Logitech Z200 Multimedia Speakers/PC Speakers – Midnight – Good for the price

If you want improved sound over your computers internal speakers then these are a very good upgrade. Obviously computers internal sound cards are not very good so if you use these with a dedicated sound card or external audio dac and use these speakers with them, then they are even better. I have these plugged into a focusrite scarlett solo and for the price and build quality they sound very clear and though lacking in bass and presence, the mid range is detailed and the high end is fairly bright but obviously not for the price the brightest or the detailed.

Delivery was great, item arrived four days after ordering. My previous speakers were pretty good, they did lack bass though, but i felt that i should invest in a new set to improve audio quality as well as the overall appearance of my desk. I had looked at these around christmas time last year but never bought them. A few days ago, a friend of mine recommended them to me so that was all i needed to convince me. I went straight to amazon and ordered them that same day. Fast forward to today (sunday, june 10th) and i’m extremely happy with my purchase. Sound quality is noticeably better than my old speakers and the bass is much more noticeable, not too overpowering but there’s also a ‘tone’ dial to reduce or increase the amount of bass, something i haven’t needed as the preset was perfect. I really like the appearance of these speakers, it’s very minimal and fits well in a black and white themed setup. I bought the black variant but the white speakers looked good too. The white rings are a nice touch and look very sleek.

These will be my first venture into speakers. I’m quite pleased to know that this is the lower end, and that it’s not as bad as i was expecting. Coming from using headphones exclusively, these are quite a change. First of all, they are capable of reproducing most of the spectrum my headphones did. However, this usually requires ‘loudness equalisation’, as sometimes the highs can get drowned a little by the lows. I use this setting when listening to podcasts, commentaries etc, just not for music or gaming. When gaming, there is a way bigger sense of direction than any headphones gave. It’s like i’m hearing stereo for the first time.A much preferred experience. Here are the specifications for the Logitech Z200 Multimedia Speakers/PC Speakers – Midnight:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • High audio quality: Multimedia/PC speakers deliver 10 W of peak power for rich, clear stereo and stunning acoustics that fill the room with sound
  • Easy-to access controls: Front panel has integrated volume and power controls with headphone plug-in and auxiliary input for easy and convenient sound management
  • Customised bass control: Rotate the tone control wheel at the side of the multimedia speakers for added deep bass
  • Effortless connectivity: Features 3.5 mm audio input and 3.5 mm auxiliary line input for easy and versatile connectivity

Positives: (1) small power pack which is nice. (2) pretty loud for their size. Negatives: (1) bigger than i expected, look a bit daft on my smallish desk. (2) more plasticy than the picture lets on. (3) sound quality isn’t great, the tone control barely makes any difference to the sound. I’ll rate these ‘it’s okay’, they aren’t truly awful but don’t have much that’s great. Meh, is the word that sums them up best. Films sound okay and music sounds muffled and dull. For £27 i was expecting better to be honest.

Can’t even remember when i got these, only writing a review now since i’m looking to upgrade, but i’ve had them for a solid two or so years — still in perfect condition- look the part- useful for general audio use, anything from films to games, to any genre f music. Except perhaps heavy bass edm etc. As the bass isn’t really felt, even if the lower tones are good.

  • These speakers are pretty good for the price

If you are setting up your own heavy metal festival and are looking for some speakers for the main stage i would recommend getting two or three sets of these. Four if metallica is your headliners. In all honesty, there is nothing much to say. The cable between the two speakers is a decent length. So even if you have a multi-monitor display, like me, you won’t be precariously balancing them at off angles and hoping that you don’t headbang too hard to slipknot causing one of the speakers to fall in to your tea and start smoking more than a hipster with a vaporiser. . Not that that has ever happened to me.

I’ve had these for roughly a year now, having paid £23 for them in july 2017. I mainly use them as speakers for my pc, but have also used them for bbqs and parties. The good:- the sound is ok for the price, very clear, good enough for gaming and casual music use. I would have liked a bit more bass as the sound is slightly on the thin side when at low volumes. Once you turn the volume up you get a bit of a boost in bass, but for me it’s still not enough. – having said that, the volume can get pretty loud considering the size of the speakers. Which is a positive when using outside for bbqs and parties. – the headphone jack is a nice added feature for when i want to use headphones that are on the shorter side and won’t reach to the the mic jack on my pc. The bad:- there is a tone button on the side and for me, adjusting this doesn’t really make an impact either way, so is pretty useless. – i have started to encounter a few a problems in the way of the speakers not turning on at all.

You’ll need headphones just to protect your ears from sound damage a++out of the box these just connect with one jack into the back on the pc, connect the seperate plug and connect the power cable to the right hand speaker, positon the two connected speakers left and right of your screen and your’e ready to rock n roll. . Get on you tube, search for ‘who let the dogs out’ and test those bad boys. You can also easily connect a set of ear phones into the left hole of the righthand speaker and as if by magic they work and stop using the speakers, fine if you are not using a gaming headset where you want to chat on the mic. For under £30 you just can’t go wrong.

These speakers are pretty good for the price, they have very nice sound quality and look very good on the desk. They have a good amount of bass with a little adjustable slider on the side to control the bass levels. The only problem i have is with the wire that plugs into the tv, its not the best as when it is turned a certain way the speakers start to do a loud humming noise, this is fixed by simply rotating the cable. Other than this issue the speakers are pretty good. ~update~ever since moving the cable after hearing the humming noise i haven’t had it since so the speakers are functioning really well. I have played a few games with them and i can say the sound is amazing for the cost of these speakers.

One thought on “Logitech Z200 Multimedia Speakers/PC Speakers – Midnight – Good for the price

  1. Those speakers are fairly inexpensive and have good quality sound. For some reason, mine stopped working after a week however – they could still turn on, but there would be no sound no matter the source. Somehow, the out did work, and i could plug a headset to the speakers and hear sound. Only the speakers themselves stopped working. Not sure how that happened, but it was a very frustrating experience.

    • I know i shouldn’t expect much from speakers this cheap, but there’s a horrible, hollow quality to the sound. Also, the speakers are weirdly large.
