    Best Logitech Speakers

    Now that I share an office with my wife, 5.1 on my PC isn't really practical anymore. So I opted to go with a 2.1 system with a nice sub (aesthetic and overall perceived sound). I have owned two other Logitech 5.1 systems in the past. The older Logitech 5.1 system I have is the Z506 , and it has to be close to 4 or 5 years old. It still sounds pretty good (3.5/5). Before I bought the Z533 I purchased the store brand Insignia 2.1 that is/was $35. While the satellites sounded great to a certain volume, the bass was seriously lacking. The sub box looked nice, but it was weak. To compare, my roomba was running right near me and I could barely hear the bass on the Insignia. The Z533 has plenty of bass! When sitting at my disk I have it set to 1/3 max bass. I also really like the way the sub box looks with the Z533. I'm glad that it didn't have the copper colored Logitech badge on it that the store floor model had. The positioning with these speakers definitely matters. Make sure you have your sound set up properly as well (e.g. Spotify supports 24bit 48k Hz studio, don't have your speakers behind things, etc). Some games will only support 16bit 48k, etc. The only big issue(s) that I've really turned my head at with the Z533 after a solid day's use (on lots of different music, movies, and games) was once during a song with pretty distorted bass notes. The satellites just couldn't handle it and sounded pretty weird, thankfully I didn't have them very loud! The speakers do his, but it doesn't really bother me that much, when something is playing they sound great. They lose a star mainly because they just aren't 5-star speakers. I would say that these are 4.5 (Great) but not 5.0 (Excellent). I know if I cranked these speakers up they were tear themselves up pretty quickly, I'm sure there would be plenty of clipping. I was originally set on the Z323 (based on reviews and online appearance) when I first went in to exchange the Insignia set, however, while the satellites did look decent the sub was hilariously small, I swear it probably had a two or three inch cone in it. If you enjoy a good amount of bass, skip the cheaper sets with the tiny subs, you'll be glad that you did.

    Good sound for the price!

    These speakers have pretty good sound for the price. I've owned Logitech speakers for 15 years! My oldest set that I still use is the Logitech Z-2300. The Z-2300 is a system that needs to be heard in person to be appreciated, its audio quality is unlike any 2.1 system that's on the market today. Its bass response and clarity are just incredible even by todays standards.......soooo this Z533 has allot to live up to haha. While the Z533 isn't anywhere close to the Z-2300's performance, it does however sound pretty good. The satellite speakers could afford to have a bit less high end kick to them and a bit more mid range. The sub however is great, its not boomy sounding at all, in fact its perfect for me. It just puts out good bass. Just the right amount without being too much. Its not all perfect though, the control pod needs to have more resistance for the volume and bass controls. I feel they're too easy to move (the controls do have resistance to them but it needs more). The control pod on my Z-2300 system is great in this area to, it has enough resistance to move smoothly but not so much that its tough to move. I also don't like the fact that the control pod is hardwired to the sub, this is something that was a disappointment. It made setup a bit more difficult then it needed to be, setup took less then a few minutes but reaching down behind my desk to get the pod was a pain to do. So overall compared to the other options on the market the Z533 is a great product, its not too big and bulky and its not terrible sounding or to too bass heavy like so many other computer speakers are today. As I mentioned before the satellite speakers could do with less high end and more mid range, this is something I can fix in the equalizer, but its something to make note of if your heavy into music. For movies and games though it doesn't seem to be an issue for me.

