    Good speakers for its price

    I love great audio and have a good mid-range $500 5.1 speaker system setup for when I need that sound at home, but I wanted some decent speakers that could be use for a smaller space and the 5.1 system was definitely an overkill for that. If you are shopping for some decent quality speakers without a huge budget, but aren't sure what to get, this may help you. (TLDR: It depends on what you are looking for) For comparisons, I have/had the Klipsch Pro Media 2.1, The Logitech Z623 2.1 speakers, and a 2.0 speakers Edifier e25 Luna. All of these speakers I would say can fill a small room easily with sound, but aren't designed for big parties. The Pro Media and Z623 are closest in comparisons as they are both 2.1 speaker systems and are at a close price point when on sale. The z623 is slightly cheaper ($80), but is offset by the fact that it doesn't have bluetooth (could be a con, see below) and is slightly inferior in sound quality to the Pro Media ($100). The Edifier for a side comparison is a 2.0 speaker system that is significantly more than the other two when comparing sale prices as well (~$130-$160). Of course your mileage may vary with sale pricing. Overall, I would say the Klipsch has the best sound quality of the 3. It has the best all around sound in the frequency spectrum. I would say to get this one if not for one HUGE caveat that stopped me from buying it -- It has bluetooth that cannot be turned off. This means that if you have the system permanently setup, it's possible neighbors or people nearby can connect to it and ruin your life without you having any control over it. Deal breaker for me. There are non-bluetooth models around, but I haven't seen them on sale much. The Z623 was about $20 cheaper when on sale than the Klipsch, and has great bass and treble, but I found the mid range a little lacking in comparison to the highs and lows. This can be relatively smoothed out by using software equalizers to be better, but it was worth mentioning if you like/need having out of the box balanced sound. For the price though, they are still very good sounding and I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again at the sale price. Finally, for a comparison with a 2.0 setup, the Edifier e25 Lunas are beautiful speakers and also the most expensive of the bunch. Lacking a subwoofer, it's instantly noticable for music or SFX that has a lack of low frequency bass ~60hz or less. No amount of equalizer can compensate for the speakers not having a subwoofer. However for everything that heavy bass emphasized, it was fantastic. Ironically this was also a positive in my book because I wanted speakers that could play great music without bothering my neighbors at night. These speakers also have bluetooth that anyone can connect to, but the bluetooth can be turned off. So what's the best of the bunch? It depends on your needs. All I can say is that I wouldn't hesitate to get either the Z623 or Edifier e25 on sale as long as you understand their limitations.

    Great Speakers, Great Price

    I was all ready to spend up to five hundred dollars to buy Bose or Cambridge Works. I studied all the online reviews. A lot of people who seemed serious recommended the Logitech Z-2300 as being just as good. So I decided to buy that one since it is so much cheaper, but it seemed to be discontinued, and Amazon said that the Logitech Z623 is its “successor”. One of my requirements is the low end frequencies. I like pipe organ music, and the pipe organ plays down to the bottom of human hearing. An eight foot C is about 69 Hz, so the sixteen foot is 34 Hz and the 32 foot is 17 Hz. Logitech advertises that the Z263 goes down to 31 Hz, the Cambridge is similar, and Bose does not release the information. So I bought the Z623 on sale from Best Buy and hooked it up. There is a lot of talk in reviews about different ranges of hearing, and others talk about personal taste, but I use the “closed eyes” test. I listen to classical music, not artificial music, and I close my eyes and ask myself if it sounds as though an instrument is in the room with me. Does it sound as though there is a piano there, or a string quartet, or a pipe organ in the room with me? I started with Bach’s Passacaglia in C minor. It sounded to me as if I were in a recital hall with a pipe organ. I tried Sibelius Fifth Symphony, Rachmaninoff piano music, Brahms piano music, and various Mozart chamber music. I tried Mars by Holst, and piano concerti by Brahms and Rachmaninoff. I also tried vocal music by Palestrina and Josquin. When I close my eyes, I am unable to tell that I am listening to an IMac computer and speakers instead of live musicians. Some orchestral music sounds thin, but other recordings sound perfect, so I believe it is the recording that is at fault (or the compressed version on my computer) instead of the speakers. I haven’t done a blind test, but from what I perceive, I don’t think I could tell the difference between piano music on these speakers and the seven foot grand piano in my living room. Each time I listened to a piece, when I opened my eyes, I was surprised to see a desk, a computer, and some speakers.

