone, and PC. Both set ups worked really good through Bluetooth except my pc. While trying to run it through the Bluetooth audio was badly distorted and would not come through crystal clear. I can't really blame Logitech for this as i don't truly know where the problem lies. What i ended up having to do was run the speakers to my PC through the 3.5 mm cable and everything worked just fine. One thing i was disappointed to see was the lack of a app to allow further customization of sound control and quality, mainly speaking of the bass speaker. The Bass speaker looks nice and with a downward facing subwoofer i was really hoping this thing would shake the ground when the bass hit. I was wrong however. Sound quality on this set up seems to focus more on clarity and vocals then it does on any other area. While playing games like COD, bass was decent around explosions and could be felt. Now don't get me wrong bass can be adjusted through the wireless hub however even at full setting it just seems like the unit is trying to hard to push it through. That's not to say the sound quality is horrible because its not. Your going to pick up on vocals and your highs very well and with very good quality, however compared to some of my other speakers that i have that are very identical to this set up, the Logitech falls short of keeping up. Through the wireless audio hub you can do some basic task like raise the volume, pause the track and skip/rewind the next track and well that's pretty much it. Overall guys im keeping this review short because, well basically this unit is as average as it gets. There's not a whole lot of features, and there is no use of a app to control features or fine tune your audio device Sound and voice quality is very clear with decent bass however that's about where it ends. I own a lot of Logitech products and for me this would be a hard pass for two reasons. One, i like full control of my audio sounds via a provided equalizer, and two certain sound qualities are lacking. Over all this is a great set up if you are on a budget or looking for some discreet speakers. For most people this is going to be enough however im very picky when it comes to my audio and at the end of the day for me, this a basic set up at best and nothing else.

    These Sound Great But They Are Advertised To Be "WIRELESS" So Makes You Think You Will Need Batteries Or Just The Power Cable And Everything Else, Cable Free. But I Was A Little Dissapointed To See each Speaker Has A Cable Connecting To The Sub-Woofer. Its Nice To Be Able To Pair ANYTHING bt* to Them. And Switch Between PC/Laptop And Phone Sound. No Need To Go Behind TV's Or Desk To Fish Around For The 3.5mm Jack

    Blown Away

    It has been a while since I've purchased speakers - my last audio purchase was a sound bar about 3 years back for $250 - so I didn't know what to expect for under $100. I wanted a sound system that could hook up to my PC physically, and my Bluetooth Record Player in the next room over (I'm not an audiophile, I just collect Video Game soundtracks, so the BT connection was my choice for now). I thought, 'if they suck I'll just take them back and connect to my sound bar' - but I fell in love with it immediately when I get it out of the box. The speakers look clean (I love the ability to turn them on their sides with the included platform), and the size if perfectly compact, blending into my setup easily. Connection was easy to both my PC and my BT Record Player. I would go with this model compared to the other because the Wireless Controller is an incredible addition to the experience. It makes switching audio modes quick and simple, and offers easy access for audio controls, too. Last but not least - the audio quality. I know I said I'm not an audiophile, but I know when things sound good. Everyone in the apartment was blown away and in love with the warm tones and bass you can feel in your chest. 5 stars, A+, 100/100 - if you're looking for a sound system under $100... what are you waiting for?

    This speaker set rocks! It's a great value for the quality. Negative reviews must be mostly from nit-picking about the term "wireless," the wireless controller itself, or from audiophiles with unrealistic expectations. Firstly, yes, it is wireless, because it has Bluetooth, and a wireless controller. The satellite speakers themselves are not wireless, they plug into the subwoofer like most computer speaker systems. Second, I read a lot of complaints about the wireless controller. It comes with a plastic protector with the functions printed on it. (See pic) We will just leave it there until we have them memorized, and I also have a picture now in case we forget a function, but really it's not hard to remember. The only difficult part about that is the functions being different if you use the USB input. These are obviously inexpensive speakers. But you get 3 different ways to connect, Bluetooth, 3.5 mm audio jack, (cable included) and USB. And you get a great sounding system with wireless control. It doesn't look bad, either. These more than fill our bedroom with sound, they enhance everything we're listening to. We use them mainly for watching movies and TV shows, which it is excellent for. The dialog isn't drowned out by the lows. They aren't bad at all for listening to music, either. They sound almost as good as our Sony sound bar system that cost almost 4x as much! Very pleased with this purchase, I'm glad I waited for these instead of settling for a different set.

    Far better than I expected for $80. Replaced an older Altec Lansing 3-piece set of speakers that I’d paid twice the price for 15 years ago. Connectivity was a breeze & sound beats the Altec Lansing’s by a long shot. Really glad I bought these.