    Excellent Computer / TV sound system

    I use a Logitech z2300 2.1 system (obsolete) with my main computer, an HP z620 with an ASUS Essence STX sound card, which prompted me to try other Logitech speaker / amplifier systems. The Logitech z533 replaces a Logitech z313 2.1 speaker system for a Samsung 4K 40" TV run by by an HP z420 workstation having a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card. The X-Fi to z533 amplifier connection is by good quality A/V RCA interconnects. The improvement was noticeable. The sound quality is very good, a substantial upgrade from the z313 and the wired remote (on/off, volume/ bass) is perfect for this use. The z313 developed a slight, permanent amplifier hum- even when not running- while the z533 is very quiet. The z533 is still compact enough for limited spaces. I place the satellite speakers on their sides under the Samsung monitor. A couple of small complaints: the large diameter volume control is too easy to accidentally adjust- it should have more friction and actually a separate on/off like the z313 is better- or have a mute button. Without a separate on/off, when muted for a phone call, I end up turning it off. The box for this heavy system needs to be heavier duty even when sent in an outer box. My first z533 (not from Best Buy) was damaged in shipping. The important z533 fault in my view is that the wiring for the z533 remote unit - as for the z313- is about 2' too short and permanently wired so as to make extension difficult. But, only the short remote wiring affects the use. I strongly recommend a good soundcard and reasonable interconnects to do justice to the z533. The z533 is highly recommended.

    Excellent Speaker For The Price

    I have used these speakers for 3-4 months and I am quite satisifed with them. The fact that a (quality) subwoofer was included, as well as the 2 stereo speakers was a great value for the price. The volume knob was also a very nice addition! My only harp about the volume knob and the power cable is that they are not removable, which can cause some issues at times, and create some difficulty, but nothing really major. Overall, these are actually quite excellent quality for the price here, and these would definitely be the PC speakers to get (if you're not looking to spend $400 on speakers). The speakers sound amazing, have an adjustable base knob, and again, are a great value for the money. I had an issue with the left speaker being quite quieter than the right, is I was able to get in contact with Logitech, and I was able to get a full replacement without even having to send back the old one... very helpful customer support. I was considering leaving a 4 star review for the issues, but I gave it a 5 since I was able to easily get a replacement and work everything out. If you're looking for good PC speakers and you aren't looking to spend nearly $400, this is what you gotta get.

    I am an OTR truck driver, i have a little flat screen tv with a dvd player & when you combine the noise of the air running, other drivers parking & the APU running, you cant hear jack from the tv speakers, even at maximum volume. I was looking for something that would overpower the other sounds & still sound decent so i gave this set a try. I was very surprised at the sound level & quality this little set has on my movies. Surprisingly it gives out a small theater like sound. The two satellite speakers are crisp & clear, even at high volumes & the sub responds to frequencies across the bored. Bass sounds clean, not distorted, even at high volumes. The three of them together sound really good, definitely a high quality sound at a decent price. Big stereo sound for a compact space. Im not saying its the best out there, ive heard better & have had better but for the price range I definitely recommend trying this set up before spending top dollar on a big name system.

    I did a lot of reviewing before I purchased this speaker system. I had an Altec Lansing set before and I really liked the sound from them. I wanted to stay with Altec Lansing, but I couldn't find any stores that had any on display for me to listen to. So I researched the Logitec brand. Getting a lot of mixed reviews, I was going to get the Z623 model but I didn't need that many watts. I read most of the reviews for 533's and made my decision. They are very easy to connect. I read that some people thought the speaker wires were too short. I don't know what they thought they were getting but the length is perfect for a desktop setup. The sound quality is outstanding. I did have to equalize to balance the midtones and treble frequencies. The bass is loud. I only have it set at half way, other wise it over powers the other tones. I'm very pleased with this product and I highly recommend them to anyone who needs to upgrade or replace their existing sound system.

    This is the third set of speakers from Logitech that I've owned. The first set I had were the X230's. They were pretty good for the price but lacked clarity and oomph. I bought another set of Z523 to replace those as they had "360 surround sound" and more power. I was very let down by that set. Constant problems, and weak sound. I decided to give Logitech another chance and replaced those with a set of these speakers. I am so glad I did. The sound from these is 10x better than the Z523 set and they're the same price. Go figure? For 100 bucks you'd be hard pressed to find a better set of speakers. The connections on this system are also miles better than their previous sets. Also, the bass settings on this are much better than previous sets where turning the bass past 10-15% made the sound rubbish. You get good bass from the satellites as opposed to just the sub. I would absolutely suggest these to anyone in market for new speakers. I plan on buying a second set for my TV as the sound from these blows away the sound of sound bars that cost $150+ Kudo's Logitech, good set of speakers.

