Well worth the moneyprobably the best speakers i could have bought with a budged of 60-130 pounds. And the fact that it has bluetooth makes it even more amazingupdate on june 2:1 socket stopped working after 2 months. But i contacted amazon and they will send me a new speaker.
Great speakers for the price. I am impressed with the speakers for the price. They are very solidly made, the sound is better than i would expect for the cost. The connectors are good and the cables to the speakers are a good length for a desk, although they might be a little short if you were planning on using this around a tv.
Now editing my review after my purchase in may 2013 (after over 5 months). Still as happy as ever and would gladly recommend to friends. However the price has gone up since then, i bought them at £47. The price increase is probably due to the high demand, because, well, they’re so good. Anywhere around £55 is standard for these speakers i think i just got a good deal. Even at the current price £60 i would still say they are worth the money. So, as for my 5 month review. I have decided to edit my review because there has been a minor fault with the subwoofer that was down to knob that turns the bass up and down having a loose connection. This loose connection caused the subwoofer to emit a crackling noise when, and only when, you turned the bass up and down. After some angry wiggling it sorted itself out but this was covered by the warranty anyway so i am in the process of getting them replaced with tribal uk who i would recommend highly. Aside from that slight issue which was most likely my fault, the only other minor issue i found while using them was that if you turn both the volume and the bass up to max, the bass does overcome the volume detracting from songs. But believe me when i tell you you wont be playing music at that volume in your house unless you intentionally want to both seriously annoy your neighbors and destroy your eardrums. Easy way to combat this is to just turn the bass down a little.

“Trust Tytan 2.1speakers system, Great for the price, Brilliant sound quality, but issues with ‘smart power management’, I love these speakers, Trust 17966 Tytan 2.1 Speaker Set – A Good Set of Speakers, Absolute steal for the money.”
Quality speakers very good value. I bought these speakers and they are well built, quality sound, and if you are thinking of buying speakers for your pc or tv i would recommend these, best speakers i have ever used crystal clear sound even at high volume and the bass is amazing, i was going to purchase them from argos, but bought them from amazon and they were £5.
I was previously using a 15w set of logitech 2. 1 speakers, they did well but lacked punch and were getting old and temperamental so i purchased the tytans. Out of the box they look fantastic. Simple but striking design that is understated yet stylish. The quality is very high, the plastics solid and the joints tight. The remote is a nice weight, and the volume dial turns very smoothly. Plug them in and the impression does not change. Very powerful and balanced sound. There is plenty of punch across the range, but the sound can also be subtle and quiet when volume is not needed. The bass dial is standard across most speaker systems now, but was lacking on my previous speakers and it really does allow you to fine tune the overall treble / bass balance. I’m not really an audiophile, but i do like to have clear crisp sound that has depth and clarity. To my ears these speakers have all of those qualities in abundance: to my mind the sound is as good as the 500w home cinema system we have in the living room (just lacks the absurd volume).
Trust 17966 2. 1 speaker set. At less than £45 this offers great value for money. The satalite speakers which are 81/2ins tall, have 2 speakers in each, which offer the high end and middle range. The bass is dealt with a 10in square single sub-woofer which the controls and power are also dealt with. Don’t have this at more than 3/4 volume as it becomes boomy, muffled and distorted. There is a slave volume controller which is cable connected, so you can place this near to hand. Brilliant as a desktop pc sound output system and ok as a starter or small space hi-fi piece of kit. The sound is really amazing, (for the price).
