Trust Gaming GXT 658 Tytan 5 – a great amount of bass which can be attenuated if needs

Great for casual gaming and listening to music. Don’t think i could recommend for a home cinema set up or for hardcore gaming. Fairly discreet with only the subwoofer having leds. If you’re looking for something to listen to music with, or just game with casually.

Used it for a 1080p tv and can handle loud play in both high and deep ranges. What lets it down is the remote control which is very small and does not pick up sometimes when using it from a distance. May as well use the controls on the actual subwoofer but they are very scrawny to use too. All be told my mate is a little mithed at how the build was put together – maybe this would only be used in a gaming environment as they are after all gaming speakers.

The speakers sound very good. And the cables are very short. I have a very small room and i was barely able to extend the speakers around my room. And my other problem is that when its in 5. 1 surround is that most of the sound comes out the center speaker and the surround speakers are barely audible. But other than that the bass is fantastic and sound is pretty decent. Here are the specifications for the Trust Gaming GXT 658 Tytan 5:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • PC speakers set including wooden subwoofer with a total of 180 Watt power output
  • Computer speakers with base-synced LED Subwoofer
  • High quality surround sound with deep bass
  • Wireless remote to control volume, bass & input selection
  • Compatible with PC, Wii*, Sony PlayStation 3* and Xbox 360* (*5.1 surround sound only available on PC with 5.1 surround compatible – 3x 3.5mm outputs – connection)

These speakers are fantastic, they’re not overly loud but have a great underlying bass note to them they also come with a handy little adaptor and volume control knob which is handy and looks nice just sitting on the desk. The build quality is solid and i don’t see these going faulty any time soon the sound is crisp and clear even at max volume which is a plus.

I was skeptic before getting 2. 1 speakers as got used to have 5. However, i got nicely surprised when sound was smashingly awesome.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Optical input for me!
  • good value gaming speakers
  • Remote broke after 6 months but speakers sound great

Turned up on time and easy to understand instructions. The only gripe is that on the small hand controller you need a pair of binoculars to read the writing on it.

Wow, what a soundi purchased those as i needed an optical connection for the ps4. I do not have a big house so i did not want a big surround sound system with hundreds of speakers. The sound that came out of those speakers took me by surprise. Very well defined, a great amount of bass which can be attenuated if needs be (i have to set the subwoofer to minimum as it is a beast). I can plug it simultaneously to the tv. The cables fit on the side of the main subwoofer speaker which is really handy for access. I am writing this review to help people who have never used optical cables before. I had never used those before and it took me to google ‘how to insert an optic cable’ to be able to do something quite simple (i am quite embarassed about it) but here goes: there is a small translucid plastic cap that needs to be removed at the extremity of the cable and then only, your cable will lock in and fit.

The remote stopped working after 6 months and i have been unable to find a way of purchasing a replacement, despite contacting the manufacturer. Therefore i am limited to the few controls that are on the side of the subwoofer. However, despite this, the speakers still sound great. I have them wired into my pc via the optical port and they work perfectly.

This speaker works perfectly, looks very nice with the led light, buut, the led light only works when bass is put on max and volume is high too, which is quite disappointing. Also the plug to my computer stopped working, had to buy an adaptor, but could be that the problem was with computer itself as it was working when connected to phone.

Have them hooked up to my tv which is channelling audio from my pc via hdmi. Can get very very loud without distorting. Can definitely wake the neighbours. The remote that comes with it is a bit iffy, the speakers doesn’t always pick up the signal so you end up pressing the volume button multiple times to change the volume once. A tad hit and miss otherwise loving it.

I have now owned these speakers for almost 2 years and they have served me we. I use them for my pc set up however they can be used simply by aux cable with any device. They provide reasonable sound quality which particularly shines when watching films. For the price these are a great set of speakers. The sub woofer can be very powerful but can be adjusted with a second volume control. I have noticed a slight crackle from time to time but this doesn’t bother me and is hard to notice.

Bought this for my man cave mainly use it for watching tv. Films and football sound absolutely brilliant. There’s no issues with sound at all the volume goes very high indeed. I even use it to listen to music from my pc too which to me has perfect crystal clear sound. My only dislike is the rear speaker cables could do to be a little longer but i’ve fixed that by buying extension cable from amazon. Overall very happy would highly recommend this product.

Really good product, i was gonna spend £130 on some speakers and decided it was too much, so i bought these, thinking they wouldn’t be as good as the more expensive ones, turns out they are really good. Impressive bass, good size sub, satellite speakers look good and produce a good quality mid to high range sound, the controller is very smooth and feels like good quality, i’ve not stopped listening to music since i got them 😆👍, sfx on the movies and games are bought to life with them too.