    For starters/a background of my situation: I have this system setup in my office and use it for movies and music. I originally bought cheaper $20 Insignia speakers thinking they would do the job. Needless to say, I upgraded to a much more expensive system and have zero regrets. Pros: - Incredible bass: this system is 400 watts and you can feel every bit of it. I live in an apartment and constantly fear that even in the middle of the day the system is too loud. At less than halfway on the volume knob, you can hear walls and accents shaking in the room. The subwoofer is very large, but even the desktop speakers themselves are rich in bass. - Individual bass controls: there is a main volume knob for overall volume as well as a smaller knob that controls just the bass. I primarily keep the bass knob at 75% because at 100% it can be overwhelming and drown out sound at low and mid volumes. - Auxiliary output: this is both a pro and a con (see later in "cons"). Aux output is fairly universal so I can plug in my phone, laptop, xbox controller (game volume) etc. - Simple setup: as is the case for most 3-speaker sets, it is as simple as wiring both speakers to the sub, and plugging the sub into the wall. From there you can use the aux output to your device from the right-side desktop speaker. - Overall sound: as redundant to the incredible bass mention as it may be, it is worth noting multiple times how incredible the sound is from these speakers. The THX certification is not only heard, but felt anytime there's a 'boom' during an action scene. I'm personally not much of an audiophile so I won't overreach and try to do a breakdown of how the sound breaks-down at each level and decibel, but what I can mention is that every input sounds crisp, clear, loud, and booming. Cons: - Bluetooth: one of the only features that could improve this speaker set. However, this is not a requirement or huge drawback. - Design/appearance: yet again, not something that makes me think less of the speakers, but something that could be improved. There are other speakers, even Logitech, that have a much better look. Overall, these speakers are nothing short of incredible and I have no regrets upgrading to these. Most Best Buy stores I've been in have demos available - I would highly recommend giving a listen and seeing for yourself.

    Decent sound for budget system

    Bought this system after getting annoyed with the previous system sounded like listening through a cardboard tube. Moved into a new place where the computer room is a lot smaller than the previous place. Last place had room for a full bookshelf speaker monitor system with separate amp etc. Needed something that sounded good, but didn't take up a lot of space. Picked up a used system from goodwill to have better sound from the tv in the rv. works ok for that but really bad for music. Numerous reviews for the new logitec system rated this system close to the top (with the best seeming to look like it came out of the museum of modern art) I te nd to listen to what is called progressive rock, or prog-rock. Instruments rage from light acoustrical winds and strings to heavy electric bass and drums. On the whole, I like the sounds from this system, Highs are real clear and bass will have you moving. Volume sounds good at low levels, but still kicks out pretty well when turned up. There seems to be a slight lack of clarity in some of the lower mid ranges, somewhere between the mids and the sub, but that may be mitigated with an equalizer program. Sub fits under my desk with no problem and the main units aren't too big or obtrusive. Speaker technology has come a long way since I was a kid. Would have killed for a set up like this back then. To get any significant sound improvement you're going to either have to go to the 5.1 systems or start spending a lot more money. Keep in mind this is in a 10x12 room, and bigger rooms will require more sound to fill it. What could be better? I would have liked to see better eq control on the front of the speaker. Only has a volume and bass level knobs. I've noticed a small humm coming through the speakers while scrolling through web pages with nothing playing. Could be my motherboard sound card section, or some other rf interference. Could be the wires and connectors need better grounding or shielding. Not a huge problem and only noticeable if you listen for it. Slight gaps in the crossover frequency, again mostly if you're listening for it. Otherwise a good unit and doing what I wanted it for.

