To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought these in late March of 2021. Failed August 4, 2021. Will not turn on. Checked the power cable at both ends, as well as tried different outlets. Still won't turn on. Not impressed! How does one go about warranty replacements?
My expectations were low for a budget-oriented bookshelf speaker, but these failed to live up to even those. After opening the box and plugging them in, I was immediately disappointed by a drone of bass and unintelligible mids and highs. Setting the bass to -4 and treble to +4 on the knobs is still very bass heavy. The highs are also very directional, and unless these are pointed directly at your head, the problem is even worse. My cheap Bluetooth speaker that I take camping with me - which cost just $45 CAD - has substantially clearer, flatter sound. And that thing, in addition to being half the price, is also battery powered, waterproof, and the size of a chocolate bar. The performance of these speakers is, in a word, unacceptable. This would have been helped by tweeters, of course, but the bits of plastic that are meant to look like dome tweeters are not connected to anything. While the product description doesn't explicitly say that the speakers are two-way, it also doesn't explicitly say they are one-way, either. I would describe that as misleading, and disappointing.
I initiated my return 15 minutes after opening the box.
Rate features: Sound quality and value for money, both terrible. Cheaper, portable, waterproof, call-answering Bluetooth speakers give clearer, flatter sound. Clearly terrible value for money if that's the case. There is also a place for a specific rating on "volume control"? I don't know what to say here. You turn the knob and the noise gets louder. I guess I can't fault that, but the noise is terrible, so keep it set to zero for best results.
Don't waste your money These speakers are complete garbage. They look good, that's about all they got going. Sound Quality is horrendous. Even for a cheaper end speaker these were extremely disappointing. Your better off using earbuds 🙄
Edit. It gets worse ... After about a month they started getting progressively quieter. They now make next to no sound. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!
Not only does the seller email you to write a good review constantly, then apologize for asking then ask another 5 times. Fine you got your wish seller. These speakers wont turn on after 4 months of use and im clearly not the only one with this problem in the reviews. Unless youre a fan of paperweights then do not buy these
These speakers had just about all the right stuff , and then they failed , miserably . Upon opening these are packed very well and they look amazing , I just wish they would have sounded amazing. Anyway during my initial listening I found them to be raspy and harsh , almost painful to the ears. However I believe in giving everything a fair chance , so I checked all my connections and they were all perfect . I thought , ' well just let them run in a while ' so I did and they did start to open up slightly and after a few hours they became almost tolerable !! , Then evening fell and I turned off the speakers and thought the new light of another day might bring with it a slightly better view of the sound . So , next morning I thought , ' lets try the USB and Coax connections !! I proceeded to connect my coax cable from my Oppo 103D and the USB to my Mac Mini and thought lets try these connections. I reached for the remote and pressed the power button and nothing ... at all . I figured , O-- well batteries probably need changing so I flipped the switch on the back to off , then on . A light flickered and then nothing -- at all -- . I checked my power strip to make sure all was good , and still nothing. Sadly these must have passed away during the night . These had so much going for them , RCA // Optical // Dig. Coax // USB & 5.0 BT and with all that they also had a remote that took real batteries !! not a 'watch battery ' but an actually battery , AAA to be precise . The fiber mid-driver the dome tweeter the front port , the wood look side panels , all great . I just wish they would have worked , but the did not even last a whole day. In closing you will find I rarely write anything negative , if I don`t like something , so be it . If I am blown away by something , I will let the world know. In this case I needed to write this correct review because I guess I was the first person to buy these. Second reason was to sincerely thank Amazon for there continued patience in my search for a pair of speakers that not only sound great , but also look the part . These have a chance , but only if they have quality parts and a slightly larger tweeter would not hurt. Take care , and enjoy the sounds of the world , if you can . Dreamer
idk what everyone else is talking about. Right out of the box I could they were of the cheddar quality . pure cheese. They must have listened to old am radio. Sound quality is horrible my phone speaker is better. The deep rich sound is not there. The only way to get sound separation is to use better speakers no joke. real tweeters probably would have done the trick. I want what everyone else was smoking or the speakers they used that sounded so good. The shipping was fast. But u get what u pay for. And I am gonna pay for some, Altec Lansing next time or rite when I am done writing this.. My fault for trying to save a few bucks. i not only give this product 2 thumbs down. They it get the finger as well..... Sorry nothing personal
