    Great Speakers

    • Written by from Kuna

    These speakers are incredible. The sound quaility is amazing. Even with the volume turned all the way up the sound is still crisp and clear with no distortion on the sub. With the speakers turned all the way up, only 1 notch on the macs volume control is plenty audible, its louder than the built in mac mini speakers turned all the way up. And not only do they sound great they look great to :). I would recomend these speakers to anyone. They also came with an adapter to plug in red and white cables so if you wanted to you could hook up a TV or even a record player to these.

    I was introduced to these speakers by a friend a couple of years ago. I received them as a Christmas present. I plugged them into my MacBook and watched a movie and was blown away by the sound. I've since plugged them into my tv and my iPod and have enjoyed the AMAZING SOUND!! These speakers are well worth the price!! Go out and get them!!!

    Best Speakers

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I bought these speakers a couple weeks ago at my local apple store. From the very moment I plugged these in I knew there was no chance that I would be returning them. The sound quality is incredible; no matter how much you crank up the bass or turn up the volume there is absolutely no distortion to the sound. The most impressive thing about these speakers is there is no white noise at all wether I play music from my macbook pro or phone. These speakers sound way better than the amount you pay for them and not to mention they look sick!

    Expected the quality of these speakers for a larger price. They are awesome and handle bass and all the sound very well. I am very satisfied and would not buy another set from anyone else except for Harman/Kardon!

    Simple. I own 2 pairs of these speakers and they both have worked perfectly for over 4 years. They do full range and have comparable loudness to a large system.

    Great speakers, just not for me.

    • Written by

    I am sure many people are going to disagree with me here on what I am about to say. First off, the sound quality of these speakers is incredible, the clarity is amazing. You can turn them up LOUD and they don't have distortion issues as so many other speakers.

    But here's the deal: I have a big corner desk, and although I have room for these speakers, I have learned that I prefer a 2.0 system versus a 2.1 system. As I sat at the desk listening to these, although I did hear the Subwoofer and it blended great with the satellites, the sound I primarily heard was the high's from the 2 Satellites. I also own a pair of Creative Labs Gigaworks T 20 Series 2 - which I bought a few months ago, and although I can't crank up the volume of the GW's as high as the SS III, and the bass output is not as strong, again, I just like the mix of sound I get from a 2.0 system, versus a 2.1 with a sub.

    I am sure many people think I am crazy, but, these Soundsticks are going back to the store today, and I think I am going to check out some stronger 2.0's, such as the M Audio AV 40's. I will give the Soundsticks 4 out of 5 stars, and can't rate them 5 just because of my 2.0 preference, and I definitely would recommend these, they are just not for me. And 1 other thing, thankfully with the Soundsticks 3, Harman Kardon changed the color of the satellite base stands from that weird light gray to black, because that gray color looked like dried-up spackling compound to me.

    These Speakers are the definition of quality!

    • Written by from fairfax station

    These speakers look way better in real life and the quality is so good that I don't know of anything better that is so small! These speakers and subwoofer also can crank up so loud- most won't need it that loud because they are desktop speakers but it is cool to turn it up and here the bass! I highly recommend these speakers to anyone. I was doubtful about them from looking at how apple shows it but they are amazing in real life and also have a modern cool look that has limited wires- but also can stretch to place around your room if needed!

    I love these speakers. I don't know where to start. Ok, to start out they are a piece of art and everyone who see's them comments on how cool they look. Not only do they look good, but they sound even better. You could pay 10x the price of these and still get speakers of lesser quality. Just.... WOW... They are so crisp and great sound low or high. I love my harman Kardon Soundsticks lll !

    Nothing compares

    • Written by from Piedmont

    Don't let anyone tell you otherwise... NOTHING compares to these speakers. For the money, you will learn to live with the fact that the sub looks like a giant jellyfish. Even the larger, more expensive HK speakers are only a slight step up from their much cheaper cousins. Best in class- absolutely.

    The sound blows me away for the size. It sounds better than stereos I spent thousands on in the past.

    Better than you can imagine

    • Written by from Fayetteville

    These are the best speakers I have ever used. 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.
