Better than you can imagine

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. …

A truly "Sound" investment!
I saw these by chance on the Apple Store. I had been in the market for a sound-bar in the living room, but was hesitant to buy bec I saw these by chance on the Apple Store. I had been in the market for a sound-bar in the living room, but was hesitant to buy because of the overwhelming number of inconsistent reviews on pretty much every make/model I looked at. Then the HK SoundSticks III came into view. Raving reviews overall. I've never been disappointed with Apple or Apple-marketed products, and although this in not Apple made, I know historically of HK's quality and technology. So I bit, picked them up last week.
** WOW ** that's nice. These are incredible and not just for the price. You can add that to the wow factor ... but they really sound great. And they look hilariously cool (that's a good thing), just so space age. I love 'em.
Here's a thing to note about the subwoofer: with any low end, less expensive speakers / systems, the bass is the first thing to suffer. When I initially set the HK's up, the sub sounded kind of "hollow" like so many low end subs that struggle from lack of power. After about 10 minutes I realized that what I was listening to was more the cabinet the sub was sitting on, which on closer inspection was indeed resonating, causing my initial perception of significantly washed out bass. So I untangle the still bundled wiring, move the sub down onto a much heavier (dense) surface near the floor, and cranked it all back up. Yeah ** WOW ** what a difference. Solid bass, well defined, crisp and driving the way we all like it. I am more than satisfied with that.
On to the satellites. The only thing I wish about these is that the integrated cabling was another 6ft longer, but I'm not going to mess with that. They sound great, really deliver and don't break up at high volume. The ring-base you see on the bottom of the sats is surprisingly beefy, coated in thick rubber as well, so when you tilt the stick it absolutely will not fall over. And being able to tilt the sats that way adds super flexibility for placement. …

Great speakers .. great look.. booming bass
So after reading all the reviews I decided to get these. They live up to the expectations. Matter of fact... better. Perhaps becau So after reading all the reviews I decided to get these. They live up to the expectations. Matter of fact... better. Perhaps because I quite love sound and have really good equipment in all other areas I wasn't really expecting what I received.
First let me say "articulate", the sound is very articulate. The bass coming from the sub is way more than I need to hear....actually turned the dial less than have. Additionally I would like to add....the look way better than the pictures. Well the left and right towers. The woofer still looks like a space craft.
My only I wish if something were different is ... The on/off switch is on the sub woofer.
But I digress
To sum up, you will get
A very sleek, expensive looking towers.
Sound that will be most certainly loud enough.
Articulate...articulate.....the sound is articulate....be prepared to be impressed with the clarity of sound.
The bass, is booming....if you need.
Great set up, well worth the money. …
