Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (38 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "These guys deserve much respect"
Sound: Very detailed, superb sound for such small monitors. I found both highs and lows adequate for the purpose - you are not trying to shake the walls of your house and make your neighbors aware of your new sound system. It is a pair of NEAR FIELD monitors and they do what they are designed to do perfectly. Some users may not fully enjoy these classy speakers because of the inferior analog output of the computer and cheap wires. Also, if you are listening to a low-quality MP3 files with bit rates lower than 192kb or such, you'll hear all the sound compression defects - do not blame your speakers then! Feature: Volume and bass- treble controls come in handy. Value: This 100$ product as well as similar Maudio monitors is way way better then anything that you can buy for your computer in a Circuit City within 400$
Style of Music: Classical, Jazz, Dance, Rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very Nice (With a grain of salt)"
Overall: I am not a professional, nor even a particularly advanced amateur, so I may not be the most reliable witness if you want to know about the accuracy of these monitors. That said, I like them very much. They seem well built. The construction is solid and the knobs are smooth and well dampened. There is a slight hiss, but at a normal distance it is indiscernible unless you have a dead silent room. If this is a serious problem for you, you probably won't find what you need in this price range. I have found the 20W to be plenty of power. They would easily fill a large room.
