Ill keep this short and sweet. I've had mine for four years and it has done every duty in the book that a set of speakers can do. Its been moved back and forth from dorm to dorm, apartment to apartment - all the while ensuring Im kicked out as soon as I arrive. These things rock!
The small speakers do tend to be outclassed by the bass driver. They get loud, but the dont project...” --mattphones
I just got these and am impressed with the detail and clarity of these speakers. I only wanted something simple, small, and cheap. I was looking at the swans but don't have the opportunity to listen to them here in hawaii. We are pretty limited to whats available here and on Oahu is where they'd most likely have more options for me to listen to. But back to the review. I am currently...” --Hawaiiancerveza
I've had the Swan M10 for a few months and I was compelled to write this review.
These have to be the best speakers in the price range that I've ever listened to, nothing else can be compared end of story.
My older pair of bookshelf speakers sounded laughable in comparison, funny part is I paid nearly double the price for those!
These speakers have very tight mids, tight highs and overall...” --OmarSy
“I have had these speakers for almost 6 years now. Downgraded from my old Logitech Z680. The sub of the Logitech Z-680 had a buzzing sound within a few months of use that forced me to set the bass volume to less than 10% (although it was sufficient enough for decent bass). Until now the X-540s have not shown any signs of aging or sound deterioration. This considering that the speakers have been...” --b3roldan
“Outstanding pair of computer speakers. The mid-bass punchiness is much better than I imagined. However, the two main speakers are not capable of handling deep bass-- this is where the sub-woofer would come in handy -- it'd perfect this speaker set by compensating for its only weakness - deep punchy bass. The speakers look very good.......well designed.
Tried Aktimate...” --Skwalker
This was my very first set of non-crap quality speakers. I have to tell you, i was very pleased with the sound of these, and they still amaze me at times. They are a good sounding pair of speakers for 100-130 dollars. Perfect for movies, music, and even gaming. The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of bass under 50hz, but from 50hz up the bass was again, great quality for the...” --Xaborus
“Build quality is good:
Woofer dust cap and tweeter both pop back out if you push them in, so it is relatively 'child proof'.
Sound, especially treble and mids are satisfying but the bass can be boomy with bad tonal accuracy if placed on the wrong surface like a wooden desk etc which simply becomes an acoustic extension of these.
So you either need lots of space for speaker stands, a...” --GREQ
I use these with my Audioengine D1 DAC (which is an excellent value DAC btw) and they really sing. The speakers have beautiful mids and highs for the size and price and although the bass is a bit lacking, it is of high quality. You can pair them with a sub if you want down the road.
The build quality is brilliant. They feel really solid and well made. Audioengine are a great...” --dalb
I paid 15 bucks for these in a sale, regular price is somewhere around 30 - 40 dollars. I needed a simple pair of speakers for a computer, so I had really no expectations. I figured these would outperform s simple 2.0 that was priced the same even worse.
Now i seriously underestimated the sound coming out as it turns out this is quite a capable system. Sound is pretty detailed,...” --DomProfesor
“Picked up these speakers today,overall I'm satisfied with my purchase. There not the most visually appealing speakers but love the 2 way mid tweeter. If you love bass! The huge sub woofer could be just what you looking for or it could be your worst nightmare as it is just that "HUGE!" Overall they sound pretty good my only complaint would be a lack of mid bass kinda leaves them...” --Honkytime
