    This product absolutely rocks with sound

    • Written by from Calgary

    Aside from the fact the we have a very modern decor in our home made me buy these speakers but I must say they are out performing the other speakers in the house. We have them set up using the Airplay so we can put them anywhere. If I could rate these higher I would.

    Highly recommended.

    PS. These silly things glow in the dark and are a real conversation piece.

    Not impressed...

    • Written by from Niagara Falls

    Alright, for a while these speakers were great, until about a year later when they recently just lost a lot of sound. For the price, never buying them again.

    Very Happy

    • Written by from Spokane

    I received these speakers for Christmas and I have to say I'm very impressed. The sound is awesome and can get as loud as you want.

    The only complaint I have is that the power is located on the Subwoofer, which is designed to go under a desk. It can be inconvenient at times, but it is a small price to pay for the sound you get in return.

    Unarguably THE best 2.1 sound solution for your Mac

    • Written by from Surrey

    I use H/K Soundsticks II and I would never trade them for anything else! At the beggining, despite all the reviews I have read - I was so sceptically tuned - how in Earth is possible, this set, built entirely of transperent plastic to sound as good as made of wood speakers?! Well, somehow they do! At least for me - they sound fantastic! Of course not better , but at least on par with my audiophile HI-Fi Pioneer stereo system, where sound is amplified thru a true MOSFET amplifiers and is delivered from 3-way speakers+subwoofer! Well, the Hi-Fi cost me 5 times the Soundsticks, you definitely can not place it on your desktop and despite of it good aesthetics can not compare with the "insanely beautiful" look of Soundsticks! So, if you can afford it - do not think about anything else! Go and buy one! And you won't be sorry!

    **AWESOME**

    • Written by from Grand Rapids

    My kids (18, 20 & 24) recommended I purchase these for my mini mac as I just moved into an apartment. The sound is just wonderful and I am comparing that to my Bose sound dock. They not only sound GREAT but look good too and I can direct the sound by moving the sticks. This is the deal of the year!! Thank you Apple & Harman Kardon.

    These speakers are amazing!

    • Written by from Thompson

    These speakers throw out such a perfect, crisp, clear, and LOUD sound, that I think they are unbelievable! Easy to set-up, beautiful to look at, and well worth the price. Awesome!

    10 Years Strong

    • Written by from KANSAS CITY

    As I continuously procure computer gear that interacts with my Mac systems I'm often left disappointed with the lifespan, let alone I find when I purchase something 24 months later it's outdated or has fallen to 25% of it's value at best.

    I was utterly surprised to find 2 years after I purchased the SoundSticks that they were still selling strong for the same price. Unparalleled in the industry for sure. I find it remarkable that 10 years later these are still on the market! I have B&O throughout our entire workspace and in my office, I still rock these speaks out on my desktop.

    I challenge anyone to say that they've had computer speakers for 10 years and for them to even be on the market to date, let alone, still selling at 80% of value. WOW!

    buzz?

    • Written by from Richmond

    The sound is excellent. Really can't complain for a pair of computer speakers + subwoofer. However, i noticed a buzz when cranked to high volume while plugged into the computer. Seems like plugging it into the headphone jack instead of the speaker output fixes the problem. Oh and no buzz at all when plugged into iPhone either.

    product does not work

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    had problems getting the left satellite speaker to work - since day 1.

    harman kardon sent me a replacement left speaker. same problem.

    finally had to pay ($40) to ship the entire unit back to HK.

    they sent me a whole new set.

    and guess what? left speaker doesnt work.

    Total rip off. Waste of money. This product DOES NOT WORK.

    Amazing. Well Worth the $

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I have been using these for a couple of weeks now and these are well worth the price. First day I received them, hooked them up to iMac, and turned the bass all of the way up, and man, do they hit hard. I primarily listen to hip-hop and these speakers are perfect. The power button is kind of a pain to get to, but other than that, these are amazing. They even look as amazing as they sound!

    A little disappointed...

    • Written by from Chesapeake

    I got these as a Christmas gift. I was very happy to get them. They were highly rated, great reviews, and thought they looked amazing. Tried them out and they played out of one speaker. Took them back and the apple store said "usually shipping will cause that", so reluctantly I traded them for another pair...not the same issue but they didn't have a good sound. Tried plenty of different songs and they all had the same static to them. I really wanted these so bad but unfortunately I'm not willing to try again...

    AMAZING!

    • Written by from Peacehaven

    just plugged them in, took about 2 minutes from opening the box. So easy to set up, the sound is pure! they look really futuristic due the transparent material. They fit the surrounding area with the mac really well, it all works together simply. Top class product, would defiantly recommend!

    Epic Speakers!

    • Written by from Westfield

    These speakers rock, that is all there is to say. For the price they are truly amazing; speakers with similar quality can be found for around $1,000. On top of the amazing sound quality, it the design! Harman and Kardon always has excellent design challenging the ugly black box norm.

    These speakers jam '80s music to classical. You can tell these speakers are made to jam, because the rap music of today is simply too simple. Apparently Harmon and Kardon speakers are try hard speakers! Ha. The only music type these speakers are not so great at is metal music. They do okay with Woe Is Me, but Down With The Sickness sounds "meh". Overall I love these speakers. The Germans have done well once again, not to mention these speakers are very similar to the concert sound system in the average Mercedes.

    Awesome Speakers!

    • Written by from Union City

    I'm not use to rating anything. In-fact this is the second time I ever rated a product. The first time was about my 60" TV, and the second time is these speakers. I mean, these speakers sound awesome. And take this from a music fanatic. One more thought I want to leave you with. I have gotten two complaints in hotels (Holiday Inn and Express and a Comfort Inn and Suites) about the noise coming from these bad boys. Trust me, they're all you need!!!

    A MUST BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Written by from Manhasset

    I have gone through many speakers and some even over $500, but out of all these are the best. It doesn't matter that something is more expensive to be better because these are at an amazing price for the best household speakers ever. I wish i could give this product a 100 stars, thats how great they are!

    Great sound, great design

    • Written by from Dallas

    These speakers can fill our 1400 sq ft loft with ease. The sound is clear and good at low and high volume, and the sub really puts down a great foundation. The design is also sleek and much more attractive than your standard black-box speakers.

    Great Speakers

    • Written by from San Pedro

    These are excellent speakers. I am still using SoundSticks II on my 27" iMac and sound just great using iTunes, Djay or any audio app. Going to buy version III for my Macbook. I highly recommend these speakers. For the price you cannot lose.
