I was expecting a decent sound from these things, because creative are kings of sound quality, but however I was aware that they are small (2" cones and 5" for the sub) and only 25Watts so I wasn't expecting the result I was greeted with!
Paired up with my pc's Creative X-Fi Sound card, these speakers sound sublime, The Bass is very apparent and thunders through the floor and desk, the trebble is sharp and accurate and the vocals are crystal.
A few things worth noting are that there is no headphone socket (not a problem if your pc has a front panel output though.) and the other point is that there is volume dial for the subwoofer located at the back of it, which is very useful if you want to lower the bass for night viewing ect.
In conclusion, if you need a set of compact but decent sounding speakers, look no further than these, trust me I've used others from Logitech and Yamaha and niether sounded as good as these even though the yamaha had a 6" sub and 30Watts RMS. Nice one Creative :)
