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. …

10 years later and still going strong!
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. …

Naturally, when I went to colleg My parents had an earlier version of these speakers when I was a kid, and I was always impressed. Naturally, when I went to college, I had to get my hands on my own set, and they do not disappoint. The construction is very solid, they look fantastic, sound fantastic for virtually any genre of music, and, when compared to speakers of the same echelon, very affordable. Don't underestimate the amount of sound they output either. When I play modern music on high volume, it can even be heard all the way down the dorm stairs and on other floors. The only things I would possibly change are as follows: The black Soundstick bases attract dust, so change the material, and add more LED's! The one white one in the base looks neat when the lights are dimmed, but if there were some in the Sticks and more in the base that changed colors, it would be a huge aesthetic improvement (to already beautiful speakers). Overall a great buy! …

Note that these speakers need to have their own power plug, independent of the iMac/Macbook/TV. Because of this, they have a lot of power; much more than line-powered speakers.
The volumes of the bass speaker and of the SoundSticks can be set independently. …