    I've had a set of Klipsch ProMedia speakers since the late 1990's. Lately, they had begun buzzing and popping so I was in the market for new speakers for my primary computer. For gaming, I use a pair of good headphones, but for normal use, I wasn't looking for a 5.1 setup. I was OK with a decent 2.1 setup with many connection options. That's where the Logitech Z407 Bluetooth Computer Speakers come in. Let me just say that I'm a huge fan of Logitech Devices. I own Logitech gaming controllers, gaming headsets, webcams and several keyboards and mice. My go to mouse is the M510, to which I own 6 around the house and at work, and I have at least five MK235 mouse and keyboard sets set up at my house to teach coding to a small group of kids. This doesn't mean they haven't had some misses along the way, but overall it's a brand I've come to trust. To start with, the Z407 set comes with a wireless control dial. It runs on two AA batteries that are included and must be installed behind a sliding cover on the bottom of the dial. Rotating the dial, you can feel soft clicks like you would on a computer mouse, it intuitively controls the volume, but depressing the dial gives you playback control and bass mode selection. Short press controls pause/play or mute. Long press gets you into or out of bass mode where you can rotate the dial for more or less bass. 2 short presses skips forward and 3 short presses skips backwards. On the bottom of the dial are two buttons that switches input between Bluetooth, 3.5mm or USB input along with an LED indicator that glows blue for Bluetooth, white for USB or purple for 3.5mm. In my opinion, the dial could be a little heavier so it doesn't slide around my desk as easily. Also, while taking off the protective film, the top film was a little harder to take off, it also has all the indicators for the different controls printed on it. This ended up being good because the surface of the dial only has a "logi" logo molded in. There are no other control indicators so I ended up leaving the top film on as I learn the controls. The speakers are oval shaped and come with stands that attach to grooves on the back to support a vertical or horizontal position. Only the right speaker has the "logi" logo that can be read in the horizontal position. The subwoofer contains the power cord for the system and has RCA style connectors for the left and right speakers. It also has a micro-USB input port (cable not included) and a 3.5mm input port (cable included). The subwoofer is downward firing but there is nothing protecting the sub on the bottom except for the 4 stubs for legs. But in my thick carpet, the legs are consumed and the carpet brushes the sub. I was concerned this would muffle the sub, but it hasn't yet. Connecting everything was straightforward. I had it connected to my computer very quickly via 3.5mm input. Warning: the power on, mode selection, max and min indicator, and Bluetooth connect/disconnect tones are loud. Even if you have your volume turned down, they still blast louder than I want. While connected to my computer via 3.5mm, I could control the volume with the dial, but there was no on screen indication that I was adjusting the volume. Depending on the app, the play/pause function really only muted the sound. I could not skip back or forth in Windows Media Player. Since there is no app, I could not control any levels to customize the sound which left me a little disappointed. Sound itself was nice and clear and I found I could control the bass level with a decent amount of range. While connected to my phone via Bluetooth, I was pleased to find I could control the volume indicator when I rotated the dial. The play/pause function and skip functions worked well. I had a difficult time with the USB connection to my computer. First, Logitech does not include a USB cable. It's stated clearly on the box that it's sold separately. At first I didn't think this would be a problem, I have plenty of USB cables from various electronics. It's just a micro-USB on one side and a USB-A on the other. I tried two brand new cables that I had, neither worked. The computer didn't even acknowledge anything was connected even though I set USB mode on the underside of the control dial. I went to Device Manager and couldn't find any acknowledgement either. I scoured Logitech's website for drivers or any kind of tips, nothing. It wasn't until I tried a couple more cables that everything just started working. The problem is that you need a USB data cable. Up until that point, I had been trying USB power cables. There is nothing to signify that a cable is data capable. Once I found the correct USB cable, I was surprised that the sound is much richer and fuller. It seems the 3.5mm input is compressed and clips off the highs and lows. Once I was using the USB cable, the bass lines made themselves known. Not only that, but all the controls I thought were lacking due to the 3.5mm connection are now available. Pause and Play controls now work while playing YouTube videos. Volume controls now show up with an on screen display. Now that I've determined that USB will give me the best sound, it will be rare for me to flip to the other inputs. This is good because flipping between the different outputs on my computer has got me shaking my head and cursing myself for not always coordinating the input mode on the dial and the output mode from my computer. I'm also a little disappointed that there isn't a headphone jack from the speakers. The system also lacks a power switch so that it isn't consuming power while not in use. Overall, the Logitech Z407 Bluetooth Computer speakers is a very nice system. It offers nice, rich sound and is capable of a lot of volume. Of all the shortcomings I identified, I would really like an App like the Logitech G Hub that would allow me to change the sound a little bit and turn down the volume of the indicator tones.

    I actually really like these. I have a "real" audio setup at one of my computers that sounds great, but these are the best reasonably priced all in one pc speakers I have heard yet. I recommend using USB to the PC so you can control the windows volume directly from the control pod. I like how the satelite speakers can be mounted horizontally and they use a 6ft cable each, none of those super thick cables of the past logitech systems. Sound quality, these are very clear and balanced for the price. Most people would be hugely impressed.

    Simple, Compact 2.1 System Does the Job

    |
    Posted .