    Solid 2.1 + Great Sound

    DangerousGuitarist

    After moving my Logitech Z3's to my office, I was without a pair of speakers for my Mac at home. I was using the speakers for monitoring music production (in the rare event I didn't use headphones), playing my Line6 guitar through, and casual music listening. I finally decided to get a second set of speakers for home and after listening to other speakers in store (Kilps), I was less than impressed. Speakers in the same price bracket were lacking clarity and dynamics. Seeing these on shelf (but not displayed for testing), I looked them up on my phone to read a few reviews and knowing my satisfaction with the Z3's for about the same price, I was willing to jump before hearing them; glad I did. Though I'm not so pleased with the speaker shapes (kinda ugly), I was blown away with the sound. Dynamic range, high clarity, and the adjustability of the sub level really make this package an amazing bang for the buck. Though not audiophile level (IMHO) these speakers can do varying genres of music a lot of justice. As a musician with eclectic taste I definitely ran the gamut on this set: metal (djent/metalcore/Gothenburg/etc), electronic (4 to the floor, trance, dubstep, chill), jazz (standard and smooth), and pop rock/r&b/country. The sub can be pretty overpowering depending on the genre, but the bass level control really lets you dial in a good mix. These things are also super loud - I haven't worked them to over 40% volume at 30% bass. One day I'll rattle my upstairs neighbors >:-) In short: if this is what you consider to be a reasonable price range then definitely give them a listen (or pull the trigger like I did). You'll get good quality speakers that can give you some massive knock and some great projection through a room.

    Great Simple Sound

    I use my Z623 system mostly for cable television viewing. Its secondary purpose for me is movies from my laptop and lastly music from my laptop. The most important pro about this system is its simplicity. I do not own a full sound system because I do not like all of the satellite speakers and especially the accompanying wires. My system is in a 450sq/ft living/dining/kitchen open area in an apartment. I have very little sound absorbing material in this space. The entire area is bamboo floors with no window treatments; so, it is usually very difficult to find good sounding acoustics from movies. This system sounds amazing throughout the aforementioned area. The 7" sub has amazing range and is not over-bearing. I have my bass amplifier knob set at 50% and it is perfect for my application. The volume capability is well above "domestic-disturbance" levels. I have yet to find a volume high enough to distort the sound. Granted, I only tested the maximum volume for a few minutes with country music, but was very satisfied with the clarity. The appearance of over-engineered mid-range speakers is very stylish and gives the system a high-quality look. The sub is exceptionally heavy for its size; this is a plus for me because it at least gives me the impression it is made of high-quality materials. I say, "impression" because I have not had this system long enough to fully attest to its true durability.

    Logitech z623 review + Bose Companion 20's

    Bought a set of (Bose Companion 20's) at Best Buy when my old Altec Lansing ACS48s' right channel died (after nearly 20 years of total awesomeness). The Bose Companion 20 I had high hopes for, especially since they are $249, and have some positive reviews. They sounded decent in the store. The audio quality rivals the old Altec Lansing set, but is severely bass deficient (The Altecs had great bass and sound quality all around). I suppose one giveaway is the AC adapter, which outputs 18v, 2A. I looked at multiple reviews and Boses' website for the wattage spec, I never found it, but that's a maximum total of 36 watts. So these are about 16W per channel max. Bose makes amazing sound with only 16W per channel, but don't expect any bass. To be truly great, the sound needs to be complete, not missing any spectrums. I ended up returning them. I just installed some Logitech z623's. (I'm sure all the Bose diehards are groaning..). To achieve a balanced sound, don't turn the bass up too high. I put it just past the center of the dial, but I think centered is plenty. Sitting at the computer the bass sounds slightly lower volume than when I get up and walk away from the computer. These definitely fill the whole room with great sound! On sale for $129 also (so half the price). The win for me was these Logitechs.

