well , i've only had these for about an hour so this isnt a long term test, but sound = incredible. speakers relative to sub can come across abit lacking in oomph , however the bass is truely awesome, and this power : bass ratio can simply be sorted by twisting the bass dial!!! would reccomend these for sure. havent even turned them above half volume and ive had a noise complaint from the rents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BASS BASS BASS =D
These speakers are ideal if you love bass. I purchased these to replace a set of 2.1 Hercules speakers that were half the price. I am only giving these speakers 4 stars as even although the build quality is excellent, the sound produced by these speakers seriously do not justify the hefty price tag. My old Hercules speakers sounded good, and I was expecting the upgrade to these to make a significant difference to my listening experience, but for the price the difference is not that noticable, considering my Hercules speakers were only 30 pound and these are nearer 70. Having said that the speakers do sound good and are nice and clear, the bass is very crisp, my bedroom is very small and I dare not turn the bass up more than a quarter of the way round. If you are looking for a good set of speakers that will last you years then by all means go for these, but if you are on a budget then I would seriously consider a cheaper alternative. I do not regret buying these, but I wish I had took into consideration cheaper 2.1 sets. One of the best features of these speakers is the handy bass knob on the right speaker, with my old set I had to fumble round the back of my sub woofer in order to adjust the levels.
