2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing with static noises

Pros: -Good mids and highs
-Deep bass
-Perfect for gaming, home entertainment, music

Cons: -Very expensive!
-Subwoofer is ridiculously too big in small room
-Creates static noises, even with dedicated sound card plugged in

Other Thoughts: Maybe this speaker clearly has a problem with static noises because of DSP, even though I have own ASUS Xonar DX Sound Card. I even have Logitech Z333 2.1 Speaker and clearly doesn't make any static noises whatsoever and I am very happy with Logitech speaker system!

Indeed, this speaker is very expensive and this probably designed for room-filling, though the speaker does get very loud even when listening to comfortable volume effect. So I don't recommend this speaker for average consumers and average gamers.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Speakers < $200

Pros: Trust me, I read all the reviews, and all of the specs of the Z623, the Klipsch Promedia 2.1, and the Corsair SP2500. I saw the Klipsch at Best Buy and I was not impressed. If you sample the reviews from 10 years ago, you will see that the Promedia 2.1 from 10 years ago is not the same speaker they make today. This combined with some model related problems steered me away from those. As for the Logitech, they are quite decent. I would take them over the Klipsch. The Corsairs are a different animal altogether. They are beefy with super attention to detail. The sound is amazing. The control pod is cool as well. Its not wonder they won maximum pc kick a-s-s award.


***UPDATE**

These speakers have been rocking Ozzy and Black Sabbath for the past two years at 90% volume. Barely get warm. If you can find them,,,,buy them.

Cons: None, so far real happy with them.

Other Thoughts: Personally think they are the second best speakers ever made--The best being the Z-5500

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: Clean sound and hard-hitting subwoofer. I used this for my HTPC setup and this combined with my projector served me and my family well when we had movie night. It was like being in a theater and all of our movies would come to life, you could feel it. I'd see these are equal to a decent ~$300 soundbar system.

Cons: My review is not just based on how this thing sounded when it worked but also on reliability. I had this system for two years and RARELY moved it or unplugged it. Well just this year when we moved, I set it up and reconnected it to my PC and the subwoofer doesn't work. I thought maybe there was some type of setting issue because the other speakers were working so I updated the firmware to the latest and I turned on and off several time the night mode (it's been known to disable the subwoofer). and none of it worked.

Other Thoughts: Now I'm stuck with a $250 desktop speakers without a working subwoofer. I was extremely disappointed because I read all the reviews online and in magazines and I took a risk with a company that is not known for its speakers and I came out on the losing end. My Logitech 5.1 system that I have for 7 years w/my gaming PC is still going strong.

At the end of the day, reliability goes a long way and these are simply not reliable - there was no rhyme or reason why these stopped working, not physical damage and no loose wiring (I opened up the subwoofer box to check) - probably a faulty logic board but my speakers are out of warranty and the cost to ship and fix is not worth it. As such I cannot recommend these speakers - too bad because I love corsair (my CPU cooler, case, PSU and fans are all Corsair brand).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speaker Set

Pros: Crisp, clear mids and highs. Subwoofer is matched well with this set. Has enough power to rattle things across your house.

Excellent fit and finish and build quality - something I've come to expect from Corsair.

Cons: Control pod is low resolution & doesn't have very good viewing angles. Not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this system. Sound quality is excellent for music and movies. I don't do a ton of action gaming so I haven't experienced this system for gaming. I will say that the highs and mids are incredibly crisp and clean - virtually no distortion at all. The sub hits hard all the way through the volume band. Keep in mind I'm running off of motherboard audio (Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H)

I would highly recommend this system to anyone. The subwoofer is massive and the satellites/tweeters are large as well, so this isn't the set for someone with a small desk.

5 out of 5 eggsSP2500

Pros: This system is extremely good. I finally decided to pony up and buy one. The mid-ranges are very clean and clear and they will push as loud as you want them to with no distortion at all. The tweeters are amazingly clear and tight. They balance the system so well. The controller is simple and easy to use. I love the headphone output. However, by far the best part of the system is the subwoofer. Even with the mid and high at about 1/4 throttle, the subwoofer is incredibly powerful. I have the system in a large room and the entire room is filled with delicious bass. You can feel the sheer amount of air that the sub moves. Makes me wonder how far the excursion is. A glass on my desk rattles at half volume with the sub in the blue. I haven't pushed the system any further, mainly because I value my hearing, but I am confident it would perform excellently.

