Good

Prostylish, sleek and on a budget

Consnot high quality sound and not portable

ProVisually unique design, fairly cheap

ConsMediocre sound reproduction with poor range

It takes a little tenacity to criticise these speakers since their fans tend to exhibit an explosively passionate support for them. As always I aim to give as balanced a view as possible here. THE PRETTY The first thing that strikes you about these speakers is undoubtedly their look. It's...

ConsNone that I can see.

Before I bought these speakers about a year ago, I had thoroughly searched the internet for any opinion, review, press release, and editorial on the Creature II and discovered that these were rather exceptional speakers. Yet I was still concerned that this was a product of design over quality...

ConsMaybe a little pricey for a 2.1 system.

INTRODUCTION ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Wow. That's all I can say. I baught these JBL Creature II 2.1 PC Speakers under recommendation from a number of people on a forum via Amazon for £49.88 - a little more than I was expecting to pay. But with...

ConsSome colours are hard to find at a good cost

My partner purchased these JBL Creature II speakers for use in our our bedroom with the intention of using them with our ipod. My first impression were that they were certainly different, but in a good way. We purchased the speakers for £65.00 and the prices have held in most stores with retail...

The JBL Creature II speakers are an awesome Value for Money option for Audiophiles and enthusiasts alike. I think they are one of the best investments that I have made for my digital life.

ProLooks, excellent sound quality

ConsLooks, price may put some off

I purchased these in black, a little over a year ago, in order to connect up to my PC to allow me to play my mp3 collection with ease. So out of the box, I could already see that these were no ordinary speakers, with their somewhat quirky styling appealing to me instantly. However, this leads to...

“Good basic speaker package”

published 14/09/2007

ProLooks cool, basic, no volume problems

ConsBass is poor, not the best quality sound

The speakers look quite cool next to my white laptop, although I do feel the need to tuck the sub under my desk since it is quite big. The two speakers are quite funky looking as you can see, and one of them has two buttons on it. These are the volume control - one for up, one for down. The...

“FUNKY BEATS”

published 27/11/2006

ProSmall and will fit any deskyop

ConsCan't think of any

Bought these speakers from PC world the other day on a whim. By god I am so glad I did. My old speakers were getting a bit tired and were not doing my BF2 game any justice. I saw a huge pile of them stcked in an aisle and was immediatly taken by the unusual design. I may be a little fickle, but...

ConsNone

I wanted a set of stereo speakers with a sub woofer,but found that they were all to big for my desk area as I only have a little space so these were ideal. Setting these up was a piece of cake as all the cables and sockets on the sub woofer (this is where all the cables plug into) are colour...

My girlfriend bought these for her iPod Nano as something to have in the bedroom rather than paying full whack for a full mini hi-fi system. Since neither of us know massive amounts about the technology involved in audio equipment, I think that she just went for the "ones that looked coolest" And...

“JBL creature - model ;)”

published 25/04/2008

ProLook great, sound better

ConsOnly play as low as 50Hz

I have the white pair, and i'll start from where i started at choosing these, they look great don't they? the alloyish trim over the speaker and curvy body really is attractive. The volume is controled by a touch sensitive receptor on the right speaker, which doesn't ever stop working. Aside from...

Conspricey, larger then life personality

This system sits in my room and is connected to my laptop, the tweeters are decieving, look tiny, yet when they get going they are loud and there is little distortion! The bass is impressive and clean, this is shown especially when playing games or movies with explosions! The overall design...

ProLoud, looks cool, thumping bass

Consquite expensive

I got a Sony Network Walkman for Christmas and wanted some speakers to inflict all my favourite albums on the wider public (well, the wider public in my house). A family member told me he had heard these going in a shop and they were amazing. I shopped around a bit first but I didn't see anything...

I'm quite knowledgable about speakers systems, so i bought these after doing a lot of research to make sure i was getting a good product. They are simple to get working and i was initially very happy with the quality of sound they produced. After about 2 hours of playing with my new gadget i...
