This compact 2.1 speaker system from Genius appears similar to something we had have needed in our room while we about 13, with shiny metallic red cones and gloss black cases. As good as 2 satellites, there is a chunky square sub woofer and a provided amplifier that feeds complete 3 speakers. There is no path to switch among the standard and auxiliary insert - when you plug something in to the 3.5mm aux insert at the back, it immediate assumes over from the main stereo phone inputs.
The scheme chucks out lot of sound at complete whack but does not function good at less than 1/2 volume - mid-tones are bewildered if you dilute it much under half way. Sound quality is instead harsh, with a tearing shape to few high sounds. Enhancing bass volume assists to soften the entire sound, but it deficiencies subtlety, so you acquire a flat thud instead than the reverberating slap of drum skins. The speakers are functional for music; just do not look them to reproduce each subtle information of your favorite Pink Floyd album.
In fairness, the adjust is planned for gaming. If your chief priority is booming explosions, they do a exactly decent job, and their positional sound is fairly good, creating it fairly simple to hear somebody arriving up on your left or right. The 1250s' cost is appealing, but the Logitech X-230 2.1 set costs less and audios much richer.