The system is very well built and sturdy, unlike other systems in a comparable price range. The system took about a week of breaking in before it really reached its full potential, so don't worry. The sub took a LOT to break in, but now it is amazing. If you just got the system and it sounds flat, don't worry and don't RMA it just yet. Play some music with a broad dynamic range for a week or so before you make a judgement. I've had it around 6 moths ish and I love it.

10/10, would definitely buy again.

Cons: None whatsoever

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound!

Pros: I'm no expert on audio, but I know how my music should sound! These 2 speakers that include tweeters really hit those highs and mids for clear sound. The subwoofer is an absolute monster(possibly an exaggeration)! The sub works best when faced towards where you are sitting and the same goes with the speakers; line them up on a B line to your ears and they sound great!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Have only used the default sound settings. The others don't seem to be anything special.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding Value

Pros: In daily use for more than three years, mostly at moderate volume, without a hitch. Build quality of all components is impressive. Subwoofer is solid - no buzzing or rattling.

Excellent sound quality driven from Realtek ALC889 analog output. The SP2500 satellites rival monitor speakers costing three times as much. The silk dome tweeters have a very smooth sound that is ideal for the close-distance listening in a computer scenario. Satellite amps are also very good. I plug my Grado SR-325 ($350) headphones directly into the Realtek, then into the SP2500 headphone jack. Sound quality from the SP2500 is almost the same as the straight Realtek (which is very good to start with). Note that the Grados are low impedance headphones. The SR2500's will drive my high impedance Sony MDR-CD160 phones easily wheras the ALC889 can't.

Plenty of clean power. I have the subwoofer located in the corner of a bedroom. This location gives +9dB of bass - all that is sanely needed in this environment.

A nice surprise is the DSP and EQ programs. The DSP programs work well - comparable to my Yamaha Home Theater Receiver (which cost 2x as much as the SP2500). The EQ programs are simple, not parametric, but works well.

The control console is easy to use. It has a separate subwoofer level that helps fine-tune the system to the room environment.

Cons: None - good job Corsair!

Other Thoughts: I wish that Corsair would offer a 5.1 version.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: These speakers are seriously loud. I would say even louder than my cars audio system - which has a premium Bose system - with all the windows closed. If you were throwing a house party, these speakers would be an ample source of music. You simply wont believe the sound that comes out of these speakers.

Crisp and clear from the lowest to the highest volumes. Bass is strong, especially with the Dynamic Pop program. You can feel the bass through the floor from upstairs. Even at lower volumes, bass is still full and strong.

A few program and EQ settings to fine tune your sound.

Separate controller for power, volume and other settings is convenient. It also leaves the speakers looking nice and clean with no lights or knobs on them.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The box says 232 watts and the booklet, which has the same exact graphic on it, says 220 watts. Not sure why, but you won't care either once you fire these speakers up.

Comes with two satellite (speaker) stands, for aiming the speakers more directly towards your ears, and a few rubber feet that are used to mount your controller to your desk if you so choose.

When I first tested these speakers for volume, my wife (who was upstairs) was shocked to hear how loud they were and even commented that she thought the basement door was open.

I have a ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo sound card in my rig. I used the speaker system once just to test a before and after installation of a sound card and it is noticeably louder with one (of course).

These speakers are fantastic on their own, but mated with a sound card, they're simply amazing.

5 out of 5 eggsUnderpriced?

Pros: Very clean highs. Powerful lows. All around clarity.

Comes with a wonderful controller unit that has separate dials for bass and volume as well as EQ, Mode, and Line In options. Very easy to use. Doesn't take up too much space. Attractive design.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: I wasn't aware how subpar my old speakers were until I heard these. I honestly think they might even sound better than the Bose system in my car, which is outstanding.

Didn't know Corsair made speakers before a buddy suggested I get these when I mentioned I was looking to replace my old Logitech 5.1 setup. He got the SP2500 set after coming form the same Logitech set that I had and said that they were some of the best computer speakers he had ever heard. Very pleased that I trusted his judgement.

The only issue I have found is that switching from Late Night Mode (sub off) back to default has to be done twice to get the sub to turn back on. It's a minor annoyance that could likely be fixed with a firmware update.

5 out of 5 eggsthese are the best speakers ive ever owned

Pros: These can go as loud as anyone would need them to go and beyond, with great clarity.

the "remote" is very convenient for turning the sound up or down while the screen is fullsized in a movie or game without having to revert back to the desktop

the cables are high quality and not those cheap cables that tangle easily.

Cons: no cons

Other Thoughts: more than happy with these speakers.
