They have an adjustable subwoofer, and you can go from zero bass to "feeling your insides vibrate" bass. There is no distortion when maxed out on volume in all areas, actually they seem to get clearer (always crisp, never "tin can" sounding) the louder you crank them. I have tried at least a dozen "headset/ computer" speakers, some that were more than triple the price and some that were comparable. They do not look great in pictures, almost cheap, but in person, they are stunning and solid. The unique design is very minimal modern. I move them around my house with my airport express, and people ask me what they are (they have no idea they are speakers unless they are on) They are so versatile, I will plug them into my ipod, iphone, itouch, the computer, the airport express, anything with a headset jack, and I have an incredible stand alone stereo system. If you can't tell, I love them. Just try them, if they don't shock you and win you over, you can always return them, but I highly doubt that will happen.

They have a great sound & simple to hook up, and for the money you can't beat them. they have great highs & good bass, sound great with audio or as movie cinema. I would recommend them highly for the money.

    Now we all know the exchange rate and about what it costs to ship to NZ etc so why are these things not about NZ$220-NZ$240. In the US at US$170 they are good value, here far less so, even though they do sound (and look) absolutely wonderful.

    I have the very first version of these speakers which I have had for over 10 years now and they have been amazing since day one. I I have the very first version of these speakers which I have had for over 10 years now and they have been amazing since day one. I work from home and have these hooked up to my iMac. I play music on them 40 hours a week. The sound is great for both music and movies and the bass response is crazy. Normally I keep it on the very lowest setting. If these things don't last me another 10 years I will be surprised. Great looks, great sound and super reliable. This purchase is a no brainer.

  • Great speaker with bluetooth now!

    4.0 out of 5 stars

    Pro:
    1) Great sound with clear vocals and highs.
    2) Blue tooth function makes connecting music even easier without the wires. T Pro:
    1) Great sound with clear vocals and highs.
    2) Blue tooth function makes connecting music even easier without the wires. The unit was placed in the living room where folks can just connect it with their phones bluetooth at a convenience spot.
    3) The look of this speaker will make your place stand out artistically. Its very pleasing to view and comes with such a style!


    Cons
    1)The highs are more define and spread compare to my existing Logitech Z623.. Although the Z623 will win on the mids and stronger bass. But if you like light musics like classic, jazz or even pop, this baby is for you.
    2.) Control of bass can be better placed on speaker sides instead on the woofer.
