Fantastic speakers for the price. Decided to buy these after much researching and i couldn’t be happier with my choice. I’ve tested them with jazz, dubstep, breakbeat, downtempo, classical and rock and the sound is superb with all genres. The treble sounds crisp, midtones rounded and the base is deep. As i like bass i turned it up high on a few tunes to test it and my pounding rib cage concurs, it remained excellent. There is no underlying hiss and the sound quality remains excellent even at high volume. Aesthetically they are also pleasing, they do look quite slick compared to many other speakers. If you are looking to spend about £40 on speakers (the sort of price onwards you would be looking at if you like your music) you are unlikely to be disappointed with this hercules offering. The only minus point against them i can find thus far is the power button being on the back of the subwoofer. Climbing under the table to turn them off is a faff.
Speakers arrived promptly,securely packed and intact. I tried them on my tv but they were not to my liking. The wires are too short and it’s a fiddle having the on/off switch on the back of the sub woofer. The sound effect was not what i was looking for so i tried them on my pc. And they seem more suited to that, mostly because i rarely alter the volume when i’m working. Over all, i think they are more suited to the pc. And are just about adequate for my needs.

Amazing sound for a good price. . I am really happy with this purchase. The quality sound is really good for it’s price, enough to connect to my laptop for watch a hd film or listen music really loud. If it helps, my neighbours told me that they like the music i play :d.