    These speakers would still even be a great bargain at 200 bucks. The bass hits like nobodies business and has no problem rattling walls and knocking stuff off shelves in my room. The only way I would see anyone even remotely being disappointed is if they were expecting the bass to hit like it was coming from a 12 or 18 inch sub. These speakers are set up in my decent sized bedroom and a majority of the time unless I really want to shake things up, the bass knob never goes past half and it still hammers. Now if I had to critique anything the sat. speakers can be a little too high pitched but really isnt a problem considering there is EQ options in most anything you are using the speakers for to remedy that. Also the volume control after you get to about the half way mark is very sensitive as to how fast the volume increases in comparison to getting to the half way mark. If you do want to crank up the volume you want to turn the sub down a fair bit and adjust it back up just to be on the safe side HA HA. For the price I got these at I wish I bought 2 or 3 of them and just put them up. These speakers are great watching movies, playing video games and I have yet to play a style of music that did not sound good on them. I ran them through the bass music and I listen to mainly metal and this sub brings double bass to life and rattles your insides. If you are not an audio snob who needs a 5,000 dollar rig to listen to music you will not be disappointed in any way with these speakers and that is my opinion :)

    I bought these to replace a more expensive set of Klipsch 5.1 speakers for my office and I'm very happy with what you get for the price. The bass is maybe a bit less crisp than the Klipsch but is still very good. There is no noticeable hiss or distortion and the satellites sound surprisingly good. The Klipsch speakers I replaced had an annoying loud hum if left on when the computer was off, however the Logitech speakers are completely silent. I used a Kill-a-watt to measure power usage. It uses 1 watt when turned off, 5 watts when on but silent, and between 5 and 26 watts playing relatively bass heavy music at a volume level you would probably consider too loud for a small room (12' x 12'). I consider 5 watts low enough to just always leave it on and not have to worry about turning it off and on with each use. My only complaint would be that the cables for the satellite speakers are not long enough for a large desk. Not a big deal to get an extension for the speaker that uses an RCA jack, but the cable that goes to the speaker with the controls would be a lot harder to find an extension for. It would also help with speaker placement if there was a switch to flip which speakers are left and right. One other annoyance - there was no manual included.

    Great clarity and deep bass. Only wish they were a little less directional. If they are even pointed slightly away from you, you won't have nearly the same clarity as if they were pointed at your ears. Also, the cord for the second satellite speaker (the one without the controls is a weak point. The connector can be fidgety and sometimes cause interruption or no sound at all to play if not plugged in perfectly, as it is succeptible to kinks and premature failure where it plugs in at the subwoofer. Aside from that, another home run for logitech, I previously have owned both of their home/computer 5.1 surround systems and have been very pleased with the brand overall. All my mice are logitech, my keyboard is logitech, it's simply a household brand. It is a minor shame that these inconveniences have plagued these and just about every other logitech system I've owned (the plug failure), but I'll still keep on buying logitech products. Also, despite the lack of independent tweeters, the treble is incredible. A+ (P.S., I highly recommend using a good sound card/high quality integrated sound card to get the best bang for your buck out of these, and set the bass cut-off somewhere around 55hz. You're not gonna get too low with these, but the notes they can pump out are loud and hit hard)

    I bought these Logitech speakers because of the rave reviews I've seen on the internet. I had the Z313 speakers prior to buying these. They are fine speakers, but I've been looking for louder speakers for playing music from the computer. These fit the bill just great! The highs are high, and the lows are super low! The sound is true. You get a lot of bass for the money with the Z623's. I have a higher-end sound card in my computer, coupled with mostly lossless files I play through it. Now comes the negative: It's easy to throw these speakers into distortion! Turning the bass up too much, even halfway at times, results in stressing out the main speakers. I do have my sound card set on the brightest setting at a 24-bit 192k sampling rate. It's as if the speaker doesn't have enough throw, or could benefit from venting the cabinet a little better. The sub is the same way. Turn the bass dial up a little too high, and I start hearing vibration or distortion from the cabinet. I guess that's what separates a sub-$150 set of speakers over an entire stereo system. All in all, the Z623 is worth the money and better than any other speaker set in the price range.

