"Below average 2.1 speakers, at such elevated price."1.5 starson by mic19x
Pros: Great looking speakers and adds beauty to desktop station.
Flat band response, all frequencies are amplified and clear.
Controller has AUX which is handy for iPod.
No hissing sound at all.
Cons: 1. No punch in the bass, don't know where 200W goes.
2. If iPod Touch (2nd gen.) is used, even with max volume in both speakers and ipod, volume high is not satisfactory. Feels some preamp. is missing.
3. wires are too short.
4. Controller has 7 LEDs for
Summary: Disappointing low frequency <20Hz response and no punch in bass.
Not worth spending for such speakers in this price. 200W is more devoted to tweeters and mid freq. speakers rather than Woofers. Too sonorous at high volumes and not soothing (read noise).
I connected my iPod and slowly increased the volume to MAX to get a reasonable listening volume along with wrong/nonlinear volume control made me feel its a faulty speaker but I saw same with other 3 speaker in store.
Increasing the base from music player control give a really bad taste of clipped/saturated bass.
I feel this site provides more apt review for this product -

Average 2.1 speakers at elevated price under the umbrella of brand name. Not worth owning one.
