There are only a couple small details that prevent me from giving a 5-star review. First, since the subwoofer has a low-end frequency of 31Hz, it doesn't quite the really low bass as nicely as I was hoping. Second, the sound is very directional, in that you have to be sitting pretty much directly in front of the speakers to get the proper balance; otherwise the bass can be a bit overpowering.
Other than those small details, the set is amazing. It's incredibly clean, even at super-loud volumes, but also keeps a good clean balance at lower volumes without losing any quality. The bass is incredibly clean, (never get that 'popping' sound you sometimes hear from overloading some other woofers) it shakes the room, and there's plenty of it to spare; I keep my subwoofer dial at about the 10-11 o'clock position.
TL;DR great, clean, room-filling sound for the cost, highly recommended.
June 9/14 UPDATE - Been using these almost every day since I bought them 3 years ago and they're still fantastic. All the connections are still in perfect condition and there is no noticeable degradation in sound - highs and mids are still crisp and the bass still thumps like mad.
Funny thing is these are now $39 MORE expensive than when I bought them 3 years ago! Honestly though, they were worth it at the $139 that I paid, and are still worth it at $178 they are going for now.
Pros: Excellent sound. I call the sound "realistic" or "rich" when sitting right in front of a desktop computer in a smaller room. It's a proven product with a track record of customer satisfaction spanning a decade. Easy set up.
Cons: Poor quality speaker wire gauge. Subwoofer input connection plug seems quite flimsy, so I'll be careful when moving the unit or when plugging/unplugging. Volume control knobs are very stiff on rotation. No power on/off switch - it's always powered and any amount of power costs money.
Overall: It is what it is, plastic speakers with good quality tweeters/drivers and a less impressive particle board/plastic coated subwoofer. It's the top of the pack in this product segment and performs better than competing products that cost more. If you really appreciate audio sound from your desktop, I think you can achieve better sound by spending about $600 on a mini-amp and some small bookshelf quality speakers, but that's 4 times as much money. I'm pleased with the product as it exceeded my expectations in the context of what I'm using it for
As a Sound Technician I often listen to the very best studio monitors and home systems. The clarity on high end of this Klipsch system rivals the $2000 NHT home theatre system I have in my living room.
The bass is tight, and fairly deep. I would recommend keeping the bass knob set at lower than one quarter and never above half to prevent boomy bass. I am amazed at volume this system can produce.
The bottom line is that for $170 this is an great deal. I would recommend it for anywhere in your home or workplace, besides your main home theatre system. Perfect for your bedroom or home office.
The speakers, subwoofer, cords (everything) are all very high quality and not cheap or flimsy. The framed cloth covers, on the speakers themselves, can come off if you wish to remove them. But I prefer to have them on, since it does not affect the sound and it protects the speakers from getting damaged. The subwoofer volume can be adjusted to be a little louder, quieter or off (on the control speaker). The subwoofer never overwhelms the main volume but always compliments it (even at the subwoofers highest setting). This speaker system has a very high volume range. I only turn the main volume up to about 20 degrees out of the full 240. Not only is this near the limit of what most would feel comfortable listening to but you can feel the subwoofer as well (if you turn up the subwoofer to its recommended setting) which is about 45 degrees out of 240. It comes with more than enough rubber feet to stick to the bottom of your speakers and subwoofer to prevent scratching the floor and desk. The cords are set in length, but are more than long enough to set up for a computer desk. I ordered these six days ago and they just arrived today. And I am pleased to say they are not going back. I would not hesitate buying them again or recommending to a friend. Another product that truly brings this speaker system to shine at its full potential is a program called "SRS HD Audio Lab" from [...] for only $30. The software digitally restores all sound that is coming from your computer in real time, so whether you are watching movies, listening to music or playing video games, you will get the optimal sound quality for your computer system.Read more ›

Love the sound and even though there can be a bit of a touchiness to the volume as you first start moving it, not enough of an issue to subtract a star.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
The sound is crisp clear and smooth. The sub woofer exceeds expectations and if you put it on a wood floor you can feel the base. :)Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