    These are excellent Logitech speakers! I recommend them. There are cheaper speaker sets that may not sound as clear or may not have as rich of bass. There are more expensive sets out there too but, IMO, you would have to be a true audiophile to pay more. They look good and are built very sturdy. There are multiple input options too as mentioned in the web-page description. CONS? not many. Price might be a bit too high for some. The smaller speakers wire directly into the sub-woofer in a proprietary set up. So if for some reason the sub-woofer goes out then the desktop speakers are basically useless. This really shouldn't be an issue but it is a pet peeve of mine. See the attached picture with the connection. Also, no Bluetooth connections.

    Bought these to replace some old Altec Lansing speakers for the family computer. They sound absolutely awesome and make you think they are hooked up to a home theater system. The bass is immense and punchy and the mids and tweeters are really clear and can handle a pretty high volume with out distorting. I went to the store and played with the floor model first. The family started listening to more music on the computer so I wanted something that would be worth its money to upgrade from my current speakers so it was a choice between these and Klipsch. After about 20 minutes of playing with the floor models it was clear the logitech was the better system, and it has not disappointed. This system (besides Klipsch)makes all of the smaller computer speakers available sound like the speaker from a cell phone in comparison. I am a basshead and the subwoofer will rattle the walls, even with the level at halfway . I have a Klipsch home theater system and was surprised how much better the Logitech sounded over the Klipsch computer speakers. These speakers also include an auxillary audio input for like a Bluetooth adapter or other white/red audio inputs from other sources to play audio from. Would definitely recommend. At 400 watts it is the only choice for the anyone that needs computer speakers.

    I used to build hi performance car stereo systems when I was in my 20's, now I'm 47. Tri-Amp systems with 3rd octive EQ's, active cross-overs, subs, the works. I compared this Logitech Z623 to speakers more than twice as expensive and the user reviews for this set was just as good and had 10 times more people reviewing them so I purchased these for $100 versus $200-$400 for others. Out of the box they sounded not so good (as every speaker system does without EQ'ing#. Make sure you have a nice sound card #cheap one# so you can tweak the sound with an EQ as you would with any good stereo system to match your room. They now sound awesome. A symple sound card with an EQ and balance controls is all you need. Creative has some downloads on their website I updated my sound card with for nothing. Don't miss these speaker for the price. You don't need anymore power for sitting in front of your PC. It fills the room and thumps the floor. Vocals are great, Highs are great, and the sub performs as any sub I have ever seen. Wow...Logitech you know your speakers.

    Better than expected

    Posted
    Anonymous

    I bought these because my Klipsch ProMedias developed a white noise in one of the sats after only two months. I needed something to use while I mail them in to be fixed at the very least. These really sound better than I expected. Sound is a little thick at the frequencies covered best by the single drivers in the desktop speakers. Then, frequency respose drops off a bit in the lower mids and extreme highs. This results in a slightly colored sound, but not bad by any means. IMO, they sound a bit richer than the Klipsch at lower volumes, Those aren't perfect either and can sound a tad thin at times. Although, the soundstage tends to be a bit deeper than with the Logitech and the Klipsch can go a smidge louder. I'm very satisfied with these, even after owning the Klipsch. I have serious doubts about the quality of the Klipsch. The first set I brought home was defective and the second set lasted only 2-months and saw no abuse. If these last longer, I'd have to say they're the better choice. We'll see... Oh... I do have to say these desktop speakers are pretty ugly. But, It's the sound that matters most I guess...