    For a C-Note, Hard to Beat

    I hesitated on these speakers as they were to replace a Creative Labs set that cost almost twice as much 5 years ago. The Creatives had died, however, and my setup practically requires a control "pod" like this set has. My concerns were unfounded. Pulled the Creatives and set these in their place and boom! sound at least as good as the old ones. All while being better looking, taking up less space, and weighing less. Plus, the control pod not only has the volume control on it, but the bass, which on the old set required crawling under the desk to change. One small complaint: the control pod is permanently wired to the subwoofer, making routing it through all the cables under, behind, and on top of my desk more demanding than it needed to be. At a higher price I'd rate them a 4, but for a sub-$100 set, these are a five. Can't address reliability as I've had them running for less than a day. Time will tell.

    Great sound but stops working

    I'm on my second set of these speakers because they stop working after almost a year. I bought the first set from best buy almost 2 years ago and they sound great and look great, but one of the speakers lost sound so Logitech sent me a replacement. The second set was working and sounded great up until a couple days ago, until the right speaker lost sound again. Something in the subwoofer must be defective because I was able to switch the right and left cords, and the right speaker had sound but the left one did not. This time there's nothing they can do since the warranty is up on them. These speakers are great but only while they last. I've never had issues with Logitech products before but this one style of speaker keeps having the same issue. I do NOT recommend.

    Even before I read the specs and reviews, I had already made up my mind that I was going to purchase the Logitech Z533 speakers based on its looks. After the initial purchase and receiving the item, I was amazed by the fast shipment and how well package it was. Got my speakers, plugged it in, turned it gradually up little by little and all I can say is, No Regrets. My roommates individually came out to tell me they were loud and how much was it haha. And well a week later, 2 of them bought a set of their own. Also wanted to thank best buy for the price adjustment, I originally ordered it for $107.99 total, told a friend about it 2 days later. He told me they were $80 online now, called up best buy real quick and they were able to refund me my $20 back. So yeah, I can say this purchase was worth every penny

    I was looking at the Logitech z623 but it was not available locally at any retailer so I opted for the z533. This is a GOOD pc speaker for under $100! I replaced my Bose Companions with this set of Logitech speakers because I wanted more bass and the z533 pretty much fit want I wanted (more bass). The z533 isn't the best looking pc speakers and doesn't look as clean & modern as the Bose Companions but the sound quality makes up for it! The z533 has a total of 60 RMS which is pretty much enough to blow the doors off a bedroom or small room. If you are looking at more wattage (RMS) then the z623 would be a better choice. Overall, great price, good sound, and you can not go wrong with the Logitech z533! BTW, for the price of the z623 I was able to get the z533 and the Logitech Bluetooth adapter!

    Great Product and I got it on sale for $79.99, but the only thing I would suggest is to get the staff train to be more exited and ready to exceed on their customer experience, specially if you get video shops. I work on retail as a manager and I know how important is Conversion in the stores. I ask to a sales associate " Can I ask you something" and his answer was "If you want" he looks almost bored at his job. I came back with my brother in law and spend almost $300 on a nice receiver and the cashier act the same bored, not complimenting the item, he was only concern about the guarantee purchases, which I did not get. I had great experience with other staff members, but some need to be train so you guys can raise your goals and open more stores instead of closing them.

    I tested this out in the store and to be honest, it didn't sound all that good in such a large setting but when I hooked it up at home where it was setup in my office it sounded quite nice. I use it mostly to watch youtube videos at my desktop and for general audio. I don't game with it so I don't know how well that sounds but general music sounds full and good enough. I tried some of the cheaper speaks that ranged from $30-$50 from logitech and creative and they all sounded dull and tinny with bass that usually overpowered the sound. This set feels pretty balanced, I however did use the equalizer setting on my pc to adjust the sound to give it a livelier feel. I was pleased enough with the unit that I kept this one and am happy with the purchase.