    Background: We’ve been using Logitech products since 2008 & have enjoyed a combined total of at least a dozen Logitech mice, keyboards, speaker systems, & gaming hardware over the last decade+. Given that I purchased a Logitech Z-5500 Dolby Digital (DTS/THX-Cert.) 5.1 Surround Sound 505W Speaker System for my wife’s home office back in 2009, which she’s still enjoying to this day, she decided to return the favor by ordering a Logitech speaker system for my little Dell All-in-One (AiO) desktop. Enter the affordable, compact Z407 2.1 speaker system. Initial Reaction: My wife had just completed the easy 10-min. setup of these new speakers when I walked into my den, & she hit “Play”. That’s when I heard the distinct guitars & thumping bass emanating from my PC as she streamed Adani & Wolf’s rich instrumental, Wings of Santa Lucia. I confess; I couldn’t stop smiling. I’d forgotten just how much I enjoy taking an occasional break & being able to hear good music thru my computer. Setup: Initially, my wife connected the speakers to my PC via Bluetooth. While the wireless pairing was simple & quick, after witnessing the lag between audio & video, I was immediately persuaded to go w/a wired option. And although the 3.5mm connection worked fine, I like to keep my AiO display’s 3.5mm jack free for headphones. In the end, I connected the speakers via the 3rd remaining option—using my own USB cable. (Unfortunately, Logitech does not include this cable.) I simply ran the cable from the USB port on my PC to the micro-USB port on the subwoofer. Speakers: While these little speakers include digital signal processing (DSP) & a downward firing subwoofer, they’re admittedly underpowered w/just 80W peak power, 40W continuous/RMS, & 20W bass. They’re obviously not designed for audiophiles. But if you have limited desk space & you’d like something at a low price pt. that sounds a lot better than your avg. desktop monitor’s typically lame resident speakers, then this little system will do the job for you. And you can also use these speakers w/your Bluetooth- &/or 3.5mm-jack-enabled smartphone, tablet, or laptop. The twin, lightweight, matte graphite gray satellite speakers can be positioned vertically or horizontally, using their included stands. I chose the vertical option w/the smaller footprint to conserve space atop my Varidesk. Audio Controller: As for the controller, I’m not a fan. I’ve already had plenty of experience w/this type of remote-control disk w/a previous competing 2.1 computer speaker system that I bought way back in 2008. It was a wired disk controller that illuminated when touched, whereas Logitech’s wireless disk controller (operates on 2 AAA batteries) doesn’t illuminate the controls which are located atop the disk. So, if you’re gaming or streaming movies, music videos, or podcasts in low-light conditions, it can be a challenge to operate even the simple functions of playing/pausing, skipping/rewinding, muting/un-muting, & controlling volume/bass, especially if you remove the clear stick-on “cheat sheet” overlay from the top of the control hub. Overall, the audio control pod has a bit of a cheap, clunky, plasticky feel, & not all the controls are as consistently responsive as I’d hoped they'd be when I press on the disk. (The “Rewind” symbol, for example, at least on my hub, doesn’t provide a confirming tactile detent.) I do like the popup controller options that appear on my display w/my USB connectivity, but I wish there were more audio control options, such as an equalizer, though that may be too much to ask at this price pt. When it comes to a separate hardware controller, I think I’d much prefer a small, traditional handheld remote control (preferably lighted). Bottom Line: This little 2.1 Bluetooth computer speaker system offers some good, punchy bass & adequate midrange & treble. Overall, it offers a good value for a compact system at this price pt. If you have limited space &/or a limited budget, & you’d like modern-looking, aesthetically-pleasing desktop speakers that provide a much better sound than the vast majority of desktop monitor-resident speakers, then this is a good option.

    For the price, almost perfect

    Posted .

    The bottom line: For the price, the sound quality and functionality is on point. You won't be disappointed with this $80 speaker set. The Pros outweigh the cons: I've been waiting to get a hold of new computer speakers for my WFH setup - I had gone through months just using my laptop speakers while connected to my external monitor, which worked but having dedicated external speakers makes the entire experience a little more wholesome. Out of the box: Well packaged, directions are right on the box as well. The subwoofer is definitely smaller than my first set of Logitech speakers years ago, though the actual speakers are larger than I had originally imagined. I had hoped that it would have been thinner/ smaller and heavier. For the size of the speakers, you'd think that it would have some weight to it - but it's pretty lightweight, you can place it anywhere but you could just as easily knock it down. But I do like that you can style it the way you want: lay them vertically or horizontally. I personally laid one vertically and one horizontally. The wireless control automatically is paired with the speakers and easily pairs via Bluetooth with my laptop, tablet, and phone without issues. It also has the ability to connect via AUX and USB. Controlling the knob is seamless though I wish there was more of a touch feature rather than pressing the knob in order to pause, skip, and rewind. Sound quality is excellent for my intended use, I'm not using it to turn my desk space into a surround sound experience but for everyday work and occasional media usage - it satisfies my needs as an average user. Whenever I'm watching a movie or listening to music the sound is immersive with strong, deep, rich, and clear bass. Overall, sound quality is excellent for its price range. Though I wish that there was a software interface to control the EQ using the dial, as of now it's only used for simple control: play/pause, rewind, forward, and increase/decrease volume.