Received these and one speaker was faulty. Misleading also as without a 5. 1 sound card you only get stereo sound. Sent it back as it was faulty and bought a £75 hitachi sound bar which is awesome.

I was seriously considering getting a more expensive set, after having subsequent 5. 1 speakers require alignment and do nothing for regular music with 2 channels, i leapt at these and have no regrets.

Brilliant set of speakers for the price. I’ve had this for a few months now and they’re still going strong. They’ve had just about every genre of music played on them and i can say now that the sound quality doesn’t drop at all. It comes with a remote, but unfortunately, it only controls the volume and the base levels and provides no functionality for changing the track, which is slightly annoying. However, other than that, it’s a brilliant piece of kit and it’s defiantly well worth the money.

Left this review for a fair few months because i have seen other people post something a long the lines of ‘bought this, died a month later’i think it’s incredible, no frequency noise, no nothing, beautiful bass, amazing sound, would recommend to everyone and anyone :).

I like the product very much and it completes my setup but i have to leave it on eco mode as if i turn the power off i lose my settings which mean i have to sort out the bass level and rgb and the sound apart from this i really like it.

Overall i’m pleased with the gxt 658 system. It can be turned up quite loud with impressive results gaming with sound via a sound blaster-z card. It was easy to install with long cables on the rear speakers. The user manual is very minimal with very poor explanations for anything. Mine has a wiring fault on the orange centre/subwoofer cable that connects to the sound blaster z card in the pc, basically the red and white connectors are reversed. Easy to overcome, just plug red into white and vice-versa on the back of the subwoofer. I’m currently discussing the issue with trust support folks. Be sure to run the speaker connectivity tests in your sound card app or windows. Sound quality seems excellent for gaming and general use, not the best for music but acceptable. With a better user guide and improved cable build quality i’d have given it 5 stars, but as it is i think 4 is appropriate.

They deliver a very good sound and pack a punch when you want to annoy the neighbours. I use them mainly for gaming and i’ve never had any distortion while playing nor while listening to music. Don’t get me wrong, i’m not an audiophile but these sounds great to my ears. I would recommend these to anyone who wants a decent quality speaker set.

Only had these speakers setup for a few days and i am already greatly impressed by the performance. The speakers all have nice long wires so you can more or less set them up wherever you want. The audio quality is really good and there is nice sounding deep bass which you can also control with the included remote. If you are looking for great audio at a great price then i highly recommend these.

  4. This set of speakers are amazing for its price. It can go very loud especially when it is plugged into my computer. The great thing about these speakers is that you can use it on your phone as well. The cable lengths of each speaker are actually very long which is not what i expected. I don’t have a sound card on my computer i just use the ones that came with my graphics card and it still works. I just use the green and one of the black cables instead of the full four. From what i hear i am sure that it works the same :).

      • However the only problem i had was that the remote didn’t allow you to change song, so you had to move over to your phone to change song. Other than that, perfect for it’s price.

    • I didn’t receive a remote control so i can’t use it to it’s full potential.

    I really like this product but all of the cables for each individual speaker was coiled up in such a way that upon opening them and trying to unfold the cable you would find it was already tangled / knotting, the cables are also quite thin and were heavily bent while they had been rolled up for boxing and i am already worried that if i am not careful the cables will break the next time i have to set up my computer some where else ( when i next move ) which for me could be soon / often. I was also a bit perplexed that there was no way to know what the maximum volume was, though i would not want to use it, i would like to know what it was so i could avoid it, though there is a reset button on the remote. Overall a pretty decent product besides the poorly coiled cables, though i have only been using for a few days now so if anything is to change i will update my review.

    • This would be a good product if it wasn’t that the back left case is faulty. I would have to ship this whole thing back for a replacement of a single piece :(.

    • This is a bunch of plastic that is overpriced even at this point. No idea what the sound is like as my card would even acknowledge the speakers. Even so, it just feels like a plastic 80’s stereo with leds. Won’t ‘trust’ another of their products. Should have noticed the damaged box says ‘compatiable with 360 and ps3’ probably been hanging round a warehouse since 2013 unable to shift. (for good reason) the cables are hard fixed to the speakers, also of very poor quality. I wish i had a comment about the sound as my sc did not accept the speakers after several attempts. Serves me right for going on the cheap. Replaced with a logitech z906. Far superior, get what you pay for i suppose.

      • Bass goes up to 11 – and then some. But extremely dissapointing mid and high tones. Wish i had bought a nice sound bar for my pc instead. Like most things however i can’t be arsed to return it – and who’s fault is that really?. I do like the twisty knob though : d.

    • This speaker has amazing bass to shake the house. I changed my gaming and movie experience. It has cool blue led light which reponds to bass and can be switched on/off with a small remote. You can change bass, surround and volume on the remote setting. I would suggest connecting small around the room until the sound is just right.
