Excellent

ProAwesome quality

ConsYou ought to be kidding

When I first saw these speakers in the market, i liked them. The transparent tube and satellite speakers look just great. But I dare not even think of buying them - £140 is a bit too much for me to spend on speakers. I had borrowed the creative 6.1 6700 from a friend who would be away for a month...

ConsSimply none!

My Harmon Kardon Soundsticks are plugged into the back of a Mac and have certainly livened things up. I haven't needed to upgrade soundcards or do anything technical whatsoever in my pursuit of fantastically rich sound quality. Firstly, these sound better than anything else on the market within...

Proexcellent design, great sound & bass

Consa lil bit pricey

I got this speakers couple of years ago whenever I bought myself an iMac. I told myself that I needed a new fancy speaker to go with my new fancy iMac. While I was browsing through Apple store, i stumbled upon this great amazing looking speaker and thought that this was it for my iMac. First...

ProGreat sound and look superb

ConsI wish i could show them off more!

---Brief--- I bought these speakers to replace an old aiwa 2.1 system for my computer. The speakers looked the part and i wanted to buy something that could equal the sound of my hifi system. The reason for this being that i now store the majority of my music on my computer and rarely use my hifi...

ProFantastic sound quality

ConsShort lead from sub to pc

I woke up this morning and put my computer on. As usual the first thing I do on a Saturday morning is put some music on....... BOOM.. No more speakers. So clearly forced to go out and buy some new ones I came across a little problem. What speakers do I buy? Do I buy standalone speakers as I...

“Transparent and Loud!”

ProLOUD maximum volume, cool looks

ConsBulky subwoofer

One of the coolest speakers i saw come out were the Kardon Soundsticks II multimedia speaker system. I didnt actually see them online or anything like that, the speakers are actually somewhat endorsed by apple, as I first saw them hooked up to almost all of the ipod's and apple mac's on display...

ProBeautiful, cool, perfectly formed speakers

Consmoths fly into the subwoofer and die

I saw these, slightly phallic speakers in a shop a LONG time ago, and loved them to pieces immediately. But there was no way I could spend that much (nearly £200) at the time, on speakers for my PC. Anway, I invested in a high quality soundcard some time ago, as I was doing a lot of work with...

ConsQuite bulky but otherwise perfect

These speakers are one of the best pieces of equipment I have purchased in years. I was looking for some speakers to play my ipod through and also my laptop. I considered one of the compact ones that fitted an ipod mini, but i have since bought and ipod nano and this would not have fitted. The...

Prosleek, sexy, head turner

Conscan't see any to be entirly honest

These speakers are a sleek, stylish and classy addition to any personal computer. I bought these speakers from PC world instinctively. I saw the clear and transparent style on the box and immediately knew that I had to have these speakers. I havent regretted this rash decision at all. Thye sound...

Crystal clear sound quality and top class looks to go with it! what more can you ask for in a destop pc speaker set up. Certainly worth paying the extra over similar products such as the JBL Creature II speakers.

ProDistinctive, crystal clear sound

ConsStruggles to fill a room with sound

The only place to start with these speakers is with their appearance! As I've said in the title, they remind me of a jellyfish being dumped on my desk and just about anyone who has seen them has asked what they are!. Being transparent instantly makes them different from pretty much anything else...

ProSound & Looks

ConsNo off switch

I bought these speakers 1 year ago after testing them against others in my local apple store. I found that they were as good if not better than the Bose sound dock which is twice the price and only works with an iPod. I have read reviews saying that they are badly made but I have had no problems...
