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.

    Purchased the SoundSticks III a couple weeks ago. Former speakers were Logitech. A highly rated model with nice mid-range sound wi Purchased the SoundSticks III a couple weeks ago. Former speakers were Logitech. A highly rated model with nice mid-range sound with good base, albeit somewhat muddy. Good for 50's rock but not so much for Jazz, which is my preferred genre. I also enjoy Classical, i.e. 1812 Overture, Grand Canon Suite and William Tell Overture, etc. Love Beethoven. When I first hooked these up my immediate reaction leaned toward not enough base and the highs were, well, too high. However, tilting and pointing the Sticks outward took away the any harshness and filled my computer room with extraordinary sound. I am hearing instruments more upfront than I had with prior speakers, The base is perfect for Jazz with that tight beefy pluck of a base string! No more muddy lingering boom. Depending on the song, you will still get that full bass sound but its clean and specific. I only have the sub turned up to to about 3/4. A real pleasure to listen too. IMHO, I believe these speakers must be broken in as each time I listen, they sound better. I cannot get these speakers to distort at the almost highest level on my iMac. Sticks volume is set to 100%. Great looking too and the LED light is not annoying to me as some have critiqued. Get these!!!

With a a/v selector was able to hookup both the iMac and PC at my desk to them. Amazed at how great they sound. The sound sticks have great weight to them and won't easily be knocked around. I highly recommend them to anyone.

    I purchased the first Soundsticks 10+ years ago (they served me well) and just received the 2.1 Channel system - love the flexibil I purchased the first Soundsticks 10+ years ago (they served me well) and just received the 2.1 Channel system - love the flexibility of being able to attach them to my mobil devices or laptop. The thing that thrilled me most is that I truly believe they are better, stronger more powerful than the first series which I guess is only natural - newer, better. The sound is almost too big (turn the volume down!)

    I thought I would miss the convenience of the old USB version (you could control volume via your computer) and the "volume controls on the speaker" concept worried me when I read about them. What they don't tell you is that you barely touch the +/- to adjust volume.
    Terrific System.
