Look fairly nice but for $259.99 USD I could get some nice Klipsch's for not much more.

Or some sick sennheiser headphones which I would honestly prefer for gaming over a 2.1

I always cringe when I see these kind of desktop speaker sets. Call me crazy, but when the surface area of the sub is three times that of the rest of the speakers combined, real sound quality isn't the goal anymore.

You wouldn't want the Klipsch's compared to these.

It's good to see a new player in the computer speakers arena. This sphere of computer peripheral has been largely neglected. I'm glad to see someone making more SPEAKERS instead of more lousy headphones sets.