    Very good set 2.1 setup for gaming and music

    topreview22

    The Logitech Z623 2.1 speaker setup offers a very good experience overall. The headset and audio input right on the speaker is very convenient and the sound quality is very good excellent. If you are considering a Bose setup, save your money and consider this or the Klipsch product at half price and all of the performance. The one drawback is it is always nice to have plug style connectors going into the speakers instead of fixed wire, but Logitech has done a good job with this particular fixed wire. It is very sturdy and gives the impression that it will last over time. If you are putting this is a fixed spot on your desk, there should be no/very little wear and tear. The subwoofer handles music, movies, and gaming very well and can easily be controlled from the right speaker module. It's very easy to tone it down for music and throtlle it up for thunderous bass in gaming and movies.

    I got this system for my Tv / Blu Ray player at my office. I have a 24 inch Insignia LED 1080P Model: NS-24E400NA14 and Blu Ray player. I use the TV for watching movies. I hooked up the 2.1 speaker system to the blu ray player RCA input and out put. red / white. Had to buy cables. It did come with the head phone / jack cable. But I wanted the truest and best sound so I used the RCA cables. Let me tell you this thing ROCKS!, I have the volume on the speakers at about 1/2 way and the sub woofer at about 3/4 .. OMG you can feel the bass..I watched Olympus has Fallen over the weekend... amazing sound from the speakers. You would have thought I have a 500-1,000dollar home theater system. Not a 107 dollars 2.1 computer speaker system.

    Poor Sound versatility

    Weech0

    For the past 4 months i've been saving up to finally afford these speakers. living paycheck to paycheck i finally had enough money to purchase them. when i get them i immediately hooked them up and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Sadly i was very disappointed my old Logitech X-240's sound better and hit harder than these things. not to mention this burning rubber smell that comes out of the sub even when the sub is turned all the way down. the smell is really noticeable when the sub is turned on at 50+%. When i turn the bass past 50% you can hear the sub woofer hitting the metal grill it comes with. On top of that the sub only hits hard on the lower bass notes. if you listen to rock or metal you'll forget that there's even a sub since it fails to produce bass.Also how are these things "THX" certified? movies sound terrible on these things. THX should be very embarrassed to slap their certification on such a terrible 2.1 system. im gonna return these and exchange them for the klipsch promedias. I really wanted to like these subs it was just impossible. they just don't sound right to me. If you listen to Rap/HipHop and thats all you plan on doing with these speakers than go ahead you won't be disappointed but if you want a versatile speaker system that sounds great with movies, and different kinds of music then these aren't for you.

    Needed new speakers for my laptop that is connected to my led tv. Looked at reviews for this and the klipsh one which was similar in price and decided to go with this due to bigger sub and just overall better looking plus it was on sale. Easy to plug and play and it made my tv sound so weak without it. Movies had more oomph almost like I was at the theaters. Streaming videos and music had more clarity and overall louder. I only set my volume 1/3 and sub 1/3 of the way and it is loud enough for me and my bf. I connect this thru my laptop and I only need to control volume on my computer which most of the time I need to lower it and I don't have to go up to the speakers to do it. Btw we only use this in the bedroom so if you have a larger area like living room then maybe need to set volume/sub higher. Had the old creative 2.1 speakers b4 from way back and this outperforms it in many ways. Great Speakers+Luv it!

    LOGITECH hit a HR w/this set of speakers.I did not give it 5 stars for lack of two more satelitte speakers.The set is the clearest n loudest set of computer speakers I've found.Mine are over three years old now and the crackling noise that will develop is due to dust building up on the volume control and is easily mitigated by spraying electical contact cleaner on the volume control base.Keeping the bass on 6.7 has kept the satelittes from blowing up. I've actually replaced my stereo system as these are loud enough for any 1 bdrm apartment and can hook-up to a tv (keeping the TV speakers on low to avoid blowing them up) for watching movies,video's etc. and its just as good as sound in a theatre.It would be doubly great if they added 2 more staelittes and kept the same wattage in the satelittes (100 per pair).For the $100 I paid in Dec.2012, the price is great.

    I would recommend this to a friend
