Pros: Price, surprisingly good sound, adequate bass at medium and low volume, wired volume remote
Cons: A lot of cables, performance still limited
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, bass has some punch, given the small size of the sub so there is a lot of value.
Design is nothing fancy, but they look much better than those cheap 2.0 systems.
The wired remote is a bit light weight but still a nice feature. Mids and highs are pretty good from the sattelites only the bass starts to suffer when you turn the volume up. So if you are thinking you can host a party with these, forget about it. But if you have a small room, a budget of up to 30 dollars (I would gladly pay 30 for them if I had to buy them again) and want some decent audio - music, movies and games, this is the best choice ... by far.
