"These are amazing"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The vocals are excellent and the bass is good. But you need to break them in first that's when they went down to 35hz which is excellent for the price would recommend.

"Great value for money!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

These are a great little pair of speakers. They work perfectly in a near field situation, PC gaming in my case. While they do lack the bottom end of a larger speaker they still produce a satisfying thump. Due to their design they throw all the sound forwards with very little bass passing through the wall behind them.