    I bought this for my work office use. It's a great sound system. You will be surprised at the bass output. I almost think the bass capability may be a little too much, i.e. if its cranked to max you're making the walls shake. It makes viewing content through Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube quite more enjoyable. I don't have to strain to hear what I'm viewing and don't have to turn the volume extremely high as I did on my old speaker set up just to barely hear anything. It had gotten to a point my old set had such distortion that I had to put closed captioning on to make out what the person speaking was saying. I'm very happy with my purchase. Setup was a breeze. Warning there are cables, some lengthy, but you can easily manage them with cable ties.

    Started looking for computers to replace my PC speakers that I've had for a few years as they now sound muffled especially at high volume. I went into the store today and the salesman suggested these. What a big difference in the sound from this 120 watt 2.1 speaker system as compared to my old 40 watt 2.0 speaker system. Not only louder but clearer and the bass is not muffled. I have a large living room and guess this is what I needed. Paid $99 but compared to some of the Bose and other speakers I was looking at this is still quite a deal. Listening to Amy Winehouse tonight at lower volume. Addicted to the sound and clarity already. Don't want to turn them off for the night. Highly recommended by others on this website, I highly recommend also.

    I bought these to replace my low wattage speakers that just weren't cutting it for sound quality nor volume. The sound stage on these speakers are phenomenal as is the frequency response, and lack of volume certainly isn't an issue. The bass is not boomy or muddy even when maxed out and retains tight, articulate punch without drowning out the higher frequencies (make no mistake, though, the sub works very well for bass-heavy music as well). Including a pod that sits on your desk to adjust volume and bass levels is a nice touch. I run these through my Steinberg CI2+ and have upgraded to lossless audio playback with Tidal and I can't go back. Highly recommend!

    I purchased this sound system for the TV in my Winnebago RV. This is the second one of these I have installed in RV 's. I placed the sub woofer in storage space under the bed and put 2 holes to match speaker size to let the sound out. Then wired the room in 2 corners for the smaller speakers. I also had to buy an extension for one of the speaker as this application isn't for a desktop computer. Plug it into the TV headphone jack and turn on the power. WOW! it fills the room big time. I had people come in and at first they couldn't figure out where the sound was coming from when I put on John Wick 2. For the money this satisfies the need to get much better sound over the 32" TV speakers.

    I bought this as part of a deal: Buy a certain monitor, save $40 on speakers. I LOVE the fact it has a subwoofer. It also has a dial for the volume and an adjustment for the bass. Easy to hook up, GREAT SOUND for movies, Youtube videos, and games. After buying it, I taped a piece of construction paper to the volume adjuster so I could immediately turn it on without having to test the volume control every time. Speakers are clear, no static, and they were easy to set up. Lots of length for the wires, but if you keep the twisty-ties, you can fold up the extra length of cord and tie them to keep them tidy. They are currently paired with a 27" monitor and a Lenovo desktop and so far I'm very happy with this buy.

    As with purchasing a new computer the associate suggested this new Logitech speaker system with sub woofer. After having a sound bar on the bottom of my old monitor I had no idea how much better the sound would be. Not only can you hook up other devices such as a phone, tablet, I-pad to this with blue tooth but its primary function was for music, &movies on the computer. The speakers are super loud and clear even from a distance of over 15 feet, the sub woofer adds excellent bass to the music and can literally shake the house if turned up all the way. I primarily listen to a lot of hard rock, and metal so this was a great buy once again!! Thanks Logitech!!

    Amazing computer speakers. Quite powerful for my gaming computer & desk. As with all speakers they do need a little sound tweaking for each environment. I use Realtek with Nahimic 2+ For my sound control I highly recommend it! I really like the volume control knob. Just turn your computer volume to 100% them use the volume knob to adjust your sound. The speakers are good looking and the sub is very nice as well. The sub will vibrate the floor. The only con is what most people have complained about. The volume knob is hard wired into the sub, so you sub placement is limited. I had plenty of cable for my set up and most standard computer desks shouldn't have a problem.
